Okay so I'm doing a favor for my dad and I'm not successful so far. The thing he asked me to do is find out which prescription medicines are considered "drugs" and can show up on a drug test as illegal. The reason why he asked me is because when we were over in Europe this past month, he went to the dentist and since he has a gum disease the dentist prescribed to him a medicine that isn't available in the US, well it is but they are still doing experimental trials and haven't released it to the public. He works for the government and if he takes anything that's considered a drug, he can get in trouble for. Last time he had taken a prescription sleeping pill, but the prescription was not from a US doctor and it showed up on a drug test, and they told him that he cannot take medicine from a non US doctor and pretty much told him to stop taking it!! Can they even do that? Anyways I was like that can't be right but apparently he doesn't care enough to go challenge it and he just went to his US doctor to get a prescription from her, but with this he can't because it's something not available here in the US. Lol anyways...The ingredients in the medicine are spiramycin and metronidazole (both antibiotics). so pretty much can someone help me find a list of all drugs that show up on drug tests? If anyone can guide me to a site that explains it, I'd appreciate it SO MUCH! He's probably being paranoid, I mean what drug tests screens for antibiotics?? But he really wanted to be safe and even wants me to show him where I get the info...
