Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually they are going to be testing you for cocaine, along with 4 other drugs including marijuana, opiates, PCP and amphetamines. This is the simple 5 panel DOT test and it will be able to pick up on cocaine use which is as recent as 24 hours ago. Even a small amount of cocaine can be detected in the urine as it remains in the body for upto 3 days after a single use. Also the DOT tests are more sensitive then home testing kits in most cases.

So unfortunately if you are going to be tested today, chances are that it will come back as positive. The reason being that cocaine stays detectable in the urine for upto 3 days after a single use. I understand that you do not want to hear this but if i tell you anything less than the complete truth it would be unethical of me. Please remember that while leaving a rating.

Do you have any more questions?
