Hi

What is your question exactly?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I was asking if the swab for metabolism would pick up traces of the alcohol (beer) consumed and routinely be made part of the report. I'm not supposed to drink at all with the meds I'm on.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 6 months ago.

NO.

It would not pick up alcohol.

It is a different test entirely.
