I recently found a baggie with some white/yellish

Hi, I recently found a baggie with some white/yellish crystals in my friends backpack. It looked old, and the crystals looked melted... almost like sugar. I smelled inside the back and it had kind of a sickly sweet smell, not very strong, and not anything I have ever smelled before in my life. I want to get a test kit to determine what it is. What is the best kit I can buy to test it? Also, I have these:http://www.amazon.com/Easy-Home-ECDOA-7124-12-Panel-Instantly/dp/B00DY7YY1W/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1462270220&sr=8-3&keywords=drug+test+kitfor urine testing. Is there any way that I could put water in that cup, and add the drug? Then maybe it would detect the drug and show up on the urine panel so I could see what it is. I assume if it was heroin or something, the urine panel test would pick up the straight heroin in the cup and show a reading, right? I just really want to figure out what is in this baggie. There is only a tiny bit of it, probably only enough for one little testing strip or whatever is used to find out what it is. Thank you!

A family member has a story of meth/meth type abuse. I have

A family member has a history of meth/meth type abuse. I have noticed notably similar behavior patterns as when the known abuse occurred. Circumstances do not allow for expensive laboratory/hair testing, so I purchased a 5 pack, 4 panel kit. Circumstances also make asking for/demanding a voluntary urine sample more than a bad idea. I took two tests myself, knowing that my prescribed medication would show a positive reading but nothing else would. In the first test, I collected a clean sample. As expected, I tested positive for my medication and negative for everything else. In the second test, I collected a sample from the toilet--a toilet in my home that I ensured was free from any chemicals for some time prior to the test. That test also showed a positive reading for my medication and no others. After this, I was eventually able to collect a similar sample from a partially plunged out (to reduce water content) durine a time when the questionable behavior was present. That test produced a positive result for only one drug class--AMP--the one I suspected was being abused. The family member in question is on (and has never abused) any medications such as cold remedies or antidepressants. Is it more likely than not that this positive result is, in fact, a positive result?

I was given a urine test and it came back positive for methamphetamine. I have a prescription for didrex that I take every day. Could that have caused the false reading because I have NEVER done any meth and I don't know what to do about this. Needless to say, I am very upset and devastated about this false accusation.

I took an extacy pill, a drug I am not familiar with, at

I took an extacy pill, a drug I am not familiar with, at 11pm last night. I wasn't out club in and drinking, exerting all kinds of energy, I was home with my boyfriend, but neither he nor I fell asleep. But I kept my self hydrated through the evening/morning.At 11am today, I felt sluggish and lethargic and unmotivated( all anticipated side effects of mdma), however, I'm currently a graduate student at USC, and missing this afternoons lecture was not an option. So I did a few bumps of methamphetamine( a drug I AM quite familiar with) and I felt rite as rain as I sat listening. But towards the end, my heart began racing, palpaltating, pounding through my chest!I gave myself an IM 2mg Ativan shot in the thigh. I still feel like my heart might give out at any moment and I have sever stomach cramping.Do you think that those 3 drugs in that timespan could overlap enough to fuse adverse side effects?I this the normal comedown feeling from the two?Basically, how long do I need to wait until I can be sure that those medications half life have been reached?How long until I can stop panicking that I'm going to die?The psychological effects don't worry me, I know exactly what they are and exactly why they make me feel the way they do... Neurochemistry and neurobiological psychology happen to be my field of expertise.Please tell me what I need to know and please tell me what I don't.Thank you so very much

I had a drug screening (urine) It came up I was using methamphetimines . I was taking wellbutrin to stop smoking along with what the doctor had prescribed for my back pain oxycodone and oxycontin. I take other medications wihich the doctor is aware ofand he said it didn't matter. none of these drugs would come up as using methamphetamines. can you give me your opinion?

I have some concerns about a fellow colleague of mine. he

hi there. i have some concerns about a fellow colleague of mine. he disagrees about drug testing in the work place and depending on the organization or corporation you work for/with, one can be tested at any given time for obvious reasons. now you aretalking with someone who was the D.A.R.E mascot, who believed no one "did" drugs or that at least her friends weren't "doing it". that aside, i'd like to gain some clarity as i am concerned my fellow colleague (who is a dear friend) is not taking this drugtesting thing seriously. my question is: when being "drug tested" what is being "tested" consist of and forgive my ignorance, how long can a drug or drugs stay in ones system? i am almost reluctant to recognize the list of drugs being explored might be morethan the common one such as marijuana; but in addition prescription drugs and possibly cocaine and methamphetamine. i have done some research and aside from the drug testing concern, i am far more absorbed with the well being of this person. with that said,i fear if he loses his job then we are facing a far worse situation-issues and concerns will only be exacerbated. ideally, i'd like to have some answers to the aforementioned, then my next step will most likely be in the form of intervention/support of somekind. any guidance or advice is much appreciated. thank you in advance for your time
