How can I pass a urine test for ambien? They specifically

Customer Question

How can I pass a urine test for ambien? They specifically check off this drug on the form for "further" lab testing. I need specific examples. Ie bleach crystals dropped in urine after I pee. Will that work? Any other ways such as detox drinks etc? Also
can I request to NOT BE TESTED FOR A CERTAIN DRUG? im not mandated by law to be at this IOP so can I refuse a certain drug test.

The only way to be certain of testing negative is to be drug-free (having not taken the Ambien) for at least 7 days. Most drug testing labs do a variety of validity tests to detect tampering (such as adding bleach of some other substance). While there are many so-called "detox" drinks, the reality is that NONE of these are actually going to do anything to prevent you from testing positive.

I'm not sure the reason you are being tested (employment, court ordered, probation, etc) so I can't really answer the "can I refuse?" question.
