Customer Question

I'm having an employer authorized hair follicle drug test. I currently don't have any hair on my body except for facial hair. Can they use hair from any where on the body? Ex. Eyebrows? Also, I've been taking a muscle relaxer, methocarbamol, for my back, is this going to cause a problem on the drug test?
JA: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?
Customer: They are going to do the test sometime this week. They have told me it will be a hair follicle test, but I don't know where they can take hair from.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I did cocaine 10 days ago recreationally.

Hello and welcome. I'm Dr Chambers

The can use your eyebrow hair.

The muscle relaxer won't show up on the test and neither will the cocaine.

So nothing to worry about here

Please let me know if you need any more information and please remember to rate my service to you.
