Hi, i am in a...
Hi, i am in a trial process, where the other part has requested a drug and alcohol hair testing. The results of the drug was negative, as i do not consume drugs, but i do take from time to time some alcohol. Nothing serious but only 2 days a month during the week end, where i get drunk with my friends and sometimes a beer after work. I am a little bit scared about potential results but i have been told that i should drink every day quite heavily in order to have a positive results, anyway i am still scared, can you help pls? Can you let me know what kind of consumption i would need to have to have a positive result on this test pls? Thanks

Btw i also use minoxidil at 5% twice a day (aprox 4ml in total) for my hair loss. I heard that the base of this treatment is with alcohol. Thanks

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. If this is a peth test, its a 3 week look back and will detect chronic daily drinking or binge drinking. You're likely to have a level associated with binge drinking

It is a hair test. Consumption is not daily. Sometimes i drink a couple of paints, besides the WEs consumption, but my concern is some of the skin products i use with alcoholic base, like deodorant or minoxidil at 5%, which they are absorbed by the blood and ends in my hair. I use this products on daily bases

Btw, what do you mean about peth test?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
btw, by binge drinking you mean, occasional consumption?
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. K., MD replied 7 months ago
No binge drinking is getting drunk

Then, That is what i understood. My concern then is how this can be understood by a judge in a children custody trial. I thought you could collect occasional consumption by this kind of tests...
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Normally these test would give positive or negative, so i am wondering what would be the result. Thanks
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Positive or negative For abusive consumption i mean..
Drug Testing Expert: Dr. K., MD replied 7 months ago
Postive. But it is a range so is likely to indicate daily abuse or binge
