What would be the gap( in hours) between last intake of beer and expected time, when you would have to go test?

Are you on any medications?

Waiting for your reply…

Thanks

69.5 hrs would be total time... I’m on cipro antibiotic, gabapentin,trazadone
Drug Testing Expert: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

Well, Etg urine test looks for one of the by-products caused as breaks down of alcohol in the body. That substance is Ethyl Glucuronide. It’s commonly called EtG.

It can check alcohol ingestion as long as 3-4 days after intake, or about 80 hours after the liver metabolizes alcohol.

I am sorry, as duration would be just 69.5 hours, So you may not pass this test.

If possible, you can get tested after 80 hours, than you would pass this test.

The EtG detects the presence of ethyl glucuronide in urine. Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) is a direct metabolite in alcohol. Its presence in urine may be used to detect recent alcohol consumption.

If possible, you can try postponing the test time.

If you get test done, after 80 hours, than you would safely pass this test.

Hope this helped

exercise and drinking water doesn’t help?
Drug Testing Expert: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Well, it is good, that you have taken plenty of water, this would be helpful.

But as such, exercise would not have much effect on outcome of this test.

Once 80 hours, gap has been passed, than You would easily pass Ethyl Glucuronide (EtG) test.

So, i would suggest, that If possible, you can try postponing the test time.

If you get test done, after 80 hours, than you would safely pass this test.

God bless you and take care.

I just asked you if excercise and drinking water will help
Drug Testing Expert: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Yes, according to studies, Drinking more water and fluids, would surely help.

It can help to pass test. But, we can't be 100% sure, that you would pass test at a gap of 69.5 hours.

Though, drinking plenty of water, would surely help you.

As such, exercise would not have any effect on outcome of this test.

Take care.
