A friend has been tested as positive for /ecstasy for a drug

Customer Question

A friend has been tested as positive for MDMA/ecstasy for a drug test made by the employer. He is being treated with Trazodone for depression with prescription from the doctor but he didn’t mention the medication when the test has been done. He will challenge now the second sample by mentioning the medication and providing the prescription. Can he get his job back after doing that?

I understand your concerns.
Does your friend take any amphetamines or adderall?

He takes only Trazodone

In that case, the best is to ask for a new test and a hair follicle test. They usually call a false positive after the test is back negative.
