Customer Question
I have a...

I have a fingernail drug test that my ex wife is wanting me to submit too. I have been clean for 2 weeks however prior to that I used Methamphetamines 2 to 3 times per week. Is there anything that I can do since I am clean now or am I better off to admit the usage and hope for the best?

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

there is nothing that I can do?
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

no, you can't get the drugs out of your finger nails

you can cut your nails down really really short

they can then ask for hair follicle testing.

you can then shave your head.

but then you look very guilty then

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
