Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

What question do you have about a hair follicle test?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I read up on the test and a standard one checks up to 90 days. So roughly after 90 days the test won't return a positive? Also does drugs stay in your hair follicle forever...meaning that if I were to cut my hair bald, would the new growing hair have a positive?

It will take several minutes to type a complete answer and I will post it once it is complete.

You may receive an automated offer for a phone call and it is entirely up to you whether to communicate by phone.

I will post again shortly.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.
