I have reason to...

I have reason to believe that I have been injected IV by a drug laced with a poison and/or a bacteria which could eventually be lethal if not intervened early on. Where can I have it tested for both? I live in Washington DC

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No, not yet. Lisinopril 40 mg HCTZ 25 mg Inderal 20 mg and Neurontin 400 mg

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Those I mentioned no known allergies

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No, can't think of anything, oh, except HRT testosterone injection once per week

Hello -

It is easy to test for bacteria, as that would be detected in blood cultures, a very common test performed in labs and the hospital.

However, blood tests for an unknown "poison" is harder, unless you know what specifically you want tested. Standard tests will look for drugs of abuse, and other testing will depend upon your symptoms. If you have no symptoms, it is difficult to know what exactly to test for.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!

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.
