Q: How long does it take for Restoril to get out of your system after a month? (upcoming drug screen)

I have been taking Restoril for about a month and took Vicodin for about the same time. It has been 11 days since the last Vicodin, but only two days since the Restoril was stopped. I have a drug screening for a new job coming up next week or so...is that enough time for the medications to get out of my system and pass the test OK?

Hey there

 

I guess the first question is...are you taking these meds because you have been prescribed them? 

 

If they are prescribed to you by a doctor and you have a medical reason for taking them...then you may have some protection.  But if not...then it is up to the potential employer as to what action to take.

 

Here is some general information about drug testing that you may want to read.
