I am in the running for a good Govt. job & required to take a drug test. I take: 20mg oxycodone daily + 1mg valium + 20mg Lexapro + Ambien regularly (not every night). I never actually thought I'd get this far in the interview process so I didn't really consider this an issue until now. I've applied for so many jobs - I can't count the number. I'm an "older" electrical engineer & we are all being replaced by cheaper labor, ANYWAY.............
My question: Will I not make the cut based on these test results, because this looks bad for me even though Dr. prescribed?
Should I try to detox for a few days before the test and tough it out? If yes, how many days?
This potential job would be the answer to many prayers for me financially and offers great benefits including insurance. I have been out of work for 9 months and consider myself a tough gal. I'm 43 - I hope to still have many good working years in me despite my degenerative disk disease.
All good ideas welcome.
