If the medication has helped you with your depression, anxiety, etc then by all means talk to your doctor and let him know why you took your husbands and that it helped and ask for a script of your own.

Otherwise when you go in for your drug test simply tell them that you have been taking it so that if it does show up there is an explanation for it. With any luck it will be let go at that and they won't want to see the script in your name.

Hi Worried,

Yes talk to your doctor. If it helps you, he will most likely prescribe it. If you are worried about it being in your system, don't take anymore before your test. They are usually looking for narcotics and illegal drugs. They might not even notice the anxiety med. But I would talk to the doc to be on the safe side.

I hope you get the job.

Hugs, Karen
