My doctor requires a urine drug test to be done at each and every visit. However, at my last vist, I was having a bit of a tough time going, so the tech told me not to worry about it we'd do something else just this one time. (As if they weren't really supposed to be using this test and were only doing so because they were ready to close for the day) I was told to take a big drink of water, getting my tongue really wet and to hold this stick type thing in my mouth (without letting the chewing gum I had in my mouth touch it) I held it there just a couple minutes and then it was put into a small vial containing liquid then sealed.
I didnt even know they made a drug test like this. But Im pretty confident the gum in my mouth did come into contact with the side of the stick as I was taking it out of my mouth. Should I be worried? Does anyone know why this type test is rarely used and what are the benefits / limitations of this drug test?
Thanks in advance for your input
