Hi, I’m new so please go easy on me. I have done a ton of research on this but haven’t really found too much info on people who have actually passed these. If you have any experience with mouth swab testing please help! My friend is getting a mouth swab test on Wednesday and if she fails she is most likely going to jail. It is an instant swab (Alere). My friend went on a meth binge for a week after her last test (used probably 3/4 a gram total over the week) and also used a bit of cocaine Thursday(cocaine only Thursday). She then stupidly took a Vicodin Friday afternoon. All meth use was stopped Thursday around 10pm and Vicidin was taken Friday around 1pm. Her test is Wednesday at 9:30am.
Do you think she will be able to pass her mouth swab test? Her las swab test she passed with about 5 days clean…but hadn’t used the cocaine and Vicodin. She is just freaking out and would like to know if anyone else has passed and how many days clean they had. She also purchased some otc mouth swab kits but not sure how accurate they are. Thank you in advance…she plans on not using anymore as the anxiety and risk are too great.
Was her recent use heavy? If meth was used heavily, it might take slightly longer to get rid of anything that could make her fail. Truth be told oral swab testing isn’t the best option as drugs cannot be detected for too long in saliva. Most disappear after 1-2 days, however heavy use I would give it 2 or max 3 days extra. For cocaine and meth it can usually be detected up to 24 hours after using, however depending on ones metabolism and body chemistry this may differ.
It is difficult to say when it comes to things like this, because we all are affected differently by drugs but it is safe to say that if the use wasn’t heavy, after 3-4 days you should be good to go. If it was heavy try looking up some natural detox methods, just don’t buy any detox kits because they will give you same results as natural remedies, and hurt your wallet. My opinion is after 5 days, even of heavy use you should be fine. Hope everything goes your way and good luck!
Thank you for your responses! To answer your question her use was NO MORE then a gram within a 7 to 8 day period (snorting). She is going to take the OTC mouth swab tonight just to test it. I will let you guys know what happens on Wednesday either way as every time I look up results or info on mouth swab tests no one ever posts their results lol. Thanks again!
