Does anyone have personal knowledge of their clinic testing for lsd?  Nurses, do your clinics test for it?  Also, if someone tests positive for a drug, but they take a prescription med that could cause a false positive, what is done at your clinic?  I would really appreciate any help!  Thank you so much!

Somehelp - clinics do not test for LSD as a matter of course. If your drug screen has come up positive for something, and you know for certain that it's a false positive, you need to ask the clinic to send the sample off for GC/MS testing. This should confirm that you have not taken anything.

You will have to pay for this, but when the sample comes back drug free, the clinic will refund you the cost.

The UA's that most clinics do are not drug tests, they are just drug screens, and as such are not terribly reliable. The GC/MS is a proper drug test so will be much more thorough and reliable.

What have you taken that you think has given you a positive for LSD? Does your clinic actually test for LSD? Most don't.

Hi saphire, Thanks for your answer.  I had a meeting with my psychiatrist, who knows I'm on methadone.  She just prescribed my bupropion (Wellbutrin), and warned me that it has shown to cause false positives for lsd on drug tests.  I'm just paranoid about a false positive.  Since clinics don't usually test for lsd, that makes me feel better.  Thanks!

Yeah, I really wouldn't worry about it. As standard they usually test for cocaine, opiates, amphetamines, benzo's, methadone and bupe. Some test for pot also, but the vast, vast majority never test for LSD.

You can test bodily fluids for LSD, but no clinics that I know of do it.

It breaks down so quickly and the metabolites disappear so quickly that I didn't think they did hair tests for it.
