    Where do you live? Some companies accept a current medical card and only do a pee test.

    if i'm not mistaking ..companies like Like JB hunt, SNI..cr england pride and gordon are doing the hair tests ..And i'm pretty sure the test is not a DOT requirement ..these companies are doing it for their own records ..only the urine tests will be reported to DOT.. I remember i did some research on this a while back and this is what i remember . .Try another company to start with and make sure they don't require the follicle test..
    And always remember "drugs and trucks don't match" . Good luck !

    Try to talk to the safety guy at Pride and explain the situation. They can't ruin your career because you had a health issue 10 months ago requiring you to take meds. Maybe they can't hire you, fine. Tell them to clear your name or you'll file a dispute for slander.

    Im telling you, had a buddy go thru this get a doctors note. Let them get results, give them the note and if they have half a brain theyll hire y ou, if they dont then your better off not working for them in first place.

    Like others said hair test shouldn't get reported. Any company you walk in the door will send you for their own pre-hire test ( hopefully just urine ) so I don't understand why the second company is requesting your results from the first.

    Ok guys thanks. Yea like I said I don't do drugs. I would never do anything to screw up my cdl that I just got. The hair test was for pre employment but watkins and Shepard needs to request my drug test results from pride transport. I already talked to safety at pride transport as they already know I used to take medication.

    Citalopram should NOT cause a positive on a drug test. Yes, it is a scheduled 1 drug. That only means you need a prescription to get it. It is not a narcotic.

    So if what you are saying is right, you could be the victim of a "false positive." Easiest way to disprove it? Get a lab to do you hair test again. You still have the same hair on your body that you had when the first test was taken, right?:biggrin_25525:

    Yes I do. I don't know what else it could be as I don't do drugs. I have no reason to lie

    dale! You are repeating yourself! Are you on DRUGS or something? (JUST KIDDING, honest!):biggrin_25523:

    As I said, it could be a "false positive." They are rare, but they do happen.

    Wait a minute here! Now I'm repeating myself. Am I on drugs? Well, actually yes, yes I am. Probably the only thing keeping me alive. But then I don't have a CDL anymore, nor will I ever again. Getting old SUCKS!:biggrin_2557:
