Finding a semi gps

Hello all. It's been a while sense I posted but I'm almost finished with training. The company im starting with is real stingy about staying on the route they give you. I was wondering if there was a semi GPS that you can plug road by road into to make my life a little easier when I'm on my own. Example: i can plug I-76 to HW-450 to I-34 to State Road cuz ext and it will route me on a exact route. Thanks all

Diluted urinalysis test

Yeah it's the the chemical in benadryl that's in Advil PM. I've heard ibuprofen and the other chemical can cause false positives on the initial immusary test but not the GS/MS conformation. Out of around 150 people only 2 flagged a false positive. And that was 1600 mgs of ibuprofen every day for 3 days. Not many sleep issues. But the school I went to the drive tests/practice sessions were around 11-2pm depending on schedules. I needed to be awake at 5am to drive 4 hrs to where I was needed. Wanted a good night sleep before a company road test and meeting them in person. Was 30 mins early 😊

Hey Matthew just giving u a hard time! When I was a bus driver we were tested about every 2 to 3 months. Once my test came back inconclusive! There wasn’t enough sample to test. I couldn’t give what I didn’t have. I would be a little worried about Benadryl. It can cause false positive results. If u have a problem with sleeping you’re gonna have a hard time adjusting out here. I’m new so don’t quote me but I don’t believe any of the pm stuff is allowed. Hope u get results back quickly so u can quit worrying!

Diluted urinalysis test

I diddent say I need to clean up my act. I said that as advice to anyone who needs to take a drug test because you cant fool a lab and its stupid to try. It's a criminal offense in some states.

Relax, unless you have a real concern that you didn't share with us. Otherwise what you did is done hundreds of times each week. I watched a guy one time who drank what seemed like a couple of gallons of water before he could pee. Remember, when you drink water it doesn't go straight to your kidneys and bladder. What you pee is urine, and it doesn't get straight water mixed with it unless you add it to the sample.

Take a deep breath, you're gonna be fine.

I’m really confused now! He had a diluted sample at previous job had to retest. Doesn’t believe the school drug test was good cause he paid 5000$ for school. He believes this sample will be diluted but wants to know if DOT will hold against him? Then he said he had Benadryl in his system which could blow a drug test. And then he states.....I need to clean up my act?

I've had to retest for "dilute negative" in the past and diddent add water then either. You cant XD they shut the sink off and the toilet is blue dyed. I wouldn't sneak anything in. Stupid. Just clean up your act and take your **** test. The only thing in my system was a few advil PMs the night before. So 400mg of ibuprofen and 68mg of whatever is in benadryl that makes you drowsy.

A lot of people have to drink a lot of fluids to produce.

It will not likely show up as "dilute" - which is typically found when you add water to a sample.

Diluted urinalysis test

Thanks for the insite. Donna, I went to a CDL school. Not company training. The school is required to drug test you before you enroll. I passed that drug test. But...a school you pay 5,000 to is more likely to not care about a "dilute negative" test. I was drug tested at a previous construction job and just had to retest because it was "negative dilute" I've passed all drug tests and never altered/substituted ext. If I have to retest that's fine. I was just wondering if a "negative dilute" was considered a fail in the eyes of DOT regulations.

Diluted urinalysis test

Hello all. I just got my CDL and went to my first company, passed the road test, filled out paper work ext. The thing is I did the road test and all the paper work before they sent me for a drug test. I diddent go to the bathroom that morning because I was guessing they would send me to the lab before anything. 2 hrs in to road test/paper work I was ready to pee my pants so I used the bathroom. Then I had to go to my drug test so I drank enough water/coffee until my bladder was full, went and peed. Urine was midway yellow and clear. I know if a sample is altered it's considered automatic positive and my career is over before it started. My question is, is dilute urine the same as altering? I did not alter my sample in any way, shape or form. But I also cant just pee on command after I just took my first **** of the day. Please help.
