Getting back to trucking/ training after 11 years away. Who does not require a hair follicle test? I kinda know where the refreshers are, but any info is good.

Freymiller? Good for a trainer on miles? (Once I am back a few months)

Here's a diary by one of our recent Freymiller guys; hope this helps!

Why are you concerned about a hair test?

My radar always goes up when someone's first questions pertain to "who does hair follicle testing?"

Usually speaking, the ones that inquire about hair follicle testing either are doing drugs, have recently done drugs or have shaven their heads or bodies. If you do drugs why even venture into a profession that does pre-employment and random drug testing. They do not belong in this career.

I am a pain management patient giving up my pain management for gabapentin and tylenol/advil only so I can come back to work. ... Gabapentin is also restricted if it isn't specified for pain relief. It can not be for seizures or you are out.

Thanks!

Anne, you misunderstood him. He doesn't have seizures. He will be taking "Gabapentin" to assist with his pain management. He will have it "specified" for pain. That way the medical examiner knows specifically why it is being taken.

Mea Culpa . . . I'm familiar with that medicine within the 'familia' and it shut my nephew out of obtaining his CDLA ... yet his 'was' for possible seizures. Thanks, O/S.

Hope then, that would be okay!

I'll go back to Triplesix..quiet!! ;)
