Re: sarcoidosis

a med like pred probably wont even show up on the type of drug screen they do for employment. the test is set for only certain types of possible illegal drugs or any narcotics or barbiturates, those types of meds or drugs? they do ask you before any testing tho if you are taking any type of medication. this is just a standard thing they ask since some meds can impact others to a certain degree. but pred is NOT the type of drug that anyone doing a drug screen would worry about(it is just rxed for Soooo many different condtions). i do think you will be just fine. just make certain to fill out that form where you list any meds you are currently taking correctly, don't leave anything out. that is what can cause problems for some people with regards to how the results come out. not disclosing everything they are taking, even certain types of cold meds can give a false positive for meth since its make up is the ephedrine?

just disclose any medical conditions you have been Dxed with and any meds and you should be just fine. good luck with the job,marcia
