Were they looking for drugs in my system or came across it? - May 14th 2014, 05:58 AM

Last week I received a blood test prior to starting new antipsychotic medication and it was a regular routine test which included liver functions, lipids and other things I'm unsure of.

On Monday, my dad received a phone call claiming I have glandular fever and they found THC traces in my system as well - (yes, I've learned my lesson and my punishment is random drug tests at random intervals).

Now my question is, did they seem to come across marijuana looking into my lipids, liver or something else or the psychiatrist wrote down to look for any drugs/substances in my system.. in other words, a drug test included in a blood test. If the latter, is that part of the routine tests that psychiatrist inundate for the pathologist to look out for? Because if is, I'll be damned but I don't blame them.

Routine blood tests shouldn't show results of THC in your system, usually regular blood tests just check for blood cell count, cholesterol, blood sugar, etc. I believe. I think they must have done a drug test as well which would make sense if you are going to be starting some anti-psychotic medication. This drug can be detected for up to 13 days according to This Source.

And here you are living, despite it all.

Routine blood tests do not show traces of drugs. But like Nicole pointed out, they must have done the drug text as you are going to be starting some anti-psychotic medication.
I hope you did not get into too much trouble.!
