I have a job offer from a very large company. They are also a LAB and do drug testing for other companies. My position is technical and has nothing to do with the lab or lab areas, its in the computer tech field.
When they send the formal offer they will require me to go to one of their local labs to give a drug test. My question is I am on a perscription for methadone. Have been for 5 years, (had a back injury and very stupid doctor who perscripbed this stuff, and have had a hard time weaning off)
But although its a perscription, its normally given to get people off illegal drugs and Im certain they would change their mind on the offer if they knew Im on methadone.
Its a very low dose, never has effected my work. I dont even feel the stuff actually. But its really helped with pain management.
Normally I wouldnt worry about it since they are not supposed to report drugs if there is a perscription for it... at least thats my understanding , however this company is the lab! and although Im not going to work in the lab, they could certainly email or call the manager and report this to him, and I beleive most people wouldnt want to hire someone on methadone no matter what the reason.
