There are so many methods out there that it’s hard to tell whats fact or fiction. One of the oldest involves the use of a common over the counter pain killer, Aspirin. So, can you pass a drug test with Aspirin?
Time to find out!
The “How to” Methods
While researching how to pass a drug test with aspirin, we came across two methods. Lets go over these methods before we put them to the test.
- Start drinking water as early as possible
- Take 4 baby Aspirin 4 to 6 hours before your test
- 4 to 6 hour before the test take 2 Aspirins
- 2 hours before, take the next 2 aspirins
- Drink plenty of fluid to flush out your urine
As you can see both methods are almost identical. The first requires you take all lower dose pills at once. While the other breaks up taking regular strength aspirin into 2 sessions.
Warning: Aspirin is processed through the kidneys. at high doses, it is possible to cause kidney damage and/or disease. To learn more, check out this article by Harvard Health
It’s important to know that there are some health risks involved with taking aspirin at high doses. Educate your self and speak to your doctor before taking such risks.
How its supposed to work
Even though aspirin will not help detox or flush out THC, it may help you cheat a drug test.
The last study conducted on this discovered that taking aspirin a few hours before a drug screening interferes with testing. This study was also conducted a long time ago and may not produce the results your expecting.
In the early 80’s, don’t quote me, Jeff Nightbyrd found out it can cause an error in lab testing equipment. This will help you void test results. Since then there has not been any evidence other wise.
But is that what you want?
What Happens if You Do This Today
Todays drug testing has advanced greatly and became more sophisticated. Fault systems and protocols have been put in place for these types of events. Today, If a urine same causes an error in read there are 3 possible out comes:
- Another test is needed
- False positive is triggered
- No re-test, you pass
Out come #3 is the only positive out come here. One and two are considered false positive for tampering, so a fail. With most major lab testing facilities, this is considered tampering.
Before giving your urine, you can cover up for the high amounts of aspirin by claiming to use it for pain. This might delay the UA and give you a little more time to clean your system.
If your unwilling to chance a false positive, you have two options:
- Use a detox
- Natural cleansing
What you do to detox your system depends on how much time you have to prepare. On short notice, you wont have a chance to naturally flush out THC. In this case a detox is your best bet.
- Check out this post that should help you figure out the best THC detox for your situation
- For the natural route, read how THC is stored in the body as well as how its absorbed into your system
Those two articles should provide enough information for you to make the right decision. Naturally, you will have to burn through any fat cells that contain the metabolite for Marijuana. While a detox will help temporarily flush out or mask THC.
So does Aspirin work for passing a drug test?, no not really. Please see the links in the previous paragraph for better options. Of course there still is the possibility that the testing lab will over look false positives. But with the low cost of testing chances are slim.
It does happen, I have came across a few people that have passed with with method, but not with in the last 10 yrs.
