Elimination of Cocaine

There is no exact time period for the excretion of cocaine from the body. This is because, its excretion depends upon many factors.

Factors Affecting Excretion of Cocaine

Type and Amount of Cocaine Taken

Cocaine comes in many forms. Also, it may be inhaled, injected or taken orally. The blood concentrations of cocaine vary according to the mode of administration. It is more when inhaled or injected, as the drug enters the blood stream immediately.

The preparation or type of cocaine should also be considered. In US, most of the cocaine available is about 60% pure.

Was Alcohol Consumed Along With the Drug?

The excretion of the drug is much reduced, especially in the initial phase, if alcohol was taken along. Alcohol kind of binds the drug and retains it in the body, impeding its excretion through urine.

Health Status of the Individual

The metabolism and elimination of drug from the body involves chiefly the liver and the kidney. Cocaine is metabolized in the liver into various metabolites, mainly benzoylecgonine. These are then washed off predominantly via urine and partly through feces.

So, the health status of the liver and kidneys become important. If you have a healthy liver, it will be more efficient in removing the drug from the body.

How Skinny You Are?

Thinner individual are lucky here. Cocaine metabolites have a tendency to stick to the fatty tissues of the body. This stored drug is resistant to excretion. It is slowly released into the blood stream to continuously to produce a certain level of drug in the blood.

Activity Status

The elimination of the drug is quicker if an individual is physically active. Better the metabolic rate (BMR), quicker the excretion of drug.

Steps That May Help in Excretion of Cocaine

If you want to cleanse your body quickly, there are steps which may aid you a great deal to excrete this drug from the body.

Eliminating every speck of drug from the body may take time. It may take months or even a year. However, this is not usually required. Bringing the drug level below a threshold value may be achieved.

This value is 100- 150 ng/ml for most of the ordinary urine drug testing kits.

You can do the following to speed up cocaine elimination from the body-

  • Water is the best cleanser. Drink plenty of water.  This increases the renal efficiency and helps in flushing out toxins from the body.
  • Eat seasonal fruits and fresh vegetables as much as possible. They are detoxifiers. They prevent cocaine from sticking to the body tissues and aid in its excretion. Try including a serving of them in each of your meals.
  • Avoid beverages containing caffeine. Caffeine would impede the elimination of cocaine. So, it is better not to take tea, coffee or soft drinks having caffeine as beverages. Instead, you may go for fruit juices, soups or lemonades.
  • Abstain from alcohol completely. Alcohol holds back cocaine in the body and may retard its excretion to a great extent. There are many beverages available in the market that are alcohol based. So, you need to be careful.
  • Stay physically active and exercise on a regular basis. The type of exercise is not so important. You may go for a walk or go to your gym. Swimming is another way to keep your body active.

Medical Advice (Q&As) on “Excretion of Cocaine From the Body

  1. Steve Horowitz

    Hello, I did about 0.8g of cocaine yesterday while having drank 3-4 alcoholic beverages. I am 5’6?, 155lbs. Four days prior I did about 0.2g. For the past six months I’ve done about 0.5g/weekend, infrequently during the week. Method of consumption has always been through snorting/inhaling. I have a urine drug test in 11 days. I plan on running two miles per day and drinking a halt gallon of water each day until that point. Is it likely that the metabolite benzoylecgonine will still be present in my urine at that point?

      It is quite likely that you will pass the test. However, nothing can be said for sure. There are many variables regarding excretion of this metabolite, like, individual’s metabolic rate and his excretory capacity.

      Since you have been taking the drug on and off since last six months, there are chances of its accumulation and deposition in the liver. This stored drug is difficult to excrete.

      Completely avoid alcohol during this period. Drink lots of water and stay active.

    Hello, I’m going to be heading up to MEPS soon to join the military and I wanted some info on my past drug use, which was an enormous mistake because it’s causing me a lot of stress.

    On June 7th and June 8th I did cocaine with some friends that are really into it. I’m not sure of the exact amount by any means, but for worst case scenario I’ll just say I did a gram total in those nights combined. On the 7th I drank a little while I did it, but on the 8th I drank a considerable amount while doing it (mostly beer). As far as prior use, it had been a long time since I experimented with it and I am by no means a regular user.

    I want to know if I’ll be able to pass the MEPS drug screening during the second week of July (8-12)? I know their drug screens are very accurate. I also know that they test for the metabolite that the use of cocaine creates when it’s used. I am 5’10? and 150 lbs. I do intense ab ripper x abdominal workouts 5 days a week, and I do push up workouts at least 3-4 times a week. I’ve also been running a mile a day, 5 days a week, but it will increase weekly to the point where I am running 2-3 miles a day, 5 days a week in a couple weeks. I drink lots of water, I’d say 4-6 16 oz bottles a day, and that’s all I drink. I also take 5g of creatine monohydrate every day, along with one bee pollen pill. I often have a lot of caffeine intake as well.

    In approximately 20-30 days time from June 8th will I be able to pass the very accurate MEPS drug screen for the cocaine metabolite following these steps each day? Also, is there anything more I could do other than what I’ve described to make absolutely certain that there will be no traces of the metabolite in my urine or blood screens? Your reply and advice is greatly appreciated. I am hoping to turn my life around and never touch a single substance again. Thank you.
    Oh, I also smoke about 5-8 cigarettes a day, but am planning to cut them out completely.

      It is quite likely that you will pass the urine test, which is the commonest among the screening tests these days. However, there are more accurate tests like blood test and hair strand test.

      Hair test give positive results for every drug taken during the period when the hair was growing. Blood tests may be positive for as long as 30 to 35 days.

      However, urine test is the commonest of all screening test.

      Tips to help you pass the test:

    2. Absolute abstinence from alcohol and smoking.
    3. Cut down on all caffeineted drinks like tea, coffee and even coke. All these drinks tend to retain the metabolite in the body.
    4. Drink lots of plain water and stay physically active.
    5. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetable servings in your meals. This would keep your liver healthy and help in early detoxification of your body.
    6. Sleep well.

          Nitric oxide is a strong cardiac drug. It acts by relaxing the walls of the blood vessels, there by widening them. It reduces the blood pressure and the load on the heart.

          It is not desirable to take this drug. It will reduce your blood pressure and adversely affect your well being.

    1. Buddy M.D. Post author

      Urine testing to screen the drug may measure either the amount of cocaine or its metabolite benzoylegconine in urine.

      While cocaine takes around a week to get excreted, its metabolite may take at least 10 to 12 days to get out of the system.

      So, your result would depend upon the type of drug test being performed.

      For quicker elimination of the drug, detoxify your body. Drink lots of water, avoid alcohol and caffeine. Consume plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. Read more on elimination of benzoylegconine and cocaine.

    Hi, I’ve been clean for a while. Like years, but recently started using again. Not more than even .7 of a gram at a time. So for the past three weeks I used on Saturday at the latest and was tested on Wednesday, and have been clean for my MMT urine tests. I used .4 today and basically have 48 hours till my next test. I use via IV as I’ve read on your other articles it matters how it was ingested? I’ve already downed a bunch of water, and I basically DESPISE myself at this point for letting my friend from the Penitentiary manipulate me, when I know I’m the idiot who made the decision to use and no one else. Sorry for the pity party there. I’m going to get some Cranberry juice tomorrow and have already told my buddy to screw off and lose my number. I’m just hoping you have a word of advice or even just encouragement that it can easily be out of your system in 48 hours providing I listen to your advice above. I’m 35, 6’2″ tall(183 cm I think) and 205 pounds. Because of the methadone I sweat a lot naturally, so if I go for a brisk 5-7 km walk tomorrow that can’t hurt right? Thank you in advance.

      If it is cocaine they are testing, there are fair chances you would pass the test. However, if they are testing benzoylecgonine (metabolite of cocaine), it is difficult to be sure. 48 hours is a very small window.

      Anyhow, you may drink plenty of water and fruit juices. Go for a walk. All this will definitely help in the excretion of the drug.

      Refrain from drinking alcohol, tea or coffee.

    If your body breaks down a drug to form a metabolite, usually that metabolite hangs around in your body. I’m referring to cocaine metabolized into benzoylecgonine. Since most drugs are initially toxic, what about after it is metabolized? Is benzoylecgonine considered a toxin? And will it be deposited as such?

    Reply
    1. Buddy M.D. Post author

      In general, as the drug is metabolized in the body, it is changed into smaller, less toxic components.

      Benzoylecgonine is less toxic than cocaine. This chemical is present in blood for a longer duration than cocaine.

      Gradually, this is also broken down into smaller components and gradually excreted as such and as its broken components via urine and feces.

      It takes around 5 to 7 days for the drug to get eliminated from the body. However, this time window is only for one time users.

They did say if they can’t get hair from me they will do a urine test as the next option. I have told them that I shave body hairs as a preference from my wife. Do you suggest I shave all, legs arms like full body wax and make sure no hair can be taken from me and that they do urine as that is the option if no hair can be taken clearly stated by them?

      It would be safer if they are not able to carry out your hair test and do urine test instead.

      Hair test is risky, and may show up the drug taken.

      You may discuss the areas from which they may possibly take hair and consider shaving those areas.

      If this was a one time use of the drug, he is likely to pass the urine test. Ten days are adequate for cleaning.

      He needs to take some precautions. Ask him to abstain completely from alcohol. Limit his intake of tea and coffee.

      Drink plenty of water and fresh fruit juices. Stay physically active throughout the day.

      All these steps help in detoxifying the body and help in early cleaning.

    I have recently taken an oral swab drug test which was positive for cocaine. I have never used cocaine ever. The lab did a confirmation test which showed cocaine 10.5ng/ml and benzoylecgonine 4.6ng/ml. I requested another test be done, the same sample was tested again and came back with cocaine 9.7ng/ml and negative for benzoylecgonine. What does this mean, why is the metabolite now negative.

      This is difficult to explain. If the swab gives a positive test for cocaine, it should be showing the metabolite too.

      How are you getting positive tests for cocaine? Did you share any utensil (cup, spoon etc.) with some who is taking cocaine? Did you smoke it unknowingly?

        I honestly don’t know. I do smoke marijuana, however, had been clean from that for 27 days prior to the oral swab test. The only thing I did different was drink a red bull the morning of the test, I’m working at a summer camp and thought it might help me keep up with the kids. I am 42 old woman with a quiet life style, married raising a 10 year old boy.
        These results have caused the job offer to be rescinded. Do I have any grounds to fight?

    Hi Doc, I’m a mechanic, so I’m active during the week.
    5’6, 140 lbs, skinny, fast metabolism
    I’m a chronic crack smoker. $20 a day.
    I never drink alcohol. Urine test is on Tuesday. 5 days from now.
    If I stop smoking cigarettes, drink excessive amounts of water, only eat what you recommend, have plenty of sex over the weekend and on the day of the test take one of those detox drinks; do you think I will be able to get the metabolite level down enough to pass the test? I plan on diluting as much as I can before it. I’m just looking for encouragement or an honest professional opinion so I’ll know where I stand. Any further tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. I will also post back on the results. If everyone would do that, many would already find answers to the questions.

      Your being a chronic smoker has made things a bit difficult. In chronic drug users, the drug gets stored in the fatty tissues of the body, like the liver and adipose tissue.

      This stored drug is slowly released into the blood stream on a constant basis. So, even if you don’t take the drug now, your body may show its presence.

      Still, taking all precautions, as mentioned above, may help you bring down the drug level to a value low enough to pass the test. It is worth giving in all efforts.

      You may include fruit juices/ vegetables in your diet. These are natural detoxifiers and would help in quicker cleaning of the system.

The control line is real dark and the test line is real light, I think that’s still a negative. I’m gonna keep detoxing up till tomorrow night when I take the urine test for parole. I’ll let y’all know what’s up tomorrow. So far so good. I will down one of the detox drinks tomorrow before the test for added assurance. Thanks Doc. I believe your advice is solid.

            Back and I’m still here! Took the urine test and passed. I must say, every time in the past when I get desperate and buy detox drinks to beat the test; never works. I’ve always failed. The raw vegetables and fruit diet as well as no smoking cigarettes is the answer. Now I understand the logic.
            1. Stop putting toxins into your body so that the liver can work only on what’s already in your body. No cigarettes, drugs, fatty foods, soft drinks and alcohol.
            2. Help the liver do its magic by drinking water (no toxins and helps with more frequent urinating) and eating healthy things high in fiber (guess the fiber scratches the toxins loose in the liver).
            I’m not a medical professional, but that’s what I got from this ordeal. This is the way to go guys. Remember I’m a chronic user. Thanks again doc! You saved the day.

      After the intake of cocaine, it would take around a week for the drug to be washed away, enough not to show up in the urine test.

      Blood tests may show it for around 15 days. Hair test may show the drug for 3 months.

      If the drug is being taken every six months, the body is not absolutely free of drug at any point of time. It stays stored in the fatty tissues of the body and is slowly released into the blood stream at a constant basis.

      This drug, flowing in the blood in very low concentrations, does not usually show up in the urine test. However, precise blood tests may show it.

      It would take around 7 to 10 days after the last intake of the drug to get clean enough, so that the drug doesn’t show up in the urine test.

      Have you been taking all precautions? If yes, you do have chances of passing the test, however fat you be.

      Total excretion of the drug from the body may take time. Drug and its metabolites are stored in the fatty cells of the body. This stored drug is released into the blood stream on a constant basis in tiny amounts.

      If your overall system is clean, the small level of drug caused due to this stored drug may not show up in the urine test.

    I am a 23 year old female with many health problems, including RSD aka CRPS, I have had it for over 12 years. But recently I have started having seizures as well, this is something very new to me. I am not a recreational drug user, however I have tested positive for cocaine metabolites in my urine. I am concerned on how this is happened. About a month prior to my first seizure, I moved into a very very old and honestly gross duplex with paper thin walls and well it’s a terrible place but it’s all I can afford right now. I am aware that the previous tenants were chronic cocaine and crack users and cooked their own drugs in the duplex. I also recently became aware that the tenant that occupies the other side of the duplex is a chronic user of many drugs. There are some holes in walls that I am trying to fix but smoke does (not marijuana or cigarette smoke) comes through on occasion. I have never felt the affects of the drugs so I honestly didn’t put it all together until my urine came back with cocaine metabolites. Could the second hand smoke, cooking, and his using be absorbing into my system causing these results? I am very concerned because I don’t know what to do, I am not, nor have I been a user but now I am possibly losing my much needed medications because of the tests. I’ve read that these test are very accurate and I don’t want to be labeled for something that I am not doing. I need advice or help with what I can do to prove my innocence.

      For regular or chronic users, the excretion time is somewhere between 15 to 20 days.

    I smoked a gram of rock, or crack on friday, and had to do a piss test on sunday night. It was a little more than 48 hours after I used. I drank a jar of pickle juice and a half cup of vinegar on saturday and sunday morning, and during the 3 hours prior to giving the sample I flushed hard with tons of water and a full cup of vinegar. I even sat in a hot shower for about a half hour, and peed at least 8 times till I know my urine was mostly just water. I know that my test is diluted, but with all of that water can they detect the coke, or the metabolites?

It was just a one time thing I got real stressed and got around the wrong people and did a little. also I hit a joint 3 times. literally three times,and when I hit it they were very very small hits and that had been my first time to smoke pot in almost 2 years, so with the cleansing product I purchased which is a full 7 day cleanse plus water and cutting all fatty foods,coffee and soda are the odds in my favor? thank you so much for your reply . and if you have any other tips to share please do so. I think I’ve def learned my lesson this time, if i fail I am gone back to jail. :/ not worth it,again thankyou!

    So last Sunday I did like 4 bumps of coke (probably less than half a gram) combined with a large amount of alchohol then yesterday I drank alot at the casino. I am not a chronic user and the last time I did it was a month ago (month ago I had about half a gram). I have to go to meps 10 days after I did the coke. I’m 5’9 150 lbs, I exercise (cardio mostly) atleast 5 days a week and I have a physically strenuous job, I also drink a ton of Apple cider vinager daily. Since I drank alot those two nights is there a possibility I won’t pass the urine test?

    I’ve done maybe about 3.5 -4 g of high quality coke, before that I was a month clean, like I do it every other month in high quantities. This has been for like 6 months now do that make me a heavy user or a chronic user? With 20 days clean and a lot of exercise and water could I pass a urine test for probation ?

    For a first and last time user of .3 frames of cocain mixed with 4 beers and shots of whiskey create cocaethylin and cause a negative on a 150 ng/ml cocain drug test 30 days after use?? I’m guessing that cocaethylin is detected longer..

    Sorry, I meant to write grams… the internet keeps saying that if you drink alcohol while using Coke that it can be detected in the urine 25-30 days.. is this likely .

    Why does the internet say that cocaethylin make urine test positive after such a long period of time?? Even if it was one time use, combining it with alcohol creates that newly tested metabolite.. Im just beyond worried and I keep postponing my test due to the cocaethylin thing..

    Sorry I worry cus I can’t find out any information on the drug test itself. I know it’s a 10- Panel pre-employment drug test. 31590n but it doesn’t say what cutoff limits are. Which is why I’m so afraid of the cocaethylin thing.. all the studies online for cocaethylin detection times are not for public view. ( I’d have to pay a lot of money just to read them.. ) any insite from you will be much appreciated and highly valued. Most sincerely.

    I split a gram with a buddy on Friday, then sent to sleep and finished what I had early Saturday morning around 6am (I’m a third shifter), and may be tested on the following Monday. I pour steel and sweat a lot, and normally drink around a gallon or more of water at work and sweat almost all night.

    Hi, I actually have 2 questions. I will stick to the topic of cocaine use first. I smoked friday into saturday at 4am. I probably did like $60 worth and a half pint of vodka throughout friday. That was the first time I used since May. I should be taking a drug test on wednesday maybe thursday. Im 200lbs and 5’3. If i follow all your recommendations as far as water/excercise should I pass (and if I drink alot of water before test)? Im looking at an old test amd under cocaine it says drug tox cocaine, w/conf oral….dors this mean they test for that metabolite or not? And I may have the option to do a mouth swab. Would a mouth swab be better to take or a urine test? I am a little afraid of a swab test, which leads to the next question.
    I took a test july 27th for my program. They usually do a urine test. This time they did a mouth swab. Well the swab test came up positive. I used heroin for aboit a month in may. I od’ed 2x in 24 hours I suppose because they must have laced with fentanyl. But to the point, after testing for 2 months (urine) i was always clean. They did a swab and I came up positive for fentanyl (.49), morphine (9.3), heroin metabolite (2.1). How is this possible if I havent used since May 19th and all my other urine screens are clean? Right before I took the test I ate an everything bagel that had some poppy seeds and I take suboxone and I was on some antibiotics. Could this have been a factor? Drug testing is sent into quest diagnostics if that helps. I understand this was alot in a post. So whatever you could answer would help. Oh and what are the best veggies to detox, and is it better to eat fresh or make a soup…thanks.

      You are likely to pass with all precautions taken. Urine testing is the most common one. Mouth swab test requires you to have an very good oral cleaning, with flossing.

          All would depend upon how frequently you’ve been taking the drug. Each time you take a drug, a part of it may deposit in your liver and fat cells. This storage stock keeps increasing with each use of the drug.

          The stored drug is slowly released into the blood stream. So, when you get tested, this stored drug may show up.

          It may take a month or more for this stored drug to finish. All depends upon its amount.

      Since you have been taking the drug weekly, it’s expected to be stored in your body tissues. This stored drug is slowly released in to the blood stream, giving a constant level of the drug in the blood.

      For this reason, result of your urine test is difficult to predict.

      If it’s 12 days after the last usage, you’ve chances to pass the test. However, since alcohol has been used during this period, results cannot be predicted with certainty.

      In 25 to 30 days, the amount gets reduced so much that it doesn’t appear on urine testing. However, some amount is still there. In fact, hair test may catch the drug till 90 days of last usage.

    I have a urine drug test on the 21st of November. I was using approx half a gram of coke with alcohol once or twice a week in October and stopped in the beginning of November. For the last week I have abstained from any alcohol, have been drinking tons of water, and have been taking multivitamins. I took a home drug test today (Nov 13th) and it tested positive for cocaine. I bought an over the counter diuretic named Diurex max which is caffeine free and the active ingredient is Pamabrom. I bought the diuretic as I read elsewhere it will help me urinate more frequently and push out the toxins left behind from my coke use. I have a week before I’m tested, is there anything else I can do to speed up the detox process and hopefully pass? Thanks in advance.

        Would a detox product like Ready Clean help at all? Also I keep reading conflicting things about caffeine. Some say it is a diuretic so it will help and some say to stay clear of caffeine because it can cause the toxins to clear slower.

          Restricting to caffeine would be safer. This chemical holds back the drug in the body. The best diuretic would be drinking plenty of water.

          You may use Ready Clean, if you want. The effects are practically the same as drinking plenty of water and consuming lots of fruits and vegetables.

      Yes, you still have chances to cleanse yourself and the baby by term.

      There are no pills to be given. You have to cleanse yourself in a natural way. Drink plenty of plain water throughout the day. This would continuously flush your system. Include lots of fresh fruits and stewed vegetables in each of your meal. This would encourage your liver to break down and metabolize the drug in your body.

      Abstain from alcohol and limit to caffeine.

    I am a frequent cocaine user. My husband and I are trying to get custody of his daughter. Lawyer wants a negative hair follicle test. My husband has never used, but came up positive on test. What would cause this?? He blames me. I have heard sum dental stuff can cause false positives (he has had recent dental procedures)…..is this true or did he really fail because of my use??
    We have to do another hair test. We have purchased the old style aloe rid shampoo, which was very expensive. We plan to use it along with the macujo method and use braggs apple cider vinegar to drink for detox. Will any of this stuff really work?

      Dental procedures are unlikely to be a cause of positive results.

      Hair follicles get contaminated from the drug from within, that is, via blood supply. So, any externally used shampoo or hair product is unlikely to detox hair.

      Hair get detoxified naturally with time, as you abstain from the drug and take plenty of fruits and vegetables. This may take 2 to 3 months.

      Though it normally takes around 15 to 20 days, on an average, for cleansing in such situations, you do have a chance. Keep doing all those good things you’re doing. Also, stay physically active. This would help you sweat and excrete the drug faster.

      Since you’re not a regular user, you’ve a chance to pass. Just continue with all those aggressive steps you are taking for cleaning your system.

    Hello there!

    I need your suggestions and advices.
    I’m 27 years old 73kg – 173cm
    I have been sober and clean for more than a year.

    I took 0.5 gram of Cocaine from yesterday (Thursday 28.12.2017) evening to today (Friday 29.12.2017) at night!
    I’m going to have a simple urine test on Monday (1.01.2018) afternoon!

    My question is: is it going to be possible that my urine test will be negative? Thanks a lot!! please answer me asap

    This is great and accurate into.

    I drunk a massive amount of alcohol over 2 days. On the second day I ended up doing a about .5 of some very high grade white. I miscalculated how long I had till my po piss test, i thought it was 5 days, it ended up being 100 or so hours. Last time I used prior was maybe 2 months

    For 3 days I drink 2 gallons of water mixed with lemon juice, as well as a bottle a day of 8.99 pure cranberry juice. I ate fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins. I was very active during this period as well.

    I just took a at home test at 74hr first piss of the day and the negative line is very visible. Urine is still diluted a bit as I drink water every time I wake up at night but it’s very encouraging. Science wise I still have 4 half lives of time left (ce has a half life of 6hr) so in theory if I tested negative at 300mg I should be completely clean by day 4

    Thanks for the info and I highly reccomend it.

    I did two key bumps on Thursday night/early Friday morning… like 12-1am. I drank alcohol while doing it. It was just those two bumps, that’s it. I have a urine test on Tuesday at 8am…will I pass, if I’m drinking water and cranberry juice? Honestly will I?

      Was this a one time use of the drug, or do you have it frequently?

      If one time, you may pass. Just be very aggressive about cleansing yourself.

          Repeated intakes of the drug tends to accumulate in inside the body tissues. This collected drug is difficult to remove.

          Try your best. Drink at least 12 to 15 glasses of water.

        Ok so I took the test and I passed…they initially said it was a little too clear and they may have to send it to the lab. If the lab couldn’t test it then worse case scenario I would have to retake it. Fortunately I passed with no problem

    Also add I’ve not used since 1st January. And I know the metabolite coeathelyne is produced when drinking but will 150 hours from last use be long enough

    I did about .7g of cocaine on Saturday night from 9pm and stoped around 4am Sunday morning. Overall it was about a small line every 1.5 hours. I also had alchohol that night. I had to take a suprise urine test about 53 hours later. I drank about 3.5 liters of water a day leading up to the test and ate very clean. Lots of oranges and bananas. Also I ate ricola salad with pickeled onins and cucumbers with my dinner about 13 hours prior. I am about 12% body fat and have a high muscle density. Also i have a pretty fast/active metabolism. Do you think i will pass the test? Thank you!

        Yes it was a one time use. I have only used it two times prior and the last time was in July of 2017. Thank you very much for you insight I really do appreciate it! I am very stressed about the matter. This puts me a bit more at ease.

    Do you know how lab testing for cocaine works, do they still just use dipsticks and wait for 2 lines to show up or is it through a computer?

    I’ve been clean from all drugs for 7 1/2 months now. I’ve done about 4.5 grams of cocaine since last Friday. I did have one small drink tonight but I was drinking water as well. I have a drug test (not sure when) in about 1-3 weeks at most. Will I be able to pass even if they send it to the lab for level testing?

    3 week binge using almost daily with one 4-5 days with no use in between. Drug test coming up within the next 7 days. No prior drug use for about a year. If I aggressively cleanse with water fruit cleansing products vitamins physical activity and going to the sauna everyday until then. Is it likely I will pass and or get it under the limit if it is sent to a lab?

    I forgot I took midol twice and I am on a benzodiazepine but have only taken it 4 times in this period. I drank 2 cups of coffee and was drinking green tea till I read your post. I’m a guy but before I found you I read something that said take midol as a diuretic. I smoke cigarettes and I’m 50. If I make it thru this I’m not ever touch in alcohol again therefore I won’t have to worry about coke. Thanks in advance!!

  131. Worried About Test

    I have a question I haven’t really seen asked. Say you pass your home test for coke which has a cutoff level of 300. Any rough idea how much longer it takes to get to the 150 cut off level the lab might use? I know it can vary with weight, amount used, etc. but a rough estimate, maybe another 1 or 2 days? Also, any idea if most tests are checking for Cocaethylene also now?

    Let me add for people checking the comments out. I screwed up and did a bunch of coke (8 ball) in a 2 day period while drinking heavily. I won a jackpot at casino and celebrated. Haven’t did coke in ages and I rarely ever have a drink. Been taking home tests, on the 5th day I got no line on test. 6th day clean I got a hardly visible line which I would consider a fail. 7th day which is today I got a definite line but very light which is supposed to be a pass. So if anyone has my circumstance (large amount, booze) you’ll probably need 7-10 days to be safe and you’ll still have to do everything that helps. Now a small amount should cut off a few days of course and if you didn’t drink that will decrease your time to be clean also.

    Will also add I bought a cheaper test but it only checks for Benzoylecgonine and doesn’t check for Cocaethylene. That test I passed with flying colors today which is my 7th day clean. I’d have to guess that most places will check for both metabolites. Cocaethylene is the metabolite you’ll have if your drinking booze also at the same time so be careful, if your drinking you’ll need more time. I am 6″2, 260 but I am active. Lost 40 pounds since November. If your much smaller that will help shorten your dirty time also.

    I work out 3x a week plus have been hitting treadmill and elliptical hard for last 4 days drenching my clothes with sweat. First 3 days I was recovering, lol. I’m doing vitamins and slamming water all day also and adding 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar 2x daily to water. Just started liver detox also with pills called Liver Support.

    I still have 2 weeks until I possibly get tested. Tests are random but I’m due for a test at my pain management doctor. I guess I can start relaxing since I finally tested negative today at the 300 cutoff. Even if they test at the 150 cutoff I’d have to think in 2 more weeks I’d pass that. That’s why I asked my original question at the beginning.

    NEVER again will I put myself through this, just isn’t worth it. I’ll never touch it again. I want to get back to being totally clean and not have to worry even if they did a hair test.

      May take roughly 3 to 4 days to reduce it further to 150 cut off level.

      It’s easily to check for Cocaethylene simultaneously. So most tests do check it along.

    I split about a gram of cocaine between myself and two other individuals on a friday night up until around 1-2 am and had been drinking quite a bit of beer that night as well. i drank a lot normal amount of water the following days. i didnt attend a sauna but i took a few baths to where i would sweat for a little while. i ate my normal diet, vegetarian nuggets and mashed potatoes mostly for the following days. i have a drug test the tuesday (tomorrow) following the friday of use. i don’t frequently use however i did use the week before but had over a week to get clean so i know my body had flushed out whatever i consumed cause i was tested in that week as well. Tomorrow morning (tuesday, the day of my test) I plan to drink as much water as i can and eat just fruits leading up to my test, maybe do the sweating thing again as well. i’m 5’6 and weigh about 130 pounds. im vegetarian so most of my diet is vegetable and fruit based. do you think i’ll pass the drug test?
