The drug Cialis can sometimes be restricted in terms of drug tests for various things such as jobs. Here’s a guide as to what the drug is and the truth about how it relates to drug testing.
What is Cialis?
Cialis is a prescription drug also known as Tadalafil. The purpose of it is to treat erectile dysfunction, or having trouble getting an erection, in men. The drug can also help treat other problems like having an enlarged prostate, or having high blood pressure in your lungs. This means that the drug can actually be used by women as well, so it’s not just men who may have it in their systems. This is why it’s important for both men and women to pay attention to how it might affect drug tests.
One thing that’s at least worth noting is that the drug has to have a prescription in order for you to be legally allowed to have it. Therefore, if you end up in a situation in which you have to prove that you have a prescription for a drug that you showed positive for on a drug test, you may be in a considerable amount of trouble if you can’t prove that you actually have that prescription. This is one of the first things you should worry about.
Time in Your System
Another thing to pay attention to is how long the drug is in your system. If you know for sure that Cialis is something that will be tested for, then you should pay attention to this. However, generally drugs like this don’t last in your system longer than a few days at the very most. AS a result, if you just stop use for a few days, it should clear up in your system fairly quickly and then you won’t have to worry about anything like this ever showing up in your body during a test. You will pass it out through your urine fairly quickly because this is how your body tends to operate in general.
Tests for Cialis
In general, most workplaces don’t really test for something like Cialis because it’s so specialized, and because it focuses on something that is a legitimate health concern, specifically hypertension. It helps to actually read the guide for your test to see what drugs they are testing for. Another thing to pay attention to is the fact that Cialis is actually not illegal as long as you have a prescription.
Many other drugs are illegal, and this is half the reason why you have to get tested for them in the first place. But since Cialis isn’t in most countries under the right context, you may not have anything to really worry about. It pays to look at exactly what the test is. Employment tests won’t tend to emphasize something like Cialis since it has no bearing on employment, especially because Cialis isn’t illegal and because it isn’t the type of drug you really use purely recreationally by itself.
