can you drink the night before a drug test

I don’t think I would worry about it too much. I doubt anything will show up. I think they are looking for excessive amounts of alcohol.

– Also, I am assuming you probably have healthy liver and kidney function; these would be other contributing factors that could keep the metabolites in your system longer (unless you are already aware of a condition, this is not something you should worry about. kidney or liver failure aren’t things people “stumble upon” through failing a drug test).
– In general, you’re right, the alcohol content in 3 beers does not amount to much. However, as you also probably know, your body mass does make a difference. If you are a very small person, you will metabolize alcohol much more slowly than a larger individual (meaning, the metabolites, or evidence that you have injested alcohol, will take longer to reach your kidneys and will show up in your urine later if you are a smaller person). Although, even a 100-lb woman should be able to metabolize the alcohol content in 3 beers over about 6-8 hours. If you are male, you’ll almost always metabolize alcohol faster than a female, and if you are over 200lbs, you can usually metabolize 3 beers in under 3 hours. These are estimations, though–it differs from person to person depending on muscle mass, hydration, and other factors, but those are some baseline numbers to go by.

Had you drank them the morning before the test, I’d be a little concerned.
Last night I drank a three beers (not much) before sleeping and then this morning I got called into work for a drug test, I drank approximately 2 Liters of water between the beers and the drug test.
Hey, if you pass the test and get hired-have a drink on me!
I am a registered nurse, and I’ve had to do some urine tox screens on patients before, so I could give you my opinion. Although, of course, I am not going to claim to know for sure whether or not you will “pass”, I can tell you the factors that will make a difference.
I don’t think you should have worried at all. Two alcoholic beverages per day should be fine for the normal or moderate drinker. Three might give you a little bit of a buzz, but we metabolize so much alcohol per hour.

Yes they screen for alcohol.
