The Test Medica Drugs of Abuse test in only the first step in a two-step process for determining the presence of drugs of abuse. If you get a "preliminary positive" test result when you use this products, we recommend that you send the urine to a certified laboratory, which can test the urine again with a more accurate and reliable test. The second test is called confirmation testing, which is most often done using a test called gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry. We recommend that you consult with your doctor or another qualified professional to help you understand test results and to address problems such as drug use.
