Re: New job... drug test required and how to explain TomV

Tom -

When our company tests for drugs and the results show up anything related to anti-anxiety, the employer never knows about this. It's the pot, coke stuff that makes you not get the job and even then the employer doesn't know WHY you didn't pass the test, just that you didn't pass.

And as far as Xanax - just say it's for sleep problems. A very commonly taken drug.

Good luck at your new job! :-)

> I'm on the verge of possibly moving on to a new job. The job requires drug testing. I haven't told anyone in the interview process or on any application about my depression nor any meds that I'm taking (Celexa and xanax). I prefer not to say anything, but I'm afraid someone I report to will find out (don't know how likely this is, but I guess it's a possibility). I really don't want my superiors to have any preconceived notions about me before I even start the job.
> Should I say I'm taking the drugs for something like a "sleep disorder", or something that steers them away from the real reason? Or should I come clean? I don't think there's a chance of me not being able to perform my job and my employer accusing me of not telling the truth in the application process.
