Does Taking Antibiotics Affect Urine Tests?
, In the last 4 days I took 500 mg of novaflox for my dental treatment and then next Saturday I will take a urine test. Can novaflox affect urine test results? How long has novaflox been in the body and how is it removed from the body? Thanks.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The drug you mentioned is one of the drugs that fall into the class of antibiotics and contains generic ciprofloxacin. This drug is usually given to treat various types of bacterial infections such as infections of the urinary tract, in the digestive tract, of the eyes, and also of the teeth. Like other antibiotic drugs, this drug is a prescription drug, should not be bought and used without a doctor's prescription, and must be consumed regularly until it runs out.
Regarding your question, in general this drug is not detected in the urine and there is really no way you can do to clean it from the body, apart from maybe dialysis procedures - which you cannot do for this reason. But even more important is the urine test, which is done in a company, agency or school admissions usually done to determine if a person has a history of:
Alcohol consumption Use of narcotics and illegal drugs Consumption of sedatives
So you don't have to worry because taking antibiotics in a condition where you want to cure the infection is not prohibited, and it shouldn't affect the results of your urine test. So, hopefully it answers your question.
