What is Barbiturates, Urine?
Barbiturates are a type of depressant used for treating seizures, insomnia, or headaches. Also, sometimes as sedatives for surgeries. But there is a potential risk of addiction, which further adds the risk of overdose. A Barbiturates Urine test identifies and confirms the presence of barbiturates in a person’s body. This test is beneficial in cases of drug abuse and drug overdose (accidental or suicidal).
The test requires your random urine sample (minimum 7 ml). Be careful during sample collection to avoid contamination. If you do not submit the minimum sample quantity, it may get rejected. Usually, it takes 3-5 days for the reports. If the values reported are above 300 ng/mL, it is considered positive. It indicates usage of this drug in the past three days.
