    Nicotine / Cotinine: The Test

    An employer can test for nicotine. You can also ask your employer what they are testing for. They can test for a range of drugs, or specific ones.

    If it is a hair drug test it most likely will not include nicotine. Ours doesn't. It looks like they are going to test for the NIDA 5 (main drugs of abuse) plus the extended opiates (pain killers).

    Here is the list of drugs tested for along with cutoff levels.:
    Cocaine/Metabolite 500pg/mg
    Marijuana Metabolite 0.10pg/mg
    Amphetamines 500pg/mg
    Methamphetamines 500pg/mg
    Opiates (Cod, Mor, Her) 200pg/mg
    Phencyclidine 300pg/mg
    Ecstacy (MDMA) 500/mg

    Cutoff levels for the Extended Opiates are 200pg/mg include: Vicodin (Hydrocodone), Lorcet/Lortab (Hydrocodone), Oxycotin (Oxycodone), Percocet/Percodan (Oxycodone), Dilaudid (Hydromorphone)
