Legen krever peth.
I will start by saying I haven’t commited any crime, didn’t drive drunk or loose my license, I had alcohol problem and there were lot of reasons to it, ranging from depression to love life. I have heavily abused alochol for 8-9 months and lost my job.
Around the same time I was diagnosed with ADHD and was required to show clean tests for 3 months – which I did.
After this, I was asked to test for another 3 months and stay within «moderat forbruk» – which I did.
After this my fastlege stated she’s uncomfortable with prescribing my ADHD medication unless I continue testing.
I was very disappointed but I understood why so I went with it. This was now 1 year ago and I don’t feel comfortable with testing anymore. I should add during this year I have stayed within «low moderate».
Its been a total of 1,5 year and I find this very invasive. Another problems in facing is.
The half life of peth in heavy drinkers is about 4 days, while the half life of peth among moderate drinkers ranges from 8-12(14)days. This makes it impossible for me to estimate how much I can drink, so I stopped.
This is extremely invasive and is heavily affecting my social life and ny new social circle.
I can’t go out and have a beer without worrying on how it will affect the test. Please advice, I feel stuck and this affects my mental health.
