What Drugs Do Tests Detect?

The typical 5-Panel Test includes these five illicit drugs:

- Amphetamines (meth, speed, crank, ecstasy)
- THC (cannabinoids, marijuana, hash)
- Cocaine (coke, crack) Opiates (heroin, opium, codeine, morphine)
- Phencyclidine (PCP, angel dust)  

However, most private employers are not limited in the number of substances they can test for and may include drugs that individuals legitimately and/or therapeutically take based on a physician’s prescription. Although most private employers can test for any combination of drugs, there are commonly selected “panels.”  

The typical 8-Panel Test includes the above-mentioned substances plus: 

- Barbiturates (phenobarbital, butalbital, secobarbital, downers)
- Benzodiazepines (tranquilizers like Valium, Librium, Xanax)
- Methaqualone (Quaaludes) 
 

The typical 10-Panel Test includes the 8-Panel Test plus: 

- Methadone (often used to treat heroin addiction)
- Propoxyphene (Darvon compounds) 

Testing can also be done for: 

- Hallucinogens (LSD, mushrooms, mescaline, peyote)
- Inhalants (paint, glue, hairspray)
- Anabolic steroids (synthesized, muscle-building hormones)
- Hydrocodone (prescription medication known as Lortab, Vicodin, Oxycodone)
- MDMA ( commonly known as Ecstasy)
