It's only natural to want to save money. After all, a pack of aspirin costs just a few bucks, and some creatine supplements won't set you back much either. But what's the point in saving money if it doesn't work? Is it worth putting your health at risk?
Why is combining aspirin, creatine, and THC tests a bad idea?
Aspirin is an over-the-counter pain killer, so why would it be dangerous? Like most non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID), aspirin doesn't play nice with your gastrointestinal system.
Sure, most people take aspirin as directed without noticing any side effects. It can even prevent heart attacks and strokes in some people when taken daily, but many also feel side effects like nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, even at low doses.
Now, if it can do that to people in normal doses, what happens if you overdose on it in preparation for a drug test? The biggest risk is intestinal bleeding, which can lead to coma and even death.
You should therefore never take a high dose of aspirin, no matter how much you want to pass a THC test. Just get a detox drink instead.
But does it work?
The rumor is that the aspirin somehow interferes with the immunoassay panel of THC testing devices, preventing them from showing a positive result. There's no evidence that it does this, though, so it's likely just another old wives tale.
When people claim they've passed, it's probably because they've combined it with dilution and just been lucky. So, not only is it dangerous, it probably won't help either.
So, what should you do?
The safest way to take a drug test is to prepare yourself by abstaining for a while. You probably know that THC can be hard to get out of your body, but if you've been an occasional user, a weeklong detox program may do the trick for you.
It will obviously take much longer for a heavy weed user, but you can get detox kits that combined a course of long-term supplements with a detox drink to use before a drug test. Even if you still have traces of THC metabolites in your urine, the detox drink will diminish their presence and help you pass.
If you clearly don't have enough time to even attempt a full detox, you may as well go straight for a detox drink. This will accelerate your body's natural cleansing mechanism and reduce the concentration of THC metabolites in your urine.
It's not just a matter of chugging the drink, however. You need to carefully follow the directions and make sure you use it at the right time. It takes a little while to take effect, usually an hour or so, and the effect wears off after a few hours, so you really need to get your timing right. It's also essential to pee a couple of times before going to your test.
