Herbal Clean's QTabs and Super QCaps are a great way to make sure you can give a clean sample for a drug test, but timing is critical. Here's the deal on how long QTabs last, how they work, and what you can do to make them last longer.
How Do QTabs Work?
To appreciate how long QTabs last, it helps to understand how they work. QTabs contain a variety of natural ingredients that are known to improve liver and kidney function, but their primary purpose is to give your urinary system a quick flush. By flushing drug residues from your bladder and kidneys, QTabs enable you to safely take a urine drug test.
Using QTabs is simply a matter of taking the tabs in three rounds with a certain amount of water. For people weighing less than 180 pounds, this means drinking a 12-ounce glass of water with every round. Heavier users, however, need to up this to 20 ounces of water. It's very important to stick to the prescribed amount of water, no more and no less, because the effects of QTabs are balanced around a certain fluid intake.
The other important aspect is peeing, because urination is the body's main mechanism for flushing toxins away. QTabs contain natural diuretics that will encourage you to visit the washroom, so you shouldn't have trouble peeing a couple of times before your test. If for some reason you can't, try to relax and let it come naturally. Under no circumstances should you ever skip this and go to your test anyway.
So, How Long Do QTabs Work?
The effects of QTabs are temporary unfortunately, so you need to time their use to fit in with your drug test. QTabs become effective in as little as an hour, but the best time to use them is two hours before your test. This means the level of toxins in your urine will be at its lowest when you submit your sample. After this point, toxins will start to accumulate in your urine again. After four hours, toxin levels may be back over the detectable threshold.
Everyone's body is different of course, and lower levels of drug use will probably mean a longer "safe window," but there's no way to know this in advance. Anyway, do you really want to take the chance of failing when you don't have to? See below for what to do if your safe window expires.
So, here's a summary of when to take your QTabs:
Minimum time: 1 hour before
Optimal time: 2 hours before
Maximum time: 4 hours before
What Can I Do If My Test Is Delayed?
Despite your best efforts, you can't always control when you'll be tested. If you take a test outside the four-hour window, you run the risk of failing. Fortunately, taking some Vales +2 will extend the effectiveness of your QTabs' (or any other detox drink/pill) for another two hours. These handy capsules are much cheaper than buying a second pack of QTabs, and you can repeat the process as many times as you need (within reason).
