Humira DoT Drug test - False Positive

LOL, I applied for a Information technology job that uses the extreme drug test (Dept of Trans.) for drug/alcohol testing. So naturally being OCD I told them what drugs I've been on and currently take. They told me to bring proof of Humira cause that will show up and ding me. Its ok for DOT and FAA for people to fly planes and drive trucks/Buses ect. Just regulated more.

Did anyone know this?:eek::eek::confused2:

Humira (adalimumab) is an injectable medication that can slow the progression of rheumatoid arthrits in adults. It is a recombinant antibody to human tissue necrosis factor - alpha that can be used in combination with other anti-rheumatoid medications. Pilots on this medication must use it for at least 30 days before applying for FAA authorization to use the Humira for rheumatoid arthritis when flying.

Maybe since it can make some overly tired after injections .
My DS is wiped out for about 16 hours after the injection.
So I give it at night and he sleeps through most of the fatigue.
Otherwise I have no idea
Good to know it shows up ...
Yeah I was dumbfounded when I heard this. Its not a scheduled drug. But the fatigue factor is what I can only guess. Even if someone wanted to abuse this drug...there really is no point. lol

Another Government agency meddling into something so dumb.
I don't know what to do, this is the only forum where people discuss about drug test and Humira. I applied for a job in transport company, and they ask me to do the same test. I take this medication for slowing the progression of rheumatoid arthrits. I need to get this job. How did you pass the drug test? I'm looking for a sythetic urine What do you think, will it help?
