Took about 6 weeks to hear back. But to go for a second medical (of 3) because i admitted id smoked weed 2 years ago to the doctor. Because he asked about 3 year history.
If u didnt then ur probably fine, just dont drink excessively

Just curious but what have you heard the benefits are for drinking cranberry juice before the medical?

Its supposed to be good at cleansing, but honestly thats more for like infections etc. When it comes to drugs it may help a little bit but just plain old water regularly days before would help and healthy food, lots of sleep and staying fit helps too.
When it comes to heavy alcohol use, they look for things that cant be flushed out so easily. That sticks around for a little while regardless.

I have no issues myself and not drank since June (medical 4th August). I was purely just curious as I'd not heard of having it before a blood test - only for flushing out infections haha

Hi.
Have you heard back off your 2nd medical yet? Was it the urine test? I’ve had one for being on pai killers a few years back (which was prescribed anyway so if I was still on them I would be okay to drive aslong as I wasn’t abusing them) and just wondering what the ETA is these days as last year they were loosing samples etc
Thanks

Well I can say medical was on 18th of July and just received my license back yesterday
My advice is this if your going to have the cheeky drink have 2 - 3 pints max and then don’t drink for another five days
Cranberry / milk thistle seemed to help as prior before I had a ☁️ but laid off it got scared at first when the it arrived as it the new style I thought it was different due to offence but all I can say is just stay sober and stay positive p.s if any of you.
