The abuse of certain prescription medication continues to rise at an alarming rate. RealLab approaches its relationships with its clients as a collaborative effort to safeguard the physician, the patient and the community by monitoring prescription drug treatment in an effort to identify diversion in the early stages. There is a growing concern from government agencies for the increase in misuse, and treatment plans and monitoring through toxicology screening is often cited as the best method to maintain compliance.
A major aspect of the collaborative approach we take with our clients is providing updated and current information regarding the need for monitoring patients on prescription medications. Staying current on research, opinions, and government regulations is increasingly important as more emphasis is given to the areas of concern, and we provide extensive materials supporting the need for treatment agreements and regular monitoring. We hope that our clients use our services to help them achieve their needs, but regardless of which lab they choose, it is important that we put the information out there so the right course of action can be put into place.
It is well known that the mixing of multiple prescription drugs as well as with illicit drugs can be extremely harmful to a patient. It is important to understand the physiology of their patient, and have assurance that the patient is taking said medication in the prescribed dose. There are numerous accounts of patients either selling medications, or taking multiples from numerous doctors.
In today’s world of growing drug use and prescription drug abuse the physicians need to protect themselves from what has become in all likelihood a very real possibility regarding patients. One simple unknown action on the side of a patient could very well result in a doctor losing his license or facing a courtroom.
Urine Drug Testing provides doctors with the security they need to prescribe the care that their patients require, while also delivering a sense of complete coherence and knowledge of the situation. In a market where information is paramount, it is the physicians’ imperative to ensure the health of his patient while also securing and caring for their growing practice?

Data from 938,586 patient test samples showed that 75% of patients were unlikely to be taking their medications in a manner consistent with their prescribed pain regimen. Thirty-eight percent of patients were found to have no detectable level of their prescribed medication, 29% had a nonprescribed medication present, 27% had a drug level higher than expected, 15% had a drug level lower than expected, and 11% had illicit drugs detected in their urine ... The high observed rate of noncompliance demonstrates a signiﬁcant clinical concern and conﬁrms the importance of periodic urine drug screening for the population prescribed long-term opioid therapy." - Population Health Management 2009;12:185–190
By measuring the mutations of particular alleles we are able to determine patients as ultra-metabolizers, normal metabolizers, intermediate metabolizers, and poor metabolizers. This information itself is enough to reduce the current endemic surrounding adverse drug reactions ($177 billion is currently spent on these maladies). The problem henceforth lies in educating the physician and patient.
