185. I don't think there's anything foolproof out there.
My wife works for an agency that handles foster care and adoptions, and a lot of their clients are required to pass urine tests. I think the problem is, that some forms of deception also raise flags to check for deception.

A few guys I used to work with swore by Niacin, and they seemed to pass.

I know how you feel about the legal stuff. I've got a herniated disk, stenosis and arthritis, and a prescription for oxycodone, and I hate the shit. I only take it when the pain is so bad, I can't walk.

I Thought about surgery, but I read a recent study that showed in over half the patients it actually made the pain worse. My orthopedic surgeon put me on the steroid Prednisone for 7 days, and it appears to have really made a difference. Most of the pain is gone, but I can't say without a doubt that that was the cause. And I got a decent inversion table from for a reasonable price.

I hope everything works out for you. Nothing worse than losing a job, over an illness.
