    Station" high. WHen they did a blood test, they found 0.0
    alcohol. Apparently, the mouth flush has a high alcohol
    content and messed up the readings \o/

    Interesting. Would regular alcohol-based mouthwashes trip
    breathalyzers too?

    No idea. As somebody else has suggested, I'd suspect they would not trigger a brethalyzer unless you had had the flush right before being tested.

    It would blow the number off the scale since it is not diluted. They'd
    either detain you until the remaining surface alcohol cooks off, or resort
    to another method, such as blood draw. if detaining is done, they may have
    you rinse your mouth with water (do not ingest) to prove it is not internally present.

    yes they can trip them... same as some cough syrups (dayquil for one)

    The alcohol would have to be present to be detected. if you just flushed,
    you would blow a highly ridiculous reading. Enough for a seasoned medical reviw officer to know what would trigger such high results.

    On a related note, I recall a product used to be sold as a means to confuse a urine test for THC. i wonder if there was a test to detect if tampering with another chemical existed? Intentionally botched results could be translated as admitting guilt.

    DayQuil isn't a syrup, it's a non-drowsy combination mostly sold in caplet form. Nyquil is the night-time liquid, and it has actual *alcohol* in it.

    There are some knock-out cough syrups - when I was in the dorms at college,
    If you said you had a hacking cough that was keeping your roommate up, the health center would prescribe a concoction that was alcohol, codeine and robitussin. The latter two ingredients specifically contraindicate the
    first, and there was a picture of a backhoe in a circle with a big red slash through it.

    Good stuff, indeed.

    We have dayquil in a liquid form. it's the only way i can take it cus i hate pills, but to the point. dayquil has propylene glycol (C3H8O2). at least the liquid form which i've just read the label of :D but that said even though it's a "double-alcohol - diol) it's not going to be picked up in a breathe test. so yes... dayquil is fine...

    nyquil however, as you correctly stated, does have alcohol in it (unless you have the liquicaps) according to the nyquil website.

    https://vicks.com/en-us/safety-and-faqs/faqs/vicks-nyquil-faq

    I knew it was one of them but i couldnt remember which one.

    That said, there's a number of medications that do contain it and a lot of those, i have to stay away from.. for example, sudafed, robitussin etc. mainly cus of my jkob, but also cus i fly.

    HAHAHAHA, yea if you wanna get hammered take a few slugs of "terpin Hydrate with DM", that's 40 percent according to the link from sdsu lmao. me personally, if i am gunna get busted for dui (which i hope i never get to that point as i do not drink and drive cus you can spill it). i want it to be at least a decent 18 year old scotch :D

    Good stuff, indeed.

    sounds like it for sure
