Hi--just to be clear here are you saying it's been about 9 days since you last used? And specifically what test did you use?

last thursday morning

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
OK. Usually the maximum time for heroin to be detected in the urine is five to seven days so you're on the outer edge of that period. With another four days to go before the test you should test negative at that point. Just so you'll know--there are no methods--lots of fluids or detox kits or whatever--that effectively speed up the metabolite elimination process
