Risperidone will not show up in a urine test, although there are many other drugs that will.

• Drug use revealed by urine test
There are a number of different drugs that can be revealed by a urine drug test, and these include opium, heroin, marijuana, ecstasy, alcohol, PCP amphetamine, oxycodone (oxycontin), morphine, codeine (and other opiates) and benzodiazepines (Valium and Xanax).

• Cheating a urine test
There are some people that believe that it is possible to cheat a urine tox test, either by drinking huge amounts of water prior to the test, or by taking a commercially produced product, often touted on the Internet. The harsh reality is that it is not likely that this can be done.

• Commercial products
These need to be taken with lots of water, which can throw up a new set of problems for the person trying to cheat a urine drug test.

• Drinking excess water
The thinking behind this idea is that the extra water will dilute the drug residues to the point where they cannot be detected. For a start, drinking copious amounts of water can actually be life threatening because the kidneys cannot cope. Secondly, excess water intake will make the urine very pale, which is an immediate giveaway that the person being tested has tried to influence the test and so a more detailed analysis of the sample will be undertaken.

• Swapping the sample
This is another talked about ploy, but another that is likely to be doomed to failure. The chemistry of urine changes if not fresh and so will immediately be detected. If it is stored in a fridge to maintain its freshness, the temperature will be wrong, and so the person taking the test will be found out.
