Effects of Drugs & Medications on Polygraph (Lie Detector) Results, Global Polygraph Network


Hello, my name is Michael Martin owner of
the Global Polygraph Network. Welcome to our video about polygraph and
medications. The first thing to understand is that
polygraph works by measuring the differences between different kinds of
questions on the exam. There is no drug in existence that only
affects some questions on the exam and not the others. In other words any drug that is taken
will affect all the questions equally. What that means is that drugs
and medications will not help a person pass or fail the polygraph, but they may reduce the quantity and
quality of the information that is collected during the procedure. Whenever we make decisions based on less
information on any subject we are more likely to make a mistake. The same holds true for polygraph. Any
medication that strongly affects the central nervous system will increase the
chances of the polygraph being wrong, but they won’t make someone pass or fail the
test. Most medications will not affect the
test in any significant way. Call us today for more information about this, or to
schedule an appointment.
