I have to take random hair follicle drug tests for my job. Will poppers show up in the results? Also, can I use poppers if I take blood pressure medicine?

I should not think so. In fact I would say 100% no.
>blood pressure medicine
You shouldn't use poppers with that.

I think it's stunningly unlikely. Very short half life and a drug that almost no one knows or cares about.
But if you want to be sure you would have to get information from the lab about what they are testing for specifically. There are many different ways of performing such tests. I think anyone who is undergoing any test has the right to esquire about such a thing.
Can you ask for a copy of your previous results? Usually the results will show all the things they tested for. You need to know what you are looking for because the terms are not always obvious. For example in a urine drug screen, the result for "cotinine" is actually reflective of nicotine intake/expose, because that's what nicotine breaks down into. So you might have to do some googling to make sure you know what every line item is.
I am sorry you have to undergo such an invasive and unethical procedure just to learn a living. It's wrong.

Sorry there was a second part of that question I missed:
"Also, can I use poppers if I take blood pressure medicine?"
I'm sure lots of people do. Asking the prescriber would be best. Bring her/him some info about how they work, history as treatment for angina etc. Say you are not looking for a yes/no answer (cause I can tell you right now, the answer will be "no" rather to understand what the risks are, which will require use of the brain.

As a paramedic I can share that any nitrate will lower your blood pressure by dilating veins. So you should use with caution.
