I will be going back to work and will be testing for illegal drug use. I am on Neurontin due to a medical problem. Will I get a FALSE POSITIVE result on a test for illegal drugs?
800mg neurontin 6 times a day? Is this prescribed? Yes it can cause false positives. If it's prescribed just let the lab people, or person know you are taking it. If it's illecit then you have a problem
Steven, I was taking Neurontin for neuropathic pain and I noticed that the higher dosages would cause munchies and other effects like those you get from MJ. At a later point my son was prescribed Neurontin for pain associated to brain surgery and I asked his neurosurgeon (out of Burlington, VT) if he could tell me exactly what the ingredients in the drug were. He went on to check a drug book he has and could not find the ingredients, however he told me that the one thing it said was that a person would TEST POSITIVE for marihuana while taking Neutontin.
my son and i did. I fought like a dog and he did too but it did not matter because he was in jail and treated like a liar for a whole week. He was made to suffer for something he did not do. I went to our lawyer but geuss what, that all takes time. They refused to give him a blood test. You have no control if you are in there. Too bad for you. Thank God it came back negative when it was sent out but that was a week later for the results. The wardens response: Well you have to understand that was not a normal around here, most inmate aren't honest.
I would tell him not to take it then. It's not worth his freedom. I've read and seen wherethis drug will show false positives. I would not risk it if I was him, especially it being my freedom. Best of luck to you two! Let me know how it went.
My son was in jail and tested false positive. They took his commissary and put him in clinic for a week. He kept saying he was innocent. When it was sent out it did come back negative. Today his suboxone clinic doc wants to put him back on it but I am petrified that it will be positive again at probation and he will go straight to jail.
I'm so upset I just lost my take homes for neurontin and I've never taken it in my life! What the hell is going on?
Hey just because it didn't happen to you ,doesn't mean it won't happen with someone else.Are you reading the other posts???..it DOESN'T happen..
I take 800mg gabapentin and it showed up in a drug test as barbiturate and amphetamine. So if you don't wish to fail do not take any drug you're not sure about.
I have had many drug screens for employment. I am a nurse. The first thing I do is get a pharmacy print out of my medications, I have them keep the list and document in thier notes. Once I came up for Opiates and once came up negative. I take 300mg a 2 a day for nerve pain . Once test was sent out for further testing the positive then ruled out.
No i gave some to my husband and he got drug tested the next day and came back positive for opiates and benzos and he refuses to take pain pills
Rick & anyone else concerned with testing dirty on a urine or mouth swab drug test. If you know you've not taken the drug you're accused of, demand a blood test. Both those methods are notoriously prone to give false positive result. You don't have to accept that kind of bull and you don't want it in your medical record. I was shocked the day my Dr came in and asked if I was taking oxycodone in addition to the morphine he prescribed. He's the one who told me about the false positive which he believed happened in my case. It devastated me nonetheless! I went home and did research, finding out just how common it is!

Can gabapintin mes up a oxycoden test and get positive for morphine
I am on probation. I do not and have not had anything in my system for 2 years. I haven't failed a drug test in two years. I was told that neurotin did not come bk in a test. And I took one Friday and had a drug test today(Thursday) been 6 days. And I failed for benzos!! So do not take neurotin if u have a drug test!!
To everyone reporting false positives on urine or swab drug screenings, if you've not taken the drug showing the false pos why would you not stand your ground demand a blood or hair stand test? Folks give false positives every day. It's very common .
Yes gabapentin will give false positive for methamphatimine
my meds have been changed so many times,but the one constant med is neurotin yet my drug screens keep coming back with different things like weed which I don't do I don't know what is going on I was taken off my zanax because five test came back with something different and no Xanax how does that happen
