Can Lidocaine Cause A Positive Drug Test
I went to court, and took a drug screen and I was tested positive for cocaine. The day before my doctor gave me a shot that had lidocaine in it. ## From what I could gather, Caine anesthetics seem to be notorious for causing false positives for cocaine. This includes Novocaine, Benzocaine, Lidocaine, etc. If you were to take any course of action, I would recommend insisting on additional testing & perhaps requesting a GC/MS test (Gas Chromatography / Mass Spectrometry), as it is considered to be the most definitive method for confirming the presence of a drug in the urine. I think it's down right unfair for companies to not use this type of testing right off the bat, since there are so many false-positives being reported on a daily basis. At this point in time though, the best a... ...

can lidocaine cause a false positive cocaine drug test
Is there any kind of food or meditation that can cause a false positive drug test for cocaine? ## I had a hair drug test that came up positive for cocaine. I'm dealing with an addiction specialist who says that I'm a heavy user of cocaine for the last 30 days. Intetesting that I have not used cocaine. I'm wondering if anyone has had a positive hair test for cocaine and did not use and what might have happened here. Given the reputation of this dr, I went for an independent test, who also told me there was no reason to go for an independent test that it would prove nothing. I went anyway. The only thing I've used is Lidoderm patches for my back. ...

Went to dentist had tooth pulled. Dentist gave lidocaine with something else. Had a positive urine test for amphetamines. Do these do this? Or amoxicillin? I have to take antibiotic too for a while. Tooth is infected. ## No, neither the Lidocaine, nor the amoxicillin have been known to cause false positives for Amphetamines on a drug test. Learn more drug test details here.

Urine Drug Test Lidocaine
I am getting electrolysis twice a week for facial hair. The electrologist has been putting a topical 5% lidocaine on my face to numb the pain from the needles. I am applying for a new job and will take a urine test and wondered if this will cause a problem or show up in some way in my urine? ## It is difficult to say, it really depends on how much of it is being used and the concentration of it. It is chemically related to Cocaine, though distantly, and just like Novacaine and other similar drugs, it has been know to cause false positives for it, on some drug tests. It may be best to stop the treatments for several days, before you have the test, to possibly give your body time to process it out. Are there any other questions or comments? ...

Can Lidocaine Test Positive For Cocaine In A Hair Test
I have a small delivery/transportation business in Ohio. My husband & I decided to grow our company by purchasing a vehicle that requires a CDL B. The guy we have driving that truck has his class A but if he quit or needed a day off we had no one to fill in so I took classes to get my CDL A's in March of 2014. After receiving my CDL’s [for experience & financial reasons] I made the decision to sign on & drive for a large trucking company in June of 2014. The company performed a hair drug test on me but apparently did not get they're results until after I started the orientation. During my orientation the MRO called & tells me that I tested positive for cocaine. I knew that there had been a mistake because I am not a drug user. He asked me had I been to the ... ...

False Positive On Drug Test For Cocaine Will Lidocaine Do That

Learn more Lidocaine details here. There are also other medications that may cause it. What else do you take? ## I just had a baby on September 15th and had to have an emergency c-section, which they filled me with so much drugs in my epidural that my hands and also my head were numb as well.

Can Lidocaine Shots Every Month Test Positive For Cocaine
I have been getting lidocaine shots in my back every month for 4 yrs and lidocaine infusion. every 3 months would that show as cocaine on a drug stick test ## Hi J, Other than a few forum posts from different individuals, I haven't located any concrete details confirming the possibility of a false positive for Cocaine from Lidocaine. However, I do have reason to believe that it's still a strong possibility due to the faulty standard drug tests they use today. A lot of these standardized drug tests have a fairly high false-positive response, where it seems as though anything is likely to show up, no matter what you took. To my knowledge false positives are known to occur on them anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. Have you asked your doctor yet about getting re-tested? ...

Can Lidocaine Show A False Positive For Alcohol In Urine Test
i need to know if lidocaine viscous can show up as alcohol in a urine test. ## can lidocaine show up as cocaine on i urine test i got a friend that failed a drug test for cocaine but he said he dont do that he said he used lidocaine for a toothache i need to know asap ## On the alcohol question, no it should not show up as that, however, if you have a prescription for it, you should inform them of this, when you go in for testing. Which leads to pnut's question and yes, it can cause a false positive for Cocaine on some tests. It is distantly related to it. Since this works as an anesthetic, there can be severe problems associated with using it improperly and overdosing, so it shouldn't be used with a doctor's instructions and supervision. Are there any other comments or ques... ...

Just to be on the safe side, take your prescription for lidocaine to the testing site so they can make a notation on your test. ...

My boyfriend took a drug test and takes them once a week for the past yr . He has never failed . I had an ellegic reaction and had to use lidocain on my private area . We had sex the next day he failed for methadone ? Went to jail . Can lidocain b a false positive for methadone? ## You're dumb if you believe your boyfriend when he tells you it's your fault he failed for methadone because of lidocaine. He's a drug addict and he's afraid to tell you the truth. With that said, you two have some issues to work on. One being your level of intellect in believing dips***s like him, second, his drug abuse. Happy New Year! :) ...

Can An Epidural Test Positive For Morphine
UA positive for morphine offender claimed she had an epidural 4 days ago. ## The drugs commonly used in epidural anesthesia are bupivicaine (Marcaine, Sensorcaine); chloroprocaine (Nesacaine); and lidocaine (Xylocaine). Of those mentioned, my research tells me that Lidocaine can cause false positives, because it is distantly related to Cocaine. (but I haven't found information on the other drugs listed). On the cheaper, non-certified drug tests, false positives are known to occur anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. There are actually quite a few discussion threads on this topic floating around the internet. I hope the information above helps! ## There are new epidurals that are morphine based. I had one on 3/26 when i had a csection. So yes, there are morphine based epidurals. I als... ...
