Can gabapentin cause false positive result in drug test for THC??
Hi, Im 37yr. old caucasian male. Im in methadone maintenance, and i have begun slowly taperin off it. I take 90mg methadone, 30mg oxazepam morning only, and now I tried recreational dosage gabapentin (neurontin). I learned, that for fun, its worth of nothing except poisoning own body. Dose of gabapentin was 7x300 = 2100mg. Passive smoke is impossible, and I haven eat any hemp pruducts. I blame that false positive Gabapentin.. can it really be so? ## Hi Deadboy, I am currently in the same situation! I also am treated for opiate dependency at a methadone clinic. The dr at the clinic prescribed me 300mg 3x's a day of Neurontin and I am now testing positive for thc and I DO NOT SMOKE! I have recently quit the medication and I am waiting. This my last drug screen to come back. Thus is ru... ...

Been going to a pain clinic for abou a year due to spinal stenosis mainly. Went in last week for a med check and urine drug screen.

Also take lexapro, gabapentin, zanaflex, otc allergy med with loratidine, and a multi vitamin.

False Positive On Blood Test
Can neurontin give a false positive for cocaine in a urine drug test? ## Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, it is an anticonvulsant, which has also been shown to help certain types of nerve pain. And no, it is not known to cause false positives for any other drugs. Where you taking anything else? Even over the counter medications? ## This is for a family member. He was taking alleve and nyquil for tooth pain (possibly). He did have a root canal a few days later. Thanks for your response. ## Maria, had he had anything done to the tooth, prior to the root canal? If the dentist used anesthetic to numb it, then that could explain the false positive. Some of the anesthetics they use are distance relatives of cocaine and could cause false positives for it. Aleve has been kno... ...

False Positive On Drug Test For Hydromorphone
I take gabapentin, hydrocodone and oxycoxone but tested positive for hydomorphone in a drug test by my work places ## If they use one of the less expensive, non-certified tests then it was likely due to the Hydrocodone and/or Oxycodone that you take. It is well known that most narcotics will cause false positives for their relatives anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time on these types of tests. Learn more drug test details here. Did they send it out to be lab tested? ## Hydrocodone is converted to hydromorphone by enzymes in your liver. That's why the hydrocodone doesn't show up, it is broken down and coverted. ## Jay is correct. ...

False Positive Urine Drug Test For Phenobarbital
I have had 2 urine drug screens w a 2 1/2 wk difference between. The first GC/MS + phenobarbital >1000ng & the 2nd + 816ng. I've never taken this drug before. The meds I do take are: gabapentin, tramadol, ibuprofen, sumatriptan, omeprazole. Please help! ## Nothing you've listed is known to cause false positives for any type of Barbiturates, including Phenobarbital. Has your doctor had any ideas as to what may be causing it? Did you take anything else, even over the counter products? ## Not true. Google NSAIDs (ibuprofen) and phenobarbital. Several stories from legitimate sources about them causing a false positive for barbiturates. I know because I am arguing with my doctor over this very thing right now. I take Adderall and am required to get drug tested. She said anoth... ...

i have taken these medications in the past month, nurotin-celexa-buspar-naperson-flexeral-aleeve-benadryl, can any of these medications give a false positive on a unrine drug test as benzodiazipine ## No, none of them are Benzodiazepines, drugs in this class include substances such as Alprazolam (Xanax) and Clonazepam (Klonopin.) Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, this is an anticonvulsant that has been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. Read more: BuSpar contains the active ingredient Buspirone, it is used to treat anxiety disorders. Read more: The Naprosyn and Aleve both contain Naproxen, this is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, used to treat pain and swelling.

false positive for cocaine
I have severe neurapathy and use very strong topical oointment. It contains: marcaine, ketamine,ketaprophan, clonidine,gabapentin, lidocaine, aminitrypttyline, and lanacaine patches. The severe pereprial neurapathy can develop dermal ulcers. Clearly some ointmrnt that will enter the blood stream.. In addition, I take oral meds that may trip me, as antibiotics for the MRSA. , trileptal and percoset. thanks for help ## Almost all medications, whether ingested or topical, that have the caine at the end are distance cousins to Cocaine and with regular, heavy use they may cause a false positive for it on a drug test. It is rare, since not a lot usually enters the blood stream when they are applied topically, but it has been known to happen. Do you use this by prescription or is it something ... ...

False positive for diazepam
I tested positive for diazepam and nordiazepam on a toxicology drug screen. I do not take these drugs. Is it possible that zolpidem(I'm prescribed) could cause a false positive for benzo's? ## I tested positve for diazepam in a blood test. I do not nor have ever taken diazepam. I do take ambien, and have seen where ambien tests "false positive" for diazepam on a urine test. Can ambien also test "false positive" for diazepam in a blood test? ## Ambien contains the active ingredient Zolpidem and no, I haven't been able to find any information on it causing false positives for anything. Were you taking anything else, even over the counter products? ## Yes I was taking gabapentin, synthroid, motrin(800 mg.),81 mg aspirin,calcium,multi vitamns,seroquel,ranitidine,... ...

False Positive For Oxycodone
I currently take hydrocodone 5mg 4x, albuterol inhaler, ranitadine, vistaril, chantix, mobic, gabapentin and i have a medical marijuana card.. i was recently on doxycycline, and nizoral cream. I'm also a caretaker for someone. I handle their medication on an almost daily basis. I went to my doctor and she said i tested positive for oxycodone....there has to be some mistake. could i have absorbed any from handling the medication ## No, you shouldn't absorb enough for it to be detectable on a drug test, since the tablets are coated. It was more than likely just caused by the Hydrocodone you are taking, if the doctor is using a less expensive, non-certified test. Semi-synthetic and synthetic opiates are well known to cause false positives for their relatives on those types of tests... ...

What perscription Drugs Test Positive For Meth
i need to know some perscriptions drugs that would test positive for meth. ## Hi jodi, Are there any specific drugs that you have in mind? I can name a few drugs, but I believe it also depends on how accurate the drug test itself is; and since were talking about false-positives here, anything is bound to show up on the cheaper less reliable tests. I also have to ask whether or not your abbreviation is referring to Methadone or Methamphetamine? If you could post back with these details, that would be great! ## I'm curious for methadone? ## does Gabapentin 300mg, or Imdur 120mg cause a false positive for methamphetamines.. i came up positive for this on swab test then had to take urine test and waiting for call back from lab to ask on prescrip. meds.. but am a heart patient abd dont u... ...
