false positive on drug test for nyquil
2 Replies RSS
I have been in and out of jail and rehabs for the last year. I have finally found someone I love, got a job and I'm sincerely trying to live right. Since I have left rehab I cannot sleep, so I take large amounts of NyQuil to help me rest. I was drug tested at work the other day and it came back positive for cocaine. I am suspended from work now and that is a violation of my drug court so I'm in trouble with the law again. My question is, can NyQuil cause a false positive for cocaine? ## First off if you are doing as well as you say good for you. Bummer, this has happened and yes I have heard of this happening before. If I can suggest something don't let them get over on you. If you really haven't used and are clean then you need to fight till the last min. for your right... ...

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 For Methadone
10 Replies RSS
I was tested a couple weeks ago bye swab it came back as having methadone in my system I had been taking nightquil for a cold I was starting to get could it have come back false positive ## I just liked it up and yes, it seems that some of the ingredients in Nyquil can cause a false positive on some tests for Amphetamines, Heroine, Methamphetamines, Morphine, Methadone and other opiates. They don't specifically state which ingredient it is, but the resource I use lists only the medications that have been scientifically/medically proven to register false positives for other substances. So, if you weren't taking Methadone, the Nyquil is probably your answer. Are there any questions or comments? ## I am on several Rx drugs plus I take weekly injections of B-12, folic acid I also ta... ...

False Positive Drug Test (Methamphetamine)

I took a pre-employment hair drug test recently and was told a week later that I had failed the drug test because there were high levels of meth...The thing is, I've never done drugs (not even smoked pot, and not even one cigarette!), and I've never been around people who do smoke or do drugs! Plus, I don't take any medication, not even over-the-counter (no Advil, Tylenol, NyQuil, nothing!). I'm as square as square can be. I don't even drink! I'm in total shock. I was told that I would receive a letter in the mail if I want to contest, which I absolutely do. What could be the cause of meth showing up in my system, and how do I go about contesting the drug test? And are false-positives more common than I think? It's the only explanation here... ## Blood test !... ...

I am trying to get my daughter back and they are telling me that I tested positive for drugs when I dont eaven drink PLease help me. Maybe between the food I have been eating and the over the counter drugs with my prescription could cause this. ## Samantha, Is there any way you can produce proof that you have a prescription for Seroquel? Certain drugs definitely cause false positives. About the over the counter meds you took, I don't think those would be an issue for drug tests.

My son is taking aleve, ibuprofen, sertraline and has tested positive for benzodiazepines. He just started on trazadone and is still testing positive for benzodiazepines. Do you know if any of these can be the cause? ## Sertraline causes false positives about 26% of the time. In some people (like me), the body metabolizes it in such a way that it creates a benzo type chemical. Aleve will also cause false positives. ## Can jet alert or red bull or Hydrocodone/acetaminophen cause a false positive on drug screen for benzos ## Ive been testing dirty for benzodiazepines.

my drug screen came back positive for dilaudid which i have never taken. i do take loratab & soma along with blood preesure meds and statins. i have also been taking antibiotics & nyquill, dayquill, & alkaseltzer cold plus for bronchitis. could this make the test come back positive? ## In this case, it may have been the NyQuil, it has been shown to cause false positives for many substances on drug tests, including various opiates. Dialudid contains Hydromorphone, so it is an opiate narcotic and the NyQuil may explain it. And the Soma can even test positive for Morphine. I hope this information helps!

false positive from flexeril tramadol prednisone and nyquil
1 Reply RSS
I am going to be tested, but am not sure which test I will be required to take. can u tell me what the test will show if I take flexril, tramadol, prednisone, and nyquil ## As far as I know, prednisone shouldn't show up at all, and neither should the other things but each of the other is a possibility. Tramadol isn't necessarily an opiate but it works with the opiate receptors and can cause a false positive. Flexeril is a skeletal muscle relaxant and also isn't tested for on any ua as far as I've ever heard, but it has been known to cause false positives for benzodiazepines (Xanax, Valium, Ativan, etc.). And also NyQuil contains alcohol I believe and if your test includes alcohol as a panel it can show up depending on how far apart your last use was from your test and ot... ...

a random drug test yielded a positive test for methadone. If you are not taking methadone, how could that be? ## I am not taking methadone however a drug test for a job today showed positive. I do take several medications and take stuff (legal) like nyquil etc all the time what could have made me test positive ?? ## Methadone is a synthetic opiate and it is possible that on a test that isn't done by a certified lab, other substances could cause you to show a false positive for it, including other synthetic or semi-synthetic opiates. Few employers are required to use a certified lab and most of the regular, inexpensive labs do have an error rate that ranges fro 4 to 50%.
