My over the counter meds are, nyquil (migraine treatment along with the compazine) calcium, prenatal vitamin, B12, D3. please help, my take home status will be revoked, and I know I didn't do it.. ## Ok update.

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 For Methadone
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... ...

false positives
I tested positive for cocaine. I take 200mg of Seroquell. I have taken tylenol pm and nyquil for my flu. I was wondering can this give me a false reading? 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. I wish you the best, and hope that this situation can be resolved for you! James ## Question: my doc presc'd seroquel to help with my anxiety. However... ...

false positive on drug test for benzodiazepines what can cause this
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. Ive been taking flomax percocets aleve benadryl nyquil ...

CAN LORATAB+SOMA=FALSE POSITIVE FOR DILAUDID ON DRUG SCREEN
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! Are there any comments or questions? ## I have a priscription of loritab can i take dilaudid or suboxine. i have to take a test for drug court its a 10 panel urine test i am jus... ...

what could cause a positive test for methadone
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%. Sharron, in your case, it could have been the NyQuil, as it has been known to cause a false positive for Methadone... ...

False Positive Urine Screens
can cough medicine cause a false positive for benzos ? i am on suboxone and took some cough medicine and came up dirty for benzos and i have never touched them at all and know im in fear that i may lose my suboxone from this !!!! PLEASE HELP ## What type of cough medicine? There are many on the market, so I can't help you without knowing the brand name or ingredients that were in it. Learn more drug test details here. As to the test, did they send it out to an actual lab to have it tested further? Because that more precise testing should distinguish what you've actually taken and eliminated false positives. ## no they did not send it to a lab they had me come in a few days later and take another urine screen i was taking nyquil cold and cough . my urine screen was negative for b... ...

False Positive Benzodiazepines
I have been taking suboxone for almost a year and had to move to a new doc. They drug tested me and said I tested positive for benzos. The funny thing is I have not taken ANY benzos. I have to go take another test today at 5 and I am scared s**tless cuz they said if benzos are still in my system then they can not see me. Knowing that I haven't taken any benzos makes me wonder if I might still test positive for it again. I did take some cough syrup and some percs but that is it. What could cause this? ## Well, it could be something in the cough syrup, some of them, such as NyQuil and a few others contain ingredients that will cause a false positive for other substances. Do you remember what kind of cough syrup you took or what was in it? I will gladly look it up for you to check. ## ... ...

I Was Tested For Drugs By Cps And Do Not do drugs They Said My Test Came Back Positive Take Any Medication Except Insulin Only When Fee
I was tested by cps for drugs. I was told , yet shown no evidence that I tested positive for methamphetimine. I had a few needles laying out as I take diabetes insulin. Other than that I do not take anything but asperin. Then in conversation with the crisis line I found out nyquil,vicks inhaler, and eyedrops for algeries...which I didn't consider drugs and zyrtec..which I had taken weeks before could have caused the false positive. How do I get help with this? ## Hi sue, I have to agree that the number of medications or substances responsible for causing false-positives are quite staggering, considering that they have the technology to identify the exact substances in question, but prefer to use cheaper methods for standard drug tests. At this point in time, the best advice I can of... ...
