Bromfed Dm And Failed Etg Alcohol Test

AMO Says:

I've been taking Bromfed DM for 9 days. I had failed an EtG alcohol test this morning. Can this be because of the Bromfed DM?

Yes, it could be the reason:

NDC Code: 60432-837, among others...

Each 5 mL (1 teaspoonful) contains:

- Brompheniramine Maleate, USP 2 mg
- Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride, USP 30 mg
- Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide, USP 10 mg
- Alcohol 0.95% v/v

Inactive Ingredients: artificial butterscotch flavor, citric acid anhydrous, dehydrated alcohol, FD&C Red No. 40, glycerin, liquid sugar, methylparaben, propylene glycol, purified water and sodium benzoate. It may contain 10% citric acid solution or 10% sodium citrate solution for pH adjustment.

That being said, you should be able to show your prescription and explain the fact that your medication contains alcohol in it. I hope this helps and wish you the best!

You are not alone with these stupid etg screenings. Have you asked for an ets (sterile culture). They cost much more and most insurance companies will scare them away - what are you flying an airplane to work (that was rhetorical)..?

I know a woman that was imprisoned for losing weight. I was diagnosed alcoholic with a BAC of 0! Not kidding. I used to take a yeast supplement/combo thing for managing triglycerides; without being explicit; I was not sexually active and I do not have a yeast infection. I am a male.

I would sooner question their peroxided premixed antibiotic "agar" ... This was like a 6 year battle... Hate to see people go through what I have gone though. Yes ask for a full lipid.
