Does Chlorhexidine gl cause false readings on a tox screen drug test

Will Chlorhexidine cause a drug screen to be negative for anything? I went and it said there was a faint line for Suboxone. Please help me. ## I did a drug test for probation and it said that I tested positive for alcohol so they sent a test out and it came back positive. Is this due to the chlorhexidine gluconate 0.12% oral rinse? ## I had a positive for cocaine and never used it.

clorfex and Galocipro are used for what

Is chlorhexidine (peridex) gel available anywhere?

I am prescribed peridex for oral use. While traveling in Italy, I ran out of the liquid. Visiting a pharmacy, I obtained chlorhexidine gel. Name: Plax-Gel. This product is so much more effective, twice the strength, and it travels well as compared to the liquid. Product of Switzerland and Italy. It does not seem to be available in the USA. Anyone know about its availability? Anywhere? ## Hello, Kate! How are you? You are correct, it doesn't appear that the gel is available in the U.S., I'm sorry. Thus, obtaining it elsewhere for import would be considered illegal. The FDA classifies this as an antimicrobial. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, blistering, burning and headache. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks Vern. Showed the tube of gel to my ...
