Hi aaron,

I wasn't able to locate any specific details on this, but from what I could gather, 'askdocweb' mentions that, "Metronidazole can cause interference on EMIT assays that invalidates results."

I've been trying to figure out what exactly this means, but you can see where I referenced it from here:

NOTE: Just scroll down to 'Metronidazole', as the drug list is in alphabetical order.

Other than this, I haven't heard or read any statements involving this medication and false positives.

I hope this helps!
