melissa Says:


I recently took a mouth swab for a drug test and it tested a high positive result for cocaine and i do not use!!! The only thing i did minutes prior to the test was rinse my mouth with a mouthwash. It was a meijer off-brand type, alcohol free, light mint. It's ingredients contain water, sorbitol, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfate, benzoic acid, sodium benzoate, poloxamer 407, sodium saccharin, flavor, sucralose, green 3, yellow 10. Could the mouthwash be the reason for the false positive for cocaine? Please help, I am trying to prove my innocence. Thank you so very much.

Not true! Swab tests are used for current or recent detection. Unless you are a daily habitual user and the drug is built up in your system over a long period of time, swab tests standard detection is 3-7 days at best.

Can anyone Here Answer this false-positive for cocaine question?

I too have a false-positive although i doubt anyone BUT me knows it is a false-positive. My prescribed medication showed up so I know it is My Swab-Test.. however the cocaine, you'd think I'd have remembered that. (joke) But nothing is funny since it isn't true - were I on probation or parole this would mean my life. And I'm sure I can't be the only who came up with this.

I was also told it showed the cut-off amount of 2-whatevers. But why would there even BE a cut-off amount? I would think Zero amount of cocaine should be the result not some scant cut-off amount of something i didn't even use. I don't have drug using friends, i don't have drug selling friends. zip. But I DO go to a Methadone clinic for last 10 years. Can that cut-off amount come from the friggin walls or what!! ridiculous.

I can't stand this kind of drama - any drama! 0 but esp the type i have zero control of. Apparently it hit the Cut-Off level of 2 N ML (< or whatever the '2' stands for) argh. SO Question: WHAT IS THIS Cut-Off Amount Thing? And why isn't the cut-off ZERO? And How would anyone even come up for a cut-off amount or any amount without using it to begin with? Very annoying and so not right.

ANYONE?
Thanks.

I recently tested positive for cocaine on my saliva test. I have never used cocaine in my life! I immediately went to get blood drawn to check for liver/kidney infection and diabetes. All came back good. I am on prescribed medication and they are 1mg kolonipin, 200mg Zoloft and 150mg Wellbutrin. I had a large Red Bull right before my test. Would the Red Bull interfere with the above meds for a false positive for Cocaine on a saliva test?

"What would make u test positive for cocaine?" - pretty positive cocaine would make you test positive for cocaine, that was a very poorly asked question. I hope the way you worded it isn't an actual question. If it is that's hard to believe anyone even a drug addict wouldn't know the answer to what would cause a failed drug test, um drugs might do it haha. Crack will also cause a cocaine fail because it is a cocaine based substance; just bc the chemical compound seems to be altered it's still cocaine.

I tested positive for Suboxone and NEVER used that in my life. I take Lyrica, Persantine, potassium and HCD prescribed by the pain clinic. This is very disturbing as they have canceled my contract over something not true. What could cause this? Also shouldn't patients have rights when given adverse decisions?

I feel vindicated! After many hours of research and contacting the Lyrica manufacturer, I received a letter from my doctor who now states after contacting Pfizer Lyrica may give false positives for opiates. Their lab technician concluded this as well. They have discharged me as a patient because during my frustration I reached out to the media. So be it, maybe all my research will help the next patient.

Red Bull has 0.13ml of cocaine in it, so it could of possibly gave a false positive.

Omg the EXACT thing happened to me and i tested positive 3 TIMES in a row and this is like one month after another at the METHADONE CLINIC!!!! The only things I can come up with is around 3 months ago when I got the first false positive I had started drinking red bull on a daily basis sometimes several of them in one day, OR the 2nd thing I thought it could be was the vaporizer smoking cuz thats also around the same time I started smoking that and i use a high milligram of nicotine in the juices I buy sometimes as high as 24mg and I buy them from all different places so I'm wondering if either one of those is causing this. Do you by any chance do either one of those I mentioned, Redbull or vapor smoker?

Same thing happened to me, not 1 time but 3 times and the only thing I'm doing before the swab test is drinking Cuban wawa Coffee with low fat french vanilla creamer. This is screwing with my life and i've dosed 3 times since 5/5/2016, the last time being 8/2/2016 and failed for cocaine on 12/8/2016.

This awful what's happening to us! We have no recourse and I still can't find a pain doctor to treatment because of what the previous doctor has in my records. I've done absolutely nothing wrong!
