Tagamet is a Protagonist for Methadone and Xanax, How about Ativan?

- Tagamet is a protagonist for some narcotics (like Methadone) and some benzodiazepenes (like Xanax)... Meaning if you take say 800mg of Tagamet 3 hours Before taking your regular Methadone dose, it will make the effects of the Methadone last longer and stronger (< not always stronger if longer acting, but by experience it does with Methadone) But I 'think' I read that Ativan is not one of the Benzos that Tagamet (generic Cimitedine - sp?) will elongate the effects of. I'm worried since - big surprise! - I have urine drug tests every week or 2 at the Methadone clinic where they Watch it leave and enter the cup.

Can taking a few Tagamet HD pills make u fail a drug test?

I am a client at the methadone clinic & I take my med as prescribed & I don't take any other narcotics/prescriptions & have always passed my u.a's. I took 4 tagamet HD pills about 2 hours before taking a drug test & when I got results back, it said I had failed with oxymorphone. I did not take anything else besides tagamet. Can this mess up my drug test results? Plz help. I'm so confused on how I failed this test! Thanks ## Can Tagamet show up on my drug test at my methadone clinic? I have been in mmt for years. My methadone is not working as well. I was looking it up saying that it can help but I'm worried about failing my drug test. I have been clean for a long time and that would not help me. Any advice or anything would be great. Thank you.
