I have heard that sudafed (pseudo ephedrine) can cause false positives for meth. Google it and see what you come up with but I have heard this more times than I can count. I don't have any experience since I never take cold/sinus medication. Too many I am allergic to so I stay away from all of them. Good luck and let me know what you find out. It's crazy, but it seems the more "scientifically correct" these drug screens get the more false positives come back for various drugs. Its not fair to a lot of people and you would THINK your doctor would know about other drugs that can generate false positives.....but, they don't seem to know or they just don't care. You can have clean urine for years and one time it comes back dirty and the docs, etc, treat you like a liar! Not fair at all!

All of these answers are wrong. Let me guess? Do you get heartburn? Take Zantac or a generic version of it? That's what's doing it. Call Zantacs parent company and ask to speak to a nurse. Record the call though bc they will not send u any info, only will tell you or if ur dr calls them, they will tell them. I pray there is a class action against them someday. It has caused me some horrible distress.
