Claritin D causing a false positive on drug tests for methamphetamine
9 Replies RSS
If I tested positive for methamphetamine because of claritin d (and now that sample is sent to be retested at the lab), can they tell it was a false positive? ## Claritin D has ephedrine in it. Just simply explain that you took claritin D. It's not technically a false positive because it contains a key component. ## J, I'm not 100% sure but I believe that Clariton D has pseudoephedrine HCL in it which would show up as you using Meth. I've had the same problem with an OTC sinus medication that I take coming back as being positive for Meth. I paid for a confirmation test($32) which came back as being negative for Meth. I hope this helps. ## My dad has been with the same company for 28 years and they switched owners. Well they did a drug test for everyone and my dad doesn't... ...

false positive urine drug test for meth
4 Replies RSS
I tested positive for meth in a urine drug test; however i have been clean for 3+ years. I'm currently taking prescription medications: omeprazole, hydrocodone/acetaminophen, escitalopram, tramadol, temazepam, lorazepam, sinvastatin,. OTC: aspirin, claritin and afrin. Can any of these medications be the cause of the positive drug test? ## Yes, some of the drugs you are on, and in combination may cause a false reaction on a cup or card test, and even on EIA. That is why it is very important to have every non-negative, or Positive test CONFIRMED by LC/MS/MS or GC/MS. That is the only way to know for sure. ## I believe that one of your medications for the seasonal allergies has pseudoephedrine in it or something very similar that is used as a nasal decongestant. This will cause false p... ...

omeprazole causing a false positive drug test
2 Replies RSS
I tested positive for tramadol and all I take is omeprazole once a day. I've been taking it for about a month and don't take any other drugs because I am in recovery. How is this possible? ## Will taking omeprazole 20 mg give a false positive in a mouth swab? I also take risperidone, klonopin, and several other psych meds. ## I take Claritin-D, Midol Complete and Omeprazole almost daily and my drug test came up with a false positive. I don't do drugs, so I'm confused. ...

causes for false positives on a urine test
3 Replies RSS
could taking Claritin-D give a false positive for meth on a urine test ## According to askdocweb, the answer to your question is yes. Both of the active ingredients in Claritin-D (Loratadine + Pseudoephedrine) are known to cause false positives for Amphetamines, and I'm sure this also includes Methamphetamines, because certain drug tests cannot distinguish between drug class vs drug name, etc. I hope this helps to answer your question! ## i have doctors and nurses and pharmacist tell me that claitin d does not show up in urine test for methamphetamine.does it show up as amphtamines then?i was going to have brain sergury and they cancelled because they said my urine test was positive w/ this in it and it would have a bad reaction w/ the anastasia. ## Yes Claritin D will show IP posit... ...

i'm taking clarittin 24 hour and tested positive for meth on a drug screen. I don't use meth., so I'm wondering if the claritin I took could account for the reading. ## I'm not finding the Loratidine in Clartin listed as causing a false positive for Methamphetamine, though some of the antihistamines can cause a false positive for Methadone. Have you taken anything else? ## What medications can give you a false positive reading to meth in a drug urine test? ...

what can make a false positive for methamphetamine?
1 Reply RSS
I had a test done that came back positive for methamphetamine. I was on metoprolol, and claritin-D. Which of these can come back as a positive for methamphetamines? ## Hi tina - it is possible that the Pseudoephedrine in Claritin-D is what caused the test to come back positive for amphetamines. You should definitely bring up the fact that you are on this medication because that should be factored in. Hope this helps!

false positive for methamphetamine phenylephrine and pseudoephedrine
1 Reply RSS
I was told by my Dr. to take Claritin D (pseudoephedrine) and I already had been taking a nasal spray containing phenylephrine. I tested positive in a saliva test for ephedrine and methamphetamine. I have never taken methamphetamine in my life. Can these two compounds cause a false positive for methamphetamine? ## Ephedrine and pseudoephedrine (I'll use "ephedrine" to mean both from this point forward) can, and often do, show up as methamphetamine on a drug screen. The two compounds have nearly identical molecular structure, the only difference being a single oxygen molecule more (ephedrine) or less (methamphetamine). The above notwithstanding, a drug screen can still differentiate the two but it takes a a certain kind of test called GC/MS (gas chromatography/mass spectromet... ...

False hair test for methamphetamine
3 Replies RSS
Hi, my bf had to take a lot of Claritin D last summer and this summer. He had to take a hair test. They said he tested positive for methamphetamine. I know for a fact he has never touched methamphetamine. So just wondering if taking c d can cause a positive to methamphetamine? ## Taking Claritin should not cause a false positive for methamphetamine. One of the big advantages of hair drug testing is that it is good at differentiating substances. You could talk to an MRO (Medical Review Officer) to see what might be interfering with the test. An MRO is a doctor trained to interpret drug test results by looking at the over all picture to see what might be happening. You can find an MRO in your area at You could also do you own Hair 5 Drug Panel test to verify results. If the hai... ...
