will taking coricidin cough & cold cause me to fail a drug test?

Probably not: It looks to be comprised of antihistamine and an antitussive. Both of these are legal which is why one can buy Coricidin off the shelf. In any case, prior to the drug test you will be asked what medication you are taking. Be honest in case something does show up. Good luck.
