A 25-year-old male asked:

will nyquil severe show up on a drug test?

Should not: There are no controlled substances in the nyquil. Occasionally the decongestants will show up on a drug test as amphetamines. It is best to avoid it a few days before a drug screen.

Does xenical give a false positive drug test?

No: I know of no research that shows xenical can cause a false-positive drug test. All xenical does is block some of the fat from your diet from being absorbed, thus decreasing your calorie intake. This shouldn't cause either a urine or a blood drug test to become positive.

Can I fail a drug test taking the diet pill, ali.?

Hmmm...: Best answer is to tell the tester that you are taking "alli"(i think that is the correct spelling) before you get the test. Honesty is the best policy! of course, stopping the supplement about 1 week prior to the test should give your body ample time to metabolize it out of your system. Ask you doctor just to be sure.

A 19-year-old female asked:

Is it safe to take niquil with claritin (loratadine)?

2 doctor answers2 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok

Probably ok to do: Claritin (loratadine) is a once-a-day medication, and does wear off some by night time. If nyquil, with its own antihistamine, is taken at night time, there should not be a big problem. Nyquil is usually used for just a few days during cold or flu symptoms. A doctor can evaluate prolonged or bothersome symptoms, to see if there something serious going on.
