False Positive : There are a variety of common medications (some over the counter, some prescription) that can give a false positive result for Methamphetamines: Metformin (glucophage), Trazadone, Fluoxetine (prozac), Labetolol (trandate), Psuedoephedrine (sudafed), Buproprion (Wellbutrin), and Quinolone antibiotics (Ciprofloxacin, Levofloxacin) Talk to your Dr about meds you take that could cause this.
