Does plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) cause false positives on drug test?

Does plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) cause false positives on drug test?

Only. 01% have: That means that 1 in 10, 000 people taking plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine) reported having a false positive result on a urine drug screen. If that happens to anyone w/ a Rx for it - I'll wager that it would be recognized as an error and no bad consequences would happen for the individual. Don't worry. Best! ...Read more

Why did my drug test show positive for cocaine?

Why did my drug test show positive for cocaine?

Few possibilities: There are 3 possible explanations: clerical error (you got the wrong test results), false positive (something legitimate fooled the test), and true positive (you really had Cocaine in your system). There are not many false positives for the Cocaine test, although liver or kidney disease, diabetes, and the antibiotic Amoxicillin reportedly can do it. ...Read more

Can taking adipex show positve on a drug test after taking 5 hours before?

Can taking adipex show positve on a drug test after taking 5 hours before?

Absolutely.: Adipex is phentermine, a form of amphetamine. While the clinical effect of amphetamines may last no more than a few hours, the elimination half-life, the time it takes the body to rid itself of half of the total amount, can be 10 to 13 hours. It would take up to five half-lives to eliminate all the drug from your system. ...Read more

My friend smokes crack around her baby. My question is if a drug test is done on baby will it show positive? Just need an answer please

My friend smokes crack around her baby. My question is if a drug test is done on baby will it show positive? Just need an answer please

Dangerous to baby: I can't say if a drug test of the baby will be positive, but the impact on the baby's health will be negative. Upper and lower respiratory damage results from exposure. It's viewed as child abuse in some jurisdictions. The mother's use during pregnancy also did harm if it was the case. It'is serious and your friend needs to know the risks. You can't make her stop but she should. I hope she does! ...Read more

I have been clean and in a program for 7 years and just had a drug test show up positive for Codeine without taking it. The test said 47ng/mL- causes?

I have been clean and in a program for 7 years and just had a drug test show up positive for Codeine without taking it. The test said 47ng/mL- causes?

We need to talk: As a pathologist, I would not accept this level as indicating codeine use. These assays generate background noise and low levels are to be expected when there's been no drug ingestion. This is about a sixth of 300 ng/mL which is a common cutoff for codeine. The lab's pathologist should agree or risk liability. I believe you're clean. If someone else doesn't, get a lawyer. ...Read more

If I took 0.5mg of Xanax (alprazolam) 24hrs before a pre-employment drug test will it show up as positive I am a male 49 years old 6ft2in tall 210lbs and have not used Xanax (alprazolam) before

If I took 0.5mg of Xanax (alprazolam) 24hrs before a pre-employment drug test will it show up as positive I am a male 49 years old 6ft2in tall 210lbs and have not used Xanax (alprazolam) before

It may: Depending on what test they use. Xanax (alprazolam) and Klonopin are not metabolized into the usual molecule that drug screening kits are looking for (at least not in large amounts) - oxazepam. There are kits that look for it. If you have a prescription for xanax, (alprazolam) that is an iron clad defense unless it is a safety=sensitive job. If it was not prescribed, you are misusing (if not abusing) the drug. ...Read more

How long will I show up positive for marijuana. I quit on november 6 got a drug test december 12. I'm 5"11 165 lbs please help?

If there was only cocaine use from weeks 18 to 27.Been clean since and the baby is due in November. Will the baby show positive on drug test when born?

If there was only cocaine use from weeks 18 to 27.Been clean since and the baby is due in November. Will the baby show positive on drug test when born?

Redirect attention: Good job on getting clean. That is step in the right direction. Now you must focus on the health of the baby and not on whether or not someone will find out about your past. Tell your doctor what you have done and when you stopped. That way he or she can take care of you most effectively to keep your baby safe. Also you can enroll in a NA program to help you stay clean. ...Read more

If there has been no cocaine use thru the whole 3 trimester. Will the baby show positive on drug test when born?

If there has been no cocaine use thru the whole 3 trimester. Will the baby show positive on drug test when born?

No.: If you have been abstinent throughout your pregnancy, neither you nor your child will test positive for cocaine at birth. However, if you relapse, keep in mind that cocaine will stay in breast milk for up to 24 hours. Your ability to abstain for this long suggests you have the capacity to remain abstinent indefinitely and I recommend that you do so for both you and your child's sake.. ...Read more
