Can vitamin B2 cause a false positive on a drug test?

Can vitamin B2 cause a false positive on a drug test?

No: I thought this was a strange question, but in researching it found out that this is claimed on some websites. However, I am quite certain that b2 does not cause a false positive on drug tests. It can make your urine bright yellow & some who drink a lot of fluids to dilute their urine before a test will sometimes take b2 so the urine looks yellow rather than clear. Will not cause false positive. ...Read more

Will drinking Chia seeds in my protein shakes cause a false positive on a drug test?

Will drinking Chia seeds in my protein shakes cause a false positive on a drug test?

Highly doubt it: Chia seeds are very healthy (see https://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/patientinstructions/000727.htm)
Searching online I saw one report of someone claiming chia seeds caused then to test positive for opiates, and saw that a colleague here states chia can cause positive tests- but she didn't give a reference. I see no other evidence or reason why chia seeds should cause a false positive test. ...Read more

Can naprelan (naproxen) or aspirin per day use cause a false positive on a drug test that includes testing for marijuana test?

Can naprelan (naproxen) or aspirin per day use cause a false positive on a drug test that includes testing for marijuana test?

Yes Naprelan (naproxen) can but: Apparently Naproxen (naprelan) can rarely cause a false positive on some marijuana screening tests. If this happens you can ask for it to be confirmed with a more specific test which will show that the positive was actually false.

Can amoxicillin cause a false positive for cocain on a drug test?

Can amoxicillin cause a false positive for cocain on a drug test?

No Proof: The only medical trial to test this was done in on 33 Amoxicilin pts in 2008 and no false positives were found: http://jat.oxfordjournals.org/content/32/4/315.full.pdf

Contrast this with the thousands who claim this to be true on the net and we have a dilemma.
Perhaps a Lexisnexis legal search for case law is more meaningful as legal perception is reality. ...Read more

I took metformin 500 mg and I was wondering how long after stopping that it was out of your system and could it cause a false positive drug test?

I took metformin 500 mg and I was wondering how long after stopping that it was out of your system and could it cause a false positive drug test?

Metformin 500: Metformin 500 is usually taken twice a day — out of your system every 12 hours.

I don't think it can cause a faulse positive test if you are monitoring your blood sugar.

If you think the metformin associated blood glucose values are too high or too low please contact your doctor. ...Read more

Does gabapentin cause a false positive on a urine drug test?

Does gabapentin cause a false positive on a urine drug test?

Not Likely: It is unlikely that Neurontin (Gabapentin) will trigger a false positive urine test for drugs. However, if you are taking other medications then these medication may alone or in combination with Neurontin trigger a positive urine screen. Also, poppy seeds and other foods, fermented or otherwise may result in positive screen. Here's a reference: http://dig.pharm.uic.edu/faq/2011/Feb/faq1.aspx ...Read more

No: Conventional urine drug screens (uds) look for metabolites from naturally occurring opioids (like morphine and codeine), but fentanyl is a synthetic opioid which is metabolized to different products. These products are not picked up by uds. ...Read more

Can having hep c cause a false positive urine or swab drug test?

What drug was tested: Hep C per se should not give a false positive drug test, however, it begs the question, how did you get Hep C? Were you abusing intravenous drugs?
If you have Hep C, get treatment as it is mostly curable now. ...Read more

I'm on vistaral, nuerontin,a muscle relaxer, buspar, and Topamax (topiramate) and celexa would any of those cause a false positive on an instant drug test for benzos?

I'm on vistaral, nuerontin,a muscle relaxer, buspar, and Topamax (topiramate) and celexa would any of those cause a false positive on an instant drug test for benzos?

Drug interactions: You are on 6 medications (don't know the name of the muscle relaxant) that have serious drug interactions. It's possible that the muscle relaxant may show up on a drug screen. See doctor without delay to review your meds and cut back what you're taking for safety reasons. Hope this helps. ...Read more

I took drug test today and it was positive for tca, I regularly take an OTC sleep aid with diphenhydramine. Couldn't have caused the false positive?

I took drug test today and it was positive for tca, I regularly take an OTC sleep aid with diphenhydramine. Couldn't have caused the false positive?

"tca"????: Did you mean THC (marijuana or cannabis)? TCA medically usually means tricyclic antidepressant, and these are actually chemically similar to benadryl (diphenhydramine). If all that was done was a SCREENING test, there are lots of potential false positives, and if used for legal purposes, all screening tests should be confirmed with a more sophisticated test, usually gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy. ...Read more

What to do if I had a false positive on a drug test, is there a chance I'll still get hired?

Not if they think it: Is positive. Companies that operate ethically should have a drug testing policy that requires confirmation of any positive on a screening test. The confirmatory tests, at this state of their development, DO NOT HAVE false positives. If you tested positive, and they confirmed the test with a sophisticated method the way they should, it means YOU USED THAT SUBSTANCE. So I would say stop using. ...Read more
