Can you suggest foods that trigger 'false positive' drug test results?

Can you suggest foods that trigger 'false positive' drug test results?

As far as I know,: The only food that can cause positive results in urine (and other) drug testing is poppy seeds. This is actually not a false positive, because poppy seeds do contain very tiny amounts of a chemical related to morphine, papaverine, which is metabolized into morphine. I am not aware of any other food that can do this. They are found in pastries, bagels and other baked goods. ...Read more

Will benedryl effect the results of a drug test?

It will not...: Attempting to foil a drug screen will just add misery for you--your employer or whoever is requesting the drug screen will see you not just a dope but also a liar (trying to hide/sabotage your drug test). So, it is better to come clean. If you have a problem, ask for help and you will get more respect that way. Be good. Be sober. Be drug-free. Be respected. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi. I took 4 tynelol 500mg two days before I had a drug test I'm wondering if it will affect my results.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) levels: The only thing it should affect is your tylenol (acetaminophen) levels if they check for that. The other thing if you are chronically using tylenol (acetaminophen) is that your liver enzymes could be elevated but that is not part of a standard drug test. I assume you are referring to drug test where they test for drugs of abuse. ...Read more

I took a SAP 5 urine drug test. Will nicotine show up on the test? How long will it take to receive the results?

I took a SAP 5 urine drug test. Will nicotine show up on the test? How long will it take to receive the results?

No: Nicotine isn't tested for on the five panel test, but are you concerned about nicotine? I take it, you have a DOT safety sensitive job. You might not be allowed to smoke at work, but you didn't violate for nicotine. You violated for another substance, if you have already been referred to a SAP-Substance Abuse Professional. The test shouldn't take long before you will have the results. ...Read more

I recently took a preemployment drug test and failed for amphetamines& methamphetamines. I am wondering if it's possible my results are false positive?

I recently took a preemployment drug test and failed for amphetamines& methamphetamines. I am wondering if it's possible my results are false positive?

Did you take them?: If you didn't take any amphetamines I would say there is a false test. The fact that you are asking this question suggests you are looking for an excuse for you to abuse pills. Own up to your problem and get help. Looking for excusing is looking for someone to help enable your downhill course into addiction and abuse. You should tell whoever is testing all your prescribed and OTC medications. ...Read more

If I use fake urine for a drug test. And actually got a bit of cocaine in the urine sample, will it test negative in lab since there are no metaboli?

What a mess: I don't know if anyone can answer you w/ certainty. I'm usually opposed to drug testing (when it's to help you in rehab or part of probation/parole, it's good or okay) but you're doing some messy things and few get away w/ that way of living for long.
Many would say you're unconsciously making a cry for help by messing up so badly. Are you? ...Read more

I took a drug test, but was on my 1st day of period, so blood mixed in urine, will it affect the results?

Drug tests: Usually blood does not invalidate a drug test. I would read the insert if it was on a home drug test, or ask the technician if you had a test at a commercial testing lab to verify whether blood affects the readings. Usually the quality of tests are good enough that the readings stand on their own. ...Read more
