Will a testosterone booster supplement that is sold on bodybuilding.Com or GNC alert on a steroid drug test or urine drug test?

Who knows?: Since no one knows what's in those "supplements", there's no way to tell. However, they won't "boost" you testosterone or anything else, other than boosting the $$ out of your wallet and into their pocket. Don't get your medical info from tv or the internet. Avoid the supplements and save your money and your health. ...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.

Could maga-green t supplements cause a drug test to be positive or taking basic vitamins?

Could maga-green t supplements cause a drug test to be positive or taking basic vitamins?

Mega T Green Tea: Unless the drug test is looking for caffeine (which is in these supplements) along with other substances usually checked for, it's unlikely to be positive.

Will mega-T green tea supplements cause a drug test to be positive?

Will mega-T green tea supplements cause a drug test to be positive?

Not that I know of: unless they are testing for caffeine, which would rarely, if ever, be done. However, the label says that the ingredients are "proprietary" which means they don't have to tell you everything that is in it. However, I have never seen any reports of false positives secondary to any kind of tea. In any case, false positives on screening tests can be ruled out with confirmatory tests. ...Read more
