When getting a annual physical does the blood work include a drug test, and does the physical require a urine sample? I'm worried about false positive

When getting a annual physical does the blood work include a drug test, and does the physical require a urine sample? I'm worried about false positive

It does not: You can only be tested for drugs of abuse with your consent. Your physician doing your routine history and physical will not screen you for recreational substances. False-positive drug-of-abuse tests that have medicolegal consequences are very uncommon as the results must be verified by a test using a different chemical principle. And even if you're actually using, your physician is your friend. ...Read more

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.

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)

I see no other evidence or reason why chia seeds should cause a false positive test. ...Read more

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

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
