Can a 16 year old be taking Advil (ibuprofen) PM if they can not sleep?. And would it show positive in a drug test?

Look on the fine : print. Anything that says "pm" on it has diphenhydramine aka Unisom aka Benadryl in it. Yes it can cause false positives. Depends on test brand. It's used in pediatrics for allergic reactions, so it's fair to say the general medical population considers it safe *properly dosed* It is mildly habit-forming, but way less than doxylamine. Don't use combo products. Does she need ibuprofen in Advil PM? ...Read more

Could ibuprofen cause a false positive on a drug test!?

Could ibuprofen cause a false positive on a drug test!?

Mostly for THC: but ONLY on the screening test, and NOT on confirmatory tests. If whoever is doing the testing only uses screening tests, and does not confirm the positive test with more sophisticated methods, they are not following generally recognized principles of drug testing and could be subject to lawsuits. The confirmatory tests can determine that the positive is NOT a substance of abuse. ...Read more

False positive test: "In some cases, a drug test may report the presence of illicit drugs, although none were taken. While this is not common, no test is 100% accurate. Lab errors account for some of the mistakes, but most false-positives may be attributed to over-the-counter drugs and foods that can affect the test" - Ibuprofen and hemp food products have been associated with false positive drug tests. ...Read more

I do not smoke marijuana but failed a drug test. I do take b complex daily and ibuprofin 400mg...

From what ?: Neither vitamins or ibuprofen will make you flunk a drug test.
