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.

Can a 16 year old be taking Advil 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.
