Will ibuprofen show up drug test?

maybe: It will show up only if they do a specific test looking for it. It is not the typical drug of abuse that is looked for. ...Read more

Nope: Drinking coca tea or chewing coca leaves can produce metabolites that could cause a false positive DOA screening test. Not ibuprofen. ...Read more

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

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

Drug Test: Drug tests are more specific and sensitive than ever. The reliability of these tests are better each year. Rest assured, the test will tell what is in your urine, as well as tell us what is not. ...Read more

Diet pills: If your diet pills contain stimulants (are controlled substances), then yes, it will appear on most urine drug tests. If you are in the US, and the diet pills are prescribed and you must sign for them, then it is likely that they do contain a controlled substance. ...Read more
