Will Nyquil Affect A Drug Test
If I take 30 mL of NyQuil the day before my 5 panel drug test, could it give a false negative on the test?
False neg for what?: Most people are not usually concerned about false negative results. The exception being the people who are prescribed a medication and rather than taking it, are selling it on the street. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I just took 60ml of NyQuil. I'm very nervous it's going to show up on my urine drug test tomorrow by 2pm. Do I get another test if I fail?
Not sure: Not sure why you need a drug test but this only has dextromethorphan, acetaminophen, and doxylamine. These are not restricted products and while they may be in urine should not show any red flags that I am aware of.It depends on why you are having the test as to whether you get another.

Positive for what?: What did you test positive for? Was it a screening test or was it followed by a confirmatory test. Screening tests may have false positive result. ...Read more
It depends,,: It depends on what you're being tested for and how much benedryl you took. Apparently it may cause a false positive result for Methadone in some urine drug screens using competitive binding immunoassays, and if too much is taken, it can cause blurry vision, photophobia, heart failure, and death, but a lot has to be taken. Otherwise, there should not be much of a problem. Good luck. ...Read more
Yes, depending on : When testing is done relative to when it was taken. However, "drug screens" are read as positive by the concentration of a drug or its metabolite in the urine sample; therefore, depending on timing, the concentration may fall below the cut-off point for a "positive" screen. It isn't a problem for anyone who can show a prescription bottle in his or her name. Diversion is a different story. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
