Im on medications like diane 35, finasteride and aldactone (spironolactone). I have to take a 24 hour urine cortisol test. Will my medications affect the test result?

In brief: Cortisol test

It would be best to have the 24 hour urine without the drugs for one day but before you do that you must check with your doctor. It is not very likely that the meds will interfere with the lab but why take the chance before discussing with your doctor.
