I haven’t personally. But I have heard that certain over the counter medications can cause a false positive. Hope that helps.

According to a news report from the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive drug test results in the most widely administered urine drug test procedure. Ronald Siegel, a psychopharmacologist at UCLA said ‘The widespread testing and reliance on tell-tale traces of drugs in the urine is simply a panic reaction invoked because the normal techniques for controlling drug use haven’t worked very well. The next epidemic will be testing abuse.” Currently there are more than 250 over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs that can cause false positives

Over-the-counter NSAIDS: lbuprofen; Advil, Nuprin, Mediprim, Motrin, Bayer Select Pain Relief Formula, Excedrin IB Caplets, Genpril, Haltran, lbuprin, Midol 200, Pamprin, Trendar Cramp Relief Formula, Cramp End Tablets, Medipren, Rufln, Naproxen, Aleve, Ketoprofen, Orudis KT. Prescription NSAIDS: Anaprox, Tolectin, ifenoprofen, flurbiprofen, oxaprozin, Ansaid, Clinoril, Dolobid, Feldene, Indocin, Lodine, Meclomen, Motrin, Nalfon, Naprosyn, Orudis, Relafen, Voltaren. Over-the-counter allergy preparations, sleep aids and antinausea medications that contain promethazine: Phenergan, Promethegan. Riboflavin (vitamin B2), Dronabinol, Edecrin

no but a friend of mine tested positive for opiates while he was on probation I don’t know exactly what drugs would show up as opiates but he hadn’t done any and I know him well enough to know this, I guess he and his girlfriend had gotten some muffins with a lot of poppy seeds on them and that was enough to do the trick

If u have lost a job bcuz of it, u may need a lawyer. Yes, if the lab has poor practices or someone is careless, they can mix them up. Also if the tester didn’t label it in front of u.

No, have you?

yes – eating poppy seed cake before a test will give you a bad test

    If you eat anything with poppy seeds, you can get a false positive for opiates, also if you have been around anyone smoking pot, it could be in your system as THC, which lingers in the system sometimes for months, its called a contact high.

    I know there are medications out there that will show up on a drug test as something else.. I’m not what they’re called tho. My friends dad had the same thing happen to him.. He was applying for a new job and didn’t get it because his medications showed up on his drug test as something else. I know he takes alot of medications for his heart, but definately doesn’t do drugs.

    Certain prescription and over the counter drugs can cause false positives for some drugs. If you gave the tester a record of drugs you’ve taken recently and your prescriptions, they’ll factor these into the results.
