False positive for benzos?
Date: 2/28/2012
I am on methadone, elavil, gabapentin, along with milk thistle for my liver. Can anyone of these things cause a false positive for benzos? Please help. I have another urine test coming up in March I don’t wanna fail.


AskDocWeb: Elavil may show false positive for opiates for up to three days and may also show positive for LSD and/or methadone. However none of those would show false positive for benzos.

One kidney
Date: 2/28/2012
I have just taken a drug test today and I had a test of a false positive for opiates. I have only one kidney and could possibly have come into contact with lidocaine though intercourse with my wife? Could any of these have affected the results?


AskDocWeb: Contact with lidocaine through intercourse would not affect the test results of a urine drug test for drugs of abuse. However several sources have reported that those with kidney problems have tested false positive for opiates. When in doubt, a confirmation test is required to eliminate false positive test results.

AskDocWeb: Ambien does not show up on a urine drug test for drugs of abuse. The average person takes from 10 to 15 hours to eliminate Ambien from the body.

I’ve just had a hair sample taken for a pre-screening hair follicle drug test in order to be hired for at a company. Since they use a temp-agency to find suitable candidates I also was subject to a UA at my time of application at said agency. In the last two months I was prescribed Mirtazapine (15mg) as a sleep-aid. My question is this: Though I passed the UA without problem, is there a chance Mirtazapine could cause a false positive in my hair results?


AskDocWeb: That seems unlikely, Mirtazapine has not been reported to cause any false positive drug test results for drugs of abuse.

Please someone help me, Let me tell you first I don’t have a credit card so if it takes one I’m sol. HELP I took a drug test yesterday and I am so upset I just wanted to give up. I tested postive for meth and it broke not only my heart but my son as well. I demanded the test to be sent to the lab. I was at my DOCTORS OFFICE when the test was done. I told them what other meds I was taking besides what he gives me. It is a ( FALSE POSTIVE ) PLEASE HELP ME.


AskDocWeb: As you have found out, false positive drug tests can be emotionally devastating for the person being tested and they can also create a great amount of emotional distress for the patient’s family. There are about 50 different substances that can cause a false positive for meth on urine drug tests. These include prescription and over-the-counter meds so you may want to check the big list. Sending the sample to a lab for confirmation is the only way to resolve a false positive.

AskDocWeb: In researching you question we came across a list that is reported to come from the US Navy. We are still searching for documentation on this but it looks like people are getting false positive results for methamphetamine when using the following identifiers and supplements.

Identifiers: Methylhexaneamine, Methylhexanamine, Geranamine, Geranium Oil, Geranium Oil Extract, DMAA, Forthane, Forthan, Floradrene, 4-methyl-2-hexanamine, 4-methylhexan-2-amine.

Product list with Distributor in parentheses:

If readers find a link to a Navy site about this, please post it.

Update: According to a page on the Air Force’s Sheppard AFB website, the following ingredients are banned for those subject to drug testing. Note that these are just ingredients, so any supplement that contains them is illegal.

Note that this is a partial list. the complete list contains about 10 times the number of ingredients listed here. If anyone has the full list, please post it.
