If you have been asked to undertake a marijuana drug test, this piece of information on medications and prescription drugs triggering a false positive drug test would surely be useful to you.
Before we read any further, it is important for you to note that some medications and prescription drugs could lead to positive marijuana drug tests and therefore you should have a clear and complete understanding of which all drugs could give you a positive test.
Ibuprofen is one of the common drugs that can lead to a positive marijuana drug test. Advil, Aleve, Anaprox, Ansaid, Apo-Naproxen, Atripla, B2 Vitamin, Bayer Select Pain Relief Formula, Clinoril, Cramp End Tablets, Datril, Dolobid, Dronabinol (Marinol), and Edecrin are some other medications and prescription drugs that could indicate a positive marijuana test.
Some of the other medications and prescription drugs that may lead to a positive marijuana test are Efavirenz, Excedrin IB, Feldene, Fenoprofin, Flurbiprofen, Genpril, Haltran, Hempseed Oil, Ibuprin, Indocin, Lisuride/Dopergin® Liver Disease, Lodine, Marinol®, Meclomen, Mediprim, Medipren, Midol, Motrin, Nalfon, Naprosyn, Naproxen (Aleve), Navonaprox, NSAIDS, Nuprin, Orudis KT, Oxaprozin, Pamprin®, and PanToprazole.
Other drugs and medications including Phenergan®, Promethazine, Promethegan, ProTon Pump InhibiTors, ProTonix, Riboflavin, Relafen, Rufin, Shampoo containing hemp, Sustiva (Efanirenz), Tolectin®, Trendar Cramp Relief Formula, and Voltaren may also lead to positive marijuana tests.
If you fail a drug test due to any of these medications or prescription drugs, you could straightaway inform the marijuana drug testing authorities about usage of the same. It is always recommended that you disclose this fact before testing so that a positive drug test does not happen to you in the first place. If you have already received a failed marijuana test because of use of any of these medications or prescription drugs, you should immediately request a different type of drug test while emphasizing your innocence. Remember, your confidence could make all the difference and you should defend yourself if wrongly accused.
If the testing authorities are satisfied with your confidence, they would ask you to give a new test after a few days. Before the second test day, you need to avoid fatty acids, sugars, energy drinks, toxins, and stay out of toxic environments. You should also arrange for a prescription and letter from your medical practitioner that authorizes you to use drugs mentioned above. In addition to that, you should consume 6-16 oz glasses of water all long every day but avoid consuming all at once.
