Customer Question

Hello I tested positive at work for Benzoylecgonine and Tamoxifen. I take adderall. I need advice on how to respond when I meet with my boss in a few days. Trying to save my job. Can anything else trigger cocaine or am I screwed?

Can adderall or could any other supplements drugs beside cocaine lead to this showing up in my system?
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.

Hello

There are no false positives if they did confirmatory testing.

These other drugs will now show positive for cocaine if the test was done correctly.

Find out if they did confirmatory testing.

If they did not, they can not report this validly.

If they did, then it would have to be mixed up samples if you did not do coccaine.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

They tested 2 diluted samples. I was originally told the PH levels were too low to test. Can taking extasy create a positive test for cocaine
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 1 year ago.

HI

No

If they sent a second sample there would be no false positive.

Either it would have to be lab error or mixed up samples.
