Customer Question

I am expecting to get a drug test and I freak out since y husband tested false positive from a Hungarian poppy seed cake he ate the night before testing
We had no idea we are not "drug educated " and need to know what foods to avoid or what pills to avoid to not test false positive
The drug that I take for pcos everyday is Metformin. Do I need to stop that?
Thanks

GreetingsNo. You don't have to worry about this. Opium and poppy seeds are extracted fro the same plant and some poppy seed are still contaminated with opium and that's what they give false positive drug test. Poppy seeds is just about the only one that would give false positive drug test. Metformin id not a problem. If you are not using drugs, you should not worry about the test. Best wishes
