Kidney Infection (kidney disease)

Unfortunately, there are many medications that can cause a false positive drug screen result. Many of them are over the counter medications that we use every day, and have cost alot of people their jobs.

I am giving you a couple of websites for prescription and non-prescription medications in case you would like more information.
Good Luck to You.
