I was just had a urine test testing. Test was inconclusive.

Customer Question

I was just had a urine test for drug testing. Test was inconclusive. They told me they would have to send out for further testing. I am on the perscription pantaprozal. Will this give a false read? I have heard it will. I have been on this for 3 years. I do not do any type of drugs.

This is Dr. David

are you taking pantoprazole? this is to decrease stomach acid

this usually doesn't cause inconclusive urine drug screening tests

did you drink a lot of water prior to the urine tests? this can often cause too dilute urine and can cause inconclusive tests.
