Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

It is hard to tell where the Benzoylecgonine came from on the drug test.

Unfortunately there are a few medications which can yield false positives for it such as:

  • Amoxicillin
  • Topical anesthetics derived from cocaine
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Diabetes

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
