what prescription drug shows up as cocaine in a urine drug

Customer Question

Unfortunately, there aren't many drugs that come up as a false-positive for cocaine.

 

These include coca-leaf teas.

Topical anesthetic that contain cocaine (used often for nasal surgery)

 

And certainly if there is a concern that this is a false test -- then the second sample of urine is sent for the confirmatory testing, which is nearly 100% accurate.

Generally no prescription drugs will show up as Cocaine.

There have been cases where certain herbal "coca" tea will yeld a postive cocaine test.
