PK :

Hello

PK :

Welcome to just answer.

Customer:

Good Morning,

PK :

I am here to answer you ...

PK :

Good morning .

PK :

Are you being tested for ibuprofen ?

PK :

I want you to know that ibuprofen is an over the counter drus and they do not test for this drug on a drug screening test as it is legal to take this drug .

PK :

Thus you should just tell the authorities that you did take ibuprofen and it will not be a problem at all .

PK :

I hope you are getting my point ?

PK :

Please reply ....

Customer:

My daughter got hurt at work and went to the emergency room. They told her to take 4 200mg of Ibuprofen. So she did that morning. Her manager took her for a drug test to make sure she was not on drugs when this happened. The test came out postitive. We are a little confused.

PK :

Ibuprofeb can at times cause a false positive on an immuno assay screening test .

PK :

Thus she needs to let them know that she was on ibuprofen .

PK :

There are further tests that can then be conducted and the false positives can be eliminated .

PK :

She needs to let them know that she had taken the ibuprofen .

PK :

As ibuprofen can cause a false positive for marijuana.

Customer:

she did and they said it would not make a difference. She is fighting this. What should she do.

PK :

Has she been on any drugs ?

Customer:

No,

Customer:

Just the ibuprofen as the doctor told her to do.

PK :

Well then there is no reason for her to get into trouble for this

PK :

She should ask them to do a further testing which will prove that it is a false positive .

PK :

You need to talk to them about it and reason it out as you have a valid case.

PK :

Ibuprofen is known to give a false positive and I am sure the testing authorities are aware of that

PK :

You should show them the prescription as a proof for the same.

PK :

You there ?

Customer:

They told that they could send it to a third party. I thought I would referecne that this could case a false positive results.

PK :

There are tests used that can now eliminate the false positives ...so thus you should tell them that they can send it to a third party with a note informing them that she has been on ibuprofen so that they can then test so as to exclude the false positive .

PK :

You can also attach a proof of your prescription that will further substantiate that she was on ibuprofen

PK :

This is a common false positive .

Customer:

This is over the counter ibuprofen.

PK :

Yes it is over the counter so it is legal .

PK :

The false positives it causes for marijuana are known

PK :

Thus they need to do the tests that will eliminate the false positive and that is what you need to ask them to do .

Customer:

Thank You very much for your help. How can I get back in touch with you if needed.

PK :

You can ask for physician 123.

PK :

I will be glad to help you .

PK :

I wish you and your daughter all the best

PK :

Take care and god bless..

PK :
