I had a false positive and the only things I take are Bontril, Flexeril, Zantac, and Donnatol.

Hello from JustAnswer.

Actually, the Donnatal contains a barbiturate, specifically phenobarbital. So, if you had a positive result while taking this list of medicines, it would not be a false positive. It is a true positive from the Donnatal.

When someone has a legal prescription for Donnatal, there would typically not be an issue with a positive UDS for barbiturates, although documentation of the legal prescription may need to be provided.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
