Hello

Ranitidine will not cause a false positive for methamphetamine.

If it did, the second phase of testing, called GC/MS identifies the exact substance.

They always do this for positives, if not, they don't have a valid test.

OK, so that is an initial answer….

Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
