If this was a screening test that was positive for cocaine, then it could be a false positive, because screening tests have a certain rate of false positives, even i people that are not taking any other medicines.

However, if this was a confirmatory test that was positive for cocaine, then it could not be a false positive because of phentermine or any other drug that you are taking. If this was a confirmatory test, then it may be that someone spiked something without your knowledge.

If this was a screening test, then you should request that a confirmatory test be done.
