I just asked u a question about cold medications and amoxicillian possibly causing a positive reaction on a drug screen for my company. I got your response but how do I know the company will request more detailed testing? What are the chances in numbers of a positive response? Have you ever heard of a positive response on the medications I listed before?

OK

I've never seen a false positive with the medications you listed

But nowadays it's standard company practice--or rather the practice of the Medical Review Officer for the lab--to send any positive findings on to the MS/GC test to see if it's a true positive

The company is sending urine sample out to a lab. Accredited I hope. You've reassured me a bit but am still concerned.

I understand

But I wouldn't tell you you'd pass if I wasn't 100% certain
