I have tried to find which of the drugs indicated would be cause a false positive:

Of the drugs mentioned, it seems only Carbamazepine may have a false positive that is to say that this drug may cause to say that he is on cocaine while he only taking carbamazepine.

Please note that different tests may have different false positive drugs.
Hope this helped.
