I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Penicillin derived antibiotics like Ampicillin and Amoxicillin are reported to test false positive for cocaine.Local anaesthetics containing cocaine can test positive , very rarely certain chronic liver and renal diseases can also cause false positive tests for cocaine in the urine . In all other cases it will usually be cocaine testing positive for cocaine.
