https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24138673

is an article about false positive for benzoylecgonine metaboliate for cocaine for urine tox screening

more sensitive and specific analytical technique can be used to look for benzoylecgonine which is the metabolite for cocaine

MS/GC confirmatory testing need to be done after screening testing to confirm your testing.

your 5 panel drug screening test is still a screening test and could be wrong

that is why a confirmatory test is needed

let me know if you have questions.

Can amoxicillin cause a false positive?
Health Professional: Dr. David, Doctor (MD) replied 7 months ago

this has been tested

amoxicillin most likely would not cause a false cocaine positive result

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18430300

is an article about this

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
