Hi,

Also are you on any other medications, even supplements or OTC medications?

I have been called to the ICU so i will opt out and let another expert answer this question for you. Sorry for the inconvienience but a patient has gone critical. Do not reply to this as that will lock the question back to me.

Creatinine is normally present in urine and you are tested positive for codeine because you are taking oxycortin(oxycodone) and tramadol. Oxycodone has variable cross-reactivity with different opiate-screening assays. So tramadol and oxycodone are the drugs giving false positive for codeine in your urine sample.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much for taking your time to explain my test results. I was quite nervous at first because I hadn't taken any codeine that I was aware of. Your expertise allows me to have peace of mind and for that I am grateful. Sincerely Donna

My pleasure to help you Donna.

Wish you good health.
