I take a bunch of herbals and vitamins
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

Ok, thanks for your response.

Some SSRI (antidepressants) can cause a false positive due to the breakdown products of the medication. This means that the test came back positive but you were not on the listed medication that the drug test was positive for.

Does that make sense?

The antidepressant that commonly causes a false-positive for tramadol is venlafaxine (Effexor)

You can check with the lab that did the drug test to see if they did a confirmatory test to check that test was done with gas chromography instead of the more common immunoassay tests.

Here's a link to a research article that talks about it here

I used to take Effexor a long time ago . I had Alieve in a pill container along with neurontin , Zoloft , Effexor and Paxil n may have taken it by accident . I'm having a confirmatory test . Will that differentiate between the 2 medications
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 11 months ago

it should. so only take the paxil and be sure not to keep any old prescriptions around if you are no longer taking those medicines to prevent any confusion in the future.
