Customer Question
I tested positive for...

I tested positive for cocaine on a drug screening. I don't do any illegal drugs at all. Never have. I take fiorcet for migraines & had 4% Citanest with dental work two days before my drug test. The test isn't showing positive for forget at all but positive for cocaine. What could be causing this false positive ?

Doctor's Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?

Not daily and feel nauseated at times

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I take over the counter sinus meds & antihistamines. Just suffer from chronic migraines & sinus/allergy problems

Ampicillin.
Coca tea, Coca leaf, Coca flour, Coca oil can also cause a false positive cocaine test.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
