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

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.
