Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

the aleve you are taking can cause false positive for marijuana on testing

here is a medical article which talks about it

you can see on table 1 that ibuprofen and naproxen can cause false positives for cannabanoids.

but after MS/GC confirmatory testing, this should show that you are not using marijuana

let me know if you have questions.

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.
