Systiva and drug tests

Nov 19, 2003

Dr Young, I recently started on Systiva and epivir and videx, about ten days after starting I had a drug test at work and was wondering what are the chances of me popping pos with any of these drugs????

Response from Dr. Young

I'm assuming that you're talking about a positive urine drug test..

There are sporadic cases of persons who have had positive urine toxicology tests while taking efavirenz (Sustiva, Stocrin). Provided that you have a prescription for efavirenz, this shouldn't be a problem if your one of these very unusual persons. BY
