opiate false positive
Nov 1, 2005
I work in the substance abuse field - primarily w/ gay men. I know using Sustiva can result in a false positive for THC - but what other HIV meds can result in false positives for what other drugs? For example, I have client who has just tested positive for opiates. We are very non-punitive when clients test positive and I tend to believe this client in particular. But the only meds he is on are HIV meds.

Thanks for your post.
I'm not aware of any antiretroviral medications that would lead to a false-positive opiate (or other) test. BY
