False positive and Trizivir
Sep 7, 2006

I have a client who recently had a baby. The meconium test revealed a positive to THC, opiates, and morphine. My client states she is on Trizivir, 2x's a day. Will Trizivir cause a false positive for THC? (Patient stated she was taking Vicodin and was on a morphine drip due to a C-section...will that explain her positives to opiates and morphine as well?)

Response from Dr. Wohl

No. Sustiva has been associated with false positive tests for pot but this was apparently an issue for older generation tests.

The narcotics will explain positive tests for opiates.


Sustiva Sleep, not.
2nd. Labs what do they mean?
