atripla false posititve on drug test
Jan 15, 2012

I have read that atripla can cause a false positive reading on a urine drug test. I was wondering if it can do the same thing on a saliva drug test.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

You refer to old drug tests that would misread efavirenz as marijuana. As far as I know, current drug testing does not confuse these two.
