cortisol test: meds cause false positive?
Jul 30, 2004
I had a cortisol test and came back normal. Meds I take: premarin, actos, glucovance, zocor, linospril, and zoloft . could the meds I take cause a false positive on the cortisol test? I seem to have a lot of cushings symptoms

The medicines you are taking should not interfere with any tests involving cortisol levels.
