Drug testing & false positive's

Jun 6, 2011

Couldn't really find a catagory for this question so I'll ask here. Company I work for does random drug testing and I'm worried the the ARV's i'm on might cause a false positive on a drug test. I've heard some of them do. I currently take Truvada & Reyataz. Can I find out if these Meds can cause a false positive on a drug test?

Response from Dr. Frascino


No worries mate. Neither Truvada nor Reyataz will cause a false-positive drug-screening test.

Dr. Bob

Should I go for a test
can you say "conflicting advise"
