i recently took a drug test for a job and it came back positive but i dont use drugs, someone says that it came positive because of sustiva, why is that

Response from Dr. Henry

Sustiva can cause false + tests for marijuana with some of the drug tests kits on the market. It is due to a chemical reaction caused by Sustiva that was originally noted in HIV- persons taking Sustiva and having drug tests done. Your HIV doc can write a letter stating that the + test result was likely due to the Sustiva.
