HIV+ pre-employment drug screening
Jan 17, 2005

I am on a regiment of combivir and sustiva and have heard that the sustiva can give a false positive for marijauna (THC). How do I get past this without disclosing that I am HIV+? Catch 22?

Response from Dr. Henry

I offer to write a note (non-specific) for patients stating that they are on a drug known to cause false positive tests for marijuana (variably). KH

in response to rapid HIV
Viread and Sustiva interaction
