atripla and THC positive reading
Dec 12, 2007

I am on parole and just had a urine test. It first test came back positive for Marijuana. If they send this to a lab to have it tested, will it come back as atripla or marijuana? My freedom rides on this.

Response from Dr. Henry

It is my understanding that urine tests generally don't distinguish efavirenz as a chemical separate from THC/marijuana. In situations like that it is best to get a letter from your physician describing that you are taking a necessary prescription drug known to cause a positive urine THC test. If any reader has any more specific informatation on the subject please post. KH
