Taking Atripla
Sep 1, 2010

I am on Probation, and I take Atripla, and I got tested Friday, and Monday my probation Officer called me and told me that I tested positive for marijuana, Is this possible? He's sending the specimen to the main lab to get it retested. Should I be worried? I've been clean from drugs for two years.

Response from Dr. Henry

Atripla is well known to result in false positive drug tests for marijuna-need note from your physician documenting that situation. KH
