Sustiva and drug testing

Dec 23, 2001

Dr. Cohen, In a recent Q and A you indicated that Sustiva would give a false positive in a test for illegal drugs (marijuana)but if a more specific test were performed, it would show as positive. In terms of a more specific tests, what kind of test or screening do I ask for? Jack

Response from Dr. Cohen

I don't recall the brand of testing - but if this is a concern, you can either speak with a lab director or someone who is ordering tests since this is part of the knowledge that is in the Sustiva information that is enclosed with every bottle that a pharmacist can dispense -called the package insert. Check out one of those or click on the BMS icon on the first page of the Body home page and you should be able to get the details...

Is it time to start up again
