drug testing and my meds
Jun 14, 2004

I am schedulaed to have a drug screen test for my job at a hospital next week. I am currently taking Kaletra, Videx, and Ziagen. Will these meds affect the reults?

Response from Ms. Breuer

From what I know about these particular meds, the answer is no. But double check with a pharmacist. If s/he does indicate the possibility of a reaction, ask for the name of a comparable test that doesn't react with your meds.
