Response from Ms. Breuer

It's very unlikely that your HIV medications would show up in a pre-employment drug test. I recommend that you talk with the doctor who prescribes your medications and ask this question: would any of my medications cause me to fail a pre-employment drug test? If your doctor says yes, ask for a note to give the tester before you get tested. The note should only say that you might get a false positive because of medication, not give your diagnosis.
