Can ecstasy hinder HIV test results ?
      #96847 - 04/28/04 03:31 PM

Hi there. I was just wondering if taking drugs like ecstasy or cocaine a few weeks before testing can affect the results in any way ? Also, I read somewhere that ecstasy use lowers the immune system, so could this cause any problems when testing ?

HIV tests are very specific. Whether they are looking for the viral particles or antibodies, they are specific to detect whether you are infected or not. Thus such drugs will not hinder your testing.
