Could Ranitidine 150 mg cause a positive drug screen for methamphetamine?

- methamphetamine, ranitidine
Talked with a local pharmacist here in Atlanta but was told "probably not" - it is important. In fact, there were several other medications that were new to this particular client. Could any of these cause "positive" drug screen for methamphetamine. The others include: Metformin HCL - 1000 mg, Glipizide - 10 mg and lastly, Naproxen - 500 mg.
This is critical for this client's background check, etc.

YES!!! in higher doses such as your 150mg or my 300mg. i just learned that myself after coming up positive for meth at my methadone clinic. i thought they were setting me up until i researched it. hopefully now that i can prove that, i can get back my take-home doses that i lost because of this. and hopefully this helps you. i'm googling "ranitidine false positive methamphetamine" & saving every useful page i can find. GOOD LUCK!!!
