So many companies rely upon these labs to have fool proof methods of detecting drugs. I truly feel bad about your job. Please do not do anything rash, ok? You CAN fight this! I copied this excerpt for you that may help. Please read the following and fight this test! Maybe you can have a hair follicle test done? It will show all medications and/or drugs (illicit or not) in your system over the past 3 months. It is much more accurate then the standard urinalysis. Please hang in there and truly, I sympathize with you.
"Laboratory slip-ups are to blame for many of the mistaken test results. But even perfect labs running perfect tests will also find many false positives."
False positives are caused by:
Nasal decongestants such as Dristan, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, and Sudafed, which cause false positives for amphetamines.
Poppy seeds like those on a dinner roll, which cause false positives for opiates. Even the highest-quality test currently available, the GCMS test, still confuses poppy seeds with heroin.
Pain relievers such as Advil, Nuprin, Midol, Trendar, or any medicine containing Ibuprofin cause false positives for marijuana.
Antibiotics such as amoxicillin or ampicillin cause false positives for cocaine.
The above list is only a beginning. Most substances which people have in their blood have never been tested to see if they cause false positives. Indeed, even some natural body enzymes cause false positives. According to research validated by the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, melanin, the natural pigment which makes skin dark, can cause false positives for marijuana.
