YES ! Lamictal can make drug test positive for PCP. Make sure you tell them or whoever you need to about being on Lamictal. Have a lab use a maspectrometer specifically for a PCP scan to officially rule a false positive.I had to do the same thing,tell them before I took the test was prescription drugs I was taking.

Dextromethorphan, an ingredient in Nyquil, can also! Happened to me.

It also happened to me! I take effexor and was horrified when the Dr. said I was posative for PCP! I went straight to the ER and got another drug screen that was negative! Im unsure why this happened but its awful when it happens to you!
