Some prescriptions do alter the results of a drug test, however, when you take the drug test there is a place to list what medications you are on. Be sure to list albuterol on that page! If the results would come up positive, it would probably fall within the range of albuteral, the dose you are taking and the amount of times you use it. Listing the albuteral inhaler and any other medications you may be taking will help to explain any false positive readings in your test result.
