Can or does benzocaine show up as false positive for cocaine in drug tests?

It shouldn't have. If you test positive for something you did not take, always request taking a second test from a different batch of drug tests. Drug tests are not infallible and if one is bad from one batch, then others in the batch may also have the same error. If you still test positive, offer to have your hair analyzed.

Thank you. Very nice. No one is testing positive here. Just needed to know if a product containing benzocaine could be misread. Hope you are right.

Hey 13th Warrior:
So you know, benzocaine didn't show up as cocaine in my friend's test. Hope this helps you. Good luck with Big Brother and the other quasi-fascists that intrude daily on our freedoms and liberty.

Thank you to 1st respondant. Very nice. Get bent to the 2nd & 3rd. Not an "excuse", you effing jumping to conclusion dipsh*ts. Merely a question for a friend who had a toothache, used Orajel, and had to take a test soon thereafter for work. Take your false positive judgmental BS and put it in a bad bad place. F U.

I too apologize for my shorthand profanities (at least I used shorthand). But you jumped to an erroneous conclusion and I had to bust you. This is a touchy situation with A LOT on the line. So I and my friend are a bit tense. Understandable? Should be. Stick to answering questions forthrightly and leave the judgments to God. We are fallible. Him? Not so much.
