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.

hi, now if you would have put that extra info the first time ,you were just a bit ambiguous on the original question. ask and say what you mean.if you answered as many questions as i have you would be a tad bitter. its tuff seeing all these hoped up wack'os i just want this web site to be a place where you can go for help. my bad,ment no disrespect... and i wana apologize to all the people who had to read all them nasty words...

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.

"sorry"

why argue over a months old question? Subzero, there are some antibiotics that MAY cause a false positive. I read a very detailed article published from a reliable source who's been studying this "False Positive" issue for many years. But the poster need not resort to name calling either. If he's still around. It's as reliable as a lie detector test. That's why they can't be used in Court. Because it's only 98% accurate. So there are a few (very few) who MAY get a false positive. Even birth control. 99% effective yet everyone believes it could never happen to them, all of a sudden your planning a baby shower!

@SubZero I.Q. Stop being so presumptuous, and your Freudian projecting isn't funny-it's self revealing.
