I swear on my kids lives that I have NEVER taken meds that were not prescribed to me and Morphine showed up. I'm being dismissed by my doc because of this. I'm mortified!! Please let me know if you have any idea how this could happen.
There are many substances that can show positive for morphine other than morphine itself. If you have taken any allergy medicine like Dimetapp (loratadine) it will cause a false positive. For a complete list I recommend the site www.askdocweb.com/falsepositive.html It gives a thorough list of medicines that can do this.
March yourself back to your doc's office and demand a hair follicle test, or a blood test! I'm no expert re: drug tests, but I would make a ruckus if I had a false positive!! Print this out, what you've written here, and take it to your doctor and put it in his hands.
The squeaky wheel gets the grease!! Make them listen to you.
Codiene metabolizes into morphine. Have you taken any cough syrup with codeine in it? Poppy seeds used to but I believe that they adjusted the testing parameters to fix that. If you have taken anything with codeine though it will show morphine for sure!
I had similar experience with my doc in Texas, I had been sick a n taking cough syrup. had to pay for hair test and it was resolved. Good luck

They talked about disc hard me I have taken pain meds for 12 yrs. please give your input. I was not trying to jeopardize my current pain mgmt help!!!
