I was hospitalized with a moderate case of shingles amd was given valtrax, gabapentin, protinics and I also take celexa, tylonal and methodone for pain. I also have used every cream and lotion created to numb this terible pain from the shingles. Now I test positive for cocaine ! What could I have taken or rubbed on to give a cocaine urine ? I was highly embarrased by this ! The gabapenin does nothing at all for pain so if that causes the false psitive it won,t bother me to discontinue it.
Did you use anything with lidocaine? Sometimes that can give a false positive for cocaine. Shingles is terrible pain. I hope you are feeling better now.
