I was recently drug tested and I take Propoxyphene and the test came back positive for both propoxyphene and methadone.. I did not take the methadone and I know that Propoxyphene can cause a fasle positive for methadone. I need to find paperwork stating that to bring to my doctor becasuse he wont look it up. Anyone know the sites??
Drug tests r hideously inaccurate but a pharmacist will know the answer to ur query. Call ur doctor and ask to have the sample<or a new one sent to a lab for processing and offer blood and hair as back up proof. Member ChristineATU has posted a link that discusses false positives on UA's. Friend her and ask her privately. she is very helpful and i know she will answer u if she c's this or u ask her.
Ur-Ine Trouble is the name of the book. There are also other studies. I will try to post as much as I can. I can't figure out how to send the entire Link.
