I pray he dont i have been getting my life back together for me my wife and infant daughter. I need some encouragement i go back to see him in the morning and i havent stopped shaking since i faile the urine screen. i feel like the guy in prison that is ACTUALLY innocent. please help...
the only person I know on this site who has had a similar thing happen thinks the phenergan she takes may be causing her to show positive for opiates she isn't taking. There are a few other possibilities, are you diabetic or have a metabolism (thyroid) condition. Test kits or strips can be bad and if a person does not read the test at eye level, it may seem like it is giving a positive result. If you ever have this happen agin, please ask for another test, for it to be mailed to a lab or ask for bloodwork instead of urine. You do know that methadone and benzos can show for weeks after the last dose, right. If you have taken either in the last 6 weeks, that may have produced the positive. I know this is discouraging to have this happen, but hang in there. It sounds like your doctor still wants to treat you, so that is good. The test kits do get shipped in big hot trucks and some are bad, just hang in there.
If you have a positive strip test, you can ask for confirmation by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (or GC-MS) test. These tests are VERY accurate but VERY expensive. You may have to pay out of pocket for the test but it could be well worth it in some instances. Any positives, really, should be confirmed this way especially if action of some kind will be taken in regards to the urine sample, like discharging a patient from practice. There can be many causes for false positives but GC-MS will confirm whether it is truly a false positive or if it is a true positive.
