The first test I was positive on was last monday, March 5th. I didnt believe it so I asked for a second. Same result. Then I bought a take home test on the way home with the same result. I've seen all the common things that may cause a false positive, but nothing crosses with anything I take. I have taken ranitidine for excess stomach acid, regular tylenol, oxycodone(with a prescription). Thats all the medicines I have taken. I dont drink regularly, but had several Vodka and tonics 2 days ago. I stopped drinknin coffee last week to see if that was the culprit, but I came up positive again tonight. I drink a lot of sprite also. Any ideas?
I just now saw your question. I am thinking outside the box a bit, but I know that people mainly smoke meth indoors because there can't be wind or a breeze. I also know that people use public and work restrooms to smoke meth. Furthermore, the smoke from meth has a very faint odor so it is often unnoticed by smell. The smoke also dissipates in color or clarity quickly so it is often unnoticed visually.
Perhaps it's possible that you have been present in a public place (like a restroom or small office space/house) where someone either was or had smoked meth and you inhaled it without realizing it (how would you ever even know). I don't know how much it takes to test positive, but regardless, you may have had contact with it repeatedly or on a regular bases for an unknown amount of time.
Just food for thought. I hope everything works out for you.
Ranitidine 150 mg or more will cause a false positive! they will need to run a EMIT test to see that it is a over the counter drug!
