I'm confused i dont do drugs im a diabetic taking linsopril metformin glipizide simvastin i rencently failed a drug test at work saying i tested positive for cocaine the only caine product im taking is lidocaine patch for pain and benzocaine for tooth ache
There are many false positives for all different drugs. Lidocaine and benzocaine are topical ointments much like ben-gay. I highly doubt it would show positive for cocaine as it shouldn't enter your bloodstream. Be sure and let them know all medications (even OTC meds) you have taken within the past 30 days. This is a new one for me. Never heard of that happening. But it may be the testing kits too. Many of the reagents they use have a certain shelf life and some labs don't replace them when needed.
Good luck to you and keep us posted,
