Help with false positive

  1. Recently went in for a random drug screen and it came back positve for propoxyphene (Darvocet) I have never taken them before and do not use any other medicines. Since the screen I have heard of this coming up as false. Can anyone out there please help me with any other instances or types of foods that could have possibly caused this? I can't believe this is happening.

    I have no idea what it could be. Request to have the test over again. Or request to have blood work done, I don't know if that would help. I am sorry this is happening to you, it must be an awful feeling. I didn't know drug screens were so specific that it can tell you exactly what drug you took, darvocet. Interesting. I thought it would just say opiods. I have heard eating poppy seeds can cause some kind of false positive. Anyone else know?

    Poppy seeds can make you test positive for opium but I'm not a hundred percent sure on that one.
