Drug Testing

  1. 0
    I went to take my drug test today. I don't do drugs at all. However, when I got home, I realized that I had used FDS woman deodorant spray. It did not dawn on me not to use it because I use it all the time. Im worried now that my sample will come up positive for drugs. Has anyone had this happen to them? .............

    Why would that show up positive for drugs? I think you're worrying for nothing.

    I was worried bcause of chemicals used in aerosols and not knowing what was actually in FDS feminine spray and how it would affect my drug test. (just finished taking microbiology, im nervous about everything now lol).

    I know exactly how you feel-I'm paranoid about eating lots of spicy Indian food before my drug test! Really, I have been worrying like crazy over it and I don't take any meds/drugs etc. Can't certain foods and supplements give false positivies? My school says no questions asked, you are out if this test comes back positive.

    My bf got a false positive for pcp recently for a drug test but none of the presecription drugs that he does take showed up - this test was also for his nursing school. What probably happened is that his prescriptions came up as PCP....so yeah, anything chemical that you take into you body can cause a false positive. Let's not mention if the lab or delivery system is faulty.

    A common ingredient in OTC cough and cold medicines like Robitussin is dextromethorphan can come back as PCP. I've seen it happen a couple of times.
