Yes i am 100 percent sure that zantac can test positive for meth on a urine test. I recently was put on supervised probation, and was on this prescription for stomach issues. When i tested my probation officer said i was positive for meth. I knew that i had never touched the drug, and did some research. Zantac is not a methamphetamine but WILL test positive.
It is very unlikely for one drug to cause a false positive on a drug screen for any other substance. Drug screens test for metabolites of specific drugs. All drug tests have a rating based on specificity and sensitivity. The higher the sensitivity, the lower the specificity. Basically it is only possible to have a false positive by using another drug that is very chemically similar to the positive test. These drugs are not chemically similar.
what ingredent in zantac will cause me to test positive for meth
No, Zantac (ranitidine) is a histamine 2 blocker. Meth is short for methylenedioxymethamphetamine. Zantac will not cause a positive test for amphetamines.
YES! It happened to me today!
No, it can't.
No, there is no way possible to fail a drug test for meth. We jsut came out with a new test and we are working on ones for other common types of drugs. - - - - - Don't listen to that guy. Zantac (ranitidine) WILL GIVE A FALSE POSITIVE ON A DIP STICK METH TEST. US Drug Testing and the University of California at Santa Barbara both confirm that Zantac will cross-react with the meth instant test. It's the only drug that cross-reacts that isn't some form of amphetamine. Those dip-stick tests are screening tests; anything that comes up hot is supposed to be sent out for GC/MS confirmation. When you put this in a GC/MS machine it will show up as Zantac and you'll be okay.
i take zantac 75 and recently took a drug test and tested positive for meth, i have never done meth nor do i want to....Look ,I absolutely know that zantac will cause a false positive for meth! I just failed a drug screen,but if you do so on a "field test" you should require a lab analysis. The enzyme multiple immunoassay test (EMIT) are used and relied on even though the list of everyday OTC meds that can cause false + results are staggering. Watch Yourself!I looked on many websites, and they all said that Zantac will cause a false positive for methamphetamine and amphetamine Check them out, they're interesting: informedcenter.comxpressdrugtest.comdruginfonet.com
It did, once, for me.
It shouldn't do. Zantac is in no way chemically similar to meth.
There is no cold medication that shows up as Meth on a drug test. Sudafed is used in the manufacture of Meth, but taking Sudafed will not make you test positive. While there are amphetamine based meds on the market, the test is looking for certain chemicals uniquely found in Meth. However, since meth is an amphetamine based drug, it is possible that a drug test could show a positive result if you are taking amphetamine based medicine. A drug test should not show a positive result in those circumstances, however not every manufacturer makes their tests the same. It would be your responsibility to inform the tester if you are taking amphetamine based meds PRIOR to the test.
Yes you can absolutely test positive for meth using Lipozene
No unless you are actually doing meth.
