False positive for tricyclic antidepressants in urine test?
I recently was tested by my parents because I have been caught using marijuana several times. They bought a 10 panel drug test from CVS pharmacy. I ended up failing for tricyclic antidepressants and obviously marijuana. The problem is that I dont even know what TCAs are but I do know that I have never taken anything of the kind. Before the test I had smoked marijuana the night before (no the weed was not laced with anything and dont respond saying it was cause it wasnt I went with my buddy to a dispensary and he bought it from there, I live in Cali where people can get marijuana cards to legally buy pot from stores that know what they’re talking about not of the street) and had taken 100mg Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride also which is simply a sleep aid. What could have caused the false positive if anything? I know these tests are faulty. DO NOT REPLY IF YOUR GOING TO TELL ME WEED IS BAD, I DONT CARE YOUR NOT MY MOM.
Thank you for that I usually can find that stuff on the web but couldnt this time. I knew that diphenhydramine could cause false positives for other substances but I was just clueless as to tricyclic antidepressants are. Saved me from a lot of explaining. Can’t thank you enough.
