Customer Question

What over the counter cough medicine would be most likely to give a positive for amphetamine?

Hi--Primatene mist, Sudafed, Afrin nasal spray, Nyquil, and Tavist D all have the potential to cause a false positive result on a urine drug screen, but Sudafed would be the most likely of those to give a false positive result

What about "Actifed Cough Syrup", Would this be likely to give a positive sample for amphetamine?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 3 years ago.
Yes, Mike, Actifed contains Sudafed so it would be the best choice in this situation
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Which would you say would be more likely to produce a positive Actifed or Sudafed??


 


Are both available over the counter or are they prescription medicine??
