Can trazodone cause a false postive on a drug test?


Posted by jdalton314

I am currently taking trazadone, lamictal, and aircept and recently tested postive on a drug test when I have not taken drugs with the exception of my prescriptions. What could cause this false postive.

Yes, these drugs could cause a positive drug test, particularly if the test is less sophisticated and designed to detect anything from street drugs to steroids. If you are required to take the test, it is imperative to inform the administrator of your prescription medications.
