I have been recently taking regular drug tests for work. My first 2 were completely clean then all of a sudden they say I failed and two days later I passed!! I know for a fact that I haven't been using or even around it. How would my levels be so high. I've been reading that Ibeuprofen can cause a false positive. I explained this to my case worker and she said I would need it in writing from a medical doctor. How do I go about getting that. Apparently the lab that tests goes by the creatine (protine) in your system. Now mind you my first two tests showed a level of the protine at about 26.4 but the test that I failed showed about 250+ and then the test that I took two days later and passed showed a level of like 83. Now I take ibeuprofen like candy when I have a migraine, is this possible?View Thread
Thank you for your feed back. I have been completely honest with my case worker but this drug testing is being done to keep my job and they lady that my case worker has to report to doesn't seem like she believes that I have been clean. My case worker called the testing lab to see if anything other than smoking could have caused it and they told her no which irritates me to no end because I truly haven't. My worry is this will happen again and I will lose my job. I'm at a loss and don't know what else to do to prevent this from happening. I've stopped taking Ibuprofen just to make sure. We are taking every precaution to ensure this doesn't happen but if it is stored as you say and can show up at any time what can I say, do or prove to my employer that I am not smoking and it is just stored THC from all the years of smoking coming out?View Thread
