Q: False positive drug screen and Protonix

If Protonix causes a positive drug screen for THC, is there a way to test the urine to see if the positive result is caused by Marijuana or Protonix?

Hey Tammi,


We've had previous questions false positive drug tests and protonix. Our community moderator John G. has answered one here:


If the positive result is indeed caused by Protonix, you should simply inform your doctor or the lab technician administering the test of your prescription. That should eliminate any confusoin. If further testing is necessary, your hair can be tested to eliminate marijuana as the cause of the positive result.
