I am currently in a clinic taking suboxone and I failed my last two drug screens with thc and have not used, is it really possible to fail a drug test using prilosec and it show thc in my system even if it is a little trace of the drug?  My doctor said that there is no way that could happen but I know that I have not used any other drugs than the suboxone and the prilosec, and what can I do to get them to believe me?  They are going to throw me out of the program if I keep having positive drug screens.
