Pee Tests

Because I am on Nucynta ER 200mg twice a day and sometimes Norco when nothing I do moves the pain into a manageable zone, my pain management Doctor requires me to take pee tests every now and then. I write to ask you if you have ever had false positive results. I would swear on Mama’s Bible that I’ve had no alcohol, even in food or cough syrup or anything else in two years or more. Yet, I get sizable positive results from time to time — like today. I’ve almost been dismissed because of this.

Anyone else? Any ideas on what that culprit might be?
