Email 479: On Drug Testing

Posted by Pozziepinoy on 5:12 PM

Good day!

Tanong ko lang po... about sa drug testing results. I'm taking estiva 600 (efavirenz) and avocomb (lamivudine/zidovudine), will it show false positive results? Do i have to indicate that i'm taking these medicines so that they will not mark my result as positive?

I'm applying for another job and I'm becoming paranoid on what to do during medical exams for the pre-employment.


Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.

Good day!

I have a question, about the drug testing result. I'm taking estiva 600 (efavirenz) and avocomb (lamivudine/zidovudine). Will it show false positive results? Do I have to indicate that I'm taking these medicines so that they will not mark my result as positive?

Thanks and I hope to hear from you soon.
