Can you get a false positive for buprenorphine?

What drugs cause false positive for opioids?
Opioids – Although often used interchangeably, opiates and opioids refer to different classes of xenobiotics. Opiates are derivatives of the opium poppy (morphine and codeine). Opioids refers to a very broad class of drugs with opium-like effects (hydrocodone, oxycodone, propoxyphene, hydromorphone, fentanyl, methadone, propoxyphene, etc.).
- Most urine drug screens are designed to detect opiates (namely morphine) and drugs metabolized to morphine by the human body (i.e., heroin) and often “miss” the majority of semi-synthetic and synthetic opioids; although, cross-reactivity does occur and is assay dependent.
- False-positive opiate tests have reportedly been caused by dextromethorphan, diphenhydramine, quinine, quinolones, rifampin, verapamil, and poppy seeds.4 In the hopes of testing for medical adherence, some urine drug screens specifically include methadone.
Of note, false positive methadone screens have been reported to be caused by quetiapine, doxylamine, olanzapine, diphenhydramine, and verapamil.16
