Urine for pregnancy done at home have high false positive & negative values.always use good company card to test for pregnancy ,ideally be done by qualified 7 experienced lab technician.In my practice I am seeing lots of false positive urine for pregnancy test report & patient taking unnecessary treatment.I don`t think cough syrup effect the result.
