Brief Answer:
No,its not the problem.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare magic.

I have read the query and assure you that the positive drug test is not due to ganoderma.Though NSAIDS,and sumatriptan are primarily used in migraine in some conditions in ER opioids like meperidine,morphine can be used which must have lead to positive drug test.I suggest you properly confirm the medications used in ER for reaching a conclusion.
Hope this answers the query.
