Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this disturbing thought you have. There are several drugs that can cause you to test positive which include amphetamines, phenylephrine present in several drugs to treat cold and congested nostrils, some antipsychotic medications, etc. If you had a false positive result, please submit the list of your drugs to me for review. This way, I will identify which possible agent is responsible for this finding.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.

Also what symptoms would a patient have for a doctor to prescribe desoxym
