Hi.

The local anesthetics (medication given to produce reversible loss of all sensations) do not contain the opioids like Codeine and Morphine hence it is unlikely to be the cause of false positive test for these opioids.

Yes, there is a probability that if you have consumed Oxycontin by mistake or if someone has slipped it on you, it can cause a positive test for opioids.

Oxycontin (Oxycodone) is an opioid pain medication that can be detected in the urine sample hence causing a positive test for opioids like Codeine or Morphine.

If you get a positive result for illegal drugs that you haven’t taken, you should request a test called gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS test immediately to confirm.

Hope this will help you.
