was anyone aware that methadone can cause a false positive reading on a pregnancy test? i sure as heck wasnt! i took a test that was positive on friday, and my husband and i were shocked it happened so fast! I notified my clinic and they tested me this morning, and the test was negative... I took 3 more tests today when i got home and they're all negative. my OB and i did some research on false positive test results, and certain meds will cause your pregnancy test to read positive. At the top of the list of meds that have that effect was methadone!

I had heard this before but had not known anyone who actually had this happen to them. So many medications and/or substances can cause false positives for a lot of things, not just pregnancy or drug use, but you can have blood sugar tests with inaccurate readings, protein in the urine and other situations such as this.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this, as I said, I haven't talked to anyone or known anyone that this actually happened to, but I had heard of it being a possibility.
