    My Cat wants to take 24 Benadryls around 720mg I think. My Cat is on Color Code so he is subject to random drug testing. Do you think this amount would mess a drug test up to cause false positives????? He has not had a test done yet, so when his color is called it will be his first. Any advice would be great. Thanks

    No, it will not show up as anything.

    BTW: should you take ever take something that does cause a false positive, the sample will be screened again to determine what it really is, so the end result will be negative and it will not count against you.

    But the other test will cost you about 30 dollars though. I've read that high doses of dph can test positive for PCP, but I'm not sure that every test checks for that.

    When SWIM was in a placement center and was lab tested, they could test for it. But it is very unlikely any other kind of test for test for it.

    Actually, it can pop you hot for Methadone. This actually happened to me when I was living in a sober house a while back. There was always a very faint ghost line on methadone, but I wasn't really worried about ('cause ghost lines still constitute a pass), but then a time came when it was a full on fail. I was really surprised, and started looking through a book of false positives. I was looking for benadryl or DPH, but it wasn't in there. Then I found Methadone, and it said "antihistamines" can trigger it. As Funky said, it was fine, because I just had them send it to the lab. I also think it's hard to make this happen though, if you're not a heavy user, and are not as neglectful of nutrition and general health as I was. Every time after that, I would just drink a glass or water and pee before the test, this took care of it completely. Like I said though, I had a bad diet; didn't drink much water at all, and I was taking the stuff quite a bit. So, I would bet you don't have to worry about it, never hurts to err on the side of caution though.

    P.S. you don't have to drink a shit load of water to pass - which is good, since this would be a dilute, and an automatic fail. When I passed, there was still color in my pee.

    If anything it would make you piss a lot more often so it MIGHT flush your system a bit faster but thats it
