Protonix clearly states that it can cross-react with THC on immunoassay.  The conclusive test would be the GC/MS confirmation procedure, which would eliminate any doubt (unless you are consuming marijuana).  If the GC/MS confirms positive, then it was not the Protonix.  All Non-Negative screens should be considered inconclusive until verified by a credible laboratory.

I am taking Protonix, It is truly a Miracle worker pill, but I just had a urine test and the lab kind of showed a solid blue line on top and a very very slight blue line on the bottom, so it was inconclusive enough that they had to send it in for the gas test for THC, I am about 50 years old and the last time I was around that stuff was back in 1974. When I did my urine test, the lab people didn\'t seem to care about my comments that there is no way it could be positive, I felt guilty when I\'m not. Will the lab gas test save me?

It says \"Marijuana may cause a false positive on drug tests. Accordingly, you should mention that you are taking Protonix at the drug test.\"   Shouldn\'t it say \"Protonix may cause a false positive on drug tests. Accordingly, you should mention that you are taking Protonix at the drug test. ??

Actually, the exact wording there is: This medication may affect the results of certain lab tests (e.g., false positive urine screen for tetrahydrocannabinol-THC). Make sure laboratory personnel and your doctors know you use this drug.

Protonix CAN cause a false positive for THC (marijuana).  If you are taking protonix, inform the technician administering the test that you are taking protonix prescribed.  Ask for information about the company that actually handles the the analysis of your urine.  Contact the company and inform them about your prescription. Contact the doctor who prescribed the drug and contact the pharmacy where you got the drug.  All of this will take approximately 15 minutes and will help clear your name in case of a false positive.

Summary:
1) Inform the technician collecting the sample.
2) Contact the company preforming the analysis.
3) Have your doctor fax or email your prescription information to the company.
4) Have your pharmacist fax or email the prescription information.

There are confimatory tests that can tell the difference between an initial false positive for THC and the use of protonix. There is no need to miss out on a job opportunity because of a false positive... all it takes is 20 minutes of your time.  However, if you are using marijuana... don\'t waste those 20 minutes.  These steps won\'t help.  And to the person who wrote \"I field a thc test on the account that I used prilosec and missed out on a inportant job opertunity!\" I have a feeling you didn\'t miss out on anything due to a false positive.  And no, I\'m not accusing you of smoking pot...
