Hi MerryGirl, so sorry to hear what happened. WOW, I do think I would get gather up my supplements and anything else you take and go to my pain clinic with them. Let them see the bottles and write down the names of it. Thtas real scarey, like you say if you get kicked out the odds of finding another clinic willing to take you as a patient is slim to none.
At my former pM office I did two urine tests in 4 yrs, the nurse asked me the names of every medication I took in addition to any OTC meds.
I would not wait around and do this either I would get my stuff over there today!! Good luck. Oh, I am not sure if any of the other members on board has had this happen to them in the past or not.
You have been given some very good and solid information, Anything and everything you have been taking make sure you let them know, any Herbal things, even teas, list them down! That is a very scary situation, I do wish luck on that! But these labs can make mistakes and false positives is not unheard of! Try to be positive about it all!
