Depends on what they are testing for....but basically, the ingredients of this over-the-counter medication, with the exception of the alcohol, does not contain illegal drugs. When it doubt, don't take it.....
There are zillions of OTC drugs, so I don't know the ingredients of all of them. Opiates are controlled drugs, so they are usually regulated by state and federal pharmacy laws. Before taking anything, read the ingredients and ask the pharmacist.
Most people who test positive for opiates on a drug test know why....
Old discussion, but since this is classified as a resource, I thought I'd share a little info. Though most of the time only illegal drugs will show on a screening, you have to be cautious when eating poppyseeds or products with poppyseeds in them prior to a screening because it can show up as opiates. Same type of plant, some of the same trace elements, so don't eat those if you know you will need a drug test.
