    Default Can Ambien cause false positive?

    Hello,
    I took a PT 3 days ago bcs of missed period. About 3 days prior I took half dose of 10mg Ambien because of restlessness. This was my first time taking the medication. I read limited information on Internet that indictates Ambien can result in false positive. Furthermore, I read that Ambien leaves the body fairly quickly. So, I took 3 different test two days later and they are all positive(to include digital). I don't want to get excited or tell DH because wwe have been dealing with infertility for 13 years. And to raise false hopes is too much. I dont have any symptoms. I am going to wait until the end of this week to test again. Any advice or input? Thanks!

    I hope that its not a false positive! I would think the ambien has already left your system after 3 days! I think your best bet is to go to the doctor and request a beta blood test. Good Luck and KUP!

    Wishing you the very best...fx I hope its the sure thing and I will be praying for you. If you can get a blood test to be absolute. b/c that a lot of pressure to wait. Keep us updated

    Those are all REALLY positive. I just can't see anyway that the meds would still be affecting it. I think you should be expecting a great beta #!!

    Yeah, those look way too dark to be a false +. I hope you get great news on your beta! What treatment, if any, were you doing? I'll have to google now to see why Ambien could cause a false +.

    Thanks guys. @Honest-I was not on any treatment. DH and I had all but given up. This + test is a big SURPRISE. Hence, my research of false positives. Ambien info was new to me as well. Bought a couple more tests from Dollar Store and took one after work today and it turned REALLY dark within seconds. I dunno...
