I was wondering do antibiotics interfere with g/c urine testing??? I took a urine test a week ago 6 weeks post exposure but was taking flagyll for bacterial vaginosis. A few weeks before I was taking macrobid for a UTI. My result was negative. Could the antibiotics have given me a false result??? Should I retest??
My question is similar. I took cephalexin for strep throat and I finished that up 21 days ago. I just gave a urine specimen for a G/C test. I would think three weeks would be long enough to allow the chance of a false negative result due to antibiotics...what do you think?
I had a similar circumstance, I was taking antibiotics for another reason a day prior to my G/C test.
I was still prescribed the antibiotics to cure G/C, prior to the negative results. So if the antibiotics I was already on interfered with the results, the antibiotics I was prescribed should still clear up any infection, right?
The antibiotics I had been taking previously shouldn't have had any effect on the ones prescribed to cure G/C? I believe I was given a shot of Rocephin and a single dose of 2mg Z-Max.
