Pramipexole 1mg
Azithrommycin 600mg
Bactrim 800/160 mg
Stribild 150/150/200/300 mg
Valacyclovir 1 gm

Hi Paul.
Some drugs show as flse positive in drug screens. You must tell the testing lab what you are on so they can assess iif the result is potentially a fasle positive. The results depend on the test reagents the lab uses.
