Supplement ingredients that cause positive urine drug screen test.

Resolved Question:

Hello. I'm wondering about a few supplements I'm taking. But here's the problem I have urine testing due to the nursing board because I'm a traveling nurse with a night flight and I need to know if any of of the supplement ingredients will cause a positive urine drug screen or would be seen as an adulterant. Are you able to help me with this if I list the ingredients? Thank you very much.

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
Chromium Picolinate as such is a therapeutically recommended component for weight loss and in other conditions. However in some conditions, instead of chromium picolinate the supplement may be adulterated with other forms of chromium which shows up on the drug screen. Hence, it is extremely difficult to predict whether your supplement is also adulterated. But if it has the pure form of chromium picolinate, then there is no worry.
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

Hello. Thank you for your reply. The bottle states Chromium (as chromium picolinate). If it is a pure form will that dosage be alright?

Yes, the dosage is fine.
The product looks fine too, so should not be a problem.
