Question Urinary Drug test

I had to take a thorough drug test for permanent employment at my job last week. A bunch of us went together. Everyone's tests came back the next day but mine didn't. First, its status was at "sample in analysis" for a few days, then it changed to "review pending" which means they found something(?). I'm all freaked about this and I supposedly have to wait for the doctor to call me according to the head of HR. Now a few weeks prior I was having severe headaches that kind of felt like pressure in my head. (Almost like if i was deep underwater). This lasted for about a week so I went to the doctors and he prescribed me Allegra and some other medicine for my headaches. It's the generic form but the ingredients are (45 butalbital/apap/caffeine tb). I was instructed to take 1 tablet every 5 to 6 hours for my headaches. Now do you think this could have caused my drug test to come back suspicious? This sucks because i don't take any drugs nor do i smoke, but it is making me look bad. The only other thing I have taken was hydroxycut a few times. =(

Actually, just about anything you take can look 'suspicious' on a drug test. Don't worry, they can narrow it down to what they're seeing and know the difference between an actual drug or something normal. They may have you come back and take another one just to be sure. Keep your medications on hand in case you need - or wish - to show them what you're taking. You also may want to ask your doctor or pharmacist if whatever you're taking can hamper test results. But please don't worry, you'd be surprised how many of these come out exactly like yours.
