I have recently been ill and I took a medication containing promethazine for a few days. I haven't taken it in about 5 or 6 days now but I was wondering could it still affect the result of a home pregnancy test. I did two test's today - both were positive - but I was worried in case they were false positives after taking the promethazine.
So I basically want to know how long after taking that drug would it affect pregnancy test results? Am I pregnant or not? Thanks.

Congratulations! This medication would not affect the accuracy of the pregnancy test.
