Will Lexapro show up as Benzo on Urine Screen?
I jut started getting frequent UA's, and keep coming up for BENZO's ... I was on Librium for withdrawl off Xanax about 20 days ago, and Im on 20 mg Lexapro daily. Can the Lexapro be coming up as a BENZO?? One doctor of mine says YES other Dr says NO... HELP!!!!! ## The Xanax itself can continue to show up on a urine test for 6 weeks, after you have stopped taking it, though the exact time can vary slightly, depending on how long you were taking it and how much you were taking. And the Librium can also cause a positive test for Benzodiazepines. But no, the Laxapro is not known to cause false positives, but the fact that you were taking the Xanax and then used Librium may explain the problem. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I was add 6 milligrams of xanax a day for 3...
