I have been testing positive for benzos and i cant figure out why. I have been taking suboxone & Ondansetron & promethazine. Thats it. If i fail another drug test, then my doctor is gonna kick me out. If anybody knows of any common substances, prescription or over the counter medications please inform me. Thanks

My Dr looked me in the eye and said he has never seen a false positive test as though this was supposed to somehow convince me that I decided to risk everything to take one of these things. I almost wonder if he even realized that he was looking into my eye and calling me a liar while threatening my functional life.

The problem is that Drs act sure even when it is the simple test without confirmation. I failed two tests and the only possible cause was taking Gabapentin instead of the Lyrica I usually take. I was not offered a test with confirmation and even though the testing companies tell you that you shouldn't make any decisions unless you take the test with confirmation I would have been cut off if I had tested positive again. I was fortunate and had been switched back to Lyrica for other reasons and passed.

Even now I'm at the mercy of a test that is wrong surprisingly often and can look forward to a complete disruption in my life and probably job loss as soon as the odds catch up to me.

The other cool thing is that you are forever marginalized as a competent adult and every appointment becomes about helping you less instead of helping you more. After the first false positive I asked for a better test immediately to prove I was an honest person and he made me wait for a couple of weeks for my system to clear.

Dentists use medications that can often cause false positives for various substances I'd highly suggest you contact your dental provider and inquire into what anesthetic may have been used during your procedure if any at all. That would be a good starting point.

Red,

As you mentioned you had dental work done prior to your false positive? Did the dentist use any sedation prior to your procedure? Often a local anesthetic ( novacaine or lidocaine ) can cause a false positive for cocaine. I have also reviewed a complaint where Ibuprofen in a higher than normal OTC dose caused a false positive for benzodiazepine. That said, these cases are notoriously difficult to substantiate unless the suspect sample that failed the presump. on site test was forwarded to a lab for GC MS testing. This protocol is far more sensitive and measures these substances in a different manner. I'm affiliated with a methadone clinic so we receive daily complaints of false positive findings. Benzos are by far the substance most reported as false. I hope that gives you something to look into. I hope you successfully retain custody of your children. Regards, Kenie

I am also on latuda and percocet and buspirone and ib profin I failed for benzodiazepines I don't take anything in that category but I failed for it the day after the dentist getting tooth pulled and now I pee clean but I don't know I'd it was the dentist or not hope this helps in some way you are not alone to make it worse I'm on probation 5 years reporting so I was freaki ng out I have a 4 year old and a newborn and I'm a single mom a false positive would ruin my life. And they don't even look into it I told them send my pee to a lab not to go off of some cheap panel test mone and my children's whole life is on the line over that stuff.

I have numerous times tested positive for benzos. And when this happens I'm treated like a scum bag. There has got to be something we can do? And like I've been hearing is the doctors don't and won't believe or even look into the fact it's something else. For the people that have there freedom on the line makes it horrible. I'm going to do more research. I wish and hope the best for all of you dealing with this crap.

It took 3 months for 6 valium to clear my system, well not even clear, but to get to a level of 25.. it's still there but at really low levels.. It is crazy.. I'm on suboxone & my last test tested positive for cocaine & xanax & I've not taken them in yrs.. It's been 20 since the cocaine.. I have a heart condition that if I DoD I'd die... I think a lot has to do with the labs..

Hi, I had a question and have been looking all over the internet,but can't find any answers. I'm currently in a methadone Maintenance program for Opioid dependency. I take a daily dose of liquid methadone. Last week I had a urine and I had a false positive. I came up for benzos when I have not taken any. But a couple days earlier I took a 10 mg Methadone Pill at home,on top of my dose. Of course I couldn't tell them that. Can methadone pills show up as a benzo in a urine test?

Have them retest the same exact test and if it's right meaning that it is a negative test then you will be fine. If not and you will have to pay for the test and if you have any steps with your contract you will lose them it's as simple as that there's no magic thing you can do now this happens from time to time nothing's perfect

Hi Sarah, I have a lot of time on my hands so I try to help out as many people as possible especially because I've been through a lot of the same things and have a lot of training etcetera with this type of stuff so you get it kind of for free here? Anyway it comes down to almost every time that it is a methadone or pain management clinic dealing with take homes or something like that? The whole false positive or false negative can be anything meaning any type of medicine but most of the time it's just someone that wanted to be honest with themselves and might have even buried it in their mind that they didn't take that medicine? If you look it up it's an actual subconscious medical condition.

I have a couple important answers for all of you. If you're really serious and you're coming up with a false positive benzo test without using benzos? Then whoever is texting you by law has to retest you but with obviously the same your urinalysis because if they didn't use the same one it could still get out of your system? Otherwise the only other thing I have to say on this it would be wasting a lot of people's time that really need help what serious issues if you're just asking questions on finding out are trying to find out how long I want or can of it would take to come out of your system? There's no actual mean number or time? You can stay in fat cells up to 6 months. I'm just qualified telling you this as a MD and a pharmacist so I have both sides of the coin have also been tested for drugs many times and have had false positives for many different things. So it's definitely possible that out of all the various kinds of drug test which a 9 point drug test is the most sensitive in which it will be the highest checkpoints for any kind of drug? All I know is make sure if you're not using anything that has benzodiazepine in it then by law they have to retest at least in America but by using the same urinalysis and won't let you use another urinalysis when days go by? And no that doesn't mean that using the same test is it going to come out the same way. No matter what this thing is as well everything we do because whether we put it into a computer a human puts it into a computer so if you never did any kind of benzodiazepine? It's your right and really your duty to make sure that they are on point and not taking advantage of other patients like you if that is the case? I hope this helps you?
