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

Well benzos were in my system for a month and I got kicked out treatment because of it though I took a lot more then just one I doubt it would still be in her system after a month with just one Ativan.

My daughter keeps testing postive for benzodiazepines. She is in a DUI Court program. She just got sanctioned and spent last night in jail. On Nov. 12 she took one Xanax. Can it still be in her system this long? The probation officer doesn't believe her that she's not using, this is a horrible strain on the family, and I'm not sure what to believe. She is 5'4" and weighs about 120. Can anyone help?

Benny - drill. Had it happen to me on numerous occasions. They should be able to tell that it's from that and not from benzos if they send it off to a lab to have it analysed. That's what's they did for me.

I've been on probation for a year and have had regular, random urine tests. In January my doctor increased my fluoxetine rx from 40 to 80mg a day. Since then I have regularly tested positive for benzos. The only other medication I take is baclofen, 20mg 3x daily. I know baclofen operates on gaba-A receptors, and apparently benzos affect gaba-B. There is no literature or studies to back me up. What's happening?

understand your situation...I've been on suboxone prog for almost 5 yrs and take 6 mg/day. 20 months ago was having a critical family situation where I experienced the loss of both my dogs after 15 years. I was taking care of my girl who had lost her ability to use her one back leg, hence needed to be carried up/down steps she weighed 100 lbs and was exhausting day and night-2 months later my other little guy became paralyzed and long story short they expired within 5 months (I was beyond words devastated, miss them so) of each other and during this time I experienced my 1st panic attack and was obviously exhausted-I requested my sub doc, a neuro-psych if he could prescribe me something for stress, panic anxiety... he placed me on .25 and 1/2 =.357 mgs of Xanax /day...I've been on this for almost 2 yrs now and more than most times I show no Xanax in urine-I've taken a few half extra and told them I'd run out a few days ago - no problem but if it happens again... last visit, I purposely kept my .375mg dose, took it 7 hours before urine test, and the test showed neg for Xanax ??? What could be happening-any help please because my suboxone program is at risk. thanks

I'm on Methadone too. I just got called in for a positive Benzo test. I dont take them!. I was informed that I've had other ' false positives' that still have to be reported to my PO. Too late to retest. I got all clean urines at my IOP. I told them to call my IOP. They said it's apples and oranges because some tests have been unsupervised. I can't win! I might as well be using! They keep saying that I am!

I use Sodium Valporate , Lithium & Mirtazepine . Some Nurofen, Advil & Voltaren for body injuries and physical work I am a tradesman. I take these only , and a random urine test read positive for benzodiazepine.. I am bewildered as to what it is, curious if I have mistakenly taken an old Zyprexa (olanzenapine) could this have caused such a reading ?

The letter stated i WAS being released, due to a failed urine drug test. I immediately went to the office to question this. I was Never so embarrassed!! & humiliated in my entire life. My doctor whom I've know for at least 11 yrs. & concider a true friend,He was so rude & dismissive, He told me I had him fooled for so many yrs. & how dissapointed he was in me. I still didn't know why, after he was done degrading me, he said my recent urine screen came back POS. for Suboxone!!! I didn't even know what that was.I told him that wasn't true & to redo the test, he refused, saying he uses the best labs & they don't make mistakes. I asked if there was anything I was taking that could cause this, He said absolutely NOT. He told me to leave & he never wanted to see me again. Can anybody help me understand this? PLEASE!!!!

Just wanted to say, shame on your Dr for treating you so ignorantly. You're on prescribed opiates and suboxone (bupenorphrine/naloxone) is the same class of drugs, so for your MD to refuse to follow up a false positive with a requested retest is borderline malpractice IMHO. I'm sorry you lost an eleven-year professional friendship over thus but honestly, you're better off being treated by someone who will put a little faith and trust in you after all that time.
