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

Trazodone does give a false-positive for benzos and this comes from this site and Mayo Clinic. Please stay on the path of recovery my friend. It is a much better life than an addicts life on dope. Prayers for you in your recovery, Paul

You mentioned you are taking Prozac. Prozac and other SSRIs like Zoloft and Wellbutrin can cause a false positive for benzo's on drug tests.

Postive for benzodiazepines but don't take them. I take adderall and topomax that's it. Why this is a problem. Two urine test both instant test. Like home test. Recently started using e cig that has an oil that's used in it. It contains herbal extract? Maybe that. Help.

Kinda diff. topic but I had a false positive for "morphine" when on straight "naloxone" this was before Subs came out. I was in a program they UA'd me - either they made it up or test was accurate. Crazy I know but I got kicked out of a 12 month residential program that their shrink/ Dr. friggin put me on!

It's the Celebrex that makes you test positive. Google it. My doctor told Me they are not sure why.

Yes it's the nausea medicine showing a false positive. I took the same as you and failed a few drug test because of the nausea meds. It was showing up as a benzo. When I told my Doc he said it can't be that but that was all I took besides suboxone so it had to be that. Hope this helps.

I had a positive for xanax... So , what you're saying is Benadryl and Advil PM can cause this? I've never taken xanax... And my job has random U.A.'s , I can't afford to lose it over something so stupid. Simply put, I only take what I'm perscribed...

It can stay in your system for 45 days!! I got Xanax when I had my surgery while being n the hospital. And over a month later it's still in my system! Benzodiazepine can stay n your system for a long time. It will stay n the fat in your body. It can cause u to test positive for 6-8 weeks it depends on the person & your body.

I'm a pharmacist. Flexeril is not in the same family as benzodiazepines.

I am coming up dirty for benzos for the last three months. I did take them in detox in Dec. but nothing since. I take piroselic, diovan and gababentin. I have read the stomach medications can cause problems with coming up positive. I am going to pay for an independent company to test my urine because my program will not pay for that process. They are too cheap. They just want me to stay in the program so they can make more money.

Jayme, I did get kicked out of my clinic for a false positive, pretty sure it was Benadryl. So, now I am on day 56, and I can't believe I actually survived. And I'm just coming off a 2mg daily dose of Suboxone. I say only to you because I hear coming off the methadone is the only thing worse. Sorry.
Your question: either the dextromethorphan or the quetiapine are your most likely culprits. Best wishes.

I am currently in an addiction treatment program and on probation and trying to get my son out of foster care. I am really frustrated because I keep testing positive for Benzos. I only take what is prescribed to me which is Gabapentin, Citalopram HBR, Buspirone HCL and Trazodone. I have been looking for answers as to why.I am really disappointed that I can't get any answers. Because I am not using drugs and I want my life back, which is my son.

My son is coming up false positive for benzos he has been doing a good job of staying sober and doing what's right, this is horrible that they can kick people out of treatment for these things when there is so many possibilities of outcome testing.
he is taking Omeprazol, Naitrexone, Zofran, and Trazadone allergy tab as needed, he was also on antibiotics for infection. UA is coming up with Benaodiazepines. there has to be someone out here to help these people that are trying to become something better. HELP!!!

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.
