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

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.

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 ?
