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 on probation they sent me for a drug and alcohol assessment and I failed my drug test for benzodiazepines. I do not take anything like that and my freedom is on the line. Im prescribed percocets, Latuda, I'm taking Tylenol gel capsules, penicillin vk 500 MG, prenatals. And the day before my drug test I got a few shots of novacaine as I got my tooth pulled please help on why this false positive for benzodiazepines showed up please...

I got my first false positive ever for benzos... I had been taking Zofran, clonidine , & zanaflex! It showed 89% valuim the weeks before but showed an increase of almost 600%!!! Could these meds cause a false positive for benzos or caused the 600% increase? Help!!!

Tested positive for Benzos. I only take what is prescribed by Doctor. Paxil , divalproex sod dr 500mg, and Budapest, and blood pressure med. I do drink some energy drinks that are herbal. What is causing the positive results?

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?

Hey girl you're the one that's not very bright why don't you read the sentence? I also said for the last 12 years I've been a stage 4 cancer patient laid up in bed and on hospice for the past year-and-a-half. The last thing I want to do or care to do is correct my grammar ECT. You're the one that shows no education. Stop trolling people maybe you'll learn something I highly doubt it?

God Bless you! I'm on the other side of the coin now for the past 12yrs with STAGE 4 CANCER! I DON'T CLAIM TO KNOW IT ALL ECT??? IT IS A HORRIBLE bureaucracy How my "OLD" PROFESSION DOCS & NOW PHARMACISTS ALIKE ARE TAKING AWAY MEDS FROM THE SICK & SUFFERING. The actual issue if you have read a lot or a few of my posts, is the DEA & OBAMA ADMIN ALONG WITH 'CERTAIN" STATES HAVING A NEW DRUG War on PRESCRIPTION DRUGS! MAINLY OPIATE'S & BENZOS ECT.... ANYWAY IT TOOK MOST LIKELY A FEW SENATORS & CONGESSMENS' CHILDREN TO OD OR DIE ECT, JUST TO HAVE THESE SCREWED UP DEA STRINGENT PROFILING ECT...IT WORKS ITS WAY DOWN TO THE UNDERPAID (IE. OBAMACARE) HMO CLINIC DOCS THAT LOSE LICENCES OVER JUST ACTUALLY DOING THERE JOBS? SMH....SO NOW I CANT EVEN TAKE PAIN MEDS FOR STAGE 4 CANCER, wtf? FOR THE PAST 2YRS BEEN STUCK ON METHADONE & IT DOESN'T WORK WELL FOR PAIN AT ALL? WORST PART IS THAT IT'S WAY MORE DANGEROUS & ADDICTING THAN ACTUAL HEROIN! HORRIBLE!??

I'm in a methadone clinic in Brattleboro Vermont. They took a urine drug test. My sister died six years ago because of the mixture of benzos and methadone. I am very adamant about not taking any kind of benzos but I'm coming up positive for them. I don't like benzos and am scared s***less of taking them because of what happened to my sister. Although I take Tylenol pm and sleep aids cause I have had a really hard time sleeping. What can I do about this positive benzos bs. Please help.

Sorry John, You aren't trying to help. You're just showing your ignorance and hate as you accuse everyone of lying and act like your "education" makes you an expert on drug test accuracy and apparently now psychology.

Just because you were repeatedly told something and had your memory tested to make sure you remembered what you were told doesn't mean ANY of it is actually true. You have to be able to think and put together facts to have any clue if what you were told was correct.

If you were to even trouble yourself (as much as you have here) to read actual analysis of test result accuracy you would know that it isn't very accurate. If you had any field knowledge you would know that getting another test isn't always easy or automatic and that even if it comes back negative your records still show a positive test and, given the stigma against some medication, can compromise the quality of your care forever.

No studies or analysis of any kind says the tests are 100% accurate. If you take enough tests you will eventually test positive. If you are on lifetime medication you'll end up with several positive tests. These are facts based on math instead of what you call facts which in several cases is basically just heresay.

The wake up call is for you. Stop pretending you can help the liars and assume you're talking to honest people with honest questions. The liars know they are lying but their existence doesn't change anything for the honest people. Everyone in your profession is so fixated on the cheaters you jump at any chance to put honest people into the cheater category. Amazing medications that can change lives and eliminate incredible suffering aren't being given to people who really need it because you and people like you are so concerned you might get tricked or because your entire industry is more concerned with drug addicts than sick people.

None of you are nearly as smart as you think and your myopic education makes you qualified to do nothing more than you were specifically trained to do. You're in fact less qualified to speak outside of your very specific area of expertise than most people with more rounded educations and or experience.

That's a total made up like Zoloft does nothing of the sort? I am a pharmacist and I know the majority of you free actually taking benzos and other opiates saying that you're not taking them? Which is very common. Especially for addicts unfortunately. Admitting you have a problem is half the battle actually more than half the battle. There are tests that are known to be false negative and false positive that all you have to do is have them retest the test you took and if it comes up as a false positive again they will charge you as in you paying for the test and then the doctor will proceed accordingly as far as kicking you out of the program as you mentioned. So there's no anomaly in this whole thing I've taking many courses just on this topic alone in the 8 years that I went to school for pharmacology. Because I was a pharmacist MD. So wake up people just trying to help here

Most pharmacist since they have a college education can spell correctly and write a clear and concise sentence. You can't do either. Your obviously not a pharmacist as a matter of fact I don't think you're even a high school graduate....
