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 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!!!!

Tammy,
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.

Seroquel is causing the problem. It's the same as a benzo. Stop taking it and the positives for benzos will go away

Flexeril. All muscle relaxers will show up as benzos. Serqual will give a false for benzos as well. Methadone will not give you a false positive for oxycodone. Methadone will only show as methadone. Maybe the neuroton is giving you the positives for oxycodone

Anything p.m any medication that is used for sleep will show up. Benedryl will show up also. Pretty much anything that is a antihistamine will give you a false positive also. Some cough medicine will too.
