Trazodone (such as PLIVA [PLIVA 434; 100mg]) Is not subjected to the controlled substances act.

There are no urine tests that screen for it. Trazodone Hydrochloride is most commonly used to treat depression; sedation; fibromyalgia; insomnia; and anxiety.

It belongs to the drug class phenylpiperazine; antidepressants. There is no type of urine screen that looks for this, unless it is specifically being tested for. So a 5-panel, 9-panel, 10-panel, 12-panel, etc. will not be looking for this or its metabolites in your urine.

But, as always, you should consult your physician about any concerns you have regarding medication. If you are obtaining this drug via street methods (aka not via prescriptions) then I would offer you talk to your physician about using it, as to see if it is healthy or even a good idea for you. Any medication, absolutely any, should not be taken lightly, as everyone reacts to medications differently.

But the reason I know for a fact this will not show up in a urine analysis is because I was taking the aforementioned PLIVA 434's for depression at the same time that I was being randomly drug tested for my job. Firstly, I consulted my physician as well as notified both the testing facility and my employer that I was taking it for medical reasons. But after multiple screenings, it never showed up positive simply because it is not a scheduled drug nor is it tested for in your common urine screens.

Hope that helps,

You're mistaken, trazodone can test positive for amphetmaines depending on the concentration of the urine. There are numerous published journal research studies that have found trazodone can return a false positive due to the metabolite m-CPP and high enough levels of concentrations can result in a false positive.
