What Can Cause A False Positive For Benzo Urine Test

4 Replies Updated

I take soma, lortab, trazadone, buspar, Vistaril, Zoloft, melatonin, valerian root, naproxen, and occasionally Benadryl. I showed up benzos in my drug test and my doctor uses a good test, so I am puzzled. Would any of these make me show for having benzos on my test.

Yes trazadone is the culprit ..happened to me a few times .. But only on strip test ..ask for lab test and that will clear it up

From what I understand valerian root can make you show a false positive for benzo's most people don't know it but it def. Can so be careful with that!

confused over this Says:
Tested POSITIVE for BENZOs without taking any!! Could CYMBALTA do this? or neurontin,? That is all i have taken besides methadone that I am prescribed, but the doctor that gives that to me, gives me random drug screens and says I tested positive for benzos. She had to explain to me what it was and even looked up things that could causea false positive, but the things she listed I havent taken. I couldnt remember the name of the antidepressant, but it is cymbalta. I only take that, neurontin, and methadone and occasionally benadryl and tylenol pm when i cant sleep. I'm worried about her discontinuing my meds for testing positive. Can someone explain to me how this is happening? and if these meds could cause it?

Tylenol pm. I tested positive for benzos on my probation drug screen a while back and didn't know Wat it was. They said almost any kind of sleep-aids can give a false positive for benzos.
