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!

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.

I'm known as a "walking PDR"regardless of all the ask doc's and internet like web M.D. the Vistoril showing up as restoril in 12panel urine test was the only false positive in my 12 year sober and if that happened to me without ever having taken restoril, i give up.

Yes. Benadryl will come up as benzos. And anything else containing the active ingredient "diphenhydramine" will. Also trazodone has been known to come up as benzos in some people's system

It's not the neurotonin/gabapentin. And methadone would come up as opiods if anything. It would be the benadryl. Also anything else that contains diphenhydramine (i.e over the counter sleep aids) can come up as benzos.
