False Positive for Benzos
I take suboxone and paxil. When my doctor gave me a drug test it came back positive for Benzos. I dont no why please please help me.... ## Hi Mandy, Although I haven't located any details confirming the possibility of a false positive for Benzos from either of those medications, I do believe that it's still a strong possibility due to the faulty standard drug tests they use today. A lot of these standardized drug tests have a fairly high false-positive response, where it seems as though anything is likely to show up. To my knowledge, false positives are known to occur on them anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. Have you asked your doctor about getting re-tested? I hope you can get this sorted out! These false reports just put too much stress on patients who are simply taking the... ...

can suboxone cause a false positive oxycodone
I was tested for oxicodone and it also showed positive for subaxon is that common mix up ## Dear Mike, did u take any suboxone? They r both opiates, but, they should come up desperate. When my Dr. Tests me, he tests 4 opiates and suboxone. (2 seperate tests.) I don't know what could have happened ? R u sure u didn't accidentally take suboxone? I just never heard of such a thing. ## Dear Mike, P.S. After doing some research, it can happen. It's happened 2 other people. I would sit down and talk 2 you're Dr. Or whoever is in charge and explain yourself. But, like I said earlier, they r usually done separately. (The 2 tests) sometimes, the Dr. Will do a panel of a few different tests. ( benzos, opiates, soboxone, meth, cocaine) GOOD LUCK! ## Please expand on who and where a... ...

False Positive On Drug Test For Benzos
I take 10 mg Lexapro, 3 mg Melatonin, and Loratab 10/500 daily and tested pos for Benzo.. . Can any of these medications cause the false positive results? ## Is there any "common" way, (like lots of water or vitamins) to flush benzos out of your system within 20 days? I took 1-2mg of xanax for a week and I have a UA with my suboxone Dr in 20 days. I found out (internet) just how dangerous the xanax can be when taken with suboxone so I wouldn't do that again but yikes, I have already had a false pos for eating poppy seeds, and a false pos for THC! I never use weed, EVER, hate, hate, hate the feeling it gives me so I don't need a pos for benzo's, especially after the last two. And this time I am guilty. I took em and now Im kinda freakin out. Help, please. Oh and I als... ...

False Positive for Benzos - Will the find subutex?
Hello, I need urgent and immediate (and hopefully accurate and detailed) help. I will take what I can get. I have been taking subutex (and some suboxone for months. But for the last few I take tiny pieces of subutex daily to keep my tolerance down. I am on juvenile Probation and have a typical Urine Test 2-3 times a week. I always pass. Well this week, the Bactrum DS I took for a UTI made me have a false positive for Benzos. I informed my caseworker that it was most definatly the bactum and denied taking any benzos (because i didn't) and accordingly my urine was sent to "the lab" Now I am quite terrified because I don't know if the lab testing to see if I did or did not take benzos will also discover I'm taking subutex. I don't know there methods, if they solely ... ...

False Positive for Benzodiazepines
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 checked the prescription medications that you listed, but none of them are known to cause false positives for Benzodiazepines. However, it can be caused by Benadryl or anything that contains its active ingredient Diphenhydramine, such as Tylenol PM, Advil PM or the store brand/generic equivalents. There are also many Chinese herbal remedies on the market, such as those for weight loss and relaxation/sleep that have been found to contain them as undeclared drug ingre... ...

False Positive Urine Screens
can cough medicine cause a false positive for benzos ? i am on suboxone and took some cough medicine and came up dirty for benzos and i have never touched them at all and know im in fear that i may lose my suboxone from this !!!! PLEASE HELP ## What type of cough medicine? There are many on the market, so I can't help you without knowing the brand name or ingredients that were in it. Learn more drug test details here. As to the test, did they send it out to an actual lab to have it tested further? Because that more precise testing should distinguish what you've actually taken and eliminated false positives. ## no they did not send it to a lab they had me come in a few days later and take another urine screen i was taking nyquil cold and cough . my urine screen was negative for b... ...

False Positive Benzodiazepines
I have been taking suboxone for almost a year and had to move to a new doc. They drug tested me and said I tested positive for benzos. The funny thing is I have not taken ANY benzos. I have to go take another test today at 5 and I am scared s**tless cuz they said if benzos are still in my system then they can not see me. Knowing that I haven't taken any benzos makes me wonder if I might still test positive for it again. I did take some cough syrup and some percs but that is it. What could cause this? ## Well, it could be something in the cough syrup, some of them, such as NyQuil and a few others contain ingredients that will cause a false positive for other substances. Do you remember what kind of cough syrup you took or what was in it? I will gladly look it up for you to check. ## ... ...
