False UA for Benzo

I had dental surgery on Nov.16. They prescribed me amoxicillin and acetaminophen with codeine. On Dec. 08, I had more teeth pulled. They gave me a local anesthetic and a gum swab, and then prescribed Ibuprofen 800. I also used a Vicks Vapor Inhaler for 1 week. How long do these things stay in your system? On Dec. 28, my UA tested positive for a Benzo. Is this possible? Please I need something to help me prove my innocence, because I haven't taken anything but the things mentioned above. ## +i'm having the same problem just 2 months later it is really frustrating as i was doing mine for a job that pays well but this is the first time out of 20 drug tests i have failed and this only after i had my teeth pulled

Maximum dose for 24 hours

I am taking two 300 tynol/b every 4 hours. It this too much ## Manufacturer guidelines note the following... The usual adult dosage is: Acetaminophen (300mg-1000mg) 4x daily for a maximum dose of 4000mg within a 24 hour period. Codeine Phosphate (15mg-60mg) 4x daily for a maximum of 360mg within a 24 hour period. Doses may be repeated up to every 4 hours. The prescriber must determine the number of tablets per dose, and the maximum number of tablets per 24 hours based upon the above dosage guidance. This information should be conveyed in the prescription. NOTE: Keep in mind that high doses of either of these are considered to be toxic. Acetaminophen: toxic dose 10 g Codeine: toxic dose 240 mg I hope this information helps!
