The Sertraline in the Zoloft has been known to cause a false positive for Benzodiazepines.

What the further testing will show depends on what type of test they've ordered and how in-depth it is, they should be able to detect the Sertraline and it's metabolites.


Have you gotten the results back, yet?

I currently take Sertraline. I had to have a drug test for my entrance to school. The only medication I take is birth control, Sertraline, and I was on prescription vitamin D. My urine test came back positive for Benzodiazepines. My Drs office said that the Sertraline wouldn't cause it. They had the lab do further testing. During that time I contacted my pharmacist and after he did some research he found that it can cause a false positive. I then found the zoloft insert online and it says right in the insert that it can cause a false positive. Needless to say, I called my Drs office yesterday and the results came back as everything being negative and the positive for benzos was a false positive from the Sertraline.
