False Positive For Medication Benzodiazepines

Becca Says:

Does anyone have a list of the medications that can cause false positives? I take quite a few meds and my probation officer said I tested positive. This is impossible. I only take what is prescribed to me, and none of them is on the list of Benzodiazepines.

There are quite a few medications that can cause such false positives, as a matter of fact, it is far too large of a list for me to name them all for you.

However, if you can post back with the names of the medications you take, I will gladly check for you to see if one of them may have caused it.


Can you please post back with more information?

Can Benedryl cause a false positive for Benzos drug screen? If so, where can I find evidence supporting that? A job is on the line!

I have been on pain medications for 25 years. I have always had a clean UA with only my prescribed medications in my system. This last time I tested positive for benzoides (or what ever that is). The only thing I have recently starting taking is Chlorphen Tabs for itchy water eyes and hives. Can Clorphen show up as a false positive?

I have been testing positive for Benzo's too and I use to take them before but haven't since June 4, 2014 and I kept coming up positive for Diazaepam (valium) but thats the problem I use to tale klonopins and libriums so this is bull because I know what I put in my body and the nurse for my soboxin doctor is trying to tell me their lab don't make mistakes well whatever I don't trust these labs its sad people can loose everything because of positive results and the ones giving the test treat you like your guilty and will not even look into how this can happen, I wish their lives were on the line maybe they would help us if it happened to them. My last 2 urines have now been negative I don't get it I haven't taken anything different for it to now have been negative and I have not changed anything . My primary care Doctor gave me a couple of places that will do test to see why this has happened so at least she believes me.

I have been testing positive for benzos' for 4 weeks now. I have not had any benzos in 60 days. Both ua and blood test show a positive. The blood level was 300 out of a possible 1500. ( whatever that means.) I take just suboxone, lithium, and 800mg ibuprofen. Thank you to whom ever responds. This is driving me nuts.

I have been in a methadone treatment center for 6 yrs.... I haven't had any problems with my drug screens until the last 3 and it's been showing positive for benzo's which I have not taken!!! I have been on a lot of meds so I'm wondering if any of them could cause a false positive.... I have been on Zantac,Prilosec,Dramamine,flagyl,clarithromycin,phenegran,benedryl. Can any of these meds cause a false positive on a drug screen for benzo's?? If I can't find a reason for the the positive the clinic I'm going to will make me drive everyday to dose for 30 days and that's almost 150 miles round trip!!!!! Please someone give me some advise!!!!

I have been taking random drug screenings and never came up positive for benzo. I recently started taking prozac 20mg once a day and trileptal 150mg twice a day starting last month. I took a urine screen last week and tested positive for benzo and it hasn't ever showed up prior to taking these pills. Will either one make me have a false-positive result?
