ceb Says:
Recent urine tox screen in ER was positive for benzodiazepines even though I had not taken anything other than cough medicine with codeine, Lexapro and Remeron. Can the Remeron show up as a benzodiazepine?

Remeron contains the active ingredient Mirtazapine, it is an antidepressant.


That said, no, it should not show up as a Benzodiazepine.

There have, however, been a lot of posts recently about these tests coming up with false positives, which makes me thing there is a bad batch out there.

Have you talked to your doctor about this?

Definitely shows up ad false positive. I went through a year of hassles with this problem. Making me fed up and go off my remeron which was a terrible mistake as my depression became so bad I tried suicide twice. Yeah just goes to show med prof don't know everything. Although some think they do.

I'm in drug court in south Florida. I tested positive for ectasy on Tarazadone so my doctor had me switch to mirtazapine and now I'm urine testing positive for benzos. I did a blood test that showed negative but the judge didn't want to hear that. This is really screwing me up!

I just took a urine sample and I came up hot for benzodiazepines. I take 15 milligrams of remeron a day. They sent it to a lab. I came home and took a $45 test and came up negative. I sent that to a lab. I'm wondering if probation is going to screw me over. I do not take any benzodiazepines at all.

I haven't had methamphetamine in over 6 days but I got a false positive and they're trying to lock me up ...I'm on a trial basis week and this is not good...I take remron, depakote and seroquel. Could one of these be the reason for a false/negative UA?
