My toxicology test is showing a benzodiazepene when all I'm taking is Melatonin? I don't get it, you can get melatonin over the counter since it's a natural supplement.

I find this occurrence to be very unusual considering that melatonin is completely unrelated and would even go so far as question if anyone might've had the opportunity or a reason to try and pollute your sample before the tox report? Given the circumstances it may be a good idea to request a re-evaluation via Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) to achieve what I'd imagine to be the most accurate results. If the GC-MS proves otherwise, then it should be a wake up call to the inefficiency of standard toxicology procedures. Please keep us posted if everything gets straightened out for you! I hope this helps!

I take melatonin to sleep every night and I'm on color code and it has never showed up on my drug panel.

Just out of curiosity, can Neurontin show up in a UDS as a benzodiazepene? If so, do you have to be taking large amounts? Or can it still appear if you're only taking 900 mg per day or every other day?
