False Positive for Benzos
2 Replies RSS
I take suboxone and paxil. When my doctor gave me a drug test it came back positive for Benzos. I dont no why please please help me.... ## Hi Mandy, Although I haven't located any details confirming the possibility of a false positive for Benzos from either of those medications, I do believe that it's still a strong possibility due to the faulty standard drug tests they use today. A lot of these standardized drug tests have a fairly high false-positive response, where it seems as though anything is likely to show up. To my knowledge, false positives are known to occur on them anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. Have you asked your doctor about getting re-tested? I hope you can get this sorted out! These false reports just put too much stress on patients who are simply taking the... ...

I was tested for oxicodone and it also showed positive for subaxon is that common mix up ## Dear Mike, did u take any suboxone? They r both opiates, but, they should come up desperate. When my Dr. Tests me, he tests 4 opiates and suboxone. (2 seperate tests.) I don't know what could have happened ? R u sure u didn't accidentally take suboxone? I just never heard of such a thing. ## Dear Mike, P.S. After doing some research, it can happen. It's happened 2 other people. I would sit down and talk 2 you're Dr. Or whoever is in charge and explain yourself. But, like I said earlier, they r usually done separately. (The 2 tests) sometimes, the Dr. Will do a panel of a few different tests. ( benzos, opiates, soboxone, meth, cocaine) GOOD LUCK! ## Please expand on who and where a... ...

False Positive On Drug Test For Benzos

I take 10 mg Lexapro, 3 mg Melatonin, and Loratab 10/500 daily and tested pos for Benzo.. . Can any of these medications cause the false positive results? ## Is there any "common" way, (like lots of water or vitamins) to flush benzos out of your system within 20 days? I took 1-2mg of xanax for a week and I have a UA with my suboxone Dr in 20 days. I found out (internet) just how dangerous the xanax can be when taken with suboxone so I wouldn't do that again but yikes, I have already had a false pos for eating poppy seeds, and a false pos for THC! I never use weed, EVER, hate, hate, hate the feeling it gives me so I don't need a pos for benzo's, especially after the last two. And this time I am guilty. I took em and now Im kinda freakin out. Help, please. Oh and I als... ...

Can ambien and bractim cause a false pos test on a regular drug screen ## I was given a 12 panel drug test and I tested positive for Benzos...I currently take Ambien CR and oxycodone 10 mg. Could the Ambien make my test read positive for the Benzos. ## I too have tested positive for benzos which i didnt even know what it was until i asked. I dont take ambein on a daily basis but i did talk to my doctor and pharmacist about it and i was told ambein is a anti benzo drug but bc it comes from the same family as benzos it may show up. I also have been taking a list of other anti depressants that i questioned about. But the only thing they can think of that caused a positive result is the ambein. ## Ambient can definitely show positive for benzos. It happened to me at the suboxone clinic. Ins... ...

false positive urine drug test for benzos

Been trying to get into a suboxone program. Already in 1 but this 1 is thru the VA & I get my meds free there so I'm sooo happy 2 get out of this civilian clinic. I've had two drug screens & the following are the results: + sub, + thc, & + benzos. The THC, says my nurse, is OK as long as my levels continue to drop. I used to take a lot of benzos but I've been trying for 4-5 yrs to get a spot at VA & I CANT mess this opportunity up. Benzos continue to show up on my drug screens & there's no reason they should! I read that some sleeping meds can cause a false positive. Is it true? I take prozac, remeron & seroquel q noc. Would one of those meds cause a false positive? ## I thougjt seraqaul i no i spelt it wrong but i thought it was a benzo . ## The ... ...

False Positive for Benzos - Will the find subutex?
1 Reply RSS
Hello, I need urgent and immediate (and hopefully accurate and detailed) help. I will take what I can get. I have been taking subutex (and some suboxone for months. But for the last few I take tiny pieces of subutex daily to keep my tolerance down. I am on juvenile Probation and have a typical Urine Test 2-3 times a week. I always pass. Well this week, the Bactrum DS I took for a UTI made me have a false positive for Benzos. I informed my caseworker that it was most definatly the bactum and denied taking any benzos (because i didn't) and accordingly my urine was sent to "the lab" Now I am quite terrified because I don't know if the lab testing to see if I did or did not take benzos will also discover I'm taking subutex. I don't know there methods, if they solely ... ...

False Positive for Benzodiazepines
238 Replies RSS
I have been testing positive for benzos and i cant figure out why. I have been taking suboxone & Ondansetron & promethazine. Thats it. If i fail another drug test, then my doctor is gonna kick me out. If anybody knows of any common substances, prescription or over the counter medications please inform me. Thanks ## I checked the prescription medications that you listed, but none of them are known to cause false positives for Benzodiazepines. However, it can be caused by Benadryl or anything that contains its active ingredient Diphenhydramine, such as Tylenol PM, Advil PM or the store brand/generic equivalents. There are also many Chinese herbal remedies on the market, such as those for weight loss and relaxation/sleep that have been found to contain them as undeclared drug ingre... ...

False Positive Benzodiazepines

I have been taking suboxone for almost a year and had to move to a new doc. They drug tested me and said I tested positive for benzos. The funny thing is I have not taken ANY benzos. I have to go take another test today at 5 and I am scared s**tless cuz they said if benzos are still in my system then they can not see me. Knowing that I haven't taken any benzos makes me wonder if I might still test positive for it again. I did take some cough syrup and some percs but that is it. What could cause this? ## Well, it could be something in the cough syrup, some of them, such as NyQuil and a few others contain ingredients that will cause a false positive for other substances. Do you remember what kind of cough syrup you took or what was in it? I will gladly look it up for you to check. ## ... ...

Gabapentin false drug test
5 Replies RSS
I have to take a urine drug test weekly and it gets sent off to a lab to be double checked. The last 3 weeks it says I failed for Gabapentin. I have not taken that kind of medicine my whole life. The only medication I am taking is Suboxone. Can someone please tell me why or how this is happening? ## I can tell you that some people that have been in jail have tested positive for cocaine while taking Gabapentin. They have actually stopped giving it to people in jail for this reason. I don't know the truth in this but I was told that Gabapentin pulls false positives constantly! Sometimes for benzos other times for cocaine. You tell me why? If there's a doctor out there please respond! So people that say you cannot test positive for other drugs are wrong!!! ## I'm posting this b... ...

I just took a drug screen yesterday and it read positive for benzos, but I don't take them. ## Hey let me tell you the exact same thing just happened to me today at my suboxone doctors office. I was racking my brain trying to figure out why benzodiazepines showed up in my drug screen because I hadn't taken anything but immodium ad and bentyl other than my suboxone. But my doctor said it could have been the immodium (loperamide) but I completely forgot to tell him I took the bentyl also until I had already left his office.
