Bactrim has been reported as registering a false positive for benzodiazepines on some drug screenings.
Yes it does. It caused a false positive for me. So i went to my probation officer and Took a lab test which came out negative for Benzos but positive for Bactrim. So in theory It obviously causes a false negative for Benzo for standardized Drug Tests.
Yes Yes Yes I just spent 3 weeks in jail for taking bactrim. I know it was the bactrim because I haven't taken anything else. So please if you have to drug test DO NOT take bactrim.
Yes, for sure shows positive for benzo! Happened to me twice!!!
Here’s a thought... if you know you’re on the med and you need to take a UA, let them know you’re on the medication (you should be reporting any medication even if it’s over the counter anyway). This way if anything pops up they alteady know. I take regular UAs and have never had a problem with something showing positive since I always let them know if I’m taking anything that I’m worried with “interfere with or cause a false positive result”.
Today I tested positive for benzos. I haven't had any issues until I started taking Bactrim on Thursday. And today tested positive. I have not taken any drugs for over 2 years. This is very possible. I'll update upon results from the lab.
