I work for Clark County Probation in Clark Co. Indiana. I have a client who takes Citalopram. The drug screen returned positive for Benzodiazepines. Nordiazepam, Oxazepam, and Temazepam were detected. I wanted to see if that break down was indicative of the client's medication.
It shouldn't show as anything, but urine tests are very inaccurate. In my opinion they are so inaccurate, they shouldn't be used for anything important. Anti depressants can cause false positives for several different things. A blood or hair test should be done, when anything positive happens in a urine test.
Was the positive in a immunoassay test? Immunoassay tests are notorious for false positives. You need to do confirmation with gas chromatography – mass spectrometry test. If they are false positives, the GC-MS test should be able to confirm a positive or negative result. GC-MS is expensive but much more accurate especially if this result is going to impact your clients life in a big way.
