No, seroquel (quetiapine) will not.

Here is a list of meds which can cause a false positive:

Hello. No. The two are from two totally different drug families. Take either drug(s) only if perscribed. They can interact with negative, side effects. Best of wishes,pledge

I was on seroquel a few years ago and failed for benzos. I was on no other medication.

I recently had a false positive for benzos. I take very few medications including Benadryl and melatonin and sometimes Seroquel to sleep at night.
Other meds; Ibuprofen, Tylenol. It had to have been the Seroquel. I have read in other forums where it says it can cause a false positive for benzos and PCP. I am 99%certain it was the Seroquel, because I am 100% I didn't take a benzo because they have an adverse effect on me.

I was only on Seroquel and it showed up on mine. It tested positive under Oxazepam which I've never even heard of that I know is a benzodiazepine.

I had a drug test done today. I’m currently on quetiapine (Seroquel) and it gave false positives for Ketamine and benzodiazepines.

In 2012 was on Seroquel and tested positive for Oxazepam. I had never heard of it before.
