"testing for benzo's" refers to testing for benzodiazepines. Benzodiazepines are a category of tranquilizing drugs (like valium, xanax, ativan etc), very different from benzocaine. Benzocaine is a local anesthetic and is NOT in the benzodiazepine family even though it has "benzo" in the name.
No it can't. Benzocaine and "Benzos" are two different types of drugs! But , if you are not sure, you can ask your doctor, or better yet ask your pharmacist, they can tell you the difference between the 2 types of drugs. Good luck!
