I am a forensics toxicologist I review drug test daily to determine if they are positive or negative for any particular drug ordered by the doc. Depending on what your doc ordered. If he orders a full benzo panel you will be positive for both if the concentrations are high enough which all depends on how your body metabolizes them. Every lab has a cut off In which they determine is positive or negative due to the sensitivity of their instrumentation. But some docs can order a partial benzo panel and lorazepam is not usually ( at least where I work) on that panel only on the full panel. A benzo test breaks everything down so it will say if you are positive for alprazolam, alphahydroxyalpraolam, oxazepam, lorazepam etc. it does just say positive for Benzo. A screen will said positive for benzo but a full confirmation test will show what benzo you are positive for and the concentrations.
