I get drug tested at least once a month and sometimes even more often. One place that tests me monthly is my doctor. The other place is my employer. Anyways, every test from my doctor shows up positive for benzos and every test from my employer shows up negative. Does anyone else have experience with hydroxyzine (vistaril/ atarax) and drug tests? I do occasionally take benzos (Xanax) but since I know the exact date of my tests I always give 2 weeks to clean out my system from the xanax (which I bought my own dip stick tests that test only for benzos and the xanax is always out of my urine within 5 days tops, usually only 3).
I have searched the web extensively and I still haven't found a definitive answer. Some sites says that hydroxyzine has one of the same metabolites (cetrizine I think) that is one of the same metabolites as benzos. Other sites say that hydroxyzine has absolutely nothing chemically similar to any benzos and should not show up as anythinbon a drug test.
Anyone else out there take hydroxyzine and get urine drug tests? Any info from all you intelligent board members would be greatly appreciated!
