    Default Benzos and my Urine test - no valium script (Need help PLEASE)

    OK. So my job required I get a drug test that's fine. I put down that i was on clonazepam where it said if i take any medications ( I have a script for it). So there were three boxes.

    -there were the five heavy drugs pcp, ect.

    -panel - whatever that is

    -And then POCT which when then hand printed with a BZO (benzo) and that was the one that was checked off. I wonder if I didn't put clonazepam there they wouldn't have done that test?? Does anyone know?

    So today I got a phone call from the drug place saying that I tested positive for valium and then she asked me what the doctors name was and number. I toldd her that I would call her back because I dont have it in front of me (Which was a lie). So I don't have a valium script but I do take it.

    Now Should I just say that i take clonazepam and maybe your testing got confused, Or give her the Dr.s name who once prescribed me valium 8 months ago? Or just give her the name and Number of the Dr. Who prescribes me The clonazepam.

    I would really appreciate you guys for helping me out in any way shape or form LOL. Any exxperience or any helpful advice I'll buy you guys a sandwich.

    thanks

    Since she specificly mentioned valium I would play it safe and use that script. No where is it written that you have to take it every day. I would say I only take it when I need it and that should cover your butt... good luck

    @Mickle1

    Definitely use the Valium script doctor, they don't insist you have to take them straight away so you could have just kept them in the cupboard for PRN use and only use them sporadically! :-)

    Good Luck!

    You're obviously not going to say "your testing got confused." That's ludicrous. If you have a script for Valium from one doctor and a script for clonazepam from another, that's a red flag. If the Valium script is 8 months old and you have a high level in your system, you're fuked.

    Regardless, you lied on your application and whatever you say will just dig a deeper hole, so I wouldn't expect a job offer. Learn from your mistake. Be prepared to have an explanation for both doctors.

    Yes, I agree. If you had a script in the past from a doc- that should cover you. There is no reason why you couldn't have taken one PRN (as needed). Explain you had a few left over and for whatever reason, you needed to take one recently. Valium is heavily prescribed also for muscle strains and neck/back pain...at least at the facility I work. If you had a legit doc in the past write you this rx, def give his/her name.

    And not to get on my soap box, but I absolutely hate these #(%&#!! urine and hair follicle drug tests. I believe these tests are against our constitutional rights. As long as you don't go to work altered, I feel employers have no right interrogating our medical history.

    Good Luck Again

    How long ago was your hospital visit? Maybe you could still explain the positive result with the valium they gave you there. Also in one of your previous posts you said you were prescribed with valium; however in your last post you write that you never had a script for it *confused* (how is that even possible? ^^ Or were you referring to your hospital visit?). Either way, if you ever were prescribed with it go get in touch with the institution that handed out the the pills to you, get a confirmation from them and then go by what Chancer said.

    This might be a little off topic but is this some high paying job? U only ask because I've only ever had to take a five panel UA for my job which I thought didn't test for benzos, also my UA I take at my clinic just shows up as benzo for my Xanax use and doesn't tell the difference between benzos. Sounds kind of strange that they are going thru all this trouble then again I've had my job for 13 years so I guess things change.

    *This post was auto-merged. The following text was added 3 minutes after the last post:*

    Did you know that you would be taking the test when you did? If so why didn't you just stop taking the vals? Also do you take the klons with vals together? Again I'm just curious that's all

    Brother Vals stay in your system FOREVER!!! I pissed dirty at the clinic for six count em' freakin SIX WEEKS!!! Although i had been taking 30-40mg a day for a couple or more years as prescribed. The clinics her where im from dont care if you have a script or not. they just flat out cut your methadone dose in half or kick you off all together. But Vals, and benzos in general stay in your system a long time. The bad thing is with Valium it builds up in your body over time and stores itself in your fatty tissue similar to THC. But Valium is much harder to get out of your system after extended use than THC. My advice is to get a legit script if possible or quit taking benzos until you secure a good job. I know thats easier said than done, but as they say"you gotta do what you gotta do".

    Based on the spelling and grammar, it certainly doesn't require a graduate degree; based on the misrepresentation to the employer and confusion in the posts, it obviously doesn't require common sense.

    Those are usually requirements for high salaried positions. I seriously doubt she'll need to devise some excuse or story because a few probing questions from the employer will expose her credibility. She is not only a liability to the company, but, if she's working with the public, she's a liability to them.

    @nola yes I know Valium stays on ur system a really long time and is probably the longest acting benzo so yea I guess I asked a stupid question. The clinic I go to doesn't care if you use benzos as long as they are prescribed and they count the pills on occasion.

    I would estimate any member who has been here at least 6 months with 350 or more posts saw that coming.

    There's solid advice in my responses if you look deep enough or read between the lines. Before any job application/interview process, etc., not only do you rehearse, but you consider every factor that can impact you negatively.

    Everybody makes mistakes. Be sure to learn from them.

    Ok, this may be a dumb question, but don't drug tests just say positive or negative for benzodiazepines? Is it common for drug tests to actually determine what specific benzodiazepine was actually taken - I guess I thought they only did this for autopsies?? I'm surprised an employer would actually test for specific benzos. I guess I thought they only tested for benzodiazepines in general. @Mickle1-are you applying to work for NASA Seriously though, I'm surprised they knew you were specifically taking Valium rather than a benzodiazepine in general. I guess I'm just confused like always

    Valium and Xanax are the most abused benzos. Of course work places will individual test each one.

    Last time I read Xanax was the most abused benzo in the US and Valium was #4 after Klonopin and Ativan.

    And to the OP: You must of been going for one hell of a nice job for them to have a drug test that can distinguish between Klonopin and Valium. Same family, both long half lifes, etc... Interesting

    I think that's because Valium is probably the fourth most prescribed benzo behind the others you listed. @street_pharmacist

    I think it is probably because you did not put down that you were taking a benzo.

    @mimi07I applied for a job at Blockbuster (and this was several years ago) and one of the requirements was a hair test! At Blockbuster! I was so shocked, and also knew I would fail it as anything you have taken in years will show up in a hair test, that I just sat there with my mouth hanging open I just kept saying "a hair test? its not national security". Needless to say, I never got called back.

    I am in the health care field now and every job I have applied for and been offered the job contingent on a drug screen and back ground check has given me 3 to 4 weeks to get the test done. I have always been honest about the medication I take (regardless if I have a prescription for it or not) and also my criminal background and I have never had a problem. People will give you a chance (usually) as long as you are upfront with them. I am a pot smoker, so I just stop until I pass the drug test and I have never been asked for a prescription, maybe as I don't lie about what I take. Its a bummer, but I hope you learned a valuable life lesson @Mickle1
