Thread: Benzos and drug tests

  1. Do all Benzos come up on drug tests? also, do muscle relaxers such as somas show up? Also, how long would a benzo/soma have to be in your system for it to show up in the drug test?

    No, not all benzo's show up on an initial blanket type test. As in piss in the cup/dip stick test. They are callibrated to pick up on certain benzo and benzo metabolites. Your most common benzo's will show up usually, diaz, temaz, xanax, oxazepam, ive heard mixed reports on ativan and clonazepam, depending on the test used. Then confirmatory lab testing will narrow it down to what drug or metabolite has shown in your system. Soma will not show unless they are specifically testing for it. That's how it is where i come from anyway. And to answer your question i imagine most benzo's would show within hours of ingesting them, as soon as your body starts to metabolize them and break them down there would be traces in your urine. The detection time after that varies immensly. Depening on half life of the drug. Look up any benzo equivillency chart and it will usually give half lives.

    UPdate: Passed the test- dosed tues and wed, xanny and clonaz, clonaz only on wed. Tested tues. passed. Ive also been reading upon lorazepam's short half-life and it supposedly is a good one (like clonaz) for beating tests as well since it doesn't have your typical metabolites. You still need at the very least 3 days- shit 5-6 days is pushing it.

    Temazepam, (Restoril) has a terminal half life ranging from 3.5-18.4 hours (mean 8.8 hours). Temazepam should be undetectable after a maximum of 5 times the half life of the longest lived metabolite. The drug is active as ingested, and is excreted in the urine mostly (80% - 90%). The major metabolite (the O-conjugate) has a normal half life of only 10 hours. The theoretical limit for detection in urine should therefore be between 17.5 hours and 92 hours, with an average time to full elimination of 44 hours. This is assuming that the detection test is HIGHLY responsive, and most of them are not.

    Lorazepam (Ativan) has a serum half life of about 12 to 15 hours, and the main conjugate has a half-life of about 18 to 20 hours (lorazepam glucuronide). Figure 90 hours for elimination in most cases. Literature states that "95% of lorazepam is excreted in within 120 hours, 88% in the urine and 6.6% in the stools.

    Alprazolam (Xanax) has a slightly more complex metabolic path, and the half-life of the drug can vary widely from patient to patient.

    UPDATE: As far as clonazepam is concerned, most tests have a cut off of either 300ng/ml or 200 ng/ml. The only way for clonazepam to show up is if you take a whole lot the day or three before or let it build up in your system and are out of shape. It also helps clonazepam metabolites aren't even tested for with the standard benzo test. i have taken 4mg two days prior and passed. Also .5 - 1mg a day before and passed. Just remeber a single dose of clonazepam is only 14 ng/ml- so you really have nothing to worry about unless they do a very specific test. My accounts go for both lab and dipstick tests. Just drink a lot of water, take vitamins, and maybe a little creatine if your so inclined, and you will be fine

    All depends on the levels tested for in the GC/MS lab analysis but, you're right, 14 ng/ml is well below any positive level I've seen.
    Also depends on which 5 panel "dip" urine tox screen is being used. Some do actually test for benzos such as Klonopin.
    The time period after which benzodazepine metabolites can be detected in urine is dependent on many variables and it is very difficult to make assumptions for others based on your personal experience.
    Bear in mind that diluting your urine by using copius amounts of water can flag your test as "inconclusive" and require a re-test. Also, I haven't witnessed whether someone is out-of-shape or not affecting a test outcome one way or another.
    Maybe but I've never seen it.

    Aussie,

    You said you are worried about passing a drug test for a job, but you also said it was prescribed by your doctor? Would you get in trouble for taking something, even if it was prescibed by your doctor?

  8. Yeah, no sweat. I speak from experience... I would have to take a lab urine test i think it was a 7 or 12, panel. But either way its out of your system in 3 days flat. I would always give myself a full 3 days and on the morning of the 4th day clean as a whistle.

    My doc does urine tox screens that are sent off to the lab (they seal them immediately when you come out of the bathroom). It always shows my klonopin, along with my lyrica, promethazine and my narcotics. It's funny because whoever sends off my urine keeps forgetting to put down that I'm scripted the klonopin so every test say "patient tested posted for benzo (klonopin). Patient is taking a substance not prescribed by physician and should be discharged." Ok, first time I saw that I thought "whoever tested my urine has too much time on their hands. They are telling my doctor how to handle me and my tox screen? Really? I laugh now, but the first time I saw it I freaked out. He leaves my folder in the room and if I just had a tox screen the month before it's on top so I read it while I'm waiting on him. I told him what it said and he laughed and said Don't worry but I kept thinking what the DEA would say if they saw that. Anyway, it's a running joke with us now.

    Shiny things distracting me again. *sigh* Yeah, my klonopin always shows up but they test specifically for it and ALL benzos, along with all narcotics and the medicines that I'm scripted to make sure I'm taking my lyrica and promethazine too.

  10. ouch that sucks

    There are many factors involved with the actual answer (as many of us have hopefully read) *which pill* frequency, dose, food/water intake, activity and age/liver function/metabolism
    next is type of test 5-12 panel dip, or lab* Meaning how many nanogram is considered a pass/non-registered-below threshold that's how panel/dips work
    Lab tests (as for my probation) are much more thorough, I took 2mg Kpin tonight (Friday) and have a dip Tuesday.. And probation Friday next week, I predict I will be fine given my body (average) fluid intake as well as my level of activity along with (something I personally stand behind Milk Thistle!)
    The question I don't see asked is this:
    Will klonopin pop dirty for benzo on a panel/dip test!?
    Ive worked for a treatment center for years and have done 1000s of UA..
    Refer back to substance,duration of use and dose being a guideline, 3 days and I have always pass but 4 is safe..
    Now for court aka lab tests- give yerself 6-7

    I know from personal experience that if you are on parole or probation they do in fact test for benzos, Xanax being one of them that is tested. The drug Alprazolam will stay in your system for 3-15 days depending on use. If you are a daily user for a long perioid of time and excess 2mg daily you will be closer to the 2 week mark to be clean. The faster your metabolism the faster you will have a chance of being "clean"

I know most places don't test for it and it doesn't show up in some tests, but lets pretend we have one that does. What I really want to know is- can a skinny, somewhat active person, in a hypothetical situation, pass a urine screen for clonazepam in 6-7 days. Thanks PR!!!!
    Hi
    When I collapsed due to lack of cortisol, they ran a lot of tests. I was told that I had the remains of diazepam in my system. At that time I weighed about 85 pounds and the last time I took diazepam was about 20 days before I collapsed. I only took about 15-20 mg throughout a particular day and I remember that day in question . They also found the remains of morphine as I took that the night before instead of going to A&E as I was stAying with my family who like to get involved with my medical treatment . I was not suprised they found the morphine, but I was surprised about the diazepam as I thought it was a max of 2 weeks, I asked the doc and he said that I was very small , weight does come into account as I am weighed my the pain team. If you weigh under a certain amount I think it is 92 pounds, then you need to take a peads dose. I find that now I weigh more benzos seem weaker, ditto pain meds, but at least thr pain team domt give you opiates with paracetamol attached.

    I've been taking alps from a vendor and my UA turned up with all sorts of benzos. I'm wondering if there is a more pure xanax. Like mylan or xanor?

    I've definitely recieved alp that felt like klon and vice versa. Usually back in the day when I would order from Pakistan. Now I stick to more trust worthy vendors.

  17. Does anyone know if soma or flexeril shows up on DT's? Asking for a friend.

    Only if it listed as specific metabolite to be tested for.
    I don't think even 12 panel screens search for it.
