Hi, thanks for the question. What other medications are you son taking apart from Vistaril and paxil. It is not the Vistaril that is likely to be causing the false positive but rather, it is the Paxil. False positive from SSRI's are well documented so talk to your doctor about it.
Yes it does. I take 50 mg per night and i failed drug test for benzo a secondary test though shows the truth and should show you clear.

Vistaril is labeled as an antihistamine and as an hypnotic/sedative, it is also an antianxiety med. It may cause a false positive on a drug screening, I would advise the testing person that you are on this medicine so they can tell the difference in the drug screening. Hope this information helps some. Good luck.
