Hello from JA

No trazadone typically causes a false positive for amphetamine.

On drug testing, if there are positives, the sample is normally split and sent for confirmatory testing...GC/MS. If this is done..false positives are eliminated.

If it is not done, there is not a good argument that someone has a positive test.

You did not respond to all of the meds I was taking which I included in the box to type in. I take Invega, Gabapentin, Trazodone, Prozac and Cogentin

gabapentin no
Prosac...amphetamines
Cogentin..no
Invega..no

None of your drugs should test for benzos

And even if they did..they would be identified on GC/MS as the correct drug.
