This is Dr. David

you may need quantitative urine benzo metabolite testing

instead of just qualitative urine benzo testing or urine tox screening

quantitative urine benzo testing is more sensitive for certain patients to show that they are taking benzos like ativan

ask your doctors for this urine type test.

let me know if you have questions.
