Hello and welcome to JustAnswer,
It does not.
well then I dont know what to do
how so? did you turn positive?
yes, I take celexa and I just took a drug test and it popped for benzos but I dont take anything other than that and otc meds
and I dont do any drugs
then you need to request that the sample be subjected to mass spectrometry testing as you are not taking a benzodiazepine.
they are sending it out, its policy, I am just concerend
what do you take the citalopram for?
post pardum depression
how far post partum are you?
4 months this pregnancy
my daughter is almost 5 sorry
i am wondering if sometime in the past few weeks you were given a long acting benzo in the few weeks after your pregnancy... some have very long half lives and could hang around a while....
examples would be valium.... ativan.... klonopin... clonazepam....
not that I know of, what would those be for
anxiety... sometimes given for insomnia.
ambien, lunesta, sonata are similar....
I was given lortab and med to stop my contractions when I was preg
you could have been given a benzo at that time too but that stuff is all long gone...
the more specific test might clear everything up....
while i am not saying that citalopram can cause a positive on a urine drug screen, i am saying that thre can be some operator error and bad batches of the test strips are also possible....
but no, as a rule, citalopram is not a benzodiazepine and should not be postivie for benzos on a drug screen.
do you have any more questions?
well i appreciate it
