Customer Question
I had a urine...

I had a urine drug screen that came up positive for temazepam, oxazepam and nordiazepam and I only take temazepam. This doesnt make sense nor do I take valium.

Doctor's Assistant: Is this a time sensitive issue? What type of specimen are they testing?

Yes and job sensitive.Urine. They said I can pay to have it retested.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am a physician - I told them that it makes no sense! And that I was open about my meds and I am on Percocet prn for 3 spinal fusions. If I was on valium obviously I would have told them.

temazepam is metabolized to the final active metabolic product oxazepam

to get nordiazepam, you must have taken some diazepam

perhaps the pharmacist got some diazepam pills in your pill box by mistake.

I absolutely know I haven’t taken any Valium in the past year - they recommend me paying for a repeat more specialized test for $150 and I’m going to do it bc this is the last step for my new position that I have been waiting 5 months for . It’s just extremely fristrating bc this is all that’s holding me back to start my new job and I was extremely honest about what I’m on - if I took Valium I would have told them that too. I’m going to pay for the repeat test and fight it bc it’s my career on the line ! Thanks so much !

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
