Yesterday I got my monthly drug test results back from my counselor. She said that I was positive for benzodiazpam, but i haven't taken any. A few day ago I was given Inapsine through an IV in the hospital could that or anything else be causing this false positive??? Thank You Jessica

Yes, it's possible that the metabolites of Inapsine could produce a positive result in the class of benzodiazepines. They are both considered major tranquilizers and have chemical similarities. Your pharmacist could help provide information to substantiate the similarities, as could your doctor.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Good luck!
