Drugs of abuse (DOA): If you have been taking it daily for a while it will show up in your urine for up to seven days or so. BUT this may not be a drug your lab checks for..... If you are taking the med for a legitimate purpose and your position allows it you should not fear the drug test.

Yes: Urine will be positive for benzodizepines (value and ativan) are both members of this class of drugs.
