Absolutely not: Different drugs, and will not give false positive results. Mechanism of action for gabapentin and pregabilin are similar but quite different from diazepam. Also the metabolites of diazepam would be in the blood or urine teats
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
