Recently I was overwhelmed and took a lorazepam that wasn't (.5 mg) mine. If I passed an at home drug test would a pass a lab Corp drug screen?

Recently I was overwhelmed and took a lorazepam that wasn't (.5 mg) mine. If I passed an at home drug test would a pass a lab Corp drug screen?

It takes time: To metabolize a lorazepam which is one of the benzodiazepines that has the longest half life. So time is the only factor that determines whether the drug will be out of your system before you take the LabCorp drug test. I would not hang my hat on the home test. ...Read more

What is your?: The blood pressure is borderline, which may well have related to your anxiety at the time. I would recommend having your doctor repeat your blood pressure (in the right arm while sitting, btw) another time. If it continues to be in that range, you should consider weight loss, salt reduction, stopping smoking if you smoke and an exercise program, then recheck the BP again. ...Read more

Why didn't my medicine "percocet" or "ativan" show up in my drug screen? I have a herniated disc in my lower back and panic attacks, I take my medicine daily, just as prescribed, but neither showed up in my drug test... Can you help me?

Percocet: Percocet is a narcotic (opiate class) pain medication made up of a combination of oxycodone and Acetaminophen (tylenol). It would show up in a drug test as oxycodone or as an opiate depending on the test. Ativan (lorazepam) is a benzodiazepine called Lorazepam used for anxiety and a few other problems. Since Ativan (lorazepam) is the brand name, it usually show up in drug tests under it's generic name Lorazepam or as a benzodiazpine which is it's class of medication.

If nothing showed up in your urine drug test and you are taking these medications daily as prescribed, you may want to call your doctor and have it repeated. ...Read more

Many of the screening tests have tests for concentration as part of the test, and if the urine is too dilute it will show up.
