In brief: False positive?

Some nonsteroidal medications can cause false positives for benzodiazepines: daypro, tolmetin (tolectin) Naproxen (aleve) Etodolac (lodine) and fenoprofen (nalfon).
In some cases, the antidepressant zoloft (sertraline) can do it also. http://tinyurl.com/ks79fns i don't know of any antihypertensives known to cause this -- so i'm wondering if you also take some of these other meds?
