In brief: Watch what you eat

As a corollary to Dr. Pappas's statement remember NOT to to put POPPYSEED dressing on a salad you may treat yourself to just before going in to do a drug screening test for your place of employment or local methadone clinic.
Then, you have to convince people you're not on opiates!

In brief: False positive

Sometimes taking certain other medications like zoloft (sertraline) (sertaline) or Daypro (oxaprozin) can cause a false positive urine drug screen for benzodiadepines.
