meds messing up a drug test?

I now have been clean and sober since February 1st of this year and I took a drug test for a job yesterday. I am pretty sure that Zoloft shows up as either a benzo or a barbituate. Is this correct? And does Topamax show up as anything either? If you know that would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Nicole

Re: meds messing up a drug test?

I take Cymbalta and when I went into rehab I had been clean for two weeks. I popped positive for every drug. They sent my sample to an actual lab instead of just doing the dipstick and I came up negative.

You should have the right to be retested.

I wish you luck.

I have not come up positive since and I still take Cymbalta and may be on it for the rest of my life.

topamax, zoloft cymbalta should not come up positive on a drug test...sometimes they cross react with something else and should be sent to a lab for re-testing.
