  • Drug test.

    Hey guys, just started a new job machine operating..the company does random drug (swab) and alcohol tests also urine test before you become fulltime. I take benzos, temazepam which is on script and also clonazepam which is non-script. My questions are will I get away with having the sciprt for temazepam as proof? And will this cover the clonazepam?

    Can I ask why you take clonazepam? Iv noticed it’s quite expensive.... my misses son takes it she gets it dirt cheap. I’m also a machine operator best job in the world!

      For sleep and anxiety mate. Yes it is expensive but only take quarter tablet to a half at times when needed so have lasted me ages.

    Frenchy8 In my experience, I am prescribed clonazepam and I take about .5mg -1mg nightly for a sleep disorder. I declare that for work, I get randomly drug tested and in the 5 or so times that I have been, it is an instant result 5 test random where the sample is taken and they shake the jar you get a result right then and there, I have never tested positive for Benzos, this led me to do a lot of research including consulting with my specialist and it turns out that Clonazepam does not show on an instant drug test the same way other benzos do. However in your personal situation with taking another prescription benzo my fear would be that if you returned a non negative for temazepam they would most likely then send the sample off for more stringent testing to determine if the amount in your system corresponds to the amount you have been prescribed, how that chemistry plays out is out of my league. All the best

      Thanks bro. Think I might pay for my own test to test the waters see what happens.

    depending on the type of test you'll get a drug screen on urine and they may send the sam[ple away to confirm what the drug is (example being going hot for opiates in the piss test, they send the sample off to find out its codeine or heroin)

    if that happens with benzos and they send the sample away and it shows the metabolite for clonazepam when you dont have a script for that you may get in strife. I dunno if they are testing that hard though?

      Hey mate, yes it can be differentiated on urine tox screen but that'd have to be medical grade, i'm not sure if your work place would have access to that level of testing. I know this because during my psych term i'd ordered multiple and the test results will show which benzo and at what level in the urine, as correctly pointed at by pmp313 it has a very long half life.
