I've been going to a methadone clinic for 6yrs. I have been addicted to opiates for many, many yrs and I'm 37yrs old. I also have hep c and have been taking treatments for this, so my liver doesnt metabolize ANYTHING like it should anyway. One of the many side effects of those trreatments is depression. I havent seen a doc yet that was methadone "friendly", so I havent tried to get any anti anxiety meds. Most wont give it to u knowing you are on methadone. So on Nov.12 of this year I took 1, 10mg valium. This past Monday Dec.5th I had to take a drug screen. It came up positive for benzos(Valium,Xanax,etc...). They do not tolerate u taking benzos and methadone,b/c obviously it is extremely dangerous. So they dropped me from 150mgs to 70mgs, which will for sure put me in withdrawal within the next 2days. I told the doctor it had been almost a month ago since I had taken this valium, and he might as well as called me a liar. We all know being drug addicts predisposes us to be liars also. I am soooo pissed b/c I REALLY havent taken a valium since that date. So my question is just how long is a valium in your urine or in your blood?
OK.......Yes this is a substance abuse forum.....what does that have to do with my question. I honestly wanted to know. I am a grown woman, Ive been the addict for years. For the past 6yrs I have completely turned my life around, for me methadone was the way. I cant say that for everyone. I can only speak for myself. But that is not what my question was. I took ONE valium and it was still in my system almost a month later. And because THIS IS AN ABUSE FORUM I thought maybe someone might know. I wasnt trying to be shady and find a way to "pass" a urine screen that I really couldnt pass. So where all that came from Im not sure. Oh and for the person that ask if the valium was prescribed by a doctor, yes it was. I have never liked valium--even when I was in full blown addiction. The treatments I take made me very depressed and I had anxiety. So it was prescribed to me and I took one......so I guess I will google it....
hey girlee if you got the valum from a legitimate script tell your consular at the clinic
they dont consider it dirty urine if you have a script for it....bring in the bottle with you
they will make a copy and keep it in your records...at least thats the way it works
in phx az....dont panic till you try this...I think all will be fine after you take this rout
good luck and god bless Gnarly
