Don't worry flexeril isn't part of a drug screen anyway. They aren't looking for that kind of stuff, they are concerened with street drugs primarily. I take drug screens all the time and when I was taking heavy doses of opiates no-one ever said a thing... LOL!
I take somas but the generic brand and they of course are a muscle relaxer and do have a benzo metabolite. They do show up on drug screens. As I take random drug tests where I work. Research it on yahoo search and see if it has a benzo metabolite. As long as you have script your okay. If not then we all know this is a different story. Wish you luck.
and soma metabolizes into meprobamate which is a sleeping class of drug. I have never seen where it metabolizes down into a benzo at any level...it is a muscle relaxer with some sleep and pain relieving qualities
i do see how it could show up as a barbituate after it metabolizes, as meprobamate is kin to the barbituates...not sure i see the benzo factor but either way..best to have a scrip for whatever u r taking and then we do not have to worry (:
Flexeril is actually a trycyclic antidepressant and can become very addictive if taken often. That is why doctors prescribe it in small doses but if it shows up on a mouth swab, urine or blood test it will be as an antidepressant. Hope this answer helps....
