Narcotic testing and cross reactions for positive results [posted 1/8/99]
Question: I was recently given a complete urine drug screen. I was on Lortab and Soma at the time, and the results were positive for benzodiazepines. I was told by a Judge that Soma can cross react, but another Judge thinks I am taking Valium. Could you inform me if this is possible, and possibly send me proof if this is true? I am on Community Control and had gone to court to get it reduced after 20 months drug-free.

Answer: You'll need to get a list of cross-reacting substances from the company who makes the test. They have this information and will tell you the cross reactivity rate with soma.
