Does Zoloft Xanax Wellbutrin Show Up In A Job Drug Test


Hi Leslie:

My short answer is that Zoloft and Wellbutrin shouldn't show up on any drug test, and shouldn't be a concern if they did. Drug tests look for specific drugs that people take to self medicate, such as marijuana, cocaine (and its metabolites), opiates, alcohol and benzodiazepines.

Unfortunately, Xanax is a benzodiazepine. If you have a prescription for it, you may want to tell them and show them a copy of your prescription before your drug test.

If you are concerned about the test, talk with your physician about your concerns and he may help you consider alternative treatments that won't pop on these tests.

I hope this helps,
