I'm a white male that is 46 yrs old. I'm taking a antibiotic called trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole. I'm on probation. Since I started taking this medicine I've been failing urine test for benzos. The only other meds I'm taking is janumet n vitimans. I never had a issue with these. I need some info on the antibiotics before I get in trouble with probation
