Lunesta will more than likely show up on a drug test if you have only taken it a day or so ago. However, if you have been given this medication on a prescription from your doctor then just take that prescription with you and explain why your test will come up positive for Lunesta. This will ensure that you don't get in any trouble.

  • Passing a drug test.
The easiest and most simple way to pass a drug test is to not take any drugs in the first place. If you don't take anything then there will be nothing to detect in your system. However sometimes a one off mistake can get you into a great deal of trouble. Below are some ways that you can avoid doing this.

  • What foods to eat.
With regards to what you eat, you want to avoid junk food as much as possible. Foods that are greasy and high in calories have been proven to slow down the process of detoxification. Instead you should eat foods that are high in proteins, fiber, carbohydrates and vegetables. Eat these foods normally throughout the day but avoid crash dieting as these will also slow down your metabolism.

  • What to drink.
The best way to help encourage detoxification is to drink plenty of water as it helps to trigger the natural process. It also helps to flush out your system. Two days before your drug test, although a whole week would be more guaranteed, you should not take any more drugs and proceed to at least six glasses of water every day.

  • Go for a run.
Exercise is one of the best ways to speed up your body's natural detoxification process. Although people may try to substitute exercise by loading up on caffeine, there is no replacement for real exercise. Not only are you increasing your metabolism and burning out any substances, you are doing it at a much faster rate.

I have to take random drug tests for my probation, these are urine dip stick tests that don't test for individual drugs but test in categories such as benzo, THC pcp,oxy, ect... I was taken ambien and tested positive for benzos buy my po said that's normal. Now I take lunesta which is in the save class and also considered a Z drug. Could I still test positive for benzos?

Lunesta is not a "scheduled" drug or narcotic that is concerning on a urine test.  Prior to your test they ask you if you are taking any drugs.  Both RX. And OTC.  Just disclaim you are taking it, and you will be fine.
