Thanks for writing to us. I am happy to help you.

No, benzyl benzoate is completely different chemically from benzodiazepine and it never shows up as benzodiazepines in urine drug test. Concurrent use of other drugs may give false positive result. Please contact with your health care provider regarding this.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.

Be well & take care of yourself.
