American Clinical Solutions Provides Test Services for Diazepam in Both Urine and Oral Fluid.
The metabolites of diazepam, i.e. nordiazepam, temazepam, and oxazepam, have their own elimination process. Previous studies have shown that in urine only trace amount of diazepam can be found, 33% of a diazepam dose is excreted as oxazepam glucuronide, and another 20% as conjugates of nordiazepam, temazepam, and other minor metabolites. By now, one can easily understand why diazepam was not found in some patients' urinary samples, since, by the time of sample collection, most of the diazepam dose had been converted to its metabolites. Therefore, the adherence to the diazepam would be better monitored by looking at diazepam as well as its major metabolites, nordiazepam, temazepam, and oxazepam.
