No, diazepam is a benzodiazepine whereas Requip is an anti-Parkinson's drug. Requip works primarily on dopamine receptors in the central nervous system. Diazepam works on benzodiazepine receptors on GABA neurons. It is thought that Requip may have negligible activity at other GABA sites, but this is not its main mechanism of action. In terms of toxicity screen, I have not found data stating that Requip will give a false positive for benzos. High concentrations of fenoprofen, flurbiprofen, indomethacin, ketoprofen, and tolmetin (these are NSAIDS) may give a false-positive result by a TDx assay. Sertraline (Zoloft) may cause a false-positive urinary benzodiazepine assay using the original cloned enzyme donor immunoassay system

What is the street value of lyrica?

yea one pill is worth 5-20 bucks. A 50mg is bout $10 and a 75mg+ is 20 or more. but dont go over 35. after that no one will buy it an it has to be 500mg if you do. ive seen 75milligrams sold for 5 dollars a piece once sold in packs of five. (have stoner friends that love to get high but i wont touch the stuff)Lol, you'd be lucky to find anyone to buy it. This guy has no idea what he's talking about.'^This. Their street value is roughly equivalent to that of benzodiazepenes, likely ranging anywhere from $1-3 for 75mg. Anecdotally, 150mg of lyrica produces similar depressant effects as 5-10mg diazepam [valium], however lyrica does appear to have a much steeper dose-response curve where 600mg of lyrica might produce psychomotor effects closer to that of 30-60mg of diazepam. 10mg diazepam [valium] is roughly equal to 0.5mg alprazolam [xanax] or 1mg lorazepam [ativan]

How does one determine efficiency?

One way to determine efficiency is to compare the results with similar cases: * How efficient a person is compared to other people doing similar work * How efficient a process is compared to similar processes Another way is to determine what the minimum steps are required and how long each step should take. Then compare the actual results with the theoretical results.
