Will clonazepam show a positive drug screen on the DOT drug screen?

My girlfriend is prescribed a small dose of clonazepam for mild anxiety. 25 mg. She has to take a DOT drug screen. She doesn’t want to show her prescription because they want to do a mental health exam to pass her. My Question is will clonazepam show a positive drug screen on the DOT drug screen which i believe is a 5 panel. My friend said it doesnt show up but i would like to hear from a expert to eliminate any doubt in her mind

DOT drug screen includes testing for : Marijuana (THC), Cocaine, Amphetamines, Amphetamine Methamphetamine, MDMA, MDA, Opioids, Codeine, Morphine, 6-AM (heroin) , Hydrocodone , Hydromorphone, Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, Phencyclidine (PCP).

DOT drug test panel does not test for clonazepam – benzodiazepine class.

If you declare using Clonazepam or were tested for it by an employer for example – further investigation may be made if you are requesting Commercial Motor Vehicle CMV operation. Normally you will be accepted if Clonazepam is used for Anxiety with a prescription but it may be refused if Clonazepam is used for seizures.
