IIRC, loperamide would come up as an opiate only on the less sophisticated screening testing assays. The more sophisticated ones (which should be performed on the sample once a screening test becomes positive) should recognize it for what it is. And any federally mandated urine drugs screens (such as for the DOT drivers) should be able to exclude this drug.

Besides, if giving a urine sample for a drug screen, always report all medication used within the previous 48 hours, including over the counter medicine.
