Avatar n tn Hi, I am very sorry this happened to you but it is getting all too comman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> these days. I suggest you ask the Doctor to do a blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> or you can order a h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ir strand <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>showan>s everything you have taken within 60 to 90 days. This can be put in your file to prove that you did have the meds in your system and there was a mistake made somewhere. This will help in finding a new Doctor. I have some articles in my journals about this if you would like to take a look.
1264863 tn?1391121793 I've heard of others who have put them an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan> their bikini area, however, again, to me that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>doesan>n't sound like the best place - if you dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>'t shave the area, the patch will probably not get a good adherance to the skin due to the h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ir and if you do shave the area, the chances of the skin being irritated or broken (accidentally) is higher, making it not a good locatian style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>.
Avatar n tn I think either he had an illicit drug or he isn't taking his meds as prescribed and he was not revictimized . He can always get a blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> or h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ir, but he better be squeaky clean. These PM docs do not have to help him and it is in the can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>tract you have to sign in order to be in PM. Good luck to him, he will need it.
1855076 tn?1337118903 we use urine tests because they're cheap. If we get any type of false <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>, though, they either blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> or h<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ir <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>.

I'm not naive &amp; I have respect for the medical community &amp; legal community &amp; most importantly myself. I'm just looking to see how best to manage this.

( In Mass. there has been scandal over an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>e of the state chemists tainting drug samples in the crime lab. It happens.) I have no clue why mine came out this way. I am bothered by it because it speaks to my integrity. &amp;I take my pain management very seriously. There are cases of false negatives or positives; it happens.

5330576 tn?1366530599 also the metabolites generated by previous day’s dose are often washed away in urine or are too low to be detected by urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>.

However, urine tests are cheaper and hence more widely used. You could ask your doctor whether blood or hair test could be dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>e in your case. Take care! The medical advice given should not be can style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>onan>sidered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
