Hydrocodone and oxycodone drug test

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone and oxycodone drug test

vicodin

what about oxycodone showing up on a saliva drug screen
How long will it take me to pass the drug test? Keep in mind that oxycodone and potentially hydrocodone are the only drugs in my system. Btw, the drug test isn't for anything serious like court or probation.. I'm thinking about applying for new jobs.
This scares me very much, you would think it would scare me enough to get off but I am a true addict. My last go round with these pills I was lucky I had a liver function test and it was normal and I was taking twice as much as I do now. Sometimes I get a minor discomfort in the area of my liver, but no other symptoms. I do know the liver regenerates all the time and will start as soon as the substance is removed.
If I was to take oxycodone then hydrocodone and went to take a drug test will I fail for the same thing or two different drugs?
I abused the very same drug for 4+ years and while I questioned my sanity and longterm damage to myself.....in TIME (the 4 letter word we grow to hate)....I am healing and so will you. Initially, the reason for anxiety and/or depression can be attributed to a drop in serotonin levels....but as long as we don't put an opiate in our bodies.....we heal every single hour of our recovery. There are stages....and some people choose short term supplementation of an anti-depressant.
Go to the site listed above by Francoise. You will find people who are willing to share their experiences and help in any way they can. Consulting a physician is the obvious but as we all know not always the way we are able to go.
It sure helps to know that so many people like yourself have this in common. Due to back problems I've been taking hydrocodone for a few years and more and more to get pain releif. I know it's time to stop and thats how I stumbled onto this site. I'm like you If nothing else I feel the energy I sometimes get is worth the ADDICTION. I DON'T KNOW WHY BUT SOMETIMES IT DOES THE OPPOSITE. After reading your letter and some of the others I feel alittle better knowing that it can be conquered.
A certain portion of hydrocodone is metabolized to hydromorphone, so if you were doing a urine drug test on somebody who was taking hydrocodone you might also see hydromorphone in that person's urine. That's important to know.", to bring into your doctor and hopefully clear your name. Good luck. http://www.medscape.
Cut off all suppliers and people you can get pills from, destroy the ones you have and tell your doctor and pharmacist that you are an addict and that you are quitting. I wish I could tell you otherwise but none of us succeed unless we go for it 100%. Since you have done this 3 times I would advise that you start on aftercare now....whether it is NA or AA meetings, an addiction counselor, a pastor...whatever it takes...
i have not used drugs in the past thirty days, but this past friday i took a 10mg lortab. today is monday and i have to take a drug test. do you think the lortab will show up today?
Does anyone know if there is a reliable home drug test that can detect hydrocodone?
I stopped taking all medications then added them back one by one. Oxycodone is the culprit. I was surprised because I took it off and on often before back surgey, then intensively after surgery. I haven't taken it for months, but the other med I was on caused stomach problems- so back to oxycodone I went. While looking for info about this strange new reaction to a drug I had taken before without problems, I found the following info on MedicineNet.
But I was worried cause 1st, my pain contract states that I can just take the narcotics my PM prescribed, and 2, they have a specific test that test for oxycodone because one is a opiate and the other is a opiod. More or less one is derived from the poppy plant and if im not mistaken the oxycodone is a synthetic. Alot has to do when they test is the frequency of using the drug, mg used, when you stopped ect ect.
I am tested for schedule I and II meds like, Methadone, Oxycodone, hydrocodone and cannabis etc. The results of these tests are posted in my medical record and I am able to view portions of it myself online. I always test positive for oxy and cannabis, because those are the scheduled meds that I use for pain. I have a great doc and she is very compassionate. But she follows her role in prescribing my pain meds to a tee as she could lose her license if she did not.
I went in to take a random drug test and was told that my test showed negative for opiates. I just need to know if anyone has had this problem before. And if anyone has an answer why this would happen. Thanks.
I said no I take hydrocodone and he said no you have tested the last 2 times for oxicontin. I told him that was wrong and asked why it would show up if I hadn't taken any. Thats when he said it's prob. just a build up of the lortab. As you can tell I know very little about drug testing and the drugs. I'm a 57 year old woman that just has cronic pain in my back and butt due to many problems with my back.
I am 20yo and have been taking hydrocodone for a year and a half. I recently came to the realization that I am in fact addicted. I have tried to stop many times (each time gets harder) but I haven't been able to quit all together. I was taking 6-8 10/500 a day. The last few months I have gotten down to 1-2 pills a day. Then I had a stressful couple of months and went up to 2-4. Now, my life is starting to get back in order, and I finally told my boyfriend...
I do have severe arthitis pain and am a 51 year old woman. I have to cut down and recently cut down to 10 a day and have experienced physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. I have some clonidine and don't know how much to take for withdrawal. What is the recommended dosage. My goal is to eventually cut down to 4 a day, but have been very uncomfortable at 10. I also take effexor and trazadone for depression, but I am so depressed right now.
I have abused hydrocodone and oxycodone on and off for 8 years, with many drug free periods. My biggest problem is this God awful depression i get, but i always remember after 2 weeks, I always start to feel much better.
One place did the drug test right in front of me and got the results right then so we knew no one else touched it. That was such an injustice it makes me so mad to think some people are treated this way. I did have a drug test done one time by my PM doctor but my blood was drawn. I failed it because they said there were amphetamines in it. When I went back to the dr the following week I was horrified to hear this. I have never used methamphetamines in my life.
I have been taking four 30mg oxycodone, 3 Somas, and 2 mg of Xanax a day. (Obviously, I cannot work now.) I've had lots of tests, x-rays, injections, and all of this medicine while unknowingly being pregnant. When I missed my periods I thought it was because of all of the stress and medication. I have also been smoking much more than usual. I don't think it takes a genius to tell me I will probably have to terminate this pregnancy, but I just need to ask as many people as will reply to me.
the dr. that said i failed his drug test threw papers at me and cursed me ,he started me on opanaer40mgs.in sept08, he did not start me out on a lower dose first.i am worried about withdrawls i have copd and hep.c in remission, should i have ever taken this drug?should he have given me something more than hydrocodone10/500 to come off of this med. i know that i am not susposed to have that much acedimine, what do u suggest i do about this? this hydro.
With the controlled release of the med I'm taking now, things seem to be on an even keel compared to the abrupt ups and downs of the shorter acting narcotics like hydrocodone and oxycodone. As I've said time and again, all I want is a state of equilibrium in my life where everything seems to be safe and secure....and pain free! I suppose that's a lot to ask for as a human being? Somebody said above that they went fifteen years in hell before discovering a med that offered some relief.
If you are truthful they want a good pregnancy and good result and want you to be safe. If you do NOT tell them and they find out via drug test and they will test, yes child welfare will be called and it will be far worse. If you have the doctor on your side it will go much better. You are taking them for a legitimate reason. Do not let this slide. The doctor has to know, they will be very upset if you are not truthful. Please do this for you and the baby. If you try to quit..
The screening can tell the difference between hydrocodone and ocycodone and most tests look for both. And tuck is right on the money, the pain mgt centers are not so understanding as they are under the watchful eye of the drug enforcement agency. Now does your pain mgt center alway take a urine sample?
My doctor has prescribed 2 Vicodin per day to reduce the amount of Hydrocodone intake. On top of all this - I a have been on Prozac and Wellbutrin for 5 years and have a drinking problem (2-4 beers per day). I know I need to just STOP and I am trying. Reading the posts here have really helped! I am down to 1 Vicodin per day and 2 Wellbutrin and I try to not drink at all - IT IS HARD!!!!!!!
When I saw my Dr when she came back I ask her to give me a new test to prove was taking all meds, the morphine, Hydrocodone and the oxycodone. She called me in a week later and dismissed as a pain patient because she said my test was negative for anything. She said she didn't doubt I was taking my meds and she knew my pain was bad enough I would not be to live with my pain without my meds but that her hands were tied.
You can google a conversion drug chart and enter in what you're on and what the equivalent is for a different drug. I take plain oxycodone because I do not like taking tylenol. What'a really important is developing a relationship with this new doctor. When he changes your meds he should be available to talk to you off hours if you're having trouble. Best of luck, and I hope you'll keep us posted.
So many pills and all the crap that is in them are going thru liver and kidneys and you and something better change soon and you had better demand that it does. Do Not Drink the legal Drug (that kills etc but no script necessary!) Serious --you won't notice and it will creep up on you and kill you---maybe in your sleep but probably choking on you know what. If you are running out??IS it because of pain?Or? Keep posting here the advice (from others not me!
