Hydrocodone in urine drug screen

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone in urine drug screen

vicodin

I ran out of it, I took a couple of my mother-in-laws hydrocodone(lortab). I have to take a urine drug screen. Will they be able to tell the difference between the two opiates? I know I should not have taken a script that is not for me but sometimes the pain is almost unbearable!
I have a urine test , trying to wean off . How long does hydrocodone stay in urine before considered being clean? Is it 72 hours or longer.Trying to get clean and get job!!
I am not a medically trained physician but I am a law enforcement laboratory technician who routinely handles evidence including specimens for drug screens. A drug screen is a complex thing and the higher tuned (more sensitive) it is the more complex it becomes. You see, drug screens can be adjusted to detect various trace amounts of many different types of drugs.
My question is, how long does Hydrocodone and Oxycotin show up on a blood and/or urine drug screen? Need the real deal on this, looks like I might get hit this week and I need to prepare if i can.
My heart goes out to you. I am very sorry to hear about your current situation. Unfortunately these errors in Urine Drug testing occur way too often. I have seen statistics that claim error rates can be as high as 70-80% with the majority of errors being human. I cannot guess why your drug screen was inaccurate. As far as your recourse you have little if any. Sadly when you signed the PM Contract it was to protect the clinic or physician and not you.
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.
Hello Lass,First off is this just routine,or is their some reason of diversion like due you work as a nurse ,and if so,are they checking only you or are you on a Methadone program and all they want to know is there any hydrocodone in yopur system to bebin with,as same not so bright addicts say that they are on this and that and when they run a urine screen,nothing shows up,even the drug that they say is their drug of choice.
can u fail a drug test, done with urine/ with no lab there, for morphine while taking opana er 40mgs. 2 times a day without taking any other pain meds.?
I have a upcoming drug test,I will have been clean for 72 hours prior to the test.I am taking total cleanse, drinking ua clean and detox tea.What are my chances of passing my test?Also is it true that a drop of bleach will give me a negative ua?
I'm anxious now as I have another app't in 5 days and I no longer have faith in drug testing, after never questioning all of my life in employment testing. I'm anxious to even see my doctor again knowing my chart is flagged. I have not changed any medications between the 2 tests, the only thing that I am aware of is I am also on Dilantin and my LFT's came back out of sight about the same time as this test and my labs were just repeated for that by my primary.
I'm sorry for the people that can't re-take the test, I think they should allow you to take the test again, let you put on a patch and then later do a urine test in front of them and see if the fentanyl shows up at that time. Instead these doctors that are testing patients and that are coming back with no fentanyl in their systems are just removing them from the practice and it just seems so cold.
HI, spook, question, do you know of a legal way I could obtain buprenorphine through an Aussie pharmacy? I've also heard that hydrocodone 7.5 mg with asprin is an OTC drug in Australia. That sounds too good to be true. Is it? I've considered taking my chances in Mexico, which might prove to be my best bet. It's just that you see these "onlinepharmacy" and "onlinepillbox" sites that promise you a legal way to purchase bup and other controlled substances.
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.
i recently changed drs due to moving and when i went to appt they drug tested my urine. she said positive for hydrocodone and asked if i took any loratab loracet, norco.....i have def not. I was positive for oxycodone, xanax, adderall....Those are my rx's . now I do have a rx for viibryd, an antidepressant, and for mobic for arthritis, and a high cholesterol drug......now im outta meds, and dr wont see me until results come back from lab.....what the hell????
I read on the internet under the drug name percocet (which I am on), that the drug is not detectable in the urine after 2 days of taking it. Had a friend once who had a drug test coming up and she quit using for 3 days, drank gallons of water and passed with flying colors (for what it's worth).
I have heard that oxycodone for some reason comes up negative in a 1st level, 5 panel drug screen. Something about the molecular structure (something I know squat about). If they however take the test to the next level it goes like this. A kind gentlemen who does forensic work for the DEA explained this to me. Beach is right a mistake using this method is "highly" unlikely. A sample is introduced through a hot injection port, which vaporizes the sample.
most are a standard 5 pannel drug screen- which test for-- marijuana (THC), cocaine, amphetamines, methamphetamines and opiates (heroin, morphine, etc.).
Metabolites have specific characteristics of the medication and are what a DR or Lab sees on a drug test or in a drug level) Hydrocodone comes up as hydromorphone metabolites. So if your DR is not aware that this can happen it will be seen as abuse of another medication they did not prescribe to you. I also wanted to mention that you will want to get a copy of your medical records.
So I see my doctor today and he says that my drug test showed only Soma in my urine and NO Vicodin. I told him I take the Vicodin every single day. He told me I was a liar and said he knows the truth and the truth was on that paper he was holding. He said I was probably selling them or I gave him someone else's urine (ewww!). I DID NOT!!! He was just mean. He said that paper would hold up in a court of law and it did not matter what I said. But I take my meds as he prescribes them!!

Hang in there it does get Easier and better over TIME!!!!! Ill be praying for you. God Bless..
Sorry Otis. In my journals I have listed different reasons why you might have a false-negative drug screen. I feel that it is written in Lehman's terms (somewhat easier to understand). It does sound like there was Hydrocodone but not enough. Your levels were too low. If you took your pill that day but it was the only one you took in a while, the test will show that you have not been taking them on a regular basis and that to some Doctors is reason enough to let you go.
In January i did a random urine drug screen I was hoorified at the results there were drugs in there I have never taken even an illict drug. My name wasnt on the cup it was placed by me in a room where there were several other cups no one checked the temperature. no chain of command. In february they filled my ms contin and in march now they cut me off and said i could get narcotics from another docter but still use them for epidurals and such.
Chronic pain is responsive to hydrocodone and to provide a concrete evidence that you are using this medication you can have a urine drug screen done. In regular users this screen should remain positive for two days. Also please ask your doctor or enquire at the lab, if they are using a hydrocodone specific product for screening, as the more common opiod screening for morphiods does not detect hydrocodone presence. Emphasize for the specific test. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
I read on the Internet that Paxil (or any SSRI drug) can cause a spike in blood pressure and possibly a stroke when mixed with Methadone. My doctor is now recommending Effexor in place of Paxil. Isn't Effexor also an SSRI? and to your knowledge, does it pose significant risk(s) when taken with Methadone? If so, is there an anti-depressant that can be safely used with Methadone?
After 6 hours the meds were low enough to be undetectable in a urine screen. Hope this helps.
Hey I heard the term drug screen. Will people not hire you if you have drugs in your system like percocet even if you have a prescip for them. Do they consider that failing the drug test. I am presently tapering off of percocet from a knee surgery, then got hooked, and I am trying so hard to get this job, and they just did a drug test. I havent heard nothing yet. anyone know......
It actually doesn't in a "standard" drug screen. It does pick up hydro, though. It was explained to me that the drug test only picks up the ones that transform into morphine. Oxy doesn't morph into morphine. They usually have to order a special test to pick up Oxy.
Hello GraceinChrist, Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. In my research of this subject for our members I have found numerous articles addressing the results of Drug Screens. Some are very detailed and come from reliable sources. If you search you can find them too. We would all like to believe that a false reading will not happen to us.... and that it is rare. Unfortunately false results occur more often then one would believe.
Did they watch you give the sample or were you alone in the restroom? You should always watch them put your name on the sample and seal it. That is the way I always had my clients do, to ensure proper idenity of the sample. They are not perfect, but some UA's are tampered with by the client if they are not watched. I am not saying you did, but again always make sure you are watched and you see your name on the sample. What state are you from?
