Now, in November, I tested <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> again. I have not had an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> Meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done since February. I have read that Meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done stays in your liver and fat cells. I have lost 50 lbs since I got onto Suboxone. That is the only reason I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> think that it would an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> this? Otherwise, I don't have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> other explanation. I am extremely worried that this could get me kicked off Suboxone! Help!
i take 300 mg a day for various pain. now, 3 times my urine has shown meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done in it. i have never taken an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done. telling a meth clinic this and swearing on my life holds no water if you know what i mean. has this ever happened to an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan>one and if so what could an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> this?
I am really baffled as to why I tested <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> for amphetamines when I've never taken them or an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> cold meds that could test <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> for it. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan>one know why this could occur??
What is causing the false <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> for meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done? The urine test was done by an 11 panel urine tester. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> I ask for blood test? It ***** to be accused of something you have not done. The only difference in the last 2 years is that Lycra 50 mg 3x day and IB Profin every other day, I just started these 2 drugs in the last 4-5 weeks......that is the only difference.
More likely that the Oxy and possibly the Nuerontin or one of the other meds interacted to give a f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> for meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done....

No one should critisize them or look down on them bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> they are on meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> being on meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done is a hell of a lot better then what they were doing. So that might sound like methadone is the lesser of two evils, if thats the way you want to look at it and the way that most people look at it. But i am so over all the negativity that comes along with methadone. It is helping me to get well. It is helping to get my life structured again.

This forum is more for people trying to get off of drugs or that have gotten off them. I was on meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done for man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> years and am so glad I broke free. Some peple may need meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done for life but man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> don't. The NaMa board is more of a place for questions like this. They love to talk about methadone and different types etc. It's not a very recovery friendly forum though as they don't like to talk much about tapering or getting off.

Some drug testing companies will either have a doctor (or other medical professional) personally interview those who fail a drug test to determine if there was a potential f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span>. if you do receive a failing grade (actually referred to as apositive” on your drug test—this is one test you do not want a positive—you want all negatives) on your drug test, ask to be retested with a confirmation or secondary test.

Sounds like a f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> test to me - the methadone should have shown up as opiate not benzo. The additional testing should come up with methadone/opiates. How long before the test did you take the methadone? It may not show up but obviously something messed with the test. Hopefully you've learned your lesson and will take your recovery seriously from now on. I once tested positive for opiates when in treatment and swore I didn't take an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan>thing.
Percocet is a synthetic opioid. In order to have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> U/a a lab test called a GC/MS or Gas Chromotography/mass spectrography has to be done and the time from the last dose needs to be considered.
I was talking to a nurse today and she said that I should ask my doctor about Phenergan but when I called clinic and said they told me it was on the do not take list. I then ask why if it would an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> a f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> for benzo or bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> like soma it to od on methadone with that and she would not tell me so I was wondering if an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> of you may know an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan>thing, I am just wanting to find something that will help my tummy. I eat zantac like crazy 3 or 4 150mg a day.
and would an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> of these practices an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> a release into the bloodstream and ultimately to the urine producing a f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> ??? My daughter is on house arrest and drug tested regularly.... she has had a false positive once and the GCT proved it to be clean urine.. and not too long ago she had a false positive for THC and it was sent out for GCT and it came back clean... she also went immediately from probation to a hospital and had them do a test which also came back clean...
I believe there is a post below talking about a f<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>lse <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>positive</span> urine analiysis due to certain antibiotics. There may be some other useful information for you within the replies. There could have possibly been a mistake at the lab which tested your urine. Unfortunitly most DR's will not give a repeat test for a urine which comes up without the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>medicationan> your supposed to be on.
I recently went in for my refill at the pain clinic and tested positive for percocet and honestly have not taken it in over 2 weeks and it was prescribed before the pain clinic.

She does not believe me bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>causean> of the prior thing with my regular Dr. but I am not Dr.
Seems to me like you would be one who would need to taper off of meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done/suboxone. I have used meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done for the past 4 years and and I have been going cold turkey for the past 10 days and am just now starting to get the shakes and stuff under control....I am sorry to be so blunt but methadone is evil to ME..and I too have done oc's and vic's and perc's and tabs and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> other thing with codeine in it. someone will come along soon to give you better advice..
Is meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done an effective treatment for someone who was addicted to narcotics for about 3 years? Is it normal to be perscribed 30 to 40 pills every 2 weeks to take home? I was under the impression that in order for it to work, that an addict should be in a 12 step program and have counseling? I didn't think it was legal for a family Dr. to prescribe methadone an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> time they wanted to, that it was to be supervised. How an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>canan> it be given to an addict without an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anyan> supervision?
