Avatar f tn If you suspect his sleepiness is related an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> his meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done use, a serum level <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> should help an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> determine whether or not this is true. Was he an IV (intravenous) user at any stage? He may have contracted Hepatitis C. I had it and it made me incredibly lethargic, depressed and apathetic.

Sometimes there's sloppy work or cross-contamination, particularly in the 'collection' phase. I'd request a retest.
267206 tn?1189759435 because of its much longer half-life, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> long does it take meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> clear from urine(wasn't my DOC, thank God)? I watched over a friend of mine c/ting from methadone; it was horrific. I ended up calling 911 after he had diarrhea and vomited incessantly for several days on zero sleep. He was severely dehydrated despite his attempts an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> replenish electrolytes and H2O. The ER doc said he was about 6 hours away from kidney shutdown when admitted for observation.
Avatar f tn I have always thought that drugs were detectible longer in your blood than urine but all the research I have done is stating that meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done and benzos can be detected in urine for up an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> 2 weeks (average 5-7 days), but only in your blood for 24 hours (2-3 days maximum). Has anybody had this happen an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> them? Where they have gotten a positive urine for a drug they actually an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>ok, but tested negative when they an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>ok a blood test?
Avatar n tn Recently my DR, who prescribed the medications, had me take a urine drug <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. If she is the one prescribing it, why would she order a drug screen?

Is this information correct? If so, why do they bother an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> do a blood test at all?

Avatar f tn I have drug <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> frequently due an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> being in the meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done clinic.I haven't used any other drugs in over two years and dont drink water or anything except maybe a 12 ounce diet coke when i wake up before i test. my creatinine levels in urine are always under 30 but lots of times under 10 when they are supposed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> be between 100 -130.what could be the cause of such low levels if Iam not diluting? Iam worried about my kidney function.
Avatar f tn anyan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> I go bi-monthly in December they gave me a urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span>. The only things I an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>ok was my Meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done which they prescribe me and 3-4 days back an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>ok a 30mg roxy and a 1mg xanex which is not prescribed an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> me. So an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>ok the oxy on Thursday &amp; the Xanex on Friday or Saturday and my urine test at the pain management was the following Monday. after all the years i've always seen my Dr.
Avatar n tn She slipped up on Thursday aug 7 and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>ok 4 5mg Vicodins. My question is - Will she <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> positive on a urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> on Monday aug 18nth? Thanks one and all for your response - the anxiety and fear is driving her insane and I would love an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> put her mind at ease or confirm her fears. Either way, not knowing his driving her stress levels through the roof. Thanks, again.
Avatar n tn The clinic an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>ok all my take homes because they said if I was taking my meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done the metabolite would san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> up. I have never in the 6yrs in the clinic, ever missed a single dose. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> is this possible? Please help me because I deserve my take homes.
Avatar m tn It shouldn't take long at all for meth<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>done an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> up in your urine...most meds taken in pill form are dissolved within 45 minutes, so I would think it would san style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>howan> up by then if not even sooner. It's an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>o bad that so many people misuse/sell medications and then try an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> scam docan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>rs...legit pain mgt patients are the ones who usually pay the price.

Avatar f tn the only thing using while you are there will do is risk failing your urine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>test</span> and gettin your dose cut in half or even kicked out.. all clinics are different. like gnarly said if it comes an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> dosing up or using i would dose up.. but you are going an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> have an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan> come off it eventually so lookin back on my stupid decisions i wish i was in your situation instead of mine. call your local dean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>x centers and ask if they take methedone patients..

Avatar n tn Hi! Congratulations on your pregnancy. I, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>toan>o, live in Ma &amp; an 3.5 + mos. clean off Methadone/Subutex. I'm familiar with both drugs.
