Oxycodone and urine drug screen

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone and urine drug screen

oxycontin

to the original question, for say a urine drug test, a regular user of oxycodone or other opioids it will take 3-6 days to leave your body completely, aim for a week to be safe, the half-life of oxycodone, meaning half the drug out of your blood stream after taking a dose is roughly 3-4 hours and the "high" lasts around 5 hours.
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.
It is not rare for a urine drug screen to be in error. Unfortunately like so many other ppl that have erroneous drug screen there really is no recourse for you. I wish I had better answers for you. Talk to the HR Department or your boss. Ask for more information. I too am curious as to what was found in your urine. Good luck to you.
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.
Oxycodone is a semisynthetic opiate and propoxyphene is a synthetic opiate. Does the test screen for particular drugs or just classes of drugs? Since you do take an opiate, maybe that accounts for the false positive result.
Most screening tests used to test for opiates, often fail to catch oxycodone. Also, immunoassays and urine drug tests specific for oxycodone often show no drug or its metabolites even though the patient is regular in taking oxycodone as prescribed. Use of slow release or controlled release oxycodone often gives false negatives in tests used specifically to screen for oxycodone. Hence, a screening test for oxycodone metabolites should be done if you are regular with your medication.
I have recently had two urine drug screens come back showing trace amounts of Oxycodone. I have NOT taken this drug. I suffer from severe chronic pain in my back and have been prescribed Dilaudid for almost 3 years, which I take regularly on a daily basis and without it I am totally bedridden.
Standard Drug Tests Sometimes Miss Oxycodone Another problem is that most standard drug tests have a substantial false-negative rate for oxycodone (OxyContin, Percolone, Roxicodone) an opioid drug that's been associated with high levels of abuse. In some cases, a person could be taking oxycodone and the routine drug screen may miss it and report as negative. Oxycodone is also found in the medications Percocet, Roxicet, and Tylox.
I am glad that you found us and took the time to post. However I am sorry to hear about your inaccurate drug screen results. First of all urine drug screens have been known to be as high as 60-80% inaccurate. Many times it is human error. It happens to a lot of ppl...but when it actually happens to us it very, very disturbing. You may never discover the reason your test was inaccurate. The lab will not admit there may have been a mistake made.
I am nor sure I understand the question regarding the methadone and the oxycodone. is he prescribed both? is he in a methadone program and taking the oxycodone and benzos? It is very important for him to talk to his Doctor and tell him honestly what he has been taking and what dosage so the Doctor can help him ween off at a safe rate. it is not advisable to do this himself, he really needs the Doctor's assistance in tapering off these medications.
The standard tests are a one step rapid qualitative immunoassay for the detection of opiate and opiate metabolites in urine. The cutoff concentration for this test is 2000 ng/ml, as recommended by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the U.S. National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA). Prior to December 1, 1998 the cutoff level was 300 ng/ml but was raised in order to reduce the possibility of false positives from poppy seeds.
will it show up if being tested for opioids or just synthetic opioids? i came up positive on a drug screen for oxymorphone and i was perscribed to percocet.. can u please explain?
Recently i was dx with a degenerative autoimmune disease of unknown type, they are still going through the tests and studies, but i had reconstructive surgery on my knee and was placed on vicodin which i took as prescribed, this was before my doctors knew i had something degenerative, and was placed on pain management after 4 months of physical therapy due to worsing of pain and inability to function normaly in society.
I wanted to know what the ultrasound showed so I peeked, I've been in this field for 10 years so I know how to read a chart. Anyway I saw that a urine drug screening was ordered and sent out. I've never know that to be a common test ordered unless something is expected. I'm just feeling really uncomfortable with this ob now. I am angry because I was honest from day 1 that I was in pm and he never said anything, then I try to stop by myself and instead of support I get, well...
Every 2 weeks I get drug tested at my doctors when I get my script for suboxone and this week was the second time that my urine showed a positive for oxycodone and I did not take that or anything like it! I started taking chantix recently, i occasionally take ibprophen 800, i have taken some sudafed for a cold i have (i know that can cause positive for amphetamines). What in the world is going on?! what can I do to prove I didnt take it?
We need to have a contract with our docs just as they have with us only we need one assuring us they will not abandon us over one false negative result. 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.
I am perscribed 5mg oxycodone 1-2 tablets per day up to six a day what is an acceptable drug urine screen for this amount? mine was as follows Oxycodone 261 H < 50 ng/mL Oxymorphone 658 H < 50 ng/mL....
I don't know what Opana is but perhaps it is like oxycodone and does not show up in a cheap level 1 5 panel drug screen. Tell the doc to do the next level GCMS test. Be confident and demand the GCMS test, because you KNOW that you were taking the drug. You WILL test positive there, and you might end up teaching the clinic a lesson, to use the right drug screen before making the wrong decision based on a cheap test.
I have said that if I am ever in that situation I will have a 2nd test performed by a trusted and recognized facility immediately after or before any drug screen. So please keep us posted and let us know how you are doing.
This is fine, oxycodone works well enough, but the family practice office she visits each month (part of a large and well-respected university hospital system) has begun routinely collecting a urine sample at each visit, and always adds a full toxicological screen to the monthly blood tests we have done at an independant lab (Quest)... Again, fine, if a bit degrading... The problem is - these nearly always show NEGATIVE results!!!
I have never been told what kind of drug test is actually run and am curious. I have been wanting to ask my doctor but feel that if i do then he is going to think that im takeing something im not supposed to. Id like to ask someone who knows on here exactly what kind of drug testing are actually run. My doctor has never said or went over my results with me and ive never asked but would like to know and i am affraid to ask.
The new doctor wanted a drug screen which I had no objections to. He did give me my refills and said we would discuss the results of the test on the next visit. On the next visit he informed me that my drug screen came back negative. I had been out of the perocet for 2-3 days prior to seeing him but had used my fentanyl patch. I asked him to check my back so he could see that I had it on but he refused.
She started tapering off 6 weeks and is now on no opiates. Then she has 18 days to get through drug free before she goes to new state-of-the-art pain clinic that does give opiates. Does anyone out there know if she will still get a positive tox screen? How long do you have to stay off the meds before you don't show a positive? I cannot believe they found a trace in the first screen.
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.
The values are readily available on the www. With regular use of oxycodone containing pain medicines,most urine drug screens should remain positive for oxycodone for 1-2 days and in some rare cases 3 days. A small percentage of ppl metabolize oxycodone more rapidly than normal, but this should not affect the ability of the screen to detect the drug in urine. You physician can answer this question more accurately.
At this time, there is no scientifically validated relationship between the amount of drug taken and urine drug concentration. Therefore, a UDT cannot indicate the amount of drug taken, when the last dose was administered, or the source of that drug.
I had the same thing happen to me a few months ago, except my urine tested negative for both of the opiates that I'm prescribed (methadone and oxycodone). My doctor stated that the urine cup that I used must have been defective, and that was the end of it, lucky for me (I did offer to give another sample, which the doctor declined to accept, maybe due to the cost of the "instant result" test cup?).
hahaha you made me laff my friend--sayin "jonesin" aint heard that since the old days. sorry bout your job--drug screen??
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.
