Oxycodone urinalysis

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone urinalysis


Upon further research it would seem that it does not affect the analgesia of morphine or oxycodone. Therefore the fact that ms contin doesn't help me with my pain is all me and my silly body. So, for all of my friends out there, we have all learned an interesting lesson.
my pcp said the ultram affects the lortab from showing up in the urinalysis. is this true? i have read that urine screenings are not very accurate and mistakes can be made. i would really appreciate any help with this. she also told me that if the lortab does not show up in a way she likes then she will no longer give me anything for pain ever.
What causes a false positive for hydrocodone in a urinalysis? My doctor recently took a drug test and it came out positive for hydrocodone. She said I am getting prescriptions from some one else and does not want me to come back to her practice. The only medications I take I get from her. I have fibromyalgia and am taken the follow medications prescribe by my doctor, trazadone, effexor, estrogen, endocet (perocet), oxycontin, iron pills, ondansetron, albuterol,astelin and thyroxin.
So this test now too has come back with the oxymorphone result along with my morphine and oxycodone. Is this ok in your opinion? I have read about it online and know that oxycodone will sometimes metabolize as oxymorphone and be picked up in urine even though it is considered a "minor metabolite". I think this is fine as other tests have come back with it while other tests dates have not. Is is just how my body is metabolizing before that particular test?
I see my pain specialist monthly. I give a urine sample each time. The doctor used to use "plain", or "generic" sterile urine specimen cups, and then send them to a lab for testing (his own lab, by the way! $$$). Three months ago the practice switched to the "instant read" type of urine test cups. They give the results immediately then and there.
I take morphine and oxycodone and my urine tests results are negative for the drugs. Why is this. I take the meds every 6 hrs and 8 hrs.
Why does tramadol show up as positive for oxycodone on an urinalysis?
Sensitivity and specificity of oral fluid screening and testing are acceptable, but subject to the same limitations of interpretation and confounding factors as urinalysis [Leavitt 2005]. •Urinalysis is unhelpful for detecting alcohol misuse or abuse [Moeller et al. 2008], and alcohol can be more hazardous in combination with opioids than many other drugs. The above list is certainly not all-inclusive [eg, also see, Carlozzi et al. 2008; Reisfield et al.
I went from 120mgs of oxycodone a day to 40mgs of METHADONE and even though its more addictive, Ive been on 40 a day for 6 months it all adds up to about the same. It works to an extent but not near enough and the pain breaks out even in the peak hours the methadone is suposto last. I hate to be upped in MGs here, I really do, but the way I figure it is if Im not getting high, and IM NOT, Its alrite. But is there an alternitive here I can be useing with the Opiates?
I am sure I am an addict I am on Fentenyl 100mcg every 3 days and have recently been switched to oxycodone 15 mg 4 times a day. I went from 10/325mg to 15mg. My question is how much of a difference between the 2 is it signific a difference or not I have 2 boys ages 12 and 8 and I want to know how big of a difference there is I am concerened they will see me in a drunken state. I want to shield them as much as possible.
eg, codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, methadone, buprenorphine, tramadol, and fentanyl. Individual patients may have genetic variants of the enzymes, or may be taking inducer or inhibitor drugs, that strongly influence opioid metabolism and, hence, their detectable presence or absence in urine (or blood, or oral fluid if used) [see, Carlozzi et al. 2008; Smith 2009].
So last June I go in and have a typical urinalysis. Took my meds the night before AS I ALWAYS do. Well, I go back the next appt and she says there was NO Pain Meds in my urine! WHAT!! And of course she has discontinued seeing me. I've struggled since trying constantly to get another physician and EVERYONE keeps turning me down. I don't know what to do! I could see if I had a history of fails, or doctor changes, or ANYTHING - But there has been no issues, ever!
Oxycontin is Oxycodone in the long acting formulation. Percocet is Oxycodone in the short acting form.... with some acetaminophen (Tylenol) thrown in it. Most ppl find this to be an effective drug. Your PMP went right to an average dose and ordered it TID (three times a day) instead of beginning on a lower dose at twice a day. He obviously wants to treat your pain effectively. It may make you a bit drowsy at first but this will soon subside.
If you do get into another pain management program, you may have to have a urinalysis drug test and may be called in for pill counts. It just depends on the doctor. You will have to follow their instructions to the letter or risk being kicked out again. This is just my opinion. I'm sure someone will come on later who could give you better suggestions. Do check back. Good luck and do check back later.
I knew I had an 8mm stone in there, saw a urologist today about it...urinalysis also revealed high creatinine and a good deal of blood (no bacteria, so no infection)...so my kidney(s) aren't doing so well at the moment either. I'm only 26, shouldn't have these many problems and so much pain. My back is killing me today...the lower right side but also in the middle with the burning and pins and needles spreading across my back. Ugh!
I feel so lucky that I don't have to have a contract. I never have blood work or urinalysis done. And I feel like I have more control over my medication. If I need to take an extra pill, I can without worrying. (Though I always email the NP and let her know if I make any adjustments, and she seems to be okay with this.) It seems like if you have a contract, it binds you and leaves you fearful if anything is out of the ordinary.
You probably do have IC if you have constant pain and urgency and nothing shows in a urinalysis. But if you have bad pain in your gut this points to some form of IBD if accompanied by certain bowel symptoms. Just a warning- I went on amitryptoline when I was trying to find a non-narcotic option for my pelvic pain. It made me exhausted and depressed. I was on a high dose though and had not had a proper diagnosis yet. So make sure that you diagnose before you medicate.
I have undergone several injections in my chest and have had multiple xrays and other tests done. Have passed every urinalysis and have only had him give me my medications. He did not believe me when I told him that the Opana was not working. He made me feel like a drug addict and questioned my ethics and my honesty. My question is now what do I do?? He is moving out of state anyway and this is his last month here.
I think I was given two Tylenol 3’s every two hours and one oxycodone every for hours. Needless to say, I wanted to die right then and there. The surgeon came in the next day in his street clothes on his day off. He was very nice and polite but still there was a part of me that wanted to slap him still because of what he put me through the last three years. We could have avoided all of this pain if he would have just recognized that my endometriosis was still spreading.
Unfortunately, I do have a question I hesitate to ask because it sounds as if I am a drug abuser or trying to trick my upcoming urinalysis. I assure you this is not the case, but I am afraid I messed up and need your help and/or assurance. Please bear with me... 1. In 2004, I was run over by a commercial snow plow. I eventually recovered, but was left with moderate to severe pain in my right sciatic nerve and throughout my cervical spine.
But starting around last month I haven't been sleeping, my arms throb all night and still into the day and my mother in law happened to have oxycodone 5's right at hand. I took probably more than I should have but not enough to even get withdrawls, I have never withdrawn from anything. But 3 days ago was the last of those I took because I'm scared they are going to test me at the hospital and I would die if they took Hunter. Today I had 1.
Once it is metabolized, heroin is, for all purposes, morphine. That is why I used morphine in my last post. If one were to do a urinalysis, heroin is only detectable as heroin for six hours after ingestion. There is one short living metabolite from heroin that is detectable for up to six hours. After that, the person will test positive for morphine. In the first six hours, the person will test positive for morphine as well, but further investigation will reveal the heroin.
I'm trying to think how I'm going to convince him that MMT(or other meds mentioned) might be a better alternative (to oxycodone) without him getting defensive or suspisious of my motives. That alone is worries me enough not to mention it at all.
I understand your frustration and fear but you have to be totally honest with him BEFORE he finds this out through a urinalysis. Maybe you could just tell him that you were really afraid and hadn't been honest about what you've been taking and that you didn't tell him out of fear. Hopefully, he'll be very understanding and can reevaluate what you really need. Personally, I won't take an extra pill or take anything even one minute early.
Have had CT scan, urinalysis, ultrasound, and a colonoscopy today. Like you, they have found out nothing to cause this yet. I had my appendix out many years ago, also. I thought, but was told no, that possibly adhesions from surgery since I have read that they do develop and cause this kind of pain after surgeries. Maybe this is a possibility for you, though. Hope you--and I--get some answers here soon! Going to a urologist next Wednesday.
I am really glad that I found this forum...I am currently in as state of shock over what just took place at my own pain management doctors office. I have herniated lumbar discs which have also caused nerve damage, degenerative disc disease and buldging cervical discs. I have been on morphine for about 4 years, extended release and instant release. Last month the doctor gave ALL patients a urine test and when I got there today he said "we have a problem"...
I also have noticed (of course it may just be me being overly sensitive as I just had my 1st urinalysis) that lately my doc has been treating me differently. I feel as if he's distancing himself from me, a bit standoffish & as if he's not taking me seriously. I swear it seems he's asking me the same questions over & over & I'm recounting my different types/levels of pain over & over & he's acting as if he's never heard them before.
I can see someone taking them if the parent is still abusing drugs, but I am not abusing drugs anymore. I am on the right path, and that feels good. Knowing that I could pass a urinalysis feels really good. As long as I stay the course, the babies and I will be OK.
