Common Questions and Answers about Urine test oxycodone 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.
we had a urine test done which came back positive. I need help understanding the results. the results cutoff point is 100 ng/ml however the results were much higher(in the thousands). What does this mean. we need to know how many pills they took. Can anyone please help?
With all the posts inquiring about false negative urine test I wanted to put this in my journal for reference. When this issue comes up I always have to research the information so it is easier to just add it here in my journal. It is unacceptable that this is happening to anyone who religiously takes their pain medications. When they are tested and then fired because their test are negative for the medications they are prescibed it is unfair.
I go to PM monthly for 5 yrs now. I have had numerous urine drug test as per contract with them. This last one came up positive for Vicodin and lorazepam, these are meds I don't take at all, I am on 60mgs of OxyContin 3x's a day with 10 mgs of oxycodone for breakthrough pain 3x's a day as well. I am also on .5 mgs of alprazolam for severe anxiety 1 every 6 hrs so I can not understand how those other drugs came up positive when I know for a fact that I did not ingest them.
I have been tapering my amount of Oxycontin for about a month now. I am down to 10mg in the AM and 10mg in the PM. My doctor had me taking them three times a day before. I really feel the difference with the twice a day dose. He is having me cut down 10mg every week. I was fine until this week. Does anyone have any advice for me? I can not stand the weekness in my legs already and I am not finished tapering. I am really afraid of cutting down to once a day on Tuesday.....help!
It's always a urine test but was given a saliva test a few weeks ago and it showed a trace of oxycodone. He has been clean over 500 days and is adamant about it being a mistake. He had a hair follicle test performed but the court won't accept it because it supposedly only shows chronic use, not a one time use. Wondering if anyone knows of anything that could cause a false positive for oxycodone or have experienced a lab mix up?
A few weeks ago I went to my Pain Doc for my back pain after being on Butrans. My urine tested negative for opiates and so the doc sent my urine out for further testing. My doc would only give me a 1 week Rx and it took longer to get the results of the test. It really sucked sitting in his office after peeing in a cup and having my doc look at me like he did and talk like I was selling the patches or something. Have you thought about getting your hair tested?
I'm wondering if anything could have effected this urine test. The fact he refused to retest with blood test bothers me. I take my relationship with my physicians very seriously & I know how difficult it can be to find great PM physicians. But without trust & mutual respect there isn't the right relationship. Anyone have thoughts on how this test came back like this? I've worked in the courthouse & we use urine tests because they're cheap.
MY PERSONAL DIARY OF OXYCONTIN WITHDRAWAL. May I briefly fill in a little background.I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
he likely meant the level of Oxycodone (bright color if wet test) was so high he mistook it for you taking Oxycontin that wuold give you higher levels of oxycodone and then they suspect you are taking it more than just to reduce pain, but to feel high.
So to clarify, I have been on pain management for 4 years, he has messed with my long acting medication but I've always been on oxycodone for my short acting dose. Recently in pregnancy he changed me to oxycontin and oxycodone, two months ago, and it was planned to d/c all pain medication in my late second trimester.
i have not used drugs in the past thirty days, but this past friday i took a 10mg lortab. today is monday and i have to take a drug test. do you think the lortab will show up today?
But I was worried cause 1st, my pain contract states that I can just take the narcotics my PM prescribed, and 2, they have a specific test that test for oxycodone because one is a opiate and the other is a opiod. More or less one is derived from the poppy plant and if im not mistaken the oxycodone is a synthetic. Alot has to do when they test is the frequency of using the drug, mg used, when you stopped ect ect.
I have had other negitive urine test while taking oxycodone but what got the pathologist's attention is a urine sample taken on the day that the cath was removed at the end of a pain pump trial did not detect what daladuid leaves. He verified that it would have been detected with the 10 panel test that they had done. Now he is looking at my other negitives and has doubts. Either there is something keeping detection from happening or their tests are flawed.
It's easy to have the medications in your system every month by taking a dose or two the day before your appointment. the urine test is only showing what medications are present, and nothing more. It's very costly to do a "level" check, and simply isn't done at the pain clinic I attend. i think random pill counts would be a great way to see if patients are complying with the "rules". Any missing pills would raise a red flag immediately.
I guess I wasn't clear enough, I am taking the medication and can not figure out why it would come up negative. He did a urine test first which proved positive for opiates and then he did a blood test right afterwards and that came up negative. I am just very confjsed, He discharged me as a patient which is just not right. Thanks for your input.
I told him that expected the urine test after the blood test negative and over a decade of strict pain clinic protocal put me in this mindset. I think maybe my PC called him and told him how upset I was I don't know, but it wouldn't be out of character for her to do that, she too is a wonderful Dr.
This ensures there is no drug diversion, When the test came back see would show me the results, Oxycontin does show as oxycodone and the Norco shows as hydrocodone, One time I hadn't taken my norco 6 days before I saw her and she asked why I wasn't taking my Norco. it tests for THC, AMPHETAMINES, BENZOS, HEROIN, COCAINE, METHAMPHETAMINE and many other drugs, These were not cheap urine test. They cost over $300.
I am drinking water all day long as I don't want to get dehydrated and because i know it is healthy to constantly be flushing your body with water. I also did a 24 hour urine test which showed my urine output. and i think they said it was a slightly high amount, but nothing outrageous. Again, I really appreciate your time and input and care to this situation.
Substances Causing False Positives According to a report by the Los Angeles Times New Service, a study of 161 prescription and over the counter medications showed that 65 of them produced false positive results in the most widely administered urine test.
I don't understand what the cut off levels mean for a urine test and blood test. I seen one that states cut off level 2000 for oxycontin but that was all I seen. Are the cut off levels the same for blood tests as for urine tests?
Since the beginning of 2012, random urine drug screens along with another urine test to measure if the correct amount of the prescribed narcotic level is within your urine are of routine now, expected, no less. Ok, I get it, I completely understand the DEA is coming down with guidelines being severely strict on physicians. So, this day was no different. He gives me two months supply of prescriptions and on with my day I went.
i do not know for sure,, are you talking about oxycontin,,,or oxycodone w/ tylenol.?...and if you are talking about oxycontin...are you taking them whole or do you crush them.?..
If you are taking meds that are not prescribed to you, this is actually a felony for both you and the person who is lending/selling these to you. If your Dr. calls you in for a random urine test and finds medication not prescribed in your system, then you can be dismissed immediately without anymore medication and then have a mark on your record where no other Dr. will prescribe pain meds to you.
I have been taking OxyContin and oxycodone for a very long time. I have had over sixty surgeries in my life and am only fifty years old. I was dropped from my pain management doc because I tested positive for pcp, marijuana, and amphetamines. I have never used pcp or amphetamines in my life and haven't smoked marijuana since I was nineteen. The pain care doc wouldn't even listen to me when I said that the test was inaccurate. That was a saliva test. Went to a new doc.
Is there anything I should be aware of before I go. Also is the drug test blood or urine? Tell me any info anyone has as to what to expect.
I have seen the same pm doc for 5 years we do random drug tests I have never had a dirty UA in 5 years always took 30mg oxycodone and 80mg OxyContin recently I lost my insurance so I can only afford my 30mg oxycodone which yes caused me to use a roommate of mines morophine but I just did a UA and it came back positive for heroin this make no sense I explained to my doc something had to have gone wrong I mean this same lab lost my UA's two times I told her when this test came back I would test ri
People who are on Sub usually have to stay off it a few days to get anything out of something like Oxycontin. If you're addicted to Oxycontin (or any other opiate) you have to be in moderate to severe withdrawals before being inducted onto Sub or the same blocking action will block what Oxycontin you have in your system and throw you into what's known as precipitated withdrawals.
For example, someone on Oxycodone often has small levels of hydrocodone in their urine, as oxycontin and sometimes oxycodone has up to a 1% impurity of hydrocodone. Hope this helps others with the same question....
