Urine test results methadone

Common Questions and Answers about Urine test results methadone


Could this be the cause? I am clean and have done nothing to warranty a diluted urine test and I am scared I may have a serious problem. All my urine tests since becoming pregnant have been this way. I told them I am pregnant and they seem not to care. The doctor just kept saying, "Whatever you are doing to dilute your urine stop!" She wouldn't let me talk or anything. I feel very discriminated against.
Anyhow I go bi-monthly in December they gave me a urine test. The only things I took was my Methadone which they prescribe me and 3-4 days back took a 30mg roxy and a 1mg xanex which is not prescribed to me. So took the oxy on Thursday & 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.
the only thing using while you are there will do is risk failing your urine test and gettin your dose cut in half or even kicked out.. all clinics are different. like gnarly said if it comes to dosing up or using i would dose up.. but you are going to have to come off it eventually so lookin back on my stupid decisions i wish i was in your situation instead of mine. call your local detox centers and ask if they take methedone patients..
) He works over an hour away from the courthouse and often he has to leave work early to go do a urine test. I can see how broken up you are about this. I still remember how painful it was. I wouldn't be able to sleep and spent all my time running around trying to help him with his case. Try not to do this. It's the lawyer's job. All you will do is hurt yourself. You need to sleep, eat healthy and try not to obsess over things. I know it sounds impossible to do, but try.
When I read about people putting themselves through torture to get off methadone (or other opioids), I wonder why they are doing it. Methadone in smaller split doses has no bad side effects, but when I have to dose once daily at a clinic I need considerably more methadone to "hold" me for 24hrs. until my next dose (back at the clinic EVERY DAY), and then I suffer from constipation, depression, no libido, etc.
Im gonna end up going threw horrible withdrawl soon and Im scared to death. Im on Methadone and Vicodin and He just Cut me off after one test comming back Negitive and I dont understand how it could. He called me a lyer and told me to never come back to his office. But there is no other Pain clinic in the area. WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE RESULTS TO COME BACK NEGITIVE when I TAKE THE MEDS????
What is causing the false positive for methadone? The urine test was done by an 11 panel urine tester. Can 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.
i have been told several stories concerning whether klonipin will give a positive result in a urine benzo test. i am going to be tested randomly and am taking klonipin, having switched from xanax, and was told that the klonipin would not show up in the test for benzos. i need medication for anxiety and am currently undergoing daily methadone maintanence and am not supposed to have benzos in my system.
If you have concerns ask to accompany him to the clinic and sit in on the results of his urine-test. They test a patients urine every time the dr. issues a neww RX.If he agree that theres no problem with confidentiality the dr. will advise you on his progress.
Patient is not taking the drug, whether for innocent reasons or because of diversion. 2. Test is not sensitive enough [urine too dilute]. 3. Urine belonged to someone else, was diluted or adulterated to avoid an illicit drug being detected. If you don't fall in the above categories and they are using the most accurate test - and your physician/lab knows how to read the results correctly - than sorry but your guesses are as good as mine.
I've been slowly tapering off of a 15 year Methadone maintainence program for about 2 years now. Roughly dropping 5 milligrams every month or so. About a month ago my dose was at 3 mgs. At that point I really didn't feel to bad during the day although the nights were horrible due not being able to sleep. At that point I decided to just stop the meth all together, rather than prolonging the agony of dropping from 3 -2, then 2-1 etc.
I did not Ignore it he ignored the message and I left messages at his office. He stated that my last urine test showed low meds in system..I said I came in on Oct31st and I ran out of meds on Oct 27th and told the PA that at the time, he brushed it off at the time. He said we need to do something about that, IT WAS THEIR MISTAKE..I went in on Dec 29th and the doctor would hardly listen to me. he said when I come back on Jan 12 if test show fine no problem.
HI there & welcome! Thanks for reaching out. So, can you tell us how long ago you left the urine without methadone metabolites in it? Also, what's your previous urine record like & your relationship w/ your counselor & clinic? (This might make all the difference in how this goes for you!) If you haven't gotten your results back yet you have time to come clean to them in a fully humble & honest manner it would probably weigh heavily in your favor. Yup!
I bought a urine test at my health food store yesterday that checks for Bilerubin in the urine (bad). There were 4 different colors on the chart. Mine came up between no bierubin & small amount. My husband's came up with no bilerubin, and he is the dry alcoholic! I know that's not a medical test, but it made me feel better for $4. I bought some milk Thistle yesterday, but I have to admit that I'm kinda afraid to take it. What happens when I get my period? I can't take Midol anymore.
hep C RNA qualitive test that didn't have much filled out on it -- not listing results or anything), but the methadone is obviously not working or he's suddenly taking it improperly. How do I approach this now? Obviously I need to do something here, since he's got to the point of showing me what's in his hand he's so out of it. When I saw it I walked away without much comment... but something's gotta give here. Help help me figure out how to approach this... please.
I need help getting off methadone. I also want to know what to expect. How long will the depression last? When do you start feeling better? I know this is different for everyone, but I need some guide lines. I got down to 10 mgs last week and felt really depressed, so I went back up. I started using pain meds for a legetimate reason. I had severe nerve damage in feet. Had several surgeries. Then it became a bad habit. I used for about 7 years (oxy's, lorcet).
I have run out of methadone before I got my act together and got in a program. The results were a terrible depression along with the other withdrawl symptoms. As a matter of fact I am dealing with depression now from trying to get off. Does anyome have any advice for that? Good luck.
ve researched misdiagnosed urine test so i know this can happen.5 to 10 percent from what ive found i guess i one of those unlucky 10 percent.
to research and help prove these tests are either inaccurate or there's something I'm doing that's eradicating or changing what the test looks for (I don't know if the urine cup test tests for the actual methadone or some metabolite evidence flag it supposedly leaves like some tests for some things do). Thanks! :( ???
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?).
I'm on methadone and at the end of the visit my dr told me I had to do a urine test. So he wrote me my scripts and then on my way out I had to go pee in the cup, then I paid and left. So what I'm asking is if something was wrong with my test would they call me back that same day or even the next day to come in and discuss it or would he discuss it with me at my next visit?
•A popular and effective way to beat the test is by substituting “untainted” urine for one’s own by carrying a concealed specimen into the bathroom. The only way to thwart this is by supervised urine collection (ie, a staff member observing urine leave the patient’s body and fill the cup). While this is required for forensic urine testing, it could be the ruin of a typical medical practice; it is upsetting for patients and demoralizing for staff.
All patients at the office I was going too had to have their test results sent to lab. on a monthly basis. Not until peoples ins. refused to pay for these did that stop. No need for them unless your tox screen comes up positive for something that you are not suppose to have in your system. This test will show up everything in your system including the amounts taken.
Mine FLAT OUT REFUSED TO.. I have been on Methadone a vicodin for 3 years or more and I took a urine test last month, The only one he has ever given me and It came up that I dont take my meds at all. I take my meds all the time like clock work, UNLESS I have to drive to the drs office or I know I have to take the kids somewhere cause I will not drive on them. He called me a lyer and that the drug tests dont lie. Well in my case they must lie cause I take my pills all the time.
What caught my attention was they did not test me for barbituates or methamphetamines but they tested for methadone? Anyways I show the nurse my state registry card that verifies I am legally prescribed methadone and she says "Ok no problem" she then tells the manager where I am trying to get the job that I tested positive but I am prescribed it. No big deal, or so I thought.
I am always looking for information on the effectiveness and accuracy of the drug test we have to endure. I have just come across this one from Early this year. It has alot of information on how the UA works and why they are inconclusive most of the time. I am including the link as I have not posted everything in the article. The VA study I have posted in my journal and refer members to was done in 2004 I believe.
I have been on methadone for 2 years. I am 5'5 and before methadone 125. In the last 2 years i gained 90lbs!! Yes 90. My doctor said that is was the mehtadone. I have detoxed off methadone, while the weight go away. I go the gym 3-4 days a week. and while on it ,could NEVER lose weight. PLEASE HELP THIS IS ALL NEW TOO ME.
Hi Again Goosebumpsmw, You can feel free to add on to your original post as unless you read your first one, this one doesn't make sense. It's rare to have three false negative urine drug tests. Your PM Clinic had no choice but to dismiss you. They are closely monitored and must follow the rules/guidelines set forth by the DEA and their practice. Again I am sorry that this has happened to you. I imagine you will have difficultly finding another PMP due to the three negative tests...but try.
