Avatar m tn Yes, I hear from ppl that have failed a drug screen, even while wearing a patch and claiming they have taken their meds as prescribed fairly regularly. I do believe you can have an inaccurate drug test results - but I can't always or often explain it. I suggest you have a long discussion regarding the results of the drug screen with your PMP. I assume she is keeping you as a patient. Please keep in touch and let us know the outcome.
Avatar n tn I was on a 75mic patch last year, every 48 hrs, and the pain doc informed me that Fentanyl would not show up on the typical drug screen. I was lucky enough to have never been randomly selected and I am subject to random drug tests. According to him Fentanyl can be found but the test is quite expensive so most screening stations just dont do it. If the drug screen you are going to take is job related I would not chance it.
Avatar m tn We agreed that with Fentanyl being widely abused, it would be appropriate to get a urine drug screen. Approximately 9 hours after the medication was allegedly administered, I tested negative for opiates. According to the FDA, the half-life of fentanyl is approximately 218 minutes. How many half-lifes would it take before the substance would no longer be detectable in urine? Who would I report this possible issue to? Thanks.
Avatar f tn My pcp doctor drug tested me and claims NO drugs were in my system ! She claims i broke the drug contract i signed and wont see me anymore. How is this possible ? I demanded a retest and was told no, the dr even suggested my caregiver was taking them or we were selling the stuff ! Im going thru withdraw now, alone with no weening just an abrupt stop cuz she wont refill the script and dont know where 2 turn.
Avatar f tn m sorry for what you have and are going through physically - and now the mental anguish of a failed UDS (Urinary Drug Screen). I hear your story so often here - and I hold my breath every time I have to take a UDS for fear my results will be misread - or a human error will occur. Most of us live in fear. UDS have become much more accurate in years past - the one factor science cannot control - the human factor, human errors.
Avatar n tn Prozac now 40mg and fentanyl 50mcg. and he is now talking in his sleep every night and constantly scratching at himself in his sleep.
Avatar m tn So anyways I am going to a methadone clinic because I got addicted to pain pills specifically fentanyl. Tje last time I used was january 6th and I have been 100 percent clean since then. I had a random drug screen that is a urine test that gets sent to a lab so its pretty thorough and I tested positive for fentanyl 3 months after i used last. Is there any explanation for this.
Avatar f tn A week later and while on Percocet 10mg 4x a day and fentanyl 25mcg/hr I went into withdrawl so sever that I had to go to the ER and almost needed to be admitted do to my heart racing at 180bpm. Then hospital ran a UDT and found nothing in my system, so they stableized me on dilaudid, and said that I was in withdrawl. Then next day I went back to my doctor and got another UDT which is very specific and it showed that I had a 30x more norafentanyl which is the main metabolite of fentanyl.
Avatar n tn Even though being dependent on a narcotic is different than being addicted, the physical symptoms are the same. Fentanyl is a very potent drug and can be a little harder to come off than other narcitics.
Avatar f tn How close to a urine drug screen would I take my last 500 mcg. Fentanyl Troche for it to show up in my urine?? I happen to have a REALLY bad month & I want to make sure that it shows up positive...I can also explain to my doctor the horrible month I've have (some new pain & also some SERIOUS mental health issues with my son that I'm sure did nothing but make my already bad near daily migraines all the more worse...
624839 tn?1221807899 It could also cause you to have difficulty in coordinating movements, and may lead to excessive sleepiness and stupor, and respiratory depression. If the Fentora is not controlling your pain adequately, the dose may need to be increased. But I don't think it's a good idea to mix it with Diphenhydramine.
Avatar f tn Yes, they are safe. Most of us with cirrhosis commonly have an endoscopy and colonoscopy every year or so to screen and monitor the status of our varices. I have taken miralax many times with no adverse effects. What can more problematic is any anesthesia type drug(s) you may be given. I assume this procedure is being performed by your gastro and she/he is aware of your cirrhosis?
Avatar m tn What were you seeing the doctor for? What prescriptions were you taking? What kind of doctor is he? Did you fail a drug screen or violate your pain contract in some way? Did he give you one last script to taper down from or to have while you look for a new doctor or did recommend a new doctor?
Avatar f tn I tried fentanyl patch but was very scared of the strength so stopped and wont go back there. How does talwin show on a urine drug test and how effective is it really. Also on tramadol er with my norco.
1417802 tn?1282173063 That is a HUGE jump up to fentanyl....and could be VERY DANGEROUS! I would recommend NOT putting that patch on! It sounds very strange...why wouldn't the dr increase the # or norcos you could take?
10363722 tn?1409603189 I borrowed one of her percoset that are 10 milligrams. I went to the doctor a couple days later and had to do a random urine drug screening. I am scared to death now. What happens if that percocet shows up? Will they totally take me off of all my pain meds? Are they likely to give me a second chance?this is not a typical thing that I do. I really need to be on my pain meds as I work two jobs and I'm on my feet all the time.any insight on this would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn I have been on oxycontin 40mil and oxycodone 10/325 for 13 years . I did a random urine screen for the second time in 4 months and tested positive for marijuana and didn't touch the stuff and never failed one . Now I'm so scared there going to stop giving me my meds and I have severe nerve damage due to chemo that was left running in me for 2 1/2 hours longer than supposed to be . I am burnt from the inside out from head to my feet. My question is can my Dr.
Avatar f tn suboxon can and does show up as an opiate on a drug screen however you have to specifically test for it, same with methadone, when i took someone close to me to get a drug test i was shocked that the professionals at a private doctors office that advertise drug screnings did not know that it took a specialty test, so we walked out and i went downtown to talk to an er doctor i used to work with, he gave my friend the test and sure enough suboxone was in her system, also when i was in a custody ba
Avatar f tn Use can also lead to opioid tolerance, where the body becomes accustomed to the drug and no longer responds to its intended effects. Traditionally, it had been thought that a decrease of analgesic effectiveness was caused by the development of a tolerance or the progression of a disease or condition. Doctors are now coming to understand that increased pain can be caused by this opioid-induced pain sensitivity.
Avatar m tn I am currently taking adderall, how will this affect an upcoming drug screen for possible job placement?
Avatar n tn So that is a very big incentive to stay clean, as if he is tested and found pos for even one urine or swab screen, he is taken OFF the list and put back to the bottom, for one year he has to attend groups and N.A. meetings ,etc. The STAKES ARE SO HIGH. Today, the clinic called us back, as we both have had "take home privileges": (6 bottles a week, the top of the line) and the Director herself met with us and told him that he had a positive urine screen last week for FENTANYL.

Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn on a typical drug screen what are all of the drugs they are testing for? opiates,thc ect. Im saying typical because I believe its only a 6 screen drug test.
906738 tn?1251010478 I know a bit about drug testing as for about 2 years I was in charge of drug testing and learned alot. Let me know if i am not understanding your question and I will help you more.
14468396 tn?1434674089 I have had the same doctor for 3 years, she put me on Fentanyl 25 every 72 hours and 4 norco 5/325 for break through pain. A month later, she upped the Fentanyl to 50 mcgs every 72 hours due to pain coming through even with the norcos. A month later, she upped it to the Fentanyl 75 mcg every 72 hours. A month later she upped it to Fentanyl 100 mcgs every 72 hours. That is where she stopped. I have been on that same dosage now for 2 years.
