Hydrocodone in urine test

Common Questions and Answers about Hydrocodone in urine test


Avatar f tn Had old 10 mg of opana from script 2 yrs ago left over when switched pain has been pretty bad so I took them in place of my oxycodone for a few days no help. Will they show up on a urine test 5 days after I stopped taking them?
Avatar f tn A certain portion of hydrocodone is metabolized to hydromorphone, so if you were doing a urine drug test on somebody who was taking hydrocodone you might also see hydromorphone in that person's urine. That's important to know.", to bring into your doctor and hopefully clear your name. Good luck. http://www.medscape.
Avatar f tn I have severe Gastroparesis and am on GJ feeding tubes. I was in pain management, but got kicked out because hydrocodone wasn't showing up in my system. I did a DNA test and I don't metabolize opioids and with all the liquids that run through my body with feeds, I feel like it dilutes my urine. Is there anyone that can help me document or verify this. I'm distraught.
Avatar n tn I ran out of it, I took a couple of my mother-in-laws hydrocodone(lortab). I have to take a urine drug screen. Will they be able to tell the difference between the two opiates? I know I should not have taken a script that is not for me but sometimes the pain is almost unbearable!
Avatar n tn I am addicted to hydrocodone, i will be given a drug test to check for opiates and i was wondering how long will it take to get this painkiller out of my system, and what can i do to make it happen faster. also i want to know what the easier way to get off them is?
Avatar f tn Is there any reason a hydrocodone urine test would come back negative if the meds were being taken?
Avatar m tn omg i am on Hydrocodone and when the doctor take a urine sample and test for it. It never passes the test though I take 3 times a day every day and have for years for cronic pain for osteo arthuritis. I am soooo upset I just went to the dr this morning as she has me return every three months for my refill prescriptions. She hasn't done an urine for months until today. She said she is going to take me off this because doesn't believe I am taking it.
Avatar n tn I have a urine test , trying to wean off . How long does hydrocodone stay in urine before considered being clean? Is it 72 hours or longer.Trying to get clean and get job!!
Avatar m tn m taking hydromorphone on the side. In fact, have the testing company evaluate the QUANTITY of hydromorphone in my urine, and you will see that there is only a small amount, appropriate to what the HC metabolized into.
2016728 tn?1328358841 If you have taken the medicine, they will show up on he urine test. The only way the test will be.....negative, is if you do not take the meds.
5769649 tn?1373931353 in a urine test will tylenol 4 and oxycodone show up as in the same family?reason i'm asking is in may i was told that i had tabs in my urine and i have not taken anything but my oxycodone and tylenol 4 !so i'm wondering if the tylenol 4 showed up like lortabs ?i honestly haven't taken any and i'm worried i might get kicked out of my pm clinic and i couldn't live without my pain meds!!!i have had 4 back surgeries and about 20surgeries on my stomach !!
Avatar n tn If they do a serum testing, they can differentiate between Lortab and Vicoden because of the amount of hydrocodone and the filler ingredients by the levels in your blood, but in a urine test, they can not, unless they do a gas chromotography. The GC breaks it down by the metabolites left in your body and the amounts of each chemical. If you don't have a valid prescription for either drug, and you are taking both, you will get caught if they use GC testing.
Avatar f tn Check ur messages i private messaged you
Avatar f tn I've taken hydrocodone for years, pain management doctor requires urine samples and I've never ever had one show up as morphine. That is very strange...I did test positive for oxycodone once, but insisted on a retest and it came back just the hydrocodone in my system.
Avatar n tn This would be a great time to ask your doctor to discharge you from the pain clinic. You're going to be discharged anyway but if you ask first they might treat you with some dignity. When you post something like you did above, then you no longer need the services pain management provides.
Avatar n tn Hey for blood and urine tests, pills are out of your system in about 5 days max. When I got into rehab from the hospital recently, I was in the hospital for 5 days, when i got to rehab they pee tested me and woke me up in the morning and blood tested me. To my suprise, everything was out of my system other than the marijuana which stays in your system a while.
Avatar n tn For some reason it fails to show up in my urine dryg screen. I take all my medications the way I should every day. 4 Hydrocodone 10/500 mg 4x day, Xanax 1 mg 3x day and Soma 350 mg 3x day. I have failed my drug screen test 5 times ans all 5 times I loose that Dr. Please tell me if their could be a medical reason for it not showing up? I'm so tired of having to find new Doctors when that happens and them looking at me like i'm miss using my medications. HELP!
Avatar m tn I have made up my mind that Im done with hydrocodone and I have a drug test comming up I would like to know what I have to do and how long does it take to get it out of my system (urine)
Avatar f tn I believe that hydrocodone is the component that is in those 2 medicines and Norco. What made my test show positive for hydrocodone? How do I prove my innocence? Now because of this. the new doctor is only prescribing 2 Opana per day instead of the 3 that I had been taking, and the paperwork that comes with the meds says to take 1 every 4-6 hours. I used to take 1 in the morning and 1 at night and if I was up moving doing anything that would cause pain I would take one in the afternoon.
356518 tn?1322263642 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]. For example, the unexpected absence of one of the above opioid analgesics upon testing can be due to rapid metabolism in a patient rather than therapeutic noncompliance or drug diversion.
Avatar n tn Seems like it could go either way given the time frame.I failed a urine test once because they found metabolites (breakdown products) of the drug in my system not the actual drug, valium.
Avatar f tn This is true. Most people are surprised to hear that the lab can tell the difference between hydrocodone and oxycodone, but they can. The metabolism of each opioid leaves traces of metabolites and other chemical byproducts. By assaying the levels of these substances in the blood or urine, the lab can determine, with some degree of certainty, which particular medication you're using -- codeine, oxycodone, morphine, hydromorphone, etc.
Avatar f tn MY F/U POST IS PRETTY LONG SO ITS BROKEN UP IN PARTS, THIS IS PART 1: Well - it kept eating and eating and eating to the point were I wasn't sleeping, spending all night researching how I could test for HYDROCODONE when I don't take, don't WANT TO TAKE IT and in 14 yrs in Pain Management I've never NEVER tested 'dirty'.
Avatar f tn I was asking about how it showes up in a urine test because i had a round tabke dissection with some of my medical friends and i thought it showed up as a benzo. I worked in surgery for 12 years. Anywho, I like my hydrocodone but im hateing tramadol er. Before going to pm Drs i was being treated by my GP for 10 yrs of my pain managment. I was on tramadol short acting and hydrocodone. I alternated them through out the day. Wel my PM DR wont keep me on two short trem pain meds.
5621633 tn?1371088110 Cut back on the amount of hydrocodone you have been taking now. if you cut your Mom's pills in half, it should bring the levels back down before your urine test. But, don't do this again or you will "pay the piper". Hydrocodone is a controlled substance. You should have contacted your doctor when the meds you were taking weren't controlling the pain. He/she could've upped your dose and you wouldn't have this problem. Is "Norco" hydocodone...
Avatar f tn There are many posts here about false negatives. Please search. Too often a lab sets its detection level too high, so a small amount of hydrocodone goes undetected. Everyone metabolizes opioids based on their body's ability to create certain liver enzymes, called CYP450. Generally, these tests check opioid metabolites. If you are a poor metabolizer of hydrocodone, you're going to have less metabolites in your urine. Also, people with kidney disease under excrete these metabolites.
Avatar f tn I see my Primary Care (PC) MD for all of my prescriptions including pain meds. I have a pain management doc that I see every 3-6 months tho, and the Pm doc makes the recommendations that my PC follows. I am in a pain comtract with my PC. Because I use Med Cannabis we agreed that I could continue without being kicked out. We just lined that item out of the contract and both initialed it. She has me do urine tests randomly. She follows some sort of protocol on this.
