Common Questions and Answers about Methadone metabolite

Avatar n tn There has been 4 occassions now that my urine tests come back positive for methadone but no methadone metabolite. This has occurred even when I was getting dosed daily at the clinic. The clinic took all my take homes because they said if I was taking my methadone the metabolite would show up. I have never in the 6yrs in the clinic, ever missed a single dose. How is this possible? Please help me because I deserve my take homes.
Avatar f tn // Im 38 weeks pregnant and am on methadone, Peds have told me to BF as ity helps with neonatal abstinance.
Avatar f tn My daughter has been on methadone for several years but also has borderline personality disorder. Because she has sleeping issue and is late alot, and because she has ibs and has had to be dosed in the car or go in after an accident, she is being kicked off the program. She is on 120mg and will be detoxed in 30 days. I am not saying that she was not in the wrong about things but this is very sudden.
Avatar f tn My boyfriend is on day 5 of withdrawing off of 240mg of methadone. All he does is sleep, probably to avoid all the pain. He has restless legs, runny nose, diarrhea, restlessness in his sleep, and is only able to sleep at all because an urgent care MD gave him a 5 day supply of lorazepam to help with his anxiety. No MDs will take him on as a patient because he has no insurance so he is stuck withdrawing. He has herniated discs so he is in severe pain with nothing to treat it.
Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Methadone and its major metabolite, 2-ethylidene-1,5-dimethyl-3,3-diphenylpyrrolidine EDDP, are often measured in urine as part of a drug abuse testing program. Hence It can be detected in urine if you are taking it. Conversion is to EDDP and not alcohol and its presence is taken as drug abuse. Take care!
Avatar n tn Withdrawls dont really kick in until day 3 of detox because your saturated with the buildup of methadone metabolite. Does this give you any clues as to how toxic it is? Its the duration of withdrawl that wipes you out. You just get tired of fighting. After a week your beat up pretty bad, after two it gets hard to stand. After the 3rd week you'll swear you'll never do it again. I only made it to 3 weeks once because i was in jail.
Avatar f tn Never have done methadone but says I failed for it but their isn't any metabolites detected how is this possible It states Methadone metabolite (EDDP). Negative Methadone metabolite (EDDP) level Not detected Methadone Positive Methadone level.
1417952 tn?1282188060 I have never missed a dose of methadone, but twice now the cup test at the Dr.'s office shows negative for methadone!? How can this happen?? I pray the lab test comes back differently! I took it 6 hours prior and every 12 hours before that for many months! Is my system unique? Is something else destroying it like small alcohol consumption the night before? A multivitamin & 1 cranberry pill? The mix of tramadol, methadone, and naproxen? Has this happened to anyone else?
Avatar n tn If a GC-MS method was used (gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry) to detect the quantity of methadone metabolite in urine then any levels above 300ng/mL indicate methadone abuse. The results also depend on the dose and timing of the test. So, if you have been prescribed six 15mg tab per day by your doctor, it can be taken as a normal result. However, if you are not prescribed this dose by your doctor, then the result will be considered suspicious of overdosing. Please discuss with your doctor.
Avatar m tn THanks for the info, It doesnt show up on a 5 panel that includes testing for opiates, it has to be specially tested for and on the 10 panel they test for methadone and am worried that sub and methadone my show up the same on a test.
Avatar f tn Buprenorphine will not cause a positive result on tests for other opiates. The typical urine tests used to detect methadone, oxycodone, heroin, and other opioids check for a different metabolite than that found with buprenorphine and will not show a positive result in buprenorphine (only) maintained patients. I'm not sure why you're testing positive for oxycodone as Suboxone will not cause a false positive for it.
Avatar m tn And if they do if your at a clinic it is still perscribed, but I highly doubt they will include methadone metabolite test for a job screen. Just my opinion and what I've seen with myself and many others at the 2 clinics I've been in.
Avatar f tn I have been researching this fairly extensively. Much like Suboxone, there is a lot of 'miracle drug' stories and 'horror' stories. The science behind it fascinats me. Buprenorphine is the only breakthrough in addiction pharmaceuticals methadone. Researchers where funded to research psilocybin and cluster headaches and ibogaine for heroine dependence/addiction. Endeogens stimulate, rather than block, the transmitter sights in the old brain.
Avatar f tn 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. The normal ratio should only have 3-4 x more norafentanyl to fentanyl. I also had no oxycodone in my system but did test positive for the metabolite in very small amounts. This prompted my doctor to consider testing me for genetic drug/enzyme metabolism.
Avatar m tn Hi, Taking Suboxone to come off of Tramadol is like taking Heroin to come off Methadone. It is not suggested and is rarely accepted. You will surely be adding to fuel to the fire if you go that route. What else have you tried? Have you spoken with your doctor?
Avatar f tn I know that Methadone is supposedly as liver friendly as a drug can get. What I've heard about morphine, vicodin or any morphine derivitives is that they replicate the HepC virus somehow. That's all I know is what I've heard and what I've read as I've also read that those types of drugs replicate the disease. I had a friend who was HepC positive and his kidneys, lower back area was very painful and his doctor enrolled him in a Methadone Maintenance program.
1476285 tn?1287341384 Will Concentrations of methadone were reduced when co-administered with telaprevir. No adjustment of methadone dose is required when initiating co-administration of telaprevir. However, clinical monitoring is recommended as the dose of methadone during maintenance therapy may need to be adjusted in some .
Avatar f tn It covers the pain, but I haven't slept well since I came off the methadone 5 years ago. Of course, on methadone, I could sleep all day, wake up and still feel tired. I don't know if the hydrocodone will be strong enough for you. I can't use oxycodone anymore -- tolerance is too high. If you're like me you may be better off with morphine or hydromorphone. Ask your doc. Good luck.
5330576 tn?1366530599 This is so because at times the dose taken on the day of the test is often not able to generate the required metabolite by the time the test is taken. Also the metabolites generated by previous day’s dose are often washed away in urine or are too low to be detected by urine test. In these cases blood test and hair test are more accurate. However, urine tests are cheaper and hence more widely used. You could ask your doctor whether blood or hair test could be done in your case. Take care!
Avatar f tn Since you were just diagnosed, did you happen to also have a liver biopsy as well and if so what is the condition of your liver? ___________________________________________________________ Pain Management in the Cirrhotic Patient: The Clinical Challenge ".....
2016728 tn?1328362441 The same UA, showed negative for Methadone but positive for EDDP, which is the metabolite of Methadone. You cannot have one without the other. I have had several UA, in the course of 9 years that have returned questionable results. At this time I am looking for a lab, not affiliated with this dr and have my UA done there.

1251134 tn?1269720578 The presence of the Hydrocodone being confirmed had a major gliche of the metabolite Hydromorphone not being detected!! To make matters worse Methamphetamine was confirmed yet indicated an invalid test result in this section.Also tested for Methadone and Xanax Tablets!!!! Im not even prescribed nor ever have been on either one of these drugs! And on my ID section it has my birthdate being 1969 and that my ID was n/a. This is so all wrong. I couldn't stop crying as my reg.
Avatar n tn anyways after that I was looking for every high I started doing every drug I could get my hads on till I found herion, then thats all I wanted I did it for 5 years and now have been on methadone for 2 1/2 years and have been struggling to get off of it. Opiates are evil, she'll get to the point where she'll get headaches when she doesn't have it, along with some other disgusting withdrawal symptoms. She needs to find something thats not a opiate or she's in for some real suffering.
Avatar n tn Fentanyl is metabolized into an inactive metabolite (norfentanyl) where as morphine is metabolized into one active (m6g) and one inactive (m3g) metabolite. And, heroin is metabolized into morphine. There are other things such as clearance and whatnot that aren't alike as well. I felt like withdrawal was a bit more nasty from the fentanyl. But, that could also have been my elevated tolerance causing it. I am not really sure on that one.
Avatar f tn Clinical pharmacology studies demonstrated that oral naltrexone at 50, 100 and 150mg effectively blocks the physiological and subjective effects of parenterally administered heroin, hydromorphone or morphine for 24, 48 and 72 hours respectively. Naltrexone is rapidly biotransformed into a less active metabolite. No change was observed in the rate of naltrexone disposition during chronic dosing indicating no metabolic induction.
Avatar f tn Most opiates don't have siezures as a side effect, true. However, a metabolite of demerol can cause them. For me that meant that on the fourth day of 200mg suppositories, 6x day I would have a grand mal seizure. Happened three times before the pattern was clear. The last time was ten seconds after I'd parked at my kid's pre-school- the lot full of children. Just terrifying. I was then in the hospital for 11 days detoxing, and just celebrated three years clean and sober.
