Common Questions and Answers about Urine test oxycodone oxycontin


Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar n tn The molecular structures of heroin and oxycodone are almost identical. Are you on OxyContin or Percocet which both contain oxycodone ? If yes, did you perhaps exceed your recommended dose prior to your testing? The lab urine testing is likely because you might have been flagged and they want to verify their suspicion.
356518 tn?1322267242 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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!
Avatar f tn I have chronic urinary tract and bladder problems and cannot void on demand. How often can a urine test be required for a pain management patient? My doctor has an assistant, not a nurse, who assists her with checking patient vitals, etc. the assistant makes frequent demands for a urine test...4 in the last 8 months which seem excessive to me. She gets quite testy if I am unable to comply and has left an unpleasant message on my phone once.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar f tn 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?
1855076 tn?1337118903 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.
Avatar m tn I hope to work with the pain center to cut some out but I should not have to, as I do not abuse the meds and get urine test every month and follow all their strict rules and rightly so. I also lock up my meds and go to one pharmacy as they demand. I can go 18 hours with not meds and not miss the oxycodone but the pain by then is so bad. The point is I do not miss it at all but I need it for pain relief. Any ideas on how I can get them to feel compassion and work with me not to go that low.
429155 tn?1205676864 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn 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.
264230 tn?1208799931 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.
Avatar n tn 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.
535089 tn?1400677119 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.
Avatar m tn The urine test can sometimes be wrong...one time, I gave a sample & they came in a few minutes later, stating something showed up in my blood. I totally fell apart, insisting that I NEVER EVER took anything illegal! They took a mouth swab test before I left. I called the pharmacist & told her what happened. I was terrified that they would do something else. She told me that test results can be affected by things we eat- such as poppy seeds on a bagel, or other foods.
Avatar f tn 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?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn A simple urine test will be the same but a blood test will not lie and will tell exactly how much of what is in your blood at what levels. Even though, I have done this many times, I don't recommend taking one because of running out of other. Had I educated myself years ago, I would have been completely open with my Dr. so he could of seen the addiction signs before it got so bad for me.
Avatar n tn 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.?..
7556888 tn?1391975621 It's unbelievable that not all pain Drs know that these tests are not 100% accurate. My sister takes Morphine for her RA. She had a urine test and it showed Percocet. She has not taken that med for at least 5 years and doesn't have access to it. Her pain Dr knew something was wrong so he retested her and it did not show up. He told her these tests can be wrong sometimes. We're here to help any way we can.
