Renee Says:
When taking a urine drug test, does oxycontin and oxycodone come up as the same drug? I took a 40mg oxycontin on a monday and was drug tested on thurs. I am tested once a month from my pain mangement dr. to make sure my oxycodone's are in my system. So will the 2 drugs show up as one or is there a differance in them with the drug test?

No, there is not difference between them for a drug test, Oxycocodone is the active ingredient in both, so they will show up as the same thing.


However, what you may run into is having a different level of it in your body than what they would expect if you were taking the exact amount prescribed.

Some of the pain management clinics use tests that show the level in your body, so they can tell if someone is not taking their medications, at all, or if they may be abusing them.

If you are taking them as prescribed, then the levels in your urine should fall within a certain span and anything outside of that helps alert them to a problem.

Are there any other questions?

I am prescribed 30mg of oxycontin per day by my pain management doctor. On Thursday and Friday I took 45mg of oxycodone but did not take the oxycontin. This coming Monday I am scheduled to have my urine levels tested. Do you have any ideas about how this should show or any suggestions?

Piper, if they are testing the levels in your system, they may test as being off. When they do that type of test, there should be a certain range the level falls into, based on your prescribed dosage. Anything outside of that range may alert them to a problem.

Mel, most narcotics are detectable in urine for 4 to 5 days, after taking them. There is, however, no hard and fast rule, because individuating factors are always going to have an effect.

After the dr let him go i. Did an investgation. Here my husband DJs when he can and 2 times i had to pick him up from a job cause he couldnt drive! One thing is my husband never drinks. On. The job only soda! those two times i picked him up. He had his urine test those 2 time I think my husband was drugged both those time. Something was put in his soda! What burns me up was his dr treated him like a crack head! My husband is very careful with his meds we keep them lock up in a safe. I just would like to know what kind of drug could do that to u a.

mba, listen i am not being a smart ass i have been in pain management for 6 years and know people and personally given drug tests and only 1 think in god's green earth that will come back as cocaine and that is "cocaine"! they cant tell a differance between crack and cocaine it all comes back as just cocaine. and the date rape drug is ghb gamma hydro.... better know as ruffayol.sp. but ruffies are the date rape drug because it leaves you out if it, relaxed as if you drank about a 1/5 of moonshine or some grain alcohol and did some benzo's like xanax or valiums at the same time, thats ruffies and its a downer, on the complete oposite you have cocaine! that comes from the coco plant and is a stimulant, meaning a "upper" it increases heart rate. movement, all that not to mention if someone but coke in your husbads drink his whole mouth would be numb. so mba lets break down and say,,,,, my husband is a dj. that is someone you want to be cool with in the club like a bouncer. you walk in impress a girl yeah i know the bouncer anything goes down im good, oh wats your favorite song ill have the dj throw it on, so you husband went in the bathroom or where ever if its a crazy club someone broke him out a line right there, that is the only way unless he sells it, then it can be transfered threw the skin but you would have to touch alot of coke and its expensive no one is going to waste it by trying to dump it on you or in your drink. so one of 2 thinks he was tooting it or selling it, or the dr would not have considered him as a user, if you come in contact there is a small nanogram that pain drs messure in, if overs 1000 then its using it and not just contact, same as pot they can tell if you walked into the wrong room or you are smoke big fat blunts. i am not being mean there is just a little something called reality, and that is why they call me the truth,
the truth is not liable for people that use drugs or any informaiton about people that use drugs but if you want the truth .................. just ask. but jack nicholson talked about me some people just cant handle the truth! so mba if you have any more question i will be glad to help you out :)

TRUTH YOU ARE ABSOLUTLY WRONG, ecstasy does contain cocaine usually and will show on a test,and nowadays is a much more popular club drug, especially if you are some kind of dance dj, and im sure the test they gave them was a 5panel in which case only the cocaine and opiates mixed in with the mdma would show up in the test,and since hes on opiates, maybe all they saw was the cocaine, it is very plausable someone dropped a pill in his drink,either that or yea he blew some rails

I'm a flight paramedic and also an RN. And when we do drug urinalysis we do a 12-panel Right when the sample is provided. Then we send it to the lab for further test if anything comes up abnormal. We don't test to see if your taking the meds. We have strict rules we have to follow for DEA Logs. If your Dr. Gives hydrocodone/oxycodone etc. you cant have any other drug in your system period if it's not prescribed. We give 1 warning and if it happens a second time then your dismissed immediatly. Because we have to send the test to the DEA and we will get in trouble then. And the DEA will shut the doctor down and investigate. If you truly have pain you shouldn't be pushing the envelope. I've had chronic pain from arthritis since 12yrs old that's the reason I'm sharing info. About how the office runs here in my state. It varies in different states how the DEA controls the opioids so don't think anybodys info applies to you unless you know what state they are in. Here the state law states that we don't have to tell you why we are dismissing you and probably applies to others aswell. So be smart don't be using a pain doc. To get high that's what we suspect if you're DUA comes up dirty.
