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?
Your wrong oxycotin and oxycodone are identical drugs and when they send the urine off they don't really look for oxycodone or oxycotin they look for the metabolites in lay terms what drug it turns into in the system. In this case it happens to be oxymorphone. They do not test via blood either, they use urine. The lab would take months in some cases to come back to find exact amounts and that test is very expensive and only done mainly in the event of death. Sometimes if they are already drawing blood they will check it for the med your taking but not for the amount. Oxycodone is Oxycotin just one is relased slowly over time and the other works for 3 to 6 hours and all the medication is put in the blood stream at once instead of with cotin it is slowly a mg or 2 a hour let out.

It is the same drug, one is simply controlled release.
As far as how long a medication stays in your system, it's not the same for everyone. It will be detected within 24-48 hours at the least, but it also depends on the persons metabolism. The faster your metabolism, the fewer days it lasts in your system. So, if you workout heavily or do a lot of cardio from the day you take it, it should speed up the rate that your body filters itself giving you a better chance of passing your UA with less days between when you take it and when you do your UA. The sure fire way to pass your UA, obviously, would be to not take it within 5 days of your UA, if you can control yourself. But i know pain is a fickle b****, and so are the wds, but it's not worth losing your scripts over especially if you truly need them.
Ya'LL just live in your little bubble with your backyard medical degrees. If your urine, especially blood gets sent to lab, absolutely they can tell if it was oxycontin, oxycodone, percocet, xanax, ativan, klonopin, whatever. If you aren't following your p's and q's your gonna be without. Remember if you're around a dog you're gonna get fleas. Take your medication right. There are too many getting meds that don't F***** NEED IT AND PEOPLE THAT DO ARE CATCHING HELL FOR IT!!!!
No! You have no worries its the same medication just one is slow release and the other is instant.
I see a pain doctor and he gives me 40 mg oxycontin. I took a roxycodone about 3:00 AM and had a urine test done about 8:00 AM will they be able to tell i took a Roxycodone?
What you are saying is false. It its a very expensive test to determine the exact level if meds in your body. Usually only used in the event of death and not even in the event of overdose. They just give you narcan. What they do test is the metabolites of the drug your taking. Oxycodone turns into oxymorphone in the liver. So that is what they actually are looking for. If your doctor or nurse are telling you this its to strike fear to prevent you from taking more. I am a PA.

hi I'm in pain management since 2002 I went to the doctor for 15 years never had a soft spot for test ever then back to back I had a bad test did not know why I went to another doctor and ask him to help me find why he fired me so good luck because there is no doctors out there anymore it's all about committees and the DEA
I go in tomorrow for a pre-employment saliva drug test and am taking oxycodone with a prescription as prescribed will they still hire me if I don't have any illegal drugs in my system.
Flower- yes it will show up the same.
I'm prescribed Nucynta and hydrocodone Norcos tens.I take urine analysis,will these show up as opiates?what about if I also had taken Oxycodone with my Nucynta will it show up as opiates?
Your wrong,the only difference is that the oxycotin is time released and the oxycodone is not but the primary drug is oxycodone,someone's FOS...T
There a a few drugs that can have cocaine in them, one is ecstasy. If it's not pure they will cut it with that. I know there is another one I just can't think of it.
That opens seems nice, good reviews.
Hi Babyblue1 - I totally agree that people in pain, especially severe, chronic pain, can be driven by desperation to do things they would prefer not to do or never thought they'd do, in order to obtain pain relief. I suffered with severe, body-wide pain for 8 years before receiving ANY pain relief. And when I finally received SOME help (from a doctor by means of a legitimate prescription), it was still another 7 years (so 15 years of hanging on by my fingernails!) in total) before I was prescribed an amount adequate to allow me to live a life that went beyond being an invalid, sitting in my recliner with a bunch of heating pads. Only in the last 7 years have I been able, much or most of the time, to actually ENJOY a life with a tolerable pain level. I guess my point was that if one obtains medications illegally (though I believe, in the case we're referring to, it wasn't physical pain but panic attacks and anxiety--i.e., emotional pain!), one should not be surprised when doctors responds in a less than favorable manner. I know it takes tremendous will power when one is suffering so terribly to always do things "by the book"--especially when "the book" is often so unfair. In my case, in the 15 years I've been taking a legally prescribed controlled substance, always sticking tightly to the "rules," I've only had 1 drug test done by my doctor--who apologized for that but, for some reason, the insurance I had at that time periodically required such tests required such tests to be done on all patients who were taking the meds I was. My heart really does go out to those who struggle to get the medications needed for relief from their pain, whatever it's source. I recognize that this is very discouraging and that there sometimes comes a point when the patient simply cannot bear the suffering.
Olivia- I agree but living by the book is not reality for a lot of people. Rather because they cannot get enough to help with their pain or who knows why they are on here asking questions but that is what this site is for... to ask questions, not to judge or throw up their imperfections in their face. Fortunately, for me I have been managed pretty well but have also learned a lot over the past 10 years. Test have come a long way, even the over the counter drug test that do not get sent to labs. Typically- methadone test for methadone, Oxycodone (this includes OxyContin and Percs) tests comeback positive for Oxycodone ( these are synthetic opiates so typically they will come back positive for the drug name they are. Morphine (ms-contin), hydros, hydromorpone etc typically all comes back as just opiates. However, in my case when I take a drug test mine are sent out to a lab that checks for every specific type of drug and levels. Urine takes longer for tests to be clean, then blood and saliva test are typically use to check for more recent use of medicines and clear out of those specimens faster than urine and I have done extensive study on this and also worked in a hospital lab for over 10 years. However, methadone and THC are two drugs that can stay in your system for longer periods of time and that pretty much has everything to with how much you have taken and your body chemistry.
Funky Toes told it like it is! Bottom line: 1--take only YOUR medication(s); 2--guard your medications so no one else can take them (preferably put them under lock and key;) 3-- take only the medications you're prescribed;4--take them exactly AS they're prescribed. Following these guidelines, you should never have to worry about the results of drug tests that are either planned or unexpected, about running out early, about having unprescribed or illegal drugs in your system or about any of the other worries and problems people are asking about. And those of us in pain won't be penalized because other people have decided to use the medications we desperately need to control our agony for "fun."

oxycontin shows up as OXY. the tests these days are usually a 7 panel test and they show different types of opiates. If you use morphine it will show as an opiate, same with hydrocodone which is vicodin, but, OXY is the result for roxys, percocet, oxycodone, oxycontin, tylox, and any other formulation of oxycodone. There isn't a specific test for the drug itself, the test detects the metabolite produced by the liver, which is usually oxymorphone, however, when taking oxymorphone orally, the result is opioid unless a blood test is taken or the test is sent to a lab. The labs know everything and pain doctors have no mercy on you after you get caught the 2nd time, they will immediately eject you. They may give you a partial script to get to your appoiuntment where they tell you you are all done, but, they aren't responsible for referring you to a program like a suboxone program or methadone, so, don't do illicit drugs or get caught with too much , too little or the wrong drug in your system. You also can get caught with suboxen in your system as most pain clinics are smart and use hi definition tests that detail buprenorphine to show you are cheating. If you get caught with bupe in your system, they legally can not prescribe you anything, so, don't get caught!! sickness=awful !!
To Bud - Oxycontin is NOT stronger than oxycodone. They are both oxycodone but the Oxycontin is the timed-release form of while plain oxycodone is immediate release as stated by Fred and Babyblue1. Oxycontin may seem stronger, only because it lasts longer and is usually given in a higher number of milligrams. To Summer - it's not oxycodIne, it's oxycodOne. To Cpugnome: It's OxycoNtin, not Oxycotin. If one is taking a medication, one should really know how to spell it. :-) To pjshay: Since Oxycontin IS an opiate, it would obviously SHOW as an opiate. And to all those who misuse, abuse, sell or just in general use their prescription pain meds differently than directed, I'm in total agreement with Comments--STOP IT! You really do make it so much more difficult for those of us who struggle daily with agonizing pain but still stick to the rules.
