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?
Carol that's just impossible, heart meds and loratabs have nothing in them even remotely close to the THC in Marijuana that drug tests look for. I don't know what happened when you tested positive for pit, but it sure wasn't a mixture of your meds.
I have a prescription for MS Contin and a script for oxycodone. The MS Contin is very similar to Oxycontin and I take that for my main pain med and I take the oxycodone for breakthrough pain. The oxycontin is much stronger than the oxycodone.
I'm not sure how to get your email but I am very interested in what you have to say about this. I am seeing a new pain doctor and on the first visit, he cut my pain meds down to half. I've been given 120 oxycodone 10mg. The new doctor cut me back to 60 and told me that if I run out, don't call him. He also added that they will test for the drug in my system so if I test negative, he will wonder what I'm doing with my meds. Well, in two weeks I ran out. I have some 15mg oxycontin and I've started taking that. I saved back 4 of my prescribed meds so that I can use them the day before my appointment and one the morning of my appointment. Will this be adequate to test good when I go back to my pain doctor?
It's not so much as the people abusing as it is the people who don't take them and sell them. If u don't need them for pain and get prescriptions for income please don't bother even getting them because people with real pain have a hard time finding them in stock at pharmacies. That's the stuff that makes me mad.
I took 3 60's of oxycotin a day plus 2 /5mg percocet. It came up in a test as morphine ms . so all is bs. Thank you !
I took a drug screen an it came up positive for opinion amp Benz what does mean I took Xanax and a 30 mg oxycodine what does Amp OPI and Benz mean?
There is NO POSSIBLE WAY you can get away with crushing your meds and putting it in your urine. These tests check for the METABOLITES of the drug & NOT the actual drug, as well as the levels of the prescribed drug. It takes several days to have the correct levels, so you can't wait till the day before or day of your appointment and take a couple. They will know. If your pain meds are vital for your quality of life, it's best to avoid any other drugs you're not prescribed. I've been there, I've ran out and taken 3-4 hydros or morphines a few days before my appointment & BOTH times they DID show up. I was honest & luckily have a caring doctor, BUT ..Im not trying to BS him. Believe me, they've heard it all. Lying will only make you more suspect. On the other hand if you are scamming, YOU WILL BE FOUND OUT.
Hi again, Sulve! Since Percocet is an immediate release form of oxycodone, skipping 1 or 2 on a better pain day shouldn't be a problem in terms of blood test checks. (I would add that if you're finding you can pretty much ALWAYS skip a couple, it may be time for a dose decrease!) If you take 1 of those skipped pills as an extra dose on an extra bad day, you should also be fine. If your levels are really low when you're tested, it creates concern that you may be selling them which is why they check. But again, 1 or 2 less or extra now and then shouldn't matter. Hope this helps.
Hi Adele I have 1 more question. If I am taking 6 percocet in 24 hrs according to the Rx but there are days I don't need to do that amount will that show up in the urine test or vice versa, if I go over 1 or 2?
Thanks Adele I really Appreciate your help!

Hi, Sulve! Percocet consists of a combination of oxycodone and Tylenol. Oxycontin consists of plain oxycodone, only it's in a timed release form rather than an immediate release form like the oxycodone in Percocet. Since both Percocet and Oxycontin are simply two different forms of oxycodone, they will both show up in a test as oxycodone. Bottom line, if you take a leftover Oxycontin on a bad pain day, it won't show up any differently than Percocet.
You sound quite smart in this area so may i ask, i have just started with a pm Dr who gave me percocet 5/325 and i still have some oxycontin from last year if i use the oxycontin on really bad pain days will it show up in my urine at the Dr office and if it does how much time does is take to be out of my system before the test? Thank you for answering my question I really appreciate it!
Kevin, I couldn't agree more. It is abusers and those who are taking narcotic pain medications for a high rather than for treating real pain that make it so difficult for people like you (and me!) who are actually in agony to get appropriate medication. And you're right about the fact that many doctors have become too nervous to prescribe opioids even when it's the right thing to do because they're afraid of being labeled as pill pushers or over-prescribers and afraid of losing their license. I understand (and I suspect you understand also) that when you're in terrible pain, it's really tempting to take extra of whatever pain medication you're prescribed. But you're right--it's better to let your doctor know that your current dose just isn't taking care of the pain. If your doctor won't listen, find another doctor--one who takes your pain seriously, right? As for those who sell their pain meds, those people need to realize how much harder that kind of behavior makes life for people who live in agony. It is inexcusable. My heart goes out to you and to all those who suffer unnecessarily because the abusers and mis-users of narcotics have made our lives even more difficult and painful than they already are. And it sounds like your life is pretty difficult and painful. My sympathies to you.:-)
Yes, I am and proud of it. Try walking around on a broken back for 1 and 1/2 YEARS because the Army did not want to do anything about it, only to be stationed in a different country and learning that you need emergency surgery because of. like you said ignorant doctors that did not have a clue. The only sleep I got was from total exhaustion and then only long enough until the pain woke me up again. I still did not take any extra pain medication. If your doctor will not listen, GET A NEW DOCTOR THAT DOES, but do not take it upon yourself to increase your dose that is why you have a doctor. As far as shame on me, no shame on all the people that are abusing their medications and forcing the doctors into strict guidelines imposed by the government to combat the abusers or risk loosing their ability to practice medicine. I have suffered tremendously because there are so many so called Pain Patients that are either just trying to get a free HIGH, or peddling their prescription pain medication to others. It is not shame on me it is shame on the ABUSERS.
Pretty self-righteous, aren't you, Kevin? I agree that many people abuse their meds and make it hard for the rest of us. But you have also have no idea if their pain may be far worse than yours. Or perhaps they're undermedicated and just can't stand the pain any longer. I have a great doc now who actually listens to me and treats my pain appropriately and adequately. But I went through many years of having the severity of my pain blown off by ignorant doctors who insisted it simply couldn't be that bad. While I still took my meds according to instructions, it was hell, pure and simple. I was unable to function because of the pain and spent my days in agony. Unless you're feeling someone else's pain, you can't know what they're experiencing and assume it's just like yours and if you can deal with YOUR pain, they should be able to deal with theirs without taking extra meds. Shame on you!
What if u have a old script but not over a year old and had a reAly bad month but it's not the same as what u are perceived this month and had to take from old script wood that be dirty ua one is oxycoden and one is oxymorphone
I was blown up in Iraq and live with constant pain, every hour every day but I still only take my medication as prescribed. So to all that are complaining or worried because you did not take your meds as prescribed don't get mad at the pain Doctor for dismissing you as a patient, it is because of people like you that the rest of us are treated like crap. I have never been worried about a UA and have never failed a UA. Bottom line QUIT ABBUSSING YOUR MEDS.
JD Boss I too look ok on the outside, but I'm degenerating herniated, stenosis, narrowing of my Lumbar L3-L5 to S1 and a pituitary cyst a constant pain in my head. I moved back down south, and let me tell ya ,those ppl running patients from up.north to FL so messed everything up for me, my doses have been cut. I usually run out on the the 25th day. I also have painful heavy menstrual cycles, then my headaches get worse, so because these addicts and pain clinic totally messed it up, my doses for all my meds now cut in half because of the law says so, and I'm trying my hardest to make it through to 28 days. I'm scared to increase or change my meds because the pharmacy won't have it, or just won t fill it. FL :-/ gone mad but I was reading all theses articles and yes them dr s over prescribed the ones that were convicted some physicians got no punishment, these dr s were signing a stack of blank prescriptions....I was in awe and disgust...now I'm feeling the pain and somehow still ppl that don't need them seem to have them
