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?

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.

There is no way the levels will be off that far away from the test. I go to a pain clinic and they test for the same day. I have taken more the morning of the test of Oxycontin and the results were never questioned, as well, I have taken less of oxy contin than I am supposed to. The key level they test for is the immeidate release pills, such as Roxy's that show up as high levels for a few hours, then., they dissipate quickly and are merely non detectable for any decent level in the urine. If blood is checked, that is a totally different story. If they prescribe 40mG or 80 MG oxycontin, even by taking half, 6-8 hours later won't show the levels a 30 mg Roxy would because the Oxy is slowly released at like 10-12 mg at a clip and are usually not even effective after 4-6 hours instead of the 12 hours the manufacturer states. The 30's are strong in the system and their half life that's strong enough for the level check is normally next to nothing after 3-4 hours. If the oxycontin is taken, the only levels you should be concerned with are the pulses of meds they release every couple of hours, which are very low and will NOT interfere in any way to the level check/test.

The positives you listed are Amp=amphetamines OPI=opiods Benzodiaz.
Xanax is in the benzodiaz. drug group, opiods could be anything(morphine, hydrocodone, codeine, oxy's) they test for several and will know which one.

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.

They are both the same drug (oxycodone). Oxycontin is a trade name for time released Oxycontin.

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.
