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?

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!

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

You'll be fine. They rarely mess with people for having too much in their system. If you only took 1 extra, they won't even be able to tell that.

I took a UA at my Dr last Friday. I've had a cruddy flu and I've taken some cold/decongestant stuff to help over the last week. Late yesterday, Mon, I was asked by my Dr's office to come in for another UA. Which I planned on taking today, Tues. I had a migraine last night throughout this morning and need to have a urine test today for pain management meds oxycontin 30mg 2X a day, for breakthrough a 750mg hydrocodone 1 up to 4X daily as needed, 1 fiorocet 6X a day as needed, Zanaflex,1 Plavix, 138mcg synthroid, 200mg providgial 2X a day, Phenergan as needed as well. I'm concerned bc my migraines cause intense nausea. I vomited shortly after taking my am dose of my meds and could see my meds in my vomit. I was miserable in pain suffering like crazy and decided to only take take another 30mg oxycontin bc I thought it was out of my system. I'm afraid I have too much in my system now bc the 1st oxycontin may not have come out with my vomit.. something that didn't occur to me until now. Will this drug urine screen show higher levels of my long lasting pain med? Should I inform my physician of what occurred today, that I took an additional oxy before I take this UA? Or wait to see if get a bad response to say something? Should I wait a day before I go to the Dr so my levels are more accurate? Can a UA even show the levels of my meds? I also suffer from a DNA deformity that goes by MTHFR. It's caused many health issues throughout my life and I wonder if that alone can show inaccurate levels? Please help me with the truth regarding urine evals. Any recommendations as to what I should do bc my head is killing me, I'm continuing to vomit and I can't think well whIle feeling so badly.

I am a drug counselor and do drug testing often, there are many things that can throw off a test everything from cough medicine that can show up as alcohol to , to much ibuprofen the test positive for THC. The doctor should have told him what he tested positive for and if it was the same thing both times. Also most doctors will let you go on the first positive unless its THC. So the odds that he would come up positive dirty and then clean is easier to prove since THC stays in your system for up to thirty days, also if he is heavier and works a job where he sweats alot it can call for a false positive. The thing to do is would be to tell the doctor you want it sent to an outside lab usually its costs about 20 dollars, also it is imperative that when the urine is collected the specimen never leaves your husbands sight. EVER and if sent out he signs a for and the container and it must be refrigerated. I hope this helps.

Lulu, you sure do like to say revelatory a lot. Do you even know what that means?

As for that woman and her situation, I don't think you know what her situation is. She was on here saying her husband was kicked out of his pain management because he failed a drug test for cocaine which she claims happened because someone put it in his drink while he was working as a DJ. Tell me how she has a bad situation here or a problem other than a problem with denial or a problem with her husband? It didn't sound like she has a drug problem and it definitely didn't sound like she believed her husband had a drug problem because she said a number of times that the reason the cocaine was in his system was because someone else put it in his drink.

As for my education and career, you really think that it's just arithmetic? That really shows your ignorance. There's a lot more to public accounting than arithmetic. Anyone that has as much education as you claim to have would know that. I highly doubt you have the degrees you claim to have. If you did, you wouldn't have said "your degree in arithmetic" and a lot of other things you said. It's not "my supposed degrees in arithmetic" that makes me smarter than you. It's because I am smarter than you. It's not hard to tell by the way you write and the things you say that it's all an act and you are trying to appear to be smarter than you really are. Don't reply to me anymore.

Here's the deal FreezePop. I also have a BA in psychology, a masters' degree and a PhD in the mental health field, all from top schools, as does my husband (only, believe it or not, he has three masters' degrees.) So please don't think you're going to intimidate me or convince me how smart you are by claiming your supposed degrees in arithmetic naturally make you smarter than me. Not too bright? Have you seen my transcripts? Have you spoken with the person who oversees my work? Of course not. And my daughter is a CPA with a major company where she is vice-president of finance. Does that make her an expert on drugs and mental health? Of course not, because not all education makes one an expert on all topics.

My husband is a therapist. He regularly sees people in the same situation this woman is in--a spouse who is struggling with drugs, making a heavy negative impact not only on the spouse but on any children involved and on the extended family. She may be in denial but she is still suffering. People in that type of situation deserve compassion, not condemnation.

Your final statement regarding "winning" was extremely revelatory. This is not about winning; it's about sharing ideas and information. Just because someone disagrees with you does not make them stupid. Your inflated ego is showing.

Lulu, I'm sorry I said you couldn't read. I should have probably been a little more clear when dealing with someone that is not very bright. I should have said "if you can comprehend" rather than "if you knew how to read" because you obviously can't comprehend what you read because it was very clear what my post said but you still somehow screwed it up.

Also, you keep saying I should show some compassion for that woman for what she's going through. What is she going through? I couldn't find her post so i could read it again but all i remember her talking about is her DJ husband failing a drug test for cocaine because she claims someone slipped it in his drink while he was spinning some records. That doesn't sound like anything to feel sorry for someone for or even show compassion to her.

I don't think you should be telling me what i should or shouldn't be doing. I'm pretty sure I have a lot more education than you do. I have 2 bachelor's degrees, 2 master's degrees, and I'm a CPA so you can go try to act smart somewhere else because i know better and I'm not believing your lies.

As for the "false positive" crap you keep talking about, that's all it is, crap. It's crap because it isn't true. Do you have any evidence to back up your claim? The burden of proof is on you because you're the one claiming something that has no scientific evidence to support your claim. I know that it won't cause a drug test to show positive. How i know this is because i used that excuse many many years ago for a failed test and a lot of very smart people with a lot of education and years in their respective fields were asked. Several different drug test labs, pharmacists, doctors, chemist, drug manufacturers, and other people that my lawyer could find that would have knowledge of this and they all said that this wasn't true and is just a myth and it has no scientific research or evidence to support that claim. If you Google the Amoxicillin false positive myth, what you'll find is several sites like this one with people like you making this baseless claim. You can't believe everything you read on the internet. I guess we both agree you know how to read but it still hasn't been determined that you can understand what you read. Maybe you should read that link that i pasted above and you can attempt to read and understand what it says. I'm sure there's going to be some words that might be hard for you to understand but just give it your best shot little buddy. Just sound out the words and raise your hand and ask questions if you don't understand anything.

You need to realize that you'll never win an argument with me because the smarter person will always win when it's about something that requires intelligence and really just about anything. You need to just concede defeat and move on to someone that you're smarter than so you'll have a chance to win because you won't against me. FreezePoP wins yet again.

OMG. That is just unbelievable because it really is unbelievable. The Amoxicillin false positive is exactly just that, false. I've taken Amoxicillin several times before a drug test and i have never failed. The only times I have failed for cocaine is when i actually used cocaine. I tried that Amoxicillin false positive excuse before and it didn't work because the drug test lab researched it and talked to several doctors, pharmacists, chemist, and other people that have knowledge about drugs and their interactions with the body and they all said that it will not give a false positive. Plus, a doctor is not going to say "it is about 2 lines worth". A doctor is not going to measure the amount of a drug in one's system by measurements of a way an illegal drug is taken. Either you are making this up or your friend did and you are ignorant for believing him/her.

I find it hard to believe that you tried methamphetamine for your "first time" ever before you flunked your drug test. First, you mentioned how much you did in weight rather than lines, hits, puffs, of however methamphetamine heads use it. I've never done that trash mess so I'm only speaking on what I've seen on shows of heard about from users on shows. I don't associate with people that use it either because usually people who use that trash are trash. Secondly, you said you did it for 3 days. For someone doing a drug for their first time as you claim, 3 days seems like a long time to be up doing a drug for your first time ever being on it. I don't know why you have to lie on the internet. Nobody knows who you are so just tell the truth. You can be anyone you want over the internet and say whatever you want and nobody will ever know who it really is so why not tell the truth? Put down the methamphetamine and you won't have anything to worry about.

Dear Freeze PoP: First, there you go again with the personal insults to someone you've never met. "If you know how to read?" If I couldn't read, I'd never have read what you said! And one doesn't get through college and graduate school without being able to read. Then there's your comment stating that, "You're the one who probably has a problem with it"--a second personal insult, again directed at someone you've never met and about whom you know nothing. There are more reasons to educate one's self about cocaine besides being a user. As a therapist, it's vital to be informed about this.

Secondly, there would be no reason EVER for me to use "that false positive" excuse since I have never used cocaine or any other illegal/street drug in my life, don't intend to and I've never been subjected to drug testing. I have, however, done some extensive reading (from reputable resources, not simply anecdotal statements from FORMER users) in order to knowledgeably respond to the questions of others as to what can create false positives for cocaine. As with many things, more is constantly being learned about this subject. If you haven't used cocaine in "several years", good for you! However, it may not have been known when you were using it what situations could cause a false positive. In any case, if my experience with other medical issues is any indication, many doctors act like experts on topics of which they actually have very little knowledge. Doctor's fly by the seat of their pants, too!

Thirdly, and perhaps most unbelievable, is the fact that you minimize the pain and suffering this woman is going through. The final sentence of your 1/29/15, 6:16 pm contribution is extremely revelatory. You don't think what she has discovered about her husband would be extremely traumatic and emotionally painful? That it's no big deal? I think it would be a pretty safe assumption that she is in emotionally AGONY and suffering tremendous mental distress. She needs to be shown compassion, not belittled, as in the last two sentences of your 1/27/15 posting. Even coming from a stranger, this would be painful. Why add to someone's pain when you can just as easily, as I said before, BE KIND and encouraging! Using courtesy, rather than insults, would make her (and perhaps you) feel better!:-)

I never said i was a drug addict or even implied i was. If you know how to read, you will see that it was past tense and not present. I haven't touched that junk in several years so don't call me a drug addict. You're the one who probably has a problem because you're currently searching websites for it. What problems is she dealing with other than her coke head dj husband flunking drug test and losing his pain meds?

You're reading too much junk on the internet. That's not correct, i know. I was in drug court for a long time for some crazy stuff i did when I was in college and i failed many drug test for cocaine. I used those excuses and went to a dr trying to get a note saying that and he said that's not right. More than 1 dr said that so don't say doesn't know what he's talking about. Cocaine is the only drug i know of that you can't flush out of your system too. Only thing that will make you fail a test for cocaine, is cocaine. Try it if you want and use that false positive excuse and you'll get busted. I've even taken a drug test after using the stuff they say will cause a false positive and i passed.
