I Am RX'ed Ms-Contin 30Mg., & Percocet 10Mg., By My Pain Dr. My Question Is Since Percocet And OxyContin Have The Same Main Ingredient In Them Except The APAP That Is In The Percocet Will It Show Up The Same On A UA For The Pain Clinic?

Yes, since they both contain Oxycodone, a test that checks for the specific opiate and its metabolites will show them both as being the same thing.

What you could run into, however, is a problem if you have been taking more than the amount prescribed. Most pain management clinics use tests that also show the level of the opiate(s) in your body, to make sure you are using them as prescribed. They will expect the levels to be in a certain range, so if they are higher than the expected amounts, it could cause you a problem.

Are there any other questions?

With The Pain Clinics That Send Them To Labcorp For The Testing Would This Be The Same Issue About The Levels Being Too High Or Not?? Also Being On Opiates For Years From The Clinic And Having No Failed Test What Should Be Done In The Situation That They Say The Levels Are Too High??

Thanks For ALL The Info And Thanks In Advance!!!

Unfortunately, just knowing what lab they send the test to doesn't clarify which test it is. Every lab has multiple tests they can do, it just depends on how much the person doing to test is willing to pay.

And as to the levels, if they test too high, or what have you, that is entirely up to the pain clinic and what their policies are. It varies from clinic to clinic, some will not do anything if only one test is off and there are others that will drop you as a patient immediately. It is just one of the hazards of breaking their rules, which you agree to, when you become their patient.

Is there anything else?

No, even on the smaller 5 or 7 panel UA screens they test specifically for Oxycontin. Yes, they both contain oxycodone but they have an advanced test that shows up Oxycontin! Your getting set up for disaster! I know from personal experience!!!

MS-Contin is sustained-release morphine sulphate. it is not the same as oxycodone.

yes they can tell if your taking oxycontin.
can anyone tell me though if im prescibed oxycontin and took some percocet (oxycodone) for breakthru but wasnt prescribed will i be ok on the test-they dont send it out its a panel test in office. will they see i took percocet or since they are looking for oxycontin wont the percocet not show up seperate from the oxycontin.(kinda a reverse question from the above reply who wanted to know if oxycontin will show up the same as percocet which even though its oxycodone the levels will be off) but i believe im ok cause the percocet would show up in the opiate column right..
so i get oxycontin but took few percocet and can anyone tell me if i should be ok on a panel test since it wont throw my levels off and should come up with the oxycontin (oxycodone)
i know if you take percocet rx and took oxycontin they would see you took oxycontin but i dont think they can tell the percocet if your prescribed oxycontin. any help..thanx.
im giving me 72 hours without any percocet to be safe and just take the oxycontin and shouldnt this be enough time for the percocet to leave my body anyways and just show the oxycontin. just doing that to be safe. thanx

Oxycodone is oxycodone... Contin simply implies time released. Now MS Contin is Morphine Sulfate that is NOT oxycodone in any form. That will show different on a lab or panel test. Some misinformed people will tell you the hydrochloride (hcl) will show up different from percocets to OxyContin or roxiecodones (contins). This is bullcrap as well all oxycodones (percocets, generic percocets, oxycodone hcl roxicets ect) have hcl . Hcl or hydrochloride is a binding agent. It is found in many substances even toothpaste and diahrea medicine. So to answer ur question yes oxycodone and OxyContin and roxiecodone will all show the same. However this only applies to the old formulation of OxyContin. The new AP ( the crush proof) that has the new gel in it I'm not sure about. That new tamper proof binder might have chemicals that could show up in a lab UA. As others have mentioned most PAin clinics will test the level of medications to make sure a patient is taking the correct amount. This is to ensure a patient isn't diverting ie selling thier meds or taking more than prescribed. On a side note opiate dependence is a rough way to live. Feeling like a zombie only crankier because you didn't have enough pills to gobble up is a terrible life. This is even worse for those people who are not only dependent but addicted as well ,as this type of person usually abuses the amount of meds and must then resort to buying them off the street and then stress about UA, pill counts ect. My advice is to ween yourself down to only the prescribed amount and follow your doctors orders. If you are not receiving enough meds to live near pain free impart that to ur doctor. However a lot of addicts simply use that as an excuse to obtain more pills so they can stay high longer and more often. A good way to insure you never run out is to use what I call the "every other day" approach. Every other day only take half of what you are prescribed. Then you have the option of the next day using a little extra or just using the prescribed amount and having some extra for a rainy day. This method still allows a person to enjoy a buzz without the added stress of cutting every day down to just getting by.
