I will be going for a job interview at some point next week, more than likely it will be early in the week ( in about 3 days) today i took 4 10mg methadone pills. It will be a saliva test that i have to take, how long will the drug be detectable in a saliva test?

I'm prescribed 4 x 10mg of methadone per day. I don't want to take that much so I finally got to 10mg a day and the last 2 weeks only 5mg a day. Can a swab test tell how much dosage of methadone you are taking if sent to the lab? Please help

In order for Methadone to show in a oral or urine, they have to test for it separately.

Hello folks, methadone won't show up in any test unless it's asked upon to look specifically for it. It doesn't show up as methadone it turns to another substance.

This answer is really not true or false. Here is the bottom line with methadone and drug tests. What is accurate; Methadone is not a true opiate and will not show up on a 5 panel drug screen due to the fact that they only look at the following drugs:

1. Thc
2. Cocaine metabolite
3. Amphetamines
4. PCP
5. Opiates

So if you are taking a 5 panel screen you're golden. However the false part is this; if you're taking a 10-panel screen you will come up positive for methadone in saliva if you've taken it within 48 hrs (up to 7 days in urine). These 10 panels add the following drugs in addition to the 5 previous I listed. 1. methadone 2. Barbiturates 3. Benzodiazepines 4. Quaaludes.

The last one seems to differ from test to test but they may or may not include any of the following: Propoxyphene (darvocet), triycilic antidepressants, & Oxy (the opiate test apparently doesn't cover oxy). Under no circumstance have I ever witnessed a 10 panel that doesn't test for methadone.

I know this is an old post but just in case people end up here looking for answers I wanted to give an accurate response. You can always ask when at the testing location what type of screening they use. They may be a tad suspicious but just tell them you want to know if a prescription you take will show up so you can explain to your employer ahead of time. That way you aren't stressing after the fact for nothing. Try stinger or ultra wash detox mouthwash 15 min or so before hand to ease the worry and you'll be fine.

It depends on how often you take methadone. If you take it all the time then I'd say theres a 95% chance it will show up. If you only use like once every other month or so then id say it's a 70% chance of testing positive. Methadone needs to be tested seperatly for though. It's synthetic so it doesn't show up as an opiate.

If its mouth swab after about four days you should alllll be fine...I'm on probation and my p.o tests me every single time...just make sure the days leading up to the test u brush your teeth vigorously 5 times a day and WORK the gum line. And use mouth wash regularly... Works best if the toothpaste/mouthwash has peroxide in it

Does anybody know if they test for methadone in saliva test? I know in urine analysis they have to test for it separately so if they do a 5 or 7 panel test it will not show up in urine but does anybody know about the saliva test if they test for methadone?

I'm no expert, I can only speak from experience and I was drug tested for a job yesterday and it was specifically marked as methadone was one of the things tested for (on paper at least) and I take 80mg per day everyday and I passed it no questions asked. I don't know how and I don't know if they mark it to try to scare you into admitting to something but 100% passed.
I do know that places have to do a specific and specialized test to detect it and I'm guessing they don't want to pay up for it but expect by making sure you see that it's on the list that you will tell someone.
I don't know about how many people get this for pain management but I know for me and everyone I know it's for addiction treatment and I'm definitely not going to apply for a job and admit to drug abuse without them managing to find it first.

Don't rat yourself out!!

I have been taking liquid methadone for 5+years and have taken 100mg that entire time. I recently stopped using it and during that time had many urine screens at the methadone clinic I attended. I assure everyone that the test must test specific for methadone for it to show up in urine or saliva. I don't know detection times but I quit cold turkey and know I felt my body detoxing for 10+ days. No methadone and norcos do not show up as barbiturates and aren't even the same. Methadone is a synthetic opioid and norcos are an opiate.

That is not true. I just had a saliva test a week ago and I had methadone and Percocet in my system and the methadone showed up.
