I was taking 100 mg of methadone/day for 10 years and recently i decided to give the suboxone treatment a whirl. The dr. told me to not take the methadone 3 days prior to my first visit, so i did. He put me on 3 /day and said to come back in two weeks for my next script and urine test as well. EIGHTEEN days after my last dose of methadone the dr told me i wasnt doing as i should. I asked him wtf he was talking about and he said i was still taking the methadone. I was outraged. anyone ever heard of methadone staying in your system that long

I took about 40 mg of methadone on Jan 4th or so, I was tested a few days later and tested positive by drs. office. On Feb.12th 11 I had to take another test and come back today March 1st and was told that the Methadone was still in my system and was accused of taking more. I had to do another UA today , no news on this but in that month it dropped 30 points. ..Good Luck to you!

they say between 3-5 days and thats depending on your metabolism i have a slow metabolism with benzo's it took just over 4 weeks for my drug screen to be free of benzo's where as other ppl i know have been clean from them after 2 weeks. everyones different. iv also had drug tests done and just used heroin before i went to the test and its came back 'negative'??? even my key worker couldnt beleive it. some of the tests they use are pure crap.

My husband who has severe injuries. And had his spinal cord BURNED by a surgeonn during surgery (a Quack!). He will be on Oxycontin the rest of his life! Because of nerve damage this doctor caused my husband, he knocked over his medication into the toliet!!! Going into detox, someone gave him a few (10?) methadone pills 10mg. Which he took. Two months later, he has a drug test from his doctor, AND THE METH SHOWS UP!!! I know nothing about this drug, but I do know he showed positive for it nearly 60 days later! My husband is 6'1"ft.-150lbs-barely walks and cannot excercise. Beware!

since you have been taking such a high dose for 10 years it is possible for it to stay in your system for maybe 10 days but not 18 days i would ask for a retest GOOD LUCK TO YOU!

Drug Urine Tox tests are qualitative. Not normally quantitative.

Meaning, you get a POS/NEG answer from the Lab/Dr.'s office, NOT #s.

yes, that sounds about right. methadone stays in your system a long time, and the higher the dose you take, and longer you take it, the longer it stays. it has a half life of 15-60 hours which means, at 100mg dose, after 15-60 hours, half of that is left in your system, (50mg) after another 15-60 hours, it gets cut in half again, (25mg) and so on, every half life that passes half of the drug is eliminated, meaning the higher the dose you take, the longer is stays. for you being on a constant daily dose of 100mg everyday, since youre dosing more often than it takes for the previous day's dose to be eliminated, your blood levels are probably between 150-200mg, which is why you still had methadone in your system after 18 days.
