Oxycodone False Positive Test
Ok my drug test I bought from walmart came out negative and than I went right to probation to pee and it was dirty. How can that be possible. Is there any such thing as false positives ## Yes, false positives are known to occur on standard urine tests anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time they are used. The main problem stems from the fact that most places are not required to use certified drug tests. Therefore, they usually use cheaper ones that are not as accurate and can easily give false positives. The test your purchased at Wal-Mart would also not have been a certified test. The reason you got different results has to do with the sensitivity of the tests, their accuracy and quality control. In addition, some over the counter products can also cause false positives for some substances.... ...

Oxycodone False Positive
Will lomotial show up as a opiate in a drug screen? ## Hi Seth, Yes, Lomotil (atropine + diphenoxylate) is an opiate and will show up as one in a drug test. The average amount of time it takes for it to be completely out of your system varies on the type of test. For a urine test it can take 8-24hrs; for a saliva test it can take 1-2 days; and up to 90 days for a hair follicle test. These times are only estimates since many other factors play a role in how quickly it gets out of your system (i.e.; weight, age, metabolic rate, etc). You can view a detailed description of the drug by clicking on the link below... I hope this helps! ...

Oxycodone Urine Test-False positive urine screens
My boyfriend has been ina pain clinic for years with severe back problems.He is on 60mg of oxycontin, and 15mg oxycodone topped with morphine. He tool a urine test and was told dilata was found inhis system.He SWEARS he did not take anything he should not because the pain clinic is a godsend to him and would niot jepordize his standing.Can a false-positive reading be the problem here??? Please help!!! ## Yes, if the clinic is using one of the less expensive, non-certified tests, then the narcotics he is taking could be causing a false positive. It's been known to happen on those types of test anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. Learn more Oxycodone details here. Learn more Morphine details here. Did they try doing any further testing, such as sending samples out to an actual lab? ##... ...

False Positive For Oxymorphone On Urine Test
i'am prescribed morphinesulfate 30mg ER and oxycodne 15 mg,aprazolam 1mg.my counselor requires 5 week urine lab work.oxymorphone shows up positive,i think the morphine-n-oxycodone are why the oxymorphone is showing positive,as well as my primary care physician,who is looking into it ,yet i need too prove this too my counselor.if this is whats going on please help ## Oxycodone breaks down or metabolizes into 3 chemicals about 1/3 stays as oxycodone but around 1/3 turns into oxymorphone naturally in the body. If u weren't testing positive for it it would be strange.

tested postive for oxycodone false
I take hydromorph contin and hydromorphone for pain and my doctor did a urine test on me I'm also taking adderal, cloazapam,risperidal,divalproex and on my urine test results I tested postive both times for oxycodone how is this possible when I've not takin it at all. ## If your doctor is using a non-certified test, then false positives can occur anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. It is also well known the synthetic and semi-synthetic opiates, such as the Hydromorphone, can cause false positives on them for others in the same class, such as Oxycodone. What has your doctor said about it? ...

False Positive Of Oxicodone In Urine Test
I take soboxone and tested positive for opiates, specifically oxicodone. ## Hi Crys, Suboxone testing false positive for Oxycodone is actually one of the most frequently reported mishaps here. If the doctor or lab isn't using an actual certified test, false positives can occur anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. Which is pretty high, considering the outcome of these tests can effect people's lives so significantly. I would definitely attempt to fight back and get a certified test or just prove to them that their mistake is their mistake. You can find a reference stating that Suboxone causes false positives for Oxycodone via the link below: askdocweb.com/falsepositives.html I hope this helps! ## This post I'm replying to is pretty old but still...thank goodness - someone else... ...

False Positive On Drug Test
I take hydromorph contin and hydromorphone for pain and my doctor did a urine test on me I'm also taking adderal, cloazapam,risperidal,divalproex and on my urine test results I tested postive both times for oxycodone how is this possible when I've not takin it at all. ## Do you know what type of test your doctor is using? If they have really gone with the test from the lab that was the cheapest bidder for business, then it's likely that it's not a certified test and if that's the case, false positives are known to occur on the cheaper non-certified ones anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. The Hydromorphone is a semi-synthetic opiate and this class of narcotics is well known to cause false positives for other semi-synthetic opiates, like the Oxycodone. What has your d... ...

Urine test coming back with false positive
My friend is prescribed morphine sulfate only and has been urine tested twice with the same results of oxycodone and opiates, how can this be? ## Well, Morphine is an opiate and the false positive for Oxycodone is probably due to the test itself. The less expensive non-certified tests are known to give false positives anywhere from 4 to 50% of the time. What has his doctor said about it? ...

can ambian cause a false positive for methadone
I take Ambian to help me fall asleep as well as Oxycodone for chronic pain (along with other prescribed medications for bipolar/manic depression (Pristiq), anxiety disorder (Ativan), Fybromialgia (Lyrica), migraines (Fioricet), and muscle relaxers (Soma and/or Zanaflex). Will any of these (or a combination of them) cause a false-positive for Methadone in a UA? I need a FAST answer!! Thanx! ## NO URINE Screening test, and/or EIA or IMMUNOASSAY test is 100%, there are some cross reactions, and many false positives and false negatives. That is why it is required to CONFIRM all positives by an alternative methodology, preferably LC/MS/MS. It is expensive to run, and most hospitals do NOT have the equipment or ability to confirm. Good luck. ## NO ## Dr John is there any 100% urine test? I ha... ...

will vistiral cause a false positive for methadone
I am under contract with my PCP for oxycodone and ms contin (morphine). A recent urine screen showed positive for Methadone! I have never taken this however, I do take wellbutrin and vistiril prescribed by said PCP. She called me into her office, told me about the test and dismissed me as a patient. She gave me 1 month worth of scripts and sent me walking. Needless to say, I've been extremely upset knowing this is in my system and my doctor doesn't care. Is it possible that any of these or a combination of any would show up as methadone? ## Not if the test was CONFIRMED properly. ...

on suboxone false pos. for oxycodone
im on felony probation have violated twice due to failing drug test ihave been to rehab 4 times na alone obviously does not work for me tried methadone a few years ago it was a terrible failure for me i decided a couple of months ago to try suboxone it has been a tremendous help so far i have no desire to go back to go back to iv drugs and look forward to being off suboxone in time as well i took a urine test at my last probation appointment it showed a false positive for oxycodone so it was sent to a lab for confirmation. will the lab identify suboxone or just confirm no oxycodone? ## It really depends on what type of test they are using, most just check for the presence of narcotics, not a specific one, since they break down into very similar metabolites. Have you made sure they are a... ...

Prescribed Norco/Hydrocodone 10/325 and Fentanyl 50MCG, Urine Test showed positive for oxycodone
In February of 2014 i went from oxycontin to fentanyl patch. Also was prescribed Norco/Hydrocodone 10/325's (up to 3 times a day) took urine test and it tested positive for oxycodone and no hydrocodone. I DID NOT TAKE OXYCODONE. I may lose my freedom, 13 months hard time, lose my kids, lose my job( least of my worries) my wife, and the support of many people. I have been seeing this doctor for 7 years and never tested positive for anything I wasn't taking. I am scared to death. ## I'm 99.9% positive what you're experiencing is called "false positive" or even more likely, since no hydrocodone showed up, the actual test was defective. You've been a patient with the same practice seven years? Obviously, you're not a chronic drug screen failure subject, else ... ...

Does Olazapine cause false positive drug test for Benzodiazepine?
I have been taking 10mg of olazapine daily for about 2.5 years, will my urine drug test be positive for benzodiazepines? If it is positive, can GS/MC drug test reveal the specific drug I'm taking? ## I am sorry, but yes. I went to jail last Summer for 30 days for this. I think what you are referring to is Oprazolam, or something like that, dont remember exactly what is is called. ## Zyprexa is an antidepressant right? You should be fine. Thats the good news. Now here is the bad news: You will be fine because the GC/MS test DOES tell exactly what drug has been used. Its not like it says "Opiates" and you are cool, wether you are taking hydrocodone or oxycodone..the GC/MS knows...so I hope this helps. ## No, Olanzapine isn't known to cause a false positive for any other me... ...

Suboxone False Positive
I am not on suboxcine, and have not taken or done any, but my drug test keeps coming up positive for it. Is there anything such, other medications, stuff in food or drink, etc. that could be causing this false reading. please help ## It is possible with some other medications, for instance if you have taken anything that contains other synthetic opiates, such as Oxycodone or Hydrocodone. However, no, it should not just show up from foods or beverages. Can you post back with a list of the other medications you take, even over the counter items, so I can check for you? ## I have only taken suboxov in treatment 10 months ago, but my urine came back positive for suboxone. I am taking dilantin, motrin, celexa, melatonin, and remeron. What may have caused this? ## Can someone who is taking al... ...
