Is methadone completly out of your system in 72 hours, or does it take longer since methadone seems to last longer that 4 - 6 hours?

Although your system can rid itself of the methadone within about 72 hours in most cases, traces of it will still be detected in your urine for up to 3 weeks...longer if you get a blood test.

It took me 3 months to kick methodone. After that, I had paws for another 4 months. Don't get started on that evil stuff unless you plan to stay on it for life. It's by far the worst withdrawl ever. Beware, you have been warned. Take Suboxone or subutex instead. I can't stress this enough. I wouldn't wish methodone withdrawl on my worst enemy. I went to treatment for one month to kick it. I was twice as sick after my 30 days were up. I had to go straight to a halfway house. Don't, Don't, Don't, Don't, add infintinum

Although the metabolism of drugs will vary somewhat from one individual to another, the usual period of detection of methadone by a urine drug screen is 5-7 days. Therefore, you should be fine for a test performed in 2 weeks. (This was the reply I just received online and asked this question to a dr. and that was his response to my question?Here is my question to him. I had taken 40 mgs of methadone today. This was the only day I took the methadone. Tomorrow I start back on my oxy's 40 mgs that I have been taking for years but ran out, thats why I took the methadone. I have a urine test in 2 weeks.

For blood testing....

Methadone and Oxycodone are usually detectable for approximately 6 hours.



This information, however, is only relevant for blood testing, the times are different for urine, hair and saliva.

This is also not the same as the time it takes to process completely out of your body.

Are there any other questions or comments?

I would say yes it will,if they test for it.Some employers don't guess some feel if its there it would be because of possible rehab.program.also the more items tested for the more $$$ they pay.So its maybe a chance it won't be looked at.Good luck

I had the test done 2 weeks AFTER I took 5 during a 3 day time period. I had ran out of my normal medication and took these to help with my chronic pain. Needless to say I was kicked out of the treatment plan because I showed positve for methodone.

Just got a call from my dr. I've been discharged. So yes it did show up. Ill be going to the methadone clinic I guess. I'm so tired of being on this s***. I'm a drug addict because of these drs to begin with. I hate being sick so oh course I'm gonna take something. I'm a functional user because I have ligit problems but regardless, getting on opiods is the stupidest thing I've ever done. Its worse when you really need pain relief.
