I have been clean for 8 years now on Methadone. I have been at my clinic for almost 9 years and have NEVER failed a drug test. I had two weeks take homes and a drug test came back diluted (low creatinine 14). Recently found out I am pregnant and the drug tests started coming back as diluted from the first test they gave me while pregnant. I am not doing anything to try and pass the tests because I am CLEAN. Also just found out my iron is very low (hemoglobin & blood cell count is low). I have had an observed drug test and random drug tests since my first came back with low creatinine or creatitine which ever it is and they all came back the same. Low creatitine, went from in 100's down to 14. I have to drive over 30 minutes one way to my clinic & really need to get my take homes back. Could the cause be that I am pregnant with low iron? Thanks!

If your counselor isn't helping you with this, you need to ask for a different counselor. My counselor speed up my take home process because I was doing so well and she adores me, I guess because she is tired of dealing with the people who don't try and that I do.

I don't know any other answer and I don't think anyone else would know more than you after 9 years of going to the clinic. I mean, I know you have a specific question about pregnancy but I think the issue is why hasn't your counselor helped figure this out with you?

Babys take half your dosage so if you need 50 mil then you need 100 mil while pregnant so basically you need double the dose if your pregnant and i know love cos ive been there. Hope that helps ;) xx

It just happened to me today too!! I didn't even know about such a thing. I have been on monthly take homes for 6-7 years and been going to the clinic for over 8 years and never once a dirty. I do 'diversion' regularly and never a dirty. I am so pissed off right now. The nurse asked me if I drank a lot of water the day before, or do I take diuretics or drink alcohol. No, No, No!!! My creatine level was 15.8 and now I am concerned since I KNOW I didn't do any of those things. Heck, I don't even smoke cigarettes. So I looked it up when I got home and there are many things. for one, they should have asked me about my diet and I would have told them that I eat very little protein. I have been living off of oatmeal for months because it's the only thing that goes down easily and stays in my stomach. Vegetarians can have low creatine, too. Also, I have hepatitis C and that can cause it, not to mention that I am nearly 62 and age can be a factor due to less muscle mass. Nonetheless, I am going to the doctor and have it checked out.

Silver just curious where your clinic is located ? I can't imagine such unfair Inhumane treatment. I hope this was resolved in your favor and things return to a more normal way of life. God bless

Possibly you may be low due to pregnancy, I hope you are taking folate as this is a safe and recommended compound? for ensuring your unborn bub is as protected from Spina-bifida and other related problems...low iron is very common with fertile and pregnant females....you may need a supplement like folate or some safe form of iron that's all...good luck and godspeed for your bub......ap.
