My Physician called me in to his office. Myself I thought it had to do with x-ray, urine test. He told me I tested positive for Methodone which I do not take. He has me on OxyCodone 30mg, Clonazapam 5mg 6 daily, Hydroxyzine 25mg, Naproxen 500mg x 2, Nortriptyline 25mg, Escitalopram 10mg, Rabeprazole Sodium 20mg, Estrogel, Symbicort, Ventolin, I had also bought at the Pharmacy Nyquil Night-time for a Headcold. I flipped out on him. I said you know my intolerance to medication why would I even think of taking Methodone. My husband takes it who he totally resents and told him to find another Physician, however his Methodone is under Lock and Key. Believe me when I say I have no idea where the key even is, even if I did I wouldn't touch the stuff I see what it does to him, like not being with it. Anyways bottom line where in hell did the methodone come from? I was in tears when I left his office. He told me to taper myself off of the OxyCodone and the other Pain pills he has me on b/c he can no longer give them to me. I told him I want another urine test done. I said now if it comes up negative, which I have a feeling will b/c of all of the medications he has me on. However he said there is nothing I can do. If the Board of Directors calls on me, I would have some explaining to do if I continue to prescribe to you. I have been on Oxycodone and Hydroxyzine for I'm guessing 15yrs. and he feels I can taper myself off of them within 2mths. He did try different meds previously like Morphine etc. but they did not cut the pain. On top of this he has in the past 6mths when I went back to the Oxy knowing that this is what worked, he cut my medication by 50%. Pretty much telling me he didn't want my husband taking my pills, NOT!! As I said he has a real hate on for him, I think its b/c my husband is a big guy and my Physician is medium built. My husband has had this issue for yrs. Little guy afraid of the big guy, its a joke! Please someone reply to me, I am at a total loss how this happened. Anyone?????

Mariska, Besides urine tests that are so inaccurate, ask for a mouth swab or get a blood test immediately looking for Methadone. If it does not show Methadone, make a copy of that paper, show him the list of OTC products that you take, and ask that one of your pills has a particular ingredient that would do this.
You want your results changed to false positive. If you are dismissed, leave your copies their and ask for his laboratory name and contact them with what transpired and get a letter stating they are not 100% positive. Then go to your State of Consumer, Health Department, Dept. of Licensure, Complaints and file a complaint.
