The only thing that would show up as Methadone is Methadone if they are testing for the specific drugs.

Most standard urine tests do not, they just test for drug classes and concentrations, such as opiates, Benzodiazepines and Amphetamines.

Are you currently taking some sort of opiate?

There have been many posts recently about false positives on urine tests, so it makes me wonder if there is possibly a bad batch out there.

they have to be testing for methadone specifically....otherwise it doesnt show up!! Only clinics and doctors with reasons test for methadone...probation or work drug tests will NOT test for is a synthetic narcotic

Hi everyone. This is what I have figured out, and i really wish the doctors would educate themselves! they are also freaked out because of insurance regulations and all the people over using narcotics, that they're randomly drug testing everybody (or monthly, like me) and not really looking at the results and the people themselves. as a whole. In an entire year mine have come back flawed and completely inaccurate 5 times out of 13. That tells me there it's a serious problem. Twice it is said there was methadone in my urine, twice oxycodone (which I am no longer taking, and once it said there was absolutely no drugs in my urine at all... and trust me with my herniated disc and my back problems and rheumatoid arthritis I am taking my medication every single day. The Dr. Never once truly asked what's going on, or talked to me about it on detail...because I was super upset after the first time and did as much research as possible said to him this is got to be flawed and his answer was well 20 percent of the time it can be wrong. And my thoughts are..."well that means 20 times out of 100 it can be wrong!"
That's a lot of times and a whole lot of inaccuracy! So why then do I get looked at as a criminal? Why then do I have to come in every two weeks for my medication instead of once a month and get double urine test for 6 months now because suddenly I'm looked at as some sort of criminal or drug peddler? I get that there it's a huge drug problem, but for those of us in Legitimate constant pain who unfortunately have to take this stuff. .. I beg the doctors to do their research! I have! (Even the urine testing companies will admit how inaccurate the Damn things are!)

It happened to me as well. It's chemical twin (I'll call it that because I'm not a scientist) is found in other medicines apparently. ... common ones such as cold medicines. I had never in my life taken Methadone (my best friend died from taking I wouldn't touch it! ) yet my doctor was convinced. Even after i printed out the facts i found online (that his drug tests are only 90 percent correct) 1 out of ten are wrong! Anyway.. hope this helps. You may find more info doing other searches online (or probably already have)

I tested positive for methadone last week and it freaked me out because I've never touched it but I do take zzzquil to sleep .. I think the covering doctor believed me but who knows ... I'm a chronic pain patient with fibromyalgia and other crap .. That was 5 days ago she wouldn't refill my oxycodone and oxymorphone and since they make you run out before you get more I'm withdrawing... So I have to see what happens Monday... NyQuil can give a false positive for methadone

July 30, 2015. I have been dropping UA's for 13 years and never EVER have I had a dirty one. I am beyond done with all that drug addiction s***. Now, out of the clear blue I am "positive" for Methadone which I have never ever taken. I told them they better run it again cuz that cant be! they started threatening me this and with that.. I am not going to LIE- dont have too! So, now they tell me they have never seen a false positive for Methadone. After 5+ hours researching this THEY are obviously lying cuz it happens all the time. Why? That, I dont know yet.

False-positive methadone results with diphenhydramine[15] and doxylamine[16] also have been reported. Daily doses of 100–200 mg of diphenhydramine resulted in false-positive UDS results for three patients.[15] The urine drug concentration needed to show a positive result was 10 mg/L. Doxylamine intoxication resulted in false-positive results for both methadone and opiates when urine samples were checked using EMIT d.a.u (methadone) and EMIT st (opiates) on admission.[16] Opiates were not detected with Abuscreen radioimmunoassay (Roche Diagnostic Systems, Inc., Montclair, NJ) testing. The urine drug concentrations reported were 50 mg/L (for methadone) and 800 mg/L (for opiates).
