How does ms contin (morphine) and oxycodone show up on a (blood,in-house urine, and lab urine) drug test? How long are they detectable? How do the two drugs differ in comparison from one test to the other? Do they both just show up as opiates?
Please only respond if you are qualified to answer the question. Thanks!

Morphine and oxycodone are both opiates and will show up as an opiate if detected in a urine drug test. Oxycodone is less likely to show up compared to morphine (because it is derived from thebaine which is undetectable)
They are detectable in the urine up to 4 days after using.
Blood tests are rare and expensive.

although morphine and oxys are both opiates,they will most likely be able to detect the differrence due to the abuse problem most doctords have urine tests that test for opiates and then break them down into thier own different catagorys.

Ms Contin and Oxycodone, will show up differently on any drug panel. The reason that I know this is because I have to take both, and do get tested from time to time by my doctor. One will show up as an Opiate, and the other will show up as an Narcotic. Something that the lab specialists will look for is the chemicals that our bodies will produce, when trying to break down each of the chemical components in the medications. Even if a standard urinalysis is done, they still can detect if either is in your system. It isn't until they send it to the lab for further analysis, that they can determine exactly which medications you may have taken. I hope this is of some help, I had my doctor tell me specifically that each of these medications will be detected in your system for 2 to 3 days. Although, now if you were comparing say an Oxycontin and a Percocet (Oxycodone), as far as any drug panel goes they would show up as the same thing because they are the same thing.
The difference is how long each will provide you with pain relief. Oxycontin is continuous release, where as, Percocet generally only provides relief for a few hours.
