I am prescribed 75mg nucynta,50mg Kadian,150mgLyrica,4mg Zanaflex,and 500mg Naprelan. I did however take various cold and sinus otc meds in the week leading up to the test, and mini thins for some energy. At the Dr. visit he acted like it was no big deal and no problem. I get a letter in the mial a few days later "firing" me so to speak. I think I have a new Dr. lined up for my spinal treatment but, I want to know why this showed up. I need the answer for, not that he will continue to treat me but I NEED to know for myself! All these meds scare the heck outta me but the sugery is not my answer. Please help in any way you can.

i would like to know the answer also. i am on nucynta and exalgo. first time for both. I went to my doctors yesterday and they did a urine strip test in the office. It came back positive for methadone, So he is sending the urine to the lab but said if it still is positive for methadone i will no longer be able to be prescribed narcotics, I am in shock. I have never taken methadone in my life. I am now wondering if the nucynta can give a false positive? What is also funny is that methadone was the only drug in my system. The exalgo is time release dilaudid, why didn't that show up? ny help would be appreciated!

I know different otc meds can give false readings for other drugs. If you told the dr ? why he did this. I went to pain clinic in am on Mon as pain out of control all weekend. told to go to er where I was given a shot and told to call clinic. Called and told nurse bad connection and could not understand her. All I got was something about bringing in pills so I took in one of each thinking maybe adjustments would be made. Went there almost 6 yrs and in 2 days I would be calling for new monthly scripts of pain meds. Went for a urine test came back and nurse told me I was discharged and given 2 weeks of methadone and ms contin which I took for nearly 8 yrs. Did not do right. In pain and frustrated. Do like me and search for new Dr. I have
Rhuematoid Arthritis, peripheral neuropathy, Fibro, Raynauds, OA and just pain chronic pain in body. Read and question about meds as will help to become more familiar with what you are taking. If you get a new med and feel uncomfortable about anything only get about a weeks worth of the med and see how you feel also remember if you are on time release that med is in your body for more than 4 or 6 hrs. If you get good results from med that is short release then you can go to time release. Best of luck and remember read and question. This will help fear. Bnanaa

Today I got a call from my pain clinic out of the blue, after being a member for over 6 years saying I was being dismissed for a bad urine test. It showed Methadone and I have not taken Methadone in over 5 years. I was so shocked and upset when the Dr. told me that she called me back. She had called the drug screen company and asked them if Nucynta could read a false positive for Methadone, and they said that was possible. I was so happy to find this and I hope you will read this and it will make you feel better.
