would the methadone pill show up in the urine test any different than the liquid methadone? Would you get a difference in the test than you normally would get. Or is methadone liquid the same as methadone pill? Does it read the same? I know I probably don't make any sense, I hope someone knows what I am trying to say. I am going on vacation and I don't have enough methadone so I am going to have to guest dose. But I have some prescription methadone pills. I also have some liquid. But I don't want to fail the drug test either, but I may have to mix the two methadones in order to keep from guest dosing. Can anyone answer this for me. I leave in 2 weeks.
If you take liquid methadone and take a prescription methadone pill, then take a urine test?

I know I sound stupid. But I am just worried. I have never failed a drug test at the clinic. I don't want to fail one now. They told me they would make an exception dose for me, since I left and was only gone 1 month and was up to a phase 3. But, they turned me down. So now, I have no take homes only Sunday doses. And I leave next weekend for vacation for a week. I know I can split my dose in half. Thank gosh I have this Sunday and Monday the holiday and next Sunday for take homes. I can make that last 3 days. I am on 60 mg. I have 7- 10mg pills. I may have to dose 1 time. Maybe 2 times. but that is all I am going to do. i wil be okay. IF, IF, I can pass the drug test when I get back to the clinic and they don't see that I have been taking the pills...I should be ok...someone tell me please. i know it is dishonest..but I gotta do what I gotta do.

you have absolutely nothing to worry about! The active ingredient is the same, and that is all they check for. I know that the test usually just says "yes" or "no" answers, and does not give the levels of the drug.
One time I had a test that came up dirty for other opiates. I was clean, and I knew it, although I did have a prescription for oxycontin xr for breakthrough pain, I still knew I was clean. I requested a second test to find the levels, which were negligent, and to this day, I attribute the trace positive finding to eating a loaf of poppy-seed bread from the health food store! The Poppy Seed defense is Real!
Don't worry, you will be fine!
