I am prescribed 2 per day but took about 6 per day and have a urine immunoassay at pain clinic in three days I will not have taken any in the three days before the test- will the concentration show up or just positive for the test? I.E. How long does it take to clear your system?

First I would like to say that you should never take more than prescribed. If the dose you are on is not helping your pain, then you need to speak to your pain doctor about it, not do your own increases. Second, it depends on what type of test they are doing. Some just check to see what is in your urine, but more advanced tests can tell how much is in your system. Since you or we do not know what type of test is being administered, I just wish you luck. Being honest with your pain doctor is very important. If you are tolerant of your dose, you must tell your doctor & be as honest as you can... Mary

I'm on quite a bit of dilaudid but don't get tested but Mary's right that depending on what kind of test they give you(all though if you know the same day it's probably just a simple test) but they could take hair and determine within a few days of what & how much you took. If you don't take anything for three days you run the risk of showing negative and they'll think your selling your meds so either way it's not a good situation. Good luck

As the others have said, they can test for just the presence of a drug or they can test to see how much drug is being processed by the body and if that is consistent with what your dose is. In this way they can tell if you are taking too little or too much drug,if they do this kind of test. It may be that your Dr just tests for the presence of the drug and if he does this, you should be ok. If he sends it out to the lab for a quantitave test though, he may be able to tell that either you dont have as much drug as you should or that you have too much and therefore can tell you have been noncompliant with your meds and this can violate your contract (if you have one)
