I have been taking Roxys 30 for about two years. I get ramdomly tested at my doctors office and have never had an issue as I do not take any other medication. I did take MS Contin on a Friday, and was tested the next Wedesday. I failed the test by testing positive for morphine. I thought the MS contin would be out of my system in 2 to 3 days. Am I wrong? I am going to talk to my doctor this week but I do not know what to say as I did nothing else to make my fail this test. Is it possible that the ms contin was still in my system? Thanks in advance guys.
PS> The MS Contin was perscribed to me a while back and I took it when I ran out of my Roxys. I did explain this to my doc already but I want to know why this happened.

Morphine stays in the system 5 to 7 days. So that is why you tested positive. Glad your doctor is understanding.

Well I cannot see what the big deal is because you made the doctor aware of the medication, so what test could you have failed... if all medications were known by the current doctor then I am confused... quite frankly you did not fail anything unless the doc was trying to add another medication for you and something showed up in your blood levels..that can be a big issue, otherwise I am confused about this situation but these pain medications are tricky they pretty much stay lingering in your system... good luck to you my friend..please be careful... vtech10

MS Contin is a long acting type of Morphine is why it still showed in your drug test. Since you told your doctor you took it he should understand why it is showing on your test. Godd luck to you.

Laurie is right and MSContin can be detected up to 7 days after taking and that is why it did show up in your system. Hopefully, since this is something you were prescribed previously, he will be okay with it.
