I have chronic pain in my back and legs due to degenerative arthritis and fibromalgia. I've had trouble keeping a doctor because the drugs never show up when I am drug tested. I use them faithfully and cannot understand why this happens. How else can I prove that I am taking them?

Fentanyl has to be tested for specifically but Dilaudid should show up as an opiate. Perhaps you are a very fast metaboliser? Have you tried taking one a few hours prior to being tested? It is very odd that these meds oe their metabolites do not show up. Are you seeing a PM Dr or are you seeing a Primary Care Dr? If you are seeing a PCP then perhaps he is not educated as to what metabolites are proper or doesnt understand that Fentanyl has to be tested for specifically. Very strange indeed! Be sure that he sees you wearing your patch each time you see him. Perhaps he may want to test both blood and urine. Surely they will show in one or the other but then again he nedds to know what exactly to look for.
