Cindy I am confused by your question. It will show up as oxycodone. But that is the expected result unless it isn't prescribed and somebody is worried because they aren't supposed to be taking "anything" or are taking meds and just not that one??? Not sure what you are really seeking here... but I hope this helps you. OxyCodone is it.
Actually, it may not show up at all. A 5 panel test only test for opiates (drugs derived from naturally occuring alkaloids of the poppy plant-not to be confused with opioids which are any drugs chemically related to the poppy plant, be they natural, synthetic or semisynthetic-this gets rather confusing unless you are a chemist) Oxycodone, a semi synthetic opioid, requies a specific test for thebaine derived drugs which I dont believe a 5 panel has. 5 panel usually picks up opiate drugs like morphine and codeine which are naturally occuring alkaloids from the opium poppy-also heroin(diacetylmorphine) which breaks down into a morphine metabolite. I take Oxycontin and oxycodone and was required by my job to take a 5 panel test which came up negative since it doesnt test for thebaine derivatives. If they do a higher panel test, like a ten or twelve, those usually cover the thebaine derivatives. See my reference copied below:
Urinalysis testing for opiates, whether prescribed or
illicit, generally detects the metabolite of heroin and codeine,
namely morphine. Morphine is further metabolized
to 2 main substances, 3-morphine-glucuronide and 6-morphine-
glucuronide. The 3-morphine-glucuronide metabolite
accounts for 50% of the morphine that is excreted
renally and can produce hyperalgesia and neurotoxicity.
Fentanyl is usually not detected in urine screens because of
lack of metabolites, and oxycodone is not usually detected
because of its derivation from thebaine (a compound that is
not detected in the urine). Codeine is extensively metabolized,
and 10% to 15% of the dose is converted to
morphine and norcodeine. All 3 compounds are detected in
the urine after ingestion.
See, so to detect for oxycodone, fentanyl and methadone they must have special tests to pick those up. a 5 panel will not test for oxycodone. Pain management usually uses higher end test than a 5 panel to pick up the many types of prescribed and illicit opioids and other controlled substances.
