No you cannot! Although a controlled substance, it only HAS the opiate effect, it is not an opiate! I have been tested many times, while I was taking the prescription for some major back surgery. I am an RN, so we would take regular drug screens and it never showed up, They knew I was taking it and it was a legit rx, but because of my job, I was tested frequently and it never showed up. On another note... although it's not an opiate, it having the opiate effect in the Central Nervous System, it's highly addictive and depending how long of time you've been on them as well as the amount of mgs a day, the worse your withdrawls will be. The best option if you do need to get off of them, is to ween yourself.
Cold Turkey is almost unbearable! Good Luck
