for over a month and took drug test at doctors ,it came back bad ,,did drs office mess up?? she wouldnt have taken test had she not taken anything for over a month.
MARINNR, Funny thing about methadone, since it is a long lasting drug, that also means it has a long half life. That means half of the substance is still in your system at a mean rate of 24-36hrs. It all really depends on how long she was on it and how much. Could be as little as 4-7 days or as much as 8-59 days.One more thing, standard drug tests don't test for methadone, it would have to be the 10 panel which is not widely used. I hope this answers your question. Take care, Julie
