To make it short, I go to the cancer center for monitoring.recently they started a pain management. I went for the first time a week ago,they did a drug screen, the rules came back with methanphatamines, anphetamines, ritilitic acid,oxymorphone,I don't take any of those,I take klonopin 1mg. Zoloft 100mgx2,protonix 40mg. Phenergan 25mg. Oxycodone 10mg. Xanaflex2mg. So I don't understand how this happened. The dr. Is very strict an that's ok but not friendly,I go back in a week and will most likely be dismissued for something that is not my fault.I'm going to ask for a retest but don't think they will.it bothers me for various reasons,1)I'm not a druggie,2)it will be noted and I've passed all,done everything I'm suppose to.
Was it just a urine test or was it blood tested by gas chromatography? A major issue these days is that many drugs can show false positives due to metabolites present in your blood. The amphetamine positive can be caused by pseudoephedrine type decongestants. Opiates turn into all sorts e.g. codeine shows a false positive for morphine. Xanax has no benzo type metabolites, like valium which has two, and I'm not sure about clonazepam.
The point is they should realise, at this stage, you have nothing at all to gain by dishonesty.
I'm really sorry as you are only a year older than me.
You need to have a positive relationship with your doctor. If you are still in pain and stressed by treatments, then you need to move on. Have you looked into Eastern medicine? Very effective pain management and mood elevation. Pharmaceuticals are not the only option and they come with so many side effects. I have used them myself with very positive results, sometimes miraculous when you consider they are herbal.
