You may try taking your medication in front of your Dr. in their office, and either stay until the drugs peak time has reached your system, then take the drug screen, if you have the time, or take the meds in front of your Dr. and return later to take the test. This might sound like a waste of time and a 'pain' (no pun intende), but it is better than searching for Dr. # 4. Drug screens are dependant on the time between the sample taken and time being tested, so you need to make sure they are testing correctly, in a timely manner. Also, are they all using the same test, or sending it out to the same lab? If so you can request another lab, or even a bloodtest. Vicoprofen only shows up as opiate on a urine test, I am not sure, but they may have to specifically test for klonopin. Also try eating some poppy seeds to check the tests accuracy, they do show up as an opiate on a urine drug screen. If you do that and the tests are still negative, they need to use a more sensitive/specific test. It could also be you metabolize the drugs too rapidly, or your dose is too small-although both of those scenarios are unlikely. Obviously these Drs. are afraid that you are diverting (selling or trading) your meds. This is extremely illegal, and the DEA is really strict about drug diversion. Your Dr. could get in huge trouble (fines, lost license, jail time), but most importantly, drug diversion makes it harder on everyone who has a legitimate need for pain medication. I am not suggesting that is your case, but that is what the Drs. are very concerned with. (My own drug/urine test came back positive for oxycodone when I hadn't taken any in over 3 months! Also tested positve for valium after taking only 2.5 mg, (my prescribed reduction amount), and take 4 x10mg norco-hydrocone- which also tested positive on the test.) Your vicoprofen should show up. I hope this helps!
