... oxycontin. I take oxycodone and oxycontin and must test for workmans comp to show I am indeed taking what they buy for me. I have also had amoxycillin and ibuprofen as well as armour thyroid and high blood pressure meds but nothing else.I don't smoke pot but have been one concert where I could barely smell it. I don't take antidepressants and don't remember eating a poppy seed. I'm stresssed about how this could happen particularly because last year one of my urine tests came back as a false negative stating I was negative for anything which was ridiculous since I take oxy 80s every 8 hours and the oxy ir in between. Because the doctor has known and treated me for 15 years he realized I was truthful but now I worry every test that the comp people will stop buying my meds which I depend on to get through life with constant pain. What can I do to avoid false test results in the future.I'm not trying to pull anything here.I just want a true reading of what I have truly taken. Thanks
I hate to say this, but drug tests are fairly often wrong. If you have a false negative or positive, ask that the sample be mailed to a lab or to take another test from a different box of tests. My counselor said she had a series of people all test positive for the same drug and all swore they hadn't taken it, so, she took a test from the same box ( I mean the big box they were shipped in) and lo and behold, she came up positive. She threw them out and readministered tests from a different box, and everyone was fine. They ship those kits in the back of big trucks that get too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter and it can ruin some of the tests. If people don't read the test correctly( placing the test where they can read it at eye level) it will test inaccurately and even in a lab, there is human error. Just ask to have yours mailed off, offer a blood sample or ask for a test from a different lot/box.
