if someone is on methadone at a clinic, and is taking the monitored amounts there, is there a drug test that I can buy at home that will not test or recognize the methadone, so that I can determine if other drugs (specifically opiates) are being used?? Or will all home tests pick up on the methadone, making it impossible for me to tell if other drugs are present? I am aware of the methodone use, obviously, so can someone hide behind that messing up a home test?? Thanks

This question has also been asked and answered here: Does methadone show up on a drug test?
u can start drink lots of water asap & pee as much as u can & if test is in morning time,be shore to piss 3 or more times before test (drink a gallon water a hr. or so before test), pee in tolet first, than in cup right in mid-stream. opiates wont show up after a day or 2, or get someone to piss for u in a empty methadone bottle, and tape to upper leg close to gruin or around armpitt(93 to 98 degrees) it dont matter if they do methadone or not if u get the cheap test( opiates,bentzos,thc, cocaine, metheaphaitions)
Methadone is a synthetic opiate therefore is different from heroine, codeine, etc. In any drug test - be it an FBI type or the cheapest dipstick test sold at the local pharmacy - methadone is a separate category. In other words if someone had taken methadone ONLY and NOT heroine or any other legal or illegal opiate that person should come up clean for opiates as well, obviously, as cocaine, any speed, PCP or anything else.
