I swear on my kids lives that I have NEVER taken meds that were not prescribed to me and Morphine showed up. I'm being dismissed by my doc because of this. I'm mortified!! Please let me know if you have any idea how this could happen.
What in the heck shows up as Morphine on a drug test?

I just to the doctor office and the same thing happen to me.please help us I had a good Doctor.
I had a uds at my routine visit I took some tyl4 that I for a yr or so. My thoughts were since it was prescribed to me for a toothache it would work better and keep me from running out of my lortab. They talked about disc hard me I have taken pain meds for 12 yrs. please give your input. I was not trying to jeopardize my current pain mgmt help!!!
I had similar experience with my doc in Texas, I had been sick a n taking cough syrup. had to pay for hair test and it was resolved. Good luck
Codiene metabolizes into morphine. Have you taken any cough syrup with codeine in it? Poppy seeds used to but I believe that they adjusted the testing parameters to fix that. If you have taken anything with codeine though it will show morphine for sure!
March yourself back to your doc's office and demand a hair follicle test, or a blood test! I'm no expert re: drug tests, but I would make a ruckus if I had a false positive!! Print this out, what you've written here, and take it to your doctor and put it in his hands.
The squeaky wheel gets the grease!! Make them listen to you.
There are many substances that can show positive for morphine other than morphine itself. If you have taken any allergy medicine like Dimetapp (loratadine) it will cause a false positive. For a complete list I recommend the site www.askdocweb.com/falsepositive.html It gives a thorough list of medicines that can do this.
