If you are talking about opiate urine testing then it can be detectable for weeks and sometimes longer. Methadone withdrawals don't start usually until the 5-7 day and can last for months and months. It is a totally different acting opiate then any other in the same category... Good luck... Dave

I AM ON my 3rd day of NO Methadone and have been on it 4yrs... I felt weak for the first 48hrs... but now I'm on my 3rd day of No Methadone and my urine test will be Negitive for Methadone in 2 more days... I have been with my clinic 4yrs-Started on 85mls of Methadone and seen over 20 drug workers along the way... and addicts opinions to... It takes 3-5 days on a low dose... maybe up to a week if it was a higher dose... (I stopped at 3ml) Three days ago... I felt better today (Day 3) than I have since I stopped... So Good Luck and IT'S NOT THAT BAD "AT ALL" If it were... I would go to my cupboard right now and take some Methadone that There's a bottle of??? No temptation AT ALL... I just can't wait to give my first Methadone free Test in my Clinic on Thursday!!! I will have been off it a week by then!!! Day 4 tomorrow!!! Bring it on... sleep is up and down though!! That's my only complaint!!! I need a sleeping tab to get to sleep and STAY that way until morning!!! Sleep is the only downer on my Detox. Hope this helps!!!
