I have been taking Oxycontin & Dilaudid/Hydromorphone for approx 9 mths due to extensive painful surgeries and they have been prescribed by a pain management Dr. I am ready to go to school to obtain my CDL & then go to work at the same company my husband works but i will need to take a urine test when i start school & then 3 weeks later another urine test one when i go for the new job. What can i use?
There is nothing you can do to mask the opiates in your system. People will tell you to drink tons of water or to take this or eat that, believe me,these people don't know what they are talking about. Just take the prescriptions with you when you test and you'll be fine.
Were your surgeries deemed failures?? It seems like a long time to be using pain killers for post-op pain or is there more problems... Good luck... Dave
I had 7 surgeries on my RT knee and my knee was always in pain until the 7th surgery. So I'm wondering if this is whats happening to you?? Sorry, just curious... Dave
I hate to point out the obvious, but, if you are planning to drive a truck or other long term driving assignment, that is likely to really aggravate a back problem, hip problem or othe orthopedic problem. If you have healed properly, you might be able to pull it off, but if you are still having issues, this is likely to make you worse physically. I am not trying to be negative, but, I had sciatica for a while when my daughter was small and driving really irritated it. I did some physical therapy and it is gone now, but, I still get pain if I drive for a long time.
hi,as much as i hate not gettin to play devils advocate this time,im gona hafta agree with the heavy hitters this time. if you have been on pain medications for an extended period of time, you have to be thinking is it such a good idea to pursue a career in operating heavy machinery?at the first sign of doubt your perspective employer is going straight to the state licensing burrow to have your license pulled.not to mention an insurance company labeling you a high risk. please don't get the wrong idea,you may be able to handle your meds and drive perfectly fine. god forbid you would get in an accident and fail a urine or a blood test. who knows the repercussions you could face... don't mean to rain on your parade.
