I have been taking oxycodone for at least 5 years now. My doctor is now doing drug tests to make sure people are taking their meds and not selling them. I tested for the first time on Monday at around 10:30 AM and I had taken a pill at around 5:30 AM (5 MG) and I THINK I took another one after that but before 10:00 AM but I'm not really sure. My test came back CLEAN!!! How could that happen, I do not sell or give away ANY of my pills, this is one of the few things I do right! Now my doctor says he believes me but I can see it in his eyes that he doesn't and it just kills me! He told me not to worry about it because I have another month before I see him again but how can I not worry? I have been taking this stuff for a long time and to say that I really need them is an understatement. I don't take too many at a time and I never run out from month to month. I get 140 tablets a month, enough for up to 5 a day, IF I NEED THEM, I hardly ever do but I know they are there if I do. I am VERY CAREFUL with them. All this just seems very surreal and I feel like I'm in a dream. When I went to the doctors office this morning, the nurse that is always friendly to me, we are even facebook friends, wouldn't even look me in the eye, it's like they all think I'm a criminal. Can someone please help me?
If I take oxycodone regularly why would a drug test be clean?

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to answer. I would also like to publicly apologize to arcanoidcyst16. I was having a really bad day and I took it out on someone who was just trying to help me, I was a real bitch and I hope all is forgiven (I added him as a friend <3)
I have been trying really hard not to think about it but it's not going too well and I really don't have anyone to talk to about it. But, I will be ok. Thanks again for all the help & if anyone thinks of something else, please let me know.
I would listen to your doctor and not worry about it. When you have your next appt bring your medication with you so they can do a pill count. It will show you are being honest about the amount of pills you take. The worst thing that could happen is they prescribe you less because you don't need the full amount each month. It's certainly better than having too much in your system and running out each month. You would also lose your doctor if this were the case. Try to relax and just go by what your doctor tells you. You're also very fortunate to not have a tolerance built up after 5 years of being on oxycodone. That is almost unheard of.
How wild is that huh? Hey just for old time everybody makes mistakes sake,maybe the lab where they sent the screen got it mixed up maybe they used a test that doesent test for opiates?They have different screens they can use.And maybe they put yours in one that doesent question opiate level by mistake.It wouldnt show up, if they used a test that didnt ask for opiate level. Just as if they used and opiate test for weed.weed wouldnt show up the opiate would! If you understand what Im saying? Thats a easy mistake to make check the wrongbox anyone could that? All drug screens are not the same.Just a thought? Go get one yourself that goes back 90 days,be sure it test for opiates take it, and make them (LAB) pay for it.And then disc your so called friend for being so transparent. Lot aways to get a drug screen done for free.Go apply for a job? or give blood,etc...
just incase money is a problem.Also this is fact IF you drink alot of water before that test and you used the bathroom alot,you could have passed it,thats a sure way and the only way I know of to pass a drug is if you drink ALOT of water,Ive done that endless times.
You sound just like me! I had the exact same experience with my doctor. I was always running out because I did not have enough of the medications and my urine tests were always coming back clean. Oxycodone does not stay in the system for very long but I also understand you when you say you took your medications before you went to the dr's office. I know this is going to sound so very silly to you as it did to me when one of my dr's told me this... I often have "false positives and false negatives" on my tests... blood and urine and this has caused me no end of problems. Recently I had to have surgery and I had blood work done and it came up a false positive on one of the tests... this just could not be. So I found out and thankfully my DR was there at the hospital to verify this to the staff nurses... he had previously taken blood tests on me and found I have... don't laugh...
"mouse anti-bodies" in my blood!! He is a joker and I honestly thought he was kidding me... but NO, he was not. It seems that if all the people in this country were tested for this more than half would have it. It comes from "exposure" to mice and a lot of diagnostic tests are done with "mouse enzymes" and if you have the mouse anti bodies in your blood that can cause the false readings in diagnostic tests. Also... if you have any kind of auto immune problem in your body... even if it is just in the thyroid it can also cause false test readings. You need to go to your family doctor and ask him to do the testing on you so you will know for sure. I now have to submit to blood testing for my drug screening if I show a clear urine test!!!
