I have chronic back pain and I take opana twice a day Lortab up to six times a day and Soma four times a day. I will get my first UA this week, but I have been on these meds for 3yrs. Lately I have been very sick & on antbiotic's. In the last ten or so days I have been very nausiated and only able to keep down the opana. Yes I have held down both Soma&Lortab, but not often. My doctor is now doing the UA's just to insure that you aren't selling meds & even says he wouldn't test for pot & even would give patients a second chance if they tested positive for an illicit drug. I have not taken any illegal drugs, but may have mistaken dosages of my meds thinking I threw them up before they could digest. If I take these meds correctly for a couple of days before my UA will I be alright. Also this is the doctor who is treating me for my illness so he is aware that I have legitimate vomiting. Will everything be okay? What kind of UA do you think he will give me? Will two days of correct dosage give me a clean UA?
Take all you pill bottles ( and all the pills) in with you and explain about the difficulties that you are having. They will do a pill count and if you have more pills than you should, or the right amount, you will be fine. If you have way less than you should.. well there might be a problem. It depends on if he/she gives you a quickie test versus a mail off to a lab test as to how specific the test is. He/she may do both, a quickie test to see if you have a positive for all the meds he/she prescribed and then mail some off to check the levels. Being that you are new to this, I am thinking he will listen to you and adjust your meds. Two days of taking them correctly should be fine. If you test negative for something you know you took, ask if you can take a different type of test to prove you are being honest and adhering to your program.
