... all going to come up as an opiate?
Yes, all are opiate, but Tylenol 3 is codeine, vicodin is hydrocodone and OxyContin is oxycodone, 3 separate types of opiates. If you are being drug tested, you will come up positive for all 3 different opiates. If you are being tested for pain meds by a pain management dr, you are in danger of losing your pain meds and being kicked out of the practice. Please be careful.
Because of rampant Rx drug abuse, many places do separate test on the different opioids-patti is correct. If they do a test for just the broad category "opioids" then you may be ok BUT if they do a more specific test, you are in danger of getting into trouble for the oxycodone and many places are doing the more specific tests. they are becoming more widely available and less expensive. Good Luck. In the future, your best practice is to stick to what you have prescribed to you so that you dont get into trouble. I mean you KNOW that you are being tested. It would seem prudent to me that you stick to your prescribed meds. That way you dont have to worry. Many Drs are testing now and if your prescribing Dr tests you and you come up dirty for OxyContin and it isnt prescribed, you are in danger of losing your prescribed meds. I would think for probation, they are going to test for everything!! Just as they do in pain management.
I am actually looking for a response to someone who may know. I have been on Long Acting Morphine and oxy's for a little over a year for pain from a work injury. I also suffer from panic attacks and insomnia. I take Xanax and Ambien. My question is to get off the pain medication I do not want to switch from one addiction to another. I saw an add about sub. for 6 week to help you get off the pain meds without going through nasty withdraw. Any advice appreciated.
