My pain management doctor recently gave me a urine drug test and i tested positive for opioids (morphine) to be exact. My prescription from him for the past 30 days was supposed to be 1 10mg percocet 4x a day. Unfortunately I take ALOT more than that. I was taking throughout that month a combination of oxycontin 60mg and oxycodone 30mg. Is this the reason he said I tested positive for the morphine and opioids? I thought that because I was supposed to be taking 4 10mg percs a day that I would have been fine taking his drug test. Is it because of the amount of oxycodone I had taken throughout the entire month?
Depending on the sensitivity of the urine test, you should have tested positive for the oxycodone from the percocet but not positive for morphine. Where are you getting the Oxycontin? Are you sure you are getting what you think you are? Oxycodone is the generic form of Oxycontin so they are the same. The Percocet is oxycodone and acetominophen which contains no morphine. All these meds, the oxycodone and the morphine, are opoids.
I would be careful taking the prescribed amount of Percocet with the additional Oxycontin. The additional oxycodone in the form of Oxycontin is a bit much oxycodone for one day.
