i have recently started seeing a new pain management docotor, on my first visit, i informed him that my previous doctor had me on opana 40mg 2 times a day and oxycodone 30mg 4 times a day. He began my treatment with percocet 10mg 4 times a day. (which was ridiculous because that dosage of medication compared to my previous dosage would NOT do anything for my pain. So throughout that month, i ran out of the percocet and took whatever leftover 30mg oxycodones i had left. On my next visit, i was given a urine test and told that i had failed because it tested positive for an opioid (morphine) according to him. I told him that the percocet was not strong enough and that i had to use my remaining oxycodone. He said to me that i still should not have tested positive for morphine. he gave me a new script for the past month for 15mg oxycodone 4 times a day (which still is not enough to keep my pain in check) My question is what should show up on my next urine test and what exactly do they test for?
What do pain management physicians test for?

This question has also been asked and answered here: What does a pain management doctor do?
it may have been from the opana from the previous month if you tool one or two right before seeing the new doctor!!
they test for pretty much everything from street drugs, to opiates, narcotics. so if they find anything in your system they didn't prescribe you your in trouble. did you sign a pain contract with them, if so one of the conditions is you cannot go to another doctor and get medication and if you do you have to notify your pain mgmt doc right away. and as for what will show up in your system is whatever you have taken. pain doc's are really strict, they get sued a lot so they cover their ass every way they can and sometimes that can inhibit your treatment i know it sucks, it's those few bad apples that make it hard for us good apples.
i hope this was helpful if it was please check yes to was this question helpful.
