Will a drug test be able to tell the difference between Oxymorphone (Opana) and Dilaudid?

depends, are regularly checked for one of those?? If you are then "yes" they probably can as they have to use different tests for some synthetic opiates... Dave

"Smoke Dookie" the name alone is suspect. At least to me. The drug testing is catching up to the 21st century. If these meds were prescribed to you, then even if they show up, what's the problem? Don't mean to sound so cynical but regardless of what the screen is for (pre-employment, random, child custody, etc) when you are honest and upfront about being prescribed certain meds, then don't worry. On the other hand, if you weren't prescribed them and you show a positive, well, you know the rest. I wish you good luck and hope things turn out well for you.

Like everyone else has already commented, it depends if they are testing for a specific drug. Typically, a standard drug test would just show that you would be positive for opiates. Much more expensive test can be done to determine which opiate however. So it really depends on who's submitting it and why. Also, (I agree) honesty is always the best policy. Take care.

Opana ER and IR are OXYmorphone. Dilaudid is HYDROmorphone. They'd have to be really specific and costs for line item narcs is high. Usually just opiates BUT depends on WHO's testing. If you are getting them legally from your Doc, they usually do a line by line. Especially since most insurance carriers will pay for the more specific test. Employers don't want the larger tab. I do know my Pain Doc did a line by line of all narcs since I watched when the nurse came up and said she failed. She just said "I had an old bottle of it (Vicodin) so I took (1) or "some" - don't remember. LOVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HER... I take as prescribed - but there's always water, and water and how long ago did you take the Opana beore the test - and was it ER or just Opana. Opana has a long half life - 7 to 9 hrs. GOOD LUCK!
