there is no known test in use @ THIS TIME FOR GABAPENTIN. -7 THE OTHER ANSWERER WAS WRONG--OXYCODONE SHOWS UP AS IT SELF OR ONCE IT HAS MATABOLISIED IN THE BODY AS: HYDROMORPHONE
Gabapentin is not a controlled drug so they probably wont test for it on most drug screens. OxyContin will show up as oxycodone. Oxycodone is semisynthetic and has to be tested for specifically. Some standard drug screens for employment do not specifically test for oxycodone. They test for opiates like morphine and codeine. So it depends on who is testing you and what kind of test they use, whether they run one specific to oxycodone. The metabolite is thebaine they test for , I believe. I do know that all drug screens do not test specifically for it. If it is a legal type of screen, for a transportation job (driving a company vehicle or DOT) or for a pain clinic, you can bet they will test for oxycodone in those cases.
it definitely depends on the type of testing they are doing. There are tests that can break each inidividual type of benzo and opiate. oxycontin shows as oxycodone just like percocet shows as oxycodone. I am not sure about the gabapentin though.
