My treating Doctor said that Hydrocodone can show a FALSE Positive for Oxycodone
I don't know but would like to because of my boyfriend
I am curious if they will show up different cause I been told several answers is why I am asking
I believe it does. Hope that helps EVERYONE.
Need to know if they are the same kind of medication and know the safety issues.
No they will show up as 2 different drugs. This happened to me 2 months age.I ran short on my 7.5/325 percocets& took a 7.5 loratab I had from hand surgery and did the pee test at pain clinic and doc ask me why I had codeine in my system. So no they are different/ not the same. But close
Yes they will. All pain medications show up as the same thing in drug tests. They show up as Opiates, which is actually the drug that is in the pain meds.
No matter if you take Morphine, Dimerol, Oxycodone, Oxymorphone, hydrocodone, Dilaudid, whatever... they all show up as opiates in a drug test.
No. They have separate metabolites and break down into synthetic codeine. Neither should appear on a standard drug screen Which generally looks for morphine or codeine in its' pure state. I have also read that OxyContin doesn't break down into syn. codeine. In any case , they would have to do a more complex screen to determine what is in your system-and after 48 hours, you're pretty much in the clear. Good luck and let us know how it works out for you.
