Hi,
Oxycodone is not tested in the standard 5 panel drug test which includes PCP, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines/amphetamines and opiates (morphine, heroin and codeine). However employers or health care providers can specifically request to include oxycodone in the drug test if needed. So check with your doctor what specifically he is testing you for.
Regards.

If your doctor is testing specifically for Oxycodone and you are taking it as prescribed, there is no reason why the drug would not show up on the tests, except for occasional false negative test which is rare. It is possible that you doctor is testing you to make sure you are not abusing any other drug.
