Greetings.

 

Dilaudid and Oxycontin both are eliminated from body in 21-24 hours and would not show in urine after that.

 

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

the last time i used dilaudid was tuesday and the last time i used oxycontin20mg was 6am thursday and they both showed on my urine test friday. y would that b? my next urine test is monday and that one is for work and i am very worried. the test i have to take is either 35190n sap 10-50/2000 w/nit or 22866n medpro B panel i'm not sure which, do u know what they test for
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 years ago.

Hello,

 

The only reason for them showing even after 24 hours is slow elimination due to following;

 

1) Taking other over the counter medicines like Tylenol or Ibuprofen which slows the elimination.

2) Alcohol; can decrease the rate of excretion.

3) Liver or kidney diseases may slow the rate of excretion of these medicines.

 

Oxycontin elimination sometimes is dose dependent and people who are taking it for very long time in high doses may show it even after 24 hours. The tests you had mentioned are Substance abuse panel tests done for 10 drugs.

 

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 years ago.

Hello,

 

Yes, your drugs should be out of system by Monday.

 

You would be tested for; AMPHETAMINES, BARBITURATES, BENZODIAZEPINES, COCAINE, MARIJUANA, METHADONE, OPIATES, PHENCYCLIDINE, PROPOXYPHENE.

 

It is privilege assisting you.

should i stop taking tylenol and motrin? does the other medicine i'm on have any of those drugs in them that r on the drug test. sorry to be a bother. just this is all new to me and i'm worried. is there anything i can do to get this stuff out of my system faster? thank u again.
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 3 years ago.

You are welcome.

 

Stopping all the medicines and drinking lot of fluids would help. Though Oxycontin and Dilaudid would be definitely eliminated by now. None of the other medicines you are taking (except oxycontin, Dilaudid) are in the panel.

You are most welcome.

 

Good night.

 

Good luck.

Expert:  Family Physician replied 3 years ago.
I would have to disagree with the other expert on the detection period for these drugs. Drug tests are aimed at the metabolites of the drug, not the drug itself. For this reason, the detection period for opiates is typically in the 3 day range (rather than the 24 hours reported by the other expert)

This review article from the Mayo Clinic Proceedings lists a detection period for oxycodone of 2-4 days.
