This is Dr. David

if you have a prescription for oxycodone, then it is not a worry.

methanphetamines will be in the system for 3-5 days after to turn urine screen positive

oxycodone needs at least 3-5 to get out of your system.

methadone can take 2-4 days to get out of your system.

NOT A URINE TEST! A BLOOD TEST. I have to give blood for a complete panel of tests given when you get a physical. cholesterol, liver, etc. I am sure drugs will be looked for also. Drugs were not mentioned but I'm sure they would check for them
Expert:  Dr. David replied 5 years ago.
if they do blood drug tox screen you will have to add on an additional 1-2 days to make sure the drugs are out of your system.

methadone can take even longer than that if you are taking methadone.

I wasn't sure if meth meant methadone or methamphetamines.

Unfortunately, the other expert's answer is incorrect.

The detection period for drugs in urine is LONGER than for blood.

Many people make the incorrect assumption that blood detection periods are longer. For example; in blood, methamphetamine is detected for approximately 48 hours, while in urine the detection period averages 87 hours (with a significant variable range)
