You have been taking percocet correct?
Are you enrolled in a pain management program
were they testing for opiates or for the oxycodone (the opiate part of the percocet)
do I get a answer for my question?
I asked you a question
this makes all of the difference
yes for percocettes all the time never had a negavtive false reading
who is testing you for the percocets? because you said you were entering the pain management program tomorrow
all I can see on my screen is tomorrow
who is testing you for your percocets?
my primary care doctor
is he ordering the OXY test or the OPIATE test?
well, the only way for this to be a false negative is if the wrong test was ordered- which is actually rather common
The chemical structure and metabolite of OXY requires a separate test with a significantly higher sensitivity detection level than that of the usual opiate drug test. Often the wrong test is checked off
all I know is she said there was nothing in my system I take 5 pills a day how could it not show up?
is there false readings?
Because they did the wrong test on you or there was a lab error
Federal requirements (SAMHSA) establish 2000 ng/ml sensitivity (cut off) level for the standard opiate test and at this threshhold OXY may not be detected. OXY tests require a cut off 100 ng/ml.
This may have been sent to the lab after submitting the wrong kit or requesting an opiate (as opposed to OXY test)
If the correct test was ordered, and you were taking the percocet, you would not have a false negative
No, there is not a false negative- there is lab error, sample error and kit errors
