Hi,

Thanks for this question. Well it depends on the type of drug test which you had done, if it was a simple drug screen which checks for the various drug groups in your urine like opiates, bezodiazepines, cocaine etc then it will show up only as an opioid. They wont be able to tell whether you used nucynta or vicodin or tramadol. However if they run a GC/MS test on the urine sample then they will be able to know that you used nucynta instead of vicodin etc. So a simple screening test would show that you have opioids in your system (if you have nucynta) and not be able to tell which opioid you used however the GC/MS test is more specific and can differentiate between the various opioids easily.
