Methadone can be detected for UP TO 7 days in urine. The fact that you had a relatively low dose, and a single use, would potentially reduce this detection period slightly.

Depending on the concentration of the urine, you may pass the test. Unfortunately, the best I can tell you is MAYBE.

how long should it take to get out of my system
Expert:  Family Physician replied 5 years ago.
Generally a urine test done more than 7 days after last use would be expected to be negative.
