HelloThis simply means that the hair analysis was positive for oxycodone.The level does not say how much you used.It is a level above the threshold for toxicity, meaning it is a positive test.Oxycodone is a synthetic opiate and not part of normal drug panels.This means it was a custom test and they were testing specifically for this drug among others. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions.
