I jus had a few ?'s about a drug test coming up

Doctor's Assistant: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.

I took 7.5mg of oxycodone for knee pain and I was wondering about how long it will be in my system.

Doctor's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Doctor should know?

I had urinalysis yesterday and it had been around 40 hours since I had taken any. I was outside all day and drank a little over a gallon of water in 4 hours

Hi,

Oxycodone is detectable in a urine test for 3-4 days.

A blood test will detect Oxycodone for up to 24 hours.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
Your satisfaction is our goal.

my test limit for opiates is 2000 ng/ml. will I pass?
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 2 years ago

Most likely you will pass the test without any worry, as oxycodone level will be low ( much less than 2000ng/ml) even if it is detected.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

Your satisfaction is our goal.

the level would have been low enough to pass 40 hours after taken?
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 2 years ago

Yes,as your medicine dose is very low.

You'll pass the test.

What does ng/ml exactly mean?
Health Professional: Onlinedoc, General Physician replied 2 years ago

Some medical tests report results in nanograms (ng) per millilitre (mL).

Hi,

While I agree with the other expert, I just want to add an additional point to help ease your mind. You stated that the urine test is for opiates, with a cut off of 2,000 ng/ml. If this is just a regular opiate test, then oxycodone won't be detected. Oxycodone is a synthetic opiate and most tests that are called opiate tests are designed to detect natural opiates (morphine, heroin, codeine), but not synthetic opiates. Synthetic opiates require a specific test for them to be detected. So, if that is the case, then you shouldn't have a problem. Further, you stated that you were prescribed oxycodone by a doctor, so if this drug test is for a job then you should be fine if you tell the Medical Review Officer that you have a valid prescription.

Take care,

Andy

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
