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.

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.

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

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!!
