Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
This is Dr. David
your pain doctor is worried you are not taking pain pills and possibly selling them on the market to make money.
some patients don't metabolize their pain medications well and the levels can be low in the urine.
I have had patients who take oxycodone regularly and it doesn't show up on urine tox screening tests to show opioids.
what is a better test is a quantatative urine opioid and oxycodone drug level.
Oxycodone is metabolized to oxymorphone in the urine and quantatative urine testing can detect if it is there in the urine.
I hope you are not avoiding taking your pain pills and selling them on the market.
let me know if you have questions.
if you are taking oxycodone and morphine 3 days before the test, they will show up in your urine.
each drug will show up for up to 3 days in your urine on routine urine tox screening tests for opiates.
let me know if you have other questions.
