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.

I'm not selling or abusing. Just need to know how many days I need to take the meds prior to the test for it to metabolize. I take them as needed and he said that can throw the test but seems odd that it would. Can you tell me how many days I need to take both meds so it will metabilize for my urine test.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

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.

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.
