I had a urine test done it csme up it had morphine in my urine. But I don't take drugs?

Cross reactivity: Certain antibiotics can cause false positive opiate results on urine drug screens. Although most urine drug screens are now more sensitive, eating poppy seeds has been also known to cause this.

How long does it take for moriphine to get out of urine and does moriphine and fentynol show up as the same ln a urine test?

How long does it take for moriphine to get out of urine and does moriphine and fentynol show up as the same ln a urine test?

2-3 days: Morphine can be detected in urine up to 72 hours after use, although oxycodone and hydromorphone (other opiods) can be detected even longer. Fentanyl is not detected by the usual opiate drug tests and requires a special/separate test. However, I would not rely on the presumption that the testers are NOT looking for everything conceivable.

I am on a pain contract with my doctor. I am on methadone and vicodine. Will he be able to tell if I have taken morphine? When he tests my urine will he be able to tell that I have taken some morphine?

The: The physician-patient relationship is based on a few important principles, the most important of which is probably trust. Pain management doctors often have the unenviable position of treating their patients with very potent, and therefore very habit forming, medications. Opioid pain relievers like methadone, morphine, and hydrocodone (found in vicodin) are examples of such medications. Because they are so potent, they are frequently misused or abused, stolen, traded or sold. Problems arise because these medications cause sleepiness and stun the part of the brain that keeps us breathing when we are asleep. These medications also interact with many other prescription drugs, and with recreational drugs including alcohol. More accidental deaths are caused by these sorts of drugs than by recreational drugs. Doctors who prescribe these drugs are monitored very closely by agencies including the dea and their state medical boards. Although they are often not responsible for unwanted outcomes from the use of opioid medications, they are often held professionally and legally accountable for them. Pain management doctors routinely ask their patients to sign a contract agreeing to take only the medications prescribed by that doctor and only according to the doctor's instructions. This is done for at least three reasons: 1) to protect the patient's life; 2) to not ruin the system for other patients (such as could happen if the doctor's dea license was suspended); and, 3) to protect the doctor from lawsuits and professional sanctions. Doctors frequently test their patients to make sure that the contract is being followed. These days, the test can be very, very accurate and very, very broad.

6-AM is metabolized to morphine & codeine is metabolized to morphine how can they tell the difference in urine after sample is collected 4 days after

Cannot Tell: Without having all the results of the drug screening, I honestly don't think you can tell a difference. I think you are asking if you can tell from which drug the morphine is derived. The answer is you don't know unless there are traces of either 6-AM or Codeine present in the sample.
