If I took 10 mg methadone one time on may 21 and had a 10 panel drug test taken may 29 will it come positive and when will it be out my system?

Depends on the: panel. There are many "10-drug" panels and they are not standardized. Some look for Methadone and some do not. A single dose of 10 mg is not likely to be present 7 days later. I am MORE concerned with your taking a drug not prescribed for you, particularly methadone. The safe starting dose in an opioid-naive patient is 2.5-5 mg. If this were not prescribed for you, don't do it again! Not safe!! ...Read more

I took 15mg methadone a week ago, will it be out of my system for a drug test only a week of my last dose? Please help. If not, how can I get it out?

Depends: If this was a one time use, it should be clear in a week, but if it was long-term it's less certain. Half-life range top is 48hrs, so you're probably good - but don't use it w/o Rx and that should satisfy a drug tester. It's good you care and use that motivation to stay clean! Best wishes. ...Read more

It depends: Methadone because it stays in the body's fat can remain detectable in the body for extended periods. Hair testing might show its presence for months. Most screening, however, is through urine and with standard cut-offs I would expect after a week it wouldn't come up as positive unless previous use was high or there was some significant problem effecting excretion. ...Read more
