I was given methadone almost 2 weeks ago and it was basically a one time thing and I just took a drug test at my pain management will it show up?

Maybe: More likely to pick up the metabolite eddp. Why would you be concerned? If you are under the care of a pain management physician I would expect that they rxd the methadone. If it was not rxd for you then you using or trying the Methadone would be a warning sign for possible abuse and you should seek help. ...Read more

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?

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

I'm on the methadone program but I took 2 5mg percocets on tue morning and had a drug test on thur afternoon, will I test positive for the percocets? B

Depends on the test: Most blood tests are only positive for 24 hours, but urine tests can be positive for 3-4 days. Hair tests can test for drug use within the last 90 days or even longer depending on the length of your hair. I would imagine that those running the Methadone program would use both urine and blood tests to evaluate. ...Read more
