I would presume that the tests would be accurate at least for that period of time. However, perhaps different tests/labs have different periods of time for which they ensure accuracy. Part of it would depend on how high the concentration of methadone is. ...Read more

If you have been taking it chronically then it may still there is a good chance it will still be there next wednesday. The real question is why you have taken methadone.
