Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take subutex without getting early withdrawal, its for chronic pain not addiction.

Yes, long enough.: Half life of oxycodone, how long it takes to clear half of oxycodone, is about 3.5 hours. It takes about 5 X 3.5 hours to clear most of dose. 12-15 hours clears about 80% of dose. Subutex should not cause withdrawal from oxycodone at 12-15 hours (since it partially blocks the opioid receptors), and it can actually block withdrawal if you are stopping oxycodone after chronic usage. ...Read more

Will heroin cause someone to test positive for oxycodone on rapid urine screen?

Will heroin cause someone to test positive for oxycodone on rapid urine screen?

No. Heroin will: show up as an opiate but not necessarily oxycodone. However, many point-of-care drug screening tests include specific screening for oxycodone. Also, if the heroin was cut or contaminated with oxycodone, both can show up on a urine drug screen. If you or a loved one has a heroin habit, there are some fine outpatient treatment centers in the Cinci area. Dr. Anne ...Read more

Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take Suboxone without getting early withdrawal?

Is 12-15 hours long enough time after taking oxycodone to take Suboxone without getting early withdrawal?

Depends: If you're taking Suboxone to treat opiod drug addiction, you should wait until you experience some signs of withdrawal, then begin it. If you're taking it for chronic pain, 12-15 hours is certainly not long enough for sustained release oxycodone, and prob not long enough for immediate release oxycodone. For that I recommend about 20 hours. ...Read more

How long after a dose, is naloxone detectable in a urine screen?

Not predictable: Whether naloxone is detected on a drug screen depends on each individual's body, on how much was taken, on when it was taken, on the quality of the test, on the type of chemicals the test looks for, on the diluteness of the urine, on pure luck, etc...

Will you go through withdrawals if you took opiates for 3 months approximately 80 pills in that time frame? How hard is it to stop taking opiates?

Probably not: That is not that large a dose of opiates. It also depends on which opiates. If it was just percocet, probably not a problem. But, if it was 60 mg of oxycontin, that could be an issue. The type of narcotic and dose is very important. I would talk to your doctor about exactly which one you were taking and its properties. ...Read more

How long are fentanyl metabolites detectable on a urine sample tested specifically for fentanyl?

How long are fentanyl metabolites detectable on a urine sample tested specifically for fentanyl?

Quite a bit of time: the first thing is that fentanyl is a long acting drug mainly because of the time it takes to get out of the patch and into the person. The time starts hours after the patch is removed. Due to some staying in the skin, it brings the total time to about a week after the patch is rmoved. ...Read more

I have tested pos for opiates 3 times in a methadone program. I only taken the methadone they gave me, how is this possible? I really haven't used

It's an opiate!: Methadone (just like morphine, heroin, codeine, oxycodone, opium & hydromorphone) is an opiate. If you're CERTAIN your aren't ingesting any other opiate, then only methadone should show up on your drug tests. However, office based urine drug screens can give false positive results for other drugs. If there's any question, they should be followed up by a confirmation test. ...Read more

Lifetime: If the addiction was acquired during a painful illness, recovery can be very fast aided by humane protocols such as used by the military in burn units.

Does opiate abuse build a tolerance to or negate a methamphetimine high after discontinuing opiate use for an extended period of time?

Does opiate abuse build a tolerance to or negate a methamphetimine high after discontinuing opiate use for an extended period of time?

No: the two work through different receptor systems and I am unaware of any tolerance. However, if you are diagnosed with ADHD and are abusing methamphetamine for the high, you are doing yourself no favors. You don't list drug abuse or chemical dependency under your conditions - perhaps you need to think about that, and get some overdue help. Good luck. ...Read more
