Dr. Karl Spector answered:

Is there any test that docs can perform to tell the differences of what kinds of opiates you have in your system?

Yes

Yes, although it can take a while. Most clinics and doctor's offices use an on-site urine or saliva screen for certain drugs and medications. What is gained in having quick results is occasionally lost with accuracy. Thus, sometimes the urine is sent out to a lab-- it is there that they can tell the difference between the different opiates among many others. The lab very rarely makes errors.

Dr. Sarah E. Blake answered:

How long do opiates stay in the bloodstream?

Depends on the med

Blake009
Most short acting narcotics (Percocet, Vicodin etc) last about 3-4 hours. Most long acting narcotics (MS Contin, Opana ER, Oxycontin) last 8-12 hours and the Duragesic/Fentanyl patches last 72 hours. Any narcotic can persist in your bloodstream for one week to one month depending on how well your kidneys and liver filter out toxins.

How doe suboxone show up or read as on a urine drug screen? and how long does suboxone stay in your urine? Overcoming a brief opiate dependence and looking for work.

Drug test

Urine
You need not worry about your drug test. BEFORE taking the test, indicate that you take SUBOXONE. A prescribed medication. You can only fail the test if you DONT indicate that you are prescribed the medicine BEFORE doing the urine screen.
