I take 5mg oxycodone 4 times a day but I drug test negative why?

I take 5mg oxycodone 4 times a day but I drug test negative why?

Drug tests: It is probably a combination of the tester using a cheap, lower sensitivity testing kit, testing during a low level of the drug in your system and you being a fast metabolizer. Oxycodone has a half life of about 3-4hrs. If you test several hours after your last dose the levels in you urine may be too low for the test to pick up. Also, only a small amount of the drug appears in the urine. ...Read more
