Estrogens such as in hrt are sometimes used in stimulation protocols with gonadotropins (such as gonal f, (follitropin alfa) ) an oral progestin would be an unlikely element of most protocols. ...Read more

Can lab urine drug test differentiate the use of Tylenol (acetaminophen) #3 w/ codeine & heroin 3 days after last use? My drug class said I used heroin when I took T3
Depends on test type: Confirmatory test with gas or liquid chromatography will give a definitive result. Heroin is metabolized to 6-AM and eventually to morphine. Codeine is metabolized directly to morphine. If your test was done with a test strip, I would challenge it's results. If it was GC or HPLC then you're guilty. ...Read more

See Previous Answer: You basically have three options: resume opiates and taper gradually to minimize withdrawal. Use subutex (buprenorphine) as a replacement opiate which has less withdrawal issues.

The problem with the last option is that it can drastidcally lower your BP which might make your dialysis management difficult. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can a lab urine drug test differentiate the use of Tylenol (acetaminophen) #3 w/ codeine & heroin 3 days later? My drug class said I used heroin when I took tylenol (acetaminophen) 3
Retest: One of the metabolites of codeine is morphine - but not heroin. Be aware though, if it was a low yield test (ie, like the kind you buy at the grocery store) - these usually give you a positive result for any opiate. Anything more specialized (ie, laboratory study ordered by a doctor) - would use mass spectrometry and differentiate every substance independently. Hope that helps! ...Read more
