Does Vicodin metabolize into morphine?
Vicodin (active ingredient hydrocodone) metabolizes into hydromorphone (active ingredient in dilaudid), not morphine.
Yes! Vicodin is from the "hydrocodone" family. Percocet is from the "oxycodone" family and morphine from a different. When they test, they generally test you for the "family name" of the drug you are perscribed. They generally don't break the test down to what percisely your taking (vicoden, percocet, ect...)as they will for( "hydrocodone, oxycodone, ect...but morphine is its own family.
Vicodin (hydrocodone) and morphine are similar chemicals used for nearly the same purpose--relief of pain. Hydrocodone is slightly less efficacious (strong) than morphine is, and is typically combined with acetaminophen. This mixture makes it more easier for a doctor to prescribe than morphine due to its scheduling by the DEA (C-III -vs- C-II). There are efforts to make ANY medication with hydrocodone in it C-II.
This question doesn't even make sense. Vicodin is its own drug. It has 5 mg of hydrocodone and 500 mg of acetaminophen. Morphine is its own drug as well. It is just morphine sulfate. You need to clear up your question. The two drugs are not in a combined drug together so there is no way to find some "ratio" between the two. If you're asking what the equivalency is between the two, such as…
I am allergic to morphine as well. I can take Vicodin, Lortab, Norco etc, but at higher doses (10mg or above) I do sometimes get very slight hives on my face, but not like with morphine. Anything 10mg and below and I've had no problem. That is just my experience. That being said, I cannot take oxycodone, Percocet or any of it's derivatives as it causes MAJOR hives, itching, burning sensation, and respiratory distress. Hope…
yes they both show up as morphine...they are both opiates... Wrong! Oxycontin is oxycodone hydro chloride, and shows up as just that. They have to use a certain drug test for that, and most places do. Vicodin id hydrocodone, and shows up as hydrocodone. Morphine, dilaudid, heroin, show up as opiates.
It depends on the type of test that is being conducted--and as such, how recently such medication was consumed by what route. The answer is, possibly but possibly not. Vicodin (containing hydrocodone) does metabolize into hydromorphone--Dilaudid. The question is somewhat confusing. If you're prescribed Vicodin and taking Dilaudid recreationally and are asking whether a drug test will trace the Dilaudid, then you are allegedly violating the Terms of Service.
Not so much a form heroin but a form of opium. Opium is the base to all your big pain killers including heroin. Oxycodone(oxycotin and percocet), morphine, hydromorphone(diluadid), hydrocodone(vicodin), and heroin all start out as opium. Heroin actualy becomes morphine once it is broken down in your body. Hydrocodone(vicodin) has some synthetic parts to it just like oxycotin and diluadid do. While heroin is strictly from opium and has no synthetic parts.
That would completely depend on how thorough the screening is. For most drug test like those in the army and legal system you would simply test positive for an opiate based narcotic. Vicodin is synthetic whereas morphine is made from poppies so it is possible to distinguish between natural "opiates" and synthetic "opiods".
No, you cannot. since hydromorphone is morphine with an extra oxygen molecule that allows it to pass through the blood brain barrier faster (much like heroin is actually morphine also but with an extra acetyl molecule), you will still have the same allergic reaction. try Oxycodone (percocet) or Hydrocodone (Vicodin) instead.
Yes, and No. I have been taking offbrand vicodin for back pain. I also drug test every week for probation. I have never tested (preliminary) positive for any drug. Hydrocodone (vicodin) does not show up in a dip stick test for some reason. Morphine almost certainly would give a preliminary positive. They would then send the sample to the lab for further gc/ms testing. They would be able to then discern the difference between the…
Yes you can. It's much easier with Vicodin than say Morphine, however Vicodin is still an opiate and is therefore very strong and influencing. If one abuses the drug and/or takes it habitually, it will be harder to quit. I'd say it is comparable to marijuana perhaps, though with heavy use physical withdrawals can occur. Good luck.
Morphine is an Opiate. Opiates and Opioids metabolize differently depending on the drug and pathways. Many brand name drugs are detected as a metabolite in a drug test once analyzed. Demerol is detected and the metabolite/parent drug is meperidine. Opiates can break down into multiple metabolites, for instance heroin can break down into codeine, morphine, morphine glucuronide, and 6 monoacetyl morphine...drug testing is more complex than most people think it is.
