Both drugs are quite similar and are both derived from The Bain. However, oxymorphone is more closely related to morphine (although it's 6-8x stronger and more euphoric), and oxycodone is closer to codeine (but much stronger).

Can you pass a drug test for oxymorphone with oxycodone?

you know i bet you could. oxycodone is metabolized to oxymorphone so at least some would show.Edited:You cannot pass.Oxymorhone is a metabolite of Oxycodone. But the reverse is not true. Meaning, if you were trying to pass a test for Oxycodone and you were taking Opana (Oxymorphone), you COULD pass because Oxycodone breaks DOWN into Oxymorphone. But Oxymorphone does not metabolize into Oxycodone. Assuming the physician, employer or whoever is giving your test decides to use a test that will break down exactly what kind of pain medication was used, they're going to see that there is Oxycodone AND Oxymorphone in your system.\What you are saying makes little since. Both drugs in the end are oxymorhone so weather you are taking oxycodone or opana they will both show up the same. If a GC test was performed($850.00) a really good tech may be able to tell the difference but in most cases it would be inconclusive. I am a MD .
