Will methadone and Oxycontin show up different in drug test?
Yes, Oxycontin will show up as an opiate on a drug test and Methadone will only show up as methadone because it requires its own specific test used to detect it.
Does Oxycontin show up separately than methadone in a drug test i have methadone script but need to take old script of Oxycontin for pain and don't want to test pos for it?
OxyContin is a different formulation of the sub compound oxycodone. Oxycodone will show up on a UA as an opiate along with any other opiates such as Percocet, Vicoden, Lortab, Hydrocodone, etc... Oxycontin however, it being a semi-synthetic compound of the mixture will not show up on a standard UA dip stick test. In order to test for Oxycontin specifically, the tester would have to use what the industry calls an "oxy- stick". Chances are…
Methadone, does not show up on normal drug tests, that test for opiates. I was drug tested by the state for legal reasons, and methadone did not show up. Most employers drug tests would not detect methadone. Methadone is a synthetic opiate, and unless a specific test is done for blood serum levels of methadone, it will not show up. I have also given urine samples for jobs, and methadone does not show up, EVER!!!
