is not sure that oxycodone
is converted into morphine
in the body. he'd like to see swiy's source on that. to his knowledge its codeine
, morphine, and heroin
that would show up on most six panel drug
tests. he has actually passed one with oxycodone in his system as well. in fact, according to rxlist.com
"A high portion of oxycodone is N-dealkylated to noroxycodone during first-pass metabolism. Oxymorphone
, is formed by the O-demethylation of oxycodone. The metabolism of oxycodone to oxymorphone is catalyzed by CYP2D6. Free and conjugated noroxycodone, free and conjugated oxycodone, and oxymorphone are excreted in human urine following a single oral dose of oxycodone. Approximately 8% to 14% of the dose is excreted as free oxycodone over 24 hours after administration. Following a single, oral dose of oxycodone, the mean ±
SD elimination half-life
is 3.51 ±
so it should not test false positive for morphine.
swiy is right that withdrawals last longer than the length of time that opiates
would stay in the system, but he was more advising that to be on the safe side, not to take the drug test until withdrawals from heavy use were over, just to make sure there were not any opioids
remaining in the system. he should have been more clear on that point.
