    No, 7 days should be plenty of time.

    Look around before making new threads. Detection times and lots of other information is in the Drug Testing Guide stickied at the top of this subforum.

    thanx for your info,just another question thats been bugging my friend,in the rehab they test not specifically for codeine,as he asked,i mean the test is for opiods and last time he did it it gave positive for heroine(so they say)and morphine,he understand this for codeine is metabolised into it.his question is,will the waiting time be the same for such test,he saw on the urine chart that the time is the same even though they in the rehab say it s 7 days for heroine and other opiods?
    another strange thing was his positive for methadone when he only did codeine,and believe it or not even buprenorphine was positive!yes he took bupe in the past but a loooong time ago,he already test it in the mean time and was negative,but now....anyone understands this?

    p.s.they sent a urine sample to the lab to a more specific test,still waiting for results...

    The more specific test will clear up any false positives. Sometimes those immunoassay drug screens are prone to false positives. Don't sweat it.

    If it was a single use of codeine, no worries at all. Even with chronic, heavy use codeine doesn't stick around in the body. Codeine just isn't detectable by 5 days after use.

    hi there!
    again my friendhave another question that maybe someone can help himwith.he did some research before posting and my doubt is if tramadol will test positive on a normal urine test.
    many say it doesnt ,he believes this cause first urine test he did(he was totally clean by then,all negative)they asked him if i had taken any tramadol,cause they were thinking on putting him on an antagonist program,so this fact makes him believe it doesnt test on the 5 test they make on the rehab(opiates,cannabinoids,cocaine,anphetamines and,he thinks,subutex).
    he only ask this cause he s using tramadol to help him from a codeine abuse,wd are a bitch ,cant stand them and tramadol does help.
    thanx everyone!

    ruca,

    Thus far all of your questions have answers here: Drug Testing - A Comprehensive Guide
    Please take the time to read through the thread. Any further questions can be posted there. If the drug isn't listed as an analyte in the tables, then it does not have an immunoassay, drug screen test. Tramadol is one such drug.
