    Very doubtful (like 100%!) that this would work - maybe if one crushed up a tablet & coated one's mouth with the powder, but alarm bells would start ringing when the lab analysed this sample from a creature made entirely of aspirin...

    As ever, the only way to defeat a drug test is to stay clean or have a prescription for the drug one is worried about. SWiY might also want to look into false positives...

    :confused: HELP PLEASE! ALOT AT STAKE!:confused:

    Does anyone know if hair follicle tests can differentiate between methadone and other types of opiates? For instance, if SWIM were on the methadone program and used another opiate for which I was not prescribed, could that be proved? I have heard that opiates metabolize into the same chemical by the time they reach one's hair...IS THIS TRUE?

    No way will a methadone clinic not bee testing for stuff. That's what and how they get licensed. TAKE in some clean piss from someone on the juce.

    look, thanks for the reply, but I said that SWIM's concern was regarding a hair-follicle test given by a different agency for a different reason!!! SWIM already has the urine tests beat...it's the hair that's tricky!!!

    I am almost positive that the methadone and any other opiod/opiate will be distinguished from one another. They will know what you were using

    SWIM loves methadone, and has access to an unlimited supply of drug tests. I was wondering the same thing, will methadone trigger a positive result on the standard immunoassay test for opiates?
    SWIM drug tests EACH and EVERYTIME methadone is ingested. I have never ever seen a positive result on the six panel for the OPI strip.
    HOWEVER, further investigation revealed that the OPI test (immunoassay) tested for 1) codeine 2) oxycodone 3) morphine 4) hydrocodone.
    Based on this information, I was lead to believe that if one wanted to test for the presence of methadone, than they would need a separate test; one that specifically tests for methadone as methadone does not metabolize in the same fashion that other opiates do.
    I use drug tests every time methadone is involved, different ones at that. Sometimes I use the OPI test, sometimes the MORP test, and sometimes the plain old NIDA-6 test.
    I have NEVER tested + for OPI *ON THE IMMUNOASSAY *, I have never sent the urine sample for GCMS to ID what the urine would test positive for.

    If anybody has information on methadone and drug tests, please feed SWIM's brain!

    Thanks!

    My first post,,,,hope it's some help. I have been on a methadone programme in the Uk for the past four years and in that time has been having real trouble kicking his heavy smoking H habit. Be assured that the methadone clinics can differentiate between methadone and other types of opiates in your system and can be very specific as to what you have taken.

    One more point......I has failed a test for opiates (other than methadone of course) up to six days after last using. I use approx 0.4 gram a day on the foil.
