    I have a friend that used dilaudid twelve days ago and today got a drug patch unsuspectingly slapped on her arm. She has been told by the people in charge that people have tested positive for up to 45 days with the patch. Is this possible or is my friend being mislead? It seems a bit far-fetched but there is so little info out there about the sweat patch so she asked me to present her delimma to you fine folks on DF in hopes that someone will have any knowledge about this issue. On a related note, will hydromorphone show up as an opiate on the 5-panel patch test (morphine, codeine, heroin)? Thanks so much.

    I have personally read that it stays in your system for 3 to 8 days and up to around 10 days max.

    This all depends on dose and how often you take it though.

    Oh and hydromorphone can show up on some drug test but it is rare since it does not convert into morphine like some other opiates.

    she she took dilauded 12 days ago and now she has a drug test patch on her arm?

    how long does it stay on? i would suspect it could be more sensitive than say a cheek swab, mainly because the body slowly excretes everything through the skin, and if it's on there long enough it could get it. 12 days ago is usually a clean test, 45 days is for people who are regular users

    This is a newer way of testing that has been in the works for some time now to help avoid fake test results. As technology advances, electronic analysis of sweat is on the horizon and should be expected to be utilized in certain situations.

    My friend wasn't given a definite answer about how long it stays on but usually they keep it on a week or so.
