    Swim is drug tested by courts...they test for amphetamine, cannaboloid, cocaine, etg, opiates, oxycontin, synthetic cannabis, creatinine, gabapentin, suboxone, methadone

    Swim has not used in weeks, however swim did heroin recently and took a drug test 60 hours later. Tested positive for morphine not sure the level of positive. Swim SPLIT one 40 bag 0.3-0.4g

    The question is is what could be a reason swim could have failed? Could vicodin alone or including an antibiotic be a reason tested positive or is it out of the question because of its chemical breakdown/drug test panel? Swim knows poppy seeds can cause false negative for a level 200-300ml morphine.

    NEED INPUT ASAP

    Was the test a point of care device such as a dipstick or instant cup? Or were the results confirmed by a mass spectrometry based assay (GC/MS or LC/MS)? Answering this will provide many answers.

    Heroin (diacetylmorphine) metabolizes in 6-Acetylmorphine (or 6-monoacetylmorphine) which further metabolizes into Morphine. 60 Hours could be a long enough time for the Morphine to be at detectable levels in the urine. Had the test been 6 hours instead of 60 hours they would have detected the Heroin metabolites.

    I've posted a little bit on how Heroin metabolizes into Morphine, along with half-lifes here, (sources are included).

    I'm sorry, I totally forgot to answer your questions. Vicodin in Hydrocodone, this would not show up as Morphine. The antibiotics would add no interference to the drug test.
