So I'm trying a pain clinic for the first time as my previous doc screwed up (long story)...he's not a doc to see for pain anymore
the pain clinic does a fairly extensive test (if i had to guess, I'd say it was a 10 panel...I think there's only 5 and 10 so I'm thinking 10)...
They had me write down all my scripts before going in for the first visit and of course checked all of them with the pharmacy (they are covering themselves as much as possible as far as I can tell)
Due to extensive pain, I've had to turn towards oxycodone 30's a little more often than my script for 10/325 vicodin...they'll also find xanax and a few other drugs most likely (all prescribed except the oxycodone...and it's been way too long since i've been prescribed perc's to try putting that one by them (especially since i was stupid enough to leave that one off the list of prescriptions (didn't think there would be any sort of piss test involved)), but none that I'm worried about other than the oxy and benzo's...
they know i'm prescribed xanax at a fairly high dose and have been getting klonopin prescribed as well...i also have a script for 10/325 vicodin
what I can seem to find online is whether or not they'll be able to tell the oxy apart from the vicodin in a piss test as well as acceptable levels of amounts of opiates and benzo's and if they'll be able to tell that i've taken valium a handful of times in place of xanax (old script of valium so i can always try to explain that one)...I've been doing quite a bit of research, but can't seem to find the specifics as far as what they can actually pick apart when sending this to a lab. The place uses a cup that has strips on the outside of it so you already know if you are positive for things when they rip the cover off the front of it...my pain is awful and I'd rather continue to use the oxycodone 30's if possible (occasionally mixed with a couple of vicodin). Will they be able to tell the difference between the opiates and if so, how many days in advance would I need to stop taking oxycodone and just stick to the vicodin (which I'm running out of, hence my need to go to the pain clinic). Also, will they be able to separate the different type's of benzo's or just see that there is a positive test for benzo's?
I've done my research, as some of you know, I've been in a lot of pain for a long time and have really cut my benzo use down significantly over the past year+...sometimes I swap out using xanax for valium to continue weening off of xanax...it's been at least a good month since i've taken any klonopin.
I have about a week to prepare for this and any help would be appreciated. It's incredibly hard for me to work effectively without the oxycodone and just the vicodin, but if they can actually pick apart each specific drug in these tests, I'll do it for a short period of time.
Any help would be appreciated as I feel like I've researched this one like crazy and can't find specific/adequate answers, only vague answers that don't give specifics.
Thanks in advance.
