    I take pain meds. They gave me a random urine test and say they didn't find the meds in my system. So even if they can know I'm actually using the meds like I say I am, they can't give me anymore.

    Doesn't make sense, why weren't they in your system if you use them like your supposed to?

    That didn't make a lick of sense.

    Funny thing, you try to keep your Oxy use to a minimum so as to not become a pill-head, and the legislation put in place to keep pill-heads from illegally obtaining Oxys screws you out of legitimate medication when you need it.

    Government ineptitude at its finest.

    Because if you're a responsible and sensible human being who wants to function you don't pop synthetic Heroin when you don't need it.

    This is, of course, assuming hes taking Oxy/Hydrocodone of some type. Judging by the story, I'd say thats the case.

    It's clear that it's a stop measure for illegal sales of it. There must be way to prove your not selling it.

    I'd guess he's supposed to have a certain level of it in his blood stream so they know he's taking it, and not selling it.

    If I'm taking my meds instead of selling them, they should be in my system.
    My doc knows I'm honest. But he's stuck.

    How many are you 'supposed' to take every day, vs. how many you have in the bottle at home? If you bring in what you have, and you have more than what you should've taken by now, then wouldn't that be proof enough? If not, hair sample is good advice!

    Might have mixed up samples with someone else. Ask for a retest ...

    I put a new patch on my skin once a week. The patch count was accurate.

    I know someone that is on Fentanyl (sp?) and other stuff. They have to bring all their meds in every visit. Their are periodic tests.

    They had a car accident and there was a drug test, the test results came back negative. Perhaps it was not a tested drug. They seem to clear the drug, and many others very fast.

    Were you wearing your patch at the visit? How many days on it?

    Was it a urine, blood or hair test? They may have different results based on the drugs they are looking for.

    Pain Management doctors are under a lot of scrutiny. Sometimes poorly thought out laws are passed by ignorant people.

    I'm always wearing a patch. It was a urine test.
