Re: methadose

Most opiate tests won't show up methadone,you will need a test which specifies this. But in defense of you employee they are not using illegal opiates if it is showing up negative. Hope this helps.

Re: methadose

thats exactly right,if it is negative as you say then nothing to worry about and no need to pursue the matter any more.he/she is probably a good worker and they are hard to come by nowadays.good luck-spark

Re: methadose

The answer is no...morphine will fall under opiates..methadone needs its own test just for methadone...so if you did a drug test for opiates and hes not using opiates..than methadone wont show...it will only show if you did a test that checked for methadone.

Re: methadose

jules my good dear friend is absolutely 100% correct as usual.what she said is the way it is and nothing more to add to it.it sounds like the employee is on the road to recovery.he/she is lucky to have a caring friend such as yourself.good luck to both-spark

Re: methadose

methadone is a synthetic opiate.. that is what you would have to test for.
