Discussions that mention paxil

[FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Purple"]I hope that I am posting this on the right board as I could not find one that specifically applied to my question. I have several mental and physical disabilities and take a litany of medications to help deal with them. Recently my doctor, who is the only one prescribing any of these medicines, asked me to take a urine test so that he might test the levels of some of the medicines that I take. I was 100% fine with this and so I supplied a urine sample on the spot. The office was closing and said that the would contact me with the results the following day. I did not know why I needed these results, but I said that was fine. Imagine my surprise when the next day I got a call telling me that my urine test had registered negative for opiates. I take the generic form of Vicodin on a daily basis. I have now been accused of things such as just not taking my medicine as prescribed to selling my pills by my doctor! He has said he will no longer prescribe me Vicodin. I am at a loss...I have been taking this medicine to control the pain of Sarcoidosis and Fibromyalgia for several years now. I am frightened of going through withdrawal from the drug as I am just being cut off by my doctor cold turkey. I do take all of my medicine as prescribed and I said there must have been some kind of mistake. I offered to come in right then and give another urine sample, a blood sample, even a hair sample if they would like. I even offered to come in right then so that they could count my pills. The answer was NO! I am hurt and astonished at the way I was treated. I have been seeing the same doctor for 17 years. I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who can help me. Tell me if it's possible for this urine test to have given a false negative for some reason. Not only do I not want to lose my medicine and go back to being in pain all the time, I want my integrity to remain in tact. The only things I did differently that day were, 1. Got a flu shot. 2. I had been taking Sudafed for congestion as suggested by my doctor. {Real Sudafed, the kind you sign for}. The other medications I take are as follows: Xannax, Xannax XR, Paxil, Effexor, Singulair, Topamax, Glucofage, Prilosec, Ventolin (Inhaler), Advair (Inhaler)....I take the generic brands of the drugs that I listed except for the Topamax & Singulair & Advair. I drink gallons of iced tea and water everyday and that is all I drink. No juice, no milk, no soda etc. Just tea and ice water all day long. Is it possible that anything that I have mentioned could have affected the outcome of this test? It should have registered positive. The Xannax showed positive, but not the vicodin. I hate that my doctor thinks I am at the very least lying to him and at the most selling my pills. Any help with this will be very appreciated. Thank you.
