Opiates Urine Testing
Opiates are one of the "NIDA 5" - the five drugs tested for in the standard NIDA approved drug test. The standard tests are a one step rapid qualitative immunoassay for the detection of opiate and opiate metabolites in urine. The cutoff concentration for this test is 2000 ng/ml, as recommended by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the U.S. National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA). Prior to December 1, 1998 the cutoff level was 300 ng/ml but was raised in order to reduce the possibility of false positives from poppy seeds. The cutoff for GC-MS, which detects morphine or codeine, is 150 ng/ml. The US Military uses a cutoff level of 3000 ng/ml in order to try to avoid false positives.
||Detection Period in Urine
||84 hrs (at least)
Heroin breaks down into codeine and morphine and eventually codeine breaks down into morphine compound. The opiate drug tests look for codeine, morphine, and 6-acetyl-morphine. The presence of 6-acetyl-morphine is relatively conclusive of recent heroin use, but is only detectable for a few hours after use. The presence of codeine can be the result of either heroin or codeine use. The presence of morphine can be the result of the use of heroin, codeine, or morphine. Relative levels of codeine and morphine can help determine their origin. With the new higher cutoff levels (2,000 ng/ml), Heroin use will generally only produce a positive test result for a day after single use (somewhat longer with chronic use).
Substances or conditions which can cause false positives for opiates:
- Poppy Seeds
- Tylenol with codeine
- Most prescription pain medications
- Cough suppressants with Dextromethorphan (DXM)
- Kidney infection, Kidney Disease
- Diabetes, Liver Disease
- Various Quinolones & Antibiotics
- Some antibiotics may cause false positives for opiates
- Llevofloxacin [levaquin], ofloxacin [floxin], gatifloxacin, enoxacin,
- moxifloxacin, sparfloxacin, pefloxacin, trovafloxacin, lomefloxacin,
- ciprofloxacin [cipro], cinafloxacin, norfloxacin, nalidixic acid
