My Dr. gave me a mouth swab test!

Ok, I am going to break dOwn everything that happened at my dr.s appointment.(Please keep in mind I was out of my perscription 3 days early and doctor did not know this) I went in to see doctor and he did the usual rutine, left the room but came back with a cup and told me to pee in it, I couldn't go so he said ok well we can do a saliva swab test instead. I asked what for and was told to make sure there are no drugs in my system that shouldn't be and to make sure what I am perscribed is in my system, ok i took the swab and rubbed it around in my mouth handed it to the dr. He left the room and I was waiting for about 10 to 15 minutes( keep in mind I believe it was just random day for every1 there, not just me, I believe all other patients that day were being drug tested also)The dr. came back in the room,he never said anything about the drug test to me, just wrote me out my perscription pain med(percocet)and I left. ?#1. Was he waiting for the results from the swab test before he came back in. ?#2 Is it possible he could have givin me my percocet without seeing the results of my drug test first(me being unsure about how long results take for a swab test and if a doctor would have swab home testing kits and perform test right at place just like they do with the urine tests)... Thankyou every1 for taking the time to read and answer these Questions!!!

Not sure about the swab test.  I've really only heard of urine, blood and hair (with hair tests mostly used in court cases.)  Why did you run out of your script 3 days early?  Were you in withdrawal when you saw the doctor?  Have you run out early before?

I'm asking because if you're running out early due to addiction, you need to address that.  If you're running out early because your pain isn't properly controlled, you also need to address that.

You don't mention how much percocet you're taking or what your pain issue are.  One worry about taking more than you're prescribed is you may go over the limit of acetaminophen, which can cause liver damage.

Hope you'll keep us posted on the swab test.
