"Hey Doctor, did you know that hydrocodone METABOLIZES into hydromorphone? Look, look what I printed out off of Google. I found it here: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/articles/drug-book/opiates.html So, doc, I sure hope you don't think I'm taking hydromorphone on the side. In fact, have the testing company evaluate the QUANTITY of hydromorphone in my urine, and you will see that there is only a small amount, appropriate to what the HC metabolized into."
No one tampered with results.
hydromorphone is an active metabolite of hydrocodone.
I was drug tested for my employer and the result said “hydromorphone OR hydrocodone”. Even though they are molecularly different, I guess they are similar enough on a drug test. Or at my drug test lab anyway.
Thank you, I don't see him again until Feb... but I am definitely going to have a major discussion with him about this as he knows I am highly allergic to Hydromorphone. Thank you for your help. I am not happy about these results....it appears to me as though someone tampered with them....as this is not the only thing showing up that I do not take.
I would ask my doctor to test me again as it should not have showed up as hydromorphone
