Which Drugs are Found During a Urinalysis? Part 2


4. Amphetamines

Prescription products, dextroamphetamine, methamphetamine, and other forms of amphetamine are usually not detected in the urine after 1 to 4 days but it does depend on the form. Forms such as methamphetamine are widely abused illicit drugs, but other forms of amphetamine can be obtained with a prescription, and used for things such as treating ADHD or suppressing appetite.

5. Opiates

Depending on the form, metabolites, and length of use, opiates like morphine, codeine, and other opiates as well as synthetic pain relievers like hydrocodone and oxycodone are detectable for one to four days. Although heroin use is illegal, other opiates are commonly used and can be issued through prescriptions.

6. PCP

Phencyclidine (PCP) is uncommon. Since there are no legal medical uses, a positive result won’t be ignored in a urine test. PCP can still be detected three to seven days for one dose, or as much as fourteen days for repeated use.

7. Additional Drugs

Companies can use different types of screens, the most common being a 5 panel screen, but they may choose to use a single agent drugs test for one drug, a panel smaller than five with less drugs, or a 10 panel test that includes the 5 panel and benzodiazepines such as diazepam or alprazolam, methaqualone, barbiturates such as secobarbital, methadone, and propoxyphene. Every one of these – other than methaqualone, can be acquired through a prescription.
