Hi,

Happy to read from you.
If you smoke XXXXXXX the test results will still show up as oxycodone and not anything else unless only a general test of opiates is done and non-specific to oxycodone. XXXXXXX (generic name Oxycodone) and/or its major metabolites may be measured in blood or urine to monitor for abuse, confirm a diagnosis of poisoning or assist in a medicolegal death investigation. Many commercial opiate screening tests cross-react appreciably with oxycodone and its metabolites, but chromatographic techniques can easily distinguish oxycodone from other opiates.

Hope this helps
