Brief Answer:
Usually within one day

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank You for consulting HealthcareMagic!

How long does it take to show up in my urine tests- Usually within one day.

Why does it not sometimes, also sometimes in instant test it shows, and lab report back doesn't- It depends on when the sample is being tested.

Exalgo overdose can be fatal, especially in a person using it without a prescription. Overdose symptoms may include slow breathing and heart rate, severe drowsiness, muscle weakness, cold and clammy skin, pinpoint pupils, and fainting.

Stay healthy and thank you for consulting! You can contact me again anytime, if you need clarifications or further assistance in future.

Ok. Well I still don't understand why the instant tests would show it, then when coming back from the lab, they say there was no sign of it.
I do have a prescription, I was looking for reasons for these test results, I'm saying I over dosed years ago on zanax, I have severe kidney function tests, and some of my colon is missing from an ostomy. I was just giving any other information that might be helpful in your answer.

Brief Answer:
Two possibilities

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Two possibilities- may be the other lab test specimen would have been tested after complete excretion of the drug in urine.

Or there may be a lab error.

Thanks.

Hi, may I answer your health queries right now ? Please type your query here... For over a year I have had pain in my luq (my gastroenterologist thinks it is subcutaneous nerve entrapment). I have also had episodes of dark urine, diarhhea and/or very light colored stools. The episodes are becoming more frequent. I am a 57 year old female trying to decide when/if I should go back to the doctor. I do not have insurance, so I don't want to see the doctor if it is stress or normal aging. I also experience muscle weakness in my right arm on occassion. I'd like a doctor's opinion.
