Brief Answer: Codeine metabolized into morphine,excreted urine Detailed Answer: Hi my dear, How long have you taken Codeine prior to the testing? Please bare in mind that codeine is converted/metabolized into morphine in our body if taken up to 2-3 days prior to test. Are you taking any other drug apart Codeine? What drugs did they prescribe for facial pain (vicodin, percocet)? Have consumed any food or supplement containing XXXXXXX seeds? Usually, when these foods are being consumed up to 3 days prior to testing, morphine would result in urine. All the best! Do not hesitate to contact me again if have further queries! Dr.Alba
