Detailed Answer:
Hi there, and thanks for your question.

Below, I list the maximum time each drug is typically detected by these tests. These numbers refer to days after last use.

Oxycodone: 2 days
Tramadol: 2 days
Diazepam: 3 days, though this can be longer for daily use

Urine screens test for the category of opiates, rather than for morphine or oxycodone or tramadol; all three will show up as opiates.

Quetiapine and zopiclone are not detectable in drug tests.

If all your medications are declared and prescribed by a doctor, there should be no problem.
