Thanks for writing in.

As methadone is a synthetic opiate, it will not be deteected in a standard urine test done for the presence of opiates.

A methadone specific test will surely pick it up. On this test methadone can appear positive for upto 10 to 30 days after last dose intake.

Hope this helps.
