I submitted to a urinalysis today at my pain management doctors office, and I tested positive for morphine. I do not take morphine, but I am prescribed oxycodone. Could this be the reason I did not pass the test? Also, I am not the first patient at this clinic to have this problem. Five other people I know that do not take morphine tested positive last week and when the results came back, it showed they had not taken any morphine. I just want to know if oxycodone could be the reason the test said I took morphine or if it is a faulty test?
