Hi,

I have had back pain for years but it is intolerably bad at the moment, I need to see a doctor but I have used poppy seed tea tonight to ease the pain, I am concerned that it may be detected in a test and could lead to problems if I go in and they find it in a test.

Does anybody know what doctors policies are if I do go in and test positive to morphine, codeine, thebain etc?

I may not even get a test but I don't want to risk the consequences.

I am in Australia BTW

Thankyou very much for any assistance.

My back condition would be obvious to a physician and they have noticed it before but I would hate to ruin the relationship I have with the doctor and I am fearful of getting flagged / labled a drug seeker as that is not my modus oparandi.

Well be prepared for a test and be prepared with an excuse if it buzzes just say your friend gave you some morphine because you couldn't find your meds if your doctor chews you out take it like a man and make it clear youve learned your lesson but expect future blood tests

Blood tests only test for what's actually specified to be tested. Usually if a doctor wants you to have a blood test, they will give you a pathology request form. And that form will say on it what's being tested.

And if morphine isn't on the list, it won't be in the results either.

So, when you get the form, check what's being tested. If there aren't any opioid tests, it won't be in the results either.

Just like what JessFR said, they need to specifically request to test for that. From my experience, if they are testing for drugs.. they will do a urine test. BUT if they do take your urine, that doesn't mean they're going to drug test you. Your urine can tell them several things (apart from drugs).

Dont worry about it. You'll be fine. :)

True. I've never seen drug tests that are in a purely medical setting involve blood samples. The only time I've seen blood samples used as part of drug testing is when it's to be used as legal evidence.

But again, urine or blood, the results will only be to the specific tests ordered on the form.

years ago I was slamming large amounts of poppy pod and poppy seed tea. I had a urinalysis for a job. When I received a call from the drug testing lab asking what I had been eating I knew what time it was, so I told them a poppy seed pastry. I wound up getting the job, so my guess is that they are easily able to differentiate the levels of the poppy compounds and tell that that could have been the source and not heroin or morphine pharmaceuticals. I don't know what to tell you to do because if you are trying to obtain pain meds than this will def. complicate the matter but be prepared with this defense and they will be able to check.... Thought I would just throw that out there.
