Opiates (OPI)

Tests for Opiates

Opiates are drugs derived from the opium poppy. These include the natural products of morphine, heroin, and codeine, but also includes semi-synthetic drugs by prescription which include hydrocodone, hydromorphone, oxycodone, and oxymorphone.

Morphine is the main drug detected in a urine test and is not metabolized but excreted from the human body as Morphine. Morphine is detectable for several days after an opiate dose.
