In conclusion, with all this taken into consideration, I believe the change in the DOT panel will be beneficial to the industry. This change should allow the industry to better identify safety sensitive employees at risk that may not meet the minimum safety standards. As a person who routinely uses multiple modes of our national transportation infrastructure, I would like to know that if a safety sensitive transportation employee is using these types of medications (all of which have warnings against performing duties that require mental acuity), that the employee was appropriately vetted to better ensure my safety.
Hi, I know this isn’t an oxycodone blog but this site seemed to be wry useful and figured I’d see if you could help out. My doctor has ordered a drug urine test for me to prescribe me oxycodone. I haven’t taken the test yet. I can go to the lab anytime and get it done. Preferably sooner than later. He said it is just to see if I am taking illegal substances and to check if I’m abusing any other drugs not prescribed to me and the main thing is to see that I am taking my medication and not selling it on the streets. I know this isn’t a “he doesn’t trust me” issue it is just to protect both of us. Well, my question is: I have had to take extra to relieve my pain and have not confronted him about the dosage yet. When I take the test is he going to check that there is more in my system than should be? I know every body is different but I would hate to willingly screw myself over. Does he only check that it’s in my system and that other drugs are NOT? Or does he take it to the next level and try to see if I take too much? Thank you do much in advance.
