Dihydrocodeine drug testing

About Dihydrocodeine


Dihydrocodeine is a semi-synthetic opioid used to control moderate types of pain. It works by binding to certain receptors (called opioid receptors) in your brain, which reduces the pain that you feel. It is normally found in pill form.

Do you test for Dihydrocodeine?

Alphabiolabs can test a subject for Dihydrocodeine use. We test using state of the art drug testing equipment and processes to ensure that if Dihydrocodeine is present it will be detected. Also we can detect Dihydrocodeine over a period of time to show if a subject has stopped using Dihydrocodeine. For example if someone was using drugs in the past for medical reasons, but claims to have stopped when it is no longer being prescribed, this can be checked.

It is not an illegal drug, but such tests can confirm whether or not drugs are being used irresponsibly (including consumption frequency to constitute addiction) or against their intended purpose (abused).
