Useful For

The significance of assay results from Alere Drug screen (urine) depends largely on the clinical scenario and the indication for ordering the test. This assay is useful as a screening test for the detection of five of the commonly misused and abused pain medications: benzodiazines, buprenorphine, methadone, opiates, and oxycodone. The test may be useful as a tool to provide detection of abuse, but it may also be useful as a mechanism to improve compliance with legitimately prescribed pain medication, particularly methadone.
