Propoxyphene is a prescription drug used for the relief of pain and is structurally related to methadone. Norpropoxyphene is a major metabolite of propoxyphene, therefore, it is widely used for the testing of propoxyphene abuse. The Instant-View Propoxyphene (PPX) urine drug test provides qualitative screening results and is for use by healthcare professionals only. It is recommended that a more specific alternate chemical method (i.e. GC/MS) be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result.
