  1. Lead Mentor Dr. Andrew Saxon provided this response: Although fentanyl is stored in adipose tissue and released slowly, typically it would be a matter of days, not months, to clear fentanyl from the system sufficiently that it would not show up on toxicology testing. There probably are rare patients who may metabolize and excrete fentanyl in some kind of anomalous fashion which could be an explanation here. Is Quest doing confirmatory testing on all the specimens? If not, there are several commonly prescribed medications which cross react with fentanyl on the screening tests, which cou

I would not be surprised if there is a delay between getting the letter from SAMHSA and the license from the DEA. I would contact the DEA if you don't receive your updated DEA license soon.
