How long does it take after getting off MMT to piss clean and not have methadone show up?

Depends on metabolism, off hand I believe 3-5 days from last dose, probably also highly dependent on the size of your dose though..

back a few years on methadon i missed my dose for 3 days maybe 60 hours and the stuff at my clinic do not dose me because i was clean ,by urine test.thats just an example not to count on this

fuckin hell ko-d thats a long time for it to turn up in your piss mate, had you been doing the methadone for ages and then on the last day before you stopped did 10ml, or did you just do the 10ml methadone as a one off and STILL came back with a positive result after 14 days?
if its the second im really surprised, but if you ever have to go for a piss test again make sure you drink loads of water, like 6-8 pints a day
by doing that ive come back negative for gear after having a boot 48 hours before being tested
dont think i could get away with it now cause as you get older your metabolism slows down, but im guessing youre quite a bit younger than me

I think done stays in your system a long fucking time, in mine anyway. I went to a rehab facility (that may have been using very expensive tests as they charged $7,000 a week or some shit like that) and tested pos for 10 mgs of done, not having taken it for months before, after a week there. 10 mgs!! I was WTF?, I hadn't even made up a lie for it because it never crossed my mind I had completely forgotten about taking it. Be careful, a little goes a long way.

Methadone is Highly fat sol. So just like pot it can stay in your system for a Long time. Drug tests detect certain levels of a drug. Even if you have a certain drug in your system it might not show up as positive if the ng/ml (think thats the measurement) is low. For a drug test? Depends on how long and how much you took. Just wondering how long it stays in your system? Still depends but it can stay for a few weeks I've read.

it was 20 mg i believe and not 10ml....but yea it stays in it for a while because i remember i had a probation meeting and it was last sept 11th,i took a 12 panel test before i went and it showed up dirty,and i was drinkin hella water,takein pamprin cause its a diuretic and still dirty....

and it is ng/ml for drug test. . .

thats crazy mate, even if it is 20ml...
not sure about the diuretics, a sauna can help if youre pushed for time on a test, there are other tricks like putting a couple drops of bleach on your fingers then pissing on your fingers when youre being tested but ive never tried them so i cant tell you whether they work
any way you split it its long acting, it has a long half life, if you dont have a full on habit maybe best to stay away from methadone, it sneaks up behind you and grabs you by the nuts - so does any opiate for that matter but methadone is probably the worst in my opinion
its really for long term addicts that have been using for a good few years
