it's a current to long term test to see what drugs (i.e. medications) a person has been taking. Basically the doctor is checking to see if any drugs he might prescribe would be in conflict with the medications you might already be taking.

GIVE a man a fish and you feed him for a day. TEACH a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. SADLY, most fishermen are afraid to touch the worm.

Look elsewhere on the lab slip to see what the doctor has ordered....v58.69 is a diagnosis, not a test.  All orders written by Doctors for lab tests in the US have to contain certain things. They must contain the patient's name and date, the doctor's name(and address and phone number) and signature, the name of the test or tests the dr. is wanting to be performed, a diagnosis for the patient that warrants this particular test (often if the diagnosis and the test have nothing to do with one another, the insurance company will not pay for the test) and if it is a test that requires the patient to be fasting or not it should contain those instructions. 

V58.69 is a diagnosis code used for billing purposes and translates to

Current long term use of any prescription medication, specifically one of the following medications:

antibiotics, anticoagulants, NSAIDS, antiplatelets, antithrombolytics, aspirin, insulin but is used specifically for long term use of high risk medication such as methadone, opiates, and analgesics, such as in patients who have chronic pain issues.

Although both answers prior to ..are in fact true, this small table may make it a bit more understandable Now in regards to your doc stating that specific diagnosis code, Which pertains to all of the below, It seems like he wants them to run the lab along the codes stated below, Meaning that whatever the lab results are, The lab technician will single out only the V58.69 diag. and then forward to your phycisian for his ultimate diagnosis.

P.S. V58.69 is a diagnosis code whis is completly different from the actual diagnosis that your doc makes. Good Luck either way and feel better!
