Does hydrocodone show up on drug tests?

Got a drug test coming up for school or work?

Here we review basic information on hydrocodone drug tests including detection times, cutoff levels and the most frequent types of tests used. Please leave us your questions about hydrocodone use or testing below. We respond to all questions and comments personally and if we cannot answer your questions … we will direct you to the help/resources that you need.

Hydrocodone detection

Drugs have certain detection windows, or amounts of time that they are detected in your system after you take them. These detection times are general estimations of ingestion and evidence drug use and usually do not determine amount or chronic use of a drug like hydrocodone.

Furthermore, prescription drugs like hydrocodone are eliminated from the system at different rates and thus detectable for different periods of time, often long after the drug’s effect has worn off. And drug tests differ in their sensitivity. For example, hydrocodone detection time in urine is about 2-4 days (on the safe side), while hydrocodone can be detected in the hair for up to 3 months after your last pill. Most commercial drug tests for hydrocodone, however, detect hydrocodone in the urine for 6-24 hours after last use.

Hydrocodone cutoff levels

Drug testing determines the positive or negative presence of a specified amount of a drug or its metabolite in urine, blood or an alternative specimen. There is a minimum measurement applied to drug testing so that only traces of a drug or its metabolite above a specified level is reported as positive. This measure is known as a “cut-off level,” and it varies for each drug.

Therefore, a drug’s cutoff level or “screening threshold” is the level at which your tester thinks that the substance is in your system. Most cutoff levels are expressed in nanograms per milliliter (ng/ML). In lab test results of 10-panel urine drug screen for the U.S. government, for example, opiates such as hydrocodone have cutoff levels of:

  • 2000ng EMIT
  • 2000ng GCMS

Types of hydrocodone drug tests

The most frequently used hydrocodone drug test is urinalysis. Current blood or urine tests for hydrocodone only determine whether the drug been used in the last few hours or days.

Positive drug testing for hydrocodone

Several drugs and substances cross react in drug tests for opiates such as NSAIDs efavirenz, chlorpromazine, rifampin, fluoroquinolones, dextromentheorphan or even poppy seeds and quinine in tonic water. These cross reactions can make some drug tests for hydrocodone unreliable. This is why many testing centers screen exclusively for hydrocodone in the urine and have specific procedures for follow up testing. But what can you do if you test positive for hydrocodone and have not been using it recreationally?

Drug screen results are not always clear cut in their interpretation. This is why drug testing centers should use confirmatory tests, especially after an initial positive screen. If an initial screen and confirmation test are both positive, usually a licensed medical doctor who specializes in substance abuse will review your results. It is possible that medical or other reasons may influence your drug test result such as recent surgery, medications or medical discharge.

In fact, doctors should always look for a medically acceptable reason for the result and make clinical determinations on more information than a single test result.  Doctors should also not assume that you are abusing hydrocodone, although the addiction potential of Vicodin or other drugs with hydrocodone is relatively high.  In many cases, if you are using medications as prescribed, the test may be reported as negative. But in other cases, you may need to contest a false positive test result through a standard protocol.

can the doctor tell by a urine sample if you are taking too much vicodin?

7:21 pm November 5th, 2011

Hi Cathy. Yes, urine testing for hydrocodone can detect if you are taking Vicodin as prescribed, or not. See the section above about cut-off levels.

3:25 am December 20th, 2011

If you use Vicodin daily, can you have a urine drug screen that comes up positive for opiates and negative for acetaminophen?

7:19 pm December 21st, 2011

It seems like whomever was tested may actually be taking something different (harder drugs…oxycodone, morphine, heroin?) because it does not make logical sense to test positive for opiates but negative for acetaminopohen if you are taking Vicodin daily. But perhaps you can ask the drug screening facility directly?

7:37 pm January 12th, 2012

My husband tested negative twice for use of Hydrocodone and I see him take his medication often. How is this possible? The doctor said that there is no way that the test could be incorrect; especially since taken twice. How can this be? Also, he had blood work done for a life insurance policy which we received a copy of the results for. Is there something on the lab report that would indicate usage of Hydrocodone?

6:52 pm January 13th, 2012

Hi MRW. Is your husband taking hydrocodone with a prescription? If he’s taking as prescribed, even if it’s in his system, and the testing lab knows about the prescription, the test will come back “negative”, meaning, no misuse. I am not sure if insurance companies use blood tests to screen for drugs. That would be a question for the insurance company directly.

12:37 am January 17th, 2012

I have taken norco 10-325mg 2-3times a day per prescription, and i didn’t take it today. I had a urine test at my doctor’s office this afternoon, and it came back negative. My doc told me that he would send my urine to the lab. Do you think it can happen?

4:49 pm January 17th, 2012

Hi Michelle. If you are taking pain medication as prescribed, the medical officer who supervises the results will most likely register the regular use as “normal” and the drug screen will come back “negative”. Does this help?

4:17 pm January 27th, 2012

I am prescribed 3-4 lortab 10mg a day as needed. My doctor has me take a urine drug screen and urinalysis weekly. The urine drug screen is positive for the medication I am prescribed. He has claimed according to the urinalysis, that my medicine level isn’t where it should be. I do not know what this means. Is there anything to prove him wrong? What can affect the way my body is metabolizing this medicine? Now he is claiming the lortab is not in my system. I take 3-4 lortabs a day. I have suggested to him I could video myself swallowing the medication.

12:02 pm January 28th, 2012

Hi Shannon. Thanks for your question. I do not know what your doctor means, either. Does he mean that your medicine levels test high or low for what you are prescribed? Metabolism is a very complex process, which is affected by personal parameters such as your size, BMI, other medications you are taking…even what you eat. I think that you need to clarify what he means, and how you should be taking Lortab, if not as you are prescribed. Just call your doctor on the phone – you have a right to know what he means!

8:29 pm January 28th, 2012

My doctor started off 6 weeks ago with a urine drug screen to see if the lortab I am prescribed “is” in my system, and then he claims to be testing the “levels” of the lortab with a urinalysis. He is claiming that my levels are extremely lower than they should be. I physically swallow 3-4 lortabs a day so I am not sure why the doctor is claiming the opiate is not showing up on the urinalysis at the “level” is should be.

The problem I am having is I want to know where are the levels supposed to be? I do not have a baseline so to speak as to what my individual levels are suppose to be. I have taken 6 urine drug screens & urinalysis administered at the doctor’s office weekly. I asked if my diet, or the fact that my urine was visibly clear (once) would affect the “level” of medicine and this office claimed no. I have also stated that I feel these allegations are a false truth. I have also asked if they could perform a blood drug screen to test the levels of medicine in my system over the last few months, they stated blood drug screens are not accurate. I did contact the Attorney General’s office because of all of these shenanigans.

9:15 pm January 30th, 2012

Do Vicodin and Vicodin Es show up as the same drug on a urine lab screening? Thank YOU.

3:53 pm February 3rd, 2012

Hi Dee. The main ingredient detected in both Vicodin and Vicodin ES is hydrocodone. So, yes. Both Vicodin and Vicodin ES show up as hydrocodone or its metabolites.

5:09 pm February 9th, 2012

will a vicodin i took 36 hours ago show up in a drug test? (urine test)

1:39 am February 10th, 2012

what is the level supposed to be if you take 3 lortab tens a day? Is it 300 or 370? Is it different in each state?

I really need to know asap.

1:07 pm February 10th, 2012

Hi Brooke. It depends on how many Vicodins you have taken (one dose or chronic), as well as some personal details that contribute to drug metabolism. If this was a one-time dose, it is unlikely that the hydrocodone will show up on a drug screen. But please update us and let us know. Also, if you are taking Vicodin with a prescription, just take the doctor’s note to the testing center, and a positive test will be waived for medical use.

2:38 am February 13th, 2012

I use hydrocodone for my back. I at the time didnt have a prescription well I was tested by my employer from psychemedics hair test. My last pill was a couple days before that. It came back positive, anyways i was told i would have another test in 90 days and sure enough they gave me a test at exactly 90 days. Would it test positive from previous? I didnt have any hydrocodone during that 90 day period or a haircut and it did come back positive. Is 90 days suffiecient time to give someone a test again.

1:08 pm February 14th, 2012

Hi Jeff.

Thanks for your questions.

Hair follicle testing can confirm the presence of opiates 3-6 months after use minimum. Hair specimens allow drug testing centers to obtain a similar specimen days after collection of an original specimen. So, perhaps you have been tested positive by both tests due to the detection window for testing. In other words, you may have tested positive twice for the same period.

Hair testing offers a long term “historical” look at drug exposure over a period of months. Double check with the testing service, and see if they can isolate the past 6 weeks from the first 6 weeks. Also, environmental contamination and hair color bias for certain drugs is of concern, so check this for a possible false negative.

FYI, the accuracy of the different types of tests for samples of hair, urine, blood, etc. is generally the same. However, the detection time span is quite different within the different mediums.

On a 5 panel DOT drug screen is Hydrocodone tested? I look all over the Internet and its 50% yes and 50% no. I asked two pharmacists and one said yes and one said no. I was told it doesn’t break down into morphine so no, the other said its an opiate so yes. As you can see, I’m very annoyed at the fact that nobody seems know, even so called professionals. Can you please let me know if this is actually tested for? Specifically 45304N DOT Drug Panel w/ts and 35304N NIDA 5 panel w/nit. Your help would be very much appreciated! Thank you!!!

2:32 pm February 14th, 2012

Hi Jack. I can understand your confusion. Hydrocodone is technically an “opioid” and not an “opiate”. From what I understand, hydrocodone would NOT be included in a standard 5 panel DOT drug screen. Opiates included in this type of test include morphine, codeine, and heroin.

For additional clarification, you can contact Mark Snider about DOT drug testing standards at 202 366 3784. Reference:

If I took liquid hydrocodone 7.5mg over a 2 day span will it show on a hair follicle test?

11:33 am February 22nd, 2012

Hi Lee. Thanks for your question. Hair follicle tests for opiates are very precise and accurate. Hair testing can detect drug use, frequency and doseage down to the day. So, I would think that the answer to your question is most likely: Yes. Liquid hydrocodone will be detected on a hair follicle test.

9:21 pm March 1st, 2012

Hi there…I found out I will be taking a hair drug test just 3 days ago. One week ago before I found out I was going to take this drug test I had a severe back pain my dad gave me hydrocodone tablets he had prescribed to him. I took them for 4 days only. I was wondering if because of this I will now fail my hair drug test? I took them for less than 1 week, I do know they go up to 90 days detected but what if you only used it for 4 days? Thanks for any info.

12:17 pm March 2nd, 2012

Hi Jen. Hair tests are very accurate, and can detect not only use, but frequency and amount of use. Hair tests cannot detect very recent drug use but do detect use that has occurred between (approximately) 10 and 90 days prior to the test (depending on the length of the hair).

If I were you, I would self-report the drug use and seek appropriate administrative channels to avoid negative consequences (loss of job, parole violations, etc.).

12:29 am March 3rd, 2012

Test 45304N DOT DRUG PANEL W/ts. I just took a random drug test yesterday and now Im being called into work a 1/2 hr early on Monday. I had buprenorphin ( subutex) in my system. This number was on the front of the test form(45304N DOT DRUG PANEL w%

5:07 am March 3rd, 2012

Hi sKIP. When was the last time that you took opiates? What type of opiates were you taking and how much and how often?

1:27 pm March 3rd, 2012

I havent takin any opiates in over 3 years. I only take the buprenorphine . Do you know actually what 45304N DOT DRUG PANEL W/TS tests for .. I know opiates will not show up because I havent takin any in a long time. Its the subutex I’m worried about.

8:24 am March 4th, 2012

Hi sKIP. I think that the test the you refenced is the standard DOT 5 panel. This test covers THC, cocaine, amphetamines, PCP and metabolites of the following opiates: heroin, morphine, codeine. Here is more info on the 5 panel standard

But to be sure, you can always call the testing center anonymously and pose the question directly to them.

1:55 am March 5th, 2012

Does a doctor test for drugs in a annual check up? I have taken hydrocodone recently and I have an appointment soon.

8:06 am March 5th, 2012

Hi Rob. No, not that I know of. Doctors don’t usually order drug screens unless you are on an opiate treatment program, or if they need to diagnose possible overdose. In my experience, blood and urine screens used during physical exams check for cholesterol or signs of infection/disease. If you want to be sure, call your doctor’s office and ask the office administrators what happens during a physical. You have a patient right to know!

7:58 pm March 5th, 2012

I’ve got a serious problem that’s causing me a lot of stress. About 6 wks ago I accidentally took one of my mom’s hydrocodones from her pill box. I meant to get her Ibuprofen and would have been none the wiser if I hadn’t gotten incredibly nauseous and dizzy shortly after taking it. My mom quickly realized I’d taken the hydrocodone.

Well after being unemployed for 3 months, I accepted a great job offer which required me to take a hair follicle drug test on Thursday of last week. I know the drug will show up and now I’m afraid I’m going to lose the job.

Should I tell the MRO the truth or will I automatically be reported to the employer as positive since it wasn’t mine? I have old vicodins from a few years ago and was debating telling them that I took some of those instead. That way I can furnish a prescription for those. So worried. Please help.

1:17 am March 6th, 2012

ok well its been 3 days and my company has not mentioned anything about the drug test. I guess I passed. So heres some good information for someone taking subutex or suboxone. If you have to take a random drug test and all you takin are either of these 2 drugs. It will not show up on a drug test from Quest with the number 45304N DOT DRUG PANEL W/TS on the front form.

4:14 am March 6th, 2012

Hi distressed girl. We always advocate honesty when dealing with drug screens. Although this is your decision, honesty is the best way to move forward in life, even if it means temporary loss.

4:12 pm March 20th, 2012

hi my name is nikki and my doc gave me a drug test for my hydros and it came back negative but i take them 3 to 4 times a day ? i dont understand ?

4:12 am March 21st, 2012

Hi nikki. If you are taking hydrocodone as prescribed, your doctor will factor in the dosage to your drug screen. In other words, you will only test positive for hydrocodone misuse when you take RX hydros and are taking more than you should. Does this make sense?

6:31 am March 22nd, 2012

I have an urgent question as I have court tomorrow morning! I have been taking Norcos and Somas for a while now. I have positive urine tests (5 and 7 panel) for opiates. Would these tests be testing me separately for Norcos? I don’t see it on the results just positive for opiates. Are Norcos opioids and therefore wouldn’t show up as an opiate? I’m confused please help!!

12:04 pm March 26th, 2012

Hi Dany. Technically, yes. Norco is an opioid. More specifically, the hydrocodone in Norco is an opioid analgesic. The Narcotics/Opiates/Opioids class of drugs that appear on 5 and 7 panel drug screen typically confirm the presence of up to 20 metabolites/analytes of this class of drug appear on the test. The test results will simply show “POSITIVE” or “NEGATIVE” for opiates and do not show metabolite type (drug name) or amount of drug in the system.

2:44 pm March 27th, 2012

Hi I have a question. I take hydrocodone as prescribed by my doctor. I take 4 a day. He did a drug screen last month and at my visit he told me it came back clean and told me that because it came back clean he thinks I am selling them and will no longer prescribe me medication. Is there anything I can do?

4:03 am March 28th, 2012

Hi Jen. Did you lower or reduce dosage before you were drug screened?

2:35 pm March 28th, 2012

My family and I had a really bad flu bug and I told him when I went in that I did not take my meds for a few days because I could not keep anything down. That was the day he did the test and I didn’t find out until this month. I have been with this doctor for about 4 years and I go in every month.

5:08 am March 29th, 2012

Hi Jen. Well, the best recourse that you may have in this situation is to find another prescribing doctor. Does that sound right to you?

6:54 pm April 7th, 2012

Can a urine test tell the difference between vicodin and norcos?

11:00 pm April 8th, 2012

Hi. Urgent question… I have a probation test tomorrow morning that will probably be tested on an EMIT machine. Saturday night I thought it was a good idea to take 3 norco 10s. Dumb. Tomorrows Monday so if I go at 8 I will have 36 hours under my belt. Do u think ill be ok?

3:25 am April 9th, 2012

Hi Benny. We always recommend being honest about drug use to probation officers BEFORE testing. Honesty shows a willingness to change. Are you ready to change or are you content to cross your fingers and hope that breaking your probation will go undetected?

4:09 am April 9th, 2012

Hi Tina. From what I understand, urine drug screens are the least precise of all drug screens. They cannot show quantities of frequency of use, but report with positive or negative drug use, in this case for opioids or opiates. So, no, a urine screen for hydrocodone metabolites is not precise enough to determine the difference between Vicodin or Norco.

Why do you ask?

6:39 am April 9th, 2012

I am perscribed vicodin. I had went out of town and forgot my meds at home, and my sister gave me two of her norcos. I am currently a temp at my job and will soon be getting hired on and will have to do a drug screen. So, I was curious as if they would be able to tell the difference.

8:14 am April 9th, 2012

Hi Tina. Thanks for explaining more. You should probably be OK as long as you are taking the prescriptions as prescribed. Then, you can present either a copy of the prescription from your doctor, medical records or the medicine container with the appropriately labeled prescription (or the label from the container) to the Medical Review Officer (MRO) in charge of the test. This way, if you are using the pain killers within therapeutic levels, your drug screen will show NEGATIVE.

5:19 pm April 10th, 2012

I haven’t worked in almost 2 years and lost my last few jobs due to medical issues from my time in service that have got worse the last few years. i’m being seen by neurology, pain clinic, and more at the VA. the question is how do i get employment and keep it with the medications i’m on and lack of mobility. i have days were i can barely move and days i can’t move. i have issues with falling as well.
My medications are:hydrocodone 10/ acetaminophen 325mg 4 times a day, morphine 30mg 3 times a day, amitriptyline 150mg a day, cyclobenzaprine 10mg 3 times a day. additional meds are albuterol inhaler, omeprazole, ranitidine, and i also take mens one a day health formula.
if it helps my injuries are right wrist, right shoulder, neck, LBP into legs, both knees, right ankle, left heel. i might have missed something but you get the picture.

1:14 pm April 11th, 2012

Hi Art. I’d stay away from any physical labor, if possible. You’ll be able to pass pre-employment drug screens if you present your medical record or prescriptions to the Medical Review Officer before you test. But in terms of career guidance, you may want to contact your local social services to see what resources are available. You sound able and eager to work, but you just need to find the right match.

Does this help?

4:18 pm April 11th, 2012

yes thank you.
since i was a teen i’ve been a workhorse. my previous jobs were many automotive and diesel so i wanted make sure if i try getting employment in that field but office settting i would not be wasting the companies time and money.
I just like letting people know reasons for my questions and thoughts.

Thank you again

4:32 pm April 11th, 2012

Hi…my husband took 3 vicodin about 2 weeks ago and now has a hair follicle drug test within the next couple of days. This wasn’t his prescription! Will he test positive, or because he only took a few will he be ok?

12:08 am April 12th, 2012

I have been on Oxycontin 10mg twice a day, and a breakthrough drug called Oxycodone (which causes headaches on occasion), I have been using them as directed, but hated the headaches from the Oxycodone, so I used some old Vicodin (6 months older) on a couple occasions lately.
Because I have to see my pain management Doctor, they usually give a simple urine test, I think they mainly see for cocaine and other street drugs, but I’m not sure. MY QUESTION is since I took some Vicodin in place of the Oxycodone, will the Vicodin show up or will it just come up as an Opiate only?? PLEASE ANSWER ASAP

12:09 am April 12th, 2012

I have a fractured L-5 and sciatica for reason I take those Opiates!

3:22 am April 12th, 2012

Hi Buddy. Thanks for your question. Urine drug screens normally test for the presence of certain classes of medications without detailing the exact metabolites. Hydrocodone and oxycodone are in the same class of medications (opiate derivatives called opioids) and would show up as the same type of drug. But, you might want to disclose the Vicodin use to your doctor and inform your doctor that you were trying it out to avoid the oxycodone side effects…that’s important diagnostic information. Each doctor does view medication dosing individually, so you’ll have to feel it out. But I always think that honesty is the best policy.

6:45 am April 12th, 2012

Dear addiction blog or anyone else who’d like to respond.

Thank you for the honesty, I thought I’d wait to see if indeed she will bring that up first. She (My Pain management Doctor first), I personally don’t like Vicodin either because of too much Tylenol (bad for your Liver).
So I will either ask for something different for a breakthrough drug, other then Oxycodone or Vicodin. If not I may ask for 2 of the 20mg Oxycontin instead of just the 10mg 2x a day, and skip the breakthrough all together!.
I would not be lying, I will confess that I did try that (Vicodin), but was concerned with the Tylenol, I will have to feel it out and try to discern how it goes, thanks Buddy

2:17 pm April 12th, 2012

Hi nervous. From what I understand, single one-time doses of Vicodin are more difficult to detect than long term chronic use in hair follicle exams. Can you husband self-report the Vicodin use before the test? What kinds of consequences does he face?

6:24 pm April 16th, 2012

if i stoped taking hydrocodone 18 days before i took a pain management urine lab test will i be ok

6:37 pm April 16th, 2012

I took ten to twelve 7.5 hydrocone within a week ,I start pain management in 18 days ,,I was told I will be tested when I come in and they send out the urine test to a lab ,,I havent taken anything in the last 18 days ,,my question is will I be ok? and will they be able to detect it or will it be out of my system in the 18 days,thanks

8:55 pm April 16th, 2012

Hi, I have a drug test on June 7,2012. I have been taking Hydrocodone for the past 4 months. I want to know will show in my drug test positive for that. As of today i stop taking them so that i can have some clean time. Please if anyone knows please let me know.

3:24 am April 22nd, 2012

Hi there:
I’m very concerned with the drug testing I’m recieving in my pain mgmt. Ofc… For 6mos now, I have been told that I have had in-office urine results coming back as “None Detected” & just yesterday my doctor refused to fill my meds for 7days &only gave me Norco 10’s T.I.D. (I am on a 72hr 25mcg/hr Gen. Fentanyl patch, Oxycodone 15mg 4x’s/d PRN, Soma 350mg BID/ Adderall XR 40mg &IR 20mg Q.D., &Xanax ER 2mg/1mg IR Q.D.) … I went on a trip to OHIO 2wks ago &lost all my meds/luggage. I called in my heart meds (HCTZ 25mg. Lisinopril 40mg. Gen Norvasc 5mg) &that’s all that I’v had since April 5th. I let office kno this happened since it was Lost &not Stolen (couldn’t do police report for replacement). She has been my doctor for past 7+yrs &this framing me as a liar has really shaken my foundation of trust w/her. I want to call on Monday to say I want n apology when send out lab comes back. Wld love to hear 3rd party P.O.V. before this bold, audacious demand… PS. I removed my last patch just b4 showering for office visit… Thanks ahead of time

1:41 pm April 26th, 2012

Hi, I know this isn’t an oxycodone blog but this site seemed to be wry useful and figured I’d see if you could help out. My doctor has ordered a drug urine test for me to prescribe me oxycodone. I haven’t taken the test yet. I can go to the lab anytime and get it done. Preferably sooner than later. He said it is just to see if I am taking illegal substances and to check if I’m abusing any other drugs not prescribed to me and the main thing is to see that I am taking my medication and not selling it on the streets. I know this isn’t a “he doesn’t trust me” issue it is just to protect both of us. Well, my question is: I have had to take extra to relieve my pain and have not confronted him about the dosage yet. When I take the test is he going to check that there is more in my system than should be? I know every body is different but I would hate to willingly screw myself over. Does he only check that it’s in my system and that other drugs are NOT? Or does he take it to the next level and try to see if I take too much? Thank you do much in advance.

1:19 pm April 27th, 2012

I’m taking hydrocodone 10 mg presricption,been on them for two years pretty amune to them ,twisted my ankle real bad three days ago,so have been taking two more than what the bottle says to ,had a accident and had to take a post accident drug screen today ,will it fail me for taking more than prescribed?

1:24 pm April 27th, 2012

there 10-650 not 10 mg

5:49 pm April 27th, 2012

Hi Tony. Thanks for your question. Doctors use drug tests to both screen for other drugs of use outside of your prescription, as well as monitor prescription use. If you’re using too much, they will be able to tell. And if you’re not taking enough, they assume that you are selling it. Do you have a pain management agreement or contract set up with your doctor yet?

11:24 pm April 27th, 2012

Thanks for the answer it was exactly what I trying to find out. It is unfortunate that he can see these things seeing as I am not doing it for kicks. I have signed an agreement but sadly I have not a copy though I should’ve asked for it.

12:38 am April 30th, 2012

Hi James. Yes, it is possible that with very recent use at twice the dosage, you can fail a drug screen for prescription hydrocodone use. Please let us know how it goes.

I take Loretab 10 3x day I had a 10 Panel drug test will this check my levels or just show it in my system I do have a prescription for this has a have had my backbroke in 3 places and have several disc issues in both back and neck I want to keep working and wonderef if. work will allow this per my levels.

3:10 am May 5th, 2012

My wife is prescribed lortab 5 4x/day. Dr requested blood test. If she takes remaining 4 pills prior to test will levels be ok. She hasn’t taken them as her bottle was lost.

4:50 am May 7th, 2012

Hi, if someone takes hydrocodone for a few months, only maybe 10mg a night before bed, will this make the detection time in a urine test extremely long? If use is stopped 4-5 days in advance, and acompanied with excercise and lots of water, should it be out of system? I read that even if it is used for a long period of time, it still is eliminated from the body in a few days if usage is stopped because supposadly it is one of the quicker medications when it comes to elimination from the body

6:03 pm May 7th, 2012

I just had a urine drug test for Percocet to make sure I was taking it and not selling it. I had taken a few more than what I am prescribed, as I’m supposed to take no more than 4 a day but I always save a couple from every refill just in case I’m having a bad day as sometimes the pain can be greater and even if I take the medication it doesn’t always seem to work.. Anyway, I had took 8 on Friday, Saturday and 6 Sunday, 2 Monday morning and the test was at 1pm that same Monday. I didn’t know I was going to get tested or I wouldn’t have taken that many the days before.. I don’t take any other illegal drugs so I’m not worried about that but I’m wondering if they’re just going to check to make sure it’s in my system or if they will be able to see I took more than I was supposed to. I was too afraid to ask but the way they said it was they just needed to make sure it was in my system and I told them I had JUST taken 2 a couple hours before the test. So I guess my question is will they just test to see if it’s there or can they tell that I took more than I should have? (sorry for the long story)

1:24 pm May 9th, 2012

Hi Terry. Most multiple drug screen panels are designed to test for the PRESCENCE of the drug or drug metabolites in the system, and do not detects AMOUNTS of these drugs, other than “above” or “below” POSITIVE VS NEGATIVE thresholds. Also, be sure to present your prescription to the Medical Review Officer in charge of the test, and your results will most certainly show NEGATIVE as long are you are taking the Lortab as prescribed.

5:46 am May 10th, 2012

I’m fighting for custody of my sisters kids. Mind you I didn’t know she was going to have them removed from the home. My hair follicle test is voluntary, recommended by my attorney. I’ve researched hair follicle test and read the comments above but I really need a specific answer. I don’t remember when but a month ago or sometime in the last three months I took one lortab 10 one day and another the next day. So two pills in two days, is that going to register and does it exceed the cut off level? How much does one pill equal in nano grams or metabolites?

11:18 am May 10th, 2012

I am on oxycodone 160 miligrams a day, I also am on 80 mil. of lasix an prednisone among a bunch of other meds. my doctor did a urine and said it came back showing they oxy were not in my urine , this is not possible as I take my meds and prior to this I just got out of the hospital after a 6 day inpatient for asthma, I asked them to take a blood test and they said they couldnt. now they have thrown me out I have been with this clinic for 35 years now I cant find a doctor to take me cause this is in my medical record. Do they have the right to put this in my med. record and does the urine test fall under lab. work. thanks for your reply

12:12 pm May 10th, 2012

Hi concernedhubby. Doctors test people who are on pain medications in order to make sure that they are:

1. Taking the prescription as written, and not abusing the drugs.
2. Taking the prescription as written, and not trying to sell the drugs to others.

Did you wife report the Rx missing when it was first lost? This may be the best way to continue treatment. Also, how long has she been seeing the same doctor?

12:34 pm May 10th, 2012

Hello Cee87. We cannot suggest ways for people to avoid drug screen detection. Instead, we suggest honest action and admission of prescription drug use.

1:14 pm May 10th, 2012

Hi Cindy. You might want to make an appeal and ask for a hair sample test, which can detected oxycodone in your system for 90 days or more…but it may be at your own expense.

I am not sure if doctors put drug screen results in medical records. And I’m not sure where urine based drug screens would be categorized within a medical record.

1:20 pm May 10th, 2012

Hi Jasmine. Thanks for your question. But we need to know more about the drug screen in question in order to provide you with an answer. Some drug tests simply indicate POSITIVE or NEGATIVE use, while others can quantify the amount of oxycodone in your system.

11:01 pm May 10th, 2012

i never take vicodin i took one tues about 11am and had a 5 panel dot non-rapid drug test on thurs about 2pm. should i be worried

12:09 am May 11th, 2012

I just wanted to fill many in that DO NOT get an OPIATE for pain at one Doctor, and get a breakthrough drug from another. ALL States are now passing laws so that whatever doctor you get pain pills from that are narcotic opiates, will be sent a file on ALL other places you may get your medication. If you are found out or think you have been, BE TRUTHFUL!! Just a heads up. Buddyd

10:20 pm May 11th, 2012

I took two 2 vicodin on Tuesday at about 10 am. They were prescribed to me several months ago. I used them for the reason they were prescribed. I had a test on Friday at about 2pm. Is it likely I will test positive? I still have chronic back pain from a break and i requested a milder medication. I just had a flare up that day.

10:21 pm May 11th, 2012

Also is it illegal?

8:42 pm May 13th, 2012

Can you quantify the level of Loratab 10 in a employment drug test or will the MRO person just ask for your prescription. I take 2/3 a day some days none some days extra due to chronic back pain I only do this when physical work is extremely hard on the job like lifting over 150 lbs.

4:12 pm May 14th, 2012

Hi Matt. You should test NEGATIVE for hydrocodone or opiates if you present your prescription to the Medical Review Officer (MRO) in charge of drug screen results and have been taking it within your prescription dosage limits. Call the testing center and ask that the prescription be included in your file.

4:29 am May 15th, 2012

I took my hair follicle Friday, guess I’ll keep you posted

5:01 pm May 15th, 2012

Hi I was wondering my wife has to have a drug test done I believe it’s a 12 panel test and about 6 days ago she took 8 vicodin 7.5 one day due to breaking her finger in the door but shes not suppose to have them in her system will they be out by then

12:13 pm May 16th, 2012

Hi licinda. Most employment drug tests (which are urine based) will screen for MOST RECENT drug exposure. So as long as you present your prescription and test within the expected limits of that prescription, you should be OK.

11:08 pm May 18th, 2012

is it possible after taking a hydrocodine pill that being tested 2 hours later it woul show up that you had cocain in your system

12:04 pm May 21st, 2012

Hello Michael. False-positive screening tests for cocaine are unlikely. Is there any way that the hydrocodone could have been laced with cocaine? Or did you drink coca tea? Coca tea ingestion can result in a positive urine assay for cocaine metabolites.

1:15 am May 24th, 2012

I was prescribed 4 bottles of hydrocodone syrup (Hycodan) a month ago (1 bottle per 6 days) that were 180ml each which equates to a 6 day supply of 30ml per day. Every week, I finished a bottle in about 3 days but I never took more than 180ml within any 6 day span. When my refill became available, I repeated the process for 3 more weeks. I never took more than 180ml in each span of 6 days but I did end up taking the 180ml in about 3 days every week that I renewed the prescription. I have a hair test coming up for pre-employment. Will I pass? I haven’t taken more than I was prescribed, but I did take it faster than I was prescribed.

3:11 am May 24th, 2012

My first thoughts are that there is way too much % error to detect an approximate amount of drugs used on 3-6 days (even 7 days because this is only an 1/8th of an inch). If a half inch corresponds to 30 days of usage, then 6 days would correspond to 0.1 inches (very small). Considering that a very small time frame (1 week) requires more strands of hair than a 30 day time frame and being that the hair cut from the head is never cut perfectly straight, hair strands would get mixed together that do not represent the same date in time. Thus a positive result cannot be narrowed to a time frame this small. However, a 30 day sample of 0.5 inch is much larger and should greatly reduce the percent error. Thoughts?

7:06 am May 25th, 2012

I’ve been sick for about a week and a half 6 or 7 days ago. I have taken some of my wife Norco. I have only taken two pills for chest and body pain. Now that is 7 days later, i have to take a urine test. Will I pass? This is for pre-employment. Please help. I’m very nervous.

7:07 am May 25th, 2012

another note. It’s 5/325 dose. I’m 5’4 about 150 pounds.

10:41 am May 25th, 2012

Hi Garrett. From what I’ve read about hair assay technology, hair samples give testers a view of the person’s drug use over time, and are not meant to be exact replications pinpointing drug use to specific periods in time (this is for general drug testing).

Drugs and drug metabolites remain trapped in the hair shaft indefinitely, thus providing a much larger “detection window” than urinalysis, (about 60 days of use can be seen in one inch of hair). But in terms of exactness, I think that hair analysis is more precise when testing for certain drugs than others. And is most useful as a way to categorize use as “heavy,” “moderate,” or “casual”.

In the end, taking hydrocodone more frequently that prescribed will be a judgment call by the Medical Review Officer (MRO) in charge of determining drug use and abuse during drug screens. You might be best off to present you prescription to the MRO and make any necessary explanations, if required. So, I can’t really say if you’ll pass, or not.

11:26 am May 25th, 2012

Hello Kim. Two single doses of Norco will most likely already be metabolized and passed through your system for a drug test a week after you took them. It is highly likely that you will pass the drug test with a NEGATIVE result.

12:50 pm May 25th, 2012

If you had to make an educated guess on my pass/fail situation… Do you have an opinion?

3:52 am May 26th, 2012

I know this is an addiction blog and sure most people asking questions are being facetious by beating around the bush. But I can’t help but think how this country has gone to a drug test happy country for people wanting to work. We are one of the only countries that demands urine, hair or hot air to work for a living. What happened to privacy? Are we at that point where big business has taken over our freedoms as a human to ingest what we want aslong as it hurts no one? Yes I understand we need to drug test people who work in dangerous situations. But they should only be tested if they appear under the influence. Do most people know that your doctor/nurse aren’t drug tested but your local janitor or garbage man is?

Sorry for the rant

7:09 am May 29th, 2012

Hi notsofree. I am an American living in another country. I am a former drug user and now manage workers. From my experience, drugs do affect work quality and quantity. As an employer, I want my employees to be drug free for a number of reasons, including:

1. Good mental health
2. Efficient work
3. Quality work

In terms of employer drug testing, I think it’s less an issue about the moral theory of freedom…and more about the practical issues involving employment. Employers want the best return on their investment….and a drug user is not operating at 100% capacity.

12:02 am May 30th, 2012

hi i been taking norco about one to three times a week. i have a drug test coming up soon i took my last pill today how long will it stay in my system if i take a urine test

10:22 am May 30th, 2012

Hello jeannette. The last norco will probably be detectable in your system for the next 2-3 days. Hydrocodone has a pretty short half life and is metabolized and excreted from the system relatively quickly. In any case, you can bring your prescription to the drug testing center and present it to the Medical Review Officer. Even if the hydrocodone is in yours system, you will test NEGATIVE for abuse when you present a valid prescription.

11:54 pm May 31st, 2012

Last year I was prescribed a bottle of Percocet when I had my appendix out. I only used about half of them.

Last Sunday I had a splitting headache and decided to take a couple pills 2 – (10-325)

Today is Thursday and I just got a job offer. I am excited but scared of the urine drug screen and a hair sample collection they have asked me to take tomrrow (Friday). It has been 4 days since I took the pills, but they are the first pills I have taken in 6 months.

Am I going to fail the test? I think it has been long enough to get it out of my Urine, but will they find it in my hair? I am so Scared I have screwed up this opportunity.

Please let me know what to expect

7:54 pm June 1st, 2012

Hi Scared. You should pass the test. present your prescription up front, and the Medical Review Officer will account for therapeutic use if you were taking the Percocet as prescribed. If oxycodone is detected in your urine, the levels will be adjusted for prescription use and a NEGATIVE result should be reported. If you have already submitted a sample, simply submit the Rx to the administration ASAP.

Hope this helps!

5:50 pm June 3rd, 2012

I have a question. I took a physical for a new job. The Doctor called and got me all worked up. I don’t do drugs and I’m healthy. He told me I passed the physical and drug test. But I had a perscription for hydrocone but it wasn’t in my system and he said I had refilled it 6 times in the past year so he wanted to know why I wasn’t taking it. He said he didn’t know if I would pass or not nec of this

6:28 am June 4th, 2012

If I am taking my vicodin correctly and the levels show higher than what that should is this possible? are tests sometimes inaccurate with urine? should I just ask for a blood test or ask for those from now on since those are more accurate? I am correct that blood is more accurate right? THANK YOU

9:57 am June 4th, 2012

Hi Kawasaki. Thanks for your question. Doctors screen patients not just for drug abuse, but also for drug distribution. Some patients sell their prescription drugs to others who use them to get high. So your doctor was asking about the hydrocodone prescription in order to get a feel for your medicinal use.

10:08 am June 4th, 2012

Hi aaron. Thanks for your question. Are you taking any other medications? Also, because human error occurs so often during drug testing you should be able to request a second urinalysis for confirmation.

A blood test will show precise levels of hydrocodone in your system, but its detection window is much shorter. So even if you were taking more hydrocodone that you were prescribed, it might not show up if enough time passed for hydrocodone levels to drop in your system. So I doubt the doctor’s office would order a blood test – these types of tests are ordered more often during ER situations.

Perhaps you can request a hair sample drug screen, which shows drug use OVER TIME…and will give your doctors a look at a longer period of Vicodin use.

1:17 pm June 4th, 2012

wel how weird is this…….I went and dropped for an instant and even though id been taking it all day before it was negative…….live nothing at all.(vicodin) But idk what the lab test will show this is really weird

7:27 pm June 4th, 2012

Hi aaron. Certain prescribed and over-the-counter medications and/or foods might generate false negative results for different substances. Plus, certain tests are limited in their accuracy. For example, thin-layer chromatography (TLC) can distinguish between drugs in a class but it also can produce false negative reports because it requires relatively large amounts of drugs in specimens before these drugs can be detected. Do you know what kind of test specifically was ordered?

7:36 pm June 4th, 2012

My husband took 4 hydrocodienes which were his dads approximately 2 months ago. He has a hair follicle. Will it show up? Also he has just got his hair cut very short. Is it possible that helped at all?

7:49 pm June 4th, 2012

Hi Cyndy. Yes, it’s possible that a one-time concentrated dose of hydrocodone may show up on a hair follicle test. Hair samples go back in time about 30 days for every 1/2 inch of hair on the head or body.

3:24 am June 5th, 2012

Take 4 – 7 10/325 hydrocodones a day. Had an accident at work. Had to take a DOT 5 urinalysis. Will it show up?

7:41 am June 5th, 2012

Hi Willardya. If you take hydrocodone with a prescription, just take the prescription with you to the drug testing center. Once you test within the normal expected limits for prescription use, the drug screen will be reported as NEGATIVE. But if you don’t have an Rx for hydrocodone, the test will most likely be reported POSITIVE for opiates/opioids.

1:15 pm June 5th, 2012

I had a urine test / 10 panel and took two of my 5-500 hydrocondone at midnight and another two at 8am and then had a test at 10am ~~ was this enough time and enough medicine to pass my urine screen and for it to show positive ???
I am prescribed 4 hydroconde per day ( 5/500)

6:20 am June 6th, 2012

It did end up showing up on the lab test but levels were fine, GREAT blog idea btw I see that it has caught on. Thanks for all your help-Aaron

10:19 am June 6th, 2012

You are welcome, Aaron!

Hi Donniedean. I do not intend offend you, but this question seems like you’re trying to trick the system. And to be honest, your drug screen results will speak for themselves. Doctors can always test you via hair samples to see whether or not you have actually been taking hydrocodone over the long term. Diverting hydrocodone by selling pills to others is a federal crime punishable by jail term in a federal prison.

10:37 am June 6th, 2012

Totally agree with the blog…….you shouldn’t be concerned to pass a test if you are taking your meds correctly. Don’t be one of those people ruining things for patients that actually need this stuff. Not saying you are just how you typed it it deffinately sounds like it. If you are please stop for sick patients and your own benefit.

5:32 pm June 6th, 2012

6 Months ago I hurt my shoulder/back (rhomboid muscle pull/tear). I did physical therapy for a month in March/April. By the time I was done pain was present, but manageable mostly with prescribed ibprofen.
This past weekend I re-aggravated my injury. I ended up taking 1 750mg vicodin Friday, none Saturday, 2 Sunday, and 1 Monday evening.
They were prescribed to me, though the script was written while I was doing PT.

This morning I took a pre-employment urine test. I was completely straight forward about what I had taken.
I got the impression from her that if I fail the test, prescription or not, it’s going to be considered failed.
Very stressed out about this. My questions are:
1. What are the chances of me passing the test?
2. Will the fact that I have a script even help me?

10:37 pm June 6th, 2012

I took 2 hydrocodone pills about 7 days ago. These are the only pills i have taken in the last 4 months. I took a hair drug test for a police agency yesterday. Will this come up in the test or will it be such a small amount that it wont be detected?

8:31 am June 7th, 2012

Hi Becca.

1. It’s not clear whether or not hydrocodone would have passed through your system for a Wednesday AM test after dosing on the weekend and Monday evening. You’ll have to see.

2. Yes. Absolutely. If you are taking Vicodin as prescribed, seek consult with the Medical Review Officer and not a test administrator. The Medical Review Officer makes the final decision about whether or not tests are POSITIVE or NEGATIVE. And this decision is based on whether your levels of hydrocodone correspond with expected norms.

8:40 am June 7th, 2012

Hi Mike. The answer to your question is: possibly, yes. A hair follicle test can accurately show even small amounts of drug use. But the detection window for you is very short.

Hair analysis to be very effective in detecting drug use within one (1) week of ingestion. The only limit on the length of time in which drug use can be detected is the length of the hair—1 inch of hair can track any drug use over a 60-day period. So, you are right on the border of detection.

5:17 pm June 8th, 2012

I have been taking Kadian 30 ER and Norco 10 for roughly 1.5 years now. At my last Dr. visit at the pain clinic my Dr. told me that my last urine drug screen was negative for Norco. I take 2 daily, everyday. The Kadian was present however. This is the 2nd time i have had this happen and now the Dr. says he can no longer prescribe any narcotic pain meds. I have had several test before come back normal (showing the norco and kadian). I have had no changes in medicine or change in my habits of taking them. I am stressed out because I cant understand why this is happening. Why is it that when I take my meds as prescribed some test come back negative and others positive from the same company that has always tested my urine.

12:07 am June 10th, 2012

If I am going to get a regular health check up and blood work, will opiaties show up?

9:40 am June 10th, 2012

Hi Aman85. As far as I know, regular blood work for a health physical checks for cholesterol levels, white v red blood cell count (infection) as well as other health markers. Opiates can be detected in blood, but a routine exam won’t be looking for them. However, call your doctor’s office and check to be sure. You can make an anonymous phone call and let us know the results.

4:31 pm June 11th, 2012

Hi Bill. Yes, urine screens are highly subject to human error. Simply request a confirmation test with the original sample or request a new sample be taken. Not to worry, these things happen.

5:22 pm June 11th, 2012

I took two 7.5-500 Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen one day ago. 14 hours later I took a pre-employment drug test where I presented them with the rx bottle with refill until date of 2/21/12. It has been prescribed to me for pain from occasional bouts with kidney stones. How will this effect my employment possibilities?

5:30 pm June 11th, 2012

Hi Steve. If you have a prescription for hydrocodone-acetaminophen and are taking it as prescribed, the Medical Review Officer at the drug testing center will interpret the levels of hydrocodone in your system and analyse them next to standard levels for therapeutic use. As long as you’re taking it as prescribed, you should be OK and the test will come back NEGATIVE.

6:12 pm June 11th, 2012

The Dr did say he called the company and they repeated the test with the same urine sample at his request and it was still negative. After further reading I am convinced that it indeed might have been negative due to the fact that the week leading up before my Dr visit and drug screen I was drinking way more water than usual and I feel I simply flushed it all out. The time between oral intake of Norco and drug screen was probably 22 hours roughly

9:09 pm June 11th, 2012

Just wanted to give an update.
I’m not sure if the vicodin actually showed up, but Friday I got the call that I passed the test! Today was my first day at work and I am very happy.
I wanted to thank you for your reassurance, it helped me keep my stress down while I waited for the call!

6:50 pm June 12th, 2012

Our company is a little behind times. We generally only do drug screens at random or by suspicion, using the do it yourself kits from local drug store. We recently had an employee “acting funny” on the jobsite. She was given the test and the results are as follows:

Positive Hydrocodone = 15854 ng/ml
Positive Hydromorphone= 3627ng/ml

What are the acceptable levels? She told us she has a prescription, but the levels seem pretty high.

5:23 am June 13th, 2012

i took 40 mg of hydrocodone saturday, and drank alot of water sunday that made me urinate and have diarhea all day and sweat, will my DOT 5 urine test for pre employment for caltrans on monday be under the cut off limit to pass?

4:42 pm June 13th, 2012

Can hydrocodone show up as oxy on a urine test?

12:56 am June 14th, 2012

I know that for someone who has taken hydrocodone pills in a 90-day span before a hair follicle test, the presence of hydrocodone will show up. But in order to test positive, it must past the 300 pg/mg threshold. So my question is hypothetically for someone without a prescription, how many hydrocodone pills must one take to surpass this 300 pg/mg threshold and ultimately fail? Would it have to be a concentrated dosage, such as 3 pills a day for several consecutive days? Or could the threshold be reached if someone took 5 hydrocodone pills in a 90-day span?

3:57 pm June 16th, 2012

I just found out that I’m going to take a pre job drug screen. I am prescribed norco 5 mg for herniated disc. I sometimes take much more than prescribed after a hard day but not always is there a certain amount of days I should wait to take the test? I have a rx for the norco to take with me but I’m worried? I really want this job so how long would it take to minimize the amounts that are detected? Please help

10:27 am June 17th, 2012

Hi Bill. Yes, drinking lots of water can produce a dilute urine specimen for urinalysis. Working in hot weather conditions and drinking large amounts of fluid, taking a diuretic, or drinking fluids immediately before providing the specimen can alter the test results. Thanks for following up. I hope that it works out for you.

Hello Becca. You are welcome. Having some idea of what may happen can help ease anxiety, for sure!

Hi Trevor. The cutoff levels for testing POSITIVE for opiates are 2000ng EMIT and 2000ng GCMS. To understand fully the type of drug use your fellow employee has, you’ll need to consult a professional medical review officer at a drug testing laboratory. These doctors “make the call” and analyse drug screen results and can tell you more.

Hi Al. Each person metabolizes opioids differently, so we’re not able to predict whether or not you’ll pass a drug test. You’ll just need to wait and see.

Hi hern33. It depends on what type of test is administered. In general, drug panel screens only show POSITIVE or NEGATIVE for opiates, and will not distinguish between oxy or hydrocodone. However, more specific testing can identify specific drug metabolites and make the distinction. What kind of drug test are you talking about?

Hello Real. Thanks for your question. From my reading, it’s unclear about how much hydrocodone you’d have to take in order to be detected in hair analysis. While concentrated doses of hydrocodone are easier to detect, it is still possible (theoretically) that single dose concentrations of hydrocodone remain in the hair follicle and be detected.

Hello Desiree. Hydrocodone levels for a urinalysis should even out after a few days of taking Norco as prescribed. However, hair follicle testing can detect overdosing for a few months previous to the test. Do you know what kind of test you’ll be taking?

12:16 am June 20th, 2012

Can you be arrested for taking to much vicoden? Can it be toxic, and is there a scale for it on what a good dosage is?

5:42 pm June 21st, 2012

Hi Roy. Technically, YES. You can be arrested for taking Vicodin in ways and doses other than prescribed. Yes, Vicodin can be toxic….check out this article for more information:

10:46 pm June 25th, 2012

Hi, I take 3 10’S a day of Norco that is prescibed for pain from knee and ankle injuries from service in the army and back pain. I really want to go to school to be a Pharmacy Tech but am scared that after all the schooling I will not be able to be employed with the medication I am prescribed. Do people with this medication being prescibed still hold jobs or do they get turned down?

1:54 am June 26th, 2012

Hi Jenn. Federal civil rights laws prohibit discrimination in many
areas of life against qualified “individuals with disabilities.” This should also apply to pharmacy jobs. Check out the the Equal Employment Opportunities Act for more information and good luck with your studies!

P.S. Even though it may not apply to you, check out this pamphlet about the rights to employment for former drug users and addicts:

Hi Jon. Thanks for your question. Yours is a technical question and one which many people have. As far as I know, hydrocodone can be tested for and detected as an “opiate”. Panel drug screens generally test for opiates and opioids as a group. But hydrocodone requires a special “Expanded Opiates” test, which may be included in a 12 panel screen (generally not included in a 10 panel screen). Check the drug screen itself and see which groups are included. If the 12 screen panel includes “Expanded” or “Extended” opiates, hydrocodone may be detected…although your body may have already metabolized the hydrocodone by now. Everyone is different, but urine screens generally do not detect opioids more than 48 or 72 hours after ingestion.

Need to know soon
11:37 am July 4th, 2012

The MRO called me and left a message to call them back. Anyways I did and he told me I was hot for morphine and asked if I had a scriped for it and told him yes even though I don’t, however I do have one for lortabs… the MRO said he needs 5 things off the bottle, I told him I didn’t have the bottle with me however I wondering what are the 5 things he’s going to ask for, I would really like to know befor I call back for the 2nd time. Also is there anyway to just give him the info on my lortab bottle maybe just change the name and my dos? Or do they call my doc. Or is there a database he can check to see if I’m really percribed morphine or not.

5:14 pm July 4th, 2012

Hi Need to know soon. The main ingredient in Lortab is hydrocodone, which metabolizes into hydromorphone (which itself is a hydrogenated ketone derivative of morphine) and can transform in small amounts of codeine and dihydrocodeine. Perhaps it’s the Lortab that appears on the screen?

Either way…just present the Lortab prescription as it appears on the bottle. It’s better to keep everything legitimate than to “extend” the truth and possibly be caught up in a lie (fraud).

2:49 pm July 5th, 2012

I took one hydrocodone for back pain on Wednesday night. I have an employment drug test on Friday. Will this one pill make me test positive?

5:26 pm July 6th, 2012

Hi MissyK. Single use, one time dosing of hydrocodone can be detected in urine for at least a couple of days after ingestion. However, most 5 or 10 panel drug screens do not screen for hydrocodone. Instead, hydrocodone requires an “extended opioids” drug screen for detection. Do you know what kind of test was used?

5:39 pm July 7th, 2012

Hi, new to post and have seen lots of good questions with even better straight answers. Here’s my dilemma, I have been taking hydrocodone 7.5’s 4 times a day for over 3 years. (short leg syndrome, chronic hip and low back pain, degenerative muscle disease due to fall) On Friday my dr gave me a random urinalysis. After he read it came into room and told me I tested negative for for the vicoden. I had been out of my meds for two days. Took last dose on Wednesday morning. Why would I come back negative? He wouldn’t refill my full prescription gave me a 7 day supply and said he would send to another testing lab as he uses simple inexpensive tests. I was wondering what could cause me to test negative and will the outside lab confirm use? I’m a nervous wreck. I don’t abuse, misuse or get rid of my meds in any form. I’m just mortified that I may be dropped from my Dr. If anyone has had this happen and what was the reason please respond. Thank you and sorry for long post.

5:43 pm July 7th, 2012

also dr told me that even taking one two days before still would have showed up.

5:55 pm July 9th, 2012

Hello Maria. Hmmm it’s possible that the levels of hydrocodone dropped enough not to be detected between Wednesday and Friday morning. However, if you think that your script is in jeopardy, perhaps you can request a hair sample analysis? This will show your use OVER TIME instead of at a POINT IN TIME. And given you’ve tested normally over 3 years, I wonder why the doctor thinks that there is something wrong NOW?

12:24 am July 10th, 2012

I took half of a 10 mg Vicodin at noon on Wednesday and the other half at around 8 or 9. I took a 10 panel preemployment drug test Friday at around 11:45 am or noon. I never take pills or any drugs at that. I work a very physical job and sweated alot on Thursday. So my question is with this being a one time thing should I be OK as far as passing the drug test? I’ve been super stressed. And it was a drug test sent to a lab.

1:21 am July 10th, 2012

Hi Bassmanjr5. It’s unlikely that the Vicodin will be detected in a 10 panel drug screen. Not because it CANNOT be detected, but because 10 panels do not normally include “extended opioids” within the test themselves. So wile you may have been within the detection period for hydrocodone showing up on a drug screen, the test itself most likely does not include hydrocodone…but check with the HR department or the lab itself for more information.

9:56 pm July 10th, 2012

Can (1) one 7.5 Vicodin be detected on a Urinalysis 41 hrs later? I excercise daily, and sweat a lot, water is constantly being drank.

10:03 pm July 10th, 2012

As well as the day prior and morning of test

12:08 am July 13th, 2012

Hi Ro. If the urinalysis screens for “extended opioids”, it is theoretically possible that the hydrocodone be detected, although the result may come back “diluted specimen” because of all the water.

1:49 am July 13th, 2012

Results came back and I passed! Thank you for the response!

10:23 pm July 17th, 2012

if i smoke heroin but have a perscription for oxycodone will the lab be able to tell the difference between the too? its a five panel UA and im pretty sure it was sent to a second lab for comfirmation of the positive results. i didnt smoke for a least 25 hr before i took the test and everthing ive read online is that once herion hits the brain it turns into 6AM witch will let the lab know for sure its heroin use… however 6AM has a very short half life and it about 12to 24 hr after use also i am hoping that the medical review officer wont be able to tell the difference… also ive read that herion break down into or metabolizes into codeine and then morphine, will the oxycodone do the same or again will the medical review officer know the difference… thanks so much..

2:27 am July 19th, 2012

Hi ty. Heroin is detected using a standard screen for opiates. Oxycodone is detected using an “extended opioids” screen. It seems like the heroin use was picked up, rather than the oxycodone, because a 5 panel drug screen doesn’t usually include screening for “extended opioids” like oxycodone. Plus, oxycodone and heroin can be identified via their different metabolites. Oxycodone metabolizes into oxymorphone and noroxycodon. Heroin metabolizes into 6-acetylmorphine (6-AM) and morphine. So, a prescription won’t be able to explain the presence of the two distinct heroin metabolites 6-acetylmorphine (6-AM) and morphine. And the heroin use will most likely be detected.

5:17 pm July 19th, 2012

Took two hydrocodone 5/500’s Monday at 8 pm and the next day got a call about a job and had a screen this morning, 60 hours after last taking my pills. I do have a prescription but telling them about it would have been more trouble than it was worth. I took the DOT standard drug test but I am worried that those two pills could screw me. If they say something I will then tell them about my prescription but I am hoping that it doesnt come to that. Any input on what my odds of passing are? Any info on opioid testing on the DOT test?

1:13 am July 20th, 2012

The DOT test generally screens for 5 classes of drugs: Marijuana (THC), Cocaine, Amphetamines, PCP, and Opiates. Hydrocodone is typically picked up on an “extended opioids” panel, which is different than the opiates screen. However, even if it should be picked up, just take your prescription to the medical review officer and as long as levels are within the limits of your prescription, you will test NEGATIVE for abuse.

2:15 am July 20th, 2012

I had a small prescription for Vicodin and my husband also has one. I’ve been taking about a total of 6 to 8 vicadins a week for several weeks and currently had to take a hair drug test for a job the other day. Told the employer that I had a prescription for the vicadins. Will my test come back as me abusing vicadins?

11:52 pm July 20th, 2012

Passed. All of the worry for nothing. They tested for more than just the regular 5 panel though. They tested for things I have never seen, such as MDA-analogues, which I believe is ecstasy, phencyclidine, oxidizing, opiaates AND 6-monoacetylmorphine. I figured that the last one would be covered under opiates. Its all greek to me anyways.

12:57 am July 21st, 2012

Hi Sandy. As long as you are taking Vicodin as prescribed and are within the daily dosing limits and have not taken more than the number of pills prescribed, even if hydrocodone is detected in the hair test, a valid prescription should render the test NEGATIVE for abuse of Vicodin.

1:03 am July 25th, 2012

I understand the regular DOT FMCSA test is a 5 panel drug test. In which case I have had no issues passing the last 10 ( looking for a Job ) What is included in the 45304N DOT Drug Panel w/TS ? The Employee handbook stated they tested for ( thc , coc , pcp , opi , amp, barbiturates , alcohol ). Just wondering what exactly the 45304N DOT Drug Panel w/TS test for. The test is giving through Quest Diagnostics , c/o Labworks USA. Have this pre employment test tomorrow ! Please advise …. Dont want to get in a bad situation.

6:09 pm July 25th, 2012

Hi Curious. This is probably too late to help you much. Diagnostic labs which run drug screens have their own internal system for coding drug tests. So “45304N DOT Drug Panel w/TS test” is a Quest Diagnostics test…and the best way to BE SURE you know what will be included is to call Quest and ask them directly. I’ve done this in the past, and you speak with a lab technician who can answer all your questions.

5:11 pm July 26th, 2012

Can anyone tell me the opiate drug screen
Kits you buy online– i assume they dont discriminate
Against what the opioid or opiate is correct?


A SAMHSA 5 test will discriminate and will only
Show morphine or codeine correct??

The reason i ask is because when i know someone who is taking prescribed Hydrocodone takes a Home test– it shows positive on
The home opiate test screen.

I assume once this sample is placed under the
Scrutiny of the SAMHSA 5– this positive screen for
Hydrocodone will turn to be a negative under this test
Because the SAMHSA 5 doesnt test for hydrocodone?

Do i have this correct????

Curious- ASAP
2:24 am July 30th, 2012

Not too late yet… I have managed to stall out a few days due to scheduling . I thought about doing just that as I believe it is just a 5 panel DOT from what little I could pull of of the web. I plan on calling monday and going in on friday. I will post updated info when I know.

12:13 am July 31st, 2012

Hi Curious George.

Hmmm. That’s an interesting one. In theory, a SAMHSA 5 will not detect hydrocodone, because you need an “Extended Opiates” screen to detect anything other than heroin, morphine or codeine on a SAMHSA 5 Opiate Screen.

However, the home test is showing positive…I’d suggest that your friend contact the manufacturer of the home drug kit and request information on the EXACT metabolites the home kit tests for…it could be possible that the “Extended Opiates” screen is included in the “Opiate Screen” for this particular test.

12:20 am July 31st, 2012

So I called the toxicologist today …. the 45304N W/TS is a DOT 5 panel test with an additional panel added for “Tampering” ” Tampering Screen ” to make sure the employee is not tampering with the urine sample. ( clean out product , ect.. )

12:22 am August 17th, 2012

Hello….i have a valid script for 7.5mg
hydrocodone every 6 hours. i took
a single dose of 60mg 19 hours before
a pre-emloyment urine drug screen. will
my misuse cause me to fail based on
levels. i am very scared. an accurate quick
answer would b a god send. thank u

8:18 pm August 18th, 2012

Hi jw. Many pre-employment drug screens are not accurate enough to detect opioids like hydrocodone. They are looking for opiates like codeine or heroin. In order for a drug screen to detect hydrocodone, the employer needs to request a 10 or 11 panel screen, which includes an “extended opioids” drug screen. For now, your misuse of hydrocodone will most likely go undetected.

8:36 pm August 23rd, 2012

I took 1 vicodin 10/500 and 1 flexiril on Wed. the 22. My drug test is next Tues. the 28. Will these show up on my test? The flexeril was only 10 mg. Not sure if I will be getting a blood or urine test or both.

8:21 pm August 24th, 2012

Hello Ava. One time, isolated use of Vicodin will probably not show up on a drug screen 6 days later. Plus, most routine drug screens do not test for hydrocodone. Special “extended opioid/opiate” drug tests are required to pick up hydrocodone in the urine. Additionally, a DOT 5 panel drug screen will not test for Flexeril or other muscle relaxants. But if you have a valid prescription for either of these, taken them along with you to the drug testing facility. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

9:50 pm September 4th, 2012

My Dr.prescribed Tussionex Pennkinetic, will this show up as hydrocodone on a drug test? We get drug tested often at work.

10:51 am September 5th, 2012

Hi Tim. Yes, the hydrocodone in Tussionex Pennkinetic can show as an opioid in a drug screen that includes “Extended Opioids”…however, you have a prescription. So, if you should ever take a drug screen while on this medication, simply bring the prescription along with you. Any “positive” test results will be reported NEGATIVE so long as you are taking Tussionex as prescribed.

4:03 pm September 27th, 2012

Question – Will Heroin show up differently on a hair follicle test then oxy, or hydrocodone? If they dont choose to do the extended test for opiates and opiates show up on the regular 5 dot test, will they know that is heroin?

1:26 pm October 2nd, 2012

Hi, I took a drug test at my work.. what can the MRO look at when determining my soon to be positive result? Can they look at how often you are prescribed your pills? Or do you just bring them in your most recent bottle and you don’t have to let them know anything else. I get 105 every two weeks, but would prefer to not give any more info. to the mro because it is my privacy rights. If they just have that one bottle for your recent prescription, is that enought for them? Can they look into any drug databases and get more info. about your prescriptioin?

1:51 pm October 3rd, 2012

Hi Lisa. I’m not sure about the privacy issues or about how medical information is shared in databases. I do know that you can present your Rx bottle to an MRO and, if needed, you may need to present medical records or additional information. I’d suggest you stick with showing your prescription, and waiting to present additional information for when it is required.

4:37 am October 5th, 2012

Hi, i have a question that needs immediate response…My friend took 8 yes 8 Lortab 10 between 4 and 5 o’clock (not all at one time), she has been on Lortab for several years now, so her body is immune to the drug, she says she can hardly even tell that shes taken them after about 2 hours, well she went through a roadblock and the office there found her medicine bottle and saw that she was prescribed 20 that same day and there were 12 left. This was around 8:30pm, 4 1/2 hours later..they took her in and gave her a urine test and mailed it off to the state. Will it come back as negative or positive and will the nanograms be high, or since shes been taking them for so long and her body is immune to this drug do you think she will pass. She is freaking out about it because they say that if it comes back positive they could charge her with DUI/narcotic ??

let me refresh what im asking…she took 8 between 4-5 oclock and had the urine test around 8:40 the same day

12:30 pm October 5th, 2012

Hi worried. Thanks for your question. Yes, a laboratory based urine analysis will determine whether or not your friend has been taking hydrocodone within prescribed limits. Your friend needs to present the prescription to the Medical Review Officer, and then the MRO will make a judgment call about whether or not she meets cutoff levels for anticipated amounts of hydrocodone in her system. If she’s over and tests positive for abuse of hydrocodone, the legal ramifications can follow.

5:10 pm October 5th, 2012

If I took two 5/500 hydrocodone’s last Wednesday the 26th, would they show up on a urine test the next Thursday the 4rth? I had been prescribed it for a surgery I went through a couple months before and had two extra. I am a young male about 175 lbs.

5:21 pm October 5th, 2012

Also, the test was a 26208N type urine test.

Hi. I’m 27 female about 200 lbs Caucasian. Am ordered to do a hair follicle test for CPS… Have a very colored past… The test is 10/11/12 the last time I used was around mid August and before than months and months the only reason I did was because I had a killer toothache.. I took 1 Vicodin the bottle read with actametaphine 500/5mg. I got some detox shampoo this test decides my fate… I don’t wanna lose my babies!!!!! I am a prescribed methadone client…. Any advice for me????? HELP will I meet the cutoff

10:52 pm October 10th, 2012

I was prescribed loratab and tested had a positive drug screen. I was informed that i tested positive for something that had ingredients of endocent, endodan, oxycontn,oxynorm, roxicet, roxicodone. Is that same as loratab.

1:12 pm October 15th, 2012

Hello Mario. The main ingredient in Lortab is hydrocodone. Hydrocodone metabolizes into hydromorphone, which then undergo phase 2 glucuronidation. These other medications that you name seem to be related to oxycodone, a relative of hydrocodone. To clear up the confusion, provide your Lortab prescription to the Medical Review Officer (MRO) at the drug testing facility and your drug screen SHOULD be judged as NEGATIVE for abuse.

7:41 pm October 17th, 2012

I have been taking Hydrocodone from my Doctor for about 3 years, 4 x 7.5/650. And he sent me for normal blood work ,cbc,cmp ,and checked a box to check for Hydrocodone at labcorp’s, all blood no urine taken
Blood work has not been done for a year and said he wanted to checked my Hydrocodone levels. So he checked for Hydrocodone and Metobites?

In 4 years never asked for a increase, because I figure why if what I am taking is working, why bother. Anyway my question seeing that I have now have 2 artificial legs the need to be replaced, I was in alot of pain over the week end my sister gave some of hers oxycodone to take over this weekend, about 80mg for 2 days. Would they be able to detect the oxycodone since he is only testing only to see if my levels of hydrocodone are right. I He is treating me for Fibro, arthritis knees, hands, now MS, soft tissue damage and several herniated disks.

9:36 am October 18th, 2012

Hello Anthony. Hydrocodone and oxycodone are technically in the same class of medications called “extended opioids” but do metabolize into different metabolites. Hydrocodone metabolizes into hydromorphone. Oxycodone metabolizes into oxymorphone. I don’t know how specific your doctor’s office test is…but theoretically a targeted “extended opioids” test may be able to distinguish between the two. Can you fully disclose with your doctor this weekend’s use to CYA?

3:02 pm October 23rd, 2012

Hello, I just took a drug test for probation and tested positive for Vicodin (Opiates) that I do have a valid percsription for and they sent it to the lab because its a condition of my probation to randomly check it through the lab just to make sure I’m not taking taking more than I should be….which Im not, but yesterday I did take a couple Norcos that my friend gave to me and I am wondering if anyone can pleasse tell me if the lab is going to detect the differece, or if they are the same medications? I’ve heard that they are pretty much identical drugs aside from the amount of Tylenol, and that the lab will just show up as I’m taking my Vicodin and never know I took Norco becasue they’re the same thing. Can someone please tell me if this is true and I if should be okay, or am I gonna be screwed?? Thanks so much for any help with this question!

7:57 am October 24th, 2012

Hi Shannon. Both Norco and Vicodin are combinations of acetaminophen and hydrocodone. If you’ve taken the Norco on top of the Vicodin, the test can detect the difference in metabolites and register that you’ve been taking more than prescribed. If you’ve taken Norco INSTEAD of Vicodin, what are the difference in doses? In other words, what’s the Vicodin dosage strength for hydrocodone versus the Norco strength for hydrocodone? Check the labels.

3:24 pm November 5th, 2012

If I take a quarter of a lortab (7.5 mg) the day before a drug test, how long will it stay in system and will this show up? test is at 10:30am

12:00 pm November 6th, 2012

Hi Makayla. It really depends on the type of drug test. Do you know what the drug test will be screening for? What kind is it? Urine based? Blood?

1:31 pm November 6th, 2012

It is urine test. They test at the doctors office and then send it to a lab for confirmation. I just learned of this yesterday. They do (i think she said 3 test that test automatically for weed, opitoes and another) after that they send it to lab!

1:33 pm November 13th, 2012

Hi Makayla. Hydrocodone doesn’t metabolize the same way that heroin and morphine do, and is not included in the class of drugs called “opiates”. Instead, hydrocodone requires a sub-set, specific test for “Extended Opioids”.

While hydrocodone can be detected a day after use, it does require this specific test. So because most 3-panel drug tests are not specific enough, use will most likely go undetected.

1:59 pm November 16th, 2012

Would one 50 mg Nucynta, taken almost 24 hours before testing show up on a standard 10 panel pre-employment urine test?

2:38 am December 4th, 2012

My doctor took a urine test last month to check if a was taking my meds correctly. I take Klonopin, Protonix, Allopurinal and Crestor. Well, my test results showed marijuana in my system. My doctor will not be calling in my prescription until I have a “clean” urine. It’s been 30 days, and I think the pot will not show. However, I was in the hospital 2 weeks ago and was prescribed oxycodone. I took about 4 of these 4 days prior to my next scheduled urine test. Then I took 2 7.5 MG hydrocodones 3 days prior to this scheduled test. Do you think that this test would show these painkillers, and would the test differentiate between the 2 pills and report that I had both? Or would you think it would just report as an opiate?

5:56 pm December 5th, 2012

I am prescribed norco 10/325 for chronic back pain by my doctor but i am randomly drug tested for work in which it is a driving job. Now i only take one maybe two pills at night to help me sleep but I heard that hydrocodone tests positive as an opiate. What happens if i test positive, do i get called for a second urine or do they just retest that one, and will they ask me for the script and doctors name. When I give the urine the nurse taking it never takes down my info for the medicine cuz she says they will call me. what happens next

7:06 pm December 6th, 2012

I took 60mg of hydrocodone 3 days ago and have a pre-employment drug screening tomorrow. I’m pretty sure it will be out of my system, however if it is not, I have a RX history from the pharmacy showing I have had a valid RX for hydrocodone within the past year. Should I take this to my drug screen and go ahead and tell the tester? I was just wondering if I gave them this paperwork if any was found it would be considered legit usage?

9:13 pm December 9th, 2012

I was perscribed 5-325 mg OXYCOD/ACET (percocet) 10 months ago. Late Friday night/early Saturday, I awoke having a panic attack. After 4 hours of no relief, I broke down and took 1 of my old percocets. Wednesday, afternoon i had a pop UA, which is common in my line of work. Approximately 106 hrs had passed since I took that 1 pill. Do you think I passed? I’m freaking out!

9:54 pm December 12th, 2012

hydrocodone shows up as what on a ua?

1:51 am December 13th, 2012

I am prescribed Norco 10/325 4 times a day. I have not taken any in a week. I have a urine test tomorrow to make sure I have been taking 4 of them a day like I am supposed to. I just took 5 Norco 7.5/500 and test is in 12 hours. Will my urine test show my levels close enough to what it should be to not raise any flags?? Please respond as soon as you can. I don’t want to get cut off of my meds but needed more than usual this month. Thank You.

7:20 pm December 17th, 2012

Is a blood test result of Hydrocodone 150 ng/ml high? Diazepam 610 ng/ml? These are both taken by prescription and I always follow the directions, but these numbers seem high to me. I appreciate your help! Thank You!

7:45 am December 18th, 2012

HI. If I have a prescription for 10 mg norco, taking it five times a day, what would be the average ng/ml range in a 10 panel drug screen if taken as prescribed which would mean at least 5, 10 mg norco taken within 24 hours of the drug screen? I just see a lot of people asking this question and no real answers.

10:23 pm December 18th, 2012

Hi. I am a long term pain patient with a contract. I am prescribed Kadian (morphine), MSIR as a rescue dose, Baclofen and Lyrica. The day prior to my last appointment I was having tremendous break through pain which the MSIR wasn’t relieving. In desperation I took one half or one (don’t remember for sure which, but not more than that) of my husband’s hydrocodone/acetaminophen 5-325 tabs. Ironically I have never done this before, but he suggested it might help, so I took it. As Karma would have it, the next day the Dr. required a urine test. My contract specifies that I can be discharged for using medications not prescribed to me. Do you know if the Hydrocodone will show up on the urine test? If so I will probably be discharged for breaking our agreement. Ironically I have been thinking about tapering off the pain meds since they don’t seem to be working well, (and I am fed up with the increasing harassment toward pain docs from the DEA) but had hoped to do it over a period of months without withdrawals.

If I am discharged the contract specifies that I will be given a 30 day supply of meds and no further consultation. If the urine test is problematic, is it possible to taper off these meds without major withdrawals within a 30 day period, and if so, any advice or leads on how to do it?

8:16 am December 22nd, 2012

I only used hydrocodone 7.5 one time for the first time in my life on a Saturday morning about 10am because I had knee pain. I am 45 years old, 185lbs. I had a drug test taken for a job at 5:30 pm. will it still be in my system at 5:30?

1:29 pm December 26th, 2012

hi all. i was wondering if anyone knows of.a chart that would show what levels of hydrocodone should be acceptable for my dosage. i take 4norco 10/325 every day but my urine test shows 11000+ ng/ml and this wench exwife of my hubby is trying to make it seem like i’m abusing tho i’m not, i have scripts. the hair came in with 4500 pg which was consistent with my medium daily use. i need it for my fibro i been suffering over a year but i really want to see if there is a chart around like the hair dose response listing possible results and interpretations for urine, esp hydros

Hey I need a answer ASAP PLEASE…. Ok Sunday at 4pm I took 2 ,10mg hydrocodone pills then at 5pm (yes same day) I took 2 more 10mg’s and then at 10 pm I took 20 mg of hydrocone. Total of 60 mg. which is first time in months I’ve taken any…. By 10pm Sunday same day the first 40mg should be at 20mg according to the half life… Make a long story short on Wednesday at 4pm I had a drug test for probation. SO ….66 hours under my belt from last dose at 10pm Sunday night…. Will I pass. I even added the bioavailability at 95 % into the equation and should have aprx 290ng in my system after 17 half life’s. IF I did the math right… please respond soon I have court in 2 more days!!!!

I have hydrocdene prescription that is a few years old. I was in an accident and get occassional neck pain and take them for a few days and then not again for a few weeks or even months. When is a prescription considered not valid for a drug test purpose?

2:13 pm January 10th, 2013

Hi DI. Most Medical Review Officers make a personal judgment call on older prescriptions. Some may accept hydrocodone prescriptions that are 2-3 years old. Some may accept only up to 6 months. There is no general agreed upon protocol for the shelf life of a prescription. Id’ suggest that you get it updated from your doctor just to cover yourself.

8:38 pm January 10th, 2013

I took half of a 7.5 loritab about 12:30 yesterday and took a oral fluid 10 panel at about 2:00 today… it going to show up? Yesterday was the first pill I’ve taken in months!

2:05 am January 11th, 2013

Is a blood test result of Hydrocodone 150 ng/ml high? Diazepam 610 ng/ml? These are both taken by prescription and I always follow the directions, but these numbers seem high to me. I appreciate your help! Thank You! still waiting for reply. thanks

10:40 am January 14th, 2013

Hi Jane. I’d suggest that you ask this question of your pharmacist or the Medical Review Officer who tested you. Therapeutic ranges for drugs can vary by person, so even if you’re a little above the “norms”, ask for an explanation from the experts!

10:47 am January 14th, 2013

I was still wondering about the acceptable levels for someone with a script for hydrocodone at 10mg four times a day in a urine test. After reading up on this I am seeing that hydrocodone breaks down into hydromorphone and it can be possible that the ng/ml count can actually be adding together these metabolites along with the parent drug. Is this true? Would there be any resources for this information since I am seeing others ask about this?

8:13 pm January 14th, 2013

I have to take a preemployment follicle test tomorrow and I can’t find information on prescription drugs. I have stage 3 kidney failure basically from a combination of having a hereditary kidney disease and then taking Motrin for 6 months after and accident for chronic neck pain. When they found the kidney failure they started prescribing me vicodin that I take prn mostly at night for discomfort. I am scared they will rescind the offer because I will of course test positive for vicodin. I am sure I will not sleep tonight I am on 13 other meds for the kidney disorder and can not take any over the counter drugs for pain relief. What will they do? Ask me for my prescription on a letter from my doctor? I am freaking out I want to go back to work. Thank you

4:43 am January 15th, 2013

I’ve had 15 oxycodones 5mg from november 23rd to december 11th that was leftover from my wisdom teeth removal that was in september where they prescribed me 30 and then another 20 when I went back for pain but only used 5 of them and just used these for pain in my knee while I was on vacation, so I have a hair test at the end of january or early february, now my hair is only a half an inch long which it always is and my hair grows fast I get it cut every 4 weeks, so will my hair even go back to december or will they try to grab a body hair?

12:03 pm January 21st, 2013

we were having shortages at work so all the nurses had to get randoms with ext opi. I take lor tab occasionally and my urine came back neg for hydrocodone and positive for hydormorphone. My script is less than a year old. Can this be explained because if not Im gonna have the shortage pinned on me along with diversion and felonies loss of my license ext. How is this possible?

4:36 pm January 30th, 2013

Well my husbands drug screen came back this morning and thanks to gad it was clear with no trace of the medication. So I can tell you that some average people can come up clean after 48 hours from last use. In saying that I will say he only took one . He doesn’t take anything unless he has to due to kidney stones or his back hurting. So I’d say he might take ten pills a month if that. He doesn’t drink a lot of water. He has a office job and doesn’t exercise. That’s why I was so worry about it all. Thanks so much for you information. Your words gave me hope that I had not screwed up his/our life. Thanks so much …

8:41 pm January 30th, 2013

i got a prescription for 5mg hydrocodone back in december. i have to take a hair follicle test in May. when i fail my test can i say its because of that perscription.. (ive been taking percocets for the last couple months but they were unperscrib to me)

5:14 pm February 1st, 2013

i only take hydrocodone 10mg 4qd. My qualitive analysis came back postive for hydrocodone and hydromorphone… i see that hydrocodone can metabolize into morphone, but will my dr see that as well? i didnt know what morphone was until i googled and saw it was dilaudid.. never taken it, and from what i read is an IV push drug… help

2:37 am February 2nd, 2013

I take hydrocodone 10mg 4x day my quantative came back at 1370 ng/ml hydrocodone and 733 hydromorphone .. I have NEVER used dilaudid in my life. I have read about it being a metabolite, but I am worried my pain mgmt dr will suspect something foul. Is this common knowledge amongst drs? Is this a common occurrence ?? Help!

4:37 am February 2nd, 2013

I have a pre-employment drug screen on Monday (today is Friday) for a job that is a large step up from my current position. I have a hydrocodone (Lortab) perscription (10/500) that I am perscribed 3 per day. I have been on these meds for over 4 years ( fractured C6-7, C4-5) and they don’t really help like they used to for me. I end up eating 5 or 6 some days to control the pain, which my doctor and I are discussing changing meds. My question is this: When I take this test on Monday, will they “fail” me if the levels of Hydro in my urine are higher than the “3-per day” level they should be at? Will they be able to distinguish levels or just presence?

Elaine Stapleton
11:06 pm February 14th, 2013

Would the level of 0.15 mg per liter of urine be a high level of hydrocone? Thank you for your answer.

I just want to quit them all together .

1:10 pm February 19th, 2013

Hi Nikki. If it’s a urine analysis, the test will be able to detect 2-4 days of previous use. A hair sample analysis can indicate use over time, as well as amounts.

4:36 am February 24th, 2013

hi i was wondering if i took a drug test and i took vicoden if i can be in trouble at work even if i have a valid prescription. Sometimes I may take 3 pills a day. do you think i will be over the levels

7:00 pm March 5th, 2013

I have been on ER morphine and IR morphine for back pain that cannot be resolved for about a year now. I have been systematically lowering my dose, however, I am still using it when my back pain is unresolved by NSAIDS. I have also been off work for this year and am in the medical field. I WILL be drug tested prior to employment. Since I will not take the medication, no matter the pain, while I am at work and I have to pass the drug tests, how can I ensure that the morphine will not show in my pre-employment drug screen?

7:11 pm March 5th, 2013

I would like to also know if I had to take subscription morphine in a small amount while at work (medical field) if that would constitute a violation?

9:54 pm March 14th, 2013

I am prescribed 3-4 Norco per day. On Sunday, around 10pm I took one before going to bed. The next morning at 11am I had to give urine for a pre-employment drug screen. I did not tell the test administrator about my prescription because I didn’t think about it and thought that the test was done do see if a person has more than a “therapeutic level” of drugs in the system. Well, it’s now Thursday and my possible employer has not called me to welcome me aboard the company. I a ow really worried I failed. I aways thought that pre-employment drug tests were to see if you tested above the therapeutic level, not if there was even a small reading of the drug. So, my guess is that if I took 3-4 Norco’s te day before my test, I probably failed because it’s looking for the substance, and not what is considered acceptable levels. Looks like I lost out on a good job.

I believe my daughter is putting Lortab in Afrin Nasal Spray. I want to have it tested but don’t know where to go for help.

6:42 am March 24th, 2013

Hi Cindy. You can ask an independent pharmaceutical company to analyse the contents of the nose spray. Here is a directory list of possible labs:

Or, you can test your daughter’s urine, blood, or hair. I think that the second option would be cheaper, faster, and more efficient.

8:54 am March 24th, 2013

Thank you soooo very much! Your reply answered my question. I have another, though. How long does PO morphine (prescribed) stay in your system? How long until it will not show up on urinalysis drug testing?

2:22 am April 4th, 2013

went to pn dr today and he cussed out me and my hub states we had bunch of lortab in our system and a tiny bit of the percocet we r prescribed and we have seen our charts b 4 and see that they only test for opiates not individually and he had me crying badly and went off on me and threatened to cut our meds off if we didnt say we took lortab. said his lab is never wrong ad we did not take lortab. what do we do we think the person thats mad at us called and said bad things about us he even accused us of buying them off the street and we barely have enough disability to pay bills n care for 4 babies. plz help asap plz

4:19 pm April 8th, 2013

Hi. My Dr. prescribes me 20 mgs of Norco a day. I have been taking about 30 mgs. She wants me to do a urine test. Will she be able to tell that I am taking more than the 20 mgs?

5:26 am April 9th, 2013

Hello Jennifer. Yes, the doctor can probably detect the larger dosage of Norco in urine metabolites. Drug tests administered by prescribing doctors are usually more precise in terms of reading the amount of hydrocodone metabolites in urine than other tests.

6:06 pm April 9th, 2013

Hi, I rolled my ankle about a month ago. I dont have any medical insurance so my mom gave me some hydrocodone pain pills. which i had taken 3 or 4 pills a day for about 5 days. So i have also been completely clean from any drugs or alcohol for over 2 years until this incident with the pain meds. i just took a hair folical test for a pre employment drug screening yesterday. will this show up on my testing?

8:06 pm April 9th, 2013

please can you help. I am so confused and in tears. I take oxycodeine daily, however my test showed positive for Vicodin. But i swear on my GRAND BABIES that i never took a Vicodin. However now the pain clinic after 13 yrs thinks i am using Vicodin. I am devastated and truly truly not guilty. Is there any medical REASON THIS HAPPENED? please i am truly in awe. please help. kelly

5:57 am April 10th, 2013

Hi Kelly. I’m not totally sure. You’ll have to do some digging. Take a look at this article to learn about metabolism of opioids like hydrocodone and oxycodone, and ask questions of a toxologist or Medical Review Officer at the testing laboratory.

12:15 am April 17th, 2013

Took a couple of my wife’s 10 mg oxycodone Monday evening, because i threw my back out planting trees. I don’t have a prescription for them. I got called in for a random DOT drug test the next day (35304n nida 5 panel w/nit). Will it show up under the opiates, or am I safe? Thanks

11:59 pm April 18th, 2013

Looks like I’m safe and passed. I’ve read different opinions on the internet after people have asked if Oxycodone is tested on a DOT 5 panel random drug test, but noticed that people asking, like I just did in the previous comment, never came back to verify yay or nay. I don’t abuse the drug, and was worried sick when called me in for the random test. Also, they do not check for Benzodiazepenes either on random DOT 5 panels. A guy I work with has a legit prescription for Xanax, but was never called to verify a prescription by the MRO.

5:58 pm April 20th, 2013

I am a school bus driver. I was just prescribed hydrocodone-acetaminophine 5-325 MG for pain. We do random drug testing and have a 0 tolerance for drug use. How long after I take the prescription will it show up in a urine test?

2:58 am April 27th, 2013

I took only 2 hydro that were given to me. not a frequent user. took them about 2 and half to 3 months ago…have a hair test in about a week. think I will be able to get negative? or have a low enough threshold to pass the test? thanks

I take loratab one three times a day my last 4 urine test show positive but no metabolite. I take as prescribed but my pain doc says asked if I’m saling them because of no metabolite. They are only 5 mg. I refused the 10 mg because they make me too nauseated and dizzy when the doc wanted to give me those. S saler,would want the highest amount I would think. I was pissed because I donot abuse my meds or sale them I use to take MS Contin and it was too strong n I asked for something less nauseating and he gave me loratabs for over a yr now thank y

I have a prescription for hydrocodone acetomenophen and recently tested positive on a probation drug screen, my question is when my probation officer sends my urine to the lab will the lab be able to tell her that hydrocodone was in fact the drug in my system?

3:12 pm May 2nd, 2013

I have a hair follicle test for pre-employment next week. i took one lortab 10 sometime in the middle of january. will this show up and if it does will it matter because it’s below the cut off level?

11:33 pm May 28th, 2013

I took a 10 mg lortab on early Sunday morning and took a drug test at 11 o’clock on Tuesday. What are my chances for passing the test? The test was SAP 10-20 GC/MS

4:15 pm June 2nd, 2013

is their any thing that I can get to take that would clean my system out with in a day or two

3:36 am June 6th, 2013


So I have been sick lately and been coughing nonstop pretty much to the point that things like NyQuil and over the counter products weren’t working. So my mother was nice enough to give me some of her cough meds she was prescribed…hydrocodone. I have had it before when my son was born but this was in a liquid form. I took only two doses on different nights before bed not knowing that soon I’d need to go have a drug test done for this job got. The max amount I had was 10mg 5 each night. My question is if I had a prescription for hydrocodone but from years ago would that maybe be ok if it showed up on the urine drug test. And I’ve seen a few things here about it taking maybe 1-4 days to clear the system. This job is really important to me. I’ve never in my life abused any sort of drugs before and have only ever resorted to taking anything like that if there is nothing else that will stop the pain or in this case coughing. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks M.

3:20 pm June 6th, 2013

Question: I have a prescription for Norco 10/325 , but it is just under 6 months old, is that still ok? It has not reached 6 months yet, but for the 5 panel if I tell them up front, or need to present later (for new job) is it still considered valid??

5:43 am June 11th, 2013

Hi David. Yes, 6 month old prescriptions are usually honored by Medical Review Officers as valid medications. I would personally present the Rx AFTER hydrocodone was detected, although this is a personal decision. Anything you volunteer on the paperwork can be passed on to your potential employer.

8:40 pm July 2nd, 2013

daughter accused of taking some hydrocodone two days ago. we bought a drug test kit from pharmacy and tested her. she tested neg the pink bars one was visable the other faint. the other areas this test provides all were neg except the “PCP” did not show any lines. we suspect she is taking .codone is there anyway she could trick the test ?

I am 5 foot 3 iches and weigh appox220lbs. I am scheduled for a urine test for a new job. I am concered because recently I hurt my shoulder and a family member gave me some 10 mg hydrocodone to help with the pain, I could not afford to go to the Dr. I took these pills about a week, approx. 20/25 of them. I have not took anymore since my shoulder is better about3 days ago. On that day I took 1 and the rest before that.
I am trying to figure out if I need to be worried.

9:41 pm July 15th, 2013

What’s the cutt off amount between a addict or prescribe for hydrocodone

12:32 am July 20th, 2013

I have been taking Norco 5/325 2-3 daily for approximately 5 years, some days I take none. I am applying for a new job, which requires I take a DT, as they have a zero tolerance policy. I had not taken the prescription for about 7 days when they required the test. Will I pass?

2:23 am July 20th, 2013

if i take 4 5/325 mg vicodin pills three times in one week evenly spaced out, will it show up in hair test? I weigh 235lbs. and am male.

I have neuropathy and take gabapentin 3200 mg daily and hyfrocodone 5/500 3 daily. I have been on these for several years. I usually take less than that though. I am going to have a drug test ( hair follicle). If it shows up all I have to do is show my script, correct.? This should not stop me from getting hired???? Can you advise please?

3:26 am July 28th, 2013

hey, the new drug law has been causing trouble with me getting my prescriptions for chronic pain in my lower back which i neded a spinal fusion, upon which my insurance company dropped me. my doctor is making me feel like i am either a drug addict or drug dealer (selling). on my last visit i was subjected to a drug screening along with yearly blood work. i had taken 2 5/500 hydrocodone 2 days before the screening and was told by phone that it came back negative for the drug in my system, and that the doctor will talk to me on my next visit. What can i expect and can he accuse me of selling them even though i am not (is that legal?) and can i ask for a copy of my test?

I occassionaly use norco pain in my shoulder after a bike accident. My humerous was broken and cartilage torn.I have recently taken some due to return of pain.

I am about to take a urine drug screen for an employer. The date of the prescription was Jan of 2012. Will the date of the prescription be an issue if it turns up on my test

2:27 pm August 8th, 2013

yes, I had blood work done july 31st-i have been taking tonic with quinine enough to help the leg cramps- I usually get a test from pain management two times a year-test usually cost 1100 to 1600 dollars-never failed a test in five years- test was done at lab corp-found reviews were people were getting kicked out of pain management due to faulty test at lab corp-well I took all my narcotics and the test came up neg. I don’t understand how that is possible-dr duke just as much as called me a liar-ive taken the meds every day since 1990s-could the quinine have altered the test? how could I fail a test I no the three narcotics is in my system?- then she don’t give me a referral which I have to pay 150.00 without it. then she goes and calls the specialist and trying to get me cut off-I am pain steady at this moment-I have been so bad in the past I couldn’t walk-retrained the back-legs born crippled-rib and shoulder injuries-this is crazy and costly-when you are on low income-I dress to kill but jewery dress shoes everything was old or from a swap shop-I feel like she is judging me cause I dress nice-ive never dresses like a homeless person even the year I was running from the malfia and camping in the woods. sq thanks for any input

Hi, My husband, Dan, has been on pain med and ibuprophens daily for about twenty years after suffering a post-op septic arthritis and nearly loosing his leg. His Dr. has started doing drug screens on all patients on routine pain meds. The drug screen was thru millennium. He takes lorcet/acetaminamine 7/5/650, tid and ibuprophen 800 bid-tid. His results were measured ng/ml as follows: hydrocodone 1,404, Norhydrocodone 1,429, and Hydromorphone 64. Are these results normal for around the clock use? Everything else was neg. Thanks, Faye

I am taking oxycodone 10-650, 2 pills a day, a half each time, but my drug tests are showing I am taking hydrocodone. My doctor is refusing to see me any more because of this and it is very upsetting because I know I am not taking hydrocodone. He will not listen to reason but is accusing me of taking hydrocodone. I take my medicine for pain management and not to get high. What can I do to prove to him I am innocent?

5:34 pm September 16th, 2013

my husband is taking suboxone ..he used to formerly abuse vicodin…i would like to drug test him more than once a month..i need to know
1) what drug screen is best to test for hydros
2) does suboxone show up as an opiate? (i don’t want to falsely accuse him..i know bupe is semi-synthetic and opiates only show up as morphine and its metabolites, codeine, and heroin)
3) a few addicts have told me “you can’t get high on subs”…because of the nalaxone which is the blocker…however other addicts have told me that is horse shit and you can.
4) do hydros show up as an opiate even though they are classified as an opioid? do they metabolize into morphine via the liver so therefore would show up as an opiate?

I have an RX for Hydrocodone from July 2012. I used about half the bottle at that time, and recently hurt my back so I have taken some more of them. I have a drug test for employment next week and was wondering do I even need to be concerned about the results of the test because I do have an RX and can provide the RX number and Pharmacy I got it from. If there is a concern, how long do I have to be free from taking them to be safe? I am 6’1 about 220. I drink a lot of water, and have been taking 1-2/day for about a week now.

5:53 am November 8th, 2013

I have been taking Hydroco/Apap 7.5-500 mg since 1992 for Fibromyalsia,. I recently started going to a pain clinic for my Trijeminal Neuralsia. I don’t take Hydroco/Apap for this problem., even though they have been prescribing my pain meds. I was given a urine test month before last & last month too & they didn’t find Hydroco/apap in my urine so they won’t prescribe it anymore. I take Hydroco/apap for pain as needed, sometimes I don’t need it everyday. I’ve never had this happen with any of my doctors. Can you tell me why or how this happened?

Hello Brian. If you suspect that you’ll be drug tested, extended opioid testing can detect levels in the urine for 2-4 days after last use. Get your prescription in line with your needs for pain management and seek counsel with a lawyer about how the use of prescription pain kills can affect a custody case.

August 5th I cut my finger 11 stitches prescribed 20 larotab 500mgs (my wife said smallest larotab). Nov 12th I had hair drug test and urine. After interview potential employer. I was never ask about previous meds and didn’t even think about incident because I was excited that employer was interested in me. I only took 17 of the pills and I think the last day was possibly the Aug 17th I took a pill.
The hair came from my chest.
Will the larotab show up on hair test
Thank you

I have been taking hydrocidone for five months. I went to the doctor and he did not give me any more due to getting negative results from a urine drug screen. How is this possible. I have been taking them as prescribed.

8:33 pm December 7th, 2013

I have been off norco 10/325 for 8 days. I took 30 to 60 mg per day for a couple years. I have a physical and a drug test coming up which would give me 10 full days off the drug. Will I test positive. Urine and blood samples. I do have a fast metabolism.

2:19 am December 12th, 2013

Will a medical review officer need more than your current perscription for hydrocodone if you fail a hair drug test since it can detect the drug for the past 90 days

6:09 pm January 5th, 2014

Hello, if you have taken 1 5 ml pill of hydrocodone for an ear infection without a prescription and three months later take a hair follicle drug test will the test show as fail?

I have a client that was tested by blood sample almost 2 years ago after an accident. She has just recently been charged with a DWI. Her levels of hydrocodone were .01 mg/ liter. What is the limit for intoxication purposes

1:52 am January 9th, 2014

What does 30ml in a blood test say about your under the influence level?
What does 46ml in a blood test say about your under the influence level?

will lortab show up in a standard 5 panel hair test. None taken in over a month

1:11 pm January 12th, 2014

Hi, I just recently found out my husband is. Addicted to hydrocodone and has been taking 14 pills a day and he says he’s been off them for 4 days. I want him to take a drug test because he’s lied about being clean before. Should I buy an otc drug test or can the dr look specifically for it in a UA?

5:35 am January 15th, 2014

i took 2 gulps of hydrocodone and i have a urine test in 2 days for probation will it show up?

7:55 am January 15th, 2014

Hi I’m on parole and just took a drug test. I’m prescribe hydrocodone and the day before I took 4 pills because of my clavicle pain. And today it showed up as positive for heroin . My officer said he’s going to send off to a lab. Should I be worried? Please get back at me. I never done heroin in my life. Thank you.

3:25 am January 25th, 2014

I am prescribed Lortab 10 mg. three times daily as needed. I recently took a drug screen for a new job. The preliminary test came back today and they told me I tested positive for Hydromorphone. I have never taken a Dilaudid in my entire life. Does Lortab show up on a urine drug screen as hydromorphone? Thanks!

12:58 am January 28th, 2014

Yea my question is I just took a hair test it was for a 5 panel test does hydrocodone show up because from what I understand it does not fall in the same family as opiates I have a script but I have in the past abused them I’m wondering what to expect

10:26 am January 29th, 2014

@Connie, hydrocodone is turned into hydromorphone by the liver so there should be no issues.

4:19 pm February 3rd, 2014

My pain clinic drs office called concerning my meds (lortab 10/325).and needed lab work. Last
time I took a urine test she said I didn’t have enough in my system and thought I was selling them I also take ibuprofen. I don’t know if she’s monitoring my liver /kidney levels or lesting to see if there is enough in my system. I also take vitamins and indepimide diuretic and milk thistle because I worry about overtaxing my liver. Can these have an effect on bloodwork or urine tests..

4:36 pm February 3rd, 2014

Can diuretics (indepimide) vitamins or milk thistle cause a urine or blood test result to show not enough hydrocodone 10.325 in my system? Last urine test came back that way. I also take baclofen and ibuprofen. Pain clinic called concerning needed labwork and my meds. Don’t know if they’re testing for liver toxicity or low levels of lortab. Reply appreciated.

10:23 pm February 3rd, 2014

I am prescribed 60mg Morphine Sulphate ER tabs 2x day. This past weekend, the pharmacy didn’t have my meds and they had to be ordered. My hubby has some hydrocodone 10mg at the house and I was dying in pain so I took them for a few days until my rx came in. Now, my pain doctor wants me to go for a Pain Management Profile 5 with confirmation/Urine test. Will this test show that I took the Hydros or just that I take opiods (my morphine)?? I fear that my doctor will blacklist me and I cannot live without meds. The pain is awful… PLEASE PLEASE ANSWER QUICK

1:46 pm February 18th, 2014

If in the MMT program, took two 7.5 mg of hydrocodone (that were about two years old, the date on bottle), 2 1/2 days later had urine test at methadone clinic, what is the likelihood it will show up? Haven’t had any hydrocodone for 8 months prior to this relapse.

2:11 pm February 18th, 2014

To be more specific, I’m in the methadone program, take 41 mg. daily for about 8 months now. Sat., late afternoon, I screwed up and took two 7.5 mg. hydrocodone that were a 1 1/2 to 2 years old. Tuesday morning I had a urine test at the methadone clinic for them to send away to be tested. I way 165 lbs, I have to pee fairly regularly and didn’t have a good diet during this time but did take my daily supplement of fish oil and vitamin d as well as my methadone daily. I hope to not fail the test as this was my first relapse but guilty as charged, I screwed up in a moment of weakness. Was just curious as to whether you think I’ll fail the urine test, I know you can’t give me a 100% answer.

9:05 pm February 21st, 2014

I have been taking Norco 10-325 for nearly 10 years now been with same M.D. and have quarterly urine screens. My last appoint was normal until about a week later when I called in my Norco and later received a phone call from his nurse about my drug screen asking if there was any reason my medication would not be in my system. I answered NO, I take them as directed. I was them told NOTHING showed up on my drug screen! I said it had to be a mistake and she replied it was done twice and I was now required to do monthly urine tests and if another comes up negative for my medications my doctor will drop me! OMG, how did this happen? I live with severe neck and back issues fighting for my disability. Has anyone had a urine test come up negative while taking meds daily as scheduled?

8:31 pm March 20th, 2014

I see a pain Doctor. The last time I was there I took a drug test for hydrocodone. I get a call today with them demanding me to get back to the clinic within 24 hours to take another drug test because my test showed neg. On the form last time it asked me when I last took my meds, and I was without for 2 or 3 days. I can’t just leave work and get there in 24 hours. They told me I am at risk for being discharged. I can’t believe how I am treated. Can this be legal?

I take those pills everyday. I’m searching for answers. Can someone please help me. Thank you.

I may have to drug test for a position I was offered and was wondering about how many 7.5/325 norcos are equivalent to the cut off level of 2000ng/ml? I have extreme knee pain and will take Norco for the pain after work but do not have a prescription. I do not want to lose the opportunity to get this job because of this and wanted to know what I should do to keep my levels from reading high besides discontinuing taking them, which I am doing. Thank you.

I took 2 5/325 mg of norco because of a tooth ache. My dad gave me 2. I took one in the morn and one in the eve and then I went for a drug test not even thinking about this drug. I was sent home because i failed the test. What I am asking is the urine was sent to the lab. What are they doing with this? Is this a level of how much is in the system? Do they test for levels of the drug in the urine when sent to the lab?

6:27 am May 26th, 2014

I currently take 4 hydrocodone 10/325’s a day. I was prescribed this for sometime, but I lost my job and with it my health insurance. I have still been taking the medication without a valid rx and will be taking a preemployment drug screen soon. How long will the drug stay in my system?? If I pass I will get my insurance back and no doubt be put back on the drug, legally, as I suffer from chronic back pain, but I am very worried about the urine test. I thought I was to take an oral swab test, but found out that I will take a preemployment urine test. All post employment tests are oral swab. Please advise

when they do the lab test for hydrocodone do they check for the levels or how much you were using so if I have used a little more or a little less than prescribed will they know that and if I have a prescription will that be a problem

Nancy Harmon
3:31 am June 19th, 2014

I was tested for hydrocodone at my doctors office twice, I was negative , I take these pills every day, I was told that was not possible, I asked for a different test or a blood test and was denied, I have been told I can no longer be a patient of this office. The test given was a urine test using alereia-dxa 1107 icup dx drug screen panel, a kit. I am told by a chemical lab company in town, that this test would not be reliable, it needs to be a test for synthetic, I need help, I am on Medicare and can find no doctors in my area that are taking Medicare, I have a lot of health issues, including cardiomyopathy , high blood pressure, migraines, and chronic pain, due to arthritis, any answers would be greatly appreciated.

12:19 am June 24th, 2014

This is for Shannon I read your post and the problems your having, what was the Attorney Generals response to your complaint? I am having the same issues, my Doctor sent me a letter telling me I was no longer a patient, I tested negative for my vicodin, which I take every day, I requested a different test, and was denied. So I am accused of selling my vicodin, and thrown out of the office, with no way to defend myself! This is no way right! And I am fighting back! If Doctors are going to test people they need to be doing the proper tests for the drugs they take. This is slander at best!

Hello, I have a couple of questions that I really need answers to, that are very important to me: I went into my orthopedic surgeon doctors office today for a routine check. He informed me that he saw that I had 2 or 3 refills from a different position at my primary care doctor. I just recently got insurance with my primary care doctor, again upon doing that he refilled all my prescriptions once and I just had everything refilled a couple of times. I didn’t think too much about it but one of the refills came through the same day that I called in my refill at Walgreens through my orthopedic doctor. Well, today he questioned me on it and I told him what happened. And he got very upset with me and told me he wasn’t going to refill my scripts anymore. Basically I’m taking 1-2 tablets every 4 to 6 hours of 7.5 325 and have been doing that since approximately 2005-depending on my pain level. I’ve had three knee surgeries. Now, since my doctor was upset and told me that he wants me to take a drug test to see if I’m using it and for me to attend pain management, my question to you guys is: if I take 1-2 pills around 8 o’clock at night and go in the following day and take a drug test will i chart way too much in my system from what’s allowed by the law? And if so what happens if he stops prescribing me my 15 day supply at 120 tablets?

6:09 pm June 24th, 2014

hello I left a comment yesterday its use that I’m having with hydrocodoneI was told I need to take a drug screen to see what my levels are using it we’re taking it properly my prescription is Wanda to every 4 to 6 hours of 7.5 325as of 5 p.m. Last night I had taken a total of 8 for the day for my last dose was at 5 p.m. I took 2 7.5 325 at 830 this morning if I take my second dose of two around 1230 and go in and kick in urine drug analysis will my levels be too high or too low I’m concerned because my orthopedic surgeon got upset with me because I refilled three scripts during the time he was prescribed any pain meds so he stop prescribing me so I don’t want to not have him trust me because I’m not showing them and the other scripts that I had refilled with the smaller amount that I kept around the house so I know it wasn’t a good thing to do that but I’m just being honest the pain medication works fantastic for me and it helps me get through my day with minimal pain but without it I can hardly walk I’ve had 3 knee surgeries over the course of 8 years please reply.

11:25 pm June 25th, 2014

Can a urine test tell the difference between 7.5 and 10’s?

7:54 am June 26th, 2014

Hello Ozie. We can’t consult on drug testing for hydrocodone so that your prescription will be refilled. You’ll need to be straightforward with your doctor about your use. If your scripts are cut off, you might need to seek from directly from a pain specialist, or get another orthopedic specialist to help you. If you are abusing the pain medication, earlier intervention can save you time, money, and heartache. You can seek help for drug abuse with a doctor, a psychologist, psychiatrist, or treatment center near you.

9:09 pm June 26th, 2014

I have hydrocodone 10/325 prescribed to me…i am trying to get off of them, therefore i don’t take no where near the prescribed dosage. Can a urine or blood test show that i am not following the doctors orders?? Can i take one pill just before the test to cover my butt?

5:07 pm June 29th, 2014


I’m in pain management for a serious medical problem & I take hydrocodone with other meds but it’s the one for breakthrough pain. I take it each day as the RX says & even write down when I take it so I don’t forget.

We get tested periodically I assume to make sure we are taking the meds but I got a test that came back negative yet I had taken the hydro the day before, ran out that day on time so just 28 hours had passed since my last dose for the test. How can this be? I got a warning from them which is a red flag I guess as if I was doing something wrong when I really wasn’t. It has me very stressed out since I really do take my meds the right way but am being treated as if I’m doing something wrong. Was it a faulty test or did the meds somehow get out of my system in 28 hours?


8:18 am June 30th, 2014

Hi there, I am beyond upset tonight..I’ve cried for 4 hours because I’m being accused of something i NEVER DID!!! I work in an office where we do dental surgeries. I ended up having surgery myself on Friday and had several teeth extracted. These crowns have been in my mouth and never replaced in 23+ years. Anyhow, long story short. I get a call from the main Dentist at our facility. He is basically accusing me of taking oxycontin because 2 tablets were found in our employee restroom. I have NEVER EVER TAKEN OXYCONTIN nor have I ever seen a tablet before. The day that the pills were “found by another employee, she came and showed me. I had no idea what they were, so I looked them up and then I told her what they were! She had placed them in a sterilization pouch and taped them to a door in that room. When the other Dr. came out I told him what the other gal found. He said they cannot be flushed or thrown away and need to be taken to a pharmacy for disposal which of course I understand.. So I get the phone call telling me that I am NOT to come into work tomorrow until they figure this out.. I swear on my babies I haven’t done anything wrong!!! I’m afraid of those drugs from everything I have heard about them in the news.. I DO have a prescription for Norco for chronic pain. I have been using it for years. I have NEVER EVER abused it. If anything.. I have DECREASED my dosage by half and I STILL don’t take the full prescribed amount. I’m so upset because I love my job and would NEVER do anything to jeopardize it!! I think that I am being targeted because I’m the new girl in the office. Patients have access to that back bathroom! We have a cleaning company!!! Maybe they should be looking at them?? I emailed my MD to see if there is a test that can rule out Oxycontin.. I am hoping there heart is breaking being treated like that when I haven’t done anything wrong.. I have given 100% to this job. I have worked long hours and have NEVER given them a reason to think otherwise.. Sorry to vent.. But I just don’t know what to do..:( help….

3:01 am July 2nd, 2014

Would Norco 7.5 (hydocodone) show up on a 5 panel drug test for the DOT? Will it show up under opiates? It’s just one pill as needed and maybe take 15 pills a month total.

3:07 pm July 3rd, 2014

I got a urine test from my Dr. today, I guess to see if I’ve been taking my meds. I took one the night b4 I went to see her around 9pm and my appointment was at 9am. I don’t take them much maybe 1 or 2 here an there, usually b4 I go to see my Dr. Will the urine test show that I haven’t been taking them twice a day like I’m supposed to?

4:09 pm July 3rd, 2014

hi., i take hydroco/ acetamin 10/325 about 4 times a day sometimes i go for days and do not take it the last time i went to the doctor they did the swab test i have not takeing it for about 10 days it came back i had none in my system, why i still take them why would it showed up my doctor wants me to find another doctor, i have been going to this doctor for a long time.

7:59 pm July 3rd, 2014

Huge problem here. I went to a Doctor’s appt on Tuesday. The night before I took one Soma and one Hydrocodone and told them. I took a drug test so I could get my prescriptions refilled and was called later that day and was informed that the test came back negative for the meds and that they were sending it off for further testing. I called them today (Thursday) and was informed that the new test came back the same (negative). They basically called me a liar and said I wasn’t taking the meds and nothing I could say would change their mind. Now here is the kicker! The meds that I had and WAS taking should have ran out two weeks before I went to the Doctors appt but I stretched them out so I would have enough to take until my appt. So why would I lie about taking them if I knew I hadn’t? I could have just said that I ran out! I feel so ashamed and they made me feel like I was a liar. 🙁 I have no recourse, no way to prove my honesty and that is what hurts the most. Right now I can live with the pain but I’ve lost all respect for the system. I really don’t even trust the Doctors now. If anyone can help me figure this out I would be so happy. I’ve thought of getting a hair sample drug test done and paying it out of my own pocket but I don’t know if even that would help me because when I asked them that they told me it wouldn’t change anything. Grrr this is frustrating to say the least. I’ll also add that this is happening in KY and in two years I’ve only had two scripts for pain meds and two scripts for muscle relaxers. I don’t know if this will flag me in some record that they have out there or what will happen.

Hello Ron. Blood tests show whether the levels of different substances in your blood fall within a normal range. It is possible that there is a change in the level of hydrocodone, since you’re not taking it regularly. But then, again, for many tests, results vary depending on your age, gender, race, and other factors.

Karen, if you didn’t take your meds for 10 days before having the test it’s possible that the substance left your system, so there was no medications in your body to show up.

I took 20 loritabs in 5 days. The last one was 2 pm on Saturday. Will I pass a urine test on Tuesday at 4 pm

3:16 am July 9th, 2014

I take morphine sulf. 15 mgs. Mornings, hydrocodone 7.5- 325 afternoon, and morphine 30mgs. Bedtime. Urine test comes up negative for hydrocodone, and positive for morphone dilaudid which I had never even heard of. Is this a common error and is there anything I can do about it ?

3:46 pm July 10th, 2014

I am prescribed 4 10/325 hydrocodones a day. So, 1 every 6 hours. If I took 2 at a time, could I fail a hair follicle test? Could they determine that I took 2 at the same time? Instead of my prescription of 1 every 6 hours

5:34 am July 12th, 2014

I take norcos 10 325mg. I forgot my script so a buddy gave me a 7.5 325 mg. I get urine test sent out to labs for probation could they tell the difference since there both hydrocodin

3:06 am July 14th, 2014

My boyfriend was a heroin user. So now I randomly drug test. He has an absest tooth and i gave him a Norco 5/325 (mine, from a recent Dr visit for gout). If I drug test him for only opiates, will it test positive?!

1:06 am July 16th, 2014

Hi, totally clean except for one 5mg Vicodin about 3 weeks ago. Would this show up on a hair test? Also was perscribed vicodin about year and a half ago. No longer have bottle or papers, could I retrieve proof of this prescription from the pharmacy and report it to the lab to be safe? Or do labs not consider old prescriptions valid?

7:39 pm July 25th, 2014

My bf had got hurt. at work he took 3 of my hydro 5-325 with in a weeks time not at once will it show on a hair foliage test it was a month ago or so?

1:24 pm July 26th, 2014

I’ve been taking Percocet 10-325mg three times a day for about three years due to nerve damage to both feet and right leg pain, by accident my wife gave me one of her Hydrocodone then on my next appointment I was given a drug test and the Hydrocodone showed up after 4 weeks. I only took one pill and I didn’t pass drug screen. I read about 1/2 life but that does not fit my case. How can this be as all the information I’ve been reading tells me that I should not have failed. Taking the Hydrocodone was a mistake as my percocet is right for me and helps me make it through the day. I would love to know what is going on, thanks

2:25 am July 27th, 2014

Will a hair follicle test show if I’ve taken more hydrocodone than I’m prescribed? If I was prescribed 6 10mg a day but took twice that?

10:29 pm August 8th, 2014

I have a two part question. Last night I had took one pill of Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen before bed. Following morning I was called by potential employer to go take a urine test (5 panel drug screen). My question is will the medication show up in my urine? And my second question is how much is one pill

1:55 am August 9th, 2014

I had a prescription filled on 3/23/14 for hydrocodone- homatropine syrup. Did not use all of it so I kept the rest in the refrigerator. On 8/6/14 I took a teaspoon full to help get rid of a cough. Is this prescription still valid for me to take? Had to take a drug test at work the next day which showed positive due to this. What should I expect to happen?

9:51 pm August 12th, 2014

My primary care doctor prescribed one 350/5 hydrocodone per day until I see my specialist appointment in one month for joint degeneration pain in my knees. She said it takes three days for legal intoxification to wear off and not to drive at all or I could be arrested if involved in an accident., even if I have not taken any in three days. I am 5 feet 3 inches and weigh 220 lbs. I don’t want to do anything unsafe. By the way one pill for this condition does very little to alleviate the pain.

2:01 am August 13th, 2014

Okay I took 1 and ahalf of a pill called Hydroco/ aceta 5-325 mg this was sat and this Saturday I have a urine and hair drug test, did I just screw myself out of my job? Will the test come back neg or pos on the test? Please get back to me ASAP thanks

I am 5’7 215 lbs and less than 20% body fat. Tomorrow (Friday) I may have to take a urine or mouth swab drug test for a job. Seeing over 48 hours I took less than 800mg of hydrocodone would I pass the test for Hydrocodone?

10:49 am August 15th, 2014

Hello, I have a prescription for Norco that I have been taking regularly for about 3 years without increasing the quantity or strength . However, I have a desease called cyclical vomiting syndrone and regular bouts of abdominal pain but the Norco keeps the vomiting at bay, the reason for the perminant prescription. occasionally go over my 6 @ 5 mg Norco pills a day, sometimes 8 or 9 if I have a bad episode. I always regulate out on better days taking maybe 4 so that I don’t run out before my refill. If I am regulating my pill intake as I have, should I be feeling any type of serious withdrawal should I try to go a few days without them? I went over 60 hours waiting for a glitch in my refill and was miserable, couldn’t sleep , high anxiety, but never vomited or had sever pain as I have seen others do. Just felt like crap and laid in bed and was sweating a lot. I have my pills now, but have still been sweating for three day after back on meds and feel a bit anxious still, though I am fully functional and otherwise fine. This is my first experience with any type of withdrawal, and wondering if this is normal. Also, How long do withdrawals last, was I near the end of it at just under 3 days or was about to experience the whole vomiting , abdominal pain thing at any time. Thanks!

I took a Norco about 4 weeks ago due to a bad headache. I wasn’t aware it was a Norco until after I took it. A friend had given it to me after I complained about the headache. I thought it was only a aspirin or something to that nature. I have a hair follicle drug test and want to know if I’ll pass it as I don’t use or abuse prescription drugs?

3:32 am August 28th, 2014

on a 5 panel drug test, will it show up that you failed for opiates or will it say the exact opiate like perocet or whatever the opiate is in your system ???

1:43 pm September 2nd, 2014

I’m prescribed Lortab 10 mg. My doctor abruptly cut my RX from 120 pills to 60 pills after I had a negative test (which she sent for conformation). I’ve gone through this RX too fast. I retook the test the next month. I took a pill at 2am and another at 6am and the test still showed negative. Now I’ve saved Sox pills. Is this enough to pass my test if I take as prescribed (1 am and 1 pm)?

4:38 pm September 2nd, 2014

I was recently in a car accident I took 2 5/325 narcos before I went to bed the night before because I was having pain in my ankle and couldn’t sleep I took them around 9pm I was in a car accident around 10:30am the next mourning and I was required to do urine and blood testing could the levels in my test be enough to possibly get a DUI ? I very rarely take narcos and these were about 2yrs old I had them left over from a previous injury

I took 1/2 of Hydrocodone over weekend and have to give hair test will it show up?

2:00 am September 6th, 2014

I am getting a hair follicle drug test on 9/24. I have taken percocet, maybe a max of 10 pills, the 10/325 mg strength, and I may have taken all of those over the course of 3 days around Mid-July. Do you believe that this will show up in my hair on a hair follicle test that will be done on 9/24/14?? I also happened to have a shot of Dilaudid 1mg in the ER (ordered by an MD)…but assuming i took percocet, the levels of opiate will not be consistent with my story of only having a shot of dilaudid (they will suspect something more)…Please give me your opinion on this…Another issue: Marijuana. Ever since June 20th, I have been clean from pot up until this point. Please give me your opinion.

I was prescribed hydrocodone 7.5 in July. That was stopped and now I was prescribed Norco 5. I ran out of the Norco but had 5-6 hydrocodone 7.5’s saved. I took the 7.5 til my Rx for the narco was prescribed but I threw the Rx bottle away by mistake. I have a physical for a job tomorrow. I don’t know if a hair sample will be required but a urine sample is. Will both drugs show on the results in a negative way?

3:41 pm September 20th, 2014

I have been prescribed Hydrocodone for about 5 years. I have sevear arthritis in my shoulder with several tears in the tissue & I have slight curviture of the spine. Both are very painful.
My Dr ordered blood work. I did the labwork. A few days later, I received a certified letter from my Dr stating that my labs showed 650 in the Hydrocodone. There was no explanation. She now refuses to prescribe Hydrocodone, Soma, Temazapam or Clonazapam. What does 650 indicate?
Thank you…

Hello, my boyfriend has to take random UAs because of an order in his divorce. He has a Vicodin RX but his ex accused him of abusing it. He took the test about four or five days later than it was ordered and the result was still over 2600 ng/ml. He drinks every day too and the UA showed that. Is 2600 ng/ml as high as it sounds when the test cut off was just 100 ng/ml? I’m worried that maybe his ex isn’t making this all up like he told me.

7:12 am October 31st, 2014

I take 7.5 hydrocodone everyday.Usally 2-3 or about 90 a month..I drink about 6-8 16oz bottles of water a day, eat fresh cranberries daily and also drink cranberry juice daily due to repeated uti’s..
I was notified by my primary care physician this week that I have failed 2 drug test, that I had no idea had been taken.Which is fine because I have nothing to hide.Well they both came back negative for hydrocodone.I can’t understand why unless it is due to the fact I urinate probably 20-30 times daily and about 6-8 times through the night.
Please help me understand how this could happen when I’m ingesting 3 7.5’s daily!!

11:17 pm November 5th, 2014

I have a close friend who suffers from chronic pain and who receives a regular prescription for hydrocodone. She takes it daily as prescribed. However, when given a urine test, it did not show a positive finding. This of course suggested that she was not taking the drug but perhaps selling it. Is there a more reliable test she can request to verify her regular and proper usage of the drug?

3:53 am November 6th, 2014

hi. i had a marijuana urine test taken and i came back dirty and they said that i had morphine in me. i also take hydrocodone for pain in my should , would it come back saying that its morphine?????

If I took 2 Vicodin 10mg right now how long (time wise)”would it take to show positive on a urine test. So say I took 2 Vicodin 10mg at 10 am and at 10:17 am took a urine drug test would it show positive for the Vicodin in that short amount of time?

5:27 am November 12th, 2014

With the classification changes made recently to hydrocodone my dr is asking for drug screenings (feeling a bit insulted about it) for hydrocodone. In addition to norco (1-qid), I take nucynta (1-qid). Both of which he has prescribed. I’m very careful to only take what is prescribed but am worried. Could the combo possibly skew the results? They’re both from the opoide (?) family, correct? Or can a screening detect the differences between the two?
Thank you for your help

2:14 am November 15th, 2014

I get oxycodon for my back and i took a drug test for work and oxy came back positive and so did opiates but why opiates i dont do that, can you please contact me asap

My question is there anything I can do to lower the amount in my system? I have to take a Urinalysis today and I have a lot to lose if the levels come back to high, I’m not a drug addict, I’m a mom an DCF is watching my every move and this isn’t something I do cause my family means everything to me. To be honest I just couldn’t take the pain anymore. So I’m begging you, is there anything I can do to lower my levels before I go take my drug test? I’m asking and begging an my kids to please let me know if there is anything I can do? Please get back with me ASAP cause I have to go today to take the test.
Thank You

12:41 pm November 26th, 2014

Hi Leonia. If you’ve been taking the large amount every day, and need to take a test the very same day; I’m afraid there is no way to lower the levels of metabolites that will show up on the screening. Best of luck!

7:41 am November 27th, 2014

Please get back to me ASAP. Since early 2013 I’ve been prescribed hydrocodone for a couple different reasons but mainly the pain in my back. Being pregnant with my son was a pretty hard time especially since 7 months I cracked something in my back. I was sent to get an evaluation done by a physical therapist and after some physical tests she said something looked funny with my back and wanted to do x rays. However I was pregnant so she couldn’t and wanted me to come back after I had my son. I have yet to see a specialist for my back or get insurance so I’ve been In and out of the same hospital for the past year (even longer) and been prescribed hydrocodone several times. Anyways my probation officer wants to do a hair follicle test and I told her I will have high levels because I’ve takin it regularly for a long time so I’m just wondering if even though I’m prescribed it if they can prove I’m abusing it? I never take double my dose but I have taken another dose 4 hours later if not helping. 10mg pills. I’m in pain 2-3 time a week rarely 4-5. Can I get in trouble although I show hospital paperwork documenting my stays ? Can it prove “abuse” I am not addicted but want to know more.

Does nycntra show up as the same in a urine drug screen?

2:46 am November 29th, 2014

Does nycntra show up as the same in a urine drug screen as hydro ones. The nycyntra, I can not function on so a friend gave me some 10 mg hydrocodones. I have severe pain, I’ve had back surgery & cancer & having neck survey in Jan. My pain is so bad at times that I can not even function but I live alone & have to take care of myself. I will have to take a drug test when I go back to the doc, just wondering if the two meds will show up as the same opiate? I’m gonna ask for something different, I just don’t want him to think bad of me.

Hello, my hubby has been going to a pain clinic. He currently takes oxycodone & opena, however today & for the past four months during the routine pee test he keeps coming up clean. The pain clinic is now refusing to see him. He’s on several heart medications as well as cholesterol meds.. Would that make it show up negative? Also he takes large doses of niaspan for his heart. Please help for the pain clinic is ready to cut my hubby off who is legitamitally taking these meds (oxy & opena) but the pain clinic doesn’t believe him since he keeps tearing negative.

Is it possible for vicodin, Norco, or Percocet not come out in hair drug test before 90 days? I took 4 pills for the month of December. And 3 for month of November. Also, if I take hair drug test in exactly 90 days from now, could meds still be present in drug test?

Hi im a 37 year old female, Im currently taking hydrocodone 10-325 4x a day. Or rare occasions i take just two or maybe 5. But i take them everyday. I was tested for drugs on a swab test and came negative results for opioid. Now i have to convince doctors that i am taking my medication. Ihave not miss one day, and i do remember the day i tested negative i had taken two pills the day prior. i keep reading how these tests go back a few days. But in my case is only detecting a few hours back. or two pills is not enough to show in my system. I remeber one doctor mentioning i might be a genotype metabolizer but i always though it was the test that were lying. I double check the paper work results of my test i dont believe there is a mistake with the test results. Im starting to think its me. I do drink a lot of water daily since i tent to get UTI. dont drink alcohol or do other recreational drugs but i do smoke cigarettes. please help me understand my false negative test results. thank you Jme

Hi addition blog. So I have a 7 panal drug test for probation on Wednesday. It is Monday and I used heron today like an idiot. I have used a couple times this past week. I know I will fail but I was wondering if I take some vicoden will they be able to tell the difference because I have a script for vicoden.

10:53 am January 13th, 2015

Can oral drug test tell the diffrence between vicoden and herion or are they both under opiates

4:39 pm January 13th, 2015

Hi Cali. Yes. A 7 panel urine test can detect the difference between drugs. Urine tests detect metabolites, not the drug itself and it doesn’t just test positive or negative. Every opiate has its own unique metabolite. These kinds of drug tests can also detect if you have been trying to flush of detox your body from substances.

5:10 pm January 13th, 2015

Can a dr tell the difference between vicoprofren7.5 mg and a norco 5 or 10 mg in a 15 panel urin test?

8:04 pm January 14th, 2015

My boyfriend tested positive for oxycodone, but has an Rx from the dr. He is currently on parole in NYS, can they still violate him since he has an Rx. He has not abused it, and does take it as it is prescribed, but i am worried that they wont care how legitimet it is or not.

6:22 am January 16th, 2015

6:20 am February 9th, 2015

My husband fell off a ladder today and he was hurting pretty bad so I gave him 2 10/300 loritabs now he thinks he might have a fracture can they drug test him at the hospital?

11:04 am February 9th, 2015

Hi Katn. Well, they can. But, I don’t believe they will. Maybe they’ll just do a routine blood work check…drug tests are ordered specifically.

7:40 pm February 19th, 2015

I went to pick up a script for 7.5/325 hydrocodone yesterday and the Dr. office sprung a drug test on me. I’m 59 and only get 30 tabs a month. I take one at night for knee and back pain. What exactly are they looking for? They told me the new federal law mandates anyone getting this drug must submit to drug screening. I don’t do illegal drugs and I don’t think one pill per night makes me a drug addict? Not to mention the DS cost $300.00. So much for my budget! Please enlighten me.

2:34 am February 20th, 2015

I only taking 2 hydrocodone, and in the same day I was offered a job I have a physciption, but I don’t take the pills, and I decided to take two.I was hired today and I know eventually I will have to take a urine test can I clean my system out with something. Thank you

1:56 pm February 20th, 2015

Hello Ellen. Hydrocodone has a certain detection window, which is the amount of time after ingestion during which evidence can be detected by a drug test. Remember that things like the drug test itself, level of hydration, general health state, and how much and how often one uses the medication can influence this window of detection. But generally speaking, hydrocodone can be present in the saliva 12 to 36 hours after last dose, or anywhere from 2 to 4 days in the urine, while it can be detected in the hair for up to 90 days after last dose. Since employees generally take urine drug tests, you’ll be safe very soon.

I’m freaking out over here. Jason (my boyfriend) and I have court Tuesday against my mother for grandparents visitation rights with our daughter because we don’t want her around for various reasons and she request we have a 10 panel hair follicle drug test done. About 1 1/2 month ago I had excruciating migraine episode that lasted 4 days to the point I was throwing up and everything so since I don’t have insurance my dad gave me 6 hydrocodone 10 mg which wasn’t taken all at once and Jason (my boyfriend) doesn’t know I took them since we don’t live together. Even though I’m not a chronic user and don’t abuse drugs, will it show up? How much would the 2000ng EMIT 2000ng GCMS cut off levels be? How many pills would trigger the cut off levels? Would 6 pill be enough to come up positive? I don’t understand how it’s measured. Please, explain and tell me what I maybe could do to help reduce chances of coming up positive. I scared to be seen as an unfit mother even though my daughter is very well taken care of. It was just because I was in so much pain and now all this is happening and I don’t want to disappoint my boyfriend and his family nor my daughter. My dad thinks I should be okay because it was a low dose but I’m panicking!

I took a 5mg/500 MG vicodin yesterday (monday). I have a 5 panel screen tomorrow (wednesday). The pill was prescribed to my gf a little over 8 months ago due to oral surgery. She only ever used a few. She also had 3 pills in the bottle from 2006. I can’t be sure which I ended up with. She offered me one as I was having tooth pain the pain never completely went away. Most likely due to older pills and it being in the nerves. what’s your opinion on me passing my 5 panel? at the time I didn’t know when the urine test would be. I’ve never used non prescription drugs before.

Hi a few years ago I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel but my dr wouldn’t give me medicine that would help with my pain because of my age (18 at the time) now I’m 24 and I started taking hydrocoden offered by a friend. It really helped with my pains. So I continued to take it as needed. Like a year ago I started to have stomach and colon problems. Blood in my poo ect and severe abdominal pains. They Said it was piles/ hammerroids. Problem is not going away at all n I had to come to the e.r. They just ran some urine and blood question is, can hydrocoden be the reason I now have these problems? And do I tell the dr I have been taking them unperscribed or would they know when they get the results? Also can I get in trouble? I don’t know. I just want this problem to go away. Pls help

4:31 am April 26th, 2015

My employer administers random Saliva based 6 panel tests randomly. Will Norco show up as an opiate? Also, the threshold is 40 ng/ml and the Norcos I have access to are 10 mg. As a person with an average body style (5’10 around 165 lbs), what would the general amount of time be for the amount to be below the threshold. Thank you.

11:11 pm April 27th, 2015

1:55 pm April 28th, 2015

Hi Deb. If you have a prescription from your doctor for the hydrocodone, you have nothing to worry about. Just take your prescription with you at the day of the test.

6:36 pm April 29th, 2015

I tested positive for hydrocodone but I did not take any.
I did, however take metadone, then switched to oxycontin.
during this time, I cracked 2 ribs and my primary care dr. prescribed naproxine.
Could any of this cause a false positive for hydrocodone?
are there any further tests I could ask my dr. to run to clarify this?

1:55 am April 30th, 2015

I’ve just had a body hair drug test and it came up positive for hydrocodone. I haven’t taken that in over two years. I have been taking codeine cough syrup (prescribed) in the past year. I also get urine tested every one to three weeks and they have been negative except for the codeine from the cough syrup. The MRO stands by the results. I was on Levaquin at one time for a sinus infection. I’m willing to do a swore deposition to affirm my innocence. My nursing license is on the line.

Recently my husband went in for her urine test at his back clinic, apparently they refused to see him now, because his urine tested positive for cocaine metabolites. He’s never taken anything like that what could this be coming from. He is now without a back doctor, and now without medication. He is worried, and especially humiliated. What could cause that , if you don’t do those kind of drugs.

I had back surgery 3 weeks ago and have been released back to work by my doctor. He prescribed hydrocodone 10 and I failed a urine drug test at my work for opiates. They sent it off to the lab t confirm the opiate. My question is will they terminate me? I do have a doctor prescription for it and my doctor will vouch for that. I do not have a job that is dangerous or anything.

1:34 pm May 11th, 2015

I am currently going to a methadone clinic for treatment of narcotic pain pill addiction due to my dr. over prescribing to me. He had me taking 40mg methadone, 30mg roxycodone, 8mg dilaudid, & 20mg valium every 4hrs for over 3years for treatment of pancreatitis, lupus, fibromyalgia, & neuropathy. I thought this was too much but he insisted I take them and drug screened me each month to make sure I was taking them. The DEA eventually caught up to him and sadly he shot himself in the head to avoid prosecution, with no one taking over his practice or patients, leaving me and many others in a bad situation-severely addicted and in severe withdrawal. I got into a methadone clinic and am happy to say I haven’t had any cravings in over 7 mos. nor hav I slipped. My problem is this: I recently came down with a severe ear infection to the point my ear swelled shut and was pouring blood. I had antibiotic ear drops and three 10mg norcos left over from an ear infection I had back in November, so I started treating it myself since I don’t have a dr.& can’t afford to go to the hospital. I took 1-1/2 norco (15mg) on may 4th & the other 1-1/2 (15mg) may 5th. Well, when I went for my dose of methadone today I had to do a urine drug screen, and am freaking out that the hydrocodone may show up and ill be discharged from the clinic, which will devastate me as I’ve done so well on the program. Will the hydrocodone I took on May 4th & 5th show up in my urine drug screen that was done today, May11?

9:33 pm May 11th, 2015

I took 4 norco 10’s over a week and half span 75 days ago. Do you think It will show upon my leg hair test WITH extended?

I am winging myself cold turkey off of hydrocodone. I’ve been on 10/325 for 4 years due to a back injury, I’ve been reading that’s it’s not a good idea but I’m on day 4 and starting to feel better. I was wandering why it causes so much diarrhea when I have not eaten a thing in 4 days. I have been loaded up on fluids so not to worry I’m keeping hydrated. Also, I am having a hard time with my balance. Running in to things etc. Is this normal ? Thank you for your time !

5:29 pm July 14th, 2015

Hello Gayle. Medications like clonidine or Immodium are used treat specific hydrocodone withdrawal symptoms such as high blood pressure and diarrhea, but the pharmacists can offer you other over-the-counter medications that will treat specific effects and discomfort. Also, Short acting sleep aids, acupuncture or other alternatives that aim to promote sleep can help. Try to rest well, eat a bland diet, use heating pads, increase fluid (as you are doing) and electrolytes intake, keep yourself busy, drink peppermint/ginger teas for nausea and stomach issues, talk to someone close, take warm showers or baths, and don’t hesitate to seek professional help if needed. I hope these suggestions help and that you’ll be feeling much better soon.

6:24 pm July 16th, 2015

Cathy , Can u confirm wht OVER the contereds show up as morphine,ms cotin,or Percocet

6:25 am July 17th, 2015

Dose hydroco/APAP 7.5-750 Tab Mallinckro show up as codeine in a 10 panel drug test and if it dose how many of these pills would it take to be reportable after you stopped taking them 2 days prayer to the test. Also in relation to the same if a person that weighs 265lbs 5’10.5″ somewhat active and slightly dehydrated took a 325mg tag of acetaminophen/codeine would that show up in any reportable amount giving the same senaril as above.

9:34 pm July 18th, 2015

12:43 am July 26th, 2015

I have a question, I’m stressed…. I have been on oxycodone for 10 years but a higher dose of 15mg oxycodone 5x daily for over a year, my dr stopped taking my medical in May which forced me to find a pain management dr. which I go to on Monday for the first time. My old dr did give me a full script in may but then gave me only 100 last month with directions to ween off since he’s no longer even responsible for me. I have an array of medical issues including cancer, sciatica, R.A., fibromyalgia and need both knees replaced, so in light of the daily agony I go through I had days that I needed to take an extra and ran out before the directions told me I should so I’ve been going through bad withdrawal for over a week now. On Wednesday my mom told me she had some oxycodone 5’s left over from a recent surgery and sent them over, I took 3 of them to try to take the edge off and something made me look up the pills online and here they were vicodin not percocet. I’m terrified when I go to pain management Monday that it will show up in my urine and they deny me care, for I’m 41 and completely bed ridden without my meds. How long would it stay in my system? A friend has since given me some of the 15’s I am on and I’ve been taking them but if the vicodin shows up it could kill my chances forever. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF IT WILL SHOW UP IN URINE FROM WEDNESDAY EVENING AROUND 6:30 IF MY APPT IS 2:00 ON MONDAY??????

4:49 pm July 27th, 2015

I’m prescribed hydrocodone (norco) bc I just had surgery. I take weekly drug tests due to probation and I went today and they are saying I was dirty for oxy’s and that they are sending it to the lab. How is this even possible? I haven’t taken anything other than my prescribed medicine. Why would it even come back that I’m dirty for oxy’s?

2:52 am July 31st, 2015

Do they just test for the presence of the drug or do they test to see how much you are taking?

6:35 pm August 3rd, 2015

My husband is in the middle of a long and ugly custody battle. He’s been prescribed pain meds for chronic pain due to a bad motor cycle wreck.

His children’s mom has some major control issues and has kept them from him. We’ve finally been able to save enough money for an attorney and she’s fighting for a hair follicle test even thought we have multiple urine and mouth swab test proving he’s not abusing drugs. She’s constantly saying those test can’t be trusted due to cover ups people use.

My question is ; is she right will those test not hold weight with a judge? Will we be forced to pay out more money for a hair follicle test that will only prove yes he’s prescription pain pills? Keep in mind he’s openly admitted that he’s prescribed pain meds that his doctor monitors?

I tested positive for hydrocodone in my urine supposedly taken within a couple days. I have not taken any. My medicines I do take is clonazepam, benazepril, atenolol, hydrochlorothiazide, a comnivent inhaler and sometimes a generic Tylenol called good sense from family dollar stores and nothing else. What could have caused this.

12:15 pm August 17th, 2015

Hello Fred. Tylenol and hydrocodone can both cause a false positive for opiates. You should speak to the laboratory and inform them about the medications you are taking. Also, check this link out to see what can cause false positives for many substances:

I recently took a urine drug screen for college. The doctor who processed my results contacted me by phone and said I tested positive for hydrocodone and amphetamines. I am prescribed hydromorphone and adderall. Why would I have a positive result for hydrocodone when I take hydromorphone? Also, I am prescribed Xanax but he said my test was negative for benzos. Can you please explain these two scenarios?

3:32 pm August 18th, 2015

1:51 pm September 3rd, 2015

Hi. I made a huge mistake by taking a 10mg hydro pill mixed with 325 acetaminophen the night before I was randomly drug tested. I don’t use drugs, and I was in major pain. I have a horrible back. I took my test at work, and it was being sent to the lab. Is it likely I’ll be fired? Will it be detected? I took it about 8:00 pm, and tested about 7:00pm the next evening.

5:23 am September 4th, 2015

The father of my children and I have a horrible battle with custody and child support. I am legitimately prescribed hydrocodone and I take them exactly the way I should down to the last day of the month so I am not “worried” but he is trying to claim that anyone on painkillers is a piece of “poo” and is a junkie… meanwhile I know for a fact he does…snorts…suboxone,, subutex, whatever those things are.. he is NOT prescribed and never has been but they DO NOT show up on ANY drug urinalysis AT ALL… so when I take a test, urine or blood, will I be able to show that I quite literally take one pill every 4 to 6 hours as they have prescribed..(and I seriously do take them exactly that way) will it be better to prove that via blood test or urine, cuz I will volunteer the extra money, whatever I need, to prove I take them exactly the right way and, what do I ask for if I want them to specifically test for this subutex crap? he does the white kinds, is that different from the orange kind and do I need to request for him to have a blood test other than urine?

2:23 am September 8th, 2015

I’ve been treating with a Respectable Pain Clinic for about a year and they have a new Doctor that I had to see because mine was unavailable. Well anyways to make a long story short, he came in the room and was talking with us and told me and my son that 5 or 6 if my urine test have tested negative for Opioids. But here’s the thing I don’t take them for a couple of days if I know I have an appointment to go to because if I did wouldn’t be able to drive, would this cause my test to come back the way they do.. So now I feel they have labeled me because of this . I’m an 84 year old women and wouldn’t do anything to jepordize my care at this Doctors office . So what’s your take on this

6:13 am November 7th, 2015

I have a pain management contract with my doctor for Vicodin 10/325. I am to take one at bed time for pain and to help sleep. I did a mud run (5k in the mud) and hurt my elbow. Went to urgent care and they told me to just keep taking my meds that I had. I then started taking three a day for pain. My elbow is better and I’ve been back to my regular dose for the last two weeks. I now have to go in for blood work to check levels. I am wonder if it will be detected when I took higher levels. It may get me thrown off my treatment plan even if she has paperwork from urgent care. So I’m wondering if two weeks is long enough for the higher level to not be detected. Thank you for your assistance.

If a drug test is testing for oxycodone will hydrocodone come up as well?

8:33 am November 19th, 2015

I see a pain doctor. I was prescribed hydrocodone. The results of my urine drug test showed a hydocodone value of 106, morphine value of 106 and a hydromorphone of 30. i have not taken any drugs other than prescribed. I suffer from pancreatitis and end stage kidney disease. Please help I am having anxiety attacks over this. I’m affraid of being dismissed and I have’nt done anything wrong. Why is this happening?

9:58 am November 20th, 2015

9:57 pm November 25th, 2015

I take 7.5/325 Norco twice daily. I saw my doctor who did a “drugs of abuse”blood test and all were negative. I hadnt taken my pill for that day yet and told him that. Now because of negative test he’s thinking I’m not taking it. Why didnt it show up in my test?

9:32 am November 28th, 2015

will hydrocodone show up as an “opiate” on a urine drug screen or specifically as “hydrocodone”. And does the same hold true for oxycontin and other opiates. Is the urine test so fine tuned that it can differentiate the specific drug/medication one from another?

12:12 am December 1st, 2015

I have taken the hydrocodone the day before and the day of my drug test and it will not show up. Can you please tell me why? Also, i have the same problem with xanax as well. I don’t like being called a liar when I know I take it. Will it show up in a blood test?

4:59 am December 1st, 2015

I took 5 10mg on Saturday and 5 again on Sunday of hydrocodone. On tburs and Friday before that I took 5 500mg and again ths same Friday. I stopped taking it monday. How long for that amount to get out of my system. I’ve read anywhere from 2-5 days. I’m also looking for a drug test to ck it before I go to get tested. Any help would be greAt!!

I was taking hydrocodone at regular intervals 1q.6-8hrs. The hydrocodone apap, 7.5/325mg.upon submitting urine for tic screen, it came back as not detectable. I am on a huge regime of Rx’s. What Rx. medications would cause this false results? I have tried to get answers from the lab performing test, they told me only the prescribing Dr. can access those results. His RN gave me the report numbers. Thank you. Just a quick word. Since this web site deals with addiction, I have been clean since 06/16/1979 . Sober since 11/27/1995.

10:47 pm December 4th, 2015

Hi I got an unexpected 10 panel drug screen for a job transfer. My husband has a prescription for 10 mg hydrocodone. I took one Monday and had a drug test Friday. I’m very worried that I will fail my drug test. I don’t even drink alcohol so I am feeling so angry and upset. From my understanding I wouldn’t need any health or drug screen for just a transfer so it wad a huge surprise

7:21 am December 5th, 2015

I’m a 64 yr old grand mom. have never taken illegal drugs. I’ve had two total knee replacements, a HYSTORECAMY, 2 CARPAL TUNEL SURGERIES, 2 bladder lifts, a totally screwed up foot surgery, to fix a bunion. I was sent to a different dr. to fix the first mistake. she was from mass general and did a great job. I was then sent to therapy and they were so aggressive they ripped the whole thing apart. so again back into surgery for the third time. Anne Johnson from mass general is great but did not want to do another surgery until I stopped smoking and I was too afraid I’d end up a cripple. so 2009,2010,2011,surgeries. I asked for a second opinion because of the pain. she sent me to dr. slovenkai (who is the god of foot surgeries) he did an mri, and a cat scan. I had a torn tendon and two small fractures. I decided to stay w/ dr. Johnson. she has been giving me 120 vicoden to get through every month. I’m allowed to take up to four a day and it’s been working fine. I now was having severe neck pain and saw another surgeon who operation on nov. 30th. I explained to his nurse about the vicoden and she said she would have to give me something stronger and to stop vicoden after surgery. I picked up my vicoden on nov. 27 and took them for 3 days till surgery. I stayed overnight and was given a strong oxicoton to handle pain. I sent my tenant to get my percripstion after she picked me up from the hospital. the young pharmacists called my doctor and refused to fill it. so my dr. cancelled it and told me to get by on my vicoden. she said I could take up to 10 a day. how does this make sense. I’m in so much pain. I’m taking a muscle relaxer, tylonol, tramadol and my vicodin. they slit my throat, and fused c2 and3 together, then fused 4 &5 plus added plates. I gave up smoking Set. 27 th and I’m ready to start again. my foot surgery is set for feb.12. what should I do?

5:22 pm December 5th, 2015

He orders me hydrocodone anyways so he knows i take those. Plus I’m a little worried cuz3days prior to that i was at my moms decorating her house and hurt my back so she gave me something for it and after a few minutes started feeling very sick and found out that she had given me a couple tramadol which I’m HIGHLY allergic to and i don’t know if those will show up since i took the test 3 days after taking those.

II was given a drug test for Norco to make sure I was taking it properly. I tested negative for both Norco and Valium (which I take 3 times a day and is prescribed for Bipolar Disorder). Because I tested negative for Norco, my doctor cannot prescribe the drug ever. I am in excrutiating pain. I have osteoarthritis, a bulging disk, fibromyalgia and scoliosis. My pain is chronic and severe. I did take Jextra Norco in the beginning of the month and ran out, so I tested negative for 7 days. I never took the Valium in any other way than as prescribed. I want to dispute the test. How do I do this. I am in Florida.

1:32 am January 27th, 2016

I’ve been taking hydrocodone twice daily for 8 yrs. I am given both blood & urine tests annually. Two months ago I had my blood & urine test & both came back negative, I was surprised as I am taking the same amount even the same time each day. I was given a urine test one week later, it has come back negative, I’m beside myself wondering what is wrong? My Dr now questions that I’m taking my pills, I take them for back, neck & shoulder & CERTAINLY wouldn’t skip a pill. The only thing different this time is Dr added Etodolac, would that have anything to do with it? I am at my wits end wondering what is wrong & how could I be tested to see why none is in my system?

11:21 pm January 27th, 2016

1st off I want to thank you for the information-
I am really stressed out and would appreciate a response to my following question.
I used to pop a lot of Norcos (hydrocodone)
On Thursday Jan 21st, afternoonish, I popped about 12 pills, then submitted my urine test for the military on Monday Jan 25th.
I read before the drugs usually stay in your system for 4 days, which is why I took the pills on Thursday, I know I should have waited an extra day or 2, but I couldn’t.
My question is will the pills show up in my urine test?
I had not popped any pills for a week or so before,
And I do have a high or fast metabolism…
Is there any way you can let me know what you think would be the outcome?
Remember, this is for the ARMY, and I am very anxious to find out ASAP!
Do you think they will show up in my system? Or if they do, is there is chance that the level of drugs will not be high enough for detection – or possibly might show up in my system, yet be dis-regarded because it’s not high enough in their charts?
Please let me know!
Thank you.

5:04 am January 29th, 2016

I am legally prescribed Norco and take them (5-10mg) in the evening after work at times, usually around 6-8pm. I had a urine drug screen today at 2pm after taking 10mg at 6:30 last night. I’m worried that my “levels” of hydrocodone will not reflect the last dosage and they will think that I might be taking them at work (which I do NOT do). This is mostly paranoia speaking but I’m hoping you can please advise.

5:06 am January 30th, 2016

I am taking a drug test on 2/1/16 on an army base for DOD employment. The last time I had a hydro was the weekend of the 16th of January 2016. Am I at risk to test positve. I was not a heavy user of this prevarication drug but I’m still concerned.

10:48 am January 30th, 2016

I tested positive for opiates I have PCP and hydrocodone in my system . my test was sent to the lab. I’m wondering what’s going to be detected. I’m persribed the hydro’s. Took today.the PCP was two days ago.

10:44 pm January 30th, 2016

I am prescribed 20mg of methadone per day and 30 mg of hydrocodone per day but I only take 10mg of methadone and 10 mg of hydrocodone per day, will my pain management urine drug screen test show that I am not taking the amount prescribed?

12:52 am February 3rd, 2016

Hi, I am a dr. But not a medical doctor. I had a patient come in and was very worried. She is on a rehab program and slipped and said she took a hydrocodone pill and a glass of wine? Let’s say she told me she had 1 but may have had 2-3 because of her addiction. If she took them Sunday night and was tested Monday around 1:00 pm, do you think she would test positive? What about the alcohol, red wine. Thanks

9:01 pm February 4th, 2016

I took 2 hydrocodone on Wednesday. I’m not a frequent user this was an old prescription from a past back injury. I have a drug screen on Tuesday. Will this be out of my urine by than?

9:33 am February 5th, 2016

I Take Hydrocod/Acetaminophen 7.5-325mg Tab one Tab 4 Times a Day as Needed ! I Get 120 Quanity every month ! Now I Know that Seems like a lot but you need to know my medical history & not judge me ! I am no a drug addict & I have never been one ! I Take Lyrica too ! I’m going to condense my story before I get cut off here ! I Have severe Fibromyalgia, I Also Have Severe Pain & Stiffness which Comes with That illness ! I Also Use To Have Chronic Severe Diarrea, I Have see Every GI Specialist Out There, have been poked prodded tested, existed, you name it, No One Could Cure it, help stop it, etc ! I would Wake up at night in The middle of a dead sleep to find my bed covered in Diarreah ! Long Story Short, My Great Doctor in Wichita Put me on Lyrica When I was Already on my Pain Pills & We Found That This Protocol Stopped My Diarreah Entirely ! Yes I Take All 4 Of The Pain Pills Each Day, I Take 2 In The Morning After I Eat my Breakfast & an Hour Later I Take my Lyrica ! I Do The same thing at night before I Go To Bed ! So Yes I Need All 120 Pills of The Hydrocodine Acetomenophen Every Month, But I No Longer Wake up With Diarrea in My Bed ! I Now Can Live A Normal Life ! So Here is My Problem Now ! I Just Moved To Georgia, Found a Dr, Told Him Everything I Just Told You, Asked Him if This Would be a Problem For him, he said No ! He Had A List of all the Meds I Was taking ! He said that I Would have to take a Urine Drug Test Every 3 Months, I Said No Problem as Long as the Lab isn’t real far away ! He said that the Lab was right in their office, I said Great, Do I Need An appointment for it ? He said Yes ! He Wrote me a RX For my Hydrcodine/Acetomenophen 325 mg that very day for 120 Tablets ! He said when I Needed a refill to just call the office & he would leave it at the front desk for me,just call a week ahead ! So when it came time to do this a month later, all hell breaks loose ! I called & no one calls me back, they keep saying his nurse will call me, that the RX is sitting there but he hasn’t sighned it yet ! Finally I Demand a day before my RX runs out to speak to his.nurse & she says that he’s not comfortable writing me a RX for that many Hydrocodine/Acetomenophens ! I said what ? He Wrote it before & we had a conversation about my medication, why now is he not comfortable ! She said he wants me to see a Neurologist for my Fibromyalgia & Pain ! I said, I don’t need to see a Neurologist, what is going on here ? She said you could also choose to go to a Pain Management Specialist, but it would take a lot longer to get in & therefor take longer to get your medication you need ! Than she said, I call the dr back & see if he’ll give you a script until you can get into a specialist, tell me now if it will be the neurologist or pain management ! So I said a Neurologist because I Felt Blackmailed ! So Then She asked if I Took a urine test for my last RX & I told her No ! She then went Ballistic ! She said or She asked me Bluntly, Didn’t Dr so & So, I won’t identify him here, didn’t he ask you to give a urine specimen the day you saw him before he wrote you your RX ? I told her No again ! He told me that I had to get a urine drug test every 3 months, so I made an appointment when I checked out, check your records, its there in March ! He could lose his license for not getting a drug test ! Ok O’ll call you Tommorrow ! So she calls & leaves me a message saying that the dr will have one last RX waiting for me at the front desk for 60 tablets only ! I must make an appt with the neurologist specialist ! I also first when I come in have to leave a urine specimen to be sent out for a drug test ! So I went in, the girls in the lab in the office said I didn’t have enough urine in my cup, long story short, they had me there for 2 hours while I drank water & desperately tried to pee some more for them ! Unfortunately I have trouble urinating sometimes & well this was one of those times & I could only pee a little bit more but I really feel the first time I gave her enough ! She said that Quest Labs Wouldn’t except it, but she would send it out anyway after I told her that Was all I could do ! I made an appointment for which is today now at 11:15am to see this doctor after telling this nurse & the staff what happened & that I would of found another doctor if he would of just told me he ha a problem with my pain Meds ! I feel something suspicious about this doctor and trying to force me to see a neurologist and this whole nightmare he’s putting me through ! Sincerely. Leslie

i take 1 and a half tab of hydrocodone 10/325 every night along with equip for restless legs and Status post back fusion. I am a healthcare worker who can be asked to drug screen on a random basis. Both meds are given to me via an RX from my primary doctor. Will this cause me to screen positive on a random screen since I take these nightly. Should I carry a written letter from my doctor verifying the subscription. A coworker got screened and she was taking phenergan with codeine for a cough . She informed the screeners that she has and is taking this RX subscribed, yet she had a red flag and was escorted out of the building and off work now for 3 days waiting validation of the Script. How do afford such a situation . I would just like to screen and they see that I may have trace amounts of hydrocodone from a dose taken 12 hours prior, from a prescription.

9:40 am March 17th, 2016

Hi. I have been taking Norco 4 times a day at a strength of 5-325 mg for about 6 years for pain. I need to pass a drug test for a job at a hospital, and although I have a prescription for it, I do not want it to show up on my drug test at all (and I obviously don’t ever plan on taking it while at the hospital). How long do I need to be off of it in order to make that happen? I do realize that it will likely be tough, but that’s okay I’m doing it. I just need to know the safe answer of how long it can take to get out of my system. If the test were to show up positive, and I show them my prescription, will they share that information with my employer (of the medication I take)? And then would I have to show the medication prior to the test, or if it comes up positive can I show them after I get that result? This is very important to me, so any advice is much appreciated. Thank you!

I have been taking Hydrocodone for 3 years and for the last 3 months my Pain Management Doctor requested I Have drug test to make sure Iam taking my pain Meds and not I guess selling them. Iam not selling them. But he says my test have been coming back Negitive. I don’t want him to stop my pain Meds because I have Multiple Scrisis and I need the Hydrocodone to ease my pain. I take them one twice a day. What can I do to get a positive test so he doesn’t stop my Pain Meds.

I have a prescription for hydrocodone from the VA and have been taking them as prescribed. (3X a day) I have been taking quarterly urine test and they keep showing negative on the results. I have been notified by the VA nurse informing me that I have been red flagged because of negative results on my tests. When I am notified to go to the VA to give a urine sample for the next day, I take my last pill of the day at 8 P.M. The next morning I go to the VA without taking my morning dose as I have to drive to the facility for 10 A.M.. The urine is then collect at 1 P.M. by a courier and shipped from the clinic to the main hospital lab 5 hours away. By the time the urine reaches the lab it is closed for the day. It must process the urine the next day. Would that have any effect on the sample of urine given from the day before and last dose taken the day before that?

I’m under pressure to get it done ASAP. In the last 2 days, I’ve drank about 3-4 liters of water. How confident should I feel for this evening (testing center closes at 5 pm). Or tomorrow evening (same time). Thanks so much for any help!

I recently had a heart attack. There were complications with the surgery and I ended up with a massive right femoral pseudoaneurysm w/ embolectomy and repair right profunda vein. The second time I was an inpatient being fed a variety of morphine(4mg every 2 hrs), HYDROmorphone (dilaudid)0.5mg every 5 min, Demerol 12.5 mg, etc.etc. they started to wein me off of the intravenously fed variety of opioids with 2 norcos 5/325 every 4 hrs.

A little while ago I was in the hospital for a heart attack. I then the following week had to go back because I had a pseudoaneurysm both times I was pumped all kinds of drugs in my system and then I was given hydrocodone right before I left the hospital. 2 weeks later I have a urinalysis at my pain doctors office. Seeing as I had all of those different drugs in my system is there any possibility of a positive showing for hydrocodone? Not to mention but for those two weeks I laid around most perfectly still which slows down my metabolism and everything else could you please give me an answer ASAP thank you.

5:46 pm April 30th, 2016

A little while back I was hospitalized with a heart attack there were some complications nd I ended up with a pseudoaneurysm. So that means I was in the hospital twice within 4 days of each other,both times being fed intravenously all kinds of meds. Not to mention my daily prescriptions which there are 17. Taking all that into consideration along with being fed two 5/ 325 norcos right before I went home from the hospital why would I testt positive on a urinalysis 4 hydrocodone 2 weeks later?

Can D-Amphetamine salt combo 30mg a day chemically change how hydrocodone is read in a urine test from a pain mgmt clinic because 3 weeks after I was prescribed the stimulant for my lymphatic system for DERCUMS DISEASE “A very rare debilitating progresive and painful disease” prescribed by a world renowned specialist in fat disorders I then showed no hydrocodone in my urine test results from the pain clinic after testing good results with the clinic every month for 4 years and some months. The only other thing that changed after my addition of medicine was a new clinician that took over for our last Dr who had to move and this PA had told me for the last 2 months also being her patient that I had not passed the last 2 tests and I needed to pass this one because she will not lose her license for her patients. What do you say about this question??
And THANK YOU for your time reading this.

Hi, I have been taking Norcos for nearly 16 years, I have chronic pain in my shoulders and also in my knees, I also was recently diagnosed diabetes and high blood pressure and high cholesterol, so I take insulin every night and blood pressure pills and cholesterol pills and Metformin pills, I had just got a new doctor , so she had me do a drug screen test, and the test came back negative for opiates, so I had her do another urine test and she said that one was also negative, I do not understand, because I take my norcos on a regular basis, was wondering if all the other medications I take make my test negative?

12:43 am June 15th, 2016

How many lortabs will I have to take to show up in 3days?

2:29 am July 16th, 2016

i am taking 30 mg of lortab a day and 30 mg of morphine a day! I recently had a drug test that showed I didn’t have any in my system and I had told the doctor it was probably because I had these for a 30 day prescription but didn’t have my urine test until the 32nd day from the first time I started my meds! He only looked at the dates of the first day I got my prescription to the day I came back and said it was a month and I should have had my meds show up in the urine test! I had taken my meds correctly and could not understand why they didn’t show up so I actually counted the days from the first day I started until the day of my urine test and it was actually 32 days and I know what time I always take my last dose of both pills and it had been approximately 47 hours from the last lortab I took and approximately 42 hours from the last morphine I took ! I took my last dose on day 30 and did not have my urine test until day 32 ! I then decided to try and read articles to see if I could figure this out and it said that it varies on different people and their metabolism and if you drink a lot of water each day that it could also flush drugs out of your system faster and I drink anywhere from 5 to 8 liters of water a day!! Could this be why I didn’t have either drug show up on my test because I took them for the full 30 days and did not take more than I was prescribed per day and it was almost 2 days past the 30 day mark when I was tested !

8:02 am November 3rd, 2016

Serious problem here at home. Do you know of any places I can send in a hair follicle to be tested? If so, how much do they normally run? I just had surgery and have had 30 of my hydrocodones go missing. I live with my boyfriend, dad, and step mother. This is not the first time it happens. After I got out of the hospital last year, my OxyContin went missing also. My boyfriend wouldn’t dare. An 800 Motrin knocks him out, and i have to force him to take it since he doesn’t like medications. My step mother has her own stronger hydrocodones, and it really seems like my dad is the one lying to me. I would like my dad to take a drug test to see if he took the hydrocodones. I just need to know how much it will be. Any advice is also appreciated.

Hi, my husband has been snorting hydrocone for years. I just found out earlier this year. He has been a master at hiding it! It’s destroying our marriage as well as his physical health. We have 4 kids 19,16, a disabled 3yr old & a 19month old. He says he has stopped but I keep finding bright yellow pill chunks residue on the back of the toilets. He denies it’s hydrocone cause he says he’s clean & it must be something else from someone else. Is there a way I can have the pill chunks I found tested to see what it is?

7:50 am December 10th, 2016

I’m curious if tramadol and hydrocodone will show up as the same in a drug screen? I knw they are closely related but curious if the urine test can specify the difference since they are both from the opioid analgesic class.

I have two questions which I have googled for answers unsuccessfully. I’ve taken more than the prescribed 3 10mg norcos per day, like 10 norcos. When I ran out of norcos I went to the er who drug tested me after 26 hours since my last intake. Surprisingly I was negative for opiates! How is that possible? It was urine test.
Also, a few weeks ago I saved one tablet of 10mg norco for me to take about 6 hours before the urine drug test. I did not take the prescribed 10mg 3 times a day of norco for two weeks prior to taking that one last dose. Will the test be positive after taking just one dose?

Hello I just had a quick question. About 5 days ago I had a horrible headache and I was completely out of ibuprofen so I found an old pain killer ( hydrocodone ) from when I had my wisdom teeth taken out about a year ago. Well I thought nothing of it and took it well today I got offered a job and they need a drug test. I don’t take hydrocodone often just when I’m out of pain relievers or my migraine meds. I would estimate one every three months if that. But I’m scared it I’ll show up on this drug test and with the prescription being expired I won’t get the job. What do you think?

My doctor ordered a urine drug test for me to see if I am taking my Norcos properly. I have no idea what the acceptable nanograms per mililiter is supposed to be. My test came back as 746 ng/mL. I am prescribed 10-325 up to 4 times each day and that is all I take. He sent me the test results with no indications if I was within the acceptable parameters. Can you tell me what the acceptable parameters are in general? It kind of seemed like he thought I was over the limit but I really could not tell and right now I am afraid to ask him. Can you give me some idea? Also, can you tell me if the gas chrom. tests are 100% accurate?

8:34 pm March 2nd, 2017

I have been prescribed Hydrocodone 7.5mg since Jan. 2016. In February and March, my levels showed up right. In March, I was raised to 10mg. and in May I was tested (again) but this time my levels showed up half of what they did when I was taking the 7.5mg. Every time I was tested after that, my levels were again half of the previous test but I taking the prescribed dose, the prescribed number of times every day at almost the exact time of day. My levels decreased to the point that my doctor cut me off for a month until I asked for a blood screen. I thought surely that would be right but it showed NONE in my system! How can there be no hydrocodone but acetametaphine is there? Isn’t that in hydrocodone? Please can someone tell me how there has been a gradual decrease of it when I never skip a dose?

3:06 am March 3rd, 2017

Csn I pass a drug screen 12 panel after 1 use of a hydrocodone 10 6 days ago I need to know for a job??? The pill I took was a watson 853

11:23 pm March 8th, 2017

I’m prescribed 7.5/325 norcos. Sometimes I need them four times a day like it is written. But I don’t take them unless I need them because I am afraid of addiction that I keep hearing about. So sometimes I can go days without any or just one or two. But now after years of being prescribed them the doctor says that they have to test regularly. My question is how should I take them to pass a urinalysis and be a the proper level so I don’t lose my prescription? Because like I said there is times I need more than one or two a day.

5:31 am March 9th, 2017

I have a script of norco 7.5mg. Four times a day. I have gotten these for years. Now sometimes I don’t need to take four a day sometimes just two and I can go a couple days sometimes without none. (Good days and bad days). When I need them I need them so I don’t want to stop getting them. But I also don’t want to take them when I don’t have to. But because of regulations changed I have to start doing urinalysis. My question is how should I take them so I pass that test without having to take them everyday?

6:05 am March 9th, 2017

If I take more norco than prescribed and I’m tested for the levels in my system how much would I have to take to have a way high level .that they would know I’m taking more than prescribed .

3:44 pm March 10th, 2017

I’m on suboxone because I became seriously addicted to hydrocodone after a wreck with multiple surgeries over a period of 10 years. I now have two issues with 2 different areas of my teeth that need work, because of the wreck. I took 5 10 mgs of lortab yesterday for pain until I go to my dentist for the 1st repair in two days. I did not have a prescription, but was not taking it for the wrong reason, yet still, I had no prescription. I have to go see my suboxone dr today. Will it show? I’m thinking yes, and he won’t believe my truth. The stigma is real…. How long will it take before those 5 10 mg lortabs I took all together yesterday not show up in my urine?? Please help…. I don’t want to look bad towards my suboxone dr who is honestly trying to help me, but I’m still dealing with pain from the wreck and trying to fix it all??? Please respond as soon as possible. Thanks in advance 😊

7:18 pm March 13th, 2017

Finally gave up and agreed to get into a pain clinic after years of “self help” on the streets. In have multiple painful diagnosis, and was supposed to be in a wheelchair 7 years ago. I’m still up walking around. Now the quacks are saying I’ve had a brain aneurysm to boot! Long story short, I’ve been taking anywhere from 4 to 10 lortab 10s a week, depending on finances and pain levels. I’m trying to go “legit” and haven’t taken anything since Friday. The clinic is going to do blood and urine testing. Do I have a hope or am I just wasting what little time I have left?

12:20 am March 14th, 2017

I have been taking regularly for the past 8 years but I ran out a little 6 days early last month. Will I pass or fail my drug test? In other words will there be enough hydrocodone in my system to pass the urine test? I am 60 female and weigh about 200 lbs. Ok health wise. I also wear a Fenal patch ( that I had on) 25 MGS. Thank you, very worried!

5:58 am March 15th, 2017

Thank you

8:50 pm March 21st, 2017

I have severe back and arthritis issues. I have had them for 10 years. For a few years now, I was able to get by with 5-325 mg Vicodin as needed. It always worked and I never took more than 2 in any day, although the pain is horrendous. In the past year, the pills quit working. I noticed that your blog shows that some people are being tested for opiates and the docs are not finding any in their blood. I am convinced that I am not to the point where the med does not work anymore, but that the manufacturers or either not putting the pain med in the drug, or the government has made them stop. What happens is that we who are in severe pain are too scared of being called a criminal to complain about the medicine. It is becoming a tragic story for the elderly. I even hear of cancer and post surgical patients not getting pain relief. I took my pills to a lab, and it was confirmed, not opiates, just acetaminophen. I know that people abuse, but what are we to do. A daily life of extreme pain in no way to live.

10:20 pm March 22nd, 2017

i took my pain meds hydrocodone 4 hours before text and test was negative

11:21 pm March 23rd, 2017

I have had 3 drug screenings that show a hydrocodone level of 50 ng/mL where the cut off is
25 ng/mL. I was taking 60 mg of oxycontin twice daily but no hydrocodone. I absolutely have not taken any hydrocodone or any other drug except what is prescribed for me (oxycontin 60mg, premarin 9mg, excitaloprem 20mg, Linzess 290mcg,and nexium 40mg). The only change in my life in this time period is my insurance company required that we change pharmacies. That began 3 months ago. I have been on prescription pain meds for 20 plus years and had recently cut myself back by one-third of what I had been prescribed. Now my pain doctor is treating me like I am a real drug addict and he says he is not going to write my prescriptions anymore. I have NEVER tried to get more meds, nor have I been to the emergency room or seen any other doctor for pain. I have been an exemplary patient for all these years and now I am treated like a drug seeking addict! I do not know what to do I am terribly embarrased, humiliated, and frightened. Please help me. My doctor has no help for me . His attitude and demeanor has done a complete turn around.

1:24 am March 24th, 2017

My doctor thinks that I been abusing these extra drugs and said he can no longer prescribe any kind of pain medication for me………. I need these everyday, without, my knees and legs are screwed and my life suffers greatly as well as my sleep which becomes non-existent. What happened? Please help me.

7:22 am April 9th, 2017

On 4/1/2017 I went to the ER for severe back pain, was given a morphine injection, as well as a prescription for Hydrocodone. Impression was that there was a possible injury to my spine in the area of T10. On 4/7/2017 I had severe back pain again and went to the ER by ambulance from my doctor’s office. Diagnosis was compression fracture of T10 and T12. I noticed on Follow My Health that the ER doctor from the 4/7 visit ordered a urine drug screen test without my knowledge. I’ve been researching tonight and found out that it is legal. But my question is why would an ER doctor order a drug screen test? I’ve never done drugs in my life, nor smoke, nor drink alcohol. I feel humiliated that the ER doctor ordered this. What I am concerned about is the opiates came back positive and that is on my health record. My question is, is that from the Morphine the hospital gave me on 4/1, or is it from the hydrocodone prescription they gave me on 4/1? Or is it from both? My concern with the opiates coming back positive how will that affect me in the future? will future doctors not prescribe me medicine if I am in pain? I really don’t like pain pills anyway because they cause me to be sick to my stomach, but there may come a point in my life I need them again. Please advise. Thank you so kindly.

10:58 am April 9th, 2017

I have a “pharmcheck” (manufacturer) sweat patch drug test. With this sweat patch it reports if I have been using drugs. I have a hernia and kidney stones so the Dr. Ordered me hydrocodones. 325/5. Strength. I only have taken 2 of these pills 36 hours before the sweat patch. Is to be removed. My question is will these 2 hydrocodones show up in that sweat patch and cause it to be positive for opiates? I wont get in trouble either way because I have a legit script but I was just wondering if the would show up or not.


7:23 pm April 9th, 2017

I stopped taking hydrocodone on Friday. I have a drug test for a job on Monday. Will or should I be fine?

8:16 pm April 11th, 2017

Hi, I do not suffer from drug addiction but am looking for answers about drug testing. I’m a patient of a pain management doctor after3 car accidents and multiple back surgeries. My doctor’s office policy is to urine test every3 months and do 2 random pill count and drug tests a year. My problem is this: a few months ago, I was tested and came back negative for Xanax in my system. This was the first time it happened and I had been taking it nightly for 15 years. I was also recently switched from Oxycontin to Morphine Sulfate. I was randomly tested again a few weeks ago and found out today I tested negative for the Morphine. I take my meds exactly as prescribed and have both a healthy fear and respect for them. The other drug they test for is Percocet. I take that as well and the results are fine. The only new thing I’ve started taking are multiple vitamins. Since my doctor’s policy is to take you off of any meds you test negative for I’m very worried about my future. How can I keep testing negative for drugs I take every day and according to schedule???? Any answers you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much. Lisa

1:35 am April 20th, 2017

I took one 10mg pill of hydrocodine from an old perscription for menstral cramps and 12 hours later took a 35105N SAP 5-50 W/NIT for employment. I don’t take any drugs street or perscription and this was a honest mistake. Am I going to fail and if I do is there anything I can say?

12:39 am April 30th, 2017

Hey I’m Jon I’m 28 and I am prescribed to Suboxone 8mg/2mg 1twice a day for pain in my back and I ran out a few days early and had some left over 10 mg Vicodin that was prescribed to me before I started this treatment. It’s been about a year since I have taken any Vicodin and I will run outta those tonight around 10p.m I wiegh 155 and my metabolism is decent and my doctor’s appointment is on Wednesday at end of the day in mg I’ve taken about 200mg in the last few days (10 mg tabs 60mg a day ) do you think my UA would show up clean?

6:59 pm May 1st, 2017

I have been taking hydrocodone for chronic back pain for decades but when I am tested for it by the dr it always comes back as negative. The tests have been urine, blood and hair follicle testing and still comes back as negative. What can cause this and what can I do because the dr won’t prescribe it anymore if not found in my system

7:17 am May 3rd, 2017

Hi, I’m stressing out because I think I might have taken 1 l0mg lortab a day before I was tested at my pain clinic. I’ve got a broken back that has not healed in 5 years & countless surgeries & in hellish pain always. My pain doctor has had me on 15mg morphine sulfate 4 times a day and I was in a wreck last week. A huge commercial truck rear ended me and my family going over 50mph and caused my pain from my broken back to dramatically increase of course. The night of the wreck I was helped at the hospital & released to go home. They didn’t give me anything for my extra pain since I already had my 15mg morphine script, but that script was barely taking my normal pain away from my broken back so obviously after being in a terrible wreck, car totaled and in extreme pain I without even thinking accepted one of my mom’s 10mg lortab pills to help ease the significant extra pain I was in that night. At the time, I was not thinking clearly having just lost our car, our dog was killed since she was in the backseat, our 2 year old child had cuts all over him from the broken glass and the last thing I was thinking about was the possibility of being asked only a day later to go to my pain clinic for a random drug screening. I’m pretty sure it had been a full 24 hours before my test & it was a urine test. My doctor saw me afterwards like normal & never said anything about my urine test & even changed my prescription to a stronger medication to help my pain better. They scheduled me for 2 months from now to come back just like always. My only fear is that I know they send these urine samples off to an actual lab for testing and I’m so nervous that that single lortab is going to show up possibly at the a actual lab. Do you know if just 1 would show up after a 24 hours? Also, would they even be able to distinguish between the morphine I’m prescribed and the 1 lortab I took? Would they even detect it at such a low level? I hope you can help me understand what to expect. I already know I could tell my doctor what happened & hope he’d have a heart & understand but in the current climate where almost everybody taking narcotics are assumed to be druggies even if they have no history, & no previous failed tests I’m too afraid to be honest with my doctor. If this had happened 5 years ago I would feel fine telling my doctor what happened but not the way we are treated now. I just need to know the answers to the questions I asked and thank you for any insight!

10:44 pm May 6th, 2017

If someone takes hydrocodone on a regular basis and has a urine test preformed. Will the urine tester know that you are simply just taking hydrocodone and not something hardcore?

I am 74 year old and have a “pain management” Rx for Norco 10. I have had a RX for Loratab 10. The Dr. gives me two Rx.s and they are filled monthly. I have lost the 2nd one and have not had a pill in 16 days. I called the Dr. and made an appointment and I am afraid that they might want a urine test again. I am a liver transplant patient and had a bowel obstruction and vomited for two weeks. When I had a urine test a few months ago, the Doc said it was low- which I thought was explainable. The last time I was there they gave me the 2 Rx’s and said I would be tested in 60 days. Now that the RX is lost for the next 30 days and I have not had a pill in 18 days- I am afraid that I will test “low” if urine tested. How long do you have to be taking 3 a day to test acceptable for continued “pain management” care.

5:53 pm May 18th, 2017

I took 5 hydrocodone in one day about a month and a half ago. Will that show up in a hair follicle test?

12:37 am May 25th, 2017

My son is testing positive for opiates (hydrocodone specifically) but says he is only taking his prescribed medication of Verapamil and Lexapro. He recently did a blood test which came back positive abnormal (level was 2.6 ng/mL). What does positive abnormal mean exactly? Is it possible his Verapamil or Lexapro could be giving him a false-positive. I am desperately seeking answers as he is adamant he is not using drugs. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated.

1:59 am May 30th, 2017

I need to know what home test will accurately test for hydrocodone and/or oxycodone. Parents that are suspected pain pill addicts want their children to visit out of state for the summer and I will not send them if they fail a test…

8:21 pm June 9th, 2017

I’ve been prescribed Norco but don’t take it as often as prescribed. I still want to test positive and the right levels to continue getting the prescription so that I have them when I need them. And drug tests test how long in the levels of the drug it’s in your system?

9:22 pm June 12th, 2017

How long does hydrocodone test positive n blood stream

9:37 am June 24th, 2017

I am prescribed Tylenol #3. If I were to take a 10mg
hydrocodone, would a urine screen identify each one
separately. I am subject to random screens. They use
a 10 panel standard test.

6:17 am June 30th, 2017

I took only one 10 mg Vicodin and will be doing a urine drug test in 24 hours,will it show up in my test?

12:13 am July 3rd, 2017

My urine test comes up negative for opiates. Even in the hospital. at the time I was wearing a duragesic patch and taking hydrocodone 4 times a day. It kept showing up negative so my doctor accused me of selling it. Absolutely not true. Most worry that drugs show up in urine mine doesnt I told the doctor I didn’t care if she never wrote another prescription but I wanted her to know the truth. I asked what we can do to prove this is false. I offered to take pill in front of her and stay at office to have repeated urine tests. I am 62 yrs old,,, I have RA, Seizures, Fibromyalga, restless leg syndrome, colitis. I use patches only when my RA is flarimg. Usually just take hydrocodone as needed every 4-6 hours. I do take lots of meds for my RA & seizures. This is crazy what is going on.

4:54 am July 4th, 2017

My husband was prescribed Hydrocodone-homatropine for cough. He recently took a UDS for employer and was advised that he had ”small amount” of codeine. He informed them of the prescription. But they’re saying that the amount found was a meniscule amount and would be from it being ingested? We’re both confused. Any advice?

11:43 pm July 5th, 2017

I am in pain management where I am prescribed 10-325mg Oxycodone 4x daily. I have been on this dose for a while. The most recent urine drug test said that I had Norco in my system, indicating I had taken it in the 24-48 hours before the test. I don’t think I have ever had Norco. I checked all of my remaining pills to make sure they were marked correctly. No one else in my house has an RX for it either. How is it possible that it is in my urine? My Dr. said that the test also shows the Oxycodone, so he feels the test is accurate. Help! I take lots of other prescriptions in case that helps someone give me advice. (Oxycodone, Gabapentin, Escitalopram, Wellbutrin, Ambien, Metformin, Victoza, Lantus, Pravastatin, Propranalol, Lisinopril, Naproxen, and Levothyroxine) Anyone have any suggestions? I don’t want this to show up again to make me be discharged from pain management.

7:12 am July 6th, 2017

If I took 1 Hydrocodone 5-325 at midnight and then had to go do a pee drug test for a job, would it show as positive for drugs to keep me from getting the job? My drug test was at 3PM.

Hello I had a hair follicle test done and got a positive for hydrocodone. About a month ago i was in an accident and went to the hospital in which they gave me acetaminophen and ibuprofen once. I have never taken hydrocodone for anything I’m really confused as to why it came back positive.

10:01 pm July 20th, 2017

My son was jumped & had his jaws broken. He had surgery & was wired completely shut for 5 weeks, & on a liquid diet only. He was hired for a job that he was to start after his surgery again for unwiring. He was prescribed Hydrocodone-Acteamin liquid, Chlorhexidine Gluconate. & Amoxicillin-Pot Clavula. Two days before he was to give a urine drug test he had finished his last dose of hydrocodone. When the test came back he lost his job because it showed that he was using Methamphetamine plus others. He swears that he has never touched the stuff. Also his comment to his jobs boss was, “If I was using, I would NEVER have even taken the drug test, I would have just said good bye & walked away”. My question is, does hydrocodone show up on urine drug tests as this Methamphetamine plus other bad drugs or not? Our local pharmacist tells us that it does not. In the research that I am doing it IS showing that it does. Can you please help me. My son would like to prove this & get his job back. Thank You

10:13 pm July 24th, 2017

I take 10/325 Hydrocondone daily for pain. The last I was drug tested by my doctor said it did not show up in my urine. I do not know why it wouldn’t show up. I take my meds as prescribed. I take 40 mg of Lisinopril plus 10ms of hydroclorthiziad for blood pressure so I am in the bathroom more than out first thing in the mornings. Why would the hydro not show on drug screen?

2:51 am July 27th, 2017

2:34 am August 14th, 2017

Hi, I go to a pain clinic and I am taking hydrocodone as prescribed by my doctor. 5 months ago I was told to do a urine test which I did and the results came back that I had morphine in my urine. This is a drug that I was not taking nor had I been in the hospital at any time that I would have been given the morphine. I asked to retake the test and it came back again with a small number that showed morphine but not the hydrocodone that I was taking. I don’t know what to do as I know that I am not taking any morphine just the prescribed hydrocodone. I have been asked to take another urine test and I am afraid of the results. Could this be the error on the part of the lab doing the testing?

3:36 pm August 15th, 2017

Hi Linda. If you feel that your test result is incorrect there are several things you can do:
1. Talk with your practitioner about other prescription or over the counter medications you use.
2. Ask for a laboratory confirmatory test in case it’s not already a part of the testing process.
3. Participate in screening and assessment performed by your doctor or another medical professional.

7:21 am August 15th, 2017

I go to a pain clinic for back problems, but lately I have been having extra pain because of a total knee replacement. I was allowed to take five 10 milligram hydrocodones a day for two weeks about two prescriptions ago, but I got better so i did not use all of them, I took about a week’s worth. Now I ran into some extra problems due to pain caused by the knee therapy and for the last week or so I used five a day again instead of 4 a day, but, as I said, it was meds they gave me with that intention. I did not call the doctor’s office and tell them because I have been instructed to not call them so much, anyway, tomorrow I might get a drug test. still, I did not use any extra meds for the knee surgery and the surgeon said that is the first time in his career that he had a patient that did not take more meds than normal for the surgery. still, I would like to know perhaps when i get the epidural done if the doctor tests my blood he might find out more about exactly how many I took a day for the last week, or perhaps longer. would a urine test show exactly how many one has taken and for how long? if a test is done in the blood, would THAT test show how many one has taken and for how long?

12:14 pm August 15th, 2017

Hi Charles. Drug testing is a procedure that determines the positive or negative presence of hydrocodone or its metabolite in hair, blood or urine. There is a minimum measurement applied to drug testing so that only traces of hydrocodone or its metabolite above a specified level is reported as positive. Hair tests are usually most accurate to tell for how long a person has been using hydrocodone. However, the level of hydrocodone in your system compared with the half life of the drug can also show the length of time you’ve been on hydrocodones.

5:36 pm August 17th, 2017

What types of drug screens detect hydrocodone in urine?

5:27 am August 19th, 2017

I take Naco #10 and I took a drug test and it came back opiates in my urine it came back positive is that because I take Naco lortabs

5:17 pm August 19th, 2017

I take oxycodone & oxycontin but recently I have tested positive for hydrocodone but I have never taken it..what could possibly cause this..I’m 63 yrs old an 100% disabled. I’ve suffered from cronic pain over 30 yrs because of my disability.. I need help to find out why this has happened

12:08 am August 20th, 2017

I have been taken hydrocodone 5-325mg for at least 10 years for back pain. I took one at 12:00 on Thursday night and one tablet yesterday at 1:00 during the day. I had a doctor’s appointment yesterday afternoon for a physical. A urine test was done at the doctors office and it showed up negative. The nurse told me I had to go to the lab and do a urine test to be sent to the lab. I had to drank a coke and two bottles of water before I could produce enough urine for the test. I am very concerned because the nurse told me that if the test was negative that my doctor which I have been going to for at least 20 years (he is my primary doctor) would not write me prescriptions any more for my hydrocodone any more. I did have blood work done while I was at the lab. I am very concerned. Should I call the doctors office Monday morning and ask if they can also check my blood for the drug test? I have been taking my medication for so long and could not live with my back pain without my medication. Thanks for your help.

9:40 pm August 22nd, 2017

I take Oxycodone and Oxycontin daily, 80mg total. I recently had a urine test conducted and it came back with a presence of Hydrocodone and Nor-hydrocodone, 10-13 ng. I found several articles online with comments this is common due to contamination during manufacturing. I spoke with my pharmacist and she was unaware. Tried researching the manufacturer’s WEB sites but no information there, and doubt they’ll talk about it. Any reliable references to this contamination claim?

5:57 pm August 28th, 2017

I have chronic pain and usually take a few hydrocodone a day, sometimes oxycodone, it usually seems like they aren’t even helping but then I had some hair stand and send off (not instant) urine tests during which time frame I had a good bit of pain meds due to surgery. I had proof they were prescribed to me so I was prepared but unconcerned. I was even taking meds the day of the tests but when the results came in for hair and urine NOTHING showed up…ever…over months of testing. Not the med not the metabolite. Am I even getting the meds or am I not metabolized them and they do no good? I’m supposed to be getting in with a pain specialist and I’m sure they will conduct test to verify I take meds right instead of selling or whatever. If I take them right and they never show on a drug test then that would get me into trouble

7:32 am September 6th, 2017

I actually take Norco as prescribed by my doctor. I’ve had two cervical fusion surgeries. I’ve read on your page about the time frame in which the medication shows up on a test and I have been in between the 6. Hour time frame. I have even tried to set my clock to take the medicine 3-4 hours apart before my appointment. Which leads me to my question. My question is, why does my doctor act like the medicine is barely showing up. By asking me when was the last time I had taken the medicine. It’s getting frustratingly confusing.

9:36 pm September 7th, 2017

I am taking my hydrocodone as subscribed but it is not showing in my urine test. Why would this be.

12:58 am September 9th, 2017

I have a pre employment drug screen in a couple days. I have a prescription for 5/325 acetaminophen hydrocodon liquid. I took 5 doses in the last 24 hours. By the time I take a drug test it will be approximately 72 hours. Even though I have a prescription I would rather not test positive. Do you think I’ll pass. Is there anything I can do to eliminate hydrocodon from my system faster? Any help appreciated.

5:54 am September 14th, 2017

I have taken norco 10-325mg 3times a day per prescription, and i didn’t take it today. I had a urine test at my doctor’s office this afternoon, an she said it showed I had nothing in me an accused me of not taking my meds right
How is this possible. Shouldn’t that much show in my system for awhile?

3:53 am September 15th, 2017

Tested positive hydrocodone ms 17.6ng/10mg have a script for hydro. Will this positive stop me from employment passing drug test

8:36 pm September 15th, 2017

Is 1400 mg of hydrocodone high
or is that a good level if they are prescribed but they are a meth user and Opiate user

7:06 pm September 19th, 2017

I take norco for fibro pain. My script says to take 1/2 -1 every 6 hours. I have told my dr that I usually have to take 1 1/2 every 4-5 hours. He allows me 5 a day. I don’t go over that but I’m not taking the exactly like prescribed. If I took 1/2 to 1 every six hours I would have no relief. I took a urine test the last time I went in and now I’m worried about that. I never go ever the 5 and I have told him how I’ve been taking them. Actually several times. And I told my nurse the same thing before she gave me the urine test. Do they test for total levels or or the the test show levels of each dose?i guess I need to talk to him more about it. My thought is if 1 doesn’t work, why even take it. I’m mean that is silly if it’s not even working to put it in your body for no relief.

10:46 pm September 19th, 2017

My wife is on Norco 10/325, 5 times a day and has been since 2000. She has been taking urine screen test about every 4-5 month and nothing has ever been said until March 2017. The pain doctor told her that the urine test did not show but just a little in her system back then. On the 29th of August 2017 she took another urine screen test and was given her scrip’s for them. She is also taking warfarin sod 4mg 5 nights a week and a 5mg once a week and atorvastatin 40mg once a day plus isosorbide monontrate once a day because of heart blockage and other things and Friday the 15th she received a letter from the pain clinic that told her she has been dismissed because she failed the drug text last month and no other reason what so ever. I emailed the clinic and ask how could she had failed it and their reply was still the same, nothing so they did not tell she was not taking them or taking more than she is supposed to. All of her meds are watched very closely since she is 67 years old and her meds are kelp locked up from being stolen. The test is sent from Tennessee to some place in Florida I was told by a nurse there back in March 2017. Could either of the meds listed above could cause the Norco’s she takes to have made her fail her last screed test? I know all doctors that gives people pain medicine are suppose to check him or her and not just walk in the door, say how are you and looks on their computer to send the scripts to the desk for anyone to pick up. Any help on this and she doesn’t have an addiction problem at all.

5:41 pm September 23rd, 2017

6:01 pm October 2nd, 2017

I was currently pulled over and had 25 mg Lortab in my possession. I am seeing a pain specialist and will have surgery in the near future . I am prescribed Tylenol 4 and receiving epidurals at the moment and was getting ready to see my pain specialist before I was arrested for the two lortab. my doctor was going to upgrade me to lortab while I had to wait for my surgery date because the pain is getting worse each day. I didn’t make my next appointment however, due to the 2 lortab that I was charged with. I was forced to give blood and I was not over taking any medication. Will Tylenol four show up as the same thing as Lortab and is there anything or any suggestion that you can give to me. I’m not asking you for legal advice, I just would like someone who can give accurate information so I can understand. Thank you for your time, and please reply back. I sincerely appreciate it.

4:11 pm October 3rd, 2017

I take 10/325 Hydrocodone 4x a day. My pharmacy shorted me 10 pills. I have an appointment in the morning with my PM doc in 3 days. So I have been rationing to make up for the miscount. I have enough for 2 1/2 days of my prescribed dosing. If I’m tested do you think I’ll be ok. Not sure if I should just be up front with my doctor about shortage. He might not believe me. He probably hears that excuse all the time. Thank you for your opinion.

Two years ago I was undergoing treating for a herniated disk and spinal stenosis. I was given hydrocodone. On a random test, I tested positive for cocaine. I was higher incensed for this happening. I have never ever taken cocaine or other illegal drugs. I am 74 years old. Is this a possible result from hydrocodone? Thanks

5:58 am October 25th, 2017

Hey there! I have been seeing my Orthopedic Surgeon for about two years for a previous shoulder injury. After two MRIs, physical therapy, multiple cortisone shots I was diagnosed with three herniated disks along with arthritis. I have been prescribed Norco, Voltaren, Flexeril and a few antiinflammatories. The last visit they referred me to pain management. I took a drug test to make sure my levels were accurate. Before I even took the test, I told my doctor my shoulder has good days and bad days. I haven’t taken the Norco in a week because I don’t want to be dependent on them. What are the right levels? How should I handle this? Take the pills even though I don’t need them so it shows in my system? I have a feeling if I am honest and say that I am not in pain that moment then my doctor will cut me off totally when it flares up. Any advise will be helpful! Thank you!

11:57 pm November 12th, 2017

6:59 am December 13th, 2017

I take my hydro codeine and I drink nothing but water yet when my urine is tested it doesn’t show hydrocodone can you explain why

9:59 pm December 14th, 2017

I get drug screened regularly at my pain management doctor. He has had me on several different drugs such as methadone and hydrocodone. I am presently taking roxicodone for pain and a couple different drugs! In the past several months they have told me that I flunked my drug screening. They said that I have had methadone and hydrocodone showing in my urine. For years this doctor had me pretty much in good shape with methadone and hydrocodone, I had very little pain but I also took nsids for pain. I had some methadone and hydrocodone left over from my prescriptions because he decided to quit the methadone! I was only taking 5 mg morning and night, which I think is a very low dose. Now I am taking the roxicodone 15 mg, but it doesn’t help that great so every once in a while I take 5 mg of methadone or a hydrocodone 10 mg. Before each drug screening it had been 14 to 21 days since I have taken them. But they tell me that the methadone and hydrocodone are showing up in my urine and because of this they take 15 pills from my roxi prescription and this has happened twice so I am out 30 pills! They are either getting a false reading or they stuff stays in your system a lot longer than 2-4 days! Can youl please tell me what could be happening?

12:08 pm December 15th, 2017

I have a hair follicle test in the next 2-3 weeks. I took only one pill of Hydrocodone a few days ago for my back pain I’ve gotten since I received a epidural. I was given the prescription when my daughter was born 2 years ago but threw out the bottle since it was the last pill. I could easily get a prescription copy from the pharmacy. I guess my question is will they see it Suspicious since it was given to me so long ago and why I took it recently?

1:28 am December 16th, 2017

I take roxicodone, baclofen, neurotin, and several other drugs from my pain management doctor and more from my internist for hbp and diabetes. There has been two times in the past  (six) months that they have drug tested me and it showed “oxymorphone” in my system and because of this they have cut the roxicodone prescription by 15 pills each time! What is oxymorphone?  I have never taken it nor do I know what it is. I have told them they are making a mistake but they are always right. I do are so take ibuprofen for pain of neuropathy.  Can you attempt to explain what is happening?

I have some hydrocodon left from an injury and expired in 2013. I recently had foot surgery (Joint replacement) and ran out of my current pain medication (Tramadol) 8 days ago. I took one of the hydrocodon since I was in a lot of pain after physical therapy. Afterward I called the pharmacist and they recommend I get rid of the remaining medication. I have done that but wondered if taking this can effect my upcoming drug test despite the expiration date?

My husband took two generic Vicodin (5mg each) for his scoliosis pain about one month before his 14 panel Hair Follicle Drug Test and he does not have a prescription for them. He is otherwise clean and has been for years. The lab called to ask questions but wouldn’t answer when he called them back several times and now they are closed until Tuesday. What are the odds that he was under the 300pg/mg cut off point? The test was a pre-employment thing.

I took a half of a hydrocodone 10. DUTY
came back negative.
I cannot figure this out at all. I am prescribed 3 a day. Told doc I sometimes take half to have a larger dose when hurting worse.
But a negative test has me upset since I am also drinking more liquids for kidney problems.
How and why would it come back negative?

My girlfriend took 1 1/2 of my prescribed percocet pills which are 5 mg of hydrocodone. She took them to combat a migraine headache but was unfortunate to have had been mandated to have a urine screen today. she took the 7.5 mg of hydrocodone on Saturday night and had the urine test today at about three pm. Is she worried for good cause or is that too small a quantity to register almost four days after the fact? She is not a drug user and is worried she will be seen as one. she was simply trying to get rid of her headache.

I take morophine sulfate ER 15mg x2 reduced from 60mg 3x, hydrocodone 7.5.325 reduced from 125.325 and x3 and bupropion HCL SR 1 tablet x2. I do not drink or use illegal drugs. My doctor informed me today that my urine sample from last month showed alcohol. The way he spoke to me was very accusatory and if the sample given today showed alcohol it will be put on my medical record and reported to the state. I told him one thing you don’t do to me is to threaten and not to lie to or on my. I won’t allow anyone to tarnish my integrity. I need to know will these meds show a false positive of alcohol in urine? Please shed some light for me because I’m like the bull who ran through the China shop. If you would please help me with this I will fix the window in the China shop lol With much respect and pray you can help.

7:34 pm February 28th, 2018

Hi, I took 8 hydrocodone 5/325 mg at 2pm yesterday, then another 5 of them at 5:30pm, then was randomly drug tested today at 4:45pm. Prior to those pills, I had not taken hydrocodone for several weeks. I have done this off and on for the last several years but never for consecutive days. I drank a lot of water, pissed every hour as a result, and I am wondering what my chances of passing the test might be. I have a high tolerance to hydrocodone. In the past, I have passed the urine test in 2 days, but this is the first time I took it in 1 day. Please give me your feedback. Thank you.

1:33 pm March 16th, 2018

I have been prescribed hydrocodone for a lengthy time for several bone, joint, neuromuscular, autoimmune, and genetic diseases. Recently, I was administered an urinalysis. I was told by a physician I tested negative. The physician claimed I must be over medicating myself and running out of my medication. Mind you I brought my pain pills to my appointment. The nurse did not do a pill count in February or March to make these accusations. I am not abusing my medications. When I took the urinalysis, the container changed to a dark blue. Also, I have various digestive problems ie. gall bladder, IBS, acid reflux, pancreatitis. I have bought some of vomiting and diarrhea. Why did I have a false negative test? The threats about continuing or discontinuing my treatment at this facility or other facilities was intimidating and embarassing. I need answers as soon as possible to address this situation. I am not an addict. I have a degree in substance abuse counseling. I know the signs of use, misuse, and abuse.

4:59 am July 3rd, 2018

What could POSSIBLY have caused a false positive for hydrocodone when someone did not take hydrocodone? We literally tore our house apart looking to see if there was a leftover Norco from my gall bladder surgery 2 years ago and there is nothing. Yet when my wife had her regular urine test (required by her Kaiser doctor since she prescribes Percocet 10/325 for osteoarthritis) it showed as positive for hydrocodone. It was also positive for oxycodone, which was to be expected. She uses CBD topical as needed (maybe once a day) on one finger that has severe arthritis. She has to take Percocet for her osteoarthritis because she had bariatric surgery 12 years ago and cannot take NSAIDs. She tells me daily hindsight is 20/20 – she does not recommend bariatric surgery for anyone now because she didn’t know then she’d be severely arthritic years later without options.
