Percocet is absorbed and metabolized quickly by the body. Therefore, Percocet will only be detectable for a couple of days after taking the medication, at least for most standard drug tests. Hair-based tests will be able to detect it for much longer, but these tests are rarely used for employment and other routine drug testing. More on Percocet detection times and drug testing here, plus a section at the end for your questions about Percocet in the system.

Main Percocet uses

Percocet is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Some people get high on Percocet, and euphoria occurs because Percocet contains oxycodone, an opiate class medication, and the non-narcotic pain reliever acetaminophen. Percocet works by altering the brain and nervous system’s response to pain.

How do you take Percocet?

Percocet is available in tablet form and is taken orally. However, Percocet abusers will sometimes chew or crush the tablets to release all the medication at once. They may also crush the tablets and snort the powder, or dissolve the pills in water and inject the mixture into the blood.  However, snorting Percs or injecting Percocet increase risk of Percocet addiction.

Peak levels and half life of Percocet

Percocet takes effect within just 15-20 minutes after oral administration. It reaches peak levels in 30-60 minutes. A normal formulation of Percocet has a half-life of around 3.2 hours.

Percocet drug testing: How long does Percocet stay in the body?

Narcotic pain medications like Percocet don’t stay in the body very long. Although blood tests are the least reliable means for detecting Percocet in the system, urine and hair tests are both reliable and accurate means for detecting Percocet. More on detection windows by drug test type here.

How long does Percocet stay in blood?

Due to its short half-life, Percocet doesn’t stay in the blood long-term. The levels of Percocet in the blood are typically undetectable after about a day.

How long does Percocet stay in hair?

Most drugs can be detected in hair for about 90 days. This does depend on how long someone’s hair is, how recently it’s been cut, the color of the hair, chemical hair treatments, and the amount of the drug taken. And trace amounts of Percocet are more difficult to detect than large amounts or chronic use. Still this kind of testing may be used to monitor compliance in a drug treatment program or to give authorities a long term picture of past drug use.

How long does Percocet stay in urine?

Percocet can usually only be detected in urine for 1-2 days. In cases of heavy or chronic use, it might be detectable for slightly longer periods. The exact amount of time urine screens will detect Percocet depends on the amount of Percocet a person is taking, how long they’ve been using it, and their own personal metabolism.

Percocet and addiction

Percocet is an addictive drug. In fact, Percocet can be habit-forming even in those who use it for legitimate medical purposes. The drug gives a euphoric high when taken in large doses. A Percocet addict runs the risk of withdrawal symptoms if they try to quit, and overdose if they abuse it carelessly. An Percocet addiction may, ultimately, be fatal.

Problems with Percocet?

If you think that you have a problem with Percocet, you probably do. If you struggle with Percocet addiction, a doctor can refer you to therapies which will help. There are medical interventions which may be able to help you first stop taking Percocet and then manage addiction. Being open with friends and family about your Percocet addiction can help you build a support network, which can help prevent relapse.

    1. Hi Bianca. Yes. If you stop using Percocet after you have developed a dependence, you may experience withdrawal symptoms.

  104. When is it safe & legal to drive after taking Percocet 10mg?
    Script was given after oral surgery for #20 tabs, non refillable.

    1. Hi Donna. There are usually restrictions on driving or operating machinery when prescribed Percocet in the beginning, until you see how your body reacts to the medication and doctors see that you have gotten accustomed to it’s effects.

    1. Hello Ralph. First, your medication should be prescribed from a licensed practitioner.Then, the driver is unqualified, if he/she uses medications such as narcotic, amphetamine, or a habit forming drug. According to this, Percocet may disqualify you from driving. However, the prescribing doctor can write that the driver is safe to drive while taking the medication. So, consult your doctor about this.

  105. Hi. I took 50mg of percocet on Monday and it’s now Thursday in which i have a urine test tonight. Will it be out by tonight if i drank some water. Or is it already out my system. It’s a home urine test for where I’m living at, like do stick test.

He has never taken any of that pain meds … Hydrocodone or any of that … He takes his prescribed medicine wish is lisiniprl Crestor atentol metformin a water pill an aspirin and fish oil … And on occasion he takes an aleve if his muscles are sore and achy … How could this be true he swears and said he would like to take it again as which the man (Dr ) said he couldn’t … He has now lost a job that he would of been on for two years … He is 58 years old hasn’t worked but about 3 to 4 months a year in the past 4 years … He has no unemployment or any in me except for my retirement pay … I think the test results are wrong … But now it’s his word against theirs We want new test or what ever it takes … Why would this happen

  130. Okay, so. I am prescribed Percocet 10s at 4 times a day and honestly I take a bit more than my prescribed dosage and have been for a few months now. The thing is I get drug tested once a week by my probation officer and I test clean EVERY TIME and my P.O. is tripping on me and asking why arnt I peeing dirty for opiates and shes wondering if I’m selling them or doing something to cover up the use of street drugs, which I am not doing either. Does anyone have ANY idea why the hell I’m coming up clean? I mean I should have a decent amount of opiates in my system, she told me her lab technician said that I should be well above the cut off.

  131. After taking oxycodone over the past year for severe arthritis, I have successfully tapered off completely this past weekend, 3+ mos after joint surgery. Pre and post op I was taking a total of 40mg (contin and codone/tylenol) in a 24 hr period. Went to 30, 20, 10, 5 mgs w/o too much trouble as long as my pain mgmt doc prescribed the same dose times (6-8 hrs), until 5mg/day (2.5-12 hrs). The past two days since I stopped completely I seem to have RLS – dead tired and ready to sleep but can’t stop moving. Tonic water seems to help because the quinine helps relax muscles. When I finally get a few hrs sleep, I wake up with the runs and spend an hour or so back and forth to the bathroom. How long will this last? This is the first longterm experience I’ve had with opiates, so I’m in the dark. The doc thinks I shouldn’t have a problem and has discharged me. Daytime I’m good, but really need to sleep better at night.

  144. Hello – please believe I’m not an addict but I put my back out last week and a friend offered me a single 5 mg of Percocet this past Friday to help me ease a lil pain. I started a new job yesterday and was asked to take a drug test (DOT) which I took today. Should I be concerned about failing the test? I would greatly appreciate a response as I’m very worried! Thank you in advance

    1. Hi Wilf. It is not easy to quit any medication after long-term use, even if you only took it in the prescribed doses. But, there is a way to do it properly and as comfortable as possible. However, you can expect to feel withdrawal symptoms when you completely quit or as you are gradually lowering doses. I’d suggest you talk to your doctor about creating a tapering schedule that will fit your needs best. Your doctor can also prescribe medications that will help treat the withdrawal discomfort and also provide you with some general guidelines. Most of the withdrawal effects can be successfully treated with OTC’s and natural remedies. The most important thing is to stay motivated and not give up.

  145. If I take a 10mg percocet Saturday night, will I be clean for a urine test tuesday afternoon? Im 5’2 and around 180lbs

  150. I just had a baby on Feb 11and was put on Percocet with acetaminophen 5-325 I had to take it every 4 hours while at the hospital they also gave me Motrin 600 mg In between I think every 8 hours but I didn’t take it that much. When on the percocet it made me feel terrible made Me cry numb panic I thought I was dying so I stopped taking the pills officially Feb 16 around 630am and haven’t been on it since. I want to take just regular strength Tylenol for my pain since I had a c-section but I’m scared and I still feel pretty bad from the percocet I guess I want to know if it’s safe I can take the Tylenol even though I still have Percocet in my system and still feel out of it.

  151. Can a drug test detect how much percocet I’ve taken each day. I am on a PM program and sometimes take 1.5 pills per day and no more than 2.5 pills a day depending on pain.. Can the test determine dosage to that specific level. I ask as I am new to Pain Management process and don’t want to rock the boat and can’t ask Dr until Monday. Thanks.

  152. With any type of drug, you need to be careful about what are called “metabolites” As the drug metabolizes, it changes form. Metabolites can remain detectable long after the drug is gone. I have personally had this happen with Diazepam. Even though I had a prescription for it, take a very low dose, and it had been over 24 hours since I had taken any (I left home without it) I wound up getting arrested for DUI, and they did a blood test. They found a minute trace of a metabolite, not even close to being enough to cause impairment, but was still charged with DUI. I got off pretty easily, but it still cost me $$$ for an attorney. Many unscrupulous cops/employers will charge/terminate you if they find ANYTHING at all.

  153. I took 3 oxycodone thirtys which is ninety mg on sat. I have a urinescreen on tues. 74 hrs between for test. Wondering will i be clean?

  157. I have been taking prescribed Percocet for chronic pain for over a year. Tablets are 5/325mg ratio. I generally take 4-6 tablets per day but sometimes up to 8 tablets on days when pain is more severe. Other days 3-4 tablets when pain is not as severe but unfortunately this is not the norm. I would say that I have a normal to fast metabolic rate. Because of duration of pain management using this medication, upon ceasing to use it, do the same general metabolism timelines apply in regards to urine tests (3-5 days)?

  158. hi i am 180 pounds, 5’5..I have not taken a percocet since august of 2013, i took 2 within the past week, and may have to get a hair drug screen… will this show up on the test? like I said since 2013 I have only taken two percocet total. please get back thank you!

  170. Hi Jeanine. If you’re thinking about stopping meds, you should consult with a doctor first. Before starting anything, have him examine you and the symptoms you’ve been experienceing. Then, your doctor will be able to give an accurate diagnosis and treat you for a condition or taper you off medications.

  171. I have been taking oxycodone, percocet, and tylonal 3 w/codon, not together, but for different physical and internal pains. Pancreatic pains, back pain, from me falling. I feel that my life is being ran by medications. I am really watching what I do with these hearty drugs. The thing that worries me, is the fact I’ve been stumbling around like my scents of balance is way off. I can take a few steps, but then stumble. I’m not thinking clearly…unable to spell words, my handwriting is very shakie along with my hands. Is this a sign that I’ve used too much of the medicine? Can this go away after stopping the meds or have I caused permanent damage? I’m very, very, very scared and worried. Can you please respond to my post soon?!?

  179. Hello Janeth. When will Percocet be completely out of your system depends on many factors. Your age, weight, health state, your metabolic rate, level of hydration, sensitivity of the test, etc. play an important role in how long it will stay detectable. It’s different for everyone, but generally it can stay in urine anywhere from 3 to 8 days.

I’m 175 pound and very active would that help it to leave my system ? Everywhere I read it seem like the talk is about heavy usage

  184. I’ve been taking 10 mg perks for about a year every day. How long will it take to get out of my system completely cutting cold turkey tomorrow? It’s gonna be one hell of a ride but gotta get clean…

  185. I took 4 10/325 Percocet’s on Friday. Monday i have a urine drug test. Will it show up?
    Also, I’m on methadone maintenance and have Hepatitis C.
    Thank you!

  186. I have been abusing percocet for about 6 months. Probably taking about 80 mg a day. I’ve gotten off them and I have an at home urin test in 10 days. Will I pass? I am physically fit, active with a fast matabolism

  187. I was prescribed Tylenol 3 and ran out so i took a 5 milligram perocet last night, will a drug test show up as general oxycodone in my system or the perocet exactly? I think the drug test is urine or mouth swab. Also I took a xanex a couple days ago will i be ok on that as well or should i be worried?

  188. If I am prescribed 4 Percocet 10/325 daily, but I take more at the beginning of the month and then less at the end of the month, can my doctor tell the difference from a urine test? I don’t want him to think I am selling them or anything if I’m only taking a couple of pills per day by the time my next appointment comes and there is less in my system than there should be.

  189. Hi Cindy; it’s not the smoking. Percocet enters and can be detected in the blood stream regardless of mode of administration. However, most drug tests do not include “extended opioids” such as oxycodone.

  190. I need to find a home drug testing kit that can detect percs if they are smoked. I have read that normal tests do not detect the drug if it is smoked.

  194. I have been on percocet for about five years, two per day. I recently failed my drug screenings, percocet was not in my system. I know it is because I changed my diet to a strict Paleo diet plus protien shakes and I have been power lifting. I have boosted my metabolism. Is there a way to prove this?

  195. i took a percocet 10 on tue at 1:30 pm and had a drug on wed at 12pm wil the percocet show up on a urine test as positive

  196. If my friend took a 30mg percocet on thursday and a 15mg on friday, will he be OK for a urine test on tuesday? He is 6 feet tall and weighs about 180 pounds. Works out 3 times a week and does a lot of cardio as well. Please let me know.

  197. Hi Barb. Hydrocodone and oxycodone both appear in drug screens as “extended opiates/opioids”. While the dose may have been higher, oxycodone should also clear the system within a couple of days and as long as your husband is taking hydrocodone as prescribed, there should be little to worry about. Please let us know how it goes!

  198. I’m worried the other morning my husband woke me up and told me to get him one of his pain meds (hydro) .Well I was sick with the flu and a little out of it. I got in our lock draw felt the size of the bottle and got out a pill. The light wasn’t on so I never looked at it. Now I’m worried the I gave him one of my Percocet 10 . This was on Wednesday (he took at 7 am) he is 5 ’11 and around 180 to 190 lbs. he had to take a drug test on Saturday at 8 am . Well his urine be okay clean ? If not i just cost him his job. We won’t find out til Tuesday .

  199. Hello Kate. Thanks for your questions. In 2011, Researchers found that of all U.S. drivers who died in a crash, about 25% tested positive for drugs. This does not mean that your mother will necessarily be involved in a fatal crash; it’s just a statistic I thought you’d like to pass on. http://www.roads.ne.gov/safetysummit/2012/presentations/romell-cooks.pdf

    Each state has its own DWI laws, so you’ll need to check with your state governance for exact laws about what is considered a “safe” level for driving while drugged. Also, as a general piece of information: Police officers are certified in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) and can become Drug Recognition Experts (DRE) with specific training.

  200. My mother has been perscribed percoset for her chronic spine pain. She may take one to three daily, but only takes them when she absolutely needs one. Here is my question. I contend that she should not be driving even after taking only one persoset. My thoughts is that it impares a persons judgements and she could cause a wreck or be in one. If a drug test were ordered for her if she were in an accident or ticketed, I contend that she would get a DUI. Am I correct? The other thing I think is that if she were to only take one in the morning, that by afternoon, the effects would wear off of her enough to be able to get her errands done, however the same applies, that if she were pulled over and ordered a drug test, she would fail and DUI result. What are your thoughts?

  201. Hi Birtney. The main active ingredient in Percocet, oxycodone, usually metabolizes at about a similar rate for most people, and should be through your system and go undetected by drug screens within 2-3 days after use.

  202. Hi Terence. If you are to take a hair sample drug screen analysis for extended opioids (which includes oxycodone), the Percocet use will be detected. Underarm hair which is 1/2 inch long can detect drug use 30 days previous.

  203. In reference to mythe last reply I’m black with a short haircut plan on getting haircut before I go. And what about underarm hair

  204. I took a percocet two weeks ago for a back injury and took one the week before that. Prior to that I don’t take any pain meds I have a drug test next Tues Oct.2 (hair test) will the percocet show up

  205. Hi Steven. You’d probably be OK to wait 4-5 days after last Percocet use to take a test and come out clean. But you can always request a home testing kit for “extended opiates” (to test for the oxycodone in Percocet) and test yourself at home to be sure.

  206. I am 5′ 6″ and weigh approx 200 lbs. I have been taking 90 milligrams of percocet (the little blue round pills) for two weeks straight with the occasional one day break. What is the longest possible amount of time that it will take to pass a urine test. Need an answer as soon as possible and thank you for your time and help.

  207. Oxycodone (the main active ingredient in Percocet) can remain and be detected in the blood for about 24 hours, or less.

  208. i need to know long oxycodone stays in your blood stream for the doctors to test your oxycodone levels

I am ready to call
