Hydrocodone is most likely to be found on a drug test if you’ve taken it within the last 24 hours. After that, the amounts in blood and urine are low enough that many labs won’t pick up on them.

Here, we’ll look more at how hydrocodone is metabolized and how it stays in various bodily systems. Keep in mind that hydrocodone narcotic addictive and can lead to side effects hydrocodone withdrawal, even when used as prescribed.

If you feel that you have lost control over your Norco use and drug seeking behavior, and want to get better…but you are worried about what happens when you finally seek help, you can learn more in this GUIDE on Norco (hydrocodone) addiction treatment programs and help. Your questions about hydrocodone use and detection are welcomed at the end.

Main hydrocodone uses

Hydrocodone is used to treat moderate to severe pain. Hydrocodone works by changing the way the body and brain respond to pain; it also affects the part of the brain that controls the coughing reflex, which is why it’s so useful in prescription cough syrups.

How do you take hydrocodone?

Hydrocodone is usually administered in pill form, and is only available in combination with other non-narcotic painkillers. These include acetaminophen, and aspirin. Sometimes hydrocodone is used as an active ingredient in cough syrups. However, hydrocodone is usually taken orally, both for medical and illicit purposes. Many people may take hydrocodone in combination with alcohol, which can be extremely dangerous and raises the risk of serious adverse effects.  And you should always take hydrocodone as prescribed.  Can you die from hydrocodone?  Yes, especially when you take hydrocodone more often, in higher doses or in ways other than prescribed (snorting, inhaling, injecting, etc.)

Peak levels and half life of hydrocodone

The half life for hydrocodone in the typical adult is just under 4 hours. In fact, hydrocodone reaches its peak level in the blood after about 1.3 hours. The amount in someone’s system will vary on the kind of medication they’ve taken: hydrocodone as a painkiller or anti-tussive cough medication.

Hydrocodone drug testing detection times

Hydrocodone is metabolized fairly quickly in the body. It’s difficult to detect hydrocodone in someone who isn’t a heavy or habitual user, especially after 24 hours or more. However, hair sample testing may detect the drug hydrocodone for up to a few months after the last dose. More on the types of drug testing for hydrocodone here.

Hydrocodone detection time in blood

Because of its short half-life, hydrocodone is unlikely to be detected in the blood after about 24 hours. A blood test would mostly be useful in cases of medical emergency, impaired driving, or any other situation where there’s reason to believe someone is currently under the influence of hydrocodone.

Hydrocodone detection time in hair

Hydrocodone can be detected in hair. Hair testing for hydrocodone can usually uncover substance abuse that occurred several weeks before, a time frame during which urine tests will no longer be accurate.

Hydrocodone detection time in urine

Hydrocodone reaches its peak concentration in urine after about 8 hours. At that point, levels of hydrocodone in urine begin to taper off. Depending on the dose taken, hydrocodone may only be detectable for 6-24 hours after taking the drug.

Hydrocodone and addiction

Like all opiate medications, hydrocodone is addictive. Hydrocodone addiction is characterized by drug craving, in spite of negative life consequences and even when the drug is out of your system. Even if you don’t get addicted to hydrocodone, users can easily develop a tolerance to hydrocodone, leading them to take hydrocodone in progressively larger doses to achieve original effect. Hydrocodone also fosters a physical dependence, even in people who are using it for legitimate medical reasons like pain management. People dependent on hydrocodone experience withdrawal when they lower dose or stop taking hydrocodone completely. Hydrocodone cannot be stopped abruptly without causing cravings and physical side effects and you should always detox from hydrocodone under medical supervision.

Problems with hydrocodone?

If you think that you have a problem with hydrocodone, you probably do. If you’re addicted to narcotics, there are support groups and medical treatments available to help. If you’re a patient with a hydrocodone prescription and you’re having to take large doses for pain relief, speak to your doctor about adjusting your dosage or trying a different medication. If you’ve developed and dependence on the drug, but want to quit, your doctor can help you slowly wean yourself from the drug.

I also take numerous meds for my cancer, blood pressure, asthma, diabetes, cholesterol and leg cramps (tramadol). My urinalysis comes back negative each time. Why? I take tramadol and hydrocodone every night and most mornings. Why am i still negative? Pain management is ready to cancel me from the program. I’m at a loss and will surely hurt if cancelled. Help please.

  25. I was prescribed hydrocodone for pain in my legs. It’s getting so bad to the point where it’s hard to carry my 8 month year old daughter. I really don’t want to take any pills, but If the pain gets so bad that I have to take them, will it be safe if I’m breastfeeding? That’s my main concern.

  26. I took 16 10/325 hydrocodones today. I don’t understand how the 1/2 life thing works. How many hours would It take until I could pass a urine drug test. I am 160 lbs and workout some but have a lot of fat. If the 1/2 life is 4 hours and I times that by 16, I get 64 hours. I add 8 hours for the original effectiveness and I get 72 hours. Does that sound correct?

  33. My wife is on 5, 10/325 Norco’s a day She had an urine test done on 8/28/17 and she received a letter yesterday saying that she is dismissed because she failed the test. She has lower back pain bad even by taking them and now since they will not see her again, what will become of her at 67 years of age and in really bad health and have major surgery in 2015 that almost took her away. She has been on them from the mid 90’s and by taking five a day it should have shown up at the least. They send the test to Florida which is, depending on what city about 9 to 12 hours and being left in the office for 20 or more before sending it off could that be a factor or not? She has to take atorvastatin 40mg, warfarin sod 4mg, and isosorbide monontrate daily and have her IRN checked every other week. Any help with this and how bad could the withdrawal be on her after taking them for 22 years?

  34. Took one 10mg hydrocodone at 2am, 5 mg at 4:45 am, 1000 mg Boswellia at 7:45am. Urinalysis with GS/ML shows NO detectable levels of hydrocodone in my urine collected at 9am. Why would that be?

  35. I took one hydrocodone-acetemenophen 5-325 tablet at 8:30 am on 9/2/17 for severe back pain and spasms. I never take this kind of pain medication, it has been years since I have taken hydrocodone. How long will it be detectable in a urine test?

  36. I last took 3 10mg oxycodone with the last dose at 730pm on Thursday. It was the last of my pills. I had a surprise drug screen on Tuesday morning at 9am. Will it show up on the screen? I’m worried they’ll cut me off. I run out sometimes 6 to 7 days early. I take this medication for breakthrough pain. I take Tramadol ER as my everyday.

  37. I am in a sober living, here narcotics aren’t suppose to be taken, I recently took about 5-6 5/325 norcos, when should I stop taking them if I want to pass the drug test, and I don’t get in trouble and kicked out? I THINK, it’s a 5 panel, HELP PLEASE!!

  39. I am currently taking Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen 5-325 and taking nothing else. When I took a UA it should up positive for oxycodone, why did that happen?

    1. Hi Brenda. It depends on the drug test that was taken. High levels of hydrocodone may show up as oxycodone if they use the 10 panel test. You can request that your test sample is sent the lab to get exactly what’s in the drug screen.

  40. What can cause a false negative the pain doc said my wife should range between 3000 and 5000 her score was 50 almost non exsistant? My wife takes 4 7.5 hydrocodone daily

  48. IF I TOOK 2 N A HALF (10mg) HYDROCODONE PILLS FRIDAY NIGHT WILL IT BE OUT OF MY SYSTEM MONDAY IF I TAKE A URINE TEST??

  49. I had a surprise drug test at my doctors office when I went to pick up my script. I have been on hydrocodone for 4+years. 120 7.5mg tablets for 30 day supply. Recently due to opiod epidemic and new policies my doctor has to decrease the dosage by ten each month and refer me to pain specialist. My last script was 100 tablets for 30 days. Dosage directions are 1 tablet every 6 hours AS NEEDED. I took 1 tablet Monday at noon. tablets through out day on tuesday and 1 tablet on wednesday at noon. Went to get my script on thursday at 930am and was urine tested. I tested positive for my adderall which I am to take 1 30mg tablet twice a day but negative for opiates. Was told they were sending it out to lab. Today I had to go in and ask for results as noone contacted me. They said that results were indecisive. When I questioned them what that meant the said that i came back with 0 being my number for they hydrocodone. How is this possible???? I understand about the abuse of prescription drugs and would not be arguing or trying to understand if I was wrong but I know what I took and when and cant understand this. Now I am not able to get either prescription(neither of which should be stopped on the spot). From my research and the anount of time I was on them just stopping could cause serious medical problem. I have seen that hydrocodone is metabolized rather quickly anyway(from my research depending on things like tolerence, metabolism dosage to name a few it may only be detected 6-24hours depending on the individual) and the adderall speeds up your metabolism. Could the adderall have had an effect on how long the hydrocodone was present??? Noone at the office seems to be able to explain this. If i had anything to hide or not hide so to speak I would have left and not taken the test and just got an automatic failure but that is not the case. I am 33 years old 5’3″ and 130 lbs. I have always had a high metabolism my entire life to the point it was hard for me to put any weight on until I had my 2 children. Even after my 2nd child I had lost all pregnancy weight in 3 weeks. Please help me understand this. Thanks

  50. I have taken a hydrocodone on tuesday but i have a UA on Monday i am scared i may come out dirty but im not addicted i jus have bad back pain an no insurance. Will i become clean by then?

  51. T,

    I’ve had similar problems with that one & klonopin. I take 10/325 for cancer. The other for insomnia. The Klon wasn’t showing yet I was taking. Sometimes the hydrocodone wasn’t showing yet I was taking. It turns out, klonopin will not metabolize like other benzos so testing for that in urine is worthless at this date so a blood test is needed as half the pop will test negative. A lot of doctors don’t seem to know it. Mine does now. As for the hydro, that depends on your body & each body is different. Do you notice it tends to help your pain rather quickly yet won’t last too long?

    Best thing you can do is write the time down when you take the med & take it 3 hours before you know you will be tested just to make them happy. It is more likely to show in their primitive testing at 3 hrs after. Peak is 6 hrs but for someone like you or me our systems seem to be pushing it out a lot faster which means 3 hrs. It means it might not be detectable in our systems at 6 hrs so be sure to time it so if appt is 2pm, test 2:30p, you took that last one at 11:30a aprox. Many of us are getting blamed for very strange things. I’m over 50. I’ve never done an illegal drug in my life. I take my meds right & I don’t drink. I’ve never had any addiction problem & have a real medical problem needing various meds yet I always feel as if am being accused of something wrong. I don’t like it at all. I’m close to getting an attorney and am working on a book about this problem.

  52. I take prescription hydrocodone 5/325 and I am tested by urinalysis each month by my doctor. For some reason it’s not showing up and my doctor assumes I am not taking it as prescribed. What can be happening? I take it every 12 hours.

  53. For the last couple months I’ve aquire Norco/hydrocodone, between 5-10 mg. & occasionally 5 mg generic Percocet. I’ve taken no more than 1 a day maybe 4-5 days a week, if available. I have awful joint pain due to arthritis and I also suffer from recently acquired Neuropathy..I’m Hep-C postive, but not chronic. Will that hinder a clean urine? I need to test clean on urine test in 7 days. I intend to have a serious discussion with my long time physican about any options I have. I take the addiction I have with opiates extremely serious and I am more concerned about a LP lost on you. I just need to get my life back and get a clean urine and keep it that way. Thank you for your time

  67. Hello, My Pain Management doctor has me take a urine test every month. I’ve been taking Hydrocodone/Acetamin 10/325, twice a day. When my urine test came back, my Hydrocodone/Acet showed ‘Negative’ and Hydromorphone ‘Positive’. My doctor thinks that I’m not taking my medication or it is not working, when in truth I am taking it and it is helping minimize my pain. I am not taking Hydromorphone and never have. How can I talk with my doctor about this, I don’t think he believes me anymore and that’s not fair, since trust is so important between doctor and patient. Please help, am at wits end. Thanks for your assistance.

  70. Hi, I need some help and have a couple of questions. I have several things wrong with me and go to pain management. I am prescribed 5mg norcos for three times a day. I have passed all of my urine tests so far. After reading several sources on the internet, it seems hydrocodone is very hard to understand and has a crazy window of detection, that is hard to understand. Some sources say it stays in urine for 2-4 days and others say it can only be detected from 6- 24 hours after use. I don’t understand why there is such a gap. It would be hard to understand how the drug wouldn’t show up only 6 hours after use. It just doesn’t seem accurate. My question is if I took one 5mg norco, which is 5mg of hydrocodone and then 10 hours later, took a urine test ,would I pass? I believe I should, and if so, how much of the drug would be shown in my system? For example, at 5:10 am I took just one 5mg hydrocone and then I had a urine test at 3:00 Pm.It just seems so confusing to me the window of detection times for hydrocodone. Someone please give me honest, truthful and accurate information as possible. I appreciate it! Thank you! Love Kelly!

  72. I normally take 4 30 mg oxycodone every day, down from 10. My medcheck is in 3 days and I’m almost out of oxy because my knee went out and I used a few extra. I have some old hydocodone and want to take 1-3 per day for the next 2 days just to help with withdrawal. Will it show in my urine if I have a test on my appointment day? I also have 1 30mg oxycodone left for the last day/appointment day. I will drink lots of water, too. Also have Xanax. Thanks for reading this, hope u can advise.

  73. I take 7.5 mg of hydrocodone(also has acetaminophen 325 mg) after dinner every day as prescribed by my doctor.Di you think I will flunk a drug test for Amazon for a job I’m trying to get? Thanks…

    1. Hi Dianne. You can report that you are on the medication and provide a doctor’s note confirming that before the drug test is performed. They usually ask you whether you are on any medications anyway. You are OK as long as you are not abusing the medication – which you are not since it’s prescribed.

      Good luck with getting your news job!

  74. Hi I took 4 7.5 and 2 3.5 vics today and I have a ua Thursday I am around 125-130 lbs and I don’t sweat much naturally how long will it take for me to be clean for my ua?

  75. I will have two take a hair test that is typical a 90 day test, I took about two 5mg and one 10 5mg lorcett in one Saturday night, I never take them, but have to take a test in about two a a half months,for a really good job,with two or three pills show up..

  76. My doctor requires regular urine testing to make sure my prescribed vicodin 10/325 Norco is in my system. He informed me that I tested NEGATIVE last month.
    My question is this:
    How SOON after taking vicodin is it visible in urine tests?
    If the medication was taken only a couple (2 hrs) hours before the urine test, will it show up?
    ALSO: How often are urine drug tests incorrect? Is there a percentage for how often there are false negatives or positives?

    Thank you for your help!

  77. Hi,
    Took a 5/325 Hydrocodone tablet for pain at 11pm on a Saturday night and was randomly drug tested on Monday morning at 1130 a.m, Will i come up positive?

  78. I took 3 norco 10s on Tuesday. I have a probation urine test on Friday. I use to be a heavy user and last week did a system flush with a quick flush system. Do you think these three pills will show up in test? Last one was at 730 Tuesday evening and test around 10 or so Friday morning

  79. I have a prescription for Hydrocodone for chronic back pain. I have to go in to see the Dr to take a urine test to be able to keep getting my prescription. I try to only take them when I am having pain because I don’t want my tolerance to go up so that they remain effective without having to take more. If I am having a really bad day, I will take 1 1/2, but usually only take 1 every 8 hrs. My concern is that when I go in for a urine test, I want to make sure they can see that I am taking them and not selling them. If I take one the day of the test, will they be able to detect it? Thanks, John

I said I will be right . She said the soonest will be 22nd. But that will be 5 and a half days, and it wont show . I go in on teh 22nd, and on the 13th of this month 9 days before my next appointment doc says no norco in urine I wont write you. He said Noprco shows for 10 days. WHAT? I tol;d him no it does not, just refer me to pain doc please, but now I have researched this, and I am going to give him one more chance. He is guilty of several things. BUT is there something I am missing? DOES it show for 10 Days???

However I was prescribed hydrocodone 4 days prior to the drug test for a dnc procedure I had. Therefore my drug test came up positive for hydrocodone and was sent away to a lab. Fortunately I did have a legit prescription for the hydrocodone but my concern is that with further testing in a lab the methadone show up. This is my question to you. Will the methadone show up even if it didn’t show on urine test??? I really need this job! Thsnk you

  93. I take hydrcodone 5/325 twice a day for pain. With the weather change i started taking more. I ran out of my meds 2 weeks early and ended up having a random saliva test that said i had no levels of my meds. Could it be out of my system or could it be because it was a saliva test

  94. I take norco off and on ..I have taken 10 in past two days. I have a urine drug screen done my mass spectrometer in 5 days. Will it show up.

  95. I accidentally took cough syrup with hydrocodone and had to take a drug test 40 hours later, it was a urine drug test, I am currently on oxycodone and I am wondering if it will show up

  97. I might have a urine test for work Monday… I snorted five hydros 7.5 mg …and today may do the same…Monday afternoon would hydro show up on my test if I drink tons of water on Sunday and Monday and don’t touch any those two days?

  98. Short and simple here but I have a drug test on Monday the 5th of December. I snorted a half of a hydro 7.5 today around 11:30am. This was the first one in WEEKS that I’ve had… My question is will this be out of my system before Monday since I didn’t take it orally? And if it’s not is there anyway to get it out of my system by then? Since I’m not prescribed hydros the judge won’t be pleased if it’s seen in my system.

  99. If I took 20 mgs of hydrocodone in the last 24 hours how long will it take to pass a UA? I am 41yrs old and weigh about 160pounds.

  105. Hi! Does a urine test specify whether hydrocodone or dilauded was injested or do both drugs show up positive for hydromorphone and doesn’t specify whether it’s hydrocodone or dilauded.Thanks for your help!

  106. When given a urine test,will the test be able to decipher whether it was hydrocodone or dilauded that was ingested?I’m aware both drugs metabolize as hydromorphone.thanks 😊

  107. Hi! I am going to my pain clinic this evening and I’m a little worried. I was aching so badly that I took my hydrocodone a couple of nights when I shouldn’t have so that made me short this month. I took one at 6:00 this morning. I was thinking of taking 2 at 10:00 or 11:00 this morning so it will show up on my urine test this evening at 3:00? I need for it to show up so they will know I’m taking them correctly. Thank you so much.

  108. I don’t take pills but I just had dental work done and I have a hydro 10mg. I have a drug test Wednesday at 10:30am for a job. Will I pass?

  109. I had a hair folicle test done yesterday 10/25 I did one hydrocodone on August 8th will it show up on the hair folicle test.

  110. Okay guys to those of you wondering if hydrocodone will show up on a urine test here is my story. two days ago i took 10mg of hydrocodone and was worried it will show up in a 6 panel dip stick urine test. I first bought a urine test at walmart and i came up negative. i decided to test myself because my freedom depends on it. If i failed the home test kit i would have made sure i had an accident and drove off the road without involving innocent people in the scheme. Its that serious lol. Anyways when i took the 6 panel dipstick urine test at pre trial services i PASSED! i think there is alot of confusion about the detectable times and i believe i know why. When you research online i have found different time frames because NOBODY discloses the specific test given. what i mean is that if your only taking a 6 panel dip stick test without it being sent to a lab you will PASS if 48 hours have lapsed. Now that being said if that urine sample was sent out to a lab im sure you will FAIL because a lab is more extensive in testing. I dont know about the saying that hydrocodone is not an opiate it is an opiod argument so it will not show up. my feeling is that to be safe assume it is an opiate. I cannot gaurantee my claims will be true for you but it was for me. Again if you know the urine wont be sent to a lab you will be fine in 48 hours. I recomend buying a at home test to be sure if your freedom depends on it because if you fail that then make sure you dont even take the test somehow.

  111. I took 3 10/325 narcos on monday 9-30 at 2pm i have a drug test on 10-5 at 8:15am will i pass i havent taken them in months

  112. Hello! My sister have me, what I thought was a Tylenol, but it was acetaminophen/hydrocodone 5/325 for my migraine. How long does this drug stay in the system/urine? She gave this to me on a Thursday morning, would I be clean a week later?

  113. My 14 year old daughter had complications from surgery and uses tramadol and vicodin for pain. She always takes 2 tramadol avday, ALWAYS, sometimes three. And vicodin she is allowed one a day but only takes it when she really needs it. She last had vicodin when she was in the hospital on Friday, so three days ago. But today at her dr, her drug test came back negative. That’s not even possible as she really takes her medicine. So now her urine test gets sent out for further tests. My question is one, HOW does she possibly have a negative test? And two, will the test they are sending out detect her medicine and show she is taking her medicine, so we will be able to get her prescriptions? I’m stressing bc I don’t understand how this even happened,

  114. If I took 5mg of hydrocodone only once how will it show up on a hair drug test? Can they tell it was used once or will it just show I used it and they can interrupt it as abuse? I took it once for pain now I have to go for a pre employment drug screen

  115. I took one of my wife’s hydro codons pills 5mg I believe. The first time I ever took one in over 20 yrs for pain. It was taken 8 hrs ago will this show up on a pre employment drug screen after 24 hours?

  116. I have a script for hydrocodone 10mg/500 I take as needed. I recently had to take a urine test for my doctor. I had taken one the night before and that morning. My appt. Was 12:30 when I took the urine test it didn’t show anything. I explained to her I had taken them she refused to write any more scripts for this reason. She didnt believe I was taking them. I was very ill and have a very high tolerance to medication. Could this be a factor? I honestly don’t abuse or sell my medication. Why did this not show on my urine test?

  117. I am prescribed from Pain Management Center norco 7.5/325 2 times a day for 30 days for bulging disk and herniated disk. I don’t need to take it twice a day everyday but there comes a time when my appointment is coming up and I sometimes get dropped to see that I’m taking the right dose so they could continue prescribing the strength and quantity. there for 5 days before every appointment I stick to the prescribed agreement and never been flagged for not following doctors order. My question is how many days before appointment should I take this medicine to be on the safe side in case they want to collect urin to check on my levels in order to continue treating me?

  118. I HAVE BEEN ON NORCO 10/325 FOR YEARS. RECENTLY SHE LEFT AND ANOTHER DOCTOR TOOK OVER. THIS DOCTOR SENT TO PAIN MANAGEMENT AND HE ORDERED ME ZOHYDRO ER 30MG AND 2 10/325 TO TAKE IN BETWEEN. THIS IS THE SAME DOSAGE BECAUSE I WAS TAKING 8 NORCO A DAY, SO I STILL HAVE 80MG A DAY. MY QUESTION IS, HOW DO THE LEVELS WORK. IN A DRUG TEST. I KNOW THE ZOHYDRO IS TIME RELEASED SO HOW WOULD THE DOCTOR KNOW HOW MUCH HYDROCODONE I HAVE IN MY SYSTEM. IF I TOOK LESS THEN THE 80MG A DAY, WOULD THE LEVEL BE DIFFERENT AND WOULD HE KNOW I TOOK LESS AND ALSO WOULD THE HYDRO/APAP AND THE ZOHYDRO BOTH SHOW UP AS HYDROCODONE OR WOULD THE ZOHYDRO SHOW UP SOMETHING DIFFERENT. THANK YOU

  119. I don’t take hydrocodone everyday but I took one 5 mg 30 min to an hour before urine test and it did not show up can you explain why

  120. I haven’t taken any hydrocodone in 5 days. I was prescribed it for the previous 7-8 years but only took 1-2 -10mg tablets as needed for pain. naturally I had some saved and was taking them as needed for pain. Is this still detectable if I’m urine screened for a new job? Mostly what I’m reading is the longest detection times are 1-6 days after the last dose.

  121. How did hydrocodone after one dose in hospital show up in my urine ten days later I can’t take this drug makes me very sick doctor gave me wrong medicine and now they say it showed up ten days later how is that possible

  122. Hi my name is pamela i have been having gum surgery for past 2 months i was given norco 10/325 i probably took a total of 16 a month so total of 32 in a 60 day period i still have over 50 left which i flush anyways i have a real good job offer and i was told they do hair testing . im wondering if the norco is in my hair and how i can get it out. Or should i just be honest about my gum surgery. I still would like to know how long it would stay in my hair and if theres something i could do to get it out .Thanks, Pamela.

  123. I recently had neck surgery. I took my prescribed hydrocodone with acetaminophen 10 325 tablets. I took 1 tablet Monday night before bed, 1 Tuesday night before bed, and one Wednesday before a drug test via blood. Will it show up?

  124. I have a question I hope you can answer I took one hydracodone pill about 4 days ago I have to take a toenail drugtest in 10 days will it show up

  125. I took three Lortab 7.5s Sunday the third one between 6-7:00. I have a urine test Wednesday morning. Will they show in the test?

  126. I donot know where some people get their misinformation. NO doctor, drug screen, can determine you are positive because your drug screen indicated you have high level of the medication that you have a RX for in your system. If you have a script for oxyxcodone and you test positive for it, you are NEGATVE regardless of the level as long as you have a valid script. The medication could have peaked in your system right when you peed in the cup. Therefore, abuse can not be determined. Check with any lab toxicologist and they will confirm this. That is why DOT drug screens do not report a level- you are either positive or negative!!!

  127. I am prescribed norco 5/325, 4 per day for fybromyalgia. When I went in this time, I was told I only had trace amounts in my urine on my previous visit. I also have been diagnosed with Sjogren’s (sp?) disease and tardive diskenesia. Between the three, the meds leave me very dry and I consume an average of two gallons of water daily. Could this cause a lower than normal urine showing of the hydrocodone?

  128. I got a really bad sunburn this week on my back, butt and legs. My mother in law gave me two 5mg pills of hydrocodone today ( July 1st) to help with the pain bc it was so bad I couldn’t even sit down without crying. If I have urinalysis on Wednesday will I be OK? I’m 5’3 and 125 pounds

  129. I took a half of a pull it was 7.5-325 hydrocod/actem

  130. I took 2-10mg hydrocordone yesterday at 9am…i have a test at 530-6pm tonight. Will it be detected in my urine? Especially if I work out twice today?

  131. I hurt my back at work this past Tuesday morning and my husband offered me one of his vicodins. I only took a half of one of his pills (a whole one is 10-325MG). I unexpectedly was offered a job I had applied for sometime ago Wednesday. They are requiring me to take a urine screen by this Saturday. This was a one time thing, there’s no long term use. Do I need to be worried about it showing up on this urine test?

  132. I have taken this rx for sometime and recently had lab work done which is re we uired by law i have no problem with that.
    What. Was strange is i had taken it about an hour before my appt. And it did not show up in urine test.
    Thus causing embarrassment and futher lab work.
    To prove to my doctor i was indeed taking this med. Along
    With all my other meds.
    Please tell me what could have gone haywire

  133. If 6675 milligrams of hydrocodone and 4040 milligrams of hydromorphone are present in the body after 5 days what does that mean are those high levels

SMH It’s NOT MY FAULT that there’s an epidemic of IDIOTS out there, why should I have to pay ? Every Dr I see look’s at me like a pill seeking drug addict !

  136. I am on Hydro 10’s. I took an old 7.5 today from previous script. Just seeing if I could get by on them. Well I can’t and will take my 10’s tomorrow morning as prescribed. But was just notified I have a UA tomorrow. Will the 7.5 show up too on it? I just don’t want to be ‘kicked out of my dr’s office as they are doing that now for anyone on these types of medications.

  137. I’ve taken one pill 12 days ago and it’s the only pill I’ve taken in Atleast a year for my back and had a pee and hair test today will it show up as a positive detection?

  143. Hey. I put a straw in my mouth. I was playing around with it. blowing in and out. and later i realized it has been used for snorting hydrocodones. will that make my drug test for my probation test positive.? I have to take a test in. 48 hours.?

  144. I have been taking hydrcodone 7.5/325 for 30 days now and have a urine test tomorrow, I take it as prescribed but for the last week I have had severe diarrhea. I have been taking Pepto Bismol and finally Immodium. Will these OTC drugs have an adverse effect on the test? Should I tell the nurse about them? Thanks

  145. I took one 5 milligram hydrocodone and now they want me to have a urine test within the next 48 hours will I pass the test I’m 5-11 200 pounds I also am a veteran and they want to do a urinalysis on me now and I have the prescription but it was from 6-7 months ago. My doctor retired and I didn’t get the new prescription refilled but I still had some left which I would I was taking only when it got where I couldn’t stand the pain no more. So I called and talked to him about getting it refilled and they said I would have to come in and take a urinalysis and I just took a 5 milligram then at 8 o’clock on Monday night and the way the web sites that I’ve seen about hydrocodone stay in your system says 4 days in a urinalysis what are my chances of passing the test

  146. I have been taking hydrocodone 3-325 1 every morning for a year because of a severe auto accident along with fentanyl 75 mg patch every 72 hours. I took a drug screen at doctors office and it came back negative. The doctor accused me of selling my pain medication and will not administer anymore. I never sold or even gave my medication away. I can’t deal with the pain. Why would a test come up negative? The test was completed over 24 hours since my last dose.

  147. Hi. I’m currently attending a pain management clinic. My doc had prescribed Norco 10mg every 12 hours, I don’t like taking pain meds period (doc knows this),use to break in half- but lately my pain has gotten worse so been taking them more than usual because of P.T twice a week (he knows this to). I know this sounds bad but I dont remember if it was last night, or night before since my last dose. My doc gave me a random urine test today, will it still show in extended test if didn’t take this morning? Thanks!

  148. The last time I had lortabs was 10 days ago n they are 7.5/325. I’ve been taking them on and off for about 8 months. They were prescribed to me by my doctor for an injury I sustained to my lower back. My question is since its been 10 days since I’ve had a lortab,and Also that I’ve been taking them over the course of 8 months averaging 1pill every other day can it be detected in a urinalysis?

  149. I have spent the entire day reading EVERY single post on this page and i need to say a few things, first if your taking your pills but you still test negative it is because they are checking your tolerance and the levels that “should” be in your system, say you get prescribed one 10/325 every 12 hours but you take 1 3 hours after your last one they can tell if you are not taking as prescribed and thats why ut would show as negative, Doctors are not stupid and neither are the new urinalisis test they have these days, they can tell if your taking your pills earlier then prescribed they can even tell if you took a norco or a loratab YOU CANNOT beat the new quantum urininalasis test they have these days, they can tell if youve drank to much water and they can tell if you deluted your urine they also test for SG “specific gravity” and urine PH among other things. Now do any of you idiots on here that are abusing pain killers then ask a quistion if youll get caught or not and notice the moderator doesnt answer your question? But answers others with real questions that a addict wouldnt ask? My point is stop abusing pills thats why these urine tests these days cannot be beat is because of all the abusers. I am a pain managment patient and i take pain killers every day “as prescribed on the bottle” and thats why i never have a problem when i have a urine test at my pm. Now if all you abusers would take your meds as prescribed then your urine levels would be correct and you wouldnt be here asking questions in the first place, the moderator isnt going to help you get away with abusing your pills and if your not taking them as prescibed then YES your levels will be off and will be given a negative even tho there is some in your system, its testing your levels of what it should be FOR what your prescribed nit just if they can find any in your system, and i would put money on it that 90% of the people asking questions here have been kicked out of there doctors office and reported to the dea because if you abuse narcotic pain meds the dea is notified. Anyways ive said what i had to say.

  152. I recently had a heart attack and I was hospitalized and thoroughly medicated. The next day I was taken into surgery and had a stent put in. There was a problem with the surgery and I ended up with a pseudoaneurysm. I was hospitalized again and pumped full of meds. Not to mention I have 17 different prescriptions that are taken on a daily basis. The cutoff level was 50 nanograms per milliliter I tested it 83 milligrams per milliliter. I would like to know with all the different meds and I had intravenously and taken orally which included hydrocodone at the hospital why would it show up two weeks later in a urinalysis? Is there a reasonable explanation for this? If so, tell me because I was taken off of my pain meds due to a positive test 4 hydrocodone
    The doc tells me that it could not be a false positive because they do a secondary test. Please help!!!

  160. People just keep asking the same questions. If you’re frightened of a drug test, then you’re probably an addict straight out. Don’t know what you wish to hear on this blog anymore….All this blog shows is that denial runs real deep in addiction. Druggies will do and say anything to keep their drug of choice.

  161. I cannot function normally taking prescription narcotic pain medicines i.e.: sleepy, memory, alertness, etc. My pcp put me on the butrans patch 10, then 15 mcg, and I don’t have any trouble tolerating that (long term lower/mid back; cluster headaches; ibs ~ all worse w/age). I recently had a urinanalysis, and Vicodin showed up. However, I’d not taken Vicodin and have, in fact, a rather severe allergy to it. Approx 9 yrs ago, post-sinus surgery, I took the Vicodin that surgeon prescribed, once arriving home. The result: a call for the squad & hospitalization stay. How is this possible? And, equally as troubling, given 3 uninanalysis’ over the last two months (March & April), differing results came back for all three; all from start to lab=all different labratories, provided 3 different results. As the patient, I don’t have any control over that, and don’t know what to do, or where to turn. The dr no longer wants to prescribe Butrans, but my husband & I have found through research, that I cannot stop the patch abruptly. My pcp sent my to a different dr (addictionologist re: specialty prescription-this n’ that-whatever), and this dr wants my to stay in rehabilitation hosp for 28 days!!! What’s on earth?!?! My pcp also has an addictionologist license. Please advise.

  162. I have a prescription for hydrocodone 5/325 I have only taken 2 pills out of it within the past couple of weeks because I dont like taking pills unless I really really need to. I currently am trying to transfer jobs so I will have to take a hair follicle test I was just wondering if this will show up on the test even though I havent taken it constantly and its a low dose.

  163. I need an expert opinion on how long hydrocodone stays in the urine. I have found so many different opinions regarding this issue, and I’m seeing a new pain doc and need an accurate answer. Please help! Thanks in advance

  164. I went to my pain mgmt appt last week and instead of the regular urine test done in the office every 3 months , it was being sent out for therapeutic testing and I had to sign request. I am prescribed 10-325 norcos not to exceed 5 a day, for a total of 150 per monthly Rx. I am 64 years old, weigh 168 lbs, am Diabetic. I have chronic back pain plus have had both shoulders and one knee totally replaced and am facing a second time around shoulder replacement. I try not to take all of prescribed norcos as directed unless the pain is unbearable, especially if I am taking care of my grandchildren, for obvious reasons. Does the therapeutic urine test shows how many pills I take a day? And, if so, for how far back in time. I am worried because last month I underwent an injection under fluoroscopy to my RT shoulder so I even took less norcos during the 10 days afterwards to see if I felt any improvement, which I didn’t. I am afraid that my pain management Dr, who has also been giving me injection blocks to my back and hips , will not give me Rx again for norcos. I have been seeing him for over 2 years. So my main question is can this therapeutic urine test show the discrepancy in how I take my meds. Sometimes I take 2 a day other times I take up to 6 or 7 when the pain gets real bad, thank you.

  165. Hi, so I have a urine drug test for probation on Tuesday at around 3p.m. Today is Sunday. I take them because I have an infected tooth and no insurance. When is the latest I can take a Norco for it to have enough time to be out of my system to pass the urine test?

I have one chance to get into school. Please help! I have been drinking alot of water and haven’t had any for 4 days. How long should I wait to take the test?

  167. Hello, this is urgent! I need help calculating the maximum amount of days it will require 15 norcos taken ocer the course of 48 hours to metabolize out of my body for either a full panel extended opioid urinalysis or a blood test. Please help!!!

  169. Hi my name is Laura and my question is I take 1 10 mg of percosets hydrocodone 2/3 times daily for chronic pain. I’m given 30 days worth monthly so how many days after I take my last dose will this med stay in my system? Now I know everyone matabolises there meds differently so does a 200mcg levothyroxide pill taken once daily or one 10mg ambian at bedtime or 150 mg zoloft once daily interfear in anyway with metabolising or breaking down the hydrocodone does it clear out of my system faster or can these meds cause a faulse negative in a urine tox screen. I need to show a positive urine test for percosets and I’ve had 2 tests come back neg and my refills where given a few days or more late and they tested me 2 months in a row so now the doc has refused all my meds I’m trying to fight this or prove if I can I take my meds all I have is pics of all info on the pill bottle with my meds on the lid that shows I still had a couple left when I was almost due for refills when I was told my test was neg. yes anyway a big fat humiliating embarrassing situation due to the treatment I got from the doc and spoke to me very rude and nasty basically calling me a lier so I need some answers please Thank you

  214. January 19 2016
    Are there any ways to help flush hydrocone out of your system, How many hours does hydrocone stay in your systemm usually.. Thought I couldn’t get an apponitment until January 28 2016, now they decided they made a mistake and gave me an appt this Thursday 21 2016. Chronic pain neurostimulator not helping have to use some pain medication.

  215. I was using hydrocodone as prescribed unti a few months ago for chronic back and leg pain. Hurt my back started using more., went to a rehab in va,, somehow was arrested for forbidden tresspassing. I was in new river valley region jail, going cold turkey off all drugs including clonazepam, prozac, robaxin, gabapentin, ibuprofren, prilosec, chlonidine, amlodopine for 21 days, a felony charge also was included where 3 so called witness lied about my actions. (These felony charges were dropped because the liars(did not shop up in court to testify).
    Anyway there was 21 days before using hydrocodone than I used about 8 -10 hydrocodones 5 to 7.5 and 10s for about a month to now. I’ve read that 8- 24 hours is a life time for hydrocodone.
    Will I be okay if I stop using for 8 to 24 hours before pain management gives me a blood or urine test?

  216. I am going to be urine or blood tested for Hydrocodone in about 24 – 30 hrs by my pain management that wants to start me back on 7.5 325 hydrocodone acetaminiphine but there was a 6 day period from the time my wrist surgery hydrocodone ran out to the time I will be tested and started back on 7.5 hydrocodone. I had been told 3 times that I couldn’t see the pain management dr. until Janurary 28th. They called me today and said I now had an appt in less than 2 days(they had made a mistake by not scheduling my appt sooner). I have been taking 6 -10 hydrocodone/325 acetaminephine or more for about 7 days given to me by a friend. My question is what can I take or drink to flush the drug out of my system as fast as necessary to give a clean sample Thursday around 1:30 to 2:00 pm.
    Thank you in advance
    Bill

  220. I was wondering if a drug test will just show I have hydrocodone in my system, or if it tells how much is in my system?

    If I take 3 the day before my appointment, and one a couple hours before my drug test, is there any way he can tell how many I’ve taken that week?

  221. So i took half of a hydrocodone 7.5mg last night, i have a drug test for work tonight or tomorrow, will it show up on the test?

  222. hi I took a vicodin yesterday at 12 I have been up all night in pain and drinking water and peeing non stop when will it be out says:

    I took a vicodin yesterday at noon I have been up all night. I have been drinking nothing but water when will it be out of my system

  223. I have an ADDICTION e problem but need to take pain meds because of severe health problems….I ran out of my pills early and had some hydrocodone.. I took 30 in 2 days… I have s drug test my next appt in two weeks

    Will it be positive?

  224. I have a question. I have been seeing pain management monthly since August and my urine tests monthly have showed the opiates they have been giving me, until this past Monday. None showed up, which caused all kinds of problems and attitude with the pain nurse and doc. I don’t understand. I have been taking my Norco 10mg every 5-6 hours and for about two weeks, even an extra half of a pill 2-3 hours into every dose because I’ve been in so much more pain in several areas of my back instead of the usual one area at a time that usually hurts. My back/neck has many spinal abnormalities.. my surgeon calls my back a train wreck. Nice. lol Anyways, my question is (because I think since that Thursday before hand that I had a bladder or UT infection) can peeing constantly (no exaggeration, every 10-20 mins) for 5 days including and especially the more of the test cause my meds (even the one I took at 8am on the Monday morning of the UA) not to show up on the urine test. My Adderall XR was the only thing that showed up. Of course they didn’t ask me why I had that in my system. They just jumped to all kinds of conclusions. I do have to say that I had just been switched to this pain doc (same office) because my original one left the practice. So first visit with the new doc and his nurse. He came in hollering at me. I’m like woa.. i tried to tell them that I actually called the main office on Thursday to let someone at my surgeons office (all same building) that the steroid injection isn’t working, the pain feels like it is coming from lower in the back and feels worse than ever. The pain sometimes makes it really hard to walk. The main office asked me why I hadn’t called before this if I was in so much pain? I said I figured I’d just have to wait until my surgery since this didn’t work. So since I had a pain management appt coming up and he works with injections too, the receptionist said he could help me figure out what more was going on. So she moved my appt up by squeezing me in that next Monday. That’s when everything fell apart because the first thing that was done was the urine test and the nurse came in all frazzled and angry.. and judgemental.. asked me only two abrupt questions and left the room. It was a horrible visit with the doc.. I so didn’t not deserve to be treated like that by them or anyone! I did make a complaint with HR.. and he’s known for being like this I guess. HR called me back within a couple of days and had it worked out with my surgeon and another new pain doc to refill my script next week and to see the surgeon this month instead of next month. It is getting worked out.. but still I want to know why my Norco 10mg meds didn’t show up on the urine test causing all of this crap. Any ideas? Please, it’s really bugging me.

  259. Okay, so I had some hydrocodone left over from having some dental procedures done. My doctor, who takes up to 5 days to write a new prescription, wrote my roxicodone to take a 30mg, 4 times a day. These pills are microscopic almost, so cutting them is nearly impossible without crushing half the pill or more. Any ways, did run out of my roxicidone like a day early. So I took 1 hydrocodone. That was prescribed before I started ever seeing this doctor ir did a pain contact. I’ve had 1 back surgery and am classified as failed back surgery syndrome. Yeah the hydrocodone was prescribed for my mouth, not my back but they were mine. I got popped with a random, I told them what I did. Because the doctor was sick, they didn’t know what He might do. I’ve got an appointment this week with him.though so I’ll be sure I explain what and why I did it. I had about a 80 hr time lapse from dose to year y by urine.

Why is that?

  303. I just recently went to my pain management clinic. I am prescribed hydrocodone 10/325. I take them as I am supposed to. But at my appointment, they had me take the mandatory urine test. For some reason the test came back negative. I don’t understand how this could be. I do everything they tell me to. I see every doctor in the building they want me to see, have every test they order to have done, to get to the bottom of what else can be done for this pain. I even get injections that aren’t making a difference so far,if anything, they’ve added more pain. I also am on prescription diuretics from my pcp,that I take daily, so I obviously urinate Alot,and also have a chronic diarrhea problem I take prescription medication for daily also(it slows it down some,but doesn’t stop it completely)so I do have to keep myself pretty well hydrated.. Could either or both of these things effect how the test comes out reading on the hydrocodone at pain management? I am very confused over this negative test,and am fairly new at this,so I don’t understand. If someone could help me understand,I would appreciate it, I have to go back in a couple weeks,and they want to check it again. If it happens to come out negative again, I still will not be able to explain why, even though I am doing everything as I am supposed to. Please help me understand.

  304. Pain dr says I am going to be due for urine test (sends to lab) problem is I took vicodin 10-500 instead of norco 10-325’s do they check the acetaminophen levels? Or should I be ok? Took same dosage just the 500 vs 325 content is different. Any help would be great

  305. To answer two questions. Hydrocodone is very addictive and a tolerance level is easily built up. It is also one over the oppose that is abused most and overdoses are common; especially in chronic pain patients, or use in conjunction with other opioiods and benzodiazepines. The reason for the extensive overdoses is that it is prescribed in post-operative, ER, and by PCP’s. More readily available due to new laws than Oxycontin / Oxycodone, Morphine ((Ms Contin ER), Hydromorphone ((Dillaudid), Fentanyl, and other drugs included but not limited to Midazolam, Methadone.
    Hydrocodone can be taken after taking Suboxone but not after. Serious medical issues can result including death!
    Withdrawal and leaving the system; actually depends and acts differently in each individual. Usually within 24-72 hours of Nausea, Vomiting, Diahrrea, abdominal pain/cramps, weakness,sweating. Drink plenty of fluids take appropriate vitamins recommended by a physician will aid in reducing discomfort. Withdrawal from opiates and benzodiazepines chronic and recreational can result in Seizures, heart arrythmias , and even death resulting. A seizure from Benzodiazepine withdrawal, like Aprazolam can affect the hypothalamus gland increasing body core temperature so high it damages the brain,in chronic addiction. I have seen 1 patient die after this with a core temperature of over 108.00 degrees. Had to due a nasal intubation due to the jaws being locked so tight could not even pry open.

  313. I have been on 5/325 x 6 daily hydrocodone for 6 years. They lowered dosage to 4 a day. Recently I was told I do not have enough metabolites in my system to prove I am taking it as directed. I told them need to take 2 at a time and 1 is not enough. Therefore by the time my apt is every two weeks with u/a there is lower amounts of these so called metabolites. My question is how many metabolites and how long would 3 hydrocodone 5/ 325 stay in system? I do 5 are my medicine on time but need more than directed and now afraid they are going to shut me off rather than up my dosage. I do not understand. 5/325 is mostly aspirin anyway can’t it be part of the problem?

  319. From my experience this is accurate.
    I am 230 lbs and 5’9″ – have some muscle but a lot of fat.
    I took hydrocodone regularly (40mg per day) and as I was quitting I took a 10mg and some codeine cough syrup 9 days before my test. Then, 5 days before my test I relapsed and took 52.5 MG of hydrocodone. After 118 hours of my last dose I passed on a First Check 4 drug test home kit. Then when I went in and took a 12 panel test I passed which was 12 hours (130 hours after last dose) and passed. I didn’t dilute or drink excessive fluids. I drank 4 cups of coffee and one cup of water starting 2 hours prior up until I went to urinate.

    Given my weight range, my lower metabolism and nearly no physical activity I cannot image hydrocodone showing up on a test longer than 5 days.

  320. Why do my urine test read low like having one pill every few days or so even though I take 3 to 4 norco a day is it to do with my other meds that I take which are Lasix and metolazone

  321. I am perscribed 60 mg hydrocodone 10/325 daily for chronic back pain, from my POW years, although i live in constant pain,verified by cat scans and mri s the VA is constantly screwing with veterans that require such meds,and on many occasions get our meds to us late.So i have learned to try not to take all my daily meds,so when they are late, i have some to fall back on. Well it seems that the v a tested me for illeagle drugs and found none in my system,but also asked why i wasnt takeing the hydrocodone.I was shocked,but latter remembered that i had been reduceing my intake.So my question is how much hydrocodone do i need to take and for how long to show i am takeing it regurlarly??Now that the new laws passed involveing this narcotic, they are buckleing down. I would like to get off of it entirely one day,so i am also reduceing my intake for this reason,but i’m not going to tell them that,or they’d reduce my scrip for sure Please email me privately..thankyou so much

  322. I talk large doses of Hydrocodon (60mg per day) and Morphine (75 mg per day) for pain control. I’ve been on the same dosage for over 6 years and it has become much less effective. Also my urine drug screen shows high levels of both drugs for morphine 4884 and Hydrocodon 296. They are marked as high on the drug screen, but I’m not taking additional drugs. Is my body metabolizing these more efficiently and could that be why they are less effective? I’ve been trying for several years to get an increase in these medications, but to no avail. I’ve lost 10% of my function a year over the last 3 years and constantly think of suicide due to the poorly managed pain, but when I had kidney failure the same dosage was effective in managing the pain.

  323. Hi Lily. The elimination time depends on many factors, plus you have to take into consideration what are the other medications. Talk to a pharmacist at the local pharmacy, just to be safe.

  324. If I’ve drank ,6 16ounces of water I have urinalysis in the morning at 9:30 10:30 am this morning I took 20 milligrams of hydrocodone will it show up

  325. Hello so I took 3 10\325s.How long is the active ingredients at work.Is it only 4 hours.I take other meds.And I’m a very caution.

  326. I take hydrocodone 10/325 last month when I went to see my Dr, he gave me two months worth and said he would see me in December on the 29th. My dilemma is, is that the first months prescription I got late because I only get my disability check once a month. So I started taking them when I bought them. I get my other refill on the 3rd of December. My question is since I started taking them late and soon to start on another refill when it’s time to go back to see my Dr, and he gives me a urine test, will I have a positive result? I can’t afford to lose my Hydros, because I suffer with chronic back pain and fibromyalgia along with a bulging disc. I just wanted to make sure that I would be okay. Thank you for your advice.

  327. I guess im getting busted bc I have five days to a u a.Just wondered am a chronic user.20 hydrocodone in 4 days.My levels is the concern.For two a day.Instructed per day.Metobolized level.Can the liver dispose of in this time frame to level out.

  328. My question is I had 2 leftover hydrocodone 7.5/200 I was perscribed in February of this year I took both of them this morning (wednessday) around 11:00 am and now I have found out I have a pre employment ua I have to take at 9:30 am Friday morning I still have the prescription bottle but I have no medication left. If I fail the drug test would my empty prescription bottle still count?

  329. Kimberly,
    Have you eaten poppy seeds, taking any cough medicine with dextromathoraphan, or been on antibiotics such as cipro or levaquin? All of those things can make you test positive

  330. I tested positive for excessive amounts of hydrocodiene. I am allergic to it. I did take it several months ago, why would it show up as massive amounts now? I haven’t taken it since February.

  331. Todd. I think you will be OK. Like I said half life has it out of your system in 5 days. That’s kinda cutting it close but all the literature says 3-5 days. Hydrocodone really doesn’t stay in your system for long. If you are really worried tell them you have taken cough medicine with dextramathoraphan in it (like Vicks 44). That ingredient is know to cause false positives

  332. Hi I have taken two 7.5mg percacets for a week straight with last one I took was 4 days ago. Will I pass a urine screen tomorrow with it being my fifth day clean??? Kind of worried about a job I need to get and the interview is tomorrow. Thanks.

  333. Paige. You should be fine. Hydrocodone is out of your system in 3 days. Since you only took the two small doses probably even less than that. Like 25 hours based on its half-life

  334. I took half a 10 mg hydro condone Tylenol mix at 3 pm Wednesday. The other half at 5 pm. Never taken it before. Drank lots of Gatorade and water to speed up the process. I took a pre employment drug test at 11 am Friday. I weigh 140 lbs. what are the chances that I failed?

  335. I have a question. Here’s some background on my situation. On Wednesday at 3 pm I took half of a 10 mg hydrocodone Tylenol mix. At 5, I took the other half. I have never taken this before this instance. I went for a laboratory (routine) drug test for pre employment Friday at 11 am of that same week. About 41 hours after taking it. I drank extra water and some Gatorade to help speed up the process. I weigh 140 lbs. my question is, what are the chances of me failing this drug test? Again, first time taking it. 41 hours later. Drank Gatorade and water to help. Please let me know I really need this job!!! Thanks!

  336. I took 1 hydrocodone pill 8 days before a hair 5 panel drug test. I am not a frequent user. Will it show up on the panel?

  337. I have been going to a pain clinic for a year. Unfortunately, last month when I was randomly screened (urine) the test came back negative for hydrocodone. I was given a half rose of what I previously had been given with instructions to return in two weeks for a repeat screen. Since I was given half the number of pills I was trying toake them last. I took one 20mg around midnight and a second one at about 3:30 am. My appointment was at 1:30. I was told its still negative. But they will send specimen yo an independent lab.

    I don’t understand why it didn’t show up? Also this independent lab has the capability of testing half life. Shouldn’t they be able to detect the med?

    Thank you

  338. I have a suboxone appt. @ 9am in the morning.. I took some loritabs today will I be able to pass the urine test they are going to give me at my appt. in the morning??
