    It sure will show up. It is an opiate. I think a safe time for it to be fully out of your system would be a few days. Maybe lots of fluid can help dilute your piss enough, there's a pretty high testing point for opiates.

    I can tell you from experience that it will show up on a 5 panel drug test. Back in high school I was tested at home and the only opiate/opioid I had been using was hydrocodone, and I tested positibe for opiates.

    The reason might be that because hydrocodone is metabolized into hydromorphone, and that hydromorphone is structurally similar to morphine, thus causing a positive reading.

    Whether or not the amount you took is significant enough to turn a positive for opiates, I don't know.

    Well here it is a 7 days later and my friend of a friend has not heard anything so he is assuming no news is good news since he still has his job. Which is suprising if they test for hydrocodone because he took one 7.5 24 hours before the drug screen.

    Ok I just had a pre-employment drug screen done. It was a 9 panel spilt specimen test that was sent out from Labcorp. I had taken 3 hydrocodone pills the prior week, with the last pill taken 55 hours prior to the test. I was convinced I would fail. I passed. Now I've researched this and it appears some of these tests are testing for OxyContin/Oxycodone only and that they're testing for impairment levels, not therapeutic levels. There is an argument to be made for what constitutes impaired and therapeutic, but in my case either they did only test for high levels or they didn't test at all for hydro or I got it out of my system in 55 hours. Your guess is as good as mine.
