How long does Vicodin stay in your system

I havew not posted on here for a couple of weeks. I had a small problem with the usage as I was taking 15MG per day. I tapered off completely now but was wondering how long Vicodin stays in your system as far as a drug test like a urine screen,

Pretty sure it's 3 days in a basic urinalysis but it most likely takes months for full body detoxification. I know anxiety meds store in your fat cells but I'm not sure about opiates.

Re: How long does Vicodin stay in your system

even with habitual use opiates generally leave your system within a few days. opiates have a short half-life unlike weed for example which can be detected in the urine up to a month after smoking if your an habitual smoker. if your afraid of getting tested they should have a test kit at most pharmacies that will tell you if it's still in your system. glad you tapered off when you did.

good luck,

Re: How long does Vicodin stay in your system

agent pretty much answered it like it is. Hydrocodone is water-soluble. It doesn't store in your fat like THC (weed). The hydro is pretty much gone from your body within hours. The metabolites can be detected for days. At 15mg/day you could pass a drug test in 2 days - but 3 to be safe.
