View Full Version : 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.

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,

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.

ive took hydro the day before a drug test and passed so it is gone in a few hours.it helps to sweat alot and drink water if you are worried about it.good luck-spark
