Hello Lass,First off is this just routine,or is their some reason of diversion like due you work as a nurse ,and if so,are they checking only you or are you on a Methadone program and all they want to know is there any hydrocodone in yopur system to bebin  with,as same not so bright addicts say that they are on this and that and when they run a urine screen,nothing shows up,even the drug that they say is their drug of choice.finally most urine tests only show the presents of opiates,benodiazepines,cocaaine,anphetamines and not the particulars,just if it an opiate  benzo etc. i hope that helps, P.S a more precise test can be done if they are looking for aparticular  opiate of choice. am example is percocet  or M.s contin  cheers

i think they should be out of your system in about 3 days.  maybe depending how mcuh you take.    but the better question is how do i get off.  there are several ways to approach it.  but i really need to know how many and how often and how you are taking them. (snort, iv, chew or swallow)
