Well, I don't have a specific answer for you, but I can tell you that it is mostly metabolized by the liver and has a half-life of 3.8 hours.  It's onset is 10-30 minutes to put that into perspective, with it peaking at 30-60 minutes, and a duration of 4-6 hours.  Good luck with the job.

Thanks I hope 72 hours is long enough.  I'm trying so hard and I'm almost weaned off completely but I hate to screw up this job (my new beginning).  I appriciate your feed back.

No sweat man.  I'd like to think you'd be free and clear of it at that point.  Let us know whether or not you get the job- provided you want it after the interview.

I had a drug test the day after taking about 50 mgs of hydro and it came back clean.  So I think 72 hours should be ok.  But stick around.  Somebody may know for sure.

72 hours is a good number for a clean urine screen. I hope things work out for the job!!
