Hello and hope you are doing well.

Chronic pain is responsive to hydrocodone and to provide a concrete evidence that you are using this medication you can have a urine drug screen done. In regular users this screen should remain positive for two days. Also please ask your doctor or enquire at the lab, if they are using a hydrocodone specific product for screening, as the more common opiod screening for morphiods does not detect hydrocodone presence. Emphasize for the specific test.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

If you have taken the medicine, they will show up on he urine test. The only way the test will be.....negative,  is if you do not take the meds.

Good luck
