How long does Vicodin

I have been on different Narcotics over the last 3 years for migraines and neck pain.  I believe that I am now becoming addicted because I find that I will go to ANY length to get them.  I was recently prescribed some Fioricet (15 tabs), which I took over 2 days.  I was then able to get a hold of some Vicodin, and I took about 12 tablets in a 24 hour period.  I was just notified at work that there will be a random drug testing, and in case I'm selected, I need to know how long each of these drugs stays in my system?  This is a really BIG scare for me, as I fear losing my job, so I am going to get some HELP immediately!  Thanks for your help today.

I don't know too much about Fioricet except that it contains acetaminiphen as does Vicodin.   Was the Fioricet prescribed by a doctor for you?  Sorry but I don't know how long these meds stay in your system.  Perhaps if you have an RX for the Fioricet, you could use that RX if you are tested.   Vicoden is very addictive - the withdrawral symptoms are horrible as I
have been through them.    Good luck to you.
