Most narcotics, including Codeine, are detectable in a standard urine test for up to 4 or 5 days, after taking them.

However, if you have a prescription for the medication, you only have to inform them of this, when you go in for the test.

Codeine is a narcotic, so at such high dosages, it may cause side effects, such as: nausea, dizziness, constipation and dry mouth.

More details:


Are there any other questions?

3-5 days. 5 days to be safe. Although often people fall underneath the cutoff level of codeine in about 36 hours. I would give it 5 days though.

I have a drug test for a job on Monday (it is Friday), I took some prometh w/ codeine (my mothers rx) today for an incessant cough... I threw it up about 30 minutes later. Will it show up on the drug test? Should I tell them that I took it, but it wasn't my prescription? Is there anything I can do to get it out of my system sooner?

Never just stop. Slowly decrease the dosage over several days to eliminate the most severe withdrawal symptoms.

I took a drug test today & it read showing that codeine in my urine. I took 1 TYLENOL WITH codeine on Monday 1/21 and the test was done 1/24. Im worried if I still able to pass abd get my job. I told them ive been sick with a cold and tooth pain. I was told the test may read differently by the time it gets to the lab. What should I expect.
