I am taking perscription cough syrup with codiene and took some hydrocodone recreationally and wondered on a 5 panel saliva test, will they both just show up as an opiate? or is there a differance in the two?

I took co-codomol for tooth ache (dry socket) it's not a good idea as it saps the calcium from your bones and although it relieves the pain it will in time do a lot more damage than good. I have been taking them for a week+ and my swab test showed opiates and amphetamines. Suspended for a full week with pay. They can't tell where the amp an opiates came from in a normal swab test and it has been sent to a lab. I was surprised to find that this is a majorly addictive drug and probably explains the sometimes flu-like symptoms when I no longer need them for pain relief. If they send it to a lab they will be able to tell what it is. I don't think I am gonna be sacked but I think they're gonna tell me I have to stop taking them. If you have been takin something similar and is over the counter or prescription drugs you will be ok. Good luck.

She should be fine. I used to Percocet day before, actually evening before the test and pass urine text next afternoon. Tests have changed now and they can test for various substances but 5 MG of Hydrocodone or Oxycodone is out of your system in 12 hours; that's if you do it once in a while.

On a 5 panel, no. It will only be identified as an "opiate".

I passed a 5 panel saliva test, i am a recreational user of hydrocodone, i took 60 mg 54 hours before my drug test and passed just fine, just to answer any questions on how long it takes to process thru your system i have a slower metabolism and do not exercise regularly, so someone who is in good shape should be able to pass one in 48 hrs

I took a 5/325 mg hydrocodone on Saturday at noon.. Approximately 48 hours later I had to take a saliva test for a job that I was applying for. I wasn't thinking at all that this would show up on a drug test when I took the pill, but now after researching it, I'm worried that I may not get the job. Does anyone have any insight or experience with this type of testing? Thanks!

Fail a Saliva SWAB test? That is 100 hours (give or take) post consumption. A Saliva test would be about 98% likely to test clean after this amount of time.

A urine test, on the other hand,.. is different. If the Urine test is standard panel immunoassay (dip test, where they don't send to lab) -- it would likely NOT test positive due to higher ng/Ml/dL -- But if a urine test where they send to a lab for GC/MS testing your odds drop to something like 50/50, or 60/40.

I wouldn't worry too much about it .. single use of short acting opiates, like hydrocodone, half a short half life and as such after 4+ days are at VERY low levels of drug metabolite in your urine output and EVEN lower or non existent in your blood an saliva.

So Saliva test = Pass for sure.
Blood test = Pass for sure.
Urine test (sent to Lab) = Probably pass, but not as certain.

Good luck,

I wouldn't think so. It has to be a certain level to show positive

No, in 10 days it is impossible for you to test positive from a Saliva based test. Saliva is a good test because it is non invasive and can detect substances that have been VERY recently ingested. However, it has a VERY short period of detection.. similar to a blood test.

If you remember nothing else, remember this:

Saliva tests will detect substances for a period of 1-3 days,.. Beyond 3 days you will NOT test positive for any substance due to the nature of our metabolism.

Generally Saliva will give a positive result for anything that has been ingested in the past 12-36 hours. Past about 36 hours just about every drug will fall below the ng/mL cutoff level to indicate a positive result. This is why Urine testing is used for "punitive" testing such as Courts, Jails, Prisons, Probation, Diversion programs and so on. Urine tests that are sent to a lab which use GC/MS can detect substances for the maximum amount of time possible.

Which is 4-5 days (at most) for opiates,.. 2-4 days for Amphetamines,.. and for THC (Marijuana) up to 40-45 days for the most habitual chronic smokers/users. For an average user of Marijuana a URINE - LAB tested GC/MS sample will test positive for a few weeks.

But this is Saliva -- and is MUCH different. Drug metabolites are only present in your saliva for very short periods of time after use.. so again,.. A Saliva Test sent to a Lab would only result in an average of 12-36 hour detection from time of use -- and at the MOST a 3 day (72 hour) detection (this is uncommon).

So 10 days would 100% of the time result in a clean Saliva test result. 5 Days would result in a Clean Saliva test result.

Take care,

So I took 3½ Vicodins and I could possibly have to take a saliva test in 10 days, will I be clean? Also how come people who ask the questions on here never follow up and say they passed or failed?

Curious how it turned out for your daughter.

I will editorialize now and wonder why on Earth people are being drug tested to work in a grocery store or Wendys flipping burgers?

When this drug testing crap started in the 80's it was for airline pilots, train engineers and truck drivers. Since then it has expanded to basically every frickin job in the US of A.

If anyone ever tells you the "slippery slope" argument is fallacy, here is your proof right here that it exists. I tried to warn people back then that this is what would end up happening. Give up an inch of rights and these fascists will take the WHOLE RIGHT.
