If taking 3-4 Hydrocodone 10/325 per day; if the person stopped today, for how long would the blood test show positive? Any way of decreasing that time?

This is a generic for Vicodin, it contains Hydrocodone and Acetaminophen, the Hydrocodone is a narcotic and narcotics are usually detectable in blood tests for only 6 to 12 hours, after taking them. There is no actual precise time, because it can vary from person to person, depending on their overall health, other medications, length of time they've been taking it and etc.

I really don't know of any safe way to try and alter these times in your blood stream.

If you have a prescription for it, however, all you have to do is inform them of this, when you go in for testing.


Are there any other questions?

Nurse Says:
Pre Employment screens are generally urine tests instead of blood for many reasons like cost and ability to get instant results as opposed to sending blood to a lab and having a nurse on the payroll to do blood draws. In general it take 45-72 hours to test clean (2 to 3) days after taking your last dose. However, if you are prescribed the medication you can take the bottle to prove the prescription is legit and even if you test positive they still have to pass you on the test. You will be ask about prescription meds for this purpose before the screening. Now if this is a job driving heavy machinery or semi even though you pass the test they may exclude you as a potential employee due to hazards and strict state laws on semi drivers and prescription drugs your allowed to take while driving. Unless your Dr. will write you a statement saying you can safely perform your job duties while on narcotic pain killers.

If the test cuts off at 2000 ng/ml with the half life off the drug being 4 hours, then she's not taking enough vicodin/hydrocodone to be detectable on the test they are using.

I was running low on my hydrocodone. I normally take two 10/325mg doses every 6 hours. I took 2 tramadol pills with 1 of my hydrocodone twice a day for several days. The rest were my normal dose. Will the tramadol be visible on my hydrocodone blood level test?
