If I have taken hyrdocodone/Acetaminophen 10/500 and have drug test in 1 week, will this be out of my system by then? I have been having migraines and ran out of my normal perscription of sumatriptan. My mom takes hydrocodone and gave me one to take so that I could go to sleep b/c my migraine was so bad.

The Hydrocodone is the relevant medication here that would be detected in a drug test, since it is a narcotic and that range of time would be approximately 4 to 5 days, after last dosing.

There is no way, however, to give a precise time frame, because certain individuating factors are always going to play a role, such as your metabolism, overall health, activity levels, fluid intake and etc.


Is there anything else I can help with?

Hello. I have damage to my Cervical Spine (neck) and my Lumbar (low back) and (left knee) and (both the right and left hip) from being involved in an 18 wheeler accident where I was a predestrian and I had the predestrian "walk-light" right of way. I was hit at a 4 way red light and several people saw the accident. Thank GOD the driver was NOT pulling an attached loaded trailer at the time of the accident. He was driving the FRONT part of the "tractor" as they call it...thus "tractor-trailer" and if he had been pulling a heavy loaded trailer I probably would have died at the scene. I was crossing inside the pedestrian double walk lanes for pedestrians while riding in my small "power chair" not a huge scooter. You know the kind that you see on that commerical from the SCOOTER STORE that's what's called a "power chair".

Anyway (2)Two good samaritains men who said they saw the entire accident waited with me at the scene of the accident until the police and ambulance came to take me to the hospital. The 2 witness who did stay there at the scene pulled me free from under neath the front bumper part of the "tractor" part of the 18 wheeler and they remained there with me.

Needless to say the driver of that 18 wheeler front part of the tractor, fled the scene in the 18 wheeler and then 4 years later into a law suit after hitting me my 2 WEAK SILLY LAWYERS assistance told me over the phone Trucking company's lawyers on the truck company's side who has several locations across the United States told them that nothing can be done legally because the driver of their truck was not supposed to be driving their truck AT THE TIME OF THE ACCIDENT.

How in the world can they get out of that??? How can a judge at a private hearing, say that nothing can be done to the truck company since the company's driver was not supposed to be driving at that the time of the accident? What kind of justice is that...but anyway all is not lost because MY 2 "weak" lawyers assistant told me over the phone that maybe something else can be done to that trucking company, since the lawyers for that trucking company figured out a LOOP HOLE, and maybe my 2 "weak" lawyers might figure out a loop whole also?

But anyway sorry to have sounded off to anyone reading this message post. But back to the subject at hand............ can anyone tell me if Hydrocodne-Acetaminophen 10-500 mg is good or should my pain intervention/pain management doctor put me on a higher dose? He also has me on Morphone 50 mg, he started me out with Hydrocodone/APAP 10-325, and MS Contin (Morphine 15 miligram, then 30 miligrams of MS Contin and then raised the MS Contin (Morphine) to 50 mg of Morphine, and Elavil 50 mg and raised the Elavil to 75 Miligrams.

So, I am now taking Hdydrocodone 10-500 mg (FOR "BREAK THROUGH PAIN"), and MS Contin (Morphine) 50 mgs 1 capsule every 12 hours, and Elavil 75 miligrams before bedtime at night (FOR NEUROPATHIC PAIN, Nerve Damage in both my arms and both of my arms and right leg pain/weakness/nerve damage).

I also have what is called "Severe Chronic Spinal Stenosis" of my spine along with other crap from that terrible accident along with aniexty, depression and post tramatic stress from what happened to me from that 18 wheeler accident. Has anyone had the above combination of medications and if so did it help you with pain? Also, I am about to undergo Surgery "FIRST" on my neck then the neuro-surgeon says he will have me to wait about 3 months then go back into the hospital and he will do a "fusion" on my mid-low-back of my lumbar spine. Please give me your thoughts. Thank You in advance.

Hi, my question is for Verwon. I've noticed that you have been helping people ease their worries & answer their questions to the best of your knowledge, which sound more like facts then an opinion. However, I have came across a few of your earlier replies, dating back to 2009 & 2010 & noticed that u answered other questions on the same topic, saying 48-72 hrs to leave ur system, but in recent responses, including this one, you say 4-5 days. So which is it if you don't mind me asking? Only asking because I took 6 hydrocodone on Saturday & had a UA today, Wednesday but unsure of results. I drank tons of water since the day I took them & more today. I also used the bathroom at least 9 times before my test & hope it came back clean. What's ur educated guess & also can you answer my original question? I do not take them daily but more like once a week. Thank you & ur responses are greatly appreciated.

My boyfriend took a hydrocodone on accident last night thinking it was ibuprofin I had set out for him (I'm prescribe it for IC and endomitriosis) and he was in an accident at work the day before, the reason he is taking the ibuprofin. He went to the doctor today and they had to do a drug screen. It was around 9pm when he took it and it's 6pm the following day: he has a high metabolism, 115lbs and drinks a lost of gatorade. Will he be okay? -Worried girlfriend

To the best of my knowledge, the hydocodone will be out of your system in about 24 hours. HOWEVER, It can still (apparently) be in the urine and blood if your going for a test.
Drink a lot of water, this will help eliminate it faster.
Also, it appears that the more fat cells you have, the longer it will stay in them. Be safe out there.
Best to take at least 3 days with lots of water drinking to be safe, I suppose.
