You need to worry: More about taking extra pills than you do about getting caught. If you use more than is prescribed, it could be 1) unsafe, leading to sedation, problems driving and 2) you will run out early. Your doctor will know you are taking extra if you consistently run out early. Drug tests are not usually quantitative. The main issue is if your pain management is inadequate, you need to talk to doctor.
