It is supposed to: And if the doctor doing the test doesn't know that, he or she shouldn't be ordering tests. Unfortunately, doctors are not trained in med school or residencies about drug testing technology, and few of them really understand the testing. Hydrocodone is metabolized into hydromorphone, so that is what is expected when you do a test for opiates in urine. Ultimately it will find Codeine and morphine.
