Percocet half-life: Plasma half life is 3-5 h (half that of morphine). It takes approximately 6 half lives for a drug to be eliminated from your system. 5*6/24= 1.25 days. The oxycodone will stay in your system for about 1.25 days. Due to its short half-life, Percocet doesn’t stay in the urine long.
You will pass the test, but Percocet is very addictive drug. You should talk to your PCP for more information.
