Will vicodin, oxycotin 80, and norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) show up as the same thing on standard urine test?

No: Norco (hydrocodone and acetaminophen) and vicodin are the same and are detected by the test for "opiods" which actually assesses for the presence of hydromorphone. Oxycontiin &#40;percocet/Roxy&#41; do not break down to this and a person using these will test negative for opiods. One has to do a test for oxy which usually is looking for the Oxymorphone metabolite. Sounds similar but chemically distinct
