Percocet: doesn't stay in the blood long-term. The average "half-life" of Percocet, which means the time it takes the blood to eliminate half of the drug is 4 hours. It takes approximately 6 half lives for a drug to be eliminated from your system.4*6/24= 1 day. It is important to recognize the signs and symptoms of Percocet abuse as early as possible.
