Variable: Endocet is a particular brand of oxycodone, and it comes in different strengths. From what I see in my area (near Providence RI), the 5 mg strength costs about 50 cents per tablet (5 mg oxycodone/325mg tylenol), while the the 10 mg strength (also with 325mg tylenol) costs about a dollar a tablet. There may be other generic forms that cost less, and chains may have $4 generic prescriptions. ...Read more
Many days: If you are a football player (and 41 is a tad old for that), and you are being drug-tested, hydrocodone will stay in urine for 2-3 days, depending on how much you took how often for how long.

If not, STOP and get help stopping if you need it. ...Read more

Depends: If it is one time use - a single dose - it is unlikely to be detected for more than 24-36 hours. If taken regularly for some period of time, it can be detected for 3-4 days, rarely 5. If this is prescribed to you, bring your prescription. If not, you shouldn't be taking it, and I would worry more about whether you have a drug problem than about getting caught. ...Read more
