Acetaminophen: Not because these medications could be found over the counter means they are safe. Please contact your physician as i feel the dose of the medications could be wrong or excessive. Overdose with these medications can be very serious or fatal. The time these medications stay in your system depend on age, weight , liver condition, and other medications. I would estimate at least 18-24 hours. ...Read more

How long does Hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5/3.25 stay in your system. Been off for 4 days. Have to take a urine test.

Hydrocodone 20 hrs: In general, 97% of a 10mg dose of hydrocodone would be eliminated after 20 hours. In addition, 97% of 325mg of acetaminophen would be eliminated after 15 hours. This applies to a healthy person with normal kidney and liver function. Each urine drug test has a different lower limit of detection. Some detect drug metabolites of the hydrocodone, such as hydromorphone which lasts 2-4 days. ...Read more

For how long does hydrocodone/acetaminophen last?

Last??: For pain, the useful period is generally 3-4 hours. If you mean how long does it stay in the body, it is rapidly metabolized and is only in the bloodstream in that form for a couple hours, is metabolized to Codeine and morphine, and those metabolites can last a day or two and be detected in urine, but they are not producing much activity, same with the tylenol in it. ...Read more
