How long does percocet stay in system and what I have to do to get it out the system?

About 8 hours: Oxycodone is opiod in Percocet and it has a half-life of 3.5-4 hours which means that half of it will be eliminated in that time so theoretically unless you ingested more you are usually free of the Percocet about 8 hours after ingestion. You might help get it out faster by drinking water because it is excreted by urine (19% unchanged).

Blood levels of all three are undetectable after 2-3 days under ordinary metabolism and an intact p450 enzyme system.

How long does it take for 10mg 325 percocet to get out of your system?

See below: It can be detected in a urine drug screen for up to a week. I assume you are asking because the Percocet is not prescribed to you. It is very dangerous to use narcotics that are not prescribed to you. Respiratory failure and death can occur.

After giving birth I was prescribed percocet, how long does it take to get out of your system when breastfeeding. How far back does a oral test go?

After giving birth I was prescribed percocet, how long does it take to get out of your system when breastfeeding. How far back does a oral test go?

12 hrs approx: At 3-4 hours the drug is considered 1/2 gone. At 12 hours it's going to be almost all the way gone. It's so very common for women to have a cesarean section or perineal repair following delivery that requires a narcotic to help with pain. In terms of how long blood test will be positive for narcotic, it's around 36-48 hours. Hope that helps.

For what length of time do percocets 10mg stay in your system?

For what length of time do percocets 10mg stay in your system?

Half life: Half of the Percocet can be out of your body in about 4-5 hours, but the other half is still there. 3 to 4 days might be reasonable to expect it to be cleared. If you are thinking in terms of a drug test, I would not trust these #s to show you clear. It may be found in even smaller amounts.

Stopped Percocet 5mg 48hrs ago. Is it OK to take my Xanax (alprazolam) before my flight? Know I shouldn't combine the two so is Percocet out of my system?

Stopped Percocet 5mg 48hrs ago. Is it OK to take my Xanax (alprazolam) before my flight? Know I shouldn't combine the two so is Percocet out of my system?

Ask your doctor: It takes Percocet 4-5 days to be out of your system (non-detected on urine drug screening). You should ask your doctor who knows you if it is safe to take your xanax (alprazolam) before your flight. If your doctor gives you the green light, just keep in mind that you could experience some added drowsiness. Talk about starting with half your usual dose. You can always take the other half later if needed.

Can I pass a drug test with percocets in my system. I am suppose to be taking oxycontin I take oxycontin 20mg but im out so I am taking percocets 10/325

Can I pass a drug test with percocets in my system. I am suppose to be taking oxycontin I take oxycontin 20mg but im out so I am taking percocets 10/325

If you have Rx: People who are on prescribed opioids can legally take them, and unless you are a bus driver or in some other safety-sensitive position, employers have no right to take any action if you are taking medications as prescribed. Drug tests cannot tell the difference between the oxycodone in Oxycontin and the oxycodone in percocet.

I took a Percocet Tuesday night. I threw up about 30 minutes later. I have a drug test tomorrow, Friday. Will it be out of my system?

Short answer NO: Oxycodone can linger in the urine for up to a week. My advice is to not go through with the drug test, or come clean with your (potential) employer and tell them you had some oxycodone.

I'm fighting with addiction but I have been clean but my life's really bad right now I'm having trouble dealing with it so I had a dumb moment and took some Percocets and I have to take a urine test Friday so how can flush my system out plz help?

I'm fighting with addiction but I have been clean but my life's really bad right now I'm having trouble dealing with it so I had a dumb moment and took some Percocets and I have to take a urine test Friday so how can flush my system out plz help?

No way to flush: Unfortunately, while the dose itself may be out of your system by Friday metabolites may not be and there's no way to accelerate that process. The other thing I'd like to mention is that your question on a DOCTORS' forum is not where you should expect someone to give you the answer to "how to beat the system." Those types of boards are elsewhere. Help to avoid taking them again? Yes, here

My drug screen results were negative, why? I take percocet and ativan (lorazepam) on a daily basis, my screen results did not find them in my system. Knowing that I take my meds daily, I cannot understand why they did not show.

Many possiblereasons: Oxycodone may not show up on a drug screen unless the screen is specifically geared to that drug. Ativan (lorazepam) should show up, but it depends on the dose. If you are on a low dose (0.5 mg a day) it may be negative. Also, if you are drinking large amounts of water, it dilutes your urine to where drugs may be below the detection limit of the test.
