In brief: Three to four days

Hydrocodone depends on metabolism by the liver to be broken down to hydromorphone.
The cyp 450 pathway in the liver is the enzymatic pathway followed. The half life is 3 to 4 ours and it is excreted in the urine by the kidneys. It is not totally our of the body for three to four days.
