I wanted to know if hydrocodone could show a positive result

Customer Question

I wanted to know if hydrocodone could show a positive result under the MOP category on a urinalysis

This is Dr. David

hydrocodone can metabolize into hydromorphone in the body

hydromorphone may be excreted in urine at concentrations up to 2.5% of the morphine concentration

so there can be a tiny amount of morphine in the urine with hydrocodone use.

urinalysis is different from a urine tox screen test which looks for morphine or MOP

is a good article

hydrocodone and morphine can be detected for up to 3 days after use in the urine.
