how long does it take to get percocet out of your system?
Hello!
Hope I would be of great help to you and will try my best to be up to your expectations .

It can take upto 24 hours for the drug to get out of your system.
Its half life is 3.5 -4 hrs . So it may take 16-20 hrs for 98% of drug to get out of your system.
From drug test perspective, it can be detected in blood upto 24 hours since last dose was taken.

Best of luck...Take care.

And it it is long term use?
Even If you have been taking it for too long, still the drug detection time would not exceed 24 hours.

Hello
I substantially disagree with the above expert.
Opiates can be detected up to 4 days in urine.
not 24 plus 48 hours which would be 3 days.

In addition, as to is this out of your system
In terms of withdrawal, you might have symptoms for 2 weeks.
In terms of emotional effects from heavy use, effects for an average of 6 months.
good luck

What is considered of heavy use?
Daily use for a period of time at a medium to high dose
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
How many mg's is considered medium?
3 to 4 grams a day
but this will vary with every individual
as will metabolism

that is why there is a range of 2 to 4 days on urine detection.
You have to assume 4 to be safe.

good luck again

I'm sorry, yes you did answer my questions.

They have already taken it out my account, so I am confused.

That is the deposit

that is the only way we are paid.
you are not charged again unless you accept a second time.
good luck
