Both oxycodone and hydrocodone metabolites can be identified in urine or hair drug tests. HOWEVER, many drug test panels do not include the specific tests for these 2 synthetic opiates.

In urine they are detected fro about 3 days. In hair, the drugs can be identified for about 90 days.

do hydrocodone & oxycodone show up separately on the hair test, and what is the best way to eliminate them from your body prior to drug testing.

Expert:  Family Physician replied 5 years ago.
YES - they are identified as different drugs in drug testing (in urine or hair).

TIME is the only way to eliminate the drugs from the body. Despite the claims made by those who promote dozens of products on the web, there is really NO evidence that any of these products are effective in removing any drug from the body.
