Expert:  Family Physician replied 9 years ago.
If the test that is being done is calibrated to detect hydrocodone (the opiate in Lortab) it will be detected for longer than 24 hours.

There are various sites on the web that sell various things that claim to "clean" or "mask" your urine. These substances can be dangerous AND in some cases can actually cause a negative drug test to be reported as adulterated (tampered) - which has the same legal consequences as a positive test.

If the test is not specific for Lortabs - the test would be negative.

The reality - there is NOTHING that will promise a negative test 24 hours after taking opiates such as Lortab.
