How does percocet show up on a urine drug screening test?

This answer was rated:

How long does percocet show up on a urine drug screening test? I'm in the middle of having a cytotec induced miscarriage for a blighted ovum, and I was in so much pain this weekend that I took one percocet a day to make it manageable. (It was so bad I was crying and couldn't get any work done.) The percocet was from a previous prescription for a D&C I had to have done three months ago. At the time, I didn't need to use any of it. Now, I have to do a drug screen for my first job out of college in a week and a half. What should I do? I'm not abusing drugs, I just couldn't handle the pain of the contractions. Please help.

Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. Percocet and other drugs of that type are only detectable for 2-3 days after the last use. You should be fine to test next week. You can always ask your doctor to prescribe some Percocet for you.
