This is Dr. David

yes, if you take a percocet tonight, it should show up on urine tox screening tomorrow

however, I have had patients I know who are taking oxycodone pain pills and their urine tox screening results are negative

and they need more specific urine oxycodone metabolite quantitative testing to show the oxycodone in the urine.

let me know if you have other questions.
