Customer Question
If I take 2...

If I take 2 10/500 Hydrocodone a day for I month. Will my level be within the 2000 ng cut off level? I am 5-9 280 lbs.

Doctor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I took a drug screen 2 days ago and tested postive for opiates. They are sending it to the lab for confirmation.

Hello

Hydrocodone is usually not tested for on standard panels [5 and 10.}

In any case, any positive will be sent to GC/MS confirmation.

this will identify what you are positive for.

You are already positive, the question is what they find. If you have only taken hydrocodone, then they have tested specifically for that in a custom panel.

As far as the actual level, that is not predictable just based on height and weight.

There are many more factors involved, metabolic rate, any other medications, etc.

If this is a prescribed drug, I don't think you have a concern.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
