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.
