If you are asking how long it takes for a particular drug to get out of your system for any reason other than passing a drug test, call your doctor or pharmacist for that information. If you are concerned about passing a drug test, following is the information you need. If you are taking a drug that has been prescribed for you, all you have to do is take your prescription with you to the drug test and there should be no problem. If you are taking drugs other than those prescribed for you, the best thing we can do for you is encourage you to get any help you need to stop taking them as soon as possible. For information and help, call The National Alcohol and Substance Abuse Information Center hotline at 1-800-784-6776 in the U.S. and 1-215-784-1120 outside the U.S. or visit the NASAIC site at: http://www.addictioncareoptions.com/For more information about employment-related drug screenings, read: "Passing" Those Drug Screeningshttp://www.healthcentral.com/chronic-pain/c/5973/40834/screenings
I searched this question for a reason myself. I do not have a drug issue.
I deal with fibromyalgia and spondlyoarthritis, and I have my own pain medication. I had a severe painful episode this weekend and I took my pain medication, I noticed I felt funky and itchy. I realized I took some of my husbands old vicodin. I wasn't too happy with myself. But pain will do that to you. And whats upsetting for me is I will avoid taking anything if at all possible. I want what I take to work when I really need it. And have no desire to have addictions.
I have to take a drug test for a potential employer. And since it wasn't prescribed for me I can't bring it in. And doubtfully they'd believe me "sure it was an accident". I will certainly bring in my own prescriptions for this test, but uncomfortable about my mistake.
So this inquiry is very important to me. I've taken 1 vicodin by accident.

Hi Vermillion soul – I'm afraid I don't have the information you're looking for. I've heard that such things exist but don't personally know anything about them. I've also heard that they don't always work that well, so I think there may still be a risk. Sorry I can't help you. I hope your pain eases up so you can stop taking the pain meds in time. – Karen
