Question: Percocets in a urine screen

 staceylynn - Thu Feb 03, 2005 9:59 am

I take drug tests for the probation department in my town. When I take a drug test I would like to know if Percocets will show up. If they do, how long before they get out of my system and what would they show up as?

User avatar Hi staceylynn,
Percocet is classified as an opiate. Many factors unique to the individual such as age, weight, metabolic rate, overall health, chronic use, places drug clearance at a higher range. According to most drug clearance time charts it's 2-3 days, dependent on the above factors.
