Prescribed Norcos for back pain but taking Roxycontins. Will this show up in chemical test?

Hello, How are you? I am prescribed 120 Norcos per month for chronic back pain , but recently have taken 5 Roxycontins [ Oxycodone Hydrocloride]. My question is, I will submit to a chemical test tomorrow. I have a valid prescription for Norco, but will the Oxycodone come up? Are they in the same opiate class? It has been 5 days since I ve taken a Roxy . Thank you.

thanks for your query.
Yes both NORCOS and ROXYCONTINS are opioid analgesics. Be careful if you are alcoholic or having liver disease.
Take Care!
