Brief Answer:
No it will just tell you if it is present in your system.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back to HCM. The reason is even if you were taking 100mg, depending on the time your urine test is taken, the concentration will have gone down from the dose you have been taking, and in pharmconetics there is slight difference really between the doses you ask about. And also different people clear the metabolites at different rates, that is why different doses work for people who have similar pain. I hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
Alcohol testing will be fine, but I think that hydrocodone should be too...

Detailed Answer:
Really the hydrocodone should be out of your system in 7 days really, unless you did not excrete it and it stuck around for whatever reason, I would hold your breath on the hydrocodone, I would not worry about the alcohol level, that will be fine by that time.
