Brief Answer:
half life is 3.8 =/- .3 hours

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Lorcet 10 (hydrocodone) has a half life of 3.8 +/- 0.3 hours.

It takes approximately 3 to 4 half lives for a drug to mostly eliminated from the system but this can vary from one person to the next. This means that it would take approximately 10.5 to 16.4 hours for most of it to be removed.

Despite this half life, drug test can potentially detect lorecet in urine 2 to 4 days after the last dose is taken because they can detect very very small amounts.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any to ask any other questions

I had an UTI and was told Niacin would help it go away. I had no money and had this at home so I took one 500mg cap a day and drank plenty on water for 7 days. I ended up getting a random drug test and the results said my creatinine was too low. Iddidn t even know what that was but they assume I tried deputing my urine and that s not the case. I told them this stuff was the only thing I have ingested, so.. I have 2 questions.. Does Niacin help with UTIs? Also could niacin make my urine test results on creatinine levels occur that way. I m curious and scared and could really use answers, and from someone who for sure knows the right answer.
