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
