Question
What's the possibility of me passing a drug test I took recently? So I took half a 80mg OxyContin pill on Sunday at 9am and had a urine test Thursday at 3 pm.

Detailed Answer:
hello.
thanks for the response.
in usual conditions, the effects last 5 days.
so you should be fine.
however, you have taken 80 mg.
in high doses, it can take upto 2 weeks.
so it depends on the metabolism.
if you have been taking plenty of fluids, it's likely to have cleared off.
unfortunately, there is no clear cut yes and no answer to your query . but I think if you have a normal metabolism, it may be in your favor.
best of luck.

Well I only took half of the pill and yes I drank plenty of water the days before the urine test. My metabolism is pretty fast too and I excercise daily. I always take viatmins and I'm pretty healthy when it comes to diet.

But there's no non investigation based method by which I can predict it further.
So we will have to wait and watch .
