Brief Answer:
weaning should solve it

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
This brand contains an opioid painkiller called Hydrocodon. It is a habit forming drug and may cause severe withdrawal symptom in immediate period of stopping.
So it should be weaned in supervision of a physician. I am still unsure why do you want a drug urine test. Any reasons?
Your drug urine test will be clear of this drug very soon when you have been successfully weaned off it under the care of physician even though you have excessively used it than required.
Take Care!
