Brief Answer:
Relax, you will have cleared it well before the test

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Tylenol 3 contains 30 mg codeine. Half life of codeine is 4 hours XXXXXXX i.e it takes 4 hours time for half of the drug to be eliminated.

Yes, by the above consideration , there will be no codeine in your system when you take the drug test.

Let me know if you have any query

Wishing you best of health

Thanks
