Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Yes, there is possibility that it can show up in your urine test.
Percocet contains combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen.
After single dose of administration, around 8 to 14% of oxycodone will be excreted in urine in first 24 hours.
And around 90 to 100% of acetaminophen will be excreted in urine in 24 hours.
For complete elimination of percocet it may take 3 to 5 days.
In case of repeated usage, the period of elimination may be more.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.
