How Long Does Oxycodone Stay in Urine?

I’m not a user of this prescription drug, but I know many people who have been hooked on it, and it’s not a good addiction.  My only daily vice right now is caffeine.

Based on research I found online, the drug is detectable for about 24 hours in blood testing.  If you want the stats based on saliva testing, it’s 1-4 days.  Urine tests will show the drug for 3-4 days, and finally, hair tests will show the drug in your system up to 90 days.

How is Oxycodone Consumed?

First, you need a prescription for this powerful pain killing medication.  It can be foudn in a liquid form, but the most common is a tablet.  It should be consumed with food and it’s advised that plenty of water is consumed as well during use of this medication.

Each patient will be different prescribed doses, but usually the tablets are consumed every 12 hours.  Of course, abusers know zero limits when it comes to this type of stuff and they abuse the crap out of pills like oxycodone.  Some of the side effects of oxycodone are restlessness, sneezing, watery eyes, and the sweats, among others.

The drug is prescribed after morphine for cancer patients because the pain suffered is unbearable at times and very uncomfortable. If you have loved ones who have had cancer, you probably know this. It’s not  a good situation.

People, please don’t abuse this drug.  It’s very potent.  It can ruin your life.
