how long does hydrocodone stay in your system?


Hydrocodone is a medication that is recommended for the treatment of severe pain, and in few cases as an antitussive agent to relieve chronic coughing. Hydrocodone belongs to the class of semi-synthetic drugs that are synthesized from codeine. Upon intake of hydrocodone, it enhances analgesic effects.

hydrocodone can also induce feelings of euphoria, relaxation, and pleasure. Hence, it has a high potential for abuse and dependence. It is also linked with a rapid onset of tolerance. This results in the development of habituation to this drug and requires regular dosage increases to derive ongoing therapeutic benefit.
