If you are not on any other medication and have only taken one 8mg dilaudid. How long will it be traceable in your system?

It would depend on what tests were used to check for opiates. UA, blood, or hair follicle. Anywhere from 4-7 days up to 90 days, depending. Other factors do play a role. So it's not an exact science yet.

it depends on how much you are taking they make a Dilaudid that is long acting and if I am not mistaken that version is long acting and once taken can last up to 12 hours other forms vary I was on 4mg it is taken orally and it lasts 3-4 hours depending on the person, its also made in an 8mg tablet it lasted me 3-4 hours of course you have to take into account I have 4 broken areas in my back and also have other Chronic pain, short acting lasts usually 3-4 hours and depending on who it is and how long they have used the drug (with me for instance it was 4 hours at best,
I took the drug for a year I must say that I am intollerant to so many pain medications it was not the most effective drug that I have ever used if you have other concerns about this medication the best person to discuss this with would be the doctor who prescribes this he see's the full picture and can answer things that it would not be safe for me to do I want the very best for you if you have only taken one dose it depends on how large a dose that you took if you do not repeat this chances are if you have normal kidney and liver function this should leave the system in a 6-8 hour time frame thats just to be on the safe side this is a potent and very highly addictive drug I wish you the very best if you have further questions I will do my best to answer as honestly as possible
