I twisted my ankle badly a few days ago i was in severe pain. I had an old bottle of hydrocodone in the house so it took half of one to relieve the pain. and it felt much better. Over a 2 day period i took one and a half tablets. I dont like to take pain pills thats why i still have the bottle from over 2 years ago. i got a call from a company and will have to take both a hair and urine drug test. Will this small amount show in the test. And yes i know i am stupid for taking them but you dont think when you are hurting.

Why are you stupid for taking a pain killer that was prescribed for you. Don't ever feel bad for relieving pain with a prescribe drug.
I believe that you will test positive for hydrocodone but take the prescription bottle in with you. Wrap your ankle up and explain to the technician what happened. Usually when you have a prescribed med and you explain that this is used very sparingly and only when absolutely needed they will overlook it... Good luck..Dave
