Depending on use, dose, sensitivity of the test, and metabolic rate of the person, between 3 and 8 days.
This is a great question. I was 48 hours from date of refill, was rashoning because I was told by my doctor that if I needed too, I could take an additional half. I did so when I attended Physical Therapy for my back. I take 10-325 4 times a day. My prescription is a one month prescription. I called into the doctors office on a Monday to let them know I had one tablet left and needed to have a refill. Wednesday would be 30 days. Told to come in first to sign document in order to get refill. Took half tablet Monday, and other half Tuesday morning. Had a ride take me Wednesday to sign doc since can't drive with back disability. Surprise urine test first time in 9 months. Friday was told my urine was clean and that the doctor was dropping me as patient. I was stunned. After further inquirery, they said if I took it Tuesday it should be in my urine Wednesday. I explained it was only half tab taken last 2 days... they were told I was down to last one.
So, if I took half a tab Monday, and half a tab at 7am Tuesday and tested at 11am Wednesday... why didn't it show? I have never had such a problem in the 25 years I have been on pain meds for my back. They said they know I didn't tamper with urine... they indicated I wasn't really taking them. It was odd that it happened after my last visit with the doctor in which I spoke to him about his inappropriate remarks.
It is detectable on an average of 3-5 days so you should be ok. Drinking water doesnt flush drugs from your system though-only time will do so. Drinking water will only flush electrolytes out of your body. If your urine is too dilute, some places wont take it as an adequate specimen.
