Does Hydrocodone and Oxycodone show up the same on a urine test?

They do not both show up as opiates.A separate test is used for each one

Does it matter? Both are legal prescription drugs and the prospective employer would have no right to ask why you were taking one or both. Right?

Edit: I don't mind the thumbs down if I am wrong, but someone tell me WHY I am wrong.

just don't use them for a few days and they will be out of your system for a test.

hydrocodone, oxycodone, and about 10 other opium extracts will all show up as an opiate on drug tests. urine tests test for opiates in general, not specific opiates, except for heroin, which is a synthetic opiate derived from morphine. the word opiate is used to classify any drug derived from opium poppies, and the word opioid denotes"opiate-esque" medicines. in short, the answer to your question is absolutely. oxycodon and hydrocodone, which are complex salts, hence the hydrochloride at the end of the chemical names, leave the system enough to dodge urine or saliva tests in an average of 2-3 days. drinking lots of cranberry juice will flush your system faster as it is a diaretic (makes you need to urinate more) and it helps clear your liver, which processes the hydrocodone into morphine. if its a hair follicle test, you are screwed, but those tests are so expensive it is almost exclusively used in court ordered drug tests. if you get these as a prescription, show proof of prescription to the tester and you will be let off the hook, as it is medicinal. if not, drink a lot of cranberry juice. your best bet is to stay off of them if they arent prescribed, up until your test. if it is sooner than 3 days, just drink a lot of cranberry juice, and good luck either way ^^

Sure do.

yes they will show up as opioates...

Yes and no. Most simple urine tests will just show that you are positive for opiates, as both hydro and oxycodone are opiates. However, a more intensive test will differentiate between the two different types of opiates and if you don't have a script for both, then you will have a problem.
For instance, I go to a pain management doctor, and he prescribes me Percocet(oxycodone mixed with aceteminophen). He gives me a urine test every month to see if I take my medicine (vs. selling it?). The test he gives me is called a 9 panel test and he would get rid of me as a patient if he found vicodin, loritabs, etc in my system and the test he gives me would detect that.
Hope this makes some sense and helps.

Yes, both show up as opiates (pain killers)

A drug test can be so specific that a doctor can see what meds you are taking and how much. An employment drug test only test for classes of drugs, like opiates. A pain management drug test can differentiate between hydrocodone and ocycodone. If you are prescribed one and not the other, and you test positive, you are OUT of the pain management clinic. If you have been taking oxycodone and it is not prescribed for you, you have violated the contract you signed and will be discharged as a patient immediately. If you feel the hydrocodone is not strong enough, you need to speak with your doc and explain WHY it does not help your pain
