do oxycontin and hydrocodone show up as the same thing on a drug screen?

If you take them normally and don't chew them, yes, they will both come up as opiates. If you do chew them they will still show up as opiates, but with a higher amount.

it does depend of the type of screening though...some are far more complex than others, so perhaps just a basic employer screening might just shoe positive for opiods.

oxycontin is a brand name, not a medicine, hydrocodone is what is in oxycontin that actualy makes it work.


Well I was going to offer my 2 cents until I read the responses form yellowkay...and hogle29. I can't and any additional information of value other that most drugs they will test for remain in your system at detectable amounts for 30 days. The value or measurement on the test results do however dissipate as the days pass.

Nice explanation guys.

Everybody is wrong here. Oxycontin is sustained released oxycodone or long lasting Percocet without the Tylenol, Hydrocodone is the opiate that is the main ingredient that is in Vicodin, Lortab, Lorcet & Norco both are derivitives of the codeine molecule and both are synthetic, but hydrocodone is a schedule III narcotic where as oxycodone is a schedule II narcotic and is much stronger mg to mg. Now both will show up as an opiod in a drug test if its a lame drug test like at 7 Eleven, but any professional job or government job will use gas mass specrometry and that will identify the exact molecule that you are testing positive for. Sort of like when the doctor does a strep test to see if your sore throat is infected, first he does a quick check to see if it is strep., then he sees which anti-biotic the strep is sensitive to and identifies which drug resistant strain you have contracted. If it was as simple as a yes or a no then why would the company concern themselves with how much as one answer indicated? If they can know how much then they know how much of what! Blood in the mass spec doesn't lie. Just thought you should have the truth.
