On average, it takes twenty-four hours for a detectable trace of oxycodone to leave the blood. However this figure could be a few hours more or less, depending on the individual.

There are a few factors that determine how long a drug will be traceable in a person's system, which include:

  • weight
  • gender
  • the amount used
  • the metabolic rate of the individual

Therefore, knowing how long it takes for a drug to leave someone's system can is difficult, as it can vary from person to person.

How long will oxycodone show up in a blood test?
The above figure is specifically in regard to blood testing, although other forms of testing can detect oxycodone use over a longer period of time.

  • The most common form of drug screening is urine testing. This method of testing can find traces of oxycodone in the urine for three to four days after it was last used.
  • In the case of saliva testing, oxycodone can be detected anything between one to four days, on average.
  • Hair follicle testing can find the presence of drugs in a person's body for a longer period of time. This method of testing can recognise oxycodone in the hair follicle for up to three months after the drug was last taken.
