  • How long does hydromorphone stay in your urine?
Depending on your metabolism, Hydromorphone can stay in your urine for up to 4 days after it has entered the body. It will usually be closer to 2 days, but it could be longer so if you know you will be having a drugs test and should not have the drug in your system, it is best to discontinue usage for 4-5 days prior to the test.
