Vicodin is a class 3 narcotic, with hydrocodone. Percocet is a class 2 narcotic with oxycodone, which is a much stronger narcotic derivative. The risk of addiction varies with the dosage (small), with the length of time the drug is used and the personality of the patient.

Can you test the difference between heroin and vicodin?

Yes, heroin and hydrocodone (Vicodin) are sufficiently different that they can be easily distinguished with appropriate techniques. Even simply immunoassay drug tests can distinguish between these compounds. For determining whether a drug sample (i.e. powder) contains either of these compounds, a reagent test (which can be purchased online) can give a tentative identification. However, these simple tests are prone to error. Consequently, positive identification is best made by a laboratory using advanced techniques, namely gas chromatography/mass spectrometry.

Does hydrocodone and oxycodone show up the same on drug test?

They do NOT show up the same on a urine test. Initially, in an in-office surprise test you will pass, being positive for "opiates" only. However, when the MD sends the test out to a lab after that, the lab tests break down the opiates further and can tell you how much vicodin is in your system AND how much oxycodone is in your system. Take note of this, especially if you are prescribed vicodin only and have taken percocet or oxycodone, and vice-versa!
