Tylenol 3 showing up on a hair drug test?

I took 2 Tylenol 3 pills about 3 months ago for a toothache. I didn't know they were Tylenol 3 until after I took them. I didn't think anything about it until I had to go take a hair test on October 19th for my employer. I had a haircut in September, and I only took those two pills. I don't smoke, drink or take drugs. I have no plans on taking ANY pills from anyone ever again, no matter how much pain there is. What are the chances of these pills showing up on the test?

Tylenol often shows up in drug tests including hair follicle tests. However, in your case it will not show as the drug just like other opiates has a detection time of between 5 and 7 days.

Slim to none after three months. If a miniscule amount shows up you have an explanation, right?

It was not my prescription. I didn't know it was Tylenol 3 until just recently. I simply asked the coworker for an aspirin and he said he had a Tylenol. I have certainly learned my lesson about knowing what I'm taking!
