The half life is 4.5 hrs so it should be out of your system by then. If you have it prescribed for you there shouldn't be a problem, anyway.

I have to disagree on this one. You can still have metabolites in the urine on average 2-5 days. If you are being blood tested then yes, it will likely not be detected but urine takes a little longer. Half life shows how fast it is being metabolized but those metabolites can take a while to completely clear the urine. At 3 days, you are right on the line. You may or may not depending on how fast you metabolize and clear those metabolites. I usually tell people to give it 5-7 days to be sure but you might be ok if you metabolize fast. If you have a script you should be fine though because you have a legal reason to take the drug unless you are being tested by DOT or you dont have a legal script, then you may be in trouble.
