Wondering what affect it has on pre-employment U.A.
Xanax has an elimination half-life that ranges from 9 hours to 16 hours in healthy adults.
This means that it will take most people within the span of 9 to 16 hours (post-ingestion) to eliminate 50% of the drug from their body. On average (among most users), the half-life of Xanax is around 12 hours. This means that most people will have fully eliminated (100%) the drug from their system within 4 days.
However, the “average” clearance time certainly doesn’t apply to everyone; some will eliminate Xanax from their system at a much quicker rate than others. Assuming you are on the faster end of the elimination spectrum, you could fully clear Xanax from your system within 2.06 days. If you are slower than average in your ability to metabolize and excrete Xanax, it could take 3.67 days to fully clear it from your system.
