How long after taking a benzodiazepine, such as Xanax, does it stay in your system after last use?

Benzos like Xanax can show up in urine a long time (if that is what you mean by "in your system") sometimes as long as 30 days to 6 weeks. It doesnt act on your body that long but it can be detected in a drug test a long time. I personally had one dose of Xanax taken before a dental appt show up on a urine drug screen 6 weeks after the dose was taken. The half life is 12 to 15 hours for immediate release pills.
