I took .5 of alprazolam two days ago and 1mg of it yesterday. (Two .25 pills two days ago and four .25 pills yesterday). I am 5'7 and 170 pounds with a very high metabolism, I am moderately active and I drink an immense amount of water normally. Seeing as I am very athletic I have very little fat on me. Those two days were the first time I've used xanax in over two years. I have a urine test for probation in the next four days. Meaning ill be five full days clean before the test. I am wondering if I will be safe or not? Will that amount of Xanax come up in a urine test?
This question has also been asked and answered here: How long does Xanax last for / stay in your system?
I think you will still come up positive. Xanax doesnt flush out with water and it takes a long time to fully metabolize. I took one dose prior to a dental appt and had it show on a pre-employment screen about 4-6 weeks later and that is supposed to be the detection time for chronic use but I took only one dose (1mg) prior to a dental appt because that is the ONLY time I use Xanax so I know exactly when I took it and how long it had been. It was prescribed so it was no big deal for me. You might get lucky. Some of the uds detection schedules say that benzos are out in 7-45 days, some say 1-3 days but I know my personal experience was different. If your metabolism is high and you have low body fat, maybe you will get lucky and pass. I wouldnt count on it though, honestly.
I know that you want to hear that you will test negative. My opinion(an educated one) is the chance of you testing negatives very very low. The only thing you can possibly do is to totally flush your system in any way possible. As you have been told , these drugs are stored differently than other drugs of abuse.
You " heard" from a psychiatrist that told you this is not possible. Why is that same Dr not giving you a prescription? I am assuming you are not under his care.
Being on probation and using is a very dangerous combination not that ever using drugs illegally is not
It sounds as if you are trying to take care of your body yet you are on probation and still using
I hope you find a better answer to your problems than using and whatever else got you on probation
