My buddy took his first xanax 2 nights ago. They are 2 mg and he wants to take another one tonight but has a drug test on march 8. I told him he shouldnt take it because i have heard it can stay in your system for a week and a half. What are the chances he will test positive?
This question has also been asked and answered here: How long will Xanax stay in your system for a urine test?
Many sources say 3-7 days but I, personally, had one dose of Xanax 0.5mg show up in a drug screen six weeks after I took it! I take Xanax prior to my dental appts, so I knew exactly when I had my last dose and six weeks later I had a UDS for a job and it showed positive for Xanax. Luckily I did have a prescription, so it was of no consequence but I do now know that benzos can be detected in the urine a long time! If he doesnt want Xanax to show on this UDS coming up, he'd better not take anymore-you are right, it can be detected a long time because it stores in the fat.
