Xanax Half Life: Immediate release: 11.2 hours; Extended release: 10.7-15.8 hours. To be safe I'd say a few days.

How do you know your "hubby" didn't take xanax after that? There is no way for you to know so don't post that crap unless it is about you personally. It is not acurate, no person that never takes xanax could ingest only a single mg and it not be secreted within a few days.

You guys are seriously misinformed. The half life of Alprazolam is indeed 11.2 hours, however, half life has nothing to do with a UA. A half life only refers to how long the chemical is active in your system, not it's detection life. It can be detected in urine for 1-6 weeks, blood 6-48hrs, saliva 10 days, hair 90 days.

taking xanax for 3weeks every other day have 96 hrs before i take urine test. What are the chances for passing and if not good what can be done or taken to get the xanax out of the fat cells.

xanax does not stay in youre system 6 weeks thats nonsense. if you took 12 mg in one fay after 11 hours itd be at 6 mg after another 11 hours its be at 4mg after another 11 hours its be at 2mg this is putting it simply for people who are tricked by these people online saying it takes 1-6 weeks thats bogus info guys. i took 16 2mg bars a day for like a year i was cut off cold turkey terrible withdrawals and everything i was tested four days later and was clean. i have the paperwork i f youd like to challenge me. xanax is an extremely short acting drug. like say cocaine. coke takes 3 days to clear youre system if used briefly but its apples and oranges. regardles after a week youll be clean just drink water and walk dude. i didnt do any of the two and tested negative sooo yeah go figure.

I'm 5'8" 160lbs 6% body fat and don't work out and took ten mg of zany in two days and was clean in two days. It's out in max of 4 days with out exercise or do anything special. If it is for some odd reason of six weeks I would loose the body fat and get your liver and kidneys checked for proper function

To all whom are worried about testing positive. STOP taking meds that are not prescribed to you by your personal licensed Dr. , its far better to be clean and test without all the stress.
