Xanax (Benzodiazepines) can be detected in your urine for up to 1-6 weeks after your last dose. I don't believe though that these figures are based on a whole pill or half a pill, but rather just having the drug in your system on a consistent basis. Since you only took half a pill (once) and are drinking plenty of fluids I would imagine that it would be out of your system in only a weeks time (or less), compared to a daunting 6 weeks.

Keep in mind that because everyone is different, these are only intended to be rough estimates and should be treated as such.

To get a bit more specific, the average elimination half-life of alprazolam (xanax) has been found to be about 11.2 hours (range: 6.3 to 26.9 hours) in healthy adults. Half-life here means that, say, 11 hours after ingesting Xanax, half of the active amount will be gone. This doesn't mean that 11 hours later, though, the other half will be gone. At that point half of the remainder will be gone, then another half after the same time interval, and so on, until the drug is eliminated from the body.

I hope this info helps!
