Depending on how frequently you've been taking this drug, Xanax (Benzodiazepines) can be detected in your urine for up to 1-6 weeks after your last dose.

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

With that said, I don't know how many clean days you gave yourself in-between your last dose and your drug test, otherwise I'd be able to provide a more accurate answer to your question.

I hope this info helps!

Xanax contains the active ingredient Alprazolam, which is a Benzodiazepine and this class of medications is usually detectable in urine for approximately 6 weeks after last dosing.

Learn more Xanax details here.

The precise time frame will vary from person to person, depending on various individual factors, such as your overall health, fluid intake, activity levels and etc. but 6 weeks is the average for most people.

Are there any other comments or questions?

The usual formula is that 4-5 half-lifes are required before a med is completely gone. BTW, no one takes 5mg of Xanax. The dose is .5mg or you would probably be almost comatose.

Unfortunetly you are wrong when u say NOBODY takes 5mgs of xanax or you would probably be comatose. i myself have been addicted for yrs & I must take at least 5mg to feel any effect. True but VERY sad. I HATE that I am addicted.

Being an addict is completely different from being a normal taker. If a norm al taker takes 5mg as you do they would be more likely to succumb to the effects of the drug. You on the other hand have built up such a tolerance to the drug it takes more to get you off. Unfortunatly you being an addict means that you are killing your kidneys brain heart and liver. And no legimate doctor is going to prescribe you that mg. I'm sorry you are an addict and again unfortunately I deal with people in your condition daily. Gokd luck to you.

Nervous, you took 6 mg and you ask "will you be safe"? Xanax is a very addictive medicine, and is not a sleeping medicine. That amount taken is pure drug abuse, no doubt obtained illegally? You are not safe

i smoked a small hit of crack (i never done crack before so their was no crack left but we pushed the copper scrub back and forth through the tube not getting a high, but could smell it) and took 3 blue xanax foot-balls (my first time) to go to bed. i'm applying for a job and i dont know when they will drug test me. how long will both of those last in my system? And dont judge me on what i do, i do not care for what anyone has to say about how bad drugs are. save it for someone who cares. just tell me how long it will stay in my system.

well the Xanax will clear your system physically in three days although you may still have very minor withdrawal symptoms, just take a brisk walk and you'll be fine, i really don't know about how long the crack will stay though.
