I took one ativan pill at least i think it was on 3/18/07. Thought it was an over the counter pain pill. It's not prescribed to me and I have a job enterview on 3/22/07 where they do a drug screen. Can someone tell me if it will still be in my system by then? Hope I get an answer soon thank you

Ativan is a benzodiazepine, most regular employment checks don't look for this, however, it would more than likely be out of your system by then anyway, with the half-life and having taken only 1 dose, it is usually out of your system in a max of 48 to 72 hours.

Thank you for the info cause I was told by a few people that it may be up to 30 to 45 days. If your right you just lifted a big worry off my mine. If not then thanks for the concern and your responce. Have a great day.

Even if you were taking something for years, at a very high dose, it does not take that long to get out of your bodies system, that is why people who take narcotics or benzos and abruptly stop taking them end up in withdrawal so fast, usually within a week.

So that is definitely not the correct time frame. Taking one pill, when you figure in the half-life, which is how long it takes the medication to be reduced in your body by 50%, there is no way it can last that long in the body. A few days is the max for one pill.

The only thing that could pick up something like that after that long of a time period would be a hair strand test that was specifically looking for that type of drug, not a urine or even a blood test.

I have been smoking and ingesting grass several times daily for 45 years.
Now due to an acute diverticulitis attack, I have been without for a month and feel anxious, worried and very emotional. Would Lorazepam help me feel better? My family doctor prescribed it and I am concerned about addiction.

this is to mot. if u been smokin trees for 45 years and you quit and all u experiance is anxiety, i dont think u need to worry about addiction. but seriously since i srated taking benzos like clonopin and xanax my mental state has deteriorated severly. ive been addicted to heroin for 11 years and even that didnt make me feel this crazy mentally. it helps with anxiety, but when i dont take them im so scared of demons and spirits i cant sleep!! be careful, just keepin it real.

It sounds to me like either you and your friends are very uninformed, or you are taking more and trying to find out what will happen with one and then figuring out how much you are taking and then how long it would take. I could be totally off the mark, but most people know that drugs cannot stay in your system that long. Just my opinion

@Atavanlover...man you really need to be careful. Mixing all of those drugs can cause instant death. Withdrawing from many different things including prescription drugs and illegal drugs is a very hard thing to do and shouldn't be taken lightly. Mixing uppers and downers makes your heart go up and down rapidly it could stop at any moment.

I'm in almost the same boat Tab. I am on Suboxone and been taking Xanax for about a yr off and on. This past month or 2 I haven't been taking as much and have been feeling super anxious and my head has been all over the place. I went on a interview march 28th and took 3- 1mg Xanax so i didn't panic at the interview. On the 30th I took a Adivan that I had been holding on to. It has been about 6 days since I have taken any benzo and I have been drinking a ton of water the past few days. I took a 10 panel drug test today for the job and I am a nervous wreck. From what I am researching on the internet benzos will be out of your system in at most a week (usually a couple days). Some places are saying 3 to 4 weeks, but I have a hard time believing that. I took a drug test in the past the same day that I did heroin and drank alot of water and passed. Anything you hear is not going to make you feel better till you actually pass the test, but I would bet my last dime that you will pass if it was a week ago and you drink a couple bottles of water before you take the test. Just don't over do it or they might consider your piss "diluted". Good Luck on your interview!!

Just wanted to say you should go on Klonipn . I study meds. And Clonazpam has a long half life keeping you calmer much longer.. Ativan is more addictive..wish the best for you.
