If you are asking how long it takes for a particular drug to get out of your system for any reason other than passing a drug test, call your doctor or pharmacist for that information.  If you are concerned about passing a drug test, following is the information you need. 

If you are taking a drug that has been prescribed for you, all you have to do is take your prescription with you to the drug test and there should be no problem.  If you are taking drugs other than those prescribed for you, the best thing we can do for you is encourage you to get any help you need to stop taking them as soon as possible.  For information and help, call The National Alcohol and Substance Abuse Information Center hotline at 1-800-784-6776 in the U.S. and 1-215-784-1120 outside the U.S. or visit the NASAIC site at:  http://www.addictioncareoptions.com/

agree with miss Karen.This is not a site to come and ask questions on how to pass a drug test,or to aid diversion,if that is what is going on.

I hope you get the help you need,if you are taking someone elses meds,that arent Rx to you.God Bless.
