    Depending on age and health, the half-life of Xanax can range from 11.2 hours to 19.7 hours. That means 99% of it would be out of your body in 56 to 98,.5 hours.


    Most drug screenings are meant to look for illicit drugs in your system. Take your Xanax prescription bottle with you, and you should be OK.


    Everything you read about drinking lots of water and other ways to clear drugs from your system are nonsense. It takes as long as it takes.


    Good luck,

    Doesnt it work better if you are honest about what "legally prescribed medicines" you are taking?

    Being in a managerial position in several scenarios I have hired many people that were honest about the meds they took. Turned out to be fine employees, some of them. But then again I always knew who was going to work out, except this one guy.


    Everyone is different as far as vacating medicines from your system. Drink plenty of FLUIDS like Orange Juice, not just water. And find a good way to sweat it out of your system.


    Good luck,
