minute read

Xanax doesn’t clear the body as quickly as many other drugs. In fact, Xanax can be detectable in urine for up to 6 weeks in heavy users. Plus, the main ingredient in Xanax (alprazolam) takes a fairly long time to absorb once it’s in the body, so even small doses can be detectable for over a week.

Here, we review Xanax detection methods and detection windows, not only for those who get high on Xanax but for prescription users as well. And we invite your questions about Xanax in the system at the end. If you leave us your questions or comments, we try to respond to all legitimate queries with a personal and prompt reply.

Main Xanax uses

Xanax narcotic drug is used in the treatment of mood disorders. Xanax decreases abnormal excitement in the brain to control panic attacks and anxiety. In situations where someone suffers panic attacks, Xanax is prescribed on an as needed basis.

How do you take Xanax?

Xanax is available in a few different forms, all taken orally. There is a tablet which is ingested, a tablet which dissolves in the mouth, and a liquid form which is swallowed. There’s also an extended-release tablet.

Peak levels and half life of Xanax

Xanax is absorbed quickly in the body and reaches its peak levels in the blood within one or two hours. These plasma blood levels vary depending on the dose taken, but range from 8-37 ng/mL. The half life of Xanax in healthy adults averages 11 hours. In elderly subjects the half life of Xanax is higher, about 16 hours. People with liver disease and who suffer from obesity will both take longer to metabolize the drug.

Xanax drug testing: How long does Xanax stay in the body?

Although Xanax is a short acting benzodiazepine, Xanax stays in the body for a relatively long time, especially when taken in large doses. It usually takes several weeks to clear Xanax from the body completely. Sometimes it can take over a month. The main testing methods for detecting Xanax in the system are via blood, hair and/or urine drug screens.

How long does Xanax stay in blood?

Xanax stays in the blood for several days, given the long half life of the drug. Exactly how long it stays in the blood depends on the dose taken – it may take longer to clear from the blood in someone who’s abusing the drug and taking higher than normal therapeutic doses.

How long does Xanax stay in hair?

Xanax can be detected in hair up to 90 days after the drug was first taken. The accuracy of this test does depend on a few factors, such as the length of the person’s hair at the time of testing, the color of hair, and whether or not hair has been chemically treated.

How long does Xanax stay in urine?

How long Xanax stays in urine depends on the dose of Xanax taken, and if it’s been taken frequently in the past. For example, traces of Xanax can be found in urine for at least a week – sometimes up to six weeks after the medication was last taken. This is why Xanax addicts and abusers will have a harder time clearing this drug from their system, even after stopping.

Xanax and addiction

Xanax is a habit-forming drug that can become addictive. Addicted Xanax bars users will develop a tolerance fairly quickly if they are taking the drug on a daily basis, meaning it will take higher amounts of Xanax to achieve the same results. Even without addiction, someone taking Xanax can also experience withdrawal symptoms when cutting down on doses or stopping Xanax. The main difference between Xanax dependence and Xanax addiction occurs once the drug is out of your body. If you’re addicted to Xanax, you will experience cravings for Xanax even after it is out of your system.

If you feel that you or a loved one need help quitting use, seeking professional help from Xanax addiction treatment programs can make all the difference from continuing to spiral down with addiction or building a new, positive life in recovery.

Problems with Xanax?

Xanax does have unpleasant and sometimes dangerous withdrawal effects if you’ve used it long-term. However, there is good news: it’s possible to get off the medication by tapering the dosage. If you want to stop taking Xanax, talk to your doctor about a gradually decreasing your dose to make the transition as easy as possible. And if you think that you have a problem with Xanax, also talk with your doctor. Help is available.

  37. My brother had a really bad back injury that required extensive spinal surgery about 10 years ago. Over that time he has been on an insane amount of opioids. He recently moved to a new state and his insurance with his pain management Dr he had from his original place of residence has expired. With that being said it’s obvious that his medication has run out, i believe he somehow has gotten a hold of some xanax. I went to visit him a couple of days ago and he was passed out with his phone on his lap and when I couldn’t wake him up I unlocked his phone and there was a text message from one of his friends saying he was outside with the xanax and upon scrolling up I saw that my brother had asked for 20. He only had 9 left! When he finally woke up I could barely understand him, it was like talking to a 4 year old! To make a long story short I left him with 2 so that we wouldn’t come to fists and I left. Since then I haven’t given him anything. It’s been just about 72 hours. How long do you think it would take someone like my brother to start to come off and be himself again? Do you have any other advise? Anything helps

  85. I have taken 2 mg xanax bars daily,for past ten days. I’m not prescribed. just going through tough times. 1mg in am and 1 mg. in pm. I took my last 1mg yesterday 9/21. I found out I may have urine test tuesday morning. 9/27. will it be out o my urine by then? ? please I need to know.

  86. I want to wean myself off. I don’t know the amount I take. Only the colors. I have both the blue and white. The white ones, I know are low dose and I much prefer the blue. Currently, I take 2 blues a day, on a particularly stressful day, I may take 2 blues and a white together. How much is that? Also, I am a runner, and currently training for a marathon. Sleep is important. How many days can I expect to feel agitated before feeling myself without xanax? I am prescribed the white ones to be taken once 3 X daily. I feel like I can do it, as I have before and it is extremely uncomfortable. Do I really need to worry about seizures?

  87. I took 6mg of Xanax at one time it’s the only time I’ve ever took Xanax how long do you think it will stay in my urine. I have a prescription for kolonapin but I’m afraid if I fail they will send it off to the lab to make sure I’m only taking kolonapin…I have exactly 2 weeks til my test

  117. I’m in pretty average or above-average shape health-wise just have PTSD and combat fatigue syndrome from several tours in Afghanistan and the Marine Corps and sometimes I have trouble sleeping so I take diazepam that was prescribed to me by a doctor every few nights along with the Adderall for ADHD and I’m also prescribed Norco for very serious injuries sustained in combat. Last night my 3 little girls several friends over all young kids and after I fed them and put movies on for them my wife took over so I was fixing to take the diazepam to go to sleep and she asked me if I wanted to try the alprazolam/Xanax. I think I took 5 milligrams but I didn’t like it because I woke up feeling groggy. I am subjected to UA test as well as a possible hair follicle test because of my employment as a dignitary protection agent and I didn’t even realize until this morning that I might have really messed up because if they find anything that you don’t have a prescription for, then…. Uh oh! No history of drug abuse or misuse ever at all in any way and I don’t drink….ANYTHING EVER! I’m not a goody-goody but I’m a Daddy of three little girls so my job is really important for me so it’s just better not to take chances because if I’m not working I’m taking care of my kids and you can’t do that while you’re high or drunk. Plus I’m Native American and I’m sure everybody knows the stereotype of predispositions to substance abuse. Any help and advice on this subject would be greatly appreciated!

  118. If I only took Xanax for one night but kind of a high dose how long will it stay in my system and show up in UA test?

I have a 3 3yr old son so I have to be able to stay awake during the day. I’ve been stressing out cuz I need to sleep at night so now I’m shakey and sweaty bordering on a panic attack. I’ve taken everything from melatonin, valerian root, benadryl, aterax, methocarbobal, chamomile, so like EVERYTHING. My friend gave me a couple 0.5mgs of xanax but here lies my problem. I’m a recovering addict I’ve been clean for almost 8yrs, but I never had a problem with benzos, just opiates. But I’m on suboxone and I will have a urine test next Tuesday. When I was pregnant I was on kolonapin with my subutex so I know I am one of the ppl that can mix them without any problems. I’m just worried about my urine test cuz I can not lose my suboxone.

Please I’m completely desperate for some help or insight!!!!!!!!!

  130. My hair is long and has been chemically treated. I only took one Xanax that I had an old script of from a couple years back. It came up in the hair drug test, but the guy who cut my hair took the whole length of it. Is that why it should up? Would other drugs such as lidocaine patches, or Valium etc make a false positive? Also, my boyfriend and I share the same hairbrush and he sleeps on my pillow while I’m at work (work the night shift) and I did not wash my hair prior to the test. It was a surprise test. Could his hair mixed with mine and caused a positive result (he takes Xanax).

I have an extremely high tolerance for someone so tiny. Long story short I ended up getting pulled over and had a couple xanex and some weed on me and I quit using because I knew probation was coming. I did not use anything except my prescription suboxone for two months then I caved because of all the stress and took 4 bars in a two day time period about two weeks ago. I have my first drug test for probation tomorrow so my question is should that amount of xanex still be in my system sense I had not taken anything two months prior to taking them?

  182. Hi, I am very worried here. I assure you I am not a drug addict and have never taken Xanax before this point. My cousin passed away a few years ago and while I was having one of the worst nights I’d had yet coping with his loss my friend suggested I take a half a bar. So I’m assuming that’s .5? I have never taken it before and will never taken it again. I am however a student athlete and I’m afraid we will get tested soon. The organization is called drug free sport, and although I have reaearched and researched I have no idea if they test for xanax in their urine test.

  188. My mother is 65 and takes .5mg of aloprozam a day. Sometimes she breaks it in half so she can take half in the morning and half in the afternoon. Her most recent urine test showed negative for aloprozam and ambien. I handle her medications and keep them under lock and key. I know she takes both meds everyday. Her doctor wont prescribe her ambient, aloprozam, or percacet(she tested positive for percacet) because of the test results. I understand why they test and there are guidelines. What would cause her to test negative? Is a blood serum test is more accurate? She doesn’t want this in her medical file. Any assistance or information would be greatly appreciated.

  189. Hi Ivana. You have been so kind with your replies. You sound pretty confident in your 7-10 day theory (everyone can be different). And I am trying to find comfort in that. I knew that I had a really awesome job lined up but I thought since I had done contract work that I had no UA fears. Well the day after I took a few xannex I was called to come in next week. I plan to buy an at home test Monday, to see where I stand then. This coming Wednesday will be 7 days, so at most I can push it to 9 I guess. This sux. Story of my life for some reason. If I have a UA, I always have to freak out about it. Thanks for your blog. and patience.

  190. Took 3 xanax and have a PO appointment 6 days from now…I never take them regularly I work out a lot and drink k tons of water.

  192. I take a quarter of a 1mg xanax at night for anxiety from menopause. Sometimes it’s not even a full quarter. I have a drug test for the post office coming up. Will it be in my urine if I do not take it for the next four days?

    1. Hi Matty. That’s different for every individual based on the level of hydration, body weight, physical activity, how long have you been taking Xanax, your general health state, etc. If you are a long term user, a few weeks will be needed to clear your system from the medication.

  194. I took 1 gineric form of xanax Sat.July1 will this med show up in my hair next week I’ve never taken this before I don’t smoke weed or take any other drugs.

  195.

  196. I haven’t taken any benzos in 3 months. I am 5 3 and a 1/2 weight is about 170. I took a half of a Xanax bar because of a major anxiety attack. I don’t have a prescription, although I used to. I take UAs every week because I am in treatment. Can I pass my test? This up coming week?

  198. I am testing pisitive for benzo 14 days later. Am i still at risk for seuzures…should i have a medical detox now??

  199. P.S. More info. I’m a 55yo male, 6′ tall, weigh 162 (thin), & don’t drink enough fluids in my own opinion. Thanks for a timely response since I could put this off for a week or so or submit urine sample as scheduled tomorrow afternoon 7-27-2015. I also have a good, legal prescription for clonazepam they’re expecting to see in the urine sample. Would clonazepam & xanax show up the same as being simply positive for benzos or can they differentiate between different benzodiazepines. Thanks very much!

  200. I took one 1 mg xanax two days in a row and half of one yesterday. How long will they be detected. I have a prescription but it’s outdated, I’m not an addict just having horrible anxiety due to an impending surgery this coming week.

  206. my friend says he took one Xanax approximately 12 days ago. He has been urine tested each week and is still coming up dirty for benzos. He is 20 years of age and in good shape. If he has only taken it the one time is this possible, or should we have a little more patience?

  207. Hi can someone please answer this question for me? I took xanax last week everyday up until Friday night (maybe Saturday) and took about 1 (2mg) bar each night. I have stopped taking it and switched back to my RX of Clonazepam as of Saturday or Sunday and haven’t touched more xan since then. I have a doc appt and urine test on Friday afternoon and they do test for benzos. I have a fairly high metabolism but my liver is probably sluggish due to all the meds I’m on. Do you think I will pass the urine test or do you think the xan will still show up by then? Thanks in advance! 🙂

  208. Hey I took about 2 mg over the course of about 2 days and I might be getting drug tested in about 12 days. I’m a very healthy individual, definitely more so than the average person. Would I be able to pass the test if they did so?

  209. From personal experience, it takes 2-4 weeks to test clean after taking therapeutic doses of diazepam (20-25 mg/day). In contrast, the dosage for drugs such as alprazolam is about 10x lower (0.25-2 mg/day). In addition, their half-lives are much shorter. Again speaking from personal experience, a single usage of alprazolam or lorazepam won’t be detected after a few days. This is due to the combination of short half-life and low dosage levels. If you are in doubt, use a 12-panel home test kit before going for your job interview or probation UA. You can also improve your chances by drinking a good amount of liquid (50-60 oz) 1-2 hours prior to the test, and peeing several times before giving your urine.

    1. Hello Ange. It depends on many factors, some of which you’ve numbered. Such a low, one-time dose of Xanax can also take 3-7 days to clear from your system. I cannot, however, predict the exact day it will get completely eliminated.

  212. I normaly dont fool with any drugs but a friend offered said it make my back stop hurt mind you it helped more then pain pills i get from dr but im worryed took four on 18 two that morning two that night have to see my dr on 4th for drug screen im. 198lb 5 foot wil it be out god i hope

  213. I was over using my Xanax prescription due to severe anxiety and depression. I found out probation drug tests show levels. I quit sixteen days before test and went back to prescribed amounts. Will my test still show levels of abuse. Please help. I will probably go to jail if levels are to high. Thank you

  214. I have a friend on probation, that just found out that with urine screening, they test for levels of prescription drugs. If he has been taking more than prescribed for a couple months and found out about the levels being checked and cut back to regular prescribed amount, would two weeks be an adequate amount of time for the levels to return to normal therapeutic amounts or not? Thank you in advance. He is very distraught over this new information.

  215. I went to my doctor and they said my levels were slightly elevated I had been to court wea I was wrongful arrested for DWI and I was taking a half of 2mg pill daily stressing how do I get my levels back. The DWI have been dropped I’m no longer in that stressful environment I never was drunk and it was my 1st time going to court for anything I also lost a child during this arrest so it is now done

    1. Hello Mike. After taking even a small dose of Xanax for two months you cannot go and quit without any withdrawal effects. Physical withdrawal symptoms from Xanax mimic and feel like the flu symptoms. Other physical symptoms can consist of vomiting, chills and sweat. You can use over-the-counter-medications from your local pharmacy to treat the flu-like symptoms and address body discomfort. You can expect it all to be over in about a week or two.

  221. I tool 3, 10mg Friday, 3, 10mg Saturday and 2, 10mg Sunday. I don’t ever take this medication and wondered how long it will be in my urine?

  222. I see a Dr every week and the previous 2 weeks have used xanax. Small amout of about 1 mg or less. Once per week. Anyway my question is previously I have done this and passed my urine test after 2 to 3 days. But I recently done a 1 mg xanax last night, and have a urine test Thursday. If I drink alot of water, will I pass it! Or will it still have traces in my urine. I did piss dirty last week for it, if I did happen to fail, is it possible even tho I used yesterday that it would be a small enough amout to where my Dr can see my levels are getting lower?

  223. How long will 10 M’s of xans stay in your system. Even though this the first time I used. What should I do?!? To pass a teat on Monday!!?

  224. if I took 3mg of Xanax and 2mg of clonopin over a five day period ending three weeks ago will it still be in my system? I take a vitamin pack called animal pack that has pretty much every vitamin and nutrient in it and I take two a day.

  225. And for future reference DO NOT take xanax and drink. That’s about one of the most…unwise, things you can do. Unless you want to wake up in the E.R. with your lungs full of your own vomit 100% unable to breath. It happened to me with prescribed painkillers and benzo’s. I was extremely lucky not to have brain damage and was clinically dead for a very short period. Wanna talk about a panic attack..? Or you won’t wake up at all.

  226. OMG, you guys, stop asking about drug tests! Ivana’s answered it numerous times and is too polite to say anything. About 75% of these comments have nothing to do with addiction and just ask the same questions about drug tests that have been answered numerous times. Read the comments, or google it. Stop being lazy, jeez!

  227. Hi Danielle. The reson why you are finding so many different answers is because everyone tests come out different. Whether or not Xanax will be detectable in urine and for how long depends on your health state, level of hydration, for how long have you be taking 50 pills a month, are you taking any other medications…etc. It can take at least a couple of weeks, for sure.

  228. Hi, I had a prescription to Xanax when I was 19 i lost my insurance and therefore lost the script. I am now 25. I currently buy 50 1mg a month off of a friend and use all 50 every month.

  229. Hello Dave. Xanax has a very quick half-life and it’s usually out of the body after one week time, after single use. When it’s used regularly, on daily basis, it shows up in your system for up to 30 day’s if drug tested.

  231. Hi, I took two 2mg Xanax “alprazolam” one on oct 9 the other Oct 10 I am prescribed them, this is the first time I have taken them in years.

My question: i took 2.5 xanax over the course of the last 3 days cause of paniac attacks, i could NOT control, unoercribed, obviously,….. How long do you think i need to wait to join my outpatient rehab to be able to still get my low dose suboxone? Its like this suboxone did this to me, and now i know i need to keep tapering just another couple of months. Plus, the therapy, can always help!
    Please help! Im worried! I dont wanna backslide after this long clean!!!!

  235. Hi Devorah. It all depends on various factors, such as metabolism, bodily mass, how long, how frequently and what doses you were taking, your age, your current health state, etc. Xanax as you know, works very quickly and it leaves the body very quickly, 7-10 days is a rough estimate, but should be enough.

    You should be aware that suddenly discontinuing the Xanax can result in withdrawal symptoms, so it’s a good idea to discuss with your doctor about your decision to stop taking the medicine and taper it down under your doctor’s supervision. Your Gynecologist is probably the best person to advise you on this matter.

  236. I want to try to get pregnant but I am worried b/c I will be taking xanax through August 14th. How long does it take to leave my system completely? Will the prolonged use affect the health of my eggs?

  244. hey i took half of a xanax on the 19 of this month and im having a drug hair test on the 4 of this month coming up…is it possible that it wont show on my drug test

  245. I had a prescription in the past (years ago ) for Xanex 0.25 there were 50 left in the bottel I remembered from when I used to take it that they didn’t really work all that well to relevie any of my panic attacks so in 2 days I took all 50 of the white 0.25 which worked well with getting rid of the panic attacks however I threw the bottel away and was wondering how long will it take to get out of my system I don’t plan on raising any more becouse they never seemed to work anyway this was just the first time in years that I had took any thing like that so when will it be out of my system since I no longer have proof that it was percsried to me so I need to know when it will be out just incase I have to take a urine test sometime after the 1 st and now no longer have the old bottel that was perscribed to me

  247. Is there a difference in how fast the body metabolizes xanax vs xanx xr? I take 1mg xanax xr 3 times dails (twice in the morning, and once as needed), but i feel that it does not even last me 4 hours before my anxiety completely takes it over. Would you reccommend I switch to a higher dosage of the xr or swith to instant release?

  248. Misty, Do you take Zoloft? I use to take it but not anymore, found out it was giving me Panic Attacks! I have several friends that also suffered from Panic Attacks, when I found out they took Zoloft, I told them to go to their dr. and get off Zoloft. They did and believe it or not, 6 of the 7 have not had any more Panic Attacks. Be Blessed. Hope this helps

  249. I take Xanax, prescribed by my pain management physician. I take my meds as prescribed, sometimes I forget, Ive never run out of meds at the end of the month, usually have several left over. I don’t take Xanax (.25 mg) all the time but at least every other day. However, the last 2 months, it is not showing up in my urine or bloodwork. I don’t understand why it isn’t showing. Any thoughts

  250. I took a 1mg Xanax. I haven’t used any benzos for months. How long will it show up in a urine test? I have a test on Monday. I’m working on my anxiety issues and have been doing very well but I had a panic attack that was extreme today

  252. I want to let everyone, concerned about passing their drug tests, know that the detection times for Alprazolam in your urine is not nearly as long as they claim on here. I was going to write a long explanation but don’t feel like it anymore. So, to make a long story short I have a drug test every Monday, and from Tuesday until Sunday I regularly take Xanax. I stop every Saturday night, give myself a day off, and I pass every Monday test. I know everyone is different in regards to body type, age, and metabolism ect., but I just want my experience to provide a small measure of relief and sense of hope to those who feel defeated.

  253. What does a 190 level of aprazolam in someone’s blood mean? Is this high? How does the level in the blood corrolate to the actual affects on a person? In other words, when someone is really feeling the effects of aprazolam, will that equate to high levels in the blood at that moment? Thanks.

  254. If I only took 1 mg of xanax how long will it take to leave my system? Will it take a full six weeks for me to pass a drug test?

  255. I was prescribed 0.25mg of Xanax today. I took one and did not like it. I would rather just have a glass of wine but it says strictly NO ALCOHOL. How long do I have to wait for one .25mg pill to metabolize out of my body so I can have a glass of wine? Im not going to have any tonight since I just took the pill at 1:30 in the afternoon but the info says this can last several weeks in my system.

  256. I found this answer on Erowid. It answered my questions, maybe it will be the answer for yours.

    “Most employers do 5 panel drug tests; the few who pay more for additional panels rarely choose Benzodiazepine as one of their additional drugs they want employees to be tested for. Even if they are testing for Benzodiazepines, unless you were taking them frequently, it will not likely register on any drug test.

    If you have taken more than a few over a course of days; Detectable in urine: up to 7 days but usually undetectable in less than 3 days

    Hair drug test: up to 90 days

    Saliva or blood test: up to 6 to 24 hours

    If you have been taking xanax every day regularly; possible length of detection times:

    Urine: up to 6 weeks

    Hair: up to 90 days

    Saliva or blood : up to a week

  257. i took 2mg of xanex on sunday for the first time in 8 months i need it out of my system in 48 hours do you think i have a chance of it being out by then? and what can i do to get it out? by the way its a urine test

  258. I took 2 0.5mg Xanax today for the first time in a month and a half. I have a drug test for my suboxone program in 18 days. Will my urine be clean?

  259. I used zanax first and last time .25 alprazolam i was having a panic attack and a friend gave it to me . Not knowing I had to submit a urine test 4 days after the fact….. do you think I will come back positive I never did it before? I guess I learned my lesson?!!!

  260. I took about 1.5 mg of Xanax roughly 22 hours ago. I had previously been prescribed this medicine for most of my teen and early 20’s for social anxiety but its been many years since I’ve needed to take it.

    I did need to take it this weekend due to several sudden, random panic attacks. I no longer have a prescription for it but my mother does, so she told me to just take hers at my old dose. Then suddenly today I was offered a job. I scheduled the urine test for about 58 hours from now. So around 80 hours between the last dosage and the urine test.

    I’m terrified I won’t get this truly great job because my urine will come up dirty over something so stupid. Is this enough time for the medicine to be out of my body? I’m diabetic so I don’t know if I’ll metabolize it faster or slower.

  261. I know that Xanax is to be strictly avoided during pregnancy. My question is: I took just one tablet of 0.5mg Xanax about 10 days before I underwent an IUI (Intrauterine insemination), mainly to calm myself when I received some very distressing, bad news. Now I am worried if that will harm the fetus if I do become pregnant. I am not able to find an answer to this anywhere on the web. Can you please help?

  262. I take a 1 mg xanax twice daily. I am on a pain med contract. My physician says the Xanax is not showing up in my urine drug screen. What could be going on? Would a blood test be better?

  265. Hello Neil. Memory loss has been commonly associated WITH THERAPEUTIC USE of Xanax. Benzodiazepines can cause amnesic effects, principally anterograde amnesia, and the magnitude and duration of these effects may vary depending on the patient (eg, age), drug, dosage, and route of administration. Immediate recall usually does not appear to be affected substantially. In other words, while these effects may occur during use of Xanax, memory is usually not affected the next day. More here:

  266. Hi
    I was prescribed Xanax initially for panic attacks in a dosage of 0.25 mg. Over the years I take them whenever things are particularly stressful. I take up to four at night to help me sleep. I’m terrified of sleeping pills as I became addicted to them. I am also taking Stilpayne up to six a day for headaches.
    I do have an addiction problem and in a state of panic threw them all away. That was yesterday and I’m battling. Is there a more sensible way of tapering down the dose and weaning myself off?
    Your help would be greatly appreciated..

  267. One of the side effects of xanex if forgetfulness/memory loss. How long after taking a 1mg. xanex nightly for several years will it take to recoup memory? If taken at night, does xanex affect memory/forgetfulless the following day?

  268. I took Xanex almost every night in the second half of may, all of June and most of July for sleep. We now have to have a drug test for work, I havent taken anything since the end of july….Will I pass??
