It will usually take around a week for Xanax to leave your system completely, although depending on which type of test you are using, traces of the drug can be detected for longer... Here's some more information that you need to know if you're cleaning your system of Xanax:

Xanax is the brand name for Alprazolam, and is part of the benzodiazepine class of drugs. It is used primarily to treat anxiety and panic attack disorders.

As with any drug, the length of time it will stay in your system depends on a number of different factors:

  • Your personal body weight, height and general health status.
  • The type of Xanax you have taken - there are two different types, instant release or extended release.
  • Frequency of use - if you are a regular Xanax user then it will stay in your system much longer than if it is just a "one off" use.

Taking an 'average' of all these variables, Xanax will usually stay in your system between three to five days, but for more regular users it will be more like seven to ten days.

Months of Tapering From taking xanax and withdrawl can be moderate to servere  if you just stop but you still get it withdrawl and from when you taper xanax.  Servere withdrawal can result in convulsions.  Its a controlled prescription Benzodiazipine and needs to be monitored by a GP doctor and a pyshiarist including coming off of it.  

Its usually becomes an problem after only two weeks of taking it and its usually CONSIDERED A SHORT TERM SOLUTION TO ANIXIETY.  You can mix the drug with alcohol and causes a High however it makes you disinhibited and causes memory issues and you care at a high risk of Toxiation of xanax and alcohol and over doses.  Prescription Pills that are benzodiazpines, opoids and any other that can be abused and cause addictions can be pour and potent and can cause death and addiction especially when mixed with alcohol. 

{Or you can ask Adrienne and Billie Joe Armstrong about xanax.  She tweeted about taking the pill herself 4 months before Billie Joe spiraled down so publicly.  So, they are quite experienced at taking prescription pilsl and you can ask about that Xanax and beer lyric in Westbound Sign.  I would  not play that song live again if I was Green Day .

If you forward that drug and alcohol test stuff to them right, it might prompt them to both get clean. It wouldnt look good if Little Miss Sweetie Pie Adie Armstrong was spaced out of prescriptions so that by the time they get tested they would actually be clean.
