Question Xanax in Drug Test??

Does Xanax show up in a regular urine test? I have a prescription but I donít want my new job knowing that I am on it.

Yes, alprazolam and its metabolite, alpha-hydroxyalprazolam can be detected in drug screens that are testing for benzodiazepines.

What diff does it make if they know it? You're applying for a job w/ a pharma company that makes prescription drugs and then would disqulify you because you were using a prescription drug? Doesn't make sense! Take your Rx w/ you and the results should indicate that you are on NO unauthorized drugs.

Re: "what difference if they know it": Duh!
They will fire you, not hire you, tag you as a psycho, ruin your life, etc.! Almost all drug tox screen panels test for benzodiazepines. All CDL, FAA, DOT and military panels definitely screen for them.
See what happens when you ask them what they specifically screen for. Be assured they will run a full spectrum screen on you after you ask for that little tidbit of info.


What could be more of a violation of our fourth amendment rights than to have our bodily fluids searched without probable cause nor warrant!

May Thomas Jefferson never know and rest in peace.

Use your brain man. Why take information on this website when you can Google and get information straight form companies who perform testing regarding levels of dectability, associated does, duration, etc.

If you are on it - so what. You are far better off stating on the disclaimer than omitting it and testing positive.

All the lab is going to report is yea or nay. Besides, they aren't going to do the screen before making a contingent offer.

With this degree of paranoia - it's probably a good idea that you are taking something.

Wrong. Most companies test for the SAMHSA-5: Amphetamines (methamphetamine and amphetamine), Cocaine metabolite, Cannabinoids, PCP and Opiates (codeine and morphine). Some companies do an expanded drug screen to look for Benzodiazepines, Barbiturates, Methadone, and others are testing for Propoxyphene, Ecstasy and an Extended Opiate panel (oxycodone, oxymorphone, hydrocodone, hydromorphone). A company can make their own drug test panel using different cut-off levels, etc. if they want to set it up with the lab that way. You can say anything to the company or collection facility personnel that you want to, companies have written drug testing policies and are not going to spend more money or deviate from policy just because you asked what was in the drug screen. Besides, the form you either take in (or they give it to you there) and sign usually has the panel listed on there.

Yes, there are limits of detection (LOD) but laboratories must adhere to a cut-off value (established by SAMHSA, DOT, FAA, the employer, etc.), which also has to be within their quality control limits. They might be able to detect down to 2 ng/mL of delta-9-THC in your urine, but the cut-off limit on the confirmation/quantitation is 15 ng/mL.

You cannot associate a dose with a level in urine.

Duration of action? I think you mean how long will a urine specimen test positive after ingestion of substance -- all depends on body type, metabolism, what kind of user you are, etc. They can give ballpark times, but nothing is guaranteed.


If you are on it - so what. You are far better off stating on the disclaimer than omitting it and testing positive.

I am pretty sure HIPAA got rid of anyone having to disclose up front what medications they are on BEFORE they are tested. If your screen is positive, the specimen goes for a confirmation test. If it is still positive, a Medical Review Officer (MD or DO) will contact you about any Rxs that you have, and proof of them. If you tested positive for Benzodiazepines, at that point, you would be providing proof that you indeed have an Rx for Xanax.

All the lab is going to report is yea or nay. Besides, they aren't going to do the screen before making a contingent offer.

Wrong. The lab will report a positive for the group, and the identity of drug and/or metabolites that are found in the urine during confirmation testing. They will know whether you are taking Xanax or Valium, butalbital or phenobarbital, etc.

This is 100% true. During 2 job drug screens, I've been on Restoril and xanax for intermitent insomnia and I just brought the prescribing physicians phone number and the pharmacy contact info where I filled my Rx. They don't report legally prescribed drugs.

Default methadone in ameritox drug screen

Does the ameritox drug screen test for methadone? If so, how much do I have to have in my system for a positive test result?

If you have an Rx for the drug and it DOES impair you for any of the job duties, why worry? I take a number of drugs for pain and bowel disorders that would bump a panel. Just bring your Rxs with you. FT is right. An MD will call you to discuss your test results. However, last panel I did they had me fill out a form that listed ALL of my RX drugs, mg, when and how long as well as conditions I have been diagnosed with. Yes, I think it is delving into our privacy but this is no different than the potential truck driver who is on insulin. . . not going to happen. No company where "driving" is a requirement can afford to put someone who may be a problem on the road. There are lots of candidates out there in perfect health.

Bullshit, a dot screen is a five panel test which doesnt include benzo's, or methadone.
