Depends: The duration of action is on average 7-8 hrs but that doesn't mean it will be cleared from your system by then. I suppose it depends on what the drug test screens for and it they will consider a benzodiazepine as an illicit drug. You can always get a note from the dentist perhaps?

Why do you ask?: Tell them that the medication was prescribed appropriately. It would be illegal to consider this drug abuse.
