3 days: Cocaine metabolites can test positive in urine for up to 2 1/2 days or longer.

A few days: Depends on how long, how much and method of administration (i'v, smoking, or snorting) but Cocaine is relatively short acting which is part of why it is so addictive. Best not to use it at all. There are no false positives on drug screen. Please get help to stay off. Extreme craving is characteristic of Cocaine withdrawal and may last for months.

How long do cocaine metabolites stay in your urine?

Depends: The main metabolite is benzoilecognine, there is consensus that until 4-7 days (and even more when combined with marijuana use) is expected positive with most standardized methods. Of course lower tresholds will increase the time of detection. The more chronic heavy use, the more days it will take. The best way to pass a test is to stay clean. Stay clean.

72 hours: Cocaine is a relatively short-acting drug and does not tend to accumulate in the body. The amount used has little effect on how long it stays detectable in urine. The method of testing (dipstick tests like RIA and eia) vs. More complex methods (thin layer or gas chromatography, mass spectrography) also can make a little bit of difference. But in general its about 3 days. If you need help, get it.
