How Long does green tea stay in your system and will it give a positive reading in a urine sample?

How Long does green tea stay in your system and will it give a positive reading in a urine sample?

About 8 hours, no: Most of the chemicals in green tea are excreted within 8 hours, though trace amounts might persist up to 24 hours. I don't know why anyone would be testing for green tea in a urine sample as it is not considered a drug of abuse. If you were tested for caffeine it might show up but generally urine tests don't check caffeine.

Adequate UOP: It's not how much you take in; but rather, you need a fluid intake adequate for a urine output ("uop") of ~ 8 cups (64 ounces) per day. Caffeine is a diuretic, but you can't squeeze water out of a stone. ...Read more

Tea=diuretic: Since tea is a diuretic, your response is not unexpected. There are however drugs which can reduce your urgency feeling and you need to talk to your doctor about this (assuming that no other abnormality was found). ...Read more

Not unusual: The greater the fluid intake the more you will urinate. In addition, if the green tea is caffeinated, there may be additional urine output due to the fact caffeine can act like a diuretic. ...Read more

Worried about my urine color. Light green. I am taking Zoloft pill to start my period & xanax (alprazolam). No symptoms of uti. Just finished anti biotics 4 uti?

Worried about my urine color. Light green. I am taking Zoloft pill to start my period & xanax (alprazolam). No symptoms of uti. Just finished anti biotics 4 uti?

Hard to say: But i would ask the gynecologist who is prescribing for you. Haven't heard of this with either zoloft or xanax, (alprazolam) but green food colorings that are used in some pills could do this, or it could be from certain foods, like brocolli and asparagus. Very rarely, excessive bile in the urine, from some form of gallbladder or liver problems could do this. Your doctor can do a urinalysis to check it out. ...Read more
