The detection window: Of single dose of Valium (diazepam) for a urine drug screen is 7 days. However, high dose and or long duration of use can increase that window to up to 30 days. A healthy, well-hydrated young adult male may eliminate Valium from his system in fewer than 5 days, but I wouldn't count on it. If you have a valid prescription, in most cases, the test will be reported as "negative." Dr. Anne ...Read more

7-40 days, will vary: How long it takes before you pass depends on 3 things: 1) your genetics: the efficiency of your cyp liver enzymes governs benzodiazepine elimination. Slow metabolizers can have the drug in their system for 50 days, depending on the initial dose. 2) the type of assay used 3) the sensitivity cutoff for the test. The department of defense, for instance, has lower cutoff values to test positive. ...Read more

Dentist game me 5mg valium. How long stay in system I am 5ft 5in. I have a urine test for work.

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? ...Read more

Unlikely: It varies how quickly benzos leave your system. Drinking lots of water could help. The real question from my view is why you would take so many pills in a day. I can't imagine that this was how they were prescribed. ...Read more

My friend took 30mg of Valium yesterday only once and has a urine test in two weeks, he weighs 125 and is 6ft tall, when will it be out of the urine?

High dose: Your friend has a high tolerance to valium if s/he took that much and was still awake. Valium itself has a half-life of 30-60 hours, but some of its metabolites have half-lives up to 100 hours. This could remain detectable in urine for 5 x 100 hours, or 20-21 days (3 weeks). ...Read more

It's clearance from the body depends on the condition of your liver and the presence of competing substances. Also, detection of valium in the urine is also based on the sensitivity and specificity of the test. Usually clears in 4 to 7 days. Best wishes! ...Read more

Couple wks or more: 1st, never take prescription drugs not prescribed to you. Luckily you didn't sustain a drug-drug interaction. Generic diazepam has a half-life of 30-60hrs while its major active metabolite has half-life of around 30-100hrs. It takes 5+ half-lives to clear something from your body so count on 500+hrs (close to 3wks) before urine test is negative. Obviously depends upon other factors too beyond 400c ...Read more

If I took 5 mg of Valium once a day for 3 night would it show on a urine drug test 6 days later. I am thin with fast metabolism and very active?

Yes: Half life of Valium is ~100 hours and it usually take 5 half lives to fully eradicate a medication from your body. So 500 hours is about 20 days until you are clear of the drug. The bigger question is were you prescribed that medication for a valid medical condition? If you have valid Rx it is ok to test positive as long as the condition and med doesn't impair you working safely at your job. ...Read more
