Prescribed 2mg Xanax 4x a day taken it only for 7 day cuz my opiate dependence methadone place turned down for the Xanax what is Xanax detection time?

Long half-life: The elimination half-life of xanax is about 11.2-26.9 hours. It takes almost 6 elimination half-life's for a drug to be cleared from the human body. Well...
