I've taken 12. 25mg alpralozam tabs sparingly in the past 2 days. I could possibly have a urine drug screen monday or tuesday morning. Will I pass?

Percocet half-life: Plasma half life is 3-5 h (half that of morphine). It takes approximately 6 half lives for a drug to be eliminated from your system. 5*6/24= 1.25 days.

I had. 25mg Xanax (alprazolam) before having perm make-up done. Had pre-employment urine drug screen next day and totally forgot. Will it show up?

Can't say: Some employers do screens for many, many drugs and if they screen for benzodiazepines it may well show up, although it is a very low dose of a benzo that often escapes detection on standard screens. If the Xanax (alprazolam) was prescribed by a physician for you, then you only need to show them the prescription. If it wasn't, you shouldn't have been taking it and you may be at risk if they are testing for it. ...Read more
