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?

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
