How long does it take for benzodiazepines to get out of your system?
It really does depend, my doctor told me that they stay in based on the levels in your system. Xanax will show up initially, but clonipins need to have a certain level.
Generally it takes 48 to 72 hours. If you are taking a drug test, it would be best to wait at least 72 hours. If you have a valid need and a valid prescription for this, you shouldn't have to worry. If it's just a general knowledge question, like I said, about 72 hours.
It depends on you, what your dose is, what benzodiazepine you are on. If you are a long time user of benzodiazepines, or short time user. It can stay in your system for 1-5 days or 1-6 weeks, or up to 6 months. It just depends. The psycological dependency is more demanding. It will be "in your system" longer then the actual med.
Yes, for a once or twice use of a benzo, between 24 - 72 hours. I agree with the first answer. Otherwise if prescribed or addicted, can be detected much longer.
Klonopin has a half-life that can even reach as far as 90 hours, from a single dose.
BENZODIAZEPINE LEVELS BENZODIAZEPINES (ANTIANXIETY MEDS LIKE VALIUM, ATIVAN, XANAX,) can stay in your system anywhere from 48 hours to 72 hours. <<>> It depends on the amount of Benzodiazepines your taking. If it is a large amount the metabolites can last up to six weeks in your system. A small amount is usually out of your system in about 3-10 days.
There is no particular substance you can take that will get benzodiazepines out of your system. Water is the best way to gradually flush the drug out of your system. Drink as much water as you can tolerate until your urine is clear. If you have kidney or liver problems or retain fluid be sure to consult your doctor about consuming a large amount of fluid!
Xanax (generic name is Alprazolam) is in a class of drugs called benzodiazepines. Xanax has a short half life compared to some other benzodiazepines (Valium, Klonopin). Xanax will stay in your system for about 3-4 days if you only took one .50 tablet once. Some people will say 2-3 days but I say 3-4 just to be safe.
Valium, Xanax, and other depressants that work by reducing the function of the Central Nervous System. Kimber :) Actually, barbiturates and benzodiazepines are classes of drugs. So, the original question is problematic. (Also, just as a side note, the very definition of a depressant is that it inhibits/slows the working of the Central Nervous System.) Although, barbiturates and benzodiazepines produce similar effects and are often used for similar purposes, drugs fall into one category or…
No, no and NO!!!!! The chances of you going to sleep and not waking up are far too high! According to wikipedia's page on Suboxone " One French study showed a higher incidence of fatal overdose in patients who injected both buprenorphine and benzodiazepines, specifically, temazepam, together. Buprenorphine can be safely taken with prescribed benzodiazepines at normal dosage, as long as the patient is tolerant to either opioids or benzodiazepines, and the drugs are taken…
