The short answer is: YES.
And here is why.
Xanax, also known as Alprazolam, is a benzodiazepine. This is a major category of drugs that includes other “downers” such as Valium and Klonopin. Benzodiazepines have been around since the 1950s, and they present some significant withdrawal risks. So for practical reasons it is certainly no surprise that a Xanax Drug Test exists.
If you are on a benzodiazepine of any kind (Klonopin, Xanax, Valium, Ativan, etc.) the Xanax Drug Test will record a positive. It can detect benzodiazepines in urine 3-7 days after use.
Aside from being picked up on a single strip urine drug test, Xanax and benzodiazepines in general can be tested for in multi drug urine tests. Our 10 panel iCup test, as well as our 12 strip drug test, detect the presence of benzodiazepines in urine. The 12 strip test is known as the “construction test” as a gesture to the extent of drug testing that is done on construction sites.
So again, the short answer is – yes, Xanax can be drug tested for. Look for BZO, the abbreviation of benzodiazepine, or Xanax, or Valium when you are trying to purchase a Xanax Drug Test. With prescription drug abuse on the rise in the United States, this type of drug test will no doubt become increasingly common.
