Brief Answer: Xanax will be clear from body in a week Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to healthcare Magic! Bet detox is to cut down the doses of Xanax in fractions over a months time. Ensure hydration of about 3 liters intake per day. Xanax is alprazolam which is a good anxiety reducing drug, helpful for panic attacks and has sleep modifying effects. The drug must be prescribed and handled in supervision of a local physician and should be tapered slowly. Decide to stop if your physician is convinced that you can do without it. Flush discontinuing may lead to fits The drug usually exits the system to undetectable levels in 7 days, if liver function tests are normal. I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you. Take Care!

Brief Answer: Hydration to wash out the drug from system fast Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to healthcare magic. Cold XXXXXXX is termed flush stopping in medical terminology. The drug goes out of system in average 7days, it gets washed out through urine hence to ensure good flow and amount of urine hydration is to be ensured by taking liberal fluid intake. I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
