Brief Answer: 16-50 hours Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through. Xanax has an elimination period of 16-50 hours and is one of the intermediate acting benzodiazepines. Under normal circumstances, it will not persist in the system uptil 5 days. In future if you wish to use a benzodiazepine and afraid of drug results then under the supervision of your treating psychiatrist you may use oxazepam which is a very short acting benzodiazepine. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback. In future if you wish to contact me directly, you can use the below mentioned link: Wish you good health, Kind regards Dr. Srikanth Reddy M.D.
