Will taking Mogadon along with alcohol show up in urine test?

Posted on Wed, 17 Jun 2015 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: Hello, the question is: I took 20mg of Mogadon in one take 10 days ago, drunk some alcohol (a lot) the same night. Could it still show on a urine test? I'm male 44, 160 pounds, 5'8 feet.

Brief Answer:
mogadon can test positive after 5-7 days of intake.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.

Mogadon (nitrazepam) has average half life of 30 hours.
It can stay in your system for as long as 5-7 days even after single intake.
However, there is no sure shot way to determine exact duration.

I think, after 10 days of drug use, you should not test positive.

Hoping for your luck to favour you as well.

Further queries are welcome.

20mg is quite a lot, so in your opinion a single intake of 20mg should not show in Urine/drug test, right?

Brief Answer:
should not show in urine in my opinion.

Detailed Answer:
I know its a heavy dose.

But I still believe that it should not test positive in urine after 10 days.
Because it was just a single intake.

But then, these estimates are not exact. Actually there is nothing like exact estimation of time.

I feel you would be unlucky if you test positive.

Take care.
