Xanax has a relatively short detection period, and in most cases the test would be negative within 3 -5 days.

In your case, you are in the range where a positive test would be likely.

There is unfortuantely nothing that you can do to speed the elimination of the drug from the body.

You should also be aware that mixing alcohol and benzodiazepines is a dangerous combination.

The various home remedies, supplements and products that you may find promoted on the web are not effective, and some are actually dangerous. Some of these products can actually cause your drug test to be reported adulterated (tampered) - which is treated the same as a positive.

Your best option is to delay the test if possible and to be REASONABLY well hydrated. Trying to chug fluids only going to cause your test to be reported DILUTE. Drinking about 2 quarts of water per day is adequate.
