Thank you for your question:

As a board certified medical review officer, I would like to offer a different opinion.

Your use of Xanax (alprazolam) can be detected through urine drug tests for longer than 3 days. The typical detection period for the metabolites of this drug are in the 5 day (not 3 day) range.

 

I will be happy to provide you with a reference if you need one. Please let me know if you need additional information.
