I just had to take a pre employment drug test. It was observed

Resolved Question:

I just had to take a pre employment drug test. It was observed and no-way was my bladder going to work in front of someone. My bladder was full and I had just finished drinking 40 ounces of water. I then took one .5 mg atavan. 30 minutes later I was able to take my urin test. Do you think the atavan will show up on my test.

Welcome to just answer...

Did you take Ativan so that you could take your urine test?

Thank you...

Well the peak plasma levels after taking Ativan are achieved after 2 hours of taking the drugs... And it remains in the circulation from a period of 6-48 hours after which it is eliminated...

So if you took Ativan half an hour before taking your drug test, it is very unlikely that it shows up in the urine...

I hope this answers your question...

Thank you...
