Internal medicine internship in NYC with two decades of clinical experience. I am online and available to assist you today.
Just to be clear. You want to know if flexeril would be detectable in urine at this point when the last dose was taken in January? Is that correct?
Actually, not for today, but would it still be detectable 30 days after taking, with the other medications he took?
Is he concerned that any of the other medications, such as percocet, showing up?
No, just the flexeril
Ok. The time that a drug stays in your body, and therefor would be detectable in urine, is based on the drugs "half life".
To be "totally gone" the drug needs to have gone through 5 half lives since the last use.
Does this make sense to you so far?
I'm giving you the "extended answer" like you asked...so just bare with me :)
Flexeril has a half life of 18 hours......
so.... 5x18 is 90 hours. Or just under 4 days..
Of course, it is not that easy....this varies on how much and how long the drug was taken and it can vary from person to person.
He only took the two pills in January, not a chronic user
That being said I can not image any way that flexeril would be detectable 30 days after the last dose......
So. What is the take home message: No worries here....
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
Are you still there?
I guess you have stepped away from your computer.

I have asked a question 3x.
The question: 300 nanograms are the minimum requirement on the military urinalysis. will this be detectable with the other medications heis taking, or is 30 days enough time for no trace amt?
