Stupid pee test Monster Max and Destry's 3 kids; Xenia, Ohio 9113 posts

So I have had my job for 4.5 months and they just sprang a drug test on me. Only thing that will be in there is possibly benzodiazepines. I have a 3 year old prescription for ativan that I've held on to for panic attacks. I know the script is no longer valid so the ativan that I took on Saturday might fail me. Does anyone know if it will show up 3 days later? I am 110lbs and moderately active. I've been drinking a good amount of water. But I don't know if 3 days is long enough for it to have passed through my system. I'm getting mixed answers on google so if anyone has any help I'd appreciate it. And before anyone asks me why I don't just get an updated rx, it's because I no longer have insurance and can't afford to see a doctor for my anxiety. Thanks in advance. Please dont quote this.

I don't really think you could get in trouble for that. As long as you're not shooting up heroin/doing other crazy drugs, you should be fine.

I'm sure it will be fine if I don't have to show my rx but if I do I'm fucked. Do they just ask you or do they need proof? Because I have none.

They'll need proof. Call the doctor that prescribed it and explain the situation and ask him to write you out something. Easy peasy.
