Question by  naralayna (1)

Will 5mg of Diazepam taken 36 hours prior show up on a 5 panel urine test?


Answer by  bdcooley (51)

Diazepam is a drug often prescribed for anxiety. It produces some side effects which may cause a person to have slower reaction times and drowsiness. Diazapam, taken in tablet form, is mostly metabolized in the body but some of the byproducts can be excreted in the urine for up to 6 weeks.

It depends on what the test is set to detect. The drug will be detectable in the body for four to ten days.

Diazepam is a benzodiazepine and does show up on most urine drug screens. Its half life is 30-60 hours. Therefore, it likely would show up on this urine test.


Answer by  quisqualis (1756)

Diazepam and its residues will not be entirely out of your system in 36 hours, so it will show up on a urine test. The half-life of diazepam is around 30-50 hours, so in 36 hours you probably will have half of the diazepam you took still in your body. Drug tests are quite sensitive, so it will show up.

Yes it can. I know that for a fact. Sometimes it will show up,others times not. I would recommend that if you can refrain for the pills that you do so when taking this test.
