Unanswered: What is the drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

Swim made a thread similar to this but swim is facing significant jail time and needs specifics.. swim read the stickied drug testing thread and it explained benzodiazpine use shows up on a drug test for anywhere from 1-42 days and swim would like to know something more precise & would really appreciate any feedback.

Swim took 3 mg of ativan hours after completing a court ordered drug test on Thursday the 23rd, which swim is required to do randomly for a year. Swim saw on one website the detection period was 7-10 days for one time use which is why i went ahead and took the 3mg dose.... then today i saw it was 1-42 day detection period on this site and now im freaking out. Whats a realistic amount of time that the one dose will be detected, please help me here and thanks in advance.

Kodeen Fiend added 4 Minutes and 18 Seconds later...

swim forgot not to self-incriminate half-way through, sorry. Anyway it took them 30 days to call swim in for his first drug test after being released from jail, so swim figured they wont call him in for another drug test the very next... Swim is thinking about trying to obtain an ativan prescription just in case, but the chances of that seem very slim. Don't forget to answer my question up there about the 3mg ativan detection time

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

7-10 days for a single use is what I'm seeing. That's urine tests. It would be detectable in hair longer. I doubt you have anything to worry about unless they call you in the next couple of days. You shouldn't be taking anything that can get you in trouble if you're this worried about it. The punishments can be very strict in our great state of KY.

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

appreciate the response... and yes the consequences would be great if swim failed, 330 days in the shithole of county jail... it took them 30 days or so before they did the first drug test on Thursday so swim figures they wont hit him with another drug test the very next week, and swim saw on most websites that a single dose would be in the system 7-10 days, so swim said F*** it and went ahead and took the pills.

If anybody else has another opinion on the subject feel free to respond.

And to any moderators swim apologize if this is covered in another thread, but swim didnt see any specific detection time on benzodiazepines in any other thread. Just the vague 1-42 which swim knows isn't correct bc swims drug testing agency told swim marijuana wont even show on urine tests if you stay abstinent for a month to a month & a half.

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

Benzodiazepines is a LARGE class of drugs. Their duration of effect and detection times can vary considerably based on how the body processes the drug. Some benzodiazepines are designed to last a long time and stick around in the body.

Ativan or lorazepam is a short-acting benzodiazepine, meaning that it is one of the benzodiazepines that does not stick around very long.

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

if swim took 3 more mg tonight and 3 mg tomorrow would it still be 7-10 on the urine test?

Kodeen Fiend added 0 Minutes and 50 Seconds later...

its been 1 week since swim took the last 3 mg, they never drug tested swim, which swim knew they wouldnt this week at least

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

Dude, you were all worked up about getting tested in the first post, now you're asking if you should use again? Ugh...

I think you already know the answer you're going to get here. I'd still wager you use anyway though.

But look at it like this, is a ativan buzz for a few hours worth spending a year in jail for?

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

SWIM is a 5' 7" 120lb male and has taken 5mg of lorazepam exactly 7 days before a LAB test with GC/MS confirmation and passed. Lorazepam is not very soluble in fat compared to other benzos like diazepam and it also has a short half life and no active metabolites. SWIM would say 3 - 7 days is adequate time for a one time use of lower doses depending on your body type the skinnier the better though. If SWIY feels the need to take benzos take alprazolam(xanax) it is out usually in 3 days and has a better buzz.
EDIT: Also its benzos are similar to pot for testing in that the more SWIY uses them consecutively as in a break short than 7 days the more it will build up and have a higher chance in showing up.

AddyCrazy added 2 Minutes and 24 Seconds later...

Also if SWIY wants to get buzzed and is getting DTed opiates are the best drug to do if he is willing to take the risk on even benzos.

good info. was much needed on the topic

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

^ that was really helpful thanks for that response, thats what swim was looking for, not advice on decision making. Swim is working on getting a prescription so swim can dodge a failed drug test if it happens. Do they test for the exact benzodiazepine on lab drug tests or just for the general category? Does that matter??, say if you take ativan, it shows up on a drug test, but only have a prescription for, say valium ? Would swim fail? speaking hypothetically here obviously

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

Depends on who does the test SWIM supposes but most likely they will do a GC/MS which will tell what specific benzodiazepine metabolites are present.

In the US they are required to do confirmation/quantification testing for criminal or forensic purposes.

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

Ok, here's one more question: for example, say if swim has been taking ativan, but gets a prescription for valium, so he stops taking ativan (it was just 5mg in 1 day at once) and starts taking valium... will taking the valium in any way increase the amount of ativan in your system? or will the ativan slowly leave your system regardless if you begin taking another benzodiazepine?

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

No. Valium (diazepam) and Ativan (lorazepam) do not share any metabolites tested for. Stopping use of lorazepam will cause levels of lorazepam to decrease over time.

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

if you take 3-5 mg a week of ativan (and thats it, no more) will it build up in your system? or do you have to use it on a more frequent basis for it to stay in your system longer than 7-10 days??

@jasim, help me out with this question

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

I did some digging. There's no evidence of accumulation of lorazepam for up to 6 months of chronic use. It doesn't stick around like some of the other benzodiazepines. Lorazepam is eliminated rather quickly from the body for a benzodiazepine. I saw one reference that detected lorazepam in the urine for up to a week with clinical doses (2.5mg). At the doses you mentioned it should be gone by 10 days. I can't speak for higher recreational doses.

Wait, I'm unclear. Do you mean 3-5 mg once a week? or daily for a week?

Re: drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

just 3-5 mg takin at once, one time.... and thats all for the whole week. to answer your question..


so it wont continue to build up in your system as long as swim takes the 3-5 mg on one day (all at once) and doesnt take anymore until 7 days later, right??? this is what swim has been doing.

Kodeen Fiend added 1 Minutes and 27 Seconds later...

another question i have for you jasim,..... is clonazepam a short acting or long acting benzodiazepine when we're talking about how long they will show up on a urine test..??

Re: What is the drug detection time for 1 time ativan use?

A single time Lorazepam usage will be detectable for up to 1-2 days. A more chronic administration of drug will extend that window of detection to 1-4 days or so. Of course, it is highly dependent on dosage of drug consumed. Typical confirmatory cutoffs are 10-300 ng/mL.
