    I plan to take alprazolam just before a medical test for High Blood preassure
    but will I be desiquilifiied for taking that drug?

    I have stress induced HBP I am thin and stress causes my BP to spike to 180-110 all the HBP drugs dont work I took 4 of them losartan amlodipine atelonol, captopril and my BP was still 180-110

    and only xanax reduces my HBP but will I be discualified for taking XANAX and I only would take xanax for the medical screeining and thats it, I DO NOT TAKE ANY MEDICATION becasue i am thin

    My apologies I had you confused with another poster.
    I'm not a doctor and I didn't even sleep in holiday day inn last night so I had to refer to the inter web.
    The internet says it's not a narcotic and that it is a schedule 3 medication.
    I don't know if a schedule 3 medication is ok or not.

    There are many tests it would show up on, all tests only show results for tested chemicals. Luckily for you, the standard DOT test is a 5 panel, which does not include barbiturates (xanax). However, companies may administer additional tests for their own hiring qualifications.

    Xanax will only show up if they're testing for it, which is unlikely. I hope you have a prescription for it. Maybe try a good BP med like clonidine instead.
     
    driverdriver and CrappieJunkie Thank this.
