      12 hours is a very short window for detox. Cocaine may get invisible, if you are very aggressive, however, its metabolite, benzoylecgonine may still be seen after 12 hours.

    I’ve been told that niacin is a good way to eliminate marijuana from the system. Does the same go for cocaine? Let’s say I haven’t done it for years and did maybe one line yesterday. I exercise hard 5 days a week and don’t drink soda or much caffeine just plenty of water. I am also taking 250mg of niacin to cleanse my body of marijuana which I haven’t done in about a month.

      Niacin may be helpful to cocaine excretion as well.

      This is a vitamin. The best method of detoxification is taking plenty of fruits and vegetables. They are the best source of all essential vitamins and minerals.

      It is difficult to detoxify yourself in such a short time period. However, it’s worth giving a full try.

      Drink plenty of water, no alcohol or caffeine. Stay active physically. Include lots of fruits and vegetables in your diet.

    Will it hurt to exercise the day of the test?
    What should my pretest regime be?
    Will a test like first check provide and accurate baseline of where I’m at?
    Trying to pass a possible test 4 days out after about 4 grams. Non habitual user, drank while using. Have been following your other recommendations.
    Will a liver cleanse from a GNC help at all?

    1. Buddy M.D. Post author

      You may exercise, there’s no harm. Drink plenty of water and fruit juices before the test.

      The home kits available for testing are quite accurate. They may be tried for an estimate.

My email is in case I miss your reply. I weigh 105 I’m 23 years old and I’m 4’9 I don’t eat much I am a cigarette smoker.

    1. Buddy M.D. Post author

      You need to be very aggressive about cleansing. Abstain completely from alcohol, smoking, tea and coffee. All these would retard drug elimination from the body.

      Flush it off by drinking plenty of water. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables in all your meals.

      You have a chance to pass.

    I snorted 1 gram of cocaine on the 8th into the morning hours of the 9th and drank a large amount of alcohol as well. I not a heavy cocaine user and never have been however over the last 3 or 4 months ive done small amounts say a few lines about once a month. i do drink heavily. I am 5’8 and about 190lbs. I naturally have a high metabolism. I will be following all of the recommendations for detoxing i’ve read on this site. I have a UA on the morning of the 26th. How likely am I to pass?

  9. Goz

    I did cocaine last Friday night. Not a very large amount. Alcohol was involved that night. Next day, I only drank beer. 2 weeks before that I had done another small amount. About 2 lines too. Today is Friday again. So it has been 7 days since I last used it. It has been five days of drinking lots of water about 1 gallon a day. Detoxifying my liver and taking vitamin b complex. I have hit the sauna 3 times and may go today again. I am 29 yrs old 180 weight. Have a good metabolism, which means I sweat easily and a lot. I have a urine drug test Monday, which means it will be 9 days after last use. This test will be sent to a lab. Which means I will need to be less of a cut off level of 150/ng to pass. Will I pass a lab test?

    Also note that I’m not a heavy user or addicted. But for the past few months I’ve done little amounts in between 2 to 3 weeks. I also took a home drug test with a cut off level of 300ng and I passed.

  10. Jake

    I used cocaine and alcohol last night and the time before that 2 weeks ago. And before that maybe 3 months ago. I exercise regularly eat very healthy always drink lots of water and don’t smoke. How mamy days wil it take to be ready to pass the test?

    1. Buddy M.D. Post author

      Depends upon the amounts and quality of drug consumed, your rate of metabolism, weight, gender and many other factors.

      In general, 15 to 20 days.

  11. Teddy

    3 weeks ago my friend did about .7 grams, 2 weeks ago days ago one small line, and 1 day another small line. How long would it take for this to not show up on urine test?

  12. Bob

    Did about 1 gram of cocaine on the 17th and drank about 5 beers with it. Have a probation drug test that is sent to the lab on monday the 27th. Im 5’7 150 pounds. I drink a lot of soda and dont eat too well, but I do have a fast metabolism. I have exercised 3 times this week and have been drinking more water than usual. I plan on exercising again tomorrow and drinking a lot of water all day and only eating fruit. What are my chances of passing this test?? I am very worried

    1. Buddy M.D. Post author

      If this was a one time use of the drug, you’re likely to pass.

      However, if you use it on and off frequently, the drug is likely to have developed a storage in the body. In such cases, it may show up.
