Re: How long do meds stay in your system.
It depends on the medication--every medication has a half-life, how long it takes for your levels to drop 50%. Some medications (e.g. xanax) clear the system very rapidly, in a matter of hours, others take several days (e.g. cymbalta). I assume (and hope) you are working with your doctor as you stop taking your medications, ask him or her how long your particular drugs will take to leave your system.
I do agree with the previous poster, they can't refuse to hire you because of prescription medications, and I think usually the companies doing the testing only report illegal medications to the employer, not prescription drugs.
