Answer
    Rarely do doctors perform test to quantify how much Xanax you are taking.  Testing for this is very expensive.  Most tests are just for the presence of a drug, not the amount present.  If you take a tablet the night before your exam it will most likely show that you have the presence of Xanax in your system.  If your doctor is actually testing you blood levels, there is no reliable way to alter it.  If it is a urine test there is no way to alter the result that can not be detected by the testers.

Thanks
