Acetazolamide: The half-life of acetazolamide is 10-15 hours. So that means that by roughly 15 hours, half of it has cleared, and half is still in the body. The concentration cotinues to be cut in half every 15 hours. Depending on the dosage and frequency, it lasts in the body for at least a few days.

Regular Tablets?: Absorbed from your gastrointestinal tract after 30- 90 minutes with peak levels at approximately 4 hours. Total duration of blood level varies from 8-12 hours. All of these values are quite variable as you can see depending on rate of absorption in the gut, and how quickly it is excreted--unchanged--through the kidneys.
