Several weeks: Most doctors will tell you that the withdrawal symptoms should subside within a few weeks of withdrawal. If your symptoms subside within a few weeks, consider yourself lucky and in the minority. Most people experience withdrawal effects over a month after they have quit their medication. Giving yourself at least 90 days before evaluating the withdrawal symptoms is a safer bet. See link for details
