Not long if lucky: If you do not develop rare but possible life threatening issues from the drug and you are speaking of the "anticoagulation" effects sort of like aspirin, it is a weak anticoagulant and only lasts a few hours after the last dose.

Very short: Probably as short as 6 hours. Definitely less than 1 day. As opposed to Aspirin which takes a week to wear off.
