Depends: I hate giving that type of answer but unfortunately it is appropriate here. In general it would take approximately anywhere from 18 hours to 2 1/2 -3 days. If you have kidney failure it would be longer. This is based on the drug's "half life" - the time it takes for half the drug to leave the body.
