Depends: If this was a one time use, it should be clear in a week, but if it was long-term it's less certain. Half-life range top is 48hrs, so you're probably good - but don't use it w/o Rx and that should satisfy a drug tester. It's good you care and use that motivation to stay clean! Best wishes.
