It partially depends on your body mass.: The half-life of the medication is from 12 to 20 hours. This means by the end of the first day that you have stopped taking it probably half of the medication is out of your system. By the next day half of whatever left is I is gone from your system and so on. So it really depends on how much you are taking and how much fat stores you have to get rid of it entirely. I hope this gives you at least a ballpark figure ...Read more

Maybe not...: Gaba is not an fda-approved medication, so it is not known for sure what effects and side effects GABA has.
