In brief: Need to now the half

It depends on which member of this family called benzodiazapenes yiu are taking.
Librium and Valium last a long time and tend to accumulate in tissue.They are around 20-24 hrs or longer. Ativan and Xanax (alprazolam) last only 3-4 hrs. Ultra short lasting members of the family are used in anesthesia. So the effect when they do wear off ranges from none to a return of your original symptoms[relapse] to addition.
