In brief: Depends on the drug

Different drugs have different rates that the body can eliminate them from the body.
The common measurement for this is "half life, " which describes the average time needed for the body to eliminate one-half of the current level of drug circulating in the body (it is always an estimate because people differ in their liver's capacity to metabolize different drugs).
