In brief: 5 half lives

For every pill you swallo it takes 5 half lives to get out of your body.
.. Longest half life is for Prozac (fluoxetine) which is one week.. That means maximum is 35 days to completely get out of your body.... In general most meds take about 5-7 to get out of your system... There is a lot more to say here but that is the general idea.....
