In brief: ??

Almost all meds affect your liver when they get there.
From the stomach to the liver is only a few minutes... Most of the time your liver processes the meds and moves the breakdown products on smartly. If you are talking about how long it takes to kill you after you take a large enough overdose - the answer is onset with 24 hours and death in less than a week.
