Overall, your body metabolizes about 50% of the medication every 10 hours.

So that means at 20 hours, 75% of it will be gone.
At 30 hours, 87.5% will be gone.
At 40 hours, 94% will be gone.
At 50 hours, 97% will be gone.

Of course, the actual "effects" of the medication you feel will have long been over, before the actual level of medication leaves your system.

so if i take a mouth sawb 3 days later it wont show up

It can be detected in the urine about 48 hours.

In oral fluid this can be 72 hours.

Of course, these numbers are just estimates, and depend on the dose taken, as well as your body's individual metabolism for the drug.

One medical study showed that taking 20mg of the drug produced a positive test on average 74 hours after taking the dose.

But at 10mg, this average was 25 hours.

So to give a specific number would be misleading.

Well, like I said, it's impossible to know for sure, because everyone's body is different, but it is unlikely to show up.
