Hi there. I'm Dr Phil. It should last about 2-3 days in your system. Is this helpful?

I have read up to 14 days. i will wait to play it safe
Doctor: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 8 months ago
If you take it all the time it can accumulate and take that long. If you don't then it's usually 2-3 days. I agree with playing it safe though. I wish you good luck and happy holidays. Thanks for the question. Please don't forget a 5 star rating. I appreciate it. If you have any other questions just reply

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
