Usually, antibiotics such as tetracycline will be eliminated from the blood approximately twenty-four hours after they were taken.

However, if you are still concerned about this medication then it would be best to talk to your doctor or pharmacist.

The time it takes for any drug to leave your system will be dependent on a variety of factors:
  • Metabolism has a big impact on how long your body takes itself to get rid of substances, and metabolic rates vary from person to person.
  • Your age could also affect how long it takes to get rid of tetracycline. Generally speaking, the older you are, the longer it should take to leave the system, although this will vary from person to person.
  • Your weight has an effect on your body's metabolism, and therefore may also have an effect on how long it takes your system to cleanse itself. Fat cells normally store traces of medication.
Although tetracycline should be out of your blood within twenty-four hours, it could take much longer for some individuals.
