It depends on which pills you are talking about! Generally speaking, each medication will take a different amount of time to leave your system.

The time it takes for a pill to leave your system will also vary from person to person. An individual's weight, age, gender and metabolism rate will have an effect on this, as will the amount that has been taken.

  • Numerous methods of drug testing can be used to determine the presence of drugs within someone's system.
  • Generally speaking, blood tests are only effectively for up to twenty-four hours, although some drugs such as benzodiazepines can be found within the blood for up to two days after they were taken.
  • Urine tests are normally only accurate for about a week after most drugs are taken - but some substances such as cocaine can be detected in the urine for up to a month.
  • Hair follicle tests are used when a longer-term drug history needs to be established. This type of drug screening can accurately find traces of drugs in your hair for up for three months, and sometimes longer.
