Thought this might be interesting, or useful. You can see how long it takes on average for a specific drug to be (half) metabolized.

I have looked into the study of my medication and the half-life varied hugely. The average they give for my medication is feel is about 10 hours out for me as i think i am a fast metaboliser. I think whenever there is an average, there is going to be some awkward person like me who doesn't fit in.

My medication, people in the study were as low as 9 hours and as high as 34 hours, and the average came from those numbers i think of 26. I cannot remember, but it was as wildly different as that.
