Metformin has an elimination half-life of approximately 17.6 hours.

It takes approximately 5.5 x elimination half life's for a medicine to be cleared from your system, therefore it'll be in your system for that long.

So metformin will be in your system for 96.8 hours i.e. 4 days (5.5 x 17.6 hours).
