BUFFLA sorry not one good answer for everyone here due to veribales did they taper you off..but it stays in the system glad you are off but i would guess it won't be long and you well feel much better I would think at the worse is a week to 10 days if they tapered you off and maybe sooner it depends on the dose you were on how high etc but if you are tapered off you really should be feeling good in a short time hope they just did not stop it cold..Chuck1957
