Official Answer by Drugs.com 23 Jun 2010

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

It takes approximately 5.5 x elimination half-lives for a medicine to be cleared from your body.

So metformin will be in your system for 96.8 hours (5.5 x 17.6 hours) which is approximately 4 days.
