I would say about 15 minutes or so and you normally well start feeling some relief when your using it as needed, But if your on it regular they try and give it so the doses overlap so you don't have to worry about how long it takes.Hope that well help Have an nice evening. Chuck1957.
About 15 to 30 minutes on the norm and in about 45 minutes you should feel the full effects that should last for about 6 to 8 hours, just depends on your metabolism. For me I get about 6 to 7 hours of relief and when I start to get adjtated I will take another tab. Most times for me one is enough.
