Everyone is different. When its taken for acute pain, you're not going to get dependent on it, chronic pain yes you will. This isn't a bad thing, all it means is you have to be weaned off the med. Its a normal physiological response to many medications.

Physically? 2-3 weeks, but that varies from person to person. The real issue is behavioral.

It really depends on your tolerance and how many you're taking. It could be anywhere from a week to a month.
