I just need to know how long approximately it takes for metronidazole in the pill form to leave your system?? I was told 24 hours
The elimination half life of metronidazole is approximately 8 hours. It takes 5.5 x elimination half life for a medicine to be completely cleared from the body. Therefore it will take about 44 hours (5.5 x 8 hrs) for it to be cleared from your system.
For more information see:

- Side Effects of Metronidazole (detailed)
