Half Life of drugs--what does it mean?

Posted by ruth on May 3, 1999, at 7:53:00

Can anyone explain to me in layman's terms
how the half life of drug works? here's a
practical example for you: I take 10 mg's of
celexa a day--I know the half life is 35 hours. How
long would it take for it to be out of my system
completely? Half of that? (like 18 hours?)
Does it depend on how long you take it?

I seem to be able to get away with taking the lowest
dose of celexa a few days a week (4 times a week) and
still have a therapeutic effect. Maybe it's b/c my
depression is mild, I don't know.
