Just stopped 6mp

I stopped taking 6mp just over 2 weeks ago because it's probably the cause of my elevated liver enzymes. Does anyone know how long it takes to get out of your system? I had been on 6mp at 50mg for 2 years, and was taking 100mg from 11/10-3/11. I just had labs drawn today but the doctor wasn't sure if enough time had passed for the levels to go down.

Not sure. I'm trying to figure that out as well.. I heard 8 hours.. but some say 20 hours.. i have noticed that since i stoped taking it (almost 2 days ago now) that i have many things back such as the arthristis and burning eyes... but i'm not sure how long it takes to get out of your system totally. and i only took it for a little over 5 months..
