It will take a while for the drug to work out of your system.

What exactly or literally 'work out of your system' means ?

1 Answer 1


The phrase "work out of your system" is a somewhat informal way of saying:

It will take a while for your body to metabolize the drug so that its traces are no longer in your system.

But the intent is to indicate that the process of the body eliminating the drug takes some time.
