Ketoconazole has a half life of about 2 hours. This means that half of it is eliminated from your body after 2 hours, then half of the remaining amount is gone after another 2 hours and so on. After a couple of days it will be mostly gone from your system. Compared to many other drugs it is eliminated very quickly from the body.
