The offending agent in Lotrel was probably the amlopidine (Norvasc). This calcium channel blocker has an extremely long half life indeed (30-50) hours, but after 6 weeks I'm sure its gone enought to have only miniscule amounts left. It took me a couple weeks to stop feeling the Norvasc!

I had trouble with nadolol a long time ago with it's 72 hour half life, but 2 weeks pretty much did the job.

(For record keepsers, a metabolite of Plavix (clopidogrel) has an active half life of 3 WEEKS)
