Anthony Tornay, MD responded:
I'm not sure what levels you mean.

There really is nothing to measure in terms of brain chemistry. Acute withdrawal symptoms last from 1-7 days, but the brain may not 'normalize' for months.

Other organs, such as the liver, pancreas, etc. may take many months to get back to the best they can be.
