Its  really hard to say how long, so many things come into play such as what you take, how much, how long, healthwise etc.  Best to not take any chances at all.  We have members on here who have liver damage and they may be better at giving you more precise info........sara

I was told by my doctor tonight that when it happens, its sudden.. She said there are few warning signs and mostly it comes a surprise..

everyone is different...so there is no true time frame...someone can use for many years without any liver damage//another can use for months and have damage....best not to chance it
