I've read it in the Wikipedia, it says it have a half-life of 18–50 hours.

When I went with my psychiatrist he told me the effect was of 6-8 hours, I told him I've read it the half-life of it was more like 18-50 hours, he told the effect of the drug (what you feel when you take it) and the half-life of it are different things, but I've experienced (or think I've had) its effects for much more than 6-8 hours.

Is anybody here certain of how much long its effects lasts?

It depends on your weight, how much you take and how long youve been taking it for.
I took it for 10 months and got like 10+ hrs for me. I only took it at night because it made me tired and depressed when I took it in the day

There is no definitive answer since it will affect everybody differently. The average range is probably 8-12 hours +/- 2 hours. It also depends on how you take it, some people take it twice a day and always feel like it's working. The half life tells you almost nothing about the duration of effect.

In other words, take one and see how long it lasts FOR YOU.

I took 2-4 mg last night over a period of 6 hours and I still feel the effects. I feel like I have a hangover. I feel sluggish with no motivation to do anything.

I was diagnosed with social anxiety, depression and generalised anxiety. Schizoid and avoidant they said couldn't be diagnosed until my 20s (though I show most symptoms), and OCD I never really told them about because it only appears from time to time.

What've you got?
