    go off

    Can you tell me what is the meaning of the phrasal verb 'go off' in the following sentences:

    1.She went off in a bad temper.

    2.The effect of the drug will go off after few hours.
    (the effect will stop or will start after few hours)

    (the effect will stop or will start after few hours) The effect will stop. "The effect of the drug will wear off..." is a more common collocation.
