Oxycodone withdrawal effects

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone withdrawal effects

oxycontin

Avatar m tn Cocaine withdrawal is merely psychological, where as, Opiate withdrawal is physical. Instead of reverting to smoking pot or taking another substance like Lyrica, I would suggest looking into vitamin, herbal and over the counter remedies to help you get by the first few days. Magnesium and Potassium both aid in neuromuscular communication, which will help your body alleviate your pain symptoms. Also, get yourself sone icy hot patches and take hot baths.

Avatar m tn If she is not having side effects from them, there is no need to rush the tapering process and go through withdrawal!
Avatar m tn I have endured the typical withdrawal symptoms - shivers, sweating, anxiety, tingling, and depression - as reported by many others. But I could not find good comments for other oxycodone withdrawal questions with this typical profile since many of the commenters have admitted to extensive oxycodone use in the past. My question: what's ahead for me? Am I over the bad part, or is there a lot more bad stuff to come? How long does the withdrawal effects last? Physically? Mentally?
1794671 tn?1338798991 I was hoping to do it around 7 months so if anything happens the baby will have a chance of survival, seeing as how withdrawal has a high chance of preterm labor. Well with my wonderful Kaiser (not good) doctor, the one that prescribes me ALL my diabetic supplies and pain management prescriptions, informed me that there is a lapse in my insurance and she won't be giving me anymore medication.
Avatar m tn What are the withdrawal symptoms and side effects from oxycodone? How long do they last?
Avatar f tn Anyone taking this drug should realize that if it is not working or is causing undesired side effects that are unbearable to handle, be wary about stopping suddenly or a careless weaning off this drug. I felt that my doctor did not forewarn me of the withdrawal effects once I stopped taking this medication.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to be allergic to oxycodone (percocet) If I am not allergic to Morphine or Vicoden?
Avatar f tn Well ended up in ER Sunday due to panic attacks. really bad ones. The withdrawal cravins were done but I was taking RESTERAL for sleep which is a derivative of Valium. Found out its another habit froming drug. They gave me 2mg;s of adavan in ER and watched me for hours. I rested completly there, and went home in the evening with a presc.. for VISTIRAL, a non habit forming med that will take care of panic attacks.
Avatar n tn Ok so I was taking oxycodone pain killers for about 1 1/2 years for my back issues. 10 mg pills and I was only taking anywhere from 1 to 1 and a 1/2 a day. Never exceeded that. However I started getting nervous that long term probably isn't good on my stomach. So I lowered my dosage last week to 3/4 of a pill for about 5 days then I quit last Friday. That's where the problems started. First 40 hours I felt like I had a strange low grade current running through my arms/legs.
Avatar m tn Omg, I' m trying to stop using oxycodone this is day 2 of not using and i can't take feeling like this. I've been hooked for 2 yrs and can't stand the person i've become, lying, stealing, hurting myself and others that care about me. My whole body is shaking, Ihad sweats real bad last night, restless legs, chills all symptoms, feeling worse today what hell will I have to endure tonight. wish I never took one pill. Trying to be strong but about to break!
Avatar f tn I have been taking 6-7 oxycodone 30mg for the last 4 months, prior to that 60-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. I desperately want off, and I want to go cold turkey. I have Clonodine, Neurontin, Clonazepam- all to help me with withdrawal. I get mixed results when I ask online if it's safe to withdraw from opiates cold turkey. Can someone answer me? I am in otherwise good health with the exception of a bulging disc in my back which started this whole ugly mess.
Avatar f tn Last left hospital in September on a mix of about 350 mg oxycodone or contin. I have two more surgeries ahead of me in the new year. But in the meantime I have become convinced that the oxycodone/contin is actually causing me pain. I have no idea how I am going to face the next surgeries but I CANNOT keep going on this particular road. So I have weaned myself down to 65 mg per day. Even so I am so jumpy, legs restless, stomache cramping ....
Avatar m tn I HAVE BEEN ON OXYCODONE FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND STARTED WITH 40 TO 50 MG A DAY AND WENT UP TO 90 MG A DAY FOR THE LAST THREE MONTHS> SUDDENLY 3 DAYS AGO I DROPPED TO 7.5 MG 3 TIMES A DAY , AND HAVE HARDLY NO SYMPTOMS. IS THIS GOOD. SHOULD I BE FEELING SOME WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS FROM DROPPING THAT FAR OF A DOSE FOR THE LAST THREE DAYS. I'VE SLEPT ALL NIGHT. THE VERY FIRST NIGHT A WOKE UP WITH STOMACH CRAMPS AND THE RUNS BUT THATS IT. I GUESS I FEEL A LITTLE DEPRESSED ,BUT NOTHING BAD.
Avatar f tn I have been on opiates on & off almost 2 years. The doctor switched me to oxycodone 6 months ago & I have been a daily user since then. I also take gabepentin & Baclofen for pain & muscle spasms the pain triggers. About 2-3 months ago I started feeling pressure in my ears & tinnitus in my right ear, especially at night. I saw my allergist and he said I might have hearing loss. Now I need to see an ENT to get my ears checked.
364605 tn?1200708575 Theres no reason, you just gotta be strong then. There will be No physical withdrawal at that point Definately. At that point your just battling small urges here and there when you see, hear, feel, or think of something that might trigger something in your head. Just gotta tell it to shut up cuz your clean and you love being clean. I never understood how people stay on suboxone, subutex or methadone for such a long *** time after they have quit the initial drug they are stuck on.
Avatar f tn I have morphine cr 45mg 3x/day which I asked to change due to side effects. Dr put me on Oxycodone 20mg 4x/day. After my back surgery recuperation I want to stop the meds. Which one should I be on for an easier withdrawal. I am scared because I have been on this for ages. When I have the surgery I can ask the dr to use the med that would be easier for me to withdraw so what do you think.
Avatar f tn Yes, it does sound like withdrawal. You were taking some pretty heavy duty pain medication there and I am not surprised. Did you not know they were addicting?
Avatar f tn i have no money for any type of treatment center and i don't know how to withdrawal at home without being in such bad pain for 8 days. can anyone help me?
Avatar m tn At the dose your at, I doubt doing a taper is going to do you alot of good over just quitting outright..Down dose if you like, but all that will do is have a tendency to keep you in an aggrevated state until you stop taking it..If it were me in your position, I would finish what I had and walk away..
994981 tn?1249567628 Suboxone will work if u use it for about a week to battle the immediate effects of the oc withdrawal. If u stay on subs longer your body will become dependent on subs and u will have to kick that. I've withdrawn from subs and the kick lasted 3 weeks... Not fun. You're in a bad spot, I would suggest detoxing with subs for about 7 days. 8mg on the first-4th day, 4mg days 5-6 then 2mg on day 7. Something along those lines.
Avatar m tn During this time I found through research oxycodone to be an effective symptom reliever especially during this period. I found this to be true and I took 5 to 7.5 mg ffor a period of time ( month or two) , I then found a book book about how to handle RLS without drugs and got off the oxycodone altogether in early 2012. I was able to handle my symptoms without oxycodone using hot baths and some other tricks to get to sleep .
