Oxycodone withdrawal symptoms length

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone withdrawal symptoms length

oxycontin

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 ....
Opiate withdrawal symptoms usually start 12-24 hours after your last dose. But, the timing of withdrawal symptoms depends upon the drug taken, length of time you’ve been taking it, and how you react to medications. The physical withdrawals usually last 3-7 days, with days 3 and 4 being the worst. Once again, this is all dependent on the person. You can expect these symptoms.
You should be rightly proud of yourself. Some of your symptoms may be a little delayed, possibly due to the length of time you were using, but they do tend to settle between day 5 and day 7 so you're still within the time frame, and hopefully you'll feel much better soon. I would recommend immodium and drinking plenty of waster. 5HTP from you healthfood shop is very helpful, and Valerian and Melatonin can help to improve your sleep.
Hi there & Welcome :) First off, you are not 'WeakAndPowerless' though you may feel that way right now! Congrats on making the decision to come off of opiates & Xanax & for posting. Okay, down to brass tacks: You've got a couple of things on your side: you're young & you were only on M'done for a couple of months though I'm not sure how long you were using your DOC's. While your Norco/Oxy habit was substantial it was not 'massive' per se.
blood pressure, heart rate and dehydration (diarrhea and vomiting are usually the most common factors). The severity and length of withdrawal varies, and is based on each patient’s health and metabolism. In most cases, the withdrawal symptoms last for about 4 days to a week. Make sure to keep hydrated – drinks like Propel and SmartWater which have electrolytes will help. Do not consume any sugars or caffeine as these will elevate your anxiety and muscle pain.
I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
With the controlled release of the med I'm taking now, things seem to be on an even keel compared to the abrupt ups and downs of the shorter acting narcotics like hydrocodone and oxycodone. As I've said time and again, all I want is a state of equilibrium in my life where everything seems to be safe and secure....and pain free! I suppose that's a lot to ask for as a human being? Somebody said above that they went fifteen years in hell before discovering a med that offered some relief.
That is quite a large dosage and by only taking 75 instead of 150 you will experience heavy symptoms of withdrawal. I'm not going to give you any advice but sometimes you need counselling and any help to get you through it, whatever you do don't get down on yourself if you slip or realise you have an addiction, just deal with it and get help any way you can with confidence and knowing that if you do have a problem you're not the only one.
But, the timing of withdrawal symptoms depends upon the drug taken, length of time you’ve been taking it, and how you react to medications. The physical withdrawals usually last 3-7 days, with days 3 and 4 being the worst. Once again, this is all dependent on the person. You can expect these symptoms. Dilated pupils, diarrhea, runny nose, goose bumps, abdominal pain, stomach cramps, sweating, agitation, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, leg cramps, general aches and pains, and sleeplessness.
For example, people taking morphine, hydromorphone, or oxycodone may experience withdrawal symptoms within 6 to 12 hours of the last dose while people taking methadone will experience symptoms 3 to 4 days after the last dose. How many symptoms you experience, how long you experience them, and how severe your symptoms are depends on your body’s individual response, how long you’ve been taking the medications and the dose and type of opioid.
I realize I should try and exercise but I swear some hours it is all I can to just stand for any length of time. I have NO appetite whatsoever and I realize this lends to my drained feeling. Please give me some indication when this fatigue feeling will end. I attend NA mtgs (oddly I feel better at nite) and the first 48 hour withdrawal is over. Should I get my liver checked due to the tylenol?
Today is my first day of trying to quit oxycodone cold turkey. The withdrawals were so bad that I started taking the otc cold/flu liquid to try and ease the shakiness, cold sweats chills etc. is this safe? I am a single mother of a two year old, this extremely hard trying to do this alone when my child demands so much of my attention. I was irritable, aggravated all day and the least little thing set me off.

I stopped cold turkey taking 40mg of oxycontin twice a day and 15mg oxycodone 4 times a day. The first 2 days weren't all that fun but now I'm totally over it. Why is it not dragging out for 2 weeks for me? I admit I just took as prescribed but I did that for over a year. The pain is now *WOW* I sleep very fitfully from pain but I think I'll get better at that. How come for me it was over so easily? Is there something different if you abuse?

After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW! Serious withdrawal symptoms including joint and muscle pain, stomch issues, fatigue, depression and a strange hollowness in my nerves ensued. I didn't feel I could just stop functioning for a week or two or whatever it would take, so I used some hydrocodone that I had to help me get my tramadol use down to 100mg per day over the course of a week.
I am convinced that these are the symptoms of codeine/hydrocodone withdrawal. WHAT do I do about this? I can't STAND it!!! I have three children to take care of (two of them are babies). I can't take care of myself now because I am "sick" so to speak. I have been completely honest with my husband about this. He agrees that this is probably withdrawal, I need to do "cold turkey" (what choice do I have anyway?) and tough it out for the next week or so.

after recovering from that I stopped taking them and had NO withdrawel symptoms, , , , , , , , Had major dental problems. . . . more pain meds. ,. . . . serious neck problems. . . . more pain meds. Anyways you get the picture and my story is NO different than any others. I am also a recovering alchoholic and am very involved in step work and trust me when I say I "GET ADDICTION"!!! So, needless to say I am aware of what is going on here. 4 days ago I decided this has to go. . . .
and your symptoms will vary, by usage, age, and length of time you have been using. Don't mess with DETOX and High Blood Pressure on your own... Please take this for what it is worth. Go to your Doctor and get some help. I know there is a lot he/she can do to help you... and some of us just don't want to go into a Detox Center. Cloindine is often prescribed for Blood Pressure while detoxing and various other things... but your DR will help you.
What will the withdrawal be like? Anything I can do as far as over the counter products or easy to obtain herbal or natural remedies? Please answer fast.

Is there a difference in withdrawing from oxycontin vs. oxycodone or are the symptoms the same and will the time withdrawing be the same? 5. The pain clinic has told me when I want to get off or cut down they will help me taper down and I'll have "no problem." Is that true? When I taper this down, will I escape withdrawal symptoms or will I still have some? 6. I wonder is my dosage increasing because I'm tolerant or because my pain is getting worse?
I ended up tapering, and took my last (or so I thought) 10 mg pill two weeks ago tomorrow. It's been rougher than I expected, with ongoing wd symptoms, notably the stomach stuff (the kind that call for Immodium), and worst of all, depression and anxiety. Last weekend I found a stray pill from the trial. Since they were all encased in this gray shell, I had to pull it apart to see what dose it was. Damn, only a 10 mg.
The pain has resumed with a vengance, and I have started to have symptoms which I now see are withdrawal. Hot/cold flashes, sweating, irratibility, unable to sleep, difficulty swallowing, lethargy and severe depression. Luckily I found this site before I killed myself. My new PCP is an excellent Dr, caring and sensitive but I think we both need a better schedule. Suggestions welcome, also, what can I replace the Oxy with as I have to keep working? Thank you for your time.
Hey Gijay, How horrible are your withdrawal symptoms? That's a pretty steep jump down from 2 1/2 8's down to 4mg....... i had to taper from 4mg down to 2mg (which i noticed a difference) and then from 2mg to 1mg then 1mg every other day for a couple of days then i stopped. I hope you are still holding strong, let me know your progress.
About a year ago I decided I wasn’t going to let pills rule my life anymore so I weaned myself off of them very gradually. Even though I still felt lot of the withdrawal symptoms you all have described, the physical aspect was not as bad as the psychological. I became extremely depressed and began mourning and reliving my wife’s death again and it got worse. I couldn’t handle the depression and lack of interest in life so I began taking the pills again.
Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
