Narcotic withdrawal?: Of withdrawing from narcotics (opioids) like morphine, oxycodone, etc, the best way to deal with pain is to have the narcotic prescriber provide a tapering dose. If withdrawing from illegally obtained narcotics, that's tougher. Most physicians will not provide narcotics to anyone using them illegally, unless in the hospital or an addiction treatment program.

Withdraw: Hi, what kind of withdraw are we talking about? Opioid? Other Illicit drugs? Pain medications? In any case you need to see a pain specialist.

Withdrawal from ?: I assume you are talking about opiates. Use of tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAIDs like Ibuprofen or Naproxen will reduce pain, as will hot baths, hot back, hot showers. Massage and acupuncture can also help. If withdrawal symptoms are severe and you are at risk of relapse, get help with medically assisted withdrawal. Many meds, like clonidine, Buprenorphine and Methadone can help short or long-term.Get support!
