Dr. Jeffrey Roth
Addiction Medicine 43 years experience
Days to weeks: The physical symptoms rarely last longer than a week, but the cravings may last much longer. Consider attending a meeting of narcotics anonymous. If you are at risk for relapse, you might consult an addiction specialist about using buprenorphine (suboxone).
Dr. James Henning
Anesthesiology 50 years experience
Complicated Answer: This varies widely from person to person depending on many factors: drug dose, duration of use, coexisting medical problems, body size and bmi, other drugs being taken, nutritional state. Please consider speaking with an addiction medical person, a psychiatrist, or your pcp.
