How Long Does Vicodin Withdrawal Take
See below: Methadone withdrawal may not peak for 7-10 days and may last for several weeks. In general, at pharmacologically equivalent dosages, studies have shown Methadone to produce a withdrawal syndrome that is less intense but longer lasting than that of heroin. However most people who have experienced both tend to rate the Methadone withdrawal as more severe. ...Read more
Long: Valium has a long half-life in your system (diazepam is 30—60 hours), and metabolic breakdown products of that last longer -- some up to 100 hours. This means that withdrawal symptoms can start within 5 days to 14 days, but can be delayed for up to 3 weeks (because of the breakdown products). You may need some medical help during this, because withdrawal from benzodiazepines can cause seizures. ...Read more

Average 7 to 10 days: Long-term use of tramadol may be associated with physical dependence and a withdrawal syndrome, consisting of typical opiate-like withdrawal symptoms as well as atypical withdrawal symptoms including seizures.

Xanax (alprazolam): Hello. IF your liver metabolizes it normally, then xanax (alprazolam) should start working within 60-120 minutes. You are very young.

I'm going through Zoloft (sertraline) withdrawal and I take Vicodin. Will taking Vicodin stop or slow the recovery process from coming off of Zoloft (sertraline)?

Not sure if you are working with your doc on tapering schedule or not, if you are may need to slow it down. Discuss with doctor, there may be other options.

How can I make Vicodin withdrawal easier? I want to quit this drug so bad, but I always get a horrible case of the chills. I'm NOT going to ask my doc
Addictionologist: The symptoms of Vicodin (opioid) withdrawal are pretty severe physically and emotionally. However, they are not life threatening. It is best to do it with a trained addictionologist. It has to be tapered down and certain non-addictive medications need to be used to minimize some of the withdrawal like diarrhea, craps, pain and a sleep disturbance. Good Luck! Most people quit drugs so can you! ...Read more
I am coming off vicodin after being on it for 10 yrs for severe back pain & ms. On the thomas recipe am down to 1 pill. Am scared of withdrawals at 0?
Unlikely: If you are down to one vicodin per day it would be highly unlikely in my experience for you to have withdrawal symptoms by going from one to none. Your anxiety about it will probably cause more symptoms that stopping the med. This would be best supervised by your doctor however if you are scared about stopping. ...Read more
Is it normal to experience crazy legs, very emotional and weird in stomach and back going through day 12 of withdrawals for vicodin?
Yes: Depending on the length of time of use and the amount used of vicodin withdrawals can persist for weeks and even months, they tend to get less severe with time and may wax and wane. That is one reason relapse is very high with opiates because the discomfort lasts. Hang in there and seek medical help, medications can help to get through , but other support is also often neccessary to avoid relapse. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
