Long half-life

Xanax
The elimination half-life of Xanax is about 11.2-26.9 hours. It takes almost 6 elimination half-life's for a drug to be cleared from the human body. Well... it could take a maximum of 161.4 hours or 6.7 days (6 x 26.9 hours) for Xanax to be completely eliminated. Rec. see your prescribing physician to express your concerns.

Dr. Ed Friedlander answered:

For what length of time does it take to recover from opiate addiction?

Lifetime

Addiction
If the addiction was acquired during a painful illness, recovery can be very fast aided by humane protocols such as used by the military in burn units. If it was a recreational use or from ill-advised prescribing, the person will never be fully normal or able to approach opiates again without having terrible things happen in the mind.

I've been off of opiates a year and i still feel weak all the time. Normal?

No

Opiates
Feeling weak could be from any number of medical conditions from poor general health, conditioning to from being anemic as well and definitely not from Opiates. Thus I would seek medical evaluation from a health professional with treatment/advice as necessary if need be. Be well .

For what length of time before opiate withdrawal anxiety/agitation/lack of motivation wears off?

Every person is

Agitation
different. Some of the symptoms you are describing may have been in existence before you began abusing opiates. You need to be working with a therapist who specializes in addictions to help you learn how to handle anxiety. aggitation and lack of motivation. Also self help support groups like AA and NA will help you stay clean and sober.

I tested positive for opiates but i haven't done any. I take oxycontin time release so is that why?

Yes

Opiates
Oxycontin is an opiate. I am sorry there was a misunderstanding. If your oxycontin is prescribed by a physician and it is proper, let whoever tested you know that you have a valid reason

How many milligrams of Suboxone should I take if I am a light user of opiates for a relatively short period of time?

See below

Heroin_addiction
These medications should only be taken under the supervision of a physician. You should not attempt to self-medicate. Please talk to your doctor. Additionally, light use of narcotics for a relatively short time period does not need to be treated with suboxone or any other medication.

Dr. Alvin B. Lin answered:

What is the best opiate for long term use. Life time I am in my mid 30s and have tried all other options. NSAIDs, PT, multiple surgeries.?

There is no one best

Opiates
Go see a pain specialist, a physician trained specifically in treating pain with different modalities. S/he can offer you different options, some more invasive than others. I can't begin to imagine your pain but you're pretty young to start thinking about a lifetime of narcotics and all their attendant complications & side effects. So get another opinion.

Dr. Jason Burke answered:

Will you go through withdrawals if you took opiates for 3 months approximately 80 pills in that time frame? How hard is it to stop taking opiates?

Probably not

That is not that large a dose of opiates. It also depends on which opiates. If it was just percocet, probably not a problem. But, if it was 60 mg of oxycontin, that could be an issue. The type of narcotic and dose is very important. I would talk to your doctor about exactly which one you were taking and its properties.
