Oxycodone Withdrawal Symptoms Duration
I am having trouble quitting oxycodone/suboxone. How long are these withdrawal symptoms supposed to last?
Quiting Opiates: Suboxone is used to help with addiction to opiates like oxycodone. Maybe you need to get yourself on a maintenance dose of suboxone which you can then slowly taper off over time. In my experience, patients often will need to stay on suboxone for about half the amount of time they abused opiates. So, if a person took oxycodone for 4-5 years, they may need the suboxone for a couple of years. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
