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 more

What's the length of physical withdrawal symptoms from heroin, and which is worse-heroin, suboxone, of methadone-in terms of withdrawal duration and intensity?

What's the length of physical withdrawal symptoms from heroin,  and which is worse-heroin,  suboxone,  of methadone-in terms of withdrawal duration and intensity?

There is no 1 answer: because there is enormous variability between people and all of these opioids (and others). However, in general heroin and other short-acting drugs produce a 5-10 day acute withdrawal, usually worst at 24-72 hours and is VERY severe&then improves, but a post-acute withdrawal which is milder but can last months. Buprenorphine is milder than methadone;both peak at 72 hours but can last many weeks. ...Read more

How to taper off 10 days of 0.25mg xanax (alprazolam).Taking ½ of 0.25 for 6 days but getting withdrawal symptoms. Should i go up to ¾ of 0.25 mg first. How long?

How to stop xanax (alprazolam): The withdrawal from xanax (alprazolam) is difficult and can take weeks.
