I stopped taking buprenorphine a week ago 1mg/day been taking it for 6 yrs. I have insomnia, pain & nausea. How long will my withdrawals last?

I stopped taking buprenorphine a week ago 1mg/day been taking it for 6 yrs. I have insomnia, pain & nausea. How long will my withdrawals last?

After that, symptoms are less severe, more tolerable and when they eventually stop altogether it can take 2-4 weeks for the withdrawals to stop completely, but they are milder and more tolerable. A lot depends upon how long you've been on it of course. ...Read more

A thorough assessment, second opinion and other innovative approved treatments are certainly an alternative. Consult your dr. Good luck. ...Read more
