I am taking tramadol to reduce heroin withdrawal. I have a drug test monday, I don't want to be punished for trying to get off. Will it show up in t?
Not usually: Tramadol is not chemically related to opiates derived from the opium poppy, which is generally what screening drug tests look for. It is not particularly effective, in my experience, for withdrawal, and in some cases can actually make it worse. It depends on how extensive the testing they do will be. If they subject it to confirmatory testing like gc/ms, it will show up. ...Read more

It does not make sense and the problem of opioid addiction will remain, i.e. The name of the addiction will not change - opioid addiction. Hope this helps. If you are dealing with this, please seek professional help asap. ...Read more

Being a IV heroin addict I used methamphetimine to cure withdrawal symptoms. It worked but I don't get high off the meth. Able to eat and sleep. Why?
No clue: But I wish you were more concerned with dealing with your addictions than blocking withdrawal symptoms. I have treated MANY people who used both heroin and methamphetamine, and none of them said that amphetamine did anything beneficial for their withdrawal, so it may be just your particular biology. Most use speed to stay awake for the heroin high, or use heroin to take the edge off the speed. ...Read more
What's the best home remedies for heroin withdrawals? I last used today&I've been using everyday. How long until I'm clean?
You must be joking: There ARE no "home remedies" & I'm sure you already know that. Why did you start using in the first place? Why didn't you just try a "home remedy" INSTEAD of heroin? There's no "home remedy" substitute for heroin & there's no "home remedy" for heroin withdrawal. Maybe withdrawal would discourage you from using again. If not, seek professional help. Go to a nearby ER. ...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?
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
My friend stopped using heroin today to start a new job in 7 days. Will he be done having withdrawal symptoms by then?
A lot of it will be: The worst symptoms of heroin withdrawal are pretty much better by 4-5 days, but some symptoms - sleeplessness, anxiety, leg kicking and cramps - may persist for weeks. Of greater concern is craving. My experience with people who have serious heroin habits is that very, very few (<5%) can get off and stay off without help. I strongly encourage 12-step or other support meetings & professional help. ...Read more

I'm detoxing myself from very large amount of heroin. Any suggestions on how to make the withdrawals not so hellish?? And suboxone isn't a option pls
A number of options: But none of them work all that well. The best is clonidine, a blood pressure medication. It comes in pills and patches & when dosed properly can reduce many withdrawal symptoms. A doc with some expertise in addiction treatment should prescribe it, and it has to be adjusted to what works for you without causing low blood pressure. Imodium for diarrhea, motrin/tylenol for pain, benadryl (diphenhydramine) for sleep ...Read more
Too subjective to do:
People's reports of 'withdrawal' vs. Objective measurements (vital signs) - what a mess.
Heroin withdrawal is very painful/achy and people hate it- but it doesn't 'kill'. Yet a sudden withdrawal from alcohol could cause memory loss and seizures - far worse in my opinion. Depending on what you call extreme, I would say alcohol! ...Read more
If you use heroin heavily, go to detox for five days, use one day and then take naltrexone pills how long will the withdrawal symptoms last?
Recovery: Using heroine heavily means addiction so you need a daily recovery program. The problem is, you have to be so completely fed up that you are willing to do anything to recover. If you are not you won't agree to follow a daily 12 step practice. They work 100% of the time, but only if you work them every single day, one day at a time. You might want a sponsor. How long withdrawal symptoms last, days? ...Read more

Will I go into precipitated withdrawal after waiting 26hours after last shot of heroin? Have only used heroin for five days. On subs before that and wan
Unlikely: The general recommendation before resuming buprenorphine after a relapse on short acting drugs like heroin is waiting 24 hours, or until you begin to feel withdrawal. If you are not feeling withdrawal, it might be prudent to either wait until you are, or to use a lower dose of the drug (1/2 of the lowest dose form, like 1mg of suboxone/subutex). ...Read more
