On prescribed vicodin for 2 1/2 weeks, now cut them out cold turkey - how long will withdrawal last?

In brief: Vicodin and withdraw

You have only been on the medication for 2.
5 weeks - hence you should not expect a withdrawal. Withdrawal is commonly seen after long term -chronic use.

In brief: Not long

Usually a few days and you feel ok.
Some people feel bad for longer, but usually when they have been on the opiate for longer periods of time than 2 1/2 weeks.

In brief: 5-7 days is average

You should have very little if any withdrawal symptoms if you only took vicidin for 2.
5 weeks unless you were taking an excessive amount during that time. If however you are experiencing withdrawal symptoms, they should last about 5-7 days.
