Heroin & Opioid Withdrawals

How does withdrawal work?

If you use opiates for an extended period of time, your body becomes desensitized to the drug. This means you’ll need more of it to feel its effects.

HELP YOURSELF OUT AND TAKE THESE SUPPLEMENT AIDS!    *Note:  You are not fully ‘out of the woods’, even with these supplement aids, but they definitely help to reduce the nasty symptoms.  Tried and True.  We would NOT be recommending them if they did not work.




Long-Term Usage

Extended use of opiates changes the structure of nerve cells in your brain. These cells will begin to need the drug just to function properly. When you stop using opiates abruptly, your body will react, leading to symptoms of withdrawal.

Opiate withdrawal occurs in two phases.  The first phase includes a number of symptoms, such as:

  • muscle aches
  • restlessness
  • anxiety
  • agitation
  • tearing eyes
  • runny nose
  • excessive sweating
  • sleeplessness
  • excessive yawning
  • low energy

The second phase is marked by:

  • diarrhea
  • abdominal cramps
  • nausea and vomiting
  • dilated pupils
  • rapid heartbeat
  • goose bumps

These initial phases, which can last anywhere from a week to a month, can be followed by long-term withdrawal symptoms. Long-term symptoms are often less physical in nature and may involve emotional or behavioral issues.
