FOR THE PROCESS OF THIS ANSWER WE ARE GOING TO CONSIDER THIS A LONGTERM HEAVY USER. Morphine withdrawals or DT's (delirium tremens is the medical name ) starts out as severe body-aches, head aches, just pain in general and will progress to cold sweats nausea and sever diarrhea. These symptoms can and for most people do last several days. If you are a heavy user either do not quit or wean yourself gradually by cutting the dosage down over days or weeks if you have the luxury. Never ever go cold turkey if You wish to avoid the DTs. This is speaking from 20 years of elicit opiate use.

Yes but only when on very high levels of opiates. I stopped my drug vacation (such a pleasant term for being in the thrawls of addiction lol) at a point where I was putting up… the nose around 240mg (3 oxy 80's) per day. I had been taking that much for about a week. (The week prior I had taken 160mgs a day by insufflation(nose) for one week before my habit increased by 80mg. And prior to that I had taken about a half of an 80 to maybe a whole one by mouth for a year and a half...the moral of this tangent was that insufflation makes it way harder an increases your tolerance infinately very quickly) Anyway after taking that much for a week I took 2mg of suboxone after 24 hours in withdrawal. I felt quite a bit better but still pretty crummy for maybe four days...two or three of which were very uncomfortable and I was constantly tossing and turning with absolutely no appetite. I would have increased my dosage of the suboxone but I bought them off a friend and not from a doctor and could not afford to buy more so I did my best to space em all out. I would have guessed that 8mg at this time however would have helped me completely. My former "giver of drugs" (sorry this website wont let me use any other terminology for that person calling it obscinity) and a friend from rehab unfortunately had a tolerance and habit for opiates that sadly far exceeded mine. The "giver of drugs" was up to sometimes 12 Oxycontin 80's per day up the nose mostly, and the friend from outpatient was a bundle a day heroin addict. They had used subs before and didnt watch their intake because they knew they always had that safety net and wouldn't have to deal with withdrawals. Boy were they wrong. At the point they were at they both were beyond what the suboxone could do. Both of them were taking 24mg of suboxone in one hour and still couldn't stop their withdrawals. So for anyone out there that believes that the subs will always be your safety net no matter how bad your addiction gets, be careful because I have seen twice now that this in not the case.
It can vary from person to person, but on average one would expect the worst to be over in 7 to 10 days with certain less severe effects like lack of sleep to go on much longe…r. It is the first 3 to 4 days that are the worst with a whole host of symptoms which make the withdrawal almost unbearable. A GP or drug dependancy professional should be consulted and a realistic plan of reduction tailored to the individuals needs put in place to avoid harsh withdrawal symptoms and the risk of failure.
Morphine Sulfate withdrawals are the same as most any other opiate/opioid (with some exceptions and slight variations). Opiates/opiates come from the Poppy plant, or are synt…hetic derivatives, and Morphine is found in raw opium directly. Morphine withdrawal symptoms (or Opiate withdrawal symptoms in general) are as follows: Sweats, Chills, Muscle Aches, Diarrhea, Vomiting/Nausea, High Blood Pressure, Fatigue, Restless Leg Syndrome (leg aches), Insomnia, Severe Depression, Heightened Sensitivity to Pain, Dysphoria, Muscle Spasms, Allergy Symptoms (yawning, watery eyes, sneezing). They generally last for 5-10 days, with some symptoms lasting longer (insomnia, depression, fatigue). Morphine withdrawals are exactly like Heroin withdrawals, because they are almost exactly the same drug. In fact, the proper chemical name for Heroin is Diamorphine. When heroin is ingested and reaches the brain, it is turned into morphine. Morphine (and Heroin) are in a class of drugs called opiates, which are used medically to relieve pain. Morphine Withdrawals are very painful, but are NOT deadly unlike Benzodiazapine (Valium, Xanax, Klonapin, etc.) and Alcohol withdrawal. There is plenty of information online about Opiate withdrawals, so any further information is just a click away. If you or someone you know is going through Opiate withdrawals, good luck and stay strong. If you aren't, you never, ever want to go through it. It was one of the most painful experiences of my life. Benzo and alcohol withdraw is not DEADLY. Also heroin is not used medically to relieve pain. The withdrawal symptoms are right though. As having gone through it personally a few times the worst and most prominent are probably Restless Leg Syndrome, insomnia, diarrhea, sweating, and pretty severe back and leg pain. It'll dumb down every day for about 4 days, and then you'll be fine.
you must ONLY use a doctor to advise you to withdraw from this drug as it can have major consequences to your health, do not do this without a physician.
do not take dilaudid for morphine withdrawals.this is ascenine..U will simply start your detox over being how dilaudid is 4 to 5 times stronger than morphine accroding to mgs.… It will stop your withdrawals and when that pill has worn off you will be in worse shape than you started. Dilaudid is just as or more addictive than morphine.Hope this helps.hang in there I'm on day 4 of morphine withdrawals myself...just hang tight i know it sux but you can do it.. ---- Also a major factor that makes Dilaudid unsuitable for treating morphine withdrawal is, like morphine, it has a short half-life and relatively short duration of action. The longer acting opioids (such as methadone) are used for tapering and maintenance because they require less frequent dosing and stay in the body longer, thus creating less harsh withdrawal symptoms.
You will not get anything you want out of it if you take them too soon and why do you want to go back on drugs after the suboxone rehab????? What happens is you ge…t addicted again and have to go back on subs.
Yes. Typical symptoms are headache, irritability, depression and lack of energy, but they vary some with individuals.
It depends on how much u do..but sometimes it will last 4 days and other times it can last up to 2 weeks

You feel feverish (hot and cold with sweating), you may have diarrhea, you be in a very piss-poor mood and will and you will basically want to die for about three days. Have… fun

Ive been on adderall for 2 months str8 30mg everyday ive havent experienced withdraws so idk i might just be the 1 of the lucky 1s
There is no real way you can help them, just support them make sure they don't get back on the drug if it's bad enough slowly get them off the drug yourself by giving them sma…ll doses. Withdrawal is a hard place to be you want to go back to the drug more than anything to make the pain go away.
You only try something like this with a doctor handy! You will need medication to help you overcome the powerful withdrawal symptoms caused by using illegal drugs. Your doctor… or a drug treatment clinic will be only too happy to help you get your life back on the right track and get rid of this awful habit!
Morphine, or any other opiate, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, opium, methadone - in short, any opioid agonist - are all interchangeable in terms of making you well. So certai…nly morphine will get you off of heroin, but it doesn't change the fact that you are addicted to opiates. You can substitute any virtually opiate for any other. But, if you can change from black-market opiates to legally prescribed opiates - basically what a methadone clinic does - you will solve most of the problems associated with addiction. You'll still have to deal with inflated prices, and abuses of power by those controlling access, but the cost is more manageable, and doses will be consistent.
Do not take the dose one day and stop the next, take it again another day and stop again - That will not work unless you are one of those lucky persons that have a great toler…ance to side effects. The trick is getting your dose of Paroxetine down till 1/16 and keep it there for some time before quitting. Relax while you are doing it while assessing if you feel alright or not. Keep yourself active and busy and enjoy some good social parties or hang around with friends. It's vital to stay relaxed and motivated.
A person going through withdrawals may need medical help in order to get through them safely, depending on what kind of withdrawal it is and how serious their symptoms are…. If a person is going through nicotine withdrawal, it is probably just better to stay out of their way.
