I am trying to get all the info I can on pain pills, I have a friend who has finally said she needs help. She's gonna try an in patient rehab, but any reassurance I can give her or anything I should watch for or things to expect would be appreciative. She mostly takes Lortab 7.5 takes a pill and half. I know she's had lortab 10 and Oxy's. I told her if I knew how to flush out her system so these pain killers get out of her sooner, I would. How will she act, or feel, or her actions? If anyone knows and can help I couild sure use your experiances or advice. Thx.

You can't really flush opiates out, they have to metabolize. Some people believe that when the opiates are out of your system, you are detoxed, which is right, but the addiction isn't treated just because it is gone and she will still go thru withdrawal if she is dependent/addicted to the opiates. I think you are a great friend for wanting to help, she could also check out suboxone opiate replacement, you don't have to go in-patient for the suboxone treatment. It is early and I am still getting the cobwebs out of my head, not sure if I answered what you wanted to know or not, but if she quits the opiates, and is dependent/addicted to them, she will still have withdrawal until the natural pain relieving system in the brain reboots or she goes on suboxone. A person will test positive for opiates for up to 8 days after the last dose, depending on their metabolism and how sensitive the drug test is.
