I am quite ignorant when it comes to heroin. Yet I would think that tis quite like withdrawing off of OxyContin? I did a cold turkey WD off oxy about two years ago.
Please google The Thomas Recipe, tis a list of otc meds you will need while in WD off any opiate, also is a diary of how Thomas felt through his journey into the bowels of hell, aka opiate withdrawal.
Please, google Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (opiates) for a detailed explaination of what is happening to your brain soup. Chemicals such as dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine and endorphins are all affected when opiate cessation begins. That is one reason why we feel like sh*t during withdrawal, mentally speaking.
The acute phase is when all the horrid physical stuff happens, such as sweating, goose flesh (hence the name 'cold turkey') anxiety, vomitting, diarrhea, tummy aches and nightmares just to name a few.
Also, it would help us greatly if you would list how long you've been off the H and how much you were doing, and how you were doing it, ie; ingesting it, shooting it, snorting, etc.
I wish you all the best new friend and don't be shy gurl, some of us have been there and back, so post away grinsixx!!!
