Hi felina, It sort of depends on how long you took the med for and how much and how you took it; ie, did you swallow the pills, inject them or snort them?
Dehydration and high blood pressure are possible side effects from withdrawing from any opiate.
Best o' luck to you,
Hi felina, Yes, depending on the circumstances, it can cause quite a few problems depending on dose and method used. If you have been taking them for over a couple of years, weening off slowly is recommended, as it can cause seizures, and severe sickness (like a really, really bad flu). You can also have too low a blood pressure leading to passing out, or respiratory problems. Like I said though, it depends on how long you have been taking them, swallowing, injecting, or method of withdrawel chosen. There is one method that is quite successful, but comes with problems of it's own. This is Suboxone (something like methadone), and if used, you will have no withdrawel at all, but I'm told that the withdrawel from that can be pretty bad, also depending on the person. Sudden and complete stopping of any opiate or narcotic, can cause all of these things, but I can't say for sure what your reaction will be. We are all different, and one person would withdraw easily and another not easy at all. I am not a doctor, and I would recommend that you talk to a doctor before starting this. It is highly recommended that you don't go through any withdrawel without someone there to help you if you need it. And you will need the support system that person could give you, or you can come back here. There are a great many wonderful people on this site and we all are always willing to help. We can be a good computer support system. You will find that all of us are going through, or have gone through what you are talking about, so we do understand through experience. We help each other all the time. I come here and read what others have written, and it gives me strength and motivation. I answer only those that "talk to me" when I read them. There is always someone here reading or answering posts, so if you need help in the middle of the night, chances are good that you will have someone talking to you in a short amount of time, or by morning at the latest. If you want, make any of us your friend and then we will do the same for you and then we get notice when one of our friends has asked a question or posted an answer. If you are interested in doing that, just let me know, and I will show you how. I hope this was a help to you and I wish you much luck and success. It is a difficult process but most certainly can be achieved. God bless you and keep you... I am beanmarie
