  5. How long does it take to withdraw from oxycodone?
Asked: 2018-10-07 13:14:55
I’m getting ready to start a new job, and I need to stop using oxy to pass the drug screen. Honestly, I’m tired of being an addict. I want to be done with drugs altogether, and I’m supposed to test in about a week and a half. Will I be out of withdrawals by then?

My sister was on oxycodone for her back for like two years. When the doctors figured out that she was making it up, they pulled her off of it pretty quick. Her detox took about two weeks, but I think thats because of how long she was on the drug. In reality, I dont think it should last more than seven days.

I took that step for like a month when my friends stole it from their mom. It was a pretty good high, but it gets really old really fast. After only two weeks I still went through a weeks worth of withdrawals when I decided to quit. Now, Im sober and considering college.

By “oxy” I’m assuming that you’re talking about oxycodone. That’s a really strong painkiller, and the withdrawals can be a lot like what you go through on heroin. The sick feeling and the tremors will come on pretty slowly a few hours after your last dose, but they’ll get a lot worse by the third day. If you can hang on that long, things should start to get better. You should be through, or nearly through, your withdrawals by the time you go in to start your job.

Ten days should give you enough time to detox. You’ll probably still want the drugs, but you’ll be through the worst of the physical withdrawals. It’s always better if you go to rehab when you’re trying to stop using drugs, but I understand that it’s more difficult when you’re trying to start a new job. Just make sure that you listen to your body and if you start to feel too sick you get a hold of a doctor.
