  5. How long opiate withdrawal?
Asked: 2018-04-25 19:26:01
My mom is overwhelmed with her opiate addiction, and I want to get her help. What can I say to her when she asks how long withdrawal symptoms will last?

Tell your mom that symptoms will appear as early as early as 6-12 hours after the last dose for short-acting opiates and 30 hours for long-acting opiates. Her symptoms will be the most painful around 72 hours after, but she could experience discomfort for more than a month. Coming from someone who has gone through it, it is well worth it to get rid of your opiate addiction despite the withdrawal pains.

Even after the vomiting and diarrhea subside, she may still experience cravings and depression for a month or more.
