  5. How long till heroin withdrawal starts?
Asked: 2017-11-21 09:49:33
I am determined to quit using heroin. How long after my last dose do I have to wait before withdrawal sets in?

You won’t have to wait very long. Heroin is such a powerful and addictive substance that your body will show signs of withdrawal in as early as 6 hours. Your symptoms will be at their worst within three days.

Heroin is a short-acting opiate, so it doesn’t take very long before the body begins to crave it. You can expect to feel signs of withdrawal within 6 to 12 hours.
