  5. How long till withdrawals go away?
Asked: 2018-10-06 20:54:08
I haven’t used heroin in a week and my withdrawal symptoms are so bad. How long until they go away and I feel better?

I think you are almost through the thick of it. Symptoms typically improve after one week, so hopefully very soon! Keep in mind that you may experience post-acute symptoms like depression for long after you stop using.

Your symptoms should start to subside soon, but don’t be surprised if you still feel depressed and worn-down. It depends on the person, but post-acute withdrawal symptoms can last for much longer than a week.
