  5. What helps withdrawals from oxycodone?
Asked: 2018-08-04 06:53:10
I know my son wants to get clean but he’s been using oxycodone for a while as pain relief and his usage just got worse. I want to support him when he’s getting clean so can anyone give me advice?

To ensure a healthy and monitored withdrawal, if you can get him into a medically-assisted programme then he’ll have more chance of success and the pain, although bad, won’t be quite as bad as doing it cold turkey.

Get some clonidine as this will help will the flu-like symptoms that he’ll be going through in the first week or so. Hot baths and melatonin will also help him, but keep checking his vital signs and get a doctor in if possible.
