  5. Will alcohol help opiate withdrawal?
Asked: 2018-04-06 13:52:25
I’m not a big drinker, never have been and that’s why it’s been recommended that I use alcohol to get over my drug withdrawal from oxy.

It’s probably not the best idea. Mixing alcohol and opiates can make you very ill or could actually kill you.

On the surface it sounds like it would help alleviate the symptoms, but really, there’s a better option, otherwise you’ll be just drinking to get so drunk you forget the symptoms every day for like a week or so, and if you’re not a big drinker you’re just going to be vomiting all the time and feel even more crap with a hangover each day!
