Methadone withdrawal occurs from 12 to 36  hours after methadone usage is stopped. This stage in methadone recovery lasts from as little as five days to as long as ten days and during this time an individual will go through a series of body changes that will seem impossible to endure.  This is a serious withdrawal process that should always be done under the supervision of medical professionals in the event of a possible life threatening situation.

Side Effects of Methadone Withdrawal

Methadone WithdrawalAlthough life-threatening situations while going through methadone withdrawal are rare, the withdrawal side effects that are common are still painful and hard to go through alone.

Several withdrawal side effects that recovering methadone addicts have been known to experience within two days of sobriety include, but are not limited to:

  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Tremors
  • Lightheadedness
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever, chills
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Anxiety, agitation
  • Aggression
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Aches and pains all over the body
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Sensitivity to pain
  • Runny nose
  • Headaches

All of the side effects mentioned can be minimized and even eliminated through natural pain remedies and sedation.  In previous generations, many methadone addicts could not finish withdrawal due to the intense effects that they experience which ultimately led to relapse.  Even though withdrawal is a scary thing to think about going through, knowing that you have dedicated help and the most promising programs for an easy success over withdrawal is always reassuring.
