How long is oxycontin withdrawal symptom duration?

How long does oxycontin withdrawal duration last? Oxycontin is one of the deadliest opiates available and for almost 1o years oxycontin has been a huge player in the US pharmaceutical market and made millions of people instant addicts.

Very few drugs have had the impact of oxycontin. You can swallow it, snort it or heat it up and inject it directly into veins, making it very similar to heroin. Many people refer to it as the rich mans heroin. It’s more expensive then heroin but many people feel the same effects.

So the question is, “How long does withdrawal from oxycontin last?” That’s a great question and there is no uniform answer. It depends on 3 things.

1) How much have you been using?
2) How long have you been using?
3) How often have you been using?

Obviously there is no “Right” answer, It all depends on each individuals body chemistry, their tolerance and their usage. But if you were to talk to someone right off the street and ask them how long it took for them to withdrawal from oxycontin most people would tell you 3 full days up to 2 weeks. Most people who have battled oxycontin withdrawals will tell you as I have, it all depends. But even after people have fully recovered from their symptoms by no means does it mean their healed, or no long an addict. All it means is that the very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms have ceased. Their’s still a lot of work that needs to happen for you to recover fully and get to the point where you no longer crave oxy.

So in short, your oxycontin withdrawal duration will be between 3 days and 2 weeks. After you’ve successfully beaten your withdrawals you can move on to the next stage, which is moving past drugs and developing new positive habits so you can lead a better more productive life.

  1. she just decided she didn’t want to do it amrnoye. Just like that. I don’t think so. I believe she’s keeping all her patients whom pay her by cash & who get injections because they bring in the BIG bucks !!So I showed up at her office at 10.am. as she asked. I then proceeded to sit there in pain for 3 hours until she decided it was my turn to see her. Then she gave me the boot !! No warning, & your not gonna tell me she didn’t know she was gonna do this last month, so she might have given me a little more time to locate a new doctor. Then she says to me U didn’t do anything wrong. I’m just not going to treat U amrnoye . How nice of her.U see the story we were all being told about her cutting patients, was that she was weeding out the people who were selling them or the true addicts who weren’t even in real pain. We all agreed with her testing us at random. I had no problem with it. I have nothing to hide. But this witch should’ve been doing this from the very 1st day she brought us into her practice !! Why was she just taking anybody & everybody in, without testing them or asking for their medical records at least ? Could it have been MONEY ???I thought it was odd myself. It was too easy getting her to take me as a patient. I didn’t complain of course, because I was a valid patient & needed the meds. Anyway .Your not supposed to cut off a patient on narcotics long term like this. You send them instantly into withdrawals !! They must know this. And it must be illegal. It is certainly unethical !!This witch, as I’m calling her never gave us an appt. We all had to go into her office at varied times in the morning, on a Saturday only. Then sit & wait for our turn, according to the sign in sheet. She always took IME treatment patients & consults in 1st, no matter when they showed up. And do you know why ? I do !! Because those are the patients who all pay her cash in hand.Since I have Blue Cross, she gets paid her usual fee, minus the co-pay that I pay her. So what did I do wrong ? Have medical coverage ?I just spoke to her billing/info girl the day before I went in. She gave me no hint that I was about to be cut. We were all told that the doctor recently chose this new office for only her medication patients & she would see us all only one day a month there. That was bad enough to know. But to do this on the very 1st appt. day for medication patients ? I mean WTF !!!If I had known I was going to have my head chopped off, I never would’ve rushed to get there, signed in & waited for 3 hours. As a minor courtesy to the medication patients who were there today, she could have come out to the outer office & announced we were no longer going to be seen by her & we would have to find new doctors asap.She sent me off with one month’s worth of meds. So if I can’t get in to another doctor within a month, I am screwed !!Thanks to the DEA, there aren’t many doctors left to treat the type of pain I have in any other way. If I had another way to do it, I would choose it. There is NO other way !! It means constant suffering, 24/7. No life. No family, no friends. Depression to beat the band. No sleep. No rest. No consoling. Just pure pain & aloneness ’til the day I die. Should I help that day come sooner ? I bet you a lot would and will !!No relief from constant chronic pain is torture for anyone. I have gone the route of every over-the-counter treatment there is and that comes out new. No relief. I have been on assorted prescription medications also. (sans narcotics) tho. It was expensive & very little relief.I have tried several antidepressants. Several anti-eleptics(?). To no avail. And yet, a new doctor will tell me to try it all again. For what ?? To waste money on candy pills ?20 years of this has been enough !! I’m sick of it !!And you idiots who tell us we’re nothing but addicts & drug seeking boobs, with no brains had better get yourself back to reality.They created narcotic medication to ease pain. So why shouldn’t the doctors use it for that ? No they’re told to give us all the expensive crap that’s out there, that does nothing for pain. All it does is addict you to it, just like narcotics do. And they curse you with bad side effects besides. They want me to take a medication that adds weight to my body. I fight to keep weight off as a Diabetic. I do not want a drug that makes me fatter !! That would take my Diabetes into cyberspace !! More medications needed. And expensive ones !! Not to mention, the risks to my life in the process. DUHHHH !!!!I am fed up with this system. It has to go !!God pray that none of you or your loved ones ever have to deal with chronic, intractable pain. Maybe then, we’ll see a little support from you ?I think the DEA or whoever, should remove the licenses of every doctor who tosses out their patients like I was today. How can they allow them to get away with doing this ? It surely does not follow their doctor’s oath.What killed me today in her office was a hoot. She’s standing there, knowing I have horrible pain in my feet that can’t be relieved any other way but by narcotics & she tells me that her feet hurt !!Well Hell’s Bells Doc I’ll trade your pain in your feet for mine any day. I said. She laughed and sent me on my way.Oh wait. She did tell me that when I do find a new doctor that she would be happy to forward my records to them. Gee I’m so grateful to her. NOTTTTT !!!!
