I've been doing opiates, from pills to heroin, on and off for about 7 or 8 months. About 2 months ago i started doing heroin regularly for several weeks. Now I haven't done any for a month or so and I still feel symptoms of withdrawl pretty often. I still get chills, sweats, stomach cramps and regular diahrea. When will this subside? I've heard it can last months.
How long does opiate withdrawl last?
From what I've read, this seems to be unusually long for acute symptoms such as you have, from heroin. Heavy methadone users can take two months because it stays in the system longer. From heroin some psychological symptoms like anxiety and insomnia can last for months, but it's not usual for diarrhoea or sweats to last so long.
