Opiates, often known as opioids, are pain relievers. Both are types of drugs referred to as narcotics. If you quit or reduce your use of these medicines after a period of heavy use of a few weeks or longer, you will experience multiple symptoms, commonly known as withdrawal.
Opioid withdrawal symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the type of opioids used, as well as other personal and biological variables. The duration of opioid withdrawal varies according to the sort of drugs taken. Short-acting opioids, such as heroin or morphine, have shorter withdrawal periods, usually lasting no more than a week. Most prescription opioids, unless taken in an extended-release version, have a short-acting opioid timeline. Don’t wait to seek help.
