Opiate withdrawals can be at their worst in the first few days after stopping use, typically between 24-72 hours. Symptoms may peak at around the third or fourth day and then start to improve after that. However, the severity of the withdrawal symptoms and the duration of the withdrawal period can vary depending on the type of opiate used, the amount and duration of use, and individual factors such as overall health and genetics. It’s important to seek medical advice and support when going through opiate withdrawal to manage symptoms and minimize the risk of complications.
