Opiate withdrawal symptoms usually peak within 72 hours of discontinuing the drug and may gradually improve over the course of 5-10 days. However, the duration and severity of withdrawal symptoms can vary depending on factors such as the individual’s level of dependence, the type and amount of opioid used, and the presence of any co-occurring medical or psychiatric conditions. It is important to seek medical attention and support during this time to manage withdrawal symptoms and reduce the risk of relapse.
