What are the symptoms of oxycontin withdrawals?

My friend is acting very strange and is going through a lot, and I think it's because they have not been able to take oxycontin like they are used to.

Withdrawal symptoms include hot/cold sweating, fatigue, yawning, depression, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, loss of appetite, muscle pain, joint pain, headache and general misery. The symptoms last about a week.


Answer by  liblady (366)

Depending on the level of addiction, withdrawal symptoms can begin within six hours of the last dose and can last up to one week. Their intensity has been likened to that of heroin withdrawal symptoms. They include fatigue, muscle aches, coughing, diarrhea, insomnia, depression, watery eyes, nausea and vomiting, heart palpitations and hot and cold sweats.

It is similar to what anyone addicted to anything goes through. Only the body really is so use to having the drug in the system it does not know how to react without it. They may be irritable, disoriented, sad, happy all in one moment to the next.
