The initial week to ten days after someone uses their last dose of methadone hydrochloride is when they’re likely to experience the most severe withdrawal symptoms. Methadone hydrochloride withdrawal symptoms can physically feel like the flu. Psychological symptoms can include anxiety and depression. Within a few weeks, most symptoms will subside, but some people may experience ongoing symptoms of withdrawal for months. One symptom that may last for more than three weeks is depression, and some people may also have problems experiencing pleasure or feelings of motivation. When someone experiences longer-term withdrawal symptoms, it’s called Post-Acute Withdrawal Syndrome or PAWS. PAWS isn’t extremely common in people going through methadone withdrawal, but there is a slight possibility it can occur. PAWS can include not only depression but suicide ideation, anxiety and repeated panic attacks.
