The first symptoms can feel like a mild case of the flu and may also include anxiety, insomnia, agitation and drug cravings. During the peak, a person may feel sick, have chills and experience cravings. After a week, most people’s symptoms start going away. Other people can experience issues for longer. Any ongoing symptoms are likely psychological. For example, for months after withdrawal ends, a person can feel depression or anxiety.
Medical detox can also be used for treatment. People should avoid trying to detox at home without proper help. While oxymorphone withdrawal isn’t likely to be deadly, a person can feel major discomfort.
Naltrexone is one such option. It doesn’t replace the effects of opioids, but it does deter people from using more opioids. This drug can also limit cravings. Speak to a doctor to learn about other drugs that can help people stop using an opioid.
