All About Oxy/Oxycontin Detox and Withdrawal Symptoms

Oxycontin is an Opioid pain medication that is often referred to as Oxy on the street. It contains Oxycodone, which is a potent pain killer. Doctors will often prescribe Oxycontin to patients who are complaining of severe pain in various parts of their body for short-term use. Unfortunately, even short-term use of Oxy can result in addiction because of how powerful it is. It’s not uncommon for people to form an Oxycontin addiction without realizing it’s happening. Once the addiction is formed, they’ll usually try to stop it, but then they go through Oxycontin withdrawal.

Maybe you feel stuck in your Oxy addiction, and you’d love to try to get off from this drug, but you don’t know how to do it. You’re certainly not alone in feeling that way. It’s much safer for you to avoid stopping your Oxycontin altogether on your own, and instead, reach out for help from an Oxycontin detox.

Oxy Withdrawal Symptoms and the Need for Oxycontin Detox Centers

Many people continue to take Oxycontin for a long time because they don’t realize how addictive it can be. Unfortunately, patients are not always well-informed about the addictive natures of their medications, and many times, when doctors find something that works, they’ll stick with it.

It doesn’t take very long to form an addiction to Oxycontin, and once you go too long without a dose, or you try to stop taking it on your own, you’re probably going to experience Oxycontin withdrawal. Some of the most common Oxy withdrawal symptoms include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Digestion issues, such as diarrhea
  • Panic attacks or anxiety
  • A frequent runny nose
  • Chronic bouts of fatigue
  • Shakiness in your hands
  • Depression symptoms
  • Muscle aches in your body

Oxycontin withdrawal symptoms that can also occur include seizures and heart problems, including an increased risk of heart attack. Also, there have been instances when depression symptoms have become so severe that they have led to suicidal thoughts or gestures.

Understanding the Oxycontin Withdrawal Timeline

There are a lot of factors that influence when you may start to see the onset of Oxy withdrawal. It depends on your own metabolism, how much Oxycontin you have been taking, and how often you have been taking it. One of the most common questions people ask is, How long does Oxycontin withdrawal last? The answer is that it is different for everyone.

Even so, in there is a general Oxy withdrawal timeline that may help you if you’re looking for a rough idea about what you can expect.

  • During the first few hours after your last dose, you may start to experience the symptoms of Oxy withdrawal, but they may be relatively mild at this point.
  • During days one and two, you may start to experience a worsening of your original symptoms, plus the addition of some other ones. Muscle aches and joint pain are common, and this is the time when most people relapse.
  • During days three through five, muscle aches will probably continue, and you may feel nauseous and vomit. You should experience the peak of Oxycontin withdrawal by the end of the fifth day.
  • During days six and seven, your physical symptoms are probably slowing down, but the psychological symptoms of Oxy withdrawal continue to be very strong. Anxiety and depression may increase.
  • During day eight and beyond, many people experience remorse about the decisions they made when they were high. It’s important to watch depression symptoms and see that they don’t become worse.

Oxycontin withdrawal can continue for quite some time after the first week, and many people experience symptoms that come and go for months or even longer.

Is Medical Detox the Best Form of Rapid Drug Detox?

Experts agree that rapid drug detox is a method that should be widely used when helping people stop their use of Oxy. There are a few different ways that are popular, and they include medical detox and natural detox.

During medical detox, patients are given drug detox pills to help with their symptoms. This detox medicine has been shown to be very effective, but there are some dangerous side effects to it as well. It’s not uncommon for some types of detox medicines to cause withdrawal after they’re continued, which can start the cycle of addiction all over again.

Natural detox is an option you may want to consider when you’re ready to quit using Oxycontin. During natural detox, you’ll work with staff members to make changes to your diet and exercise regimen to promote the healing of your body and the removal of toxins. This method has had great success for so many people, and it’s demonstrated a much higher success rate than medical detox.




Is At Home Detox Safe and Effective?

At home detox or drug detox kits are methods that are commonly used by those who don’t want to attempt a professional Oxycontin detox. Unfortunately, they do not have rave reviews. Because of the lack of professional support, many people end up relapsing, and when this occurs, there is a high chance of overdosing. Also, using at home detox or drug detox kits can be dangerous because of the risk of medical complications.
