Dealing with the symptoms of withdrawal from
Opiate
2
  • Once an individual is addicted to drugs or
    alcohol, it becomes very difficult to get rid of
    it, and the same is true when it comes to
    addiction to opiate. Regardless of the fact that
    the person was involved in abusing drugs or was
    simply taking prescribed medication from a
    doctor, withdrawal from opiate can lead to
    certain adverse effects. In such a situation,
    knowing the various medical and at-home remedies
    to deal with the symptoms generating due to
    withdrawing from opiate, can be of great benefit.
    These remedies directly target the symptoms which
    could make it difficult for the individual to end
    the cycle of addiction.

Medication
  • The first choice should be opting for
    medications like buprenorphine that can help in
    alleviating the withdrawal symptoms of opiate to
    some extent. Just like opiates, these medications
    can also produce effects of euphoria, and
    therefore help in easing the task of ending
    addiction to opiate. However, these medications
    should only be taken under the supervision of a
    doctor.

Medication
After identifying the addiction level, the doctor
will prescribe the dosage. The dosage can range
in between 8 to 15 mg per day. When the symptoms
will start alleviating the dosage will be
altered. Time required for recovery from
addiction will depend upon the severity of
addiction. As per Narconon Fresh Start, a major
drawback to this kind of treatment is that it
creates the chances of the person getting
addicted to the prescribed medications.

Natural Remedies
  • There are many who prefer natural remedies over
    prescribed medications for dealing with the
    symptoms of opiate withdrawal. This can include
    the use of many natural products, like
    passionflower, valerian root and ginger.

Many studies have proved that passionflower
extract is very effective for dealing with such
symptoms. Likewise, ginger root can be used to
treat vomiting and nausea, while valerian root
can be used to treat sleeping disorders that are
triggered by opiate withdrawal symptoms.

Natural Remedies
  • If the addiction to opiate is on the extreme
    side, then the addict should seek help from
    rehabilitation programs like Narconon Fresh
    Start. Seeking for help from these institutions
    should not be seen as a sign of weakness, but as
    prudence.

Sometimes the symptoms of withdrawal from opiate
can be too severe to be handled at home. In many
cases, due to lack of help the addict might even
get back to addiction. If at any point the
addict feels that he or she is unable to cope up
with the pressure, then they should ask for help
immediately.
