Withdrawal Symptons of Oxycontin

If you're thinking of withdrawing from oxycontin use, I applaud you. You definitely came to the right place. This is the best decision you've ever made. For that, I have a quick list for you. Good luck!

  • Hot and cold sweats: This can be treated by cold baths and the use of blankets.
  • Heart palpitations: These can be treated by breathing and relaxation techniques.
  • Constant pain in the person’s joints and muscles: Taking an over-the-counter pain medication such as Aspirin can treat this.
  • Nausea and vomiting: Taking an over-the-counter medication such as Coke syrup can treat this.
  • Diarrhea: Eating blueberries can treat this.
  • Watery eyes and excessive yawning: There is nothing that can be done for these symptoms.
  • Dry mouth, sore throat, gums or tongue: Doctors suggest sipping ice water or fruit juice and chewing gum.
  • Headaches: Warm baths or showers and relaxation or meditation techniques can treat these.
  • Irregularity: Adding more raw fruits, raw vegetables and whole grain cereals, as well as drinking between six and eight glasses of water each day can treat this.
  • Trouble sleeping: Relaxation and meditation techniques can be used to treat this. It also helps if the patient does not drink any beverages that have caffeine in them after 6PM at night.
  • Fatigue (feeling tired all of the time): Taking naps can treat this. During Oxycontin withdrawal your body needs a chance to heal so you cannot push yourself too much or expect too much of yourself.
  • Hunger: Finding something that is low calorie and nutritional to eat can help this.
  • Tenseness, irritability and depression: Hot baths and exercise can treat these symptoms.
  • Coughing: Sipping on warm herbal tea or sucking on cough drops or hard candy can treat this.
