Compassionate and Effective Codeine Withdrawal in Austin, Texas

Codeine is commonly prescribed medicine used to treat mild to moderate pain. It’s often mixed with acetaminophen and used in cough syrups as well.

Symptoms of Codeine Withdrawal

Codeine withdrawal symptoms mirror those of other opioids and can range from moderate to severe. Each patient’s opioid withdrawal period will differ based upon the scope and severity of their addiction; however, some of the more common symptoms include fluctuations in mood, trouble sleeping, flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, diarrhea, loss of appetite, joint and muscle pain and more. Withdrawal symptoms get more severe the longer codeine abuse continues untreated, and should be managed with the help of an experienced and qualified medical professional. More severe symptoms can include extreme pain, depression and anxiety. If you or a loved one are experiencing these or any other symptoms related to codeine abuse, seek help immediately.

The Timeline of Codeine Withdrawal

The length of the Codeine withdrawal process varies based upon the user’s level of dependency. Symptoms can manifest in as little as six to eight hours. Physical withdrawal symptoms are strongest in the first few days after you stop taking codeine. Most symptoms are gone within two weeks. However, behavioral symptoms and cravings for the drug can last months. In rare cases, they can even last years. Codeine withdrawal is divided into three stages: early, acute and protracted. The worst of the symptoms occur during the acute stage. Protracted codeine withdrawal can last well after the clinical treatment period and may be able to be treated using certain types of prescription medications.
