Crying none stop

Hello, I have been on Lortab on and off for about 2 years.  I was taking about 3-6 pills a day.  Today is day 5 and I have had some but not all of the detox symptoms.  The worst is the crying jags and sadness.  Is this normal?  How long until this might get better?

Hi & Welcome,

Bouts of crying, etc. are normal during the physical withdrawal stage. We buried our feelings for so long behind the drugs so when we stop using it often comes pouring out. If it continues I suggest that you see your doctor and get a good check-up.

Day 5 is great! Please hang in there, it will get better.

It is very normal for your feelings to be all over the place right now.  Let yourself cry, its okay.  We have numbed up our feelings for a long time and we arent used to this.  It gets better but like IBK said if it doesnt go see your doctor and tell him what is going on.

Congrats on 5 days!!!   Stay strong~~~~~sara
