Dark circles underneath eyes from opiates?!??

Ok Guys.  I know this question is silly.  But I'm just curious if anyone else has noticed a difference in lessening of dark circles under eyes after getting clean from opiates.   The last few years I have obsessed over getting rid of these dark circles.  I would have seriously had plastic surgery to get rid of them if there were such a thing.  Lol.  

Here recently I have noticed a change under my eyes.  Not sure if I'm just wishing them away.  Ha.  But Im hoping that this is just another perk of quitting these stupid pills.  

I've read bf that taking opiates esp methadone will cause dark circles.  Hmmm. Any thoughts from all my buddies.
Like I said I know this is silly question.  But it sure would be another good positive reason for me to stay the heck away from those dumb pills.  ;)

Love Chris

I've always been shy to ask questions.  But I'm getting over that.    I sure do hope this was the problem!   Screw that stuff if its going to age me quicker.  Looking for the  fountain of youth while still on opiates was stupid huh?!  Lol. Just quit taking the darn things and you might start looking better. Lol.   ;)

I too noticed this change, my eyes were DARK when on drugs, once clean they cleared so much, I looked about 5 years old, now I'm 5 month in I look about 3, I got asked for ID when I went to buy a chocolate bar yesterday. I told them this is because of opiates and he phoned the police, I'm now in a children's home hoping my parents will come rescue me, at 37 this is really embarrassing, haha! Stay away from the drugs and you too can relive your youth, lol.

There's never a silly question Chris, but when you ask it to me. There's always a stupid answer, ha! I bet your looking amazing my friend, keep it up and way to go, ;)

Oh, that was priceless!!

I looked like a hag when I was taking pills! Well, OK I still do, somewhat. Lol. Anyway, my skin has gotten much better. More quality sleep now, lots of hydration, and a good moisturizer really helps. Oh yeah and vitamins. I take the prenatal ones now.
