It all depends on how long you were on it, dosage etc. It's a strong one so keep fighting! You are getting better each day.
Are you exercising, sweating and eating right? If we don't exercise and sweat it out it last much longer. If we simply sit on the sofa and wait to get better it can really drag out. Not to be harsh.
I sped up my recovery dramatically by exercising daily, breaking a really good sweat, eating right and then sitting in a sauna as often as possible. I confirmed it shortened the WD's by almost 8 days! That was huge compared to the first time I tried and did nothing to help it along. Good luck and stay strong. You are at 30 days so keep on truckin!
OMG, you are like the carbon coby of me! I am 31 days in and just posted about the same question. WHY is it taking so long to go away! I have the same symptoms. depressed, NO energy to do ANYTHING, lack of WANT to do anything, nothing is enjoyable, restless legs like a beast at night, stomach ISSUES which just started, empty belly feeling, All of these have gotten better, but are still sooooo THERE!!! I feel so abnormal still. I'm a mess and my daughter is suffering because of it. Makes u wonder how bad being on it really was if I was doing soooo much better. Then again, we're talking big picture. So, we should be soooo proud of ourselves for enduring this shyt. Even if no one else is. This is a battle and we are winning and stuff :)
Please find solace that someone else knows and is currently going through the same thing as you. You are never alone.
I agree with OP8fool..The more you push your self the better. I always say on here that Time is the Greatest Healer of this all. With time comes Patience. Subs, Methadone and Trams are the worst synthetic drugs to come off of becasue they do not like to let go. What you are experiencing is normal right now. Your Brain takes time to balance back and the Body takes time to rid these poison. The Mental wave can come and go for a Year or more.
Make sure you are drinking lots of water and get some Electrolyte powders and Protein powders too! You must replenish your body with all the vit/min that we loose during are Substance use.
Take the Magnesium & Potassium for the RLS and add the Ds, Cals at night for sleep..There are many vit/min to help with energy but the best is walking or some kind of exercise to get the Brain Chems back up. You are doing a great Job..Just look at the positive and try to except and trust the process..It does get better.
Since subs have such a long half life...it is generally stated that it takes 21 days to completely leave your system. So at 30 days off subs, the bupe would have just totally been eliminated 9 days ago.
Of course, how much you were on, how long you saturated your receptors with the subs has to be taken into account as well.
We have pain/opiate receptors in our gut, up and down our spine, as well as in our brains. So having gut issues at 30 days in now that those receptors don't have subs sticking to them might explain the continued gut issues. Imodium can help those issues and anything from hot towels out of the dryer on your legs, to heating pads, to icy hot gel, to wrapping your legs to the homeopathic supplement called Hyland's Restful Legs may help with the RLS.
Time is the gag a maggot word here......I was only on subs 28 days and jumped off at a VERY HIGH dose. You said: "just kinda getting worried that I will never feel better and something is very wrong "
You WILL feet better and what you are going thru sounds typical of sub w/drawals.......PROMISE your symptoms will improve as healing occurs.
I honestly did not know that the bupe stayped for 21 days... that is interesting. especially because my gut issues didn't start until about 6 or 7 days ago and I'm on day 31.
I'm scared because I was taking the subs for sooooooo lonnnnng... years. at least 2, so i hope I can accept the process that needs to happen with that type of usage!!!
I'm 35 days clean after 5 years on subs. First month was horrible but I can sleep now and r/l gone and I'm starting to feel emotions I was emotionless in the beginning. Same problem though I'm super fatigued I have a new born and a two year old and it's so hard I never feel happy and I have mood swings bad. Up and down a lot one min I feel fine and the next like ****. So I'm prob not much help I'm asking the same question when will I have energy.
