Opiate WD help

I just got out of an opiate rehab treatment 2 weeks ago and now suddenly I feel like I'm going through the same WD effects from when I was at the clinic. I cannot hold any food down, stomach cramps returned along with nausea, diarrhea, and cannot hold down any foods liquids, or even ice chips for the last 3 days now. I haven't slept in 3 days now, and cannot get hydrated and am restless all over my body. Help.

Were you taking any other meds in rehab and after you left to help with the w/d's then just recently stopped them?

Actually yes, I only took hydroxizine for anxiety as needed, after about a week I stopped taking the anti seizure meds, then I only took my stomach cramp and nausea pills as needed. The insomnia meds hurt my stomach too much. Even when I was feeling "better" those couple days.

I too went in on 3 drugs and one was Methadone and one a benzo. The other was street bought adderral. They took it all away and I now have 2yrs and a lil over 6 months and can tell you that NO ONE should go c/t from a benzo. It was the Benzo that made my detox so long and hard. When I got out and finally made it home, I still was rocking in a chair. My sleep was so off too. It was the worse detox I have ever felt and thought it would never end. This was way different then when I just did the hydo/oxys alone.
The hydroxizine works like a benadyly. Even if you just got out, this still will go one for awhile as you had 3 drugs pull your nervous system and brain every which way. It all has to come to a balance.. Then if you have used for so long, you will get the mental as we do alot of unbalancing on all the neurotransmitters and more up stairs. This is what takes the longest. The physical should be calming down a bit. That was 3 drugs and one being a benzo. If you would like to talk private send me a PM. I sure feel for you becasue I was right there.

Try getting some Protein powder and adding some fruit to it. Put some Lemon in your water with a dash of sea salt as this will help keep you hydrated.

Put up some Boundaries so you can heal without any Drama or Stress. When you can eat make sure it is very healthy. Try getting some vit/min down as we need to replenish what we have lost during drug us. I got the liquid vit and liquid min right away because it was a bit better on the stomach. There is so much more, but right now I will send a healing prayer out to you. I wish you the best.
