Heroin withdrawal signs and symptoms

Those who are addicted to heroin not only become physically dependent on the substance but are also afraid to stop using for fear of the symptoms they may experience when they stop using. Withdrawal symptoms from heroin can develop as soon as a few hours after sustained use. Someone who is withdrawing from longtime heroin abuse and dependence is at risk of serious medical complications and should seek professional medical personnel for help. Some effects of withdrawal include:

Intense craving for heroin

Extreme sweating

Nausea and vomiting

Severe muscle aches and pains

Cramping in the limbs

Feelings of heaviness of the body

Extreme pain in muscles and bones

Crying jags


Cold sweats

Runny nose



Death can occur when other medical conditions are present

The physician or detox facility will know that. Let them decide.

Can you use herion to help withdrawals on suboxone?

This seems counter productive as Suboxone is used to help withdrawl from Heroin. lf you are experiencing withdrawl while using Suboxone, or when tapering down from Suboxone, talk to your doctor. lf you have been using Suboxone without a doctor's prescription, and are now without it, talk to a doctor, a pharmacist or an addiction clinic. Heroin would be your worst option to help with withdrawl. At home help for withdrawl symptoms: imodium, ASA or ibuprofen or naproxin, something to help you sleep such as Benadryl or Gravol or better yet, a prescription sedative from your doctor. Note - do not use Nyquil to help you sleep.
