You are not alone. Millions of people like you are getting drug abusers after prescription of the pain-killers. In my practice, I have never seen withdrawal from 7 years of using opiates as a “cold turkey”. The advice to stop taking opioids is not practical. The problem is that fentanyl requires increasing doses and decreasing doses cause hypersensitivity
to any pain. Medically, it is called opioid-induced hyperalgesia
or opioid-induced abnormal pain sensitivity.
In my Ebook: Healthy pancreas, healthy you” in the part 3, I describe in detail the process of withdrawal.
Fortunately, it is possible to get rid of fentanyl with supervision of the knowledgeable, experienced, licensed health practitioner. Usually, it takes 5-7 days, and it is not so miserable and relatively safe. I don’t believe in one approach. I use nutritional supplements, acupuncture
, herbs, hypnosis
, special diet, cleansing techniques, for example, colon hydrotherapy
, etc. Using that helps to improve brain chemistry, detox from drug, alleviate the worst symptoms of the withdrawal, such as insomnia and pain, make aversion to drug, etc.
