I have been clean from buprenorphine for a little over a week.I have been using 2mg a day for the past 6-8 months.Mood swings are also common, with bouts of anxiety or depression.
How long buprenorphine withdrawal lasts varies depending on how frequently you used the drug and how large the doses were.
Week 1: In the first week after stopping buprenorphine, week you will probably continue to to feel aches and cramps within the stomach area and in your joints.
You may be uncomfortable during this time period and have difficulty sleeping.
It is recommended that you join a support group or see a psychologist who can help see you through the protracted or post acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS). With continued use of buprenorphine, there comes a point where the brain produces in an inadequate amount of neurotransmitters in the body.
People going through buprenorphine PAWS manifest long lasting changes in the brain as a result of long term use.
