How flashes, Lortab withdrawel?

I have just recently got off opiates after a few months of use. I was at first taking 2 Lortabs daily and then to get the same effect started taking 4 daily. I have never had any addiction before, alcohol, cigs, drugs, etc... This is a first. I had 2-3 days of Hell but then on day 4 felt normal. Then day 6 which is yesterday I started having hot flashes. That is basically my only symptoms left but it is annoying because my face is extremely hot. I keep cold wash cloths on me and a fan directly in my face. It is miserable. I am still not as hungry as I was, a little moody and my pain was bad yesterday, my pain is good today... Other then that do you know if hot flashes a sign of Opiate withdrawel? Also does anyone know what can help the hot flashes. I have drank 3 glasses of water just awhile go and I can say that it helped a good bit. Thanks for your advice, those pills are just a demon. I am happy to quit them!

I'm happy for you too. Congrats.
I don't have an answer though. Can you google w/d symptoms and how to cope?

Hang in there. I too am trying to stop taking opiates. I have been addicted for years, it took me over 2 months to taper down. I too have hot is annoying! But, you are on day 7, and that is GREAT. You shouldn't have too many more days where you will have any symptoms. GOOD LUCK!!

Hi Brandy

Welcome to SR

I think seeing a doctor if you're worried is always better than asking an internet board or googling your symptoms

We have a substance abuse forum here too - read may find people with experience down there as well?

Substance Abuse - SoberRecovery : Alcoholism Drug Addiction Help and Information

Hope the hot flashes abate soon

I'm glad you have decided to live a sober life.

Please do talk to your dr about your symtpoms, and keep posting here.
