Anxiety and opiate withdrawals


Hi everyone... it's been 5 months since I've last used opiates. I took 4-5 norcos a day for 5 years due to numerous surgeries. However I'm still having issues with anxiety... I've been having a lot of panic attacks lately. How long did it take for your anxiety to calm down? It's really affecting my life and my doctor keeps giving me benzos which I don't want. When will I start to feel more normal again?

Were you anxious before all this SarahJade?
5 months seems a long time for anxiety from withdrawal.

Truth be told benzoes would not be my choice for long term treatment either.

Can you maybe get a second opinion?

No I was never anxious before this. It started about 6 weeks after I quit the norcos. My doctor tried to put me on a few antidepressants too but those made me feel horrible. I've taken so much time off work to go to the doctors I'm starting to get worried that it won't go away. Am I the only one who's had issues months after detox?
