Opiate Withdrawal Remedies & Home Remedies for Opiate WithdrawalOpiate Withdrawal Remedies

This is a collection of opiate withdrawal remedies to help others recovering from opiates to get clean without the pain of opiate withdrawal cold-turkey. I have personally used the remedies listed and am very thankful for them. I am always looking for new remedies, If you know of any good remedies that have helped you please share them by commenting on this article.

Food & Drink

If you can’t eat, drink heavy protein shakes. Make sure you get enough sugar, vitamins and protein  I have kicked dope several times, and it was much easier when I was drinking energy drinks and protein shakes full of vitamins.

Using Loperamide (Imodium) for Withdrawals

Loperamide Tablets (Imodium) is an opiate that doesn’t cross the ‘blood-brain’ barrier, so it will not get you high and it help your stomach a great deal. Use Aspirin to lower your already elevated blood-pressure and Ibuprofen will help a bit with your muscle aches.

(below information is courtesy of AliveandWell from Reddit.com)

There’s a method for using Loperamide (active ingredient in Immodium) to combat withdrawals and taper off just like a suboxone taper. The obvious advantage here is that it’s super cheap and you don’t have to visit a doctor.

A lot of people don’t believe it’s true. How the hell can a diarrhea medicine help with my opiate withdrawals? However my own evidence supported by hundreds of other testimonies throughout the opiate community shows that it does work. How? Loperamide is a full opiate agonist that doesn’t cross the blood brain barrier. Well, it does but it’s instantly kicked out by transporter proteins. It helps with diarrhea by acting on the opiate receptors in the bowels and causing constipation. Just like other opiates like heroin and oxy.

Disclaimer: I, nor the people who have given supporting testimonies, do not have the credentials to support these ideas professionally.

The idea with this is that if you take a mega-dose of Loperamide it will overwhelm the transport proteins so that some of the drug will slip by and act on the CNS. The other idea is that there are periphery opiate receptors throughout the body and activating these soothes the majority of the withdrawal symptoms. Both make sense to me but seeing as there’s been no studies it’s impossible to say how it works.

By mega-dose we’re talking 40-100mg. The normal dose on the box is 2mg. 40mg for moderate users and 100mg for heavy users. I personally used 60mg and had a $30-$50/day heroin smoking habit. This sounds like a lot and a lot of people wonder what the risks are. From what I’ve gathered from various resources, including professional medication books, there are no real risks and specifically the risk of toxicity occurs at doses much much higher. People also wonder: Won’t taking that much diarrhea medicine stop me up for days? The answer is not really. First of all, your body already has a tolerance to opiates and the constipating effects of said opiates. Secondly, the drug will last 12-24 hours after which bowels will move normal again. Thirdly, if one does experience bowel issues (can’t take a shit for 3 days) a mild laxative (non-stimulant) will fix it no problem.

Start with a dose on the lower end based on your use. If you’re a moderate user start with 40mg (20 pills. Don’t worry. They’re pretty small). If after 3 hours (takes a while to kick in) you feel little or no relief, increase your dose by another 20mg. This means take 20mg more. Do NOT re-dose by taking 40mg + 20mg more for a total of 60mg. That would mean you will now have 100mg in your system when we only wanted to bump it up to 60mg total.

The drug has a pretty long half-life which means it will provide relief for a good amount of time. In my experience I only need to dose every 24 hours. Some people say every 12 hours. Find what works for you by finding the lowest dose that works for you (see above) then waiting until you feel mild-moderate discomfort. Note the time it took and use this as your dosing interval.

Now we get to the taper part. Because Loperamide is an opiate agonist your body WILL become dependent on it meaning if you stop cold turkey you’ll experience physical withdrawals. From what I’ve heard it’s much like withdrawing off suboxone – no fun. However it is easy to taper off of because it comes in small doses and it doesn’t get you high (except I’ve noticed it has a very faint “high” to it. Nothing like good opiates and not something to chase after). You’re not going to be craving it. Taper off by decreasing your dose 2mg every day. Or more if you can handle it. Maybe 2mg every dose. With this slow of a taper you’re not going to notice much discomfort and when you jump off 2mg at the end it’s going to be a very small jump.

Myself and others have noticed the right dose will take care of 90-100% of the withdrawal symptoms. I can sleep, eat, take care of business, and even have energy during the day! It’s a miracle! I wish I learned about this so much sooner and now I’m spreading the word.

Buy the store brand not name brand Immodium. Store brand is about 10x cheaper if you go to Costco and buy Kirkland Signature brand. 400 pills for $5.

Orther Meds That Help

Seroquel , a common anti-psychotic, will knock you out or at least help you sleep. I’ve used it before to help me through the first couple days. Try Clonidine, A non-addictive and non-narcotic anxiety and blood-pressure med, it will reduce your cold chills, sweats and restlessness and is often given at hospitals for opiate withdrawal.

    I have a heavy dilaudid and heroine addiction and I need help!! Rehabs, methadone, suboxone, etc. nothing helps. I’ve quit by myself numerous times but it never lasts longer than a month. I’ve battled with addiction for 8 years now. I’m terrified to try this Imodium method, my grandmother takes this and I’ve used it before but I’ve only taken like 1/2 a pill and couldn’t shit for a week! You guys are taking 20?!? I’d like to keep my colon… Any other methods pleaseeee???

    I have found the miracle prescription that only has one downfall…no generic. Lyrica. I found it by accident when I was looking up the scripts in my cabinet and cross checking with the term “opiate withdrawal”. It truly works, but only comes as a script. You can also build up a tolerance to it quickly but by then you are past the worst symptoms. Most important, FIND A SAUNA!!! Hydrate yourself with Vitamin Water Zero which is loaded with B Vitamins and Electrolytes. Get a trial membership to a gym that has one and go everyday. You feel better and sweat out the toxins that are stored in your fat cells. They say you get a mild high as they are released from your fat cells! LOL

      September 20, 2013 at 12:40 am

      Yes i have taken Lyrica also while in withdrawl and it helps. but Loperamide (immodium) seems to help more. i wonder how well they work together. Wish i had some Lyrica now! Im on day one.

    Was wondering if anyone else has tried the loperamide lately for withdraws. I am currently taking 120mg a day of OxyContin and 80mg of Norco. This has been going on for 4yrs because of several back surgeries. I want off all this crap but feel like I’m stuck in a hole and got to take it to survive or feel normal. I have tried detox in the past and gave in because the stomach pain was unbearable. I also read somewhere about taking Zantac and drinking grapefruit juice along with the loperamide and was wondering your thoughts on this. I really want off these things but am terrified of doing it as the stomach pain made me want to put a bullet in my head. Please any advise will be greatly appreciated.

    I was an opiate addict for over 10 years, got clean for four, and recently had a moderate relapse after an injury. It is certainly not the worst I’ve ever had, but withdrawal symptoms can make anything feel impossible. In the spirit of ‘getting clean’ I hesitate to bring this up, but I personally have zero qualms about Marijuana use as I have used it to treat chronic illness for 3 years in lieu of opiates and additional Rx’s. It certainly can ease opiate withdrawal symptoms, namely, nausea, anxiety, restlessness and pain. Again, I am not advocating further drug use to anyone, but my experience and research, along with personal success without developing a further dependence, is I think worth noting.

        How long do you wait before you start tapering off the loperamide? How long should you take the loperamide for?

          May 7, 2013 at 6:28 am

          1-3 weeks. It depends on your tolerance. Also if you can tolerate slight WD then let off quicker…

    I have dealt with an opiate habit for almost 15 years after back surgery. I can/could take 15 30mg roxies every morning or 15 methadone. Thats 450mg of oxycodone or 150 of methadone.
    The Cure: In the 70’s a doctor did a study where he treated heroin addicts with large amounts of vitamin C. He is on utube in a radio spot. Anyway, it cures you immediately. Try 30 grams a day and then go down. Maybe 2 grams every hour. Build your body up with good diet during and after.

    Great info! This is my second time kicking the opioid habit. I just started taking them again last summer when my back went out, I then had surgery in October of last year. I’m still in a lot of pain but I’ve got Ibprofen and ill see about non narcotic pain meds. I have a high tolerance for pain. I have been doing great by taking…….. Ibprofen, aspririn, multivitamin, b12 vitamin, energy drinks and l-tyrosine vitamin. I also stay busy. I read a lot or do some sort of art or walk. It all helps me. :)

    Hello, i have been on loratabs or perkocets for 2 yrs now. I’ve quit cold turkey once for like 8 days but then relapse :-( Today is my LAST day of my meds. I have done ANYTHING to get some more. I’ve paid for them or borrowed them over the last year. It’s horrible knowing that I’ve spent my families money on this sh*t!!. I would have NEVER thought pain pills would so this to people! So TOMORROW MAY 27,2013 will be my 1st day of quitting. I have 4 children (set of twins that are 2, a 9 yr old and a 12 yr old) so it’s VERY hard for me NOT to be able to just lay around. And just GO through it. I have NO help. Nobody knows about my addiction except my husband and he works everyday all day so I’m by myself. If I can make it to day 4 then I’m alone better. It’s just getting to day 4 w/o borrowing money or trying to find someone to let me get some from. I have alot of health issues why I am on loratabs or perkocets. I can take up to 80-90mg of either loratabs or perocet a day. Idk how the HELL I’m gonna do this again but I HAVE to!! Plz say a prayer for me that I make it through this. I have severe constipation issues (not going poop for 2 wks at a time) so I’m worried bout taking the imodium. But I’ll try it if I can’t handle the withdrawal. Congrats to all of U that have kicked the habit and I hope that u have continued to stay clean :-) When I quit for the 8 days awhile back ago OMG it was SO nice! I was back to my old self again & I LOVED IT! I DEFF want to be like that again bc I’m tired of wondering where I’m getting more when run out. It’s time for a new start again and I pray I can do it again. If I had someone to give me encouraging words or someone to talk me out of getting more I kno that would help but my husband does NOT understand how this feels. He feels bad for me but doesn’t really understand. Lord I how I can get through this!! Thanks for listening!! And wish me luck bc I’m doing it cold turkey unless I get the imodium!!

    Me and my husband quit cold turkey 8 days ago today…and we spent the afternoon on the beach today. We are both working again after taking a few days off and after leaving our children with my mom. The Imodium trick does work and while I didn’t use it in the beginning I did ur it a few days after…only cause my bowels were erupting constantly..we have been addicts of opiates for seven years and it is amazing to be off it now. Ahh the money we are going to save!!

    Loperamide (2mg tabs) are at Wal*mart for $4.88/200 count. I was taking from 8 to 12 Vicodin (10/325, the yellow ones) per day for approximately 9 years. Every month for 9 years, I would run out a few days to a week before my refill date, thus prompting my drug seeking habit. I would normally buy 40 or 50 to get me through until mine arrived.

    This month, I refused to pay the dealers “new” price, so I came home empty handed to an empty pill bottle. The withdrawals were almost immediate once I realized I had 9 more days to go until “refill date.”

    After hours of drooling on the computer, I went to the Dollar*General*Store and bought 100 Vitamin C tabs for $3.00 and Wa*Mart for 200 Loperamide. In the parking lot, with my eyes watering, sneezing, and overall feeling of s*hit, I chewed up 5 Vitamin C tabs and took 12 Loperamide tabs and washed them down with a drink of water.

    On my way home, a feeling of warmth overcame me, my eyes cleared up, the sneezing stopped and I actually felt “normal” (like I had taken 3 Vicodin minus the euphoria). Before bed that same night, I took 3 Vitamin C and 5 more Loperamide (10mg’s). I slept good and woke up feeling fine. This was day 2 of ZERO pills. After eating a piece of toast with butter/jelly, I dosed another 3 Vitamin C tabs and 10 Loperamide. I felt fine all day long, until bedtime, then I felt my skin starting to crawl and my eyes water up. This time I skipped the Vitamin C and just took 5 Loperamide, 30 minutes later – all symptoms gone.

    I continued this regimen of Vitamin C and Loperamide for the next 8 days (got my ‘script filled 1 day early). I did not open the bottle. Instead, I gave it to my wife to lock up in her safe at work. I continued the Vitamin C and Loperamide until all 200 count pills were gone.

    I have been “clean” from Vicodin for 38 days now. I now have 2 bottles of 10/325’s locked up out of my reach. When the mental cravings overcome me, I take a very long gulp of liquid Immodium (about half a bottle) and the mental cravings disappear within 5 minutes.

    So, In my own personal experience, yes, Loperamide will stop about 99.5% of all opiate withdrawals. BTW, the Vitamin C tabs were 500mg per chewable tablet and the Loperamide were 2mg each (light green/oval shape).

    IMO, for a “normal addict” (6-12 hydrocodone 10’s per day), I would recommend starting with 5 Vitamin C tabs and 12 Loperamide (24mg) tabs. Just wash them down with water. It WILL STOP that gnawing, gut wrenching feeling and STOP that urge to score, make some calls, run to the ER, count your dollars for the pill man, all those feelings will go away. Give it a try, it’s cheap, it works and I know for a fact that if I can do it, ANYONE can do it.

    My addiction is ruining my life. I want to quit but the withdrawal is unbearable. I started out with half a 15 once in while then quickly went to 30s. I got lots of things done at home , my pain was gone and felt great. Then when I didn’t have I started feeling ill . I had no idea I was withdrawing. Well then I needed a 30 to get out of bed then at lunch and of course needed one to sleep. 90mg a day got very expensive especially with 2 of us. Then along came heroin, much cheaper. That habit went from 5 bags a day to 20 (2bundles) a day. He went on methadone (i don’t want to replace one drug with another plus that withdrawal I heard was worse) I tapered down dose but can’t seem to go lower than 6 bags a day (2 3x day). I really really want to kick this mentally I and ready just not for symptoms (electric arms and legs mostly) I am going to try Imodium tomorrow so please pray and wish me luck. I am grateful that you posted your story and I found it.thank you and I will get back to To u

    Take 5 lopes and 3 naproxen as soon as you feel shitty. Do this twice a day for 3 days and the worst is over. Take more naproxen if u need but you don’t need those crazy high amounts of lope. Now this will cure 95 of the physical stuff, but it is up to you to stay away from the pill people. Delete numbers, don’t talk to people who use. Think about the wasted money, the unsavory people who you are forced to deal with, the time wasted. You need to be a fuckin hermit and stay away from all the people and places that get it, have it, use it! You can do it – just grow some balls and say “enough”.

      I want to say I was addicted to Viks due to a severe back injury to the point I was eating my bottle of 90 vik 15’s within two to 3 days then I started using the oc 80’s on top of that to the point I was ripping 7-8 of those a week on top of the Viks, once my doctor realized I was always calling him for refill weeks before the script would refill he cut me off. I started to doctor hop, went to different ER’s to get my scripts etc i found I spent more time shopping for my next fix rather than caring for my family and children and realized I needed help immediately. I had what I thought was a friend introduce me to subs started taking those and was hook on 4 subs a day that’s $40 a day times 7 days = 280 a week or 1120 dollars a month that’s sickening when I think about it. I thankfully never sold or stole anything to kill the addiction. I finally said enough 6 days ago. I can honestly say the remedy I’ve chose to use is working well, I take 20 Imodium, 3 neurotin or naproxen, a men’s multi-vitamin and I’m making it thru each day it’s not easy or fun but all I keep saying to myself is each day will bring me closer to being free of this life of pills as we all know it only has 3 ways out, death, arrest or get off the addiction and become clean and sober. I am very thankful that I have a support system with my wife and a very close friend that are coaching me threw it as well. Build the wall and hide away and beat the demons people please this life of addiction is hell, just keep reminding yourself what you’ve lost to this demon and think of all you will gain once you do kick the monkey off your back. I send you all best wishes in your fight to sobriety and I know once you set your mind to becoming clean and stay committed you can and will beat it!!!

    I have been using heroin for about 20 years now. I average about 10 bags a day. I have been on a suboxone program for two years now, but I have been selling my suboxone for money so I can buy dope. I have had brief moments of success with the suboxone when I was on vacation away from my drug infested environment. The problem with suboxone is that I find is almost impossible to go through the withdrawal to get sick enough to take suboxone. I tried a 8 mg suboxone pill on Friday, but even though I waited about 23 hours after my last heroin usage before taking it, I still felt sick and ended up doing heroin on top of it as an attempt to feel better. Of course, it did not help. I am so glad I came across this forum because I really want to attempt to withdraw without the suboxone. I’m going to try the remedies prescribed here. I just hope they work. Thanks.

    plz don’t judge me. I found out I was 8 weeks pregnant while already addicted to heroin, or any opiate really. I have read that the best time to taper and come off is during my second trimester and that’s coming soon, I also hear suboxone isn’t good for the baby, the naloxone so I’m weary taking it and beyond that, wd from suboxone is tough. I’m glad I found this site, I’m going to try this method, it’s got to be better than heroin or suboxone. I want to quit, not just maintain and have an addicted newborn.

    Thank you so much!

    I am using loperamide to withdraw from tramadol, took no more than 30 mg total loperamide over the course of the day yesterday, which was day 1 of withdrawal, and this morning haven’t even had to take any yet. I took my last loperamide at a little after five p.m. yesterday. I wanted to take as little as possible to cover my symptoms. I went off my tramadol (400 mg daily, mind you, which is the max dose prescribed) once before a few years ago and was sick for ten days. This is absolutely incredible. I took stool softeners last night, am hoping I can go today or tomorrow. I’m hoping not to have to take the loperamide for more than 3 days, since personally I don’t seem to need a lot for my symptoms. Don’t want an additional problem!

    Along with your post, I have read several others, including people who are trying all kinds of tricks to get the loperamide to remain in the brain. I wouldn’t advise that, and I would not advise taking large amounts of it with alcohol, these people are self destructive. We should say our blessings we got relief from withdrawal agony and let it all be a lesson to us.

    I’m going to get a TENS machine and hope it gives me some relief from my back and neck pain so I’m not tempted to poison myself anymore. Meanwhile, thank you loperamide.
