1. Clonazepam/Alprazolam
2. Methadone

1. I've been on either Clonazepam or Alprazolam for 10 struggling years and the first time I went off it took 8 months of taper and although I got off it I relapsed a couple years later and went back onto it. This time it was Clonazepam and I've been tapering for a year, switched to Diazepam to help taper once I got down to a low enough dose. Now I'm on 1mg of Diazpam, will finally off it next month. It takes forever to get off the benzos. (Clonazepam/Alprazolam) I still experience withdrawals after each dose taper.

2. Methadone withdrawals lasted roughly 6 weeks for me! The first 2 weeks I was puking my guts out and hallucinating God awful things like demons and being in Hell talking to Satan. It really felt like Hell. I'm surprised I didn't slit my wrists. Neither could I eat or I'd toss it up. I spent those first 2 weeks in bed and I actually shit my pants. I couldn't get out of bed. The entire following month I felt like I had a hardcore flu. It was like typical heroin withdrawals at their height everyday that month. I wanted to die those first couple weeks.

I once experienced withdrawal from perocet and opana at the same time, both prescribed medications for chronic pain issues. I thought I was dying, though I had gone through opiate withdrawal before. Which, everyone knows, is hell. I hallucinated and felt like the marrow in my bones was boiling. I slept for a handful of hours in a week. I didn't eat. I barely drank. My body was in so much agony I thought I wasn't going to make it, and of course there's the psychological shit to sift through as well. I made it through, but it was almost two weeks. Afterward, I swore I would never allow that much opiate power in my body again. And I refuse to touch opana. Too dangerous, too scary for me. I just use a light dose of percocet now, and life is much fuller.

benzos, barbs, ludes, and booze(GABAergic depressants).

if you're really addicted you know these drugs have the worst withdrawl out of any physicaly addictive drug.

i found this to be far worse than the physical monster that is opiate wd. To me that is 14 days of physical warfare, followed by 2 months of boredom. But the lyrica/benzo-like withdrawal easily took the cake.

Worst opiates to withdrawal from:

1. Methadone, by far!
2. Oxy, but it does last nearly as long as meth withdrawal 5 days instead of 15
3. herion, isnt as bad as oxy wds, but it last 7 days instead of 5

i'd rather withdrawl from opiates than GABAergics any day.

i've WD'ed from opiates a couple times, but i've never WD'ed from benzos or barbs because i've felt the onset of withdrawl so to this day i use benzos both because i love them and because the withdrawl scares me shitless.

take my advice: do not get yourself addicted to benzos, barbs, or booze.

heroin withdrawl is worse than oxy withdrawl imo. but not by much...

i've never done methadone but i can't see it being worse than heroin withdrawl. but thats just me and once again i've never tried methadone.

Methadone is by far the worst. think of the peak of oxy or heroin withdrawals that you get in say day 5 of not using either of them. now multiple how bad that feels by 3. then picture that hellish feeling still not being any better til the 10th day, and not being gone til day 15. thats what methadone withdrawal. Oh by the way, this was only from 40mg, and i only took that amount for about 2 weeks. i had a script of 120 10mgs pill per month, and i got locked up, so they made me take the full dose, where as before the month i spent in jail i only ever took them if i couldnt cop right away, it was fucking horrible

All Benzos. Was prescribed 3 mg Klonopin and 1 mg Xanax for 2 years. Hoooooooooly Shit ! I went to a detox center to get this over with and they put me on Phenobarbital for 5 days and sent me home.

I remember talking to the Doc in his office at the clinic and listening to him say "The Benzos are now out of your system. There is no more physical withdrawal. It is all in your head. The withdrawal you experience now is all psychological, not physical. It is like the phantom-limb sensation." Bullllllllll Shittttttttttt ! Benzos seriously fuck up your gaba receptors. I would get a panic attack every time I had a cup of coffee for months after wd. All in my head my ass!!! Omg I had anxiety so bad I would get a panic attack just answering the fucking phone ! Forget about anything else. This went on for about 4 months. Pure hell. I never thought it would end. Benzos are just evil.

And I had no physical anxiety before taking klonopin, just temporary life related stress. I don't recommend taking benzos to anyone. They are shit. Doctors that "push" them are sadistic.

Withdrawing from benzodiazepines your anxiety becomes much worse than it was before starting them when your coming off. Its heightened and panic attacks come easily, from the smallest things, especially if you suffered from them before starting benzodiazepines.

1. Benzos/Barbiturates (or any CNS depressant)
2. Ritalin
3. Heroin

From worst withdrawals to least worse, I'd say benzos/barbiturates were most terrible, then methylphenidate comedowns, and lastly, heroin. Fuck, going cold off of 20 alprazolam and a tiny amount of secobarbital was perhaps my worst drug experience EVER. The comedown from a methylphenidate binge is just as awful, but at least it only lasts 12 hours max (for me, anyway), or until I sleep it off. Heroin withdrawal is also an awful experience, but not as bad as I anticipated (and I've cold kicked dope 15+ times).
CNS depressant withdrawal is so goddamn awful for a variety of reasons, one being the duration. I only had a bad benzo habit for 7 months, and barbs were a rare treat, but it's been 2.5 months since I quit them, and I still have extreme anxiety, paranoia, and agoraphobia. It's not uncommon for these symptoms to last 6-12 months. Also, cold kicking CNS depressants can be deadly, with seizures and delirium tremens, etc. Although the normal physical withdrawal symptoms are present, the mindfuck is the most excruciating. Everything makes me severely anxious or have a panic attack, and if you had bad anxiety before going on benzos, it's SO much worse, even though I thought I'd already experienced the worst possible anxiety. It's almost impossible to keep from going crazy, and I feel like I'm imprisoned by my own mind. There are really no words to describe how awful this is, and how much I regret getting dependent on these.
Ritalin comedowns, while not withdrawal per se, are almost as awful as benzos, as they not only give you extreme anxiety, but severe dysphoria that can make one suicidal. Methylphenidate psychosis is absolutely horrible, and you just can't get comfortable or nothing interests you, and you're extremely depressed and irritable. Taking a benzo or having a drink is an incredible help, and basically reverses the comedown. These comedowns scare th shit out of me.
Heroin withdrawal was not nearly as horrifying as the former two. Compared to benzo withdrawal, heroin withdrawal is a fucking picnic. It's excruciating physically, but there's really not a lot of psychological symptoms (for me anyway, I know others may have a different experience). I'd describe going cold off of heroin as excruciating discomfort, I've experienced things that were more intensely painful than dopesick, but when you're rattling, it's more like every bodily system is going haywire at the same time, and nothing is functioning correctly, which gets extremely frustrating. Also, it's impossible to sleep through the pain, so you have to be conscious for basically all of it. The worst symptom is the muscle spasms in your arms and legs, and the skin crawling/hypersensitivity. However, with heroin WD's, you're hurting so bad that it's the only thing on your mind, you can't concentrate on your fears and insecurities like you do with benzo WD. I'm actually pretty happy during dope WD, in spite of the sickness.

i took xanax daily for about 2 or 3 months. i started off taking 4 mgs at once and worked up to taking 16mgs. i only did a short taper when i quit because i didn't think that i'd been taking xanax for long enough to go through withdrawals, even at high doses. how fucking wrong i was.

the w/d's were fucking terrible. i get severely depressed and suicidal. i knew that i did not want to die or kill myself and i knew that i wasn't going to, but i thought about dying and killing myself all the time. i cried almost every day. i would go for days without sleeping. my body and especially my hands were so shaky that it was almost comical. i do definitely get anxious about certain things, but no one's ever told me that i'm an anxious or nervous person. the anxiety from xanax w/d's is indescribable to someone who hasn't experienced it. one of my roommates would come home and my heart would pound and i'd start sweating and i was positive that they knew that i did too many drugs and that they were going to call the cops on me. whenever they'd make a phone call i'd try to listen in to make sure they weren't calling the cops. my knee dislocated when i was 13 and it still twists about once a year. if i'm watching a sports game or a movie and i see someone's knee get injured i get a pretty big twinge of anxiety, but nothing like anxiety during benzo w/d's. when i was out eating lunch with my mom and my aunt on day 4 of hainv no xanax an image of a dislocated knee came into my head and i could not get it out. i started moving my leg around and shifting positions pretty much uncontrollably because the idea of my knee twisting made me so uncomfortable and edgy that i couldn't sit still. nothing i told myself about how ridiculous i looked or how impossible it was for my knee to dislocate when i was sitting down made any difference. the anxiety totally overpowered my rational mind. my aunt and my mom are totally anti-drugs and they knew that i was fucked up on something. even that couldn't make me sit still and i can always maintain on any drug, aside from drinking too much booze. i couldn't drive because i was too afraid of getting into a car accident. i craved xanax so bad that i'd tear apart my room every day looking for stray pills, even though i knew i wouldn't find any. i don't know how i had the strength to not buy any more. the worst was when i'd think i was my normal self and then the depression and anxiety would hit me all over again and i started to be afraid that i would never go back to being normal. it was about a week and a half before i could control my behavior and act somewhat normally around other people, but the depression and anxiety lasted for a lot longer.

now if i ever take benzos for more than a few days in a row i make sure that i have neurontins around. they are fucking lifesavers! they totally take away the cravings and make the withdrawal symptoms almost non-existent. i've taken opiates (only tramadols and heroin) for more than a month a handful times and i've never gone through withdrawals. i swear it's because i've always started to take neurontins when i want to quit.

My worst withdrawals have been with quaaludes (yes, real ones) and opiates.

Opiate withdrawal probably made me feel more depressed, but quaalude withdrawal is a horrid monster as well. I actually vomited from those withdrawals, whereas I have never gotten nauseous from opiate wd.

I've lost count how many times I've suffered heroin withdrawals over the past 40 years which is seriously horrible. But back in the 70s I was taking about 30x10mg valium(blue ones) and df118s. To be honest, whenever I couldn't get any, the withdrawals were a nightmare. I was having fits which was like dying. It was like being on a perminant bad trip from acid. I shook so bad from head to toe. My nerves were shot to hell, I was in a 24 hour nightmare and all this went on for 6 months. Once the doctor gave me some 'epinutin' which blocked the fits and I stoped taking the valium, I put up with the other symptoms and after 6 months I was over it. It was worse than coming off H which I can do in about 6 weeks.
On the pills I also accidently overdosed and ended up in a coma and woke after two weeks on an artificial resporator because I was unable to breath by myself. I was so scared when I came round, I was like between life and death and I was looking down at my body pleading with god not to let me die. I was so desperate, I didn't wanna die. When I did come round I had wires and tubes coming out of every part of my body.
So I would say that benzo's are the worse to come off.(diazapam etc)

I'm with you 100% on the pills. As for the Methadone, it's same as coming off H, just twice as intense and stays in the system far longer. I promise you mate, methadone w/d is worse than heroin w/d. ( i read one of your earlier posts).

Alcohol and Benzo's rule the bad withdrawal department. Since one symptom which isn't really a symptom is death. Also seizures. Plus the horrible effects.

I took xanax 6mgs a day for 2-3 years and it was ruff coming off those... But for the last year or so iv been iv'g 160mg methadone thro a thingamijiggy that I rigged up from hospital iv lines and a large syring that you can get at a pharmacy. Well I quit cold turky from 160 mg and it's the worst thing I've ever gone thro in my life.. I really feel like just blowing my fucking head off to make it go away...so I'd have to say methadone is way worse to come off of at really high dose's then anything. And those of you that say you can't die from opiate wd.. Your wrong I've almost died from dehydrtion and I had a seazer..your can die from opiate wd.. At least methadone withdraw. Oh and if and when I make it throu this pure fucking hell I swear to god the wd's are gonna be enough to make me never touch that sick and evol drug again... EVER

Why in the world are you shooting up Methadone? That is stupid, it already has a oral bioavailability over 80% and IV'ing Methadone doesn't give a rush. Just take it orally. Its just as effective.

But yes, Methadone is a horrible drug to withdrawal from. For two weeks I never left the bed with exception of the toilet which I'd have to spend unclogging from all the puke and shit. I wanted to blow my fucking head off it was terrible. All the classic heroin withdrawals enhanced with a much longer duration.

It is stupid that's forsure.. But I've argued this with to many ppl so I'm gonna just say my part and be done.. When 160mgs of done get slamed in you in under 1 min THERE IS A RUSH that's what I've been chasing. And noo it's horrable for you witch is why I'm on day 10 of wd's tryin to stop. No drug is good for you so I'm sick of ppl sayn how bad shit I've been doing is when we are all doing drugs that are bad for us..

Argued what? You just admitted it's stupid; and you can't die no matter how bad opioid withdrawals are. GABAgerics CAN kill you.

If you think that dehydration is going to kill you from opioids your too stupid for not being well hydrated, and they don't screw with what you'd call your seazer [sic] threshold. :)

From what I understand it is benzo withdrawal by a long shot.

However, in my experience having never been dependent on benzos but having been dependent on Suboxone, heroin, oxycodone, and poppy pods, I would say that the poppies are the worst.

With heroin and oxy, I could always go out and do what I needed to do to get more opiates. With poppies, I was literally so sick when I ran out (my supplier gave me a moldy batch, and even in sickness I wasn't going to subject myself to that, with all of the horror stories I have heard) that I couldn't get myself out of the house without opiates, even for opiates. This was a mere six hours after I took 60 mg of oxycodone. Fortunately, a friend who was with me gave me another 60 mg of oxy and I was able to procure more opiates for a little bit, although soon after this I found myself on the Suboxone program because I couldn't come out to my dad about my dependence, nor could my family have afforded it if I did.

I should point out that I never even made tea. I would simply grind out the pods with a mortar and pestle and eat them raw, throughout the day. I found it much less unpleasant than the tea, and it got me much higher.

My kidneys failed during a heroin cold turkey withdrawal and if I wasn't taken to the hospital by my mother who is a nurse who noticed something...I would have been dead. It depends on how long the habit was and how much, what kind of H, did they have a prior painkiller history (since that destroys the liver) etc. It is ridiculous to say no one can die from a heroin withdrawal. You can die from anything.

That said, if you consider "the needle" a drug - most consider it an addiction. THAT is hard for me. I see any drug in front of me and I wanna inject it. But the worst drug withdrawal has been heroin due to the physical horror that happens and then the fact that you can't just sleep it away like meth...you are up knowing that the ONE THING that would stop this would be the reason why you are sick right now. And mentally? It is a lifetime withdrawal for me...But everyone has their drug "best friend/demon".

Oxy w/d - because it's my biggest demon (drug-wise) and I keep hopping back on, and riding it harder. + benzos, only did the combo w/d once. I didn't realize it until I started taking my medication again (for anxiety, clonazepam/temazepam). Horrendous - it's been summed up pretty well though, so I won't go into depth.

Hardcore, I could never bring myself to eat pod powder, I wish I would have tried before obtaining them became bullshit.

Good for you. Eight days is a great start, just be patient and don't give in to just one drink. It will probably suck for a while but if your not having seizures or serious withdrawal symptoms, you're past the worst.

Ten years is a lot of drinking, to stop and make it eight days is admitting you have a problem and taking control.

i did almost two whole weeks of benzo/opiate withdrawal with some crappy weed and drink; had to leave home and stay at a college house with my best friend; i could barely move, sleep was unheard of and my body ached and flailed around uncontrollably.....that was a few months IV use of Valium and Morphine interchangeably....some of the worst pain ever

well the worst thing I"VE been through was methadone at 150mg cold turkey. lost thirty pounds from not eating or drinking and shitting my life out. lasted roughly a month and i couldn't take the insomnia anymore. i slept maye 24 hours in thirty days. it was horrible. oxycodone was a mofo too. kicked that at 200mg cold turkey. i finally broke down on day 7 and started with tramadol and then back to oxycodone, hydrocodone, andthing that i could get basically.

First, whoever said that Klonopin is one of the nastiest benzos out there to come off of has never experienced a seizure from coming off of Xanax. Yes, it happens, and it happens often. I would take Klonopin over Xanax any day for that reason and that reason alone.

"Hey, why am I back in my bed when I should be finishing my paper?" (The girlfriend is on the end of the bed crying.) OH, RIGHT, GRAND MAL XANAX SEIZURE. FUCK!

I haven't experienced many withdrawals, just nasty side-effects from the drugs I have done. But I would have to say that, in my experience, the worst drug to come off of is amphetamines, Adderall. It just screws with your mind so ridiculously bad that, when all is said and done, you are not even sure who the hell you are anymore or who you were to begin with. Oh, and the jaw-clicking and snapping that persists years after and will most likely never go away, yeah...

opiates and opioids are just a mean bitch. luckily it the least damaging of all the drugs, but the most addicting. many will argue and i say TO EACH THEIR OWN! everyone i mean everyone is different. i mean my wife was addicted to suspensions. ya SUSPENSIONS as in hanging by giant hooks from an apparatus. so i guess she was addicted to pain and the rush she would get was wicked. i've seen her eyes get pinned yes pinned after being pierced and hung. she would often nod out during the suspension.

worst was coming off of a high dose of methadone and i nearly killed myself seriously.i also quit the tramadol at the same time too so i'm sure it added to it. i didn't really know tramadol was so addicting at the time.

I had Tramadols when I was coming off from Methadone cold turkey and they did nothing. I was still puking. My Tramadols were just scattered all over the floor, if I found some that were close near my bed I'd take like 8. I couldn't leave my head unless I had to puke. Urgh I hated that experience.

The one WD symptom i can never shake or get over (the worse IMO) is the RLS or Over all body pain and restlessness.... its the fucking worse..... i cant describe how utterly helpless you feel and how much it sucks.... i would rather be in extreme pain then go through the restlessness that it causes.....

I remember my 2 weeks stay in hell coming down off Benzos and blueberries, oh my ol lady at the time was soo pissed at me. I had been hiding it for 3 months, somehow. I told her and she flew off the handle and left me to withdraw alone. a hour later she comes back with my favorite meal from Mcdonalds heh. Which I couldn't even eat, I think she planned it that way. But anyway, I sat in my bed for 2 weeks with 2 fans on high pointed right at me. The stomach cramps were enough to make me cry, I swore I was dying. I said it every 20 seconds or so. The only thing that helped was sex and water. My head felt like it was full of air and could pop any second.The anxitey was the worst, everytime my chest hurt I swore I was having heart failure or something to that extent. Id say I never had a wosre withdrawl then this, even coke was a walk in the park.

Quit cold turkey every weekend during 5 years "to keep my cns healthy".

Benzos hands down.
Quit cold turkey every weekend during 5 years "to keep my cns healthy".
Worst was derealization and insomnia.

The depersonalisation experienced is akin to a bad psychedelic trip. It is awful.

alcohol withdrawal is the worse.. its the only withdrawal you can die from.. i know opiate withdrawal's feel as if your gunna die.. but alcohol withdrawal you can actually die from, so i'd say alcohol

No its not the only thing. You can also die from benzodiazepine & barbiturate withdrawals.
