Tomorrow I will be one week clean of opiates and since the 3rd day of being clean I've felt great. This is very unusual because withdrawal lasted at least a week for me before and my mood was complete shit for even longer.
I just now realized the explanation for this is due to the venlafaxine I'm taking. This also concerns me. I've always been weary about methadone and suboxone because it seems like they only delay your withdrawals. I hope this isn't the case with venlafaxine because it is chemically similar to tramadol. I know about shitty ssri withdrawal so should I be expecting that plus opiate like wd when I finally come off Venlafaxine?
Guh.... fucking doctors.
