Chills. Nausea. Extreme Agitation. These are but a few of the many Kadian withdrawal symptoms that can accompany a detox. Once physically addicted, withdrawal symptoms will kick in for patients who try to stop taking it or gradually lessen use. Kadian is a prescription narcotic painkiller used to treat moderate to severe pain. It contains morphine sulfate, which is very potent and can cause physical and/or psychological dependence. Kadian is also a drug of abuse, susceptible to illegal diversion and sale on the black market. Most people become addicted to Kadian after a legitimate prescription for pain leads to the development of a tolerance. Once the drug becomes ineffective in relieving pain, some patients may choose to escalate use. Addiction can develop swiftly from this point and requires medical detox to ensure safety. Many people are scared to go through the detox process because they fear the suffering so commonly associated with withdrawal. The Waismann Method of rapid detox takes the pain and suffering out of withdrawal through medical management.
Kadian Withdrawal Symptoms
Kadian withdrawal symptoms can vary among patients and can kick in within hours of last use. Withdrawal can be more severe for patients who have used the medication for long periods of time, taken high doses or misused it in some way. Common signs and symptoms of withdrawal include mood changes, agitation, tremors, runny nose, chills, sneezing, yawning, sleeplessness, anxiousness, restlessness, weakness, flu-like symptoms, depression, hallucination, delirium, cramps, diarrhea, sweating, vomiting, muscle and bone pain, confusion, extreme irritability and muscle spasms. One of the most obvious signs of withdrawal is an intense physical and/or psychological craving for Kadian. A patient who doesn’t realize he or she is addicted may experience the discomfort of withdrawal onset and take another dose to feel better. Health complications such as seizures could arise if you try to detox from Kadian without medical supervision.
Medical Management of Kadian Withdrawal Offered by Waismann Method
The Waismann Method of rapid detox offers medically-managed withdrawal to help ensure a sustained recovery and prevent many of the triggers that can lead to relapse. Our cutting-edge rapid detox procedure and follow-up care increase the chances for long-term recovery. The Waismann Method procedure occurs in the hospital where medical professionals monitor every step. We begin with the administration of intravenous medication to cleanse Kadian from patients’ systems. This happens while patients sleep lightly under deep sedation and takes less than two hours. We don’t use opiate replacement drugs including Suboxone and methadone to wean patients. They awake from our procedure opiate-free without awareness of the accelerated withdrawal symptoms that occurred while they were sedated. The entire hospital stay is a few days, and our program is safe, thorough, discreet and completely humane. Patients may also wish to take advantage of our Domus Retreat transitional living facility to continue recovery with programs such as biofeedback, massage, counseling and relaxation.
