Table of Contents

Pain and suffering usually accompany Oxymorphone withdrawal and other similar opiate prescription medications. In fact, this is why many people have trouble seeking help with detox.
Advancements in detoxification science have made it possible to essentially skip this withdrawal phase, thanks to the Waismann Method of Rapid Detox. Our unique and pioneering procedure set the field of opiate detox abuzz more than a decade ago. Since then, we have perfected our in-hospital procedure that can get you opiate-free in a safe, comfortable manner within days.
Oxymorphone is a narcotic analgesic used to treat moderate to severe pain. It can be habit-forming, leading quickly to addiction for those who use it regularly or those who abuse it. A physical addiction to oxymorphone is characterized by the presence of withdrawal symptoms once use is stopped abruptly.
The Waismann Method knows you have suffered enough already and we don’t want to inflict additional pain.

The Difference Between Waismann Method and Other Detox Facilities

With most traditional detox facilities, patients must go through withdrawal to begin the recovery phase. Some other programs rely on opiate replacement to help wean patients and alleviate withdrawal from such as drugs:

This can lead to the need for a second detox as these drugs are also narcotics. The Waismann Method uses a non-narcotic pharmaceutical approach to detox patients and eliminate the suffering of withdrawal.
Oxymorphone withdrawal typically kicks in within hours of your last dose. This process begins when the body starts detoxing from the drug. It is essential to seek medical help for oxymorphone detox because withdrawal symptoms can be quite severe.

Oxymorphone Withdrawal Symptoms and How We Manage Them

Symptoms can include:

  • Fever
  • Severe drug cravings
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Runny nose
  • Yawning
  • Restlessness
  • Weakness
  • Cramps
  • Diarrhea
  • Chills
  • Muscle and bone pain
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Muscle twitching.

More severe symptoms could develop in long-term users if they try to detox on their own without medical supervision. These could include:

  • Seizures which can be fatal.

Depending on factors including the severity of the addiction, oxymorphone withdrawal can last weeks or months. Managing this phase is important because opiate addiction is a progressive condition with a high rate of relapse. An effective detox procedure that targets withdrawal will decrease the chance for a relapse.
