OxyContin Withdrawal

Limiting OxyContin Withdrawal Symptoms

In order to limit withdrawal, you should not stop taking OxyContin "cold turkey." Your healthcare provider can slowly decrease your dose at a rate that helps minimize withdrawal symptoms (most healthcare providers will be more than willing to help you stop taking OxyContin). Remember, withdrawal from OxyContin is not necessarily a symptom of abuse, and you should not be embarrassed to ask for help in this matter.
