FWIW I understand that some people experience adrenal exhaustion during withdrawal from these drugs. It is not commonly diagnosed as the symptoms are nebulous but some think it is fairly common especially if the person has been under long term stress.

I was taken off like any other drug in a hospital....even addictionologist know nothing about protracted wd....after 3 months off I was so bad i couldn't talk on phone, cook etc....I found people on yahoo groups that went thru this and there are some major posters out there.....it basically shocked my whole body, I couldn't function, the first year if I walked to mailbox that was it for the day...this stuff effects the HPA (hypothalamus pituitary adrenal) axis. Most people can come off with little problems but if you are in the 15% that don't, Heroin is a Sunday school picnic...there are hundreds of people just in US that have had their lives destroyed but this shit.....they know much more about it in England and Australia.....I am good friends with the woman who brought this to light more in the US.....this stuff alot of the time starts to be like toxic so it can start effecting you while you are on it, getting weaker and weaker, more hostile, more anxiety, poor judgment, weight gain or loss......I had over 59 symptoms and let me tell you......I know people who went thru this and had cancer one time in their life......They would chose cancer again before this......it was worse than being in war and I DO NOT JEST
