Withdrawing from Opiates and Opioids
Coping With Drug Withdrawal Diarrhea and Stomach Pain
Diarrhea isn't something many people feel comfortable talking about, but the distress caused by severe diarrhea can be a major factor impacting the decision to quit drugs for many drug users. Diarrhea and stomach pain from diarrhea can be withdrawal symptoms among people who have been addicted to some drugs, particularly opiates, or even after a period of intense substance use. Symptoms may range from mild to severe. When drugs or alcohol are used constantly, the brain has to adjust to changes in the functioning of neurotransmitters, the chemicals in the brain that affect the nervous system. When these substances are stopped, it forces the brain and body to have to change again, creating unpleasant physical and mental withdrawal symptoms. Diarrhea, stomach pain, and vomiting are often experienced by people going through withdrawal from opioids and other drugs.

Opiates, also known as narcotics  , are very powerful painkillers. Opiate addiction and tolerance can produce extremely uncomfortable symptoms if users withdraw from the drug quickly without tapering down slowly. Even for those who are tapering off an opiate, withdrawal can sometimes be extremely difficult to deal with.
