Hypothetical question,
If a person takes 1 to 2mgs of Subs and they still have a small amount of opiates still in their system and they go into PAWS, how long will the PAWS symptoms last? I am sure the answer is on this website, but this is a kind of an emergency question that I need a quick answer.
Please help with an answer!

Short answer, not very loug. It would depend on tolerance, or amount of full agonst.
Also, PAWS, isn t the same as PW s..
PAWS is Post acute Withdrawal symptoms
PW is Precipitated Withdrawal. .two different things here.

Paws can occur after a time wnen someone has detoxed or say jumped from opiates only to find life on its own depressing, and problematic.

Pw, well that is taking Buprenorphine way to soon at induction or when tnere is full agonst opiates still in control of the reseptors basically. ...

Talkzone has full posts regarding this too...

Sorry Razor,
This is what I thought,
PW = Precipitated withdraws=Before you take Subs
PAWS= Post acute withdraw symptoms= After taking Subs
Isn't this correct?
Anyways, I didn't think the reaction from taking Subs wouldn't last very long if a person only had a small amount of, lets say Methadone for instance. Couple hours maybe?



Edit: I understand now, I was getting regular old WD's and PW's mixed up and PAWS has nothing to do with either. It is something totally separate.

Thanks Razor for your previous post!
