A recent medical study uncovered a new method for opiate detox that doesn’t require prolonged maintenance or the use of opioid drugs, but instead treats withdrawal symptoms using a combination of tizanidine, hydroxyzine and gabapentin. Hydroxyzine for opiate withdrawal protocol consists of 8mg of muscle relaxant, tizanidine, every six hours; 100mg of the antihistamine, hydroxyzine, every four hours; and 300mg of the anticonvulsant, gabapentin, three times a day with a fourth dose of 600mg at bedtime.
Hydroxyzine for opiate withdrawal also proved to be very relaxing due to the use of muscle relaxants, which helped patients that may feeling anxious while going through the detox process.
This new drug detox protocol also allows for opiate addicts to more rapidly detox then Suboxone or methadone detox typically allows. However, suboxone detox remains one of the most common and effective treatment options for those looking for opiate detox.
