As with most drug withdrawals, the symptoms associated with withdrawal depend on the amount consumed and for how long. Fentanyl is not typically associated with fatal withdrawals if one were to go ‘cold turkey’, also known as without medicated assistance, however, due to the symptoms of opioid withdrawals it is an extremely difficult process to manage on one’s own.

Symptoms include:

  • Fatigue
  • Sweating

  • Muscle and Joint Pain
  • Chills
