Withdrawal usually starts within eight hours for drugs like these.
Longer-acting benzos like Valium and Klonopin can take up to two days from the last dose of the drug before symptoms start to arise.
2. Acute Withdrawal
The second and most severe stage of withdrawal starts between one and four days after your final dose. Symptoms usually peak around this time, and the added physical and mental stress can be highly unpleasant. This stage may last up to four weeks.
3. Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms
Even after the initial detox resolves, many users experience something called post-acute withdrawal symptoms (PAWS). These are unpredictable waves of withdrawal symptoms such as insomnia, anxiety, and dysphoria, and in some people, PAWS continues for months after quitting.
