Celebrex withdrawal symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Celebrex withdrawal symptoms

celebrex

I felt no withdrawal symptoms in my transition from ultram to subutex and very, very minimal withdrawal symptoms when I stopped the subutex on September 29th 2008 (just over a week ago). I tried to quite ultram on my own many, many times but could not handle the severe withdrawal symptoms that I experienced. The mental part was just as bad, if not worse, than the physical. I hope you are still around because I think you would be a perfect candidate for subutex.
I don't get aches and pains much but all I want to do is fall into a really deep sleep for 3 or 4 days and wake up with all the withdrawal symptoms gone. Everyone out there stay strong and good luck with whatever demons of your own you're dealing with. My heart goes out to all of us who deal with these feelings on our own.
After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW! Serious withdrawal symptoms including joint and muscle pain, stomch issues, fatigue, depression and a strange hollowness in my nerves ensued. I didn't feel I could just stop functioning for a week or two or whatever it would take, so I used some hydrocodone that I had to help me get my tramadol use down to 100mg per day over the course of a week.
My approach is to not rush it to avoid seizures or really unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. The Vicodin and the Tramadol, I quit them cold turkey 19 days ago, but I relapsed and took one of each one about four days after stopping, they did not help with my pain and I haven't touched them since then.
But, call the drug company that makes this drug and ask them if there have been sufficient studies done on patients taking this and another drug like Vioxx, like Cymbalta, Celebrex, Boniva. What about a diabetic? Can they take this w/ the new drug while being on insulin? There are no studies on how these drugs interact w/ each other and the efficacy. We are the studied ones. And that is scary to me.
It talked about a lot of different withdrawal symptoms - maybe yours would be mentioned. Personally, I haven't had the skin crawling thing - my most distessing symptom has been these very intense and confusing de ja vue episodes - it is like my brain looses track of the current day and time - and these episodes happen as I am trying to wake up from sleep.
People say it works not only on the diarrhea but also other withdrawal symptoms. Even though you're dependent and not addicted, you may find some helpful information on the substance abuse forum. You'll find the Thomas Recipe on the right side of the page. It gives a lot of information on supplements you can take to help withdrawal symptoms. You may want to try some of them depending on your symptoms. There are suggestions on what to take for the fatigue.
I am regretting that decision now!! My withdrawal symptoms seem to be a general unwell feeling, lack of appetite, thirsty alot, raised temperature from the skin (not fever though) but inside I feel so cold, and to add to it now, I have just gone through the entire night without even a minutes sleep (and it isn't through lack of trying!!) and of course, pain....my pain in my back and down my leg has appeared, but i guess thats what the tramadol has been treating. I don't know what to do!
It's been only 13 hours since I last used norco and I'm not feeling as terrible as I thought I would. A few days ago I ordered WITHDRAWAL EASE. Guys, it's amazing. These natural amino acids, vitamins, and herbs are helping with my anxiety, aches and pains, energy... everything. I still have yawning, watery eyes, goosebumps, anxiety, and really foggy, confused mind. BUT I'M NOT DYING! I know the worst has yet to come and I'm expecting to get very little sleep tonight.
If only I could keep the symptons of withdrawal in a pocket...so that I never forget how awful it feels. The pain in my all my muscles feel like tight rubber bands that are going to snap in any minute. The stomach cramps and chills/sweats, etc. Now comes the hard part..the mental acceptance..I'm very depressed right now...and just keep reading these pages of testimony to keep me going...to keep me sane. I tried to contact NA in Bergen County New Jersey...
Welcome Everyone!
Severity of withdrawal can be estimated by considering that each 100 mg tramadol oral (hx daily use) will be roughly equivalent of 10 mg morphine (IV daily use) in severity of withdrawal symptoms. Differences are that standard opiate withdrawal seems to cause more physical illness (vomitting, diarhea, bone pain etc.) Tramadol withdrawall seems to cause significantly more anxiety and emotional distress.
Hello Everyone! Well done! Well Played! Welcome to a New Thread!
but I cant because there is absolutely no reason to go through the agony of withdrawal.. trust me I have Had my share of Withdrawals (heroin, methadone ,oxy's etc... .Its a thing caclled "TAPERING" buprenex is wonderful virtually painless, the only thing is if you dont have insurance,it can be quite expensive.. but probablly nothing compared to what most of you were spending on your daily habit, which is all it is..
Also, babies born to mothers who have used this drug during the last 3 months of pregnancy may infrequently develop withdrawal symptoms such as feeding/breathing difficulties, seizures, muscle stiffness, or constant crying. If you notice any of these symptoms in your newborn, tell the doctor promptly. http://cymbaltasurvivors.com/index.php?topic=32.0 It is impossible to mess with nor-epinephrine without messing the the adrenal glands.
I have been off vanlafaxine for over a month now and I don’t seem to be experiencing any withdrawal symptoms except for irregular sleeping habits and decreased ability to concentrate. My eating habits are poor, with my first meal being around 4 pm, and my last meal being around 9 pm. Hygiene is good, no sexual activity, no allergies. I am a smoker, and I have been taking caffeine pills 200mg q4h to help for studying and staying awake.
Have you tried Celebrex instead of the other anti-inflammatories? Since Celebrex is a Cox2 not a Cox1 and 2 it doesn't ruin your stomach like the others. But, I still get some stomach pain and I take a Zantac with it every time and for a couple weeks after getting off of it. Maybe you can try something like Neurontin or Lamictal? I don't know if this would help since it is for nerve pain. It helped my back pain some but not when it was severe. I hope you get better soon.
The symptoms and clinical management of alcohol, barbiturate and benzodiazepine withdrawal syndromes are discussed in this article. People who suffer alcohol withdrawal should be admitted to hospital if they have medical or surgical complications or severe symptoms; supportive care and pharmacotherapy, especially diazepam loading, are the essential components of treatment. Barbiturate withdrawal requires pharmacotherapy and admission to hospital for patients who have taken more than 0.
Your dose of the hydromorphone is relatively low - especially since you say some days you only need to take one tablet. At one point (after shoulder replacement surgery) I was on 8mg every 4 hours! There's still a chance of w/d symptoms since you've been on the medication for a couple of years, even at a low dose - every person is different as to how their body reacts when a medication is stopped.
I've tried vitamins, supplements (valerian, passion flower, l-theanine, gaba, magnesium, iron, omega 3, zinc), i'm even taking ativan (as needed) even though i am fully aware of its side effects, the risk of becoming addicted, withdrawal symptoms, etc. anyone there with a similar experience? Anyone who can help ? I'd really appreciate your input. thank you.
I was on fluxotine (I think it was called ) for a year five yeats ago, and it worked and I'm glad I took it during that period of my life as I needed something, i tapered off the drug and got no withdrawal symptoms. My doctor does not prescribe this one any more as he says the amphetamine-like side effects are too strong.
You've been on a low dose but for quite a long time. I'm not familiar enough with the withdrawal symptoms to offer much help with that. You don't have an addiction problem, but you might read through some posts at Med Help's Addiction-Substance Abuse forum. There's lots of detox info there and apparently tramadol is pretty difficult to discontinue suddenly. Again, you are not an addict, but withdrawal is still the same thing whether a medication has been abused or used as prescribed.
I haven't been the same since. And although the withdrawal symptoms lessened, they have never truly gone away. The intense, restless feelings I experienced in my arms and legs continue to this day at a lesser intensity. But it's bad enough to prevent me from sleeping at night. I thought it was Restless Leg Syndrome, but neither Requip nor Mirapex do anything for it. What does work is more Narcotics, but I don't want to take them anymore.
She put me on celebrex.....and told me no more refills on pain pills which is good. I am sorry I am rambling. First time I have had anyone to talk to about this. I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful children. I work full time and have a wonderful career. I can't bare to loose any of that. I guess I need some advice, reassuring, anything? Has anyone been on celebrex? I commmend everyone that has went through this.....everyone that I have read about on here is amazing.
With 2 small children and owning my own real estate company, I had to take something to make me feel better and take away the pain. My doctor tried celebrex, he tried naproxen and tons of other medications until he gave me a Rx of Vicoden. It worked. I felt better, had energy, no pain, happy, functioned and felt human like a young mother (and wife) should. So month after month, I kept getting my medication refilled.
They give me an rx for hydrocodne 10/325 (which I think I'm learning now is the highest dose?) So, I was taking about 4 of those a day, plus celebrex, which I stopped when I realized that was making me feel worse if I took it more than 3 days in a row. I got an orthopedic dr, he requested a hip/pelvic MRI and some nerve conductivity tests.
anyway i have really noticed as i get lower these last few doses that going through withdrawal symptoms such as feeling achy everywhere and i am having so much trouble with sleeping now matter how many herbal stuff i take for sleep....got he sweats and chills off and on too....does anyone know roughly how long this will go on for? its been only 3 days at this amount...any advice of herbal things that will help me get through this would be great....especially the achiness..
I stopped after 10 days and went through what I called a mini withdrawal. Same symptoms, less intense and for a shorter time, but still there. Personally, I wouldn't use it to wean from another opiate. You will probably end up going through withdrawal anyway when you stop taking the Ultram, and it may even be worse than Vicodin withdrawal; I've heard some people say it's much worse. When I was going through my Ultram withdrawal, my dr. gave me Valium and Ambien to help me through.
After almost a year of being off the drug, she is experiencing weakness, jittery feelings, shaking of her hands, memory lapses, and depression. Could these still be withdrawal symptoms after this length of time off the drug? She has taken some kind of depressant/anti depressant for at least the last 30 years. Could these have done permanent damage to her brain functions thereby resulting in her present symptoms? She has had a battery of tests(mri, etc) and nothing else has been found.
Also, since I don't take it every day, I've never experienced any withdrawal symptoms on days that I don't take it.
