Very True..Caffeine and Sugar also can cause Paws to kick in but for you that will be down the line a bit..I got headaches for awhile after I had almost a month in..I could only take the BPmed at night and only for about a couple of weeks. Remember Teri, the Brain is trying to balance out and who knows how wild those Transmitters or Chems etc, are going right now. I accepted the Headaches as part of the Healing..They did not last long at all..But I know I am still trying to balance out.HA!
I checked myself out and called my PCP.That's when I found this board.Was taking barbs and clonidine and withdrawing from years of abuse.It just happened to be methadone I was on.My problem,I have found out in the past two days isn't using,Its been a way of life since I was 16.I'm 44 now.My body and mind need a life.I am very sorry for any of my ramblings here in the past week but it's been my only crutch.
Too better help you give me advice I do not have high blood pressure (actually my blood pressure is great). I am 38 y.o. I am 5'6 and 180 lbs. I currently take metformin 500 mg 2x a day for diabetes. My blood sugar is under control. Please respond if you can advise me on the use of clonide and if there is also another med to use in addition to the withdrawal.
If a person develops the signs of diabetes (as happenned to one person I knew) a specific regimented diet can stop this from happenning. That's why its good to keep track of it. Limiting sugar and charbohydrate intake in the meantime and in general though are helpful at preventing this from happenning.
For the last 4 years I’ve been using nutrition—Intravenous and oral—to rebuild and repair the biochemistry pathways in the body and mind. Over four years experience —this includes heroin, and all other street drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications--has taught me that natural detox works 100 times better than detox formulated and predicated by the use of other mind altering chemicals.
i wound up in a hospital because i threw 250 times a day and started throwing up blood. i got dehydrated. my blood pressure and blood sugar shot up out of control. coming off of this is far worse than the patches and they sucked. i am on my 3rd day now and slowly getting better. it is the hardest thing i have ever done. i feel for all of you and i blame dr's because instead of figuring out what was wrong with me they just shelled out pain meds. you have got to find a dr that wants to help you.
) And the headaches are daily and change from the back of my head to my temples to the top of my head. I'm taking BP meds (Lotensin, Inderal LA, and Clonidine) and Tegretol (200 mg, QID), and Vicodin ES, PRN for these problems. I was told there was nothing else they could do, just wait for it to go away. I can't believe there isn't any way of relieving the headaches and being lightheaded. Because of this, I'm on temporary disability from my job and I can't function.
Also, being bipolar and having diabetes will be trouble. Stress in itself causes your blood sugar to rise. Personally I have trouble eating both ways. If I am high anxiety I can't eat. Then when the anxiety goes away I eat too much. I also have a lot of issues with food, too much to go into here. I don't know if it the BP or something else.
This type of medication is a good choice if hot flashes, irritability, or mood swings are your only perimenopausal symptom. Clonidine, a high blood pressure medication, can reduce the number and severity of hot flashes by lowering blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure is safe for some women and not for others. This type of medication is a good choice if hot flashes are your only perimenopausal symptom, especially if you have high blood pressure.
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
Your best bet is to try cold turkey again and talk to your doctor about Clonidine which is a blood pressure med that can also be used for opiate and smoking w/d. I normally take xanax at night only, but was forced to take it during the day to deal with the anxiety. I am at 90days today and haven't needed xanax during the day since around day 45. If you try again, you just have to hang in there. I know it's scary.

Her other meds are Accupril and clonidine for blood pressures; glucophage for blood sugar and Prevacid. Clonidine is new as of Dec03. In Dec, patient was driving and alert. Now facing assist. living.

The best thing you can do is take good care of yourself, eat healthy food, stay hydrated, keep active and busy. Stay away from sugar, soda, and simple carbs. Do not consume caffeine at least 6 hours prior to bedtime. Take a look at my blogs about options for detox and recovery.

Look especially into the blog and the info on Naltrexone therapy after getting clean.

Thephoenix75, i have used gabepentin and clonidine and i am currently on clonidine and it does help so I would recommend it I am NOT a doctor so talk to your pcp and see what she says... gabepentin is also good to use for wd. I have Backpain coming from a car accident that occurred 14 years ago and i am on fentanyl 100 mcg q 48 hrs and percocet 10/325 8 daily mdd and also oxymoronphone 40mg 2 daily mdd...

It has been 12 years now....I have been buying black market and am embarresed but proud that i have FINALLY lowered myself to a stable 5mg.....isnt that retarded?? Very hard to detox and stay away from street drugs!

Thomas's recipe can help get you off! hell, even darvon can help get you off! time clean is the most valuable thing you can get right now. **** the deepression...
I was using alot more than you and I finally on day 8 got help from my doctor.He phoned me in 30 Clonidine and 30 Phenobarbital.It took another 8 days until I started feeling human.Like you I am a mr.mom.My wife works at a hospital and I am a musician so I am the one who is at home with our daughter.You will be able to care for your child.Clonidine does make you weak but the Thomas recipe will fix that.Try and get some Clonidine pills.They are cheap where the patches are not.

When I can't eat, I can manage a bagel, yogurt and tea with milk and a lot of sugar. If you can, try to get some protein in. A boiled egg with toast is usually easy and bland enough but it has some nutrition in it. Same thing with a baked potato or better yet, a baked sweet potato. But where you're at right now, fluids are the most important. Water is good, but if you can get Gatorade or Vitamin water, it would be better for you.
(who had delivered my 16 and 20 yr old children) so I was loocked in and he gave me Clonidine which helps to lower blood pressure and helps with several symptoms. Then I got some other great advice from people on this forum. Look at the Health pages at top right of home page. You have to have Immodium (not just for the implied reason) it also acts as an opiate without getting to your neuro receptors. I wanted to respond tonight because it is late and Labor Day so it is a little slow.
then when i try to go to sleep i for some reason black out and i feel like my body is numb...... i hate it and it scares me.... my blood pressure goes down and my pulse goes down when this happens...... ive seen dr.s and they dont know what is wrong.... medicine only makes it worse.......
I have diarreah, shaking, much of the pain I was taking them for (fibromyalgia, and back spasms) I am a diabetic and my blood levels are all up and down. My question is ........would taking ---one of either the soma or dilaudid --- help with the shakes, pain and potty problems, or would that just prolong the withdrawl symptoms? Thanks for any and all answers....Feels kinda funny for a grandmother of 17 to be in this shape, but I guess it takes all kinds to make up this role of an addict.
they said that everything was fine other then a tiny lesion that was benign in her L1...she was discharged and placed on clonidine and zanaflex...the meds have not been working and we were then sent to physical therapy and then to st louis to the movement disorder center after seeing a neuro psychologist here that said its not psychological.
T3) for that. So I went and checked for thyroid, blood sugar, blood pressure. The thyroid was the only thing that was a little off and was adjusted a couple of months ago but it made no real difference. As with some of you, I was extremely active and healthy and then all of a sudden, big appetite and weight gain for no reason, exhaustion, even cleaning the house was a big chore.
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
