Clonidine controlled substance

Common Questions and Answers about Clonidine controlled substance


Avatar_n_tn I am an alcoholic. I was treated with upwards of 150mg of Oxycodone (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> release and immediate release)after multiple surgeries, all while on Clonazepam 3mg daily (ten years) and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidinean> Patch for blood pressure. For about a year, I am down to maximum of 30mg Oxycodone a day but escalated my Clonazepam in the last six (up to 10mg day, occassionally), have had epan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>odic alcohol relapses (last one three days ago 400mg Vodka). Started Dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ulfuram today.
Avatar_n_tn Shifting focus here, the DEa maintains a strict schedule of controlled substances and spends lord knows how much money (tax dollars...) every year to enforce regulation and monitoring of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>tribution, from top to bottom (doctors to pharmacies and everything in-between) not to mention the money invested for research and testing. add all of than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> up and do the math, the conclusion an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> pretty obvious..
Avatar_f_tn The dr that stepped in for mine said that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce dept will help me with medications for withdrawls mentally and phan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ically.

228936_tn?1249097848 He was a respected doc in subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce abuse and detox and had some new ideas.

Avatar_f_tn I would pop one every now and then if I felt jittery. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce and there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> NO ran style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>k for addicton to than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> medication (<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>clonidine</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>).

Avatar_f_tn Well, if you're on Methadone because you were addicted to opiates then you know what to expect. There an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a medication that made getting off Methadone easier for me. It's called an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidinean>. It's an anti-hypertension drug. It keeps your adrenaline from getting too high and causing that "I feel like I'm gonna turn inside out" feeling. It's not a controlled substance and it's not addictive. ask your doctor. Read up on it.
Avatar_f_tn I don't want everytime something goes man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>sing from the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce (which happens a LOT and it ain't me!) cabinet every one looks at me! I'm determined to taper down to zero by October 3rd. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> that too fast? I have a 3 day weekend then and I figure it be a good time to go to zero.
Avatar_m_tn altho i do think there are pharmacies in canada/overseas where u can get it without one as it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce,,,<sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>clonidine</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a touchy drug and i think u need to be monitored while on it due to blood pressure and stuff...hypotension/a drop in blood pressure can be fatal...
Avatar_f_tn Two years ago I went through that with Ultram. The docs and pharmacan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ts treat like a highly <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce, but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>n't labeled that by the FDa yet, it should be. I will never forget what I went through, everything you are now...BUT I got through it and YOU WILL TOO! If just sitting there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> what you wannt to do, then so be it. Before you know it, 72 hrs will be one week, and then two weeks ect. If you fall, get up and do it again.
Avatar_n_tn skb knew it was addictive when it was introduced but did not want it classifird as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce because doctors would hesitate to prescribe it. at 85 dollars for 2 and a half mls or half of a teaspoon, that means a lot of money. many people became addicted and skb finally classified it as a controlled substance after it had been on the market over two years. i also dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>covered that it was several times more potent than morphine. i feel for anyone who an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> addicted to stadol.
Avatar_n_tn I was kind of dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>appointed that there was nothing else that would ease my withdrawals except for another <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> Subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce. However, I made the first step in asking for help and I am going to have to trust what he says. He said that the other option would be to taper. I kinda laughed and said that I tried that several times before and it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>n't going to work. Since I took 10 10mg of vicodin yesterday. I am going to taper the rest of the week. Today ONLY 3 and so on...
439522_tn?1214954789 Tramadol does work in similiar ways to narcotic pain medication. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce. But It can be habit forming and cause withdrawls. and it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> true some believe it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> harder to get off of than narcotics themselves. But of course stopping a medication or experiencing actual withdrawls can feel more intense to one person than the other.
Avatar_n_tn Tramadol an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a pain reliever, as I desperately need something for the pain, but an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not an opiod or a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce. Stronger than tylenol or any other otc med, but by prescription. The an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidinean> helps you sleep at night, and it flushes out your system (makes me pee alot!!!) and lowers your immune to all the opiods. and I got valium for the anxiety of detoxing. (I have always suffered from anxiety) I know it may sound like a lot of pills, but it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> helping me SO MUCH.
Avatar_n_tn Congrats Serge! Been following your posts. Thomas: Someday, I proman style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>e, you will be famous with your recipe. You HaVE to write that book pronto! Millions of people need your recipe. I told you that you were infamous! Look how many people have already used "Thomas Recipe", and are doing it! You're the best!
1684282_tn?1410976195 They also forget to use their independent thinking and ability to look up information for themselves. They assume that if the medication an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce (and it very well should be as we will dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>cuss), then it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not an opiate, it an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> not addictive and they can just give it like candy without any consequence to their patient.
222369_tn?1274478235 The seroquel an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a dopamine inhibitor - - most of us addicts are dopamine deficient........I tried to take the seroquel as directed and quit after 3 days - - - For that one I would prefer to have the affliction as opposed to the therapy. I am using trazadone now for sleep - - its along the line of benadryl - - its an antihystamine that makes you drowsy - - - working just fine....
Avatar_f_tn I haven't taken them, but researched Puridone. There really an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>n't anything in it you can't buy OTC.. For much cheaper. ( it's like 400$ or more). However, if you aren't taking your vitamins good, then a one ounce once a day drink of Puridone may help, but honestly, that's just convenience. They state your body will absorb than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> better on their website, but those statements are not FDa approved, and their "trials" weren't controlled.

Avatar_n_tn These withdrawals will last about a week. I recommend he go see a subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce abuse specialan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t or check himself into a methadone clinic. There are special medications such as suboxone and methadone that will help him taper off the drug with minimal withdrawal symptoms. also, he's been doing than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> for 2 years which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a long time. These drugs are mind altering and even after the withdrawals he will crave the drug. He will have to go to an outpatient program to totally beat than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> addiction.
Avatar_m_tn But, taking amphetamines during WD seems like a bad idea as it could increase dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>comfort.

Or have any advice? Thank you! Ps I know the sound advice an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> see a Dr., do than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> in a controlled setting, stay away from mixing meds etc.
544292_tn?1268886268 I stick with it because I was tired of going to my doctor, hat in hand, and asking him to increase my daily dose of the drug. I stick with it because I no longer desire to be under the control of a subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce that wanted more than I had to give, while returning less and less to me. ETC. ETC. ETC." Gah! Threw all my forks away too Fred. Tramadol an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a terrible drug. Thank you so much for your kind message for me! It helps :D and yes, pain in places I never have had paiin before.
1181385_tn?1264046275 ( in colorado that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a felony- obtaining a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce by fraud and deceit) and also my relationship with my wife an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> going to hell in a hand basket!!! What I would like an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> some feedback on what I may use for the withdraw aches and pain and those long nights that seem to last forever. I plan to cold turkey from a 15 - 20 percs a day habit. Every time I try to taper down I fail big time. I tried to cold turkey 3 weeks ago and I was on my 3rd day. I got weak and gave in.
1926359_tn?1331591739 You do need to take care of the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidinean>-it's dangerous just to stop it. It's not a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce or anything so any doc should be able to prescribe it. The massage was amazing as always. She reminded me that because of the trauma our bodies go through during detox we tend to hold ourselves tight to ride that freaky rollercoaster. She really helped me to ground my energy and worked out the tennan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> balls in my calves and shoulders. I was so relaxed I couldn't get my clothes back on...
8271896_tn?1403539357 Just curious why you would suggest that channah go to addiction/subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce abuse forum? Please as we all know , that we that are on pain management, get treated bad enough without being treated like that on than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> site. Hope you did not mean it that away. We are dependent on our meds, cause chronic pain stinks, but it also stinks knowing you always have to take a pill to feel like living.
6815927_tn?1395515025 I've heard than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> can be tough but it may be the lesser of evils?

Avatar_n_tn The recommendation on scheduling an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> binding only to the extent that if HHS recommends that the subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce not be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span>, the DEa may not control the subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce(good news at last). Once the DEa has received the scientific and medical evaluation from HHS, the adminan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>trator will evaluate all available data and make a final decan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>ion whether to propose that a drug or other substance be controlled and into which schedule it should be placed.
Avatar_n_tn at any given time, states can request pharmacies to tell if they see <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>controlled</span> subst<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nce prescribed often to a patient. They can not give patient info but can give Dr's name after filing proper papers of release. Most states don't waste the time unless they are known for street sales. You can do than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> anonymous by phone. Just hit me, PM an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> pain mngmnt. Dah! anyway, same response applies. Call State board for their ruling on drugs.
322138_tn?1306246734 If not, you might dan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>cuss <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>clonidine</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> as a possibility to help ween you off the codeine. <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>clonidine</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> will help with withdrawal and can very safely overlap when you start Wellbutrin. I personally take ritalin, Wellbutrin, an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidinean> and on rare occasions, low doses of Xanax.
