My step son (8) is prescribed with Clonidine HCL .2MG. I just found out that his mother is giving her other son (my step-son's brother) half of one of those pills once in a while. They brother is 4 years old, and isn't prescribed this drug, yet she still gives it to him when "I want a little peace and quiet"....... Isn't that a bad thing? First off giving a 4 year old prescription drugs that isn't meant for him.....and secondly using it simply because SHE wants some peace and quiet?

Good Morning, Lisabet M.D. (no-one has to know it stands for mangy dog). Thanks for your thoughts for my friend! He has improved since my Saturday visit; not requiring dialysis Sunday or yesterday, as his kidneys and liver have STARTED to function again. WHEW!! I definately didn't post his story as a scare tactic(we have enough things to stress about don't we), more just the proverbial reality check. As far as your own recovery, you are in it.

There I sat for about an hour, getting my vitals checked, and walking out with a Clonidine 0.2mg inside me and a script for another 3 day supply of the Clonidine, to use 3 times a day as needed. I took them religiously. I did not mess around with this "Thomas Recipe." All I took was the clonidine. Perhaps I should have added some Immodium, but I toughed it out. The most life threatening thing to me was the Clonidine.
I tried going cold turkey from the fentanyl and just using the clonidine......no f-----g way!!! For all of you who have experienced the withdrawals from fentanyl, you know what I'm talking about. For me, the only way to get off of this drug is to step down slowly, in my case, it'll take almost two weeks, and use clonidine.....it stops the "tweeking" - the constant need for movement - inability to sleep.....you all know what I'm talking about. Also......
You've got what amounts to becoming addicted to coffee for its caffeine. PHENYLEPHRINE HCL is so mild (that's why it's over the counter) that, with a little will power, mild exercise and, say, a good strong cup of coffee to give you that lift you'll miss, you should be able to get off the spray pretty easily. The drug is so mild, your addiction is mostly psychological. Stop using it, take regular walks for a few days, and drink a cup of strong coffee if you feel you need a little lift.
Oxycontin.- While awaiting the scan results I was given oxycontin for pain relief, this seemed to do the trick for 2 weeks, 10mg 2x a day, then things hurt again so up the dose went 20mg 2x a day, then 40mg 2x a day, then 80mg 2x a day and up to 120mg 2x a day, recognise the scenereo anyone??..
please try to quit your habit, if not for yourself, for your precious children. you can do it for the right reason later down the line.
each and every one of you for being here and for saving my life, i have 3 children whom im sure are very grateful to you all as well :) Okay, now for my comment....I agree with some of you how you say it depends on the persons state of mind to determine which route is best for them. For me personally, methadone is the only thing that helps me. I took the 9 day Detox route, the detox i chose used methadone to help with the withdrawel symptoms.
Please hang in there not only for yourself but for your wife and children. The time to detox will come. For now use what pinkillers God has given us. You have nothing to be ashamed of. God Bless you and I'll keep you in my prayers.
Now I'm trying to get off hrdrocodone..All for pain..Best of luck..And it will get better. This is a great place for help..
