Clonidine snort

Common Questions and Answers about Clonidine snort

catapres

ive been using drugs for 11 yrs. i use heroin and roxycontin and i always snort it up the same nostril. ive been to rehab dozens of times and the withdrawl was too bad long term. im weening down by a lot and then going to take subutex and clonidine for withdrawl. my problem is that i have to either snort the drug or shoot it and im scared of shooting cause i dont want to overdose. when i snorted my small dose this morning my whole head started to shake and i got very dizzy.
I'm just thinking to myself that I used to take a few vics during the day, snort a lot of coke during the afternoon after work and came down with a couple of Klonipin and an Ambien at bed, anantihistamine for good measure. Christ, no wonder I barely ever made it to work on time and almost fell asleep at the wheel every damn morning. And I was on Zoloft as well. Damn I'm lucky and I know it.
You really should tell someone, I know how hard and embarassing it is, but having that support can make all the difference in the world. Everything besides the clonidine can be bought at the store, clonidine is a blood pressure medication that helps during opiate w/d's. The good news is your habit isnt too excessive so hopefully your w/d's dont last too terribly long. Let us know how things go, its good that youve recognized the problem and are actively pursuing sobriety.
Used and abused bout every drug and everyway u can use a drug. Swallow, shoot, snort. I hate my addicted brain. Wel after being on coke for years, went to final rehad and met actually he man i just broke up with, we were together seven yrs. He introduced me to oxycontin and methadone. From the beginning i used 80mg oxy's and took 20, then 30mg, then u know how it go, Well we for a certain reason wanted to stop. I knew enof bout opiate wd to know that I was not gonna last through methadone wd.
but the whole oxy epidemic started when users figured out that if you suck off the coating on the pill, and cushed up the powder, you could shoot, snort, smoke, or take orally the powder and get an instant high dose amount of pure oxycodone, whereas other oxycodone products like percocet contain only 5mgs of oxyocdone and then 325mgs of tylenol, liniting the amount of abuse possible. so opiate abusers found a high that extremely strong, resembles heroin in every way.
I'm sick of living like this, I'm tired of waking up every day and having to snort one just to get up out of the bed. And if I dont have one then I cant even go thru a day without laying around looking for one to make me just feel normal. So I'm completely fed up with it and I dont want to take any more, I want my life back before drugs. So I took my last one and got rid of the rest so I wouldnt pick them back up.
First of all DO NOT SNORT THEM! The pills contain a non absorbable "filler" which will remain in your lungs and ten-fifteen years down the line you may develop irresverible lung disease. No different from asbestos disease. You may end up on a breathing machine unable to walk half a block. Go cold turkey. You will feel like hell for about a month. Aches and pains mostly, and inability to concentrate.
He will be able to write you or even call you in the comfort medications a person needs to detox safely at home. Such as clonidine and something for the anxiety like Valium or Librium and definitely some quinine for the leg cramps that are going to drive your crazy and deprive you of sleep, you should load up on Imodium not the generic. You will find it 10 times easier if you get the above meds, otherwise you will be so sick and craving so badly.
He does however have clonidine and gabapentin. I'm afraid to take the clonidine bc my B/P is normally low, but do you know what mg of gabapentin I could take? he has 200mg capsules. I take lots of vitamins and I'm eating really healthy and drinking lots of water. I even did a zumba class at the gym yesterday, although not too good bc I couldn't concentrate or coordinate too well. I didn't sleep good last night, woke up with my mind racing. Thanks again for all your help !
When that stopped working, I began to snort it. Way to go!! Now, I continue to snort it only to feel "normal." I am still thinking that I will be starting Suboxone on Monday. I have wafered on the subject but have concluded that this is the best answer for me at this time. I plan to wean off of it quickly to avoid the same problems, new drug. How are you doing in this stage? Tell me your story if you want. It's nice to have other things in common besides stupidity (j/k).
From Lortabs to Roxys to OC to Heroin. But I always used to just snort and swore to never shoot. It was when I went back to snort some and it didnt do anything and that made me stop and try and kick this, didnt want to shoot up everyday. I do not have any red lines that I can see, nor is it hot or raised or anything. My forearms are yellow running by the vein. I just started shooting so I was not very good at it and missed and pulled out many times befor i would finally land in the vein.
Is there any way you can taper and DO NOT snort the pills. It's going to be pretty vicious withdrawal from what I have read out here. I am just being honest....Can you get more pills and do some kind of taper?......some people say flu like symptoms...well times that by 100.....its doable, and your not going to die, your just gonna feel like it. God Bless, Nauty............
If you are trying to score some pills, or beat a drug test, or get really high, or learn how to snort pills, or whatever, this is not the proper forum. Just a heads up...I could care less if you're using or not, but keep in mind what this forum is designed for.... Getting clean and getting off of drugs! Good luck, hopefully you found the answer to your questions.
I am gonna cut a mg or 2 tommorrow since I am going back to work. I did just take a half of a clonidine I hope that helps with the jumpiness.. Its been 6 hours since my last dose of Sub. I have taken the same amount today as yesterday. Maybe it is some of the WD peeking through since I am on such a low dose. I am kinda sweaty and restless. I don't know if its the Sub itself or WD.. strange.. I also really wanted to rip into that young girl below posting about taking vicodin..
I don't really feel like I want to snort any drugs...but I do really wanna feel better. Also...I gained about 65 pounds over the past few years...so maybe the sweating is because my metabolism is cranking back up??? I'm not eating much...don't want to...but i'm trying to be healthy and at least eat one or two really good meals a day...I have to go back to work soon and I Bartend and Wait Tables so I'm very active...just not sure If i'll be able to make it thru the night without colapsing...
Do you snort pills with all that tylenol?
Thing is I've become very addicted and do probably 4 a day and I snort them. I do suffer from incredible back pain because of the back problems but I do the oxys to kill pain - and get high. I am determined to get off them but I know I'll still need something for pain. Can methadone maintenance allow me to get off Oxys AND provide pain relief? Can subs do the same thing or is meth the better option for someone like me.
I have been doing accupuncture, yoga, meditation for the past few months, in preparation for getting off the narcotics. Currently, I take 3 tablets in each 24 hours, 30 mg each, extended release. I do not snort or inject them - just take them orally as prescribed. I know that I am physically dependent on Oxy, and am really scared about the withdrawal period.
i use to snort over 300mg a day of oxycontin (til i switched to heroin anyway). so i have withdrew from oxycontin many times..oxy is the worst detox iv been through (except for methodone). oxy is a solid 20 to 30 days of withdrawal so i would reccomend a slow taper instead of goin c/t. the only thing that i can think of to ease withdrawals is warm baths and valium for the anxiety and leg cramps. also bentyl for stomach cramping and clonidine for blood pressure.
The only thing I would add to this list is a blood pressure drug named clonidine. It effectively lowers the blood pressure and lessens many of the withdrawal symptoms. Most any doctor will prescribe it if you’re honest as to why you need it. Discuss dosages and frequency with your doctor. Thomas Recipe: 1. Valium (or another benzodiazepine such as Klonopin, Librium, Ativan or Xanax). Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form.
w/d seem to be the same but some bounce back quicker. I used the methedone for 12yrs and started to snort with adderral and took a clonazepam at night before the methedone was the hydro/oxy (pain issues then) I went c/t from it all. I went threw many stages for a while due to age ??????and the benzo. Sweetness seemed to bounch back fine considering all her other issues. There is someone else that had a hard ride like me. So we are all differnt but the same too!!!!
I take about 40 - 60 mg a day and snort it. I'm determined to get off these things. Pills killed my mom 3 years ago and she was only 47. I never thought I'd get addicted to pills especially since I have two very special reasons not to - I have two babies, a 9 month old and a 22 month old. I started taking perc to give myself some energy after my youngest was born. The baby was VERY colicky and I had no help so I figured it wouldn't hurt to take percs to give me a boost. Boy was I wrong!!
Ask him to prescribe clonidine, (not klonopin), and ativan. These will help with sleep, RLS and anxiety. These are best to try before formal detox and drugs like Suboxone. I had to do formal detox because I tried everything else, including alcohol to get off and nothing worked for me. Keep in mind that when you try… make it a good one! Have some time off of work if you can… maybe a four day weekend or more.
I am new to the forum, but have been reading through the posts for several weeks now. I have a problem with pills and am trying to stop. I don't take them I snort them. A friend of mine got me started on it about 8 months ago. After a few months of just doing it here and there I started buying pills myself and the problem just got worse from there. I am mostly snorting vics and perks about 4 to 6 a day.
I guess sub is not a good plan for you if you snort it...that is a new one on me but we are all addicts and I dont think any of us are proud of what we have done in the past...I am not...I am proud that i did something about it and sounds like you have want to get on track again....
I really need some support. I have clonidine and trazodone. Some 600 mg Tylenol.. But nothing for the rls. Someone please give me some support, I'm 23 and in pretty good shape but feel like crying like a little baby... I'm loosing my hold. Please anyone!
I frequently will crush up @ least one of the pills and snort it so that it hits me right away as I am paralyzed w/ pain when I wake. I can barely get from my bed to the couch. Let alone walk my big puppy that I'm afraid will pull me and further injure my weak frame. I never used to crush up the pills. Another wonderful thing MY family taught me to do as they are ALL drug abusers. My Xanax for my anxiety doesn't even seem to help anymore. I'm crying all the time.
That's when it really turned bad for us, I didn't want to chew or take percs or tabs anymore, but only SNORT SNORT SNORT. So now I come to the time where I want to stop again, like I did before, but I know the habit I have now is way more than I had before. Which is where all this fear and doubt comes from.
1st welcome&congrats on deciding2quit&good for him going 2treatment.DONT DONT DONT SUBOXINE Thats a Huge mistake.That is harder2get off of,not for short term use.Look at some posts here about it and others will b here to help u know more about that.I want to respond2the comment of how"you cant snort a whole30thats crazy"well what ur doing all together is crazy whether u consume them but snorting them in smaller amounts over a frew hours.
Hi, I am looking to get as much info so that I can start to detox tomorrow. I am a SAHM and have a baby at home with me and also have other children to take care of. I have been on Vicodin for 4 years and have worked my way up to 6 to 8 10/660 pills a day. My tolerance is very high and they don't work like they used to. I have fibro and constant migraines and the medication used to work but now it doesn't, its more I take it to take the "edge" off.
