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.
If you take Isosorbide Dinitrate without a break and then suddenly stop taking it, you may get WITHDRAWAL symptoms. These may include chest pain, heart attack, or possibly sudden death. Be sure to have a "nitrate-free" period of time each day; this may help prevent dependence and withdrawal problems.
Geometric least squares mean ratios and associated 90% confidence intervals of treatment ratios (test/reference) were calculated using log-transformed pharmacokinetic parameters. Opioid withdrawal symptoms were evaluated throughout the study (questionnaires and pupillometry). Pharmacokinetic data were available for 14 and 13 volunteers on Day –1 and Day 7, respectively.
Both of these can cause addiction, that is, if you continue to take the same dose over some period of time, your body gets adapted to it and unless you take more you will start having withdrawal symptoms. Shortness of breath is one of the worst. Withdrawal can require a very slow tapering off over several months, as addiction to benzodiazapines(sp?) is the worst from a physical dependency point of view.
Of course, this warning assumes no alternate drug therapy in it's place but I'm still concerned that I may develop tachycardia or some other condition upon withdrawal of the Sotalol even though I've switched to the Dronederone. My pharmacist agrees that this is the correct approach but I'm a little afraid at this point to just do it. Has anyone here had this experience? Dronederone is not a beta blocker.
I know the general routine is you wait til you're in withdrawal before starting the bup, and, if I'm not mistaken, inject the next bup ampoule in response to returning withdrawal symptoms, and so on and on. --- aw, common, guys! who would want to miss out on those?
I think that withdrawal is classic, and there is no mistaking it, if you know you are dependant on a med. If in 7 hours you get symptoms and you haven't taken your pain med, chances are it is withdrawal and not anthrax. I actually think that what is going on can be used as a motivator for getting clean, for those for whom that is an option.
I saw another post about atrial fibrillation and stomach gas possible association or connection. I too have the same thing so it may not be all in your head if your suspect this to be the case. Most dr.'s think your crazy or never heard of this when you even suggest it. Thats whats wrong with most dr's atleast in my experience in that they don't think outside the box enough possibly because this is what they learned.
