I desperately want my life back and want to stop than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> drug. The side effects of stopping are almost unbearable and I'm scared even though I'm tapering. I've been down to 37.5 MG for about 6 months now. Tomorrow I start taking splitting the pill in half and taking half in the morning, half at night. after a week it will be only half a day, until I cut it out altogether.

Avatar f tn Typical advice an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> no on than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> one. Tramadol an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> only not an opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te on paper. That's why they can give it like candy. it has an an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexoran> like anti depressant in it too. So it can be lethal to get off high doses. In other words don't play with Tramadol it's dangerous. Like I said than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> typical advice. I have not tried it personally. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Hello.. My name an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> Ryan and I am a opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te addict. I never though that i would ever hear myself say that, but deep down inside I know its true. It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> taking alot of self-will to post than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> comment, and truly I just want to live a normal healthy life without opiates. I became addicted to opiates through recreational use, and slowly I began to take more and more, untill I never knew when "enough was enough." The opiate I always turn to are percocet, it doesnt matter the strength.

Avatar n tn Hi, I will like to find out if someone out there have or heard of my withdrawals proccess.

Do any of you think than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a good idea, or shall I take a higher dose? Switch drug for example? and if I decide to take a higher dose,I would build a tolerance for it eventually and reach the same point I' m in right now? Do drugs help after all?
Avatar f tn quick question, i am trying to get myself off opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te, which no one except my husband knows about.I went to my md and told them about how bad my anxiety and depression an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>, so they gave me a rx for an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexoran> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xran>, which ended up being to $$ for me, so i contacted my ins. co. and they gave me a lan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t of generic anti depressants that were avail to me and I told my dr the lan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t so they wrote me a script for celexa. From what ive read its only an anti depressant not both antianxiety and anti depressant.

I got pregnant over a year ago. Upon the arrival of the baby, there was so much going on that he didn't have the energy for and it began to irritate him. He decided to start abusing oxycontins. I found out about than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> and of course things got heated. He did go through detox and was placed on suboxone (opiate blocker).

Avatar m tn I have had an a problem with opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te addiction, mainly norco and oxy for that last year and half. I have also had problems with depression and anxiety for the as long as I can remember. If you have the same an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>sues, you probably can understand how the two go hand in hand. I am currently on Depakote ER and Lorezampam for my depression/anxiety. For the past two months I have been trying to quit opiates c/t, mainly because my access to them has been cut off for the most part.
2107676 tn?1388977459 My doctor wants to start me on Cymbalta. I have been on <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> for over 6 years. I had a horrible time coming off of the Lyrica. I swear it was as bad as any opiate withdrawal. I still feel sick, depressed, and really man style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>erable. Now I am supposed to start the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexoran> taper. (Oh, I chose to do them separate). I am on 150mg. The taper an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> 75mg for 1 week, then 37.5mg for a week, then stop and start the Cymbalta.
Avatar n tn Paxil began losing effectiveness and after seven years, doctors tried new medications like Lexapro which was less helpful. Finally I began <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, then <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xran>, then increasing the dose last year. Though depression bleeds through occassionally, (feels more like the blues than a dark suicidal hole), I think I'm doing very well on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexoran> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xran> 150 mg. But I can not help but wonder .... Will I eventually need 225mg? What will it take after that?
5203459 tn?1373371504 I've read that you cannot take than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> if you are on a SSRI, but <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>xran> an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> considered a SNRI.

768044 tn?1294227036 Hi there, I noticed the post on <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> withdrawal that has almost 200 posts! It sure an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> a popular topic... probably because an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexoran> withdrawal can be such nasty business!! Don't get me wrong... I have nothing against the medication, in fact, I credit it for saving my life!! But... still, the withdrawal symptoms are some of the worst things I've ever experienced! anyway...
452063 tn?1324078516 It takes so long to find out if these things are going to help or just make things worse. I was taking <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> CR and I'm not even sure it as doing anything. I didn't notice a change when I weaned myself off but my reason for depression was resolved.I definatly need one that lifts me up and doesn't make me feel tired and empty.
Avatar f tn Once back on track (about 8 months) I tried to come off of the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexoran> and had horrible side effects that my doctor said was more proof that I was still depressed and needed to take more <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. Not knowing any better I continued to take the <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> and have my dose increased everytime the headaches (I would get severe headaches about every 6 months) would start. But with that came a whole new round of sideffects.

Avatar f tn You are absolutely right! I have wd ct off Fentanyl (strongest opiate there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>) and Tramadol than style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> month. With Tramadol, I experienced mild opiate wd and wicked "an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effexoran>" wd! anyone on, or that an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> planning on taking Tramadol needs to RUN aWaY FROM IT!!!

Avatar n tn It an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> combined with an SNRI antidepressant which an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> very similar to <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'>effexor</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. The theory an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan> that combining an antidepressant with an opi<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te will enhance the painkilling properties of the opiate so that a "milder" opiate can be used.
