i am sorry, i posted on ultram not soma. so let me address soma. yes, it is addictive causing relaxation and euphoria. most combine with opiates to intensify this effect. i have seen many lives ruined by soma. read some prior posts regarding this medication. i can think of several that have posted. sorry for the confusion. my cat woke me at 3am and i am goofy.
I have a call out to the lactaction nurse but she has not called me back yet. Has anyone heard of the pill Soma and should I take this while breastfeeding? I would love to hear opions on this.
See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
The thing is, my w/d's are VERY mild this time around! I was really expecting to go to hell and back with this fentanyl withdrawal but so far it has been 10x easier than my oxy withdrawals I went through last year. Anyone have any theories why my w/d this time around has not been nearly as bad as last time? I have been dependent for about 4 months this time around, using mainly oxy/dilaudid/fentanyl but I havent had oxy in awhile mainly just fentanyl and dilaudid.
Fentanyl is itself a very shot acting medication, but in a patch it becomes a different story. You did not specify whether you were on oral or patch preparation. Once you take the patch off or stop taking the oral Fentanyl, the withdrawals come rather quickly, but they do not tend to last for a very long time. It is still a horribly painful experience, but since it is washed out of the body quickly we are taking days, not weeks. There is really no easy way of detoxing from home.
For two months I've been on Vicodin,Percocet,didlauted, oxymorphone,valium, Flexeril,soma, Ativan, and none of those provided any relief. I was given fentanyl 25 on the patch for a month and really worked for a bit, but still had to take oxycodone 15 mg for break through. Pain still there. Yesterday changed pain management doctors, my last doctor only treated me like a number. New pain doc increased my fentanyl patch to 50.
By the way , I think you will find coming off of Percocet and soma a walk in the park compared to fentanyl. Fentanyl is notorious for being difficult to WD from. Due to the fat stores, it can take a while to clear from the body. Hang in there , it will get better !
Have tramsdermal pain pump. Had 8 yrs of fentanyl 4 micrograms and dilaudid 2mg pumped in me for MV acct. QUESTION is how long will the withdrawal be? I'm on day 8 and only 20 hrs of sleep. With the worst case of RLS ever. Don't crave the drugs, but the racing thoughts r making me delirious. When does it get better. Snots, squirts and vomiting. Went on for 6 days. Liquid N-Quel works wonders also Amodium AD. Godsend.
I have been taking 5-300 of Vicodin about 4 a day and 350 mg of Soma about 4-6 a day for over 2 years. At my last Doctors visit on Friday he decided instead of increasing the amount of Vicodin to put me on a round the clock pain killer Fentynol Patches starting out at 12 mcg just to see if I can handle it because I am allergic to Tramadol and Darvacet and Oxycodone so far no allergic reactions.
It will be like getting almost home and starting the trip at the beginning. Please keep posting and asking questions and telling your story. It helps. All the best.
I just got off my fentanyl patches 2 weeks ago. I still need something for pain and my mom is monitoring my percs- only 3 a day. I am talkiing with my doctor about alternative solutions. I know what you are going through and I really feel for you. Not to scare you but Fentanyl has a very long half life so the withdrawals are longer and stronger than some of the other narcotics. It took me a solid 2 weeks to feel somewhat normal but really the first 5-7 days were the roughest.
I'll give a big ditto to everything Ray just said. I've used the fentanyl patch for nearly 4 years and it's been a lifesaver. You are going through terrible withdrawal, and your doctor never should have allowed you to quit cold turkey. The fault here lies with the doctor in my opinion. There was no reason for you to suffer through withdrawal. Find a different doctor, and get your pain treated. Life is too short to have to live it in chronic pain when you don't have to.
I know my doctor wrote for 150 Soma one month and the Maximun for that is 120 ( 4 x's a day) so the Pharmacy wouldn't fill the last 30 pills until a month later. Some Pharmacies wont even fill the remaining 30 it depends on your location and your pharmacies and doctors and insurance I guess. I used Large bandages all the time to keep them on and It as fine.
I've done both and by far fentanyl is much, MUCH worse. Oxy is no cake walk but if you can handle fentanyl withdrawals you can handle oxy withdrawals. With fent I found the withdrawal period was much longer and more intense. What fentanyl dosage were you on? Why did you doctor refuse to fill?
wants to use methadone to get me off fentanyl pain patches. I was on 100mcg, and I have been cut down every three months. There is still w/d and at this rate it will take me six months to get off of them. I would only have to be on 10mg of methadone twice a day for two weeks and I would be done. The patch would come off before I started it. Big decision for me to make. I lean towards the methadone and then lean toward the taper. I have not been high.
I also have fibromyalga. My son is 22 and gas has been a user and abuser of Oxcotin 30mg soma and valium to what extent who knows. For years first becaususe of friends and then because he has a 3 hurniated disks bad, and this has just come to light. We have been trying to get him to get clean and I have gotten him to go to detox where they have perscribed him Saboxone. While looking for a site to help him I have come across this helpful site.

Anway, I have a severe pain condition and was suffering off pain meds for 3months and went to the ER and got on Norco and had 2 painful surgical procedures, one in oct. and one in Jan. So I have been on Norco since October and the mistake I made was taking at least one dose everyday and got hooked in a month b/c of my very high tolerance with the fentanyl. I am now taking 4 to 6 10/325 Norcos 3 times a day just so I won't go in w/ds. So I have no choice but to detox myself next week.
I believe u r asking about tapering off the soma....soma detox can be dangerous and calls for a slow taper that would be best if ur doctor supervised it.....if u r wanting to quit all of these drugs then that is a different story too....again...a slow taper for the soma...maybe clarify which drug or drugs u want to stop?...the soma seems to be causing u a big problem and that dose can be dangerous..
My biggest compaint is that the first three days or so after I switched I felt awesome, happy for the first time in years, no pain, no fuzzy, no ephoria, just like myself again without anxiety etc. Why did I feel so great and social and happy and then it went away? Was it just the Fentanyl hitting my system that made me feel good or will I ever be able to get it back?
See if your doctor can also write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin is a great help for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose for sleep. Clonidine will regulates blood pressure, creepy-crawly feeling and will make withdrawals easier. Phenergan is good gor nausea. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter for mild sedation, sleep and muscle relaxation.
What is the norm for patches as I am new to them? And it is safe to take the soma and oxy with them all day. I get scared so easy as I have three young children but I need them to control the BT pain I have been getting on almost a daily basis now. Also I put them on my ankle. Is there a better place to put them that they will work better or should I be wearing them longer than 48 hours when I can?
I have been on the fentanyl patches for 5 years and have had the worst side affects of any medications I have ever taken in my life, and believe me I've been on plenty to be a pharmacy tech without the schooling (that's what it seems like if you know what I mean). Anyway I have also been taking opioid pain meds other than the fentanyl for over 10 years.
I wanted to post something on the topic as I am a Chronic Pain patient who has become pregnant. I'm currently in my 23rd week of the pregnancy and am having trouble finding a Pain Management Provider who will see a pregnant woman, or a high-risk OB who will treat Chronic Pain. I have been told that Maternal-Fetal Medicine Speicalists will provide pain relief for pregnant chronic pain patients, however I been told that mine will not.
10mg 6 times a day and Soma 4 times a day...I was on Fentanyl and Morphine also but quit those cold Turkey Saturday...I have Severe Panic Attacks at night..Paralyzing..that turns into Severe Depression during the day...Is this normal for Withdrawal?...I don't mind the physical aspects...it's the Anxiety and Depression that are terrifying me. Even though I've been prescribed these pain pills for a fractured back...I just don't want to be on them.
It has been an interesting 3-4 weeks. I was taking 12-15 10/325 daily, soma, fentanyl 1600 mcg loli'd for break though pain..... and so on. I quit CT and didn't look back, 15 days then another surgery, back to the 10/325's but this time didn't take them as prescribed, I took less. Did my 10 days, then just stopped again. No problems, no WD's after 72 hours. I am out Tuesday on the red eye back to the middle east.
Despite a long-standing restraining order, the ex-husband appeared for the second time that day making threats and beating on his ex-wife. In the presence of all of his children and one nephew, the wife’s boyfriend shot the ex-husband. For several hours, our quiet cul-de-sac was filled with over a dozen police cars, a fire engine, ambulance, and crime scene vehicles. The ex-husband was taken to a hospital and is expected to fully recover soon.

I take up to 6 soma pills, 30 - 45 mg of percocet every 4 hours, and a 100mg fentyinal patch and the pain in my neck, shoulder arm hand and fingers still kill me. I can't work and all I can do is lay down because I can't support my neck. a surgeon suggested i get 2 epidurals for diagnostic purposes. I did get relief with the 2nd one however, my pain is indicative of c5/6 problems but the epidural above that gave me relief. He wants to operate but can't promise me anything.
