flexeril

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. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. You are already on Klonopin which will be helpful for sleeplessness and anxiety. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
I have been preparing for this withdrawal from opiates for a month and I have every method downpat. My withdrawal should be WAY worse than it is but its bearable because I tapered and I prepared a lot. Good luck man.
But only your physician can give this advice. Flexeril is not an opiate but if you have been taking it regularly you may experience some withdrawal like symptoms. Your body will "look" for this drug... when it doesn't find it it reacts. According to what I have read it's called the "Discontinuation Syndrome." Symptoms include, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, sweats, insomnia, malaise, and a few others.
Here and there I'd relapsed on heroin or oxy but for the bulk of the 4 years it was strictly the suboxone. I finally put my foot down for the first time and went cold turkey. The following was my experience... The first 3 days were hellish. I spent probably 65 of 72 hours in a bathtub. For some reason it was the only place I could exist. In the first 5 days I was comletely out of energy. I always had trouble moving, and it was always in slow-motion.
I think we all agree that opiate withdrawal is one of the most deblitating physical/mental processes, an inevitable readjustment that can (uh, and probably WILL) fill your life with unfathomable anguish and depression and misery. But, like everyone says, it goes away.

I have been prescribed Flexeril for over a year, as a muscle relaxant for long term back and neck pain... I was told it was a 'safe' drug, and not to worry about it - it was not addicting. Now, after taking it for this long, I have re-read the patient information packet, and see that it is only for short term use, and I cannot find information on how to titrate off. I get migraine headaches whenever I stop taking it for any length of time, as well as other symptoms...

I wish I could sleep so I wouldn't feel this way, but I can't stay asleep for longer than 30 minutes. I'm on xanax xr 3mg which is time released and seems to not do much, flexeril (this does nothing for my muscle and joint pain) and for my blood pressure I'm taking Clonodine which works for the hot and cold sweats. I've tried benadryl and that does nothing. I was told this could last up to 3 months.

I did this to myself this is why I chose to go cold turkey, can someone please tell me how long I will withdrawal for, when am I going to stop feeling depressed, and basically when can I go back to my normal life.
My plan is to do this for five days and hopefully make it through the worst withdrawal symptoms. I wanted to pass on my recipe for success. It has done wonders for me.
Hello Everyone, I have been reading your posts for about a week now. I took my last dose of OxyContin almost 10 days ago. I was prescribed it for Extreem back and neck pain due to an MVA. I started out 80mg 2x day. Then went to 60mg 2x a day. Then the last time I saw my doc I told him to decrease again to 40mg 2x A day. Well stupid me went through the percsription WAY TOO FAST. I went through a months worth in TWO WEEKS!
I have been taking 30 mg of ms contin twice a day for about a year for DDD. I have quit my very active job and have had two very pain free months. I asked the doc if I can get off. He told me to stop the evening dose and just go to the am 30 for the next couple of weeks till I see him again. This started Thursday pm. Needless to say the past couple of days have been rough, especially last night.

I will definitely look at the recipe and get the Epsom salt for soaking. Night is the worst and I have been taking flexeril just to knock me out so I can rest and not feel the terrible RLS. I know that's not good but I get no euphoria or benefit from it so I don't think I'll abuse it.
I have muscle spasms all the time, though, and have taken muscle relaxers for pain for a while. Flexeril does knock most people out and like everything affects everyone differently. It could be a rebound headache from the diaudid. If you have stopped taking the percoset, it's likely that as well. Stopping the percoset also could have been the cause of the muscle spasms. Have you ever had an MRI of your spine?

This is the cause of the constipation with opiates, they paralyze the smooth mucle of the intestines (opium, when sold over the counter was often given to children for diarrhea) this also accounts for the diarrhea when in withdrawal. You're going from one extreme to another, hot and cold. and this is never healthy. Have you ever seen someone sitting in a spa over 100 degrees and then jump into a cold pool in the dead of winter?

only way it nuerontin helped me in detox was by helping me sleep...never had rls either...it is a drug prescribed for diabetic nueropathy so interactions with insulin would not be a big factor.....it is a drug that makes the seizure threshold even higher/and is used for seizure patients so i would doubt it would cause someone to have seizures....it is an anti-seizure drug....all drugs have interactions...i do know that lyrica is way more dangerous in the terms of side effects....
Use the flexeril and try a heating pad that is what I have been using for my lower back pain and it seems to help some. I lay on it on the couch and sip an ice cream float and watch tv:) I don't know how u can keep from taking those extra pills??? I would hav caved by now...a professional massage is great too.
ps. I have been dealing with opiate use for 20 yrs. I have been in the exact same spot you are in right now. then I would get off of them and then would have something happen and need them, but continue to take them when the pain was gone. then 4 yrs ago I fell off of my roof while cleaning my gutters. I broke my back in several places, broke left hip and pelvis. Now I NEED the medication.
Freezing- Any opiate withdrawal usually gives you that freezing cold feeling. I can't wait for summer I am always cold!! What helps me temporarily anyways, is a hot-tub if your are lucky enough to have one! My finance' does so I am in it constantly!! If not a nice relaxing hot bath or shower. I drink hot tea & soup that helps too. Keep your feet warm! And wear layers of clothing. At work I dress really warm with lots of layers. J.E.W.
But I have been on methadone for 10 years straight now, starting at 80mg in the beginning slowly going down over the years to 17mg. I picked up my last 6 take homes from the clinic I transferred to & told them I would not be back. I broke those (6) 17mg doses into 18 doses of approx. 5.5mg each then on the last 5.5mg bottle I had I filled it w/ water & took 2mg/day for about 1 week.
