But I had forgotten a little bit of basic wisdom about Xanax and alcohol. Mixing the two can result in paralysis and death. It's there on rxlist.com for any idiot to read. Midnight came around I suddenly felt a little "too" medicated. It takes a lot for me to feel "too' medicated. Therefore, I elected to take a solitary stroll through our neighborhood to clear my head. We live in what amounts to a suburban enclave built into a row of steep hills.

About mixing methadone and klonopins.....well here is my story...... i was on meth, and buying klonopin 2mgs.... well one day , actually night i took like 8 or 10mgs. of them. The next day on my way to the meth clinic i was fine. After i took my 85mgs (at the time) dose, well no later than 10 minutes went buy and i knew i was about to black out. I had to drive 20 minutes to the clinic. so i stopped at a friends in the area to do some coke to wake me up....yeah...i know....
Ok this is my first time in one of these things, so please bear with me. My wife and I have been taking oxycontin the past year or so and it has gotten to the point of a 120-150 mg a day habit of snorting each. It has taken over our lives and has us fighting over money. We have finally come to a point where there is no money for the next 3 weeks and the time has come where there is nothing left to pawn or sell to keep this going any longer.
I have been on Oxycontin and Roxicodone for 9 yrs.I have degenerative disc disease with 3 shot discs..Started at 20 mg and worked my way up to 80mg real fast.I was taking 4 80 a day along with 6 30mg roxicodone a day for the breakthrough pain when I had a morphine pump installed.Was taking that dosage with the pump for a year until the pump got infected and had to come out.I later found out that was a blessing as they have now found all sorts of side effects with having the pump implanted.
There is 100mgs of morphine per ml of solution in my pump, and 1 MG OF MORPHINE ADMINISTERED INTO THE SPINAL FLUID EQUALS 120MGS ORALLY!!! Anyway I had the pump put in. My Dr. started me out at 25mgs (equivalent to 2500mgs orally) intrathecally. Within 1 month the pump had become infected with MRSA, a very dangerous/resistant staph infection only treatable with 1 anti-biotic called vancomycin.
I have been using for like 4 and a half years now, I used to be pretty social and would go out a lot and drink and do coke and then one day its like I traded it all in for oxycontin and got so addicted it was shocking. Id never really been addicted to something before the way ive become addicted to oxy. Its literally taken over my life and I want so bad to stop it. Thanks for the suggestions on vitamins, i have 5-HTP that I will take and some valerian root and melatonin so I will try all those.
yeah i was on alot of K the first 3 days - its day 13-the K wore off but im going through hellfire - HOT sweating spasms screaming - jesus - i was on oxycontin and oxycodone everday for 3 years - and took various other opiates for many years before that ( just not as much) this is so hard tonight - i keep forgeting it will ever stop and just want to die at least im not vomiting i suppose :(
Whether someones pain is real or they just want to catch THE BUZZ, Oxy's are extremely addicting. I've taken everything from Perc's to Stadol with Dilaudid and Morphine, and they say Stadol is the most addicting narcotic there is, it's inhaled and one hit will send you soaring, it's synthetic heroin. I have neuropothy in the brain stem.
i just switched from 70mgs of methodone to THREE 8mg subutex a day and im also on 4mgs of xanax a day...you have to be carful mixing subutex with xanax or any other "benzo"...and um..even though theres no "opate blocker" in subutex it still binds so tightly to the opiate receptors in the brain that it literaly blocks you from getting high on vics percs or heroin etc etc.
I am also prescribed percocet and I get 150 pills a month and I take it in addition to extended release morphine for chronic back pain. On average, I take 25 mg of percocet daily and up to 30 mg a day along with 60 mg of morphine per day. I have never had a morning after headache from the percocet. The maximum dose of acetaminophen that can be taken daily is 4,000 mg. So with 325 mg in each pill, you took well under the maximum dose.
I was prescribed xanax and zoloft about a month ago for anxioty and depression.... I was aware of the dangers of mixing xanax with alchol and considered my self a responsible adult. But as of last friday night 12/15/07 I didn't take the drug xanax mixed with alchol seriouly enough. I had taken 2/ .5 ml for a total of 1ml of xanax at aproximatly 10:00 pm that evening....
As for the Elavil causing Weight gain, That would be a PLUS for me. I am 6 foot 1, and USED to weigh 190... The ultram, and quitting drinking, and being on a Diabetically restricted diet has caused me to lose too much weight.. I am now a bony 140. Well, I can't wait to get on my new regimen! Thanks again...
You will just have to see how you do on the morphine and go from there. I couldn't take it when my dr prescribed it for me. I did better on other meds. Best of luck to you!
Mixing opiates(vicodine) and benzodiazepines(Xanax) is a very bad idea. I have seen many ER visits of "friends" from that combo. Seizures and death happen quit a bit as well. The last person I knew to die was on my one year clean week, about . He had too much morphine(opiate) and Klonopine(benzodiazepine) one night. He was cold next to his wife in bed by morning.
Ive been taking Ultram 50mg. 2tabs very 4 hrs or as need for pain for about 2-3 mos. now Ive never really noticed any "high" from it although I use to be very addicted to Vico ES and they would get me high but the Ultram has only helped with the pain in my neck from swollen disc. If I am wanting to buzz Ill drink maybe only on weekends either Fri night or Sat night.But my Dr gave me Prozac for my Depression from withdrawls of the Vicos...Ive been Clean ofer 6 mos now.....
I have done one of the following. This was before I was addicted but I was on a pretty hefty amount of oxycontin and percocet due to an accident and I was waiting for back surgery when I found out I was pregnant. I already saw the best perinatologists in my area due to pregnancy complications in the past so I consulted them as well as any specialists I could find. The most important thing I was told is that baby's inutero DO NOT handle withdrawal well.
I haven't been clean this long in over 3 years and it is both terrifying and exciting. For those who are just under way and facing the w/d head on...hang in there it isn't easy, but it is do able... Like I said I have never faced this part of the w/d phase before, always went back. I do feel like a human again, but my legs still ache and I feel so tired. Is this normal, what have you guys done to fight this? Again Thanks for everyting...
Do I need a break from the Morphine for awhile?And if anyone knows,what's the difference between Morphine and Percocets?Besides the strength of course.Thanks.
percocet and oxycontin are the same drug. one being mixed w/apap the other being time release , they are both oxycodone which is a semi synthetic opiate derived from thebaine. contin stands for continues release. Methadone (also known as Symoron, Dolophine, Amidone, Methadose, Junkie Juice, Physeptone, Heptadon, Phy and many other names) is a synthetic opioid, used medically as an analgesic, antitussive and a maintenance anti-addictive for use in patients on opioids.
00 pm and felt light headed and thought that I was in need of something to eat. The next thing I knew I was in the back of an ambulance and was looing eye to eye with an E.M.T. I had passed out and went into a seizure. I went to the hospital and had an, ekg, blood work, urine , and a cat scan, and everything came back normal. I had since cut my dosage to 50-75mg of the ultram before I go to bed.
Anyway, I started slow, a percocet here and a vicodin there. Once I discovered oxycontin I decided that I liked that one best. I'd take them recreationally, rarely ever taking more than 1.5 or 2 tablets per every coupe of days, then that turned to every day, and so the fun began Anyway, I would consume these tablets orally, until i discovered a method that let me IV the drugs. I did that for about a month until i noticed terrible effects.
A year ago my left leg was amputated above the knee and the real pain and phantom pain which is very real by the way has been excruciating at times , especially when I try to sleep . Opana has been the only thing that has worked to relieve my pain and I've tried a lot of things before going back to opana . I'm just looking for some advice I guess about subonox . I keep running out of the opana before it's time to get my new script and the withdrawals are really freaking bad .
I will tell you it helps you sleep alot better and I really didn't have any problems transferring I went off oxycontin and onto Fentanyl.For some it is a lease 0on a new life.I will advise you of several things make sure you like your Doctor because most Doctors do not like to perscribe it and will send you all over to get it.I also advise you to try not to up the dose as much as possible or weaning off will be a nightmare for you.
Have you ever tried a Duragesic pain patch? It is strong (in diff doses)and steady and lastly about 3 days if you've got good skin absorption. The med in Duragesic is about 100 times as strong as morphine mg for mg.
It is wonderful to know I can come here and speak to others, though I have a wonderful husband that also suffers from terrible pain and is so understanding and comforting. I saw my doctor today who was very kind and understanding and decided to up the morphine and if that doesn't work, maybe combine the contin with ultram, but this was his first choice. So far, so good. I'll be in touch. You are all in my prayers. My blessings to u all. Optimus, thanks for all your feedback, keep in touch.
I would be glad to share with you my experiences with opioid addiction and Benzo addiction. I was severely and utterly addicted to heroin and/or Oxycontin or Dilaudid for close to two and half years and for more than a year of that time and afterwards I was addicted heavily to Benzodiazepaines.
Sorry for background, but here's the question. If I take codeine or hydrocodone and try to skip at least 12 hours and hopefully, a day here and there will I get as horridly hooked as I was on the oxycontin's? I can not schedule these tests as fast as needed. At least I convinced my regular doc that tramadol was not an option and I thank you all for that! Also, how long after dropping lexapro could I start taking the recommended supplements that you can't take while on an SSRI?
Any other ideas? My doctor had me on ultam and morphine, which actually helped more, but now he won't let me take it, but in a way, it may be for the best. I was a semi body builder and probably contributed to the pain. I worked out for over 25 years and should have slowed down. I guess my question is, does 25 mg every 4 days or so, sound about right? Thanks.
