Common Questions and Answers about Morphine withdrawal home treatment

My husband is addicted to Morphine. I have never done any type of drug and I really don't know what to do to help. Every time I think I know what is going on I find out something else he has lied about. At first it was just taking the pills, then it was crushing the pills. Now I'm finding needles and spoons everywhere. He claims that he gets the pills down to liquid form and puts them in the needle and squirts it in his mouth. I just don't believe him anymore.
It is mildly hallucinogenic. Reports indicate that one treatment with this substance blocks withdrawal, and even craving seems to disappear for a varying length of up to several months, providing "breathing room" for a person to obtain traditional non-drug treatments. One would think that the medical establishment, the FDA, the congress and the public would be enthusiastically promoting research into this drug.
If you chose Morphine withdrawal it's symptoms reach peak intensity in 36 to 72 hours. Without treatment, withdrawal symptoms runs their course in 5 to 7 days, even though craving for Opium may continue for months. You probably seek for addiction specialist as soon as possible. ________ jhazline_20 Comprehensive resources for those looking for recovery from addiction. http://www.addictionrecovery.
if I change to morphine for my immediate surgery pain, will I still experience percocet withdrawal pain while on the morphine? Also since I will only be on the morphine for 6-10 days the morphine would not cause withdrawals when I stopped if I were to go this route would it? Normally I know I'm strong enough to handle it, but after surgery I don't even want to try.
if anyone out there has any tips on what will help me get through this cold turkey stop from herion at home treatment it would be greatly appreciated! i have been doing it for 7 months straight every single day and im far away from home at a family members house getting clean..tommorow will be my first full day without it. wish me luck..
Hi Sumz, You're really doing great. Your Mom's going to be so grateful and so proud of you when this is all over. Do you have anyone else there to give you support? Hang in there.
usually if ur pain required dilaudid in the hospital they send u home with a po pain med? or by mouth is what i meant....in any case if the use was for only 2 weeks..it shouldnt be anytime at all...i would think if it is wd u should be at the end of it...
Since a drop in dosage is causing withdrawal symptoms, you will experience some degree of withdrawal. If you are able to slowly taper down your dosage, the final withdrawal will be easier. Also, if you continue using the narcotic the withdrawal will be worse. If you truly need it for bad pain, by all means use it. Just keep your physician informed about your tolerance and withdrawal symptoms.
no home support, but once i kick the withdrawal I plan on going to a 12 step program,I went to aa years ago cause im an alcoholic also, but havent drank for years
Considering you have a short-term habit (judging from the fact that you've been using your mom's supply), and the drug involved is good ole morphine, which has a predictable and manageable withdrawal syndrome, I suggest that you do it cold turkey by yourself. I also suggest not telling your doctor about this unless you have a health issue that will be made worse by withdrawal. It will radically change the way he treats you.
I got ultram took it for 3wks stopped and felt a severe withdrawal started taking it again after I was assured that couldn't be! I felt much better when I did I realized they were wrong! I stopped taking it. I have 9 years clean time. I would never lose that for anything!! I did some investigating on the intrenet and found hundreds of people going through the same thing.I also found the the elavil & flexaril I take (both for pain) increased the amount of ultram by 40% each!.
Of course you should read more about it if you are considering it and much info is online. A more conventional treatment for physical withdrawal symptom control involves using a medication called Clonidine, a drug that does not cause dependence and is primarily used for treating hypertension. That is available here from any doctor. I'd also suggest reading up on it if you are considering it. It is often used in conjunction with an antihistamines or other mild drugs.
Hey I'm new just jumping in here. I'm on my fourth day withdrawal from vicodin for 2 years. The worst, and I do mean worst is over. You know the hopelessness. But I'm still suffering from depression and tired all the time. I Have also been taking phentermine diet pills for about 5 years now. Not as often since I started the vicodin. I'm taking them everyday again now just for the energy to pick my children up from school. Will I have withdrawal from this too?
I am just curious as to how bad withdrawal can be? It has been 60 hours now since my last dose and I believe I am starting to feel normal again. The last 2 days were very uncomfortable, but I didn't experience any throwing up or other symptioms that other talk about, just cold sweat and boredom and a general discomfort. It wasn't like I was on a small a small dose either. I was snorting 240 mgs of oxycontins for the past 2 - 3 months straight. Anyone have any comments??
You're risking a horrible seizure if what you've done is run out after using benzos on a daily basis, and now are just going cold turkey. A benzo withdrawal seizure can leave you a cold turkey. It's common knowledge that you must be tapered down from benzos or risk a life-threatening seizure. I've been through one. I came within a hairs breath of dying. The vigilance of my sweet wife is the only reason I am alive.
I am wondering if there is anything I can do to make the withdrawal process easier for him. I am also wondering if there are any resources I can utilize to help him. We are located near Syracuse, NY and all methadone clinics we found have a 6 month wait. Any advice at all would be appreciated, I've never taken anything stronger than Motrin so narcotics and withdrawals are not something I am familiar with!!
While tapering, in order to continue work and not suffer withdrawal, I was given xanax. I became addicted at one time up to 25 mg.s a day, down to 15 now. It's been close to a year. What is the best way to detox without losing my job? If I take a medical leave for 30 days in December and take no xanax, will that be enough time or should I continue to slowly taper? Also, my rehab doctor has given me Prozac to help withdrawal from the xanax.
He went through the typical withdrawal symptoms the first week and is getting better everyday. However, he has these vomiting spells. Sometimes it's only once, other times, like last night, he goes on all night long. Is this normal withdrawal? He does have an extra sensitive stomach (perhaps from doing so many drugs) and vomiting isn't out of the ordinary for him. But I am concerned that maybe there is something more seriously wrong. Any feedback is welcome.
Yes I do know it is Mscontin. I hated taking that stuff. It never did a lick for the pain. Maybe it did after about a week. It just doesn't work good for me. I remember the 1st day at the pharmacy when I got it. I said "There is no way in H#@@#$ that I am taking MORPHINE". It said morphine sulfate on the label. They ended up getting my doc and explaining it to me. Then I found out it didn't work. So I just stopped taking it after about 5 days. I got restless leg sooooooo bad.
I use to be on 15 mg daily and I took myself down very slowly from that dose to about 7 1/2 daily about a year ago. I was afraid to go all the way down in case my pain became severe again. I got the withdrawal information from the local methadone clinic at that time. (My doctor thought I should just stop taking the dose...very bad idea.) I am now attempting to get completely off methadone but have no idea how to titrate down without experiencing severe symptoms.

After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW! Serious withdrawal symptoms including joint and muscle pain, stomch issues, fatigue, depression and a strange hollowness in my nerves ensued. I didn't feel I could just stop functioning for a week or two or whatever it would take, so I used some hydrocodone that I had to help me get my tramadol use down to 100mg per day over the course of a week.
Many addiction doctors now prescribe it (even though technically it's only FDA approved for the treatment of pain, not opiate withdrawal), and mine even phoned in the script to my local Walgreens. Biut if you can't get Buprenex, try using 1-2 Clonidines every six hours but monitor your blood pressure and be careful about standing up too quickly. As for Klonopin, that's another matter entirely.
I was in the hospital for 7 days due to a kidney and ureter surgery and placed on a morphine pca pump any time i wanted it well i wanted it all the time. when i got home they sent me percocet but i really dont like taking anything this is my 4 night of HELL when i lay down my legs jump i tried tylenol pm, muscle relaxers, but when i take 2 percocet guess what it stops I do not want to be addicted to this when wil this get out my system? Has any one else had this experience?
The doc in the ER said that there was really nothing that he could do for me, so he gave me some more of the 30 mg Morphine tabs to take and sent me home. I only have 3 of those left. Every time I try to stop them completely, I cannot sleep because the pain is so severe. I was up for 41 hours because of the pain until I finally broke down and took one of the morphine pills, a clonopan, and a sleeping pill.
I actually found it easier to come off the morphine first, and then see what med I could try after. This way, I knew what was withdrawal, and what was a side effect of the new med. the detox was tough, I was sick for two months, and the third month I was pretty emotional and a little depressed. I pretty much prepared to hunker down for a few months, it was like having a bad flu, but I was prepared and ready to come off. I was really sick from withdrawing, and needed family to support me.
That the pills were EVERYTHING before. I'm so happy!!!! I'm so proud of him!! I think his withdrawal symptoms weren't that bad because he REALLY wanted to do this. I think that makes it easier. He was ready to stop and his mind was ready to let him. :) It's been a week since he left and he thinks it's almost over!! At least the worst parts. He knows that it is still going to take time though.
I have to detox or taper at home, my insurance won't cover inpatient treatment. I've gone to aa/na meetings, but since I don't take fioricet for fun, I haven't gotten much help there. Do you have any advise or insight?
I am doing like 5 bottles a day so like 1 gram of ethylmorphine which is not as strong as morphine but a bit stronger than codine. Well I have tried to quit just a week ago I made a choice to quit so I metered down from 5 to 3 to 2 to 1 bottle and then none and the last 2 days with none was hell. I woke up this morning feeling so bad not eating for like 3 days so i went out and bought more. I only had 2 bottle todays to just feel ok but I know I want more.
I'm here for help with narcotic withdrawal. Does anybody think I will get more reposes because I'm spending an awful lot of time on here and getting very little response. I'm new, 5 days today, but it seems like if I'm saying some heavy stuff and sharing generously i should get responses. I'm going for knee surgery to eradicate MRSA; This is my 5 or 6 surgery within 3 years. My goal is to get off the narcs after the surgery? Any advice, questions or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
