Neurontin for suboxone withdrawal

Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin for suboxone withdrawal

neurontin

This is all so interesting and I thank you for sharing. I take Neurontin ONLY at night bc it helps me sleep but I otherwise hate the way the drug makes me feel. It surprises me that it is abused, but that would explain why lyrica is controlled-it must have some abuse potential. The kicker on this all is that I don't have an addictive personality. I allowed myself to become addicted this time, but I'm in my late 40's. If I ever get out of this mess,I'm not going back.
How many people on this site have been put on neurontin for pain issues, etc? I have done reading on the side effects, withdrawals from this drug and it is scary. I have a whole *hitload of this stuff and have not touched it. Why are we becoming the guinea pigs for many of these drugs that have been on the market for a short time? I just would like some feedback.
I've been on suboxone for a year and my doctor and I decided that it's time to come off. I did a slow taper down to .5 grams per day. I'm on day 5 and can't stand the inability to sleep.Any advice on this and how long this is going to last? I'm super frustrated. Thanks for any feedback.
See if a doctor can write your friend 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 Klonopin which will be helpful for sleeplessness and anxiety. It will make his withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
You need to get with your prescribing doctors and start tapering on those meds. The benzos NEED to be tapered. The withdrawal from the Suboxone will be intense if you don't taper down as far as you can. We can support you through this but the tapers themselves have to come from your doctor(s).
I have been on Percocet for 10 years and then was taking Ultram to not have withdrawal but after reading all the horror stories on here about Ultram, I tried the Neurontin. I have been on it for 3 days and no withdrawal symptoms whatsoever. I am shocked. I heard it is not addictive either so I'm staying on it for a week or two and then stopping to see if the Perc are out of my system.
Wellbutrin helps with the drug cravings and Neurontin helps with withdrawals for me. I take those meds for depression and anxiety too. Neurontin helps me get to sleep and stay asleep longer. I can wake up to go to the bathroom but can go right back to sleep. I couldn't befpre I started on this medication.
I have been off Suboxone for 1 week now. My Dr had had prescribed a 2 week withdrawal script but I am unable to take this due to a court ordered program. This Drug Court has said I MUST be clean from this and any other drugs by Nov. 2nd. I've signed my life away to do this so I MUST be clean. Questions: 1.How long will this stay in my system? I had tested positive after taking no Suboxone for 3 days. The court said I should have been negative. They have given me 2 weeks to do this.
I know u have to speak from a dr perspective as well but I don't get the month lasting withdrawal.

yes, Neurontin is for seizures, pain, anti-anxiety. It gives some tiredness but is a very usefull drug to control seizures. I am going back on it to control my seizures. The Klonopin is not enough.
In December, I will have been on suboxone for a year. Meanwhile, I'm reading horror stories about suboxone withdrawal. Do you think I will have an easy time during wds? I haven't had any major problems while tapering other than feeling tired. I simply find it hard to believe that it is going to be easy!!!
He did not want to take the Suboxine, but had been on Xanax for about 25 years for anxiety and panic attacks. He accepted the Suboxone. Over the next two years on Suboxone he gradually lost the will to live. He went from an active AA participant (15 years recovering & sober alcoholic) to a man with almost no friends and no hobbies or interests at all. He lost interest in his children, grandchildren, hobbies and even sex.
I just bumped into this as my shrink is thinking of trying neurontin on me since I've been obliterated for four years now from Paxil withdrawal. Just has never ended. But I want to say, neurontin is GABA, basically, so taking GABA while taking it is probably a bad idea. Also, GABA is not well absorbed as a supplement -- doesn't cross the blood/brain barrier well. Taking taurine is a better way to produce GABA in the brain -- it's the substance that the body uses, alone with B6, to make GABA.
I used Neurontin during my Suboxone withdrawal which helped tremendously with the restless legs. It also made me sleepy which should help you sleep through your withdrawal symptoms. Another great medication you should ask your doctor about is clonidine. This can help with the anxiety associated with the withdrawal. These two medications helped me greatly when I was going through withdrawal myself. I don't know if I could have done it without them.
I am still on the neurontin for nerve pain............but 32 days clean today from Hydrocodone. I am on 600 MG's of neurontin 4 times a day, but I don't take it that much I usually take one in the am then one in the evening before I go to bed.
I had been on Suboxone for one years & was cut off cold turkey. Suboxone is truely the devils drug. yes it does help to do away with other narc.However the down side is ( to me ) the WDs are much worse than the pain pills. Today is day number 6 off suboxone for me & its hell.The lack of energy,body aches,mood swings runny nose. No motivation what so ever, However I created this monster in me.
A physician may be able to prescribe you some Requip for the restless leg syndrome, Neurontin for agitation and malaise, and possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia. I promise you will be feeling better and better every day. It may take months to actually feel great again.
Neurontin is used with other drugs in the treatment of some types of seizures and for the management of postherpetic neuralgia (nerve pain caused by the herpes virus or shingles).
I can't afford to be a mess in work, and my mind is mayhem in a normal state, let alone in withdrawal. I've heard suboxone withdrawal is the worst kind of withdrawal, and am basically looking for some help. I have some Neurontin and Clonidine at my disposal, as well as a full prescription to Klonipin. I'm currently on basically 8mg of suboxone a day, self prescribed by buying them on the street.
I've been an abuser of oxycodone 30mg pills for about 2 years. I switched to suboxone for the last 6 months. I was on about 1mg a day, sometimes a little more, maybe up to 2mg on some days. Well, I finally decided that I don't want to be a slave to a drug anymore. I want my life back. I used to be a motivated, successful person. Since I started the opiates, I've lost my job, lost my motivation, isolated myself from my friends, and spent most of the money I had saved up.
I was prescribed neurontin for sciatic pain due to a herniated disc at the L5-S1 level. My nerve damage was pretty bad at the time and also caused foot drop. The neurologist said I would probably always have foot drop. After I had surgery the foot drop slowly went away as did the sciatic pain. I was told the nerve heals at only a cm. a month. So if you were like me and had nerve pain from butt to foot it will take quite awhile for that pain to subside.
How long do suboxone withdrawals last? I only took it for about 2 weeks-I started w/ 1 8mg strip a day & then gradually decreased the amount over the last 2 weeks; however, I have used opiates regularly over the last 8 years. Prior to taking the suboxone I was taking 12-16 Norcos a day. Today is the first day without anything & I wanna crawl outta my skin!

But for right now, to deal with your withdrawal symptoms, 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, Clonidine helps with the creepy-crawly feeling and helps stabilize the blood pressure. All of these medications will make your life easier during this time.

In other words, you're going to have to get off both the neurontin and the suboxone for a while before your brain chemistry returns to normal. There just isn't any magic substance that will allow it happen sooner. Your brain has to heal, and time is the only thing that will do it. Wean yourself off the neurontin slowly. That's a medication that should not be discontinued suddenly.
I am well.. waiting to do my Suboxone taper this week to get off these damn pills for once and for all..
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 wish I would have just went into a detox center for heroin instead of going to the methadone clinic. I don't even have the energy to walk.
but i have lived through norco withdrawals for a broken back and seriously hated it. am i in for deep **** and what are my options for withdrawal from ultram. my doc has never said a word about tapering off ultram but after reading this.....i think i need some xanax to relax.
