How is your health, diet, and migraines right now? Your withdrawal symptoms sound normal, what have you been doing to try and get off opiates? Acupuncture, vitamin therapy, exercise, anything?
I had no withdrawal symtoms from Tramadol when switched to Morphine as the medicine masked whatever withdrawal symptoms were there. When I first started Morphine I had really bad heartburn. You could check the prescription leaflet for the Oxymorphone to see if anything you experienced last night is in there. Before switching to Morphine, I had 1/2 of my daily dose of Tramadol (200 mgs) switched out and replaced with Vicodin.
I've been reading posts in here and it seems alot of people are/were addicted to vicoden/lortab/norco and oxycontin, but I haven't read about anyone being addicted to dilaudid or oxymorphone. Are 2 drugs considered as addictive as oxycontin? I'm asking because my g/f's pain doctor might switch her from methadone to one of these. She doesnt abuse her methadone at all, she has no desire, but I have seen her take excessive amounts of oxycontin in the past. Thanks!
Anyone have an experience getting off Dilaudid? I have been clean fo a week (well, in a couple of hours it will be a full week) and so far it hasn't been anywhere near as bad as getting off Hydrocodone. I was doing 10 mG of hydros 6x/day for the past 6 months, after being on regular dosage Vicodin for almost 4 years. My source of pain was a trashed talus (ankle bone) after a motorcycle accident in 2002. Finally, on the 26th of January, I went on for a total ankle fusion.
I was on oxycotin 80 mg 4xd for since 1995,then iwas switched to Oxymorphone 40 mg 3 xd which by conversion from endo I needed 1 mg of oxymorph to every 2 mg of oxycotin the dr did not see it that way but the mfg endo says so to get the same dosage.now they just basically left me to whatever.

Its the first time in my life i realize that i have no control over this situation and im scared. When i withdrawal i find myself in pain all over my body, my body temperature is all over the place, i cant sleep and most of the time i end up in the fetal position shaking. ive read a ton of forums and i havent read about anybody having symptoms as severe as i get them. Im afraid to go to rehab, petrified that i will lose my job.
Now i have been home for 6 days and the withdrawal symptoms have come back hard and I am really suffering. What advice do you have?
I was a maniac for well over a month due to back aches, cramps.. I'm sure you know all of the symptoms. You are doing really well, everytime I have tried to detox voluntarily over time I always end up telling them to take my dose back up to the top. I have been on this particular clinic for ten years and I wish I could get off of it. My life is flying by and I haven't really noticed.
But why is he sick with symptoms that so closely resemble withdrawal? At this point, we're thinking all the drugs combined with his age, etc, have blown some sort of fuse in his neurological system. Is this possible? Has anyone heard of a situation like this before? We're looking for some clues to get him out of his misery...he's at his wit's end. Sorry for the long post! Thanks! 13th June off everything because he was get off all the drugs.
Things get gradually worse for around 4 days, then suddenly you will feel much, much better. So hang in there, with luck in another day or two you will be over the worst of it. The insomnia and cravings do tend to be the last symptoms to go away in all honesty but the rest are very short term for most people. I kept going as I knew it would soon (mostly) pass and that I had to clean up to get my life back, or even stay alive at all ... but this fight is different for everyone.
MY PERSONAL DIARY OF OXYCONTIN WITHDRAWAL. May I briefly fill in a little background.I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
The length and severity of withdrawal symptoms is dependent on each individual’s situation. Safely doing this by “cold turkey” will mostly be based on your age and health. If you are young and healthy, the withdrawal may be quite uncomfortable but usually safe. Whereas if you are older and have blood pressure issues or other health problems, there are more risks to your safety and you should make sure to have the support and guidance of your prescribing physician.
Meanwhile take up some form of physiotherapy to help reduce the pain. If you have withdrawal symptoms then please consult your doctor immediately. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Endo has been the major distributor of oxymorphone throughout the world and currently markets oxymorphone in the United States and elsewhere as Opana and Opana ER. Opana is available as 5 mg and 10 mg tablets; Opana ER, an extended-release form of oxymorphone, is available as tablets in strengths of 5 mg, 7½ mg, 10 mg, 15 mg, 20 mg, 30 mg, and 40 mg.
Immediately after the accident, my orthopaedic doctor put me on percocet. When they run out, I supplement with oxymorphone (opana) or oxycontin. The doses I have been taking daily are very low (30-40mgs) but if I do not have them I do experience withdrawal symptoms (I believe I am a bit more sensitive to them because of my previous addiction). I want to get off everything now while its still short term but I cant seem to do it because of the discomfort of the withdrawal.
If you suddenly stop taking Nubain , you may experience WITHDRAWAL symptoms including anxiety; diarrhea; fever, runny nose, or sneezing; goose bumps and abnormal skin sensations; nausea; vomiting; pain; rigid muscles; rapid heartbeat; seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not there; shivering or tremors; sweating; watery eyes; stomach cramps; restlessness"
However it is my understanding that going to a higher or more potent opiate will mask any withdrawal symptoms from a lesser opiate. His physician apparently wants him to take the Opana ER routinely and the Opana IR for break thought pain. This is not unusual. I would never add Norco back into the equation unless directed by his physician. His symptoms could be his systems reaction to the Opana. Once his body adjusts the symptoms should subside.
I'm on Opana 5mg 2 of them 4 times a day and Opana ER 20mg 2 times a day. I was on Norco (vicodin) for a year before that. I really cant say i had withdrawals with the vicodin, being i am currently now going through withdrawals from the Opana and it is a million times worse!
The sad part of this whole story is that modern science has never really perfected the perfect pain pill. There's always going to be side effects and withdrawal symptoms to contend with. Especially when used for long term pain relief. What's your thoughts on this pain pill called Oxymorphone? I've noticed that a lot of doctors are starting to prefer this prescription for patients.
Like 5mg a day for 2 weeks then another 5mg a day for 2 weeks and so on till I am done with the tabs. What are the withdrawal symptoms I can except and how horrible are they? will there be any anxiety, restlessness and agitation involved? hope not.
FOR SIX WEEKS WHERE THEY DETOXED ME OFF OF 7-8 OPANA FOURTY'S A DAY TAKEN UP THE NOSE WITH SUBOXONE AND I HAD ALMOST ZERO WITHDRAWL SYMPTOMS. IT WAS VERY COMFORTABLE. YOU DONT HAVE TO DO THIS ALONE AND SUBOXONE WILL MAKE YOU COMFORTABLE AND AT EASE INSTEAD OF BEING MISERABLE AND RISKING SERIOUS MEDICAL PROBLEMS AND EVEN DEATH. I SAW SEVERAL VERY BAD HEROINE ADDICTS BE SUCCESSFULL WITH SUBOXONE. DONT LET THE DOCTORS TELL YOU THAT IT WONT HELP.
If you've been addicted to heroin and oxy's it's a fair bet that you have taken xanax and/ or somas to keep withdrawal symptoms at bay. Around here most heroin addicts use xanax and most oxy users take somas. Xanax is a dangerous road though if you take it longer than about 10 days. A little known fact is that xanax withdrawal is much more dangerous than even heroin withdrawal. It can cause major seizures and even stroke for starters.
Methodone is for ANY opiate addiction because it binds to the same receptor sites in the brain as does any opiate (hydrocodone, morphine, codeine, oxycodone/oxycontin, oxymorphone,demerol,dilaudid etc. etc. etc.) So yes the methadone stops the withdrawal symptoms without giving you the high. Yes you can get a high from methadone if you take a large amount but bot the same high as hydrocodone. Remember hydrocodone is a more potent opioid than even codeine making the high so smooth and euphoric!
First the long acting (opana also called oxymorphone) and then the percocet (oxycodone w/ tylanol). If you can dispense the medicine instead of him doing it, this can regulate how often he's taking it and ween him off the drugs. People going through withdrawal are extremely vulnerable and can revert back to old behaviors in order to get rid of the pain and sickness they feel. This behavior will be irrational and he might try to justify why he needs more.
So yes it helps prevent withdrawal related diarrhea well, but it won't have much effect on any overall symptoms of withdrawal. Physical dependency can be an issue with Immodium over long-term use, but not addiction. So secondary withdrawal really shouldn't be an issue.
If you feel that going cold turkey is a struggle for you, consider trying suboxone or subutex. It will eliminate the withdrawal symptoms and even help with your pain as it is an opioid medication. Difference is, it has a ceiling effect without euphoria. There are some chronic pain patients that use it for pain even though its main purpose is to aid opioid cessation. Wishing you very best and I am glad you are getting help. Please do keep in touch as you are always welcome here.
Had definite withdrawal symptoms, though moderate. A little better now. Really bad anxiety, though, and it just doesn't touch the pain. I'm giving it a fair chance until Monday. I guess I'm very sensitive to medications, and I probably need to look at which one gives me the most benefit with tolerable side effects. So far, it seems to me that oxycodone is coming out ahead. Interesting, though, that with certain manufacturers' dosages I have more side effects than with others.
usually the withdrawal symptoms from methadone dont start until after 36 hrs. yes it will get much worse. you need to do a taper. please go back to the clinic and you also need to see your ob/gyn and tell them you have been on methadone.
