, but, as I've also mentioned above, I have still been getting these headaches having been off the alcohol altogether for two months now - although nowhere near as bad. In my case, I'm sure it's linked to a back problem which may be exacerbated by alcohol because it only really gets noticeable when I sit at the same angle in the same seat (I know, I know ... there's an answer to THAT one!).
HI I help a lot of people get free of this stuff as for how long will it take on the good side a couple of weeks for the physical withdrawal and a month for the mental stuff for me it was a solid 2 weeks of withdrawal then it took about 90 dasys for things to come around for most it will be somewhere in the middle it something only time and God will heal I will say this it is so so worth it to not be chained to this stuff and worth every bit of misery to break free good luck and God bless......
It is kind-of scary that the side effect to worry about is a seizure, but I honestly think that there has to be more withdrawal symtoms than that. My face feels numb for about a week after I cut my clonazepam down and then I feel ok until I do it again, but it is just a horrible feeling! Do you have any symptoms when you don't take it? I have looked at several web sites and there are not really any listed. My Dr. tells me that it will cause body aches but that is about it.
I was taking 15mg of hydrocodone a day for about a month. I can not for the life of me figure out how I could be suffering withdrawal. I know all are different, but yesterday I had a screaming headache, and this morning I have anxiety, worse than the last couple of days. I don't have an anxiety to where I have to have the pills, it's just anxious feeling, like before you reach the top of a rollercoster, but it does not go away. I sleep 6 to 8 hours, now, thank god.
Withdrawal from most of the meds is unpleasant but not dangerous, except for valium or xanax-type medications, alcohol, or barbiturates-- all of which can have fatal withdrawal. One thing to look into is Suboxone; it is an opiate partial agonist that is being used more and more for chronic pain. It is primarily used to treat opiate dependence, and it has potent opiate activity; understand that it is a step down a road that you may not want to take.
These are usually intention tremors and other causes which need ruling out is alcohol withdrawal, hyperthyroidism, and etc. Treatment would include medicines like propranolol, which blocks adrenaline related neurotransmitters, and primidone which is an antiseizure drug. Consult your neurologist for the indication of therapy and the relevant treatment should be given if indicated. Take care.
Other causes include the use of some drugs (such as amphetamines, caffeine, corticosteroids, and drugs used for certain psychiatric disorders), alcohol abuse or withdrawal, mercury poisoning, overactive thyroid or liver failure. Tremors can be an indication of hypoglycemia, along with palpitations, sweating and anxiety. Some forms of tremor are inherited and run in families, while others have no known cause.

Some are inherited, some due to excessive alcohol, or alcohol withdrawal, which can kill nerve cells, overactive thyroid, and certain drugs. Essential tremor, dystonic tremor is also possible. Usually there is no cure. Treatment may include propranolol or other beta-blockers and primidone, dystonic tremor may respond to drugs like clonazepam, anticholinergics, etc.
old because he stopped taking the xanax for over a week. You'd think it was the coke and alcohol right? Not this time. Benzodiazepine w/d is dangerous no matter how young and healthy you are. It can also cause acute delirium, I have seen a friend go through this also after stopping 10-20 bars a day cold turkey. He was 19 at the time. It can sometimes happen that abusing benzos. can cause seizures, this is not all that common but it has happened. xoxo- D.
tremors need to be checked, these are unintentional rhythmic muscle movement involving back and forth movements in hands, arms, head, face, voice and legs. Some are inherited, some due to excessive alcohol, or alcohol withdrawal, which can kill nerve cells, overactive thyroid, and certain drugs. Essential tremor, dystonic tremor is also possible. Usually there is no cure.

Also, you should never stop taking Beta Blockers or Calcium Channel Blockers suddenly, you should taper the dosage down. Abrupt withdrawal, especially for someone with known or unknown Coronary Artery Disease, from either of those two drugs can cause some serious affects, including worsening of an arrhythmia, angina and chest pain, and possibly result in a heart attack.
The beta blockers I take (I'm prescribed atenolol [Tenormin] and propranolol [Inderal] for my tremor, and coincidentally, I am on clonazepam for anxiety issues (though if it I didn't have essential tremor, I wouldn't take it daily ― I don't need it so often for my anxiety anymore) and I'm also on topiramate/Topamax which is an anti-convulsant that I've been told by my doctor shows that it can help tremor from ET.
Inderal ( Propranolol) 20mgs 2x's a day, that is what I take.
I went to another doctor for the tremor and she took some blood tests and found that my thyroxine levels were just near the upper limit. she didn't give me any medication except for propranolol for the tremor. The propranolol helps a little but i'm not happy with having to take it and i don't. I definetely need some help.
There are many medications out there for headaches that are non-addicting. I take Imitrex for my headaches, it works very well for me and it is non-narcotic and very safe. There are many other medications that are similar to imitrex which also work very well. Perhaps you could write back and give us a little more info. on your situation. How long have you been having the headaches? Were they diagnosed as being migraine? How long have you been taking the ultram and at what daily dose?
She currently has alcohol withdrawal and the docs say it is very brave to quit. I have suicide thoughts every 3 to 4 days of a week. My psychotherapist has helped me make good progress but it is a long road still. I celebrate every day that I manage to get through. Your situation sounds a very tough struggle, too. It's incredible how you have made it to now. You've much courage and strength. Keep going!
I am now down to 15mg Oxycodone 4 x per day, and my doc has prescribed Clonidine for the withdrawal symptoms, This may be helpful for you as it really reduces the grinding and relentless anxiety, hot flashes, restless leg syndrome (mine is restless spine) and insomnia. I completely get how different it is for us, as we're not just contending with WD, but with very real and true pain.
it's the theory of my pharmacist that the drug speeds up the metabolism of the propranolol which then produces the withdrawal feelings from propranolol. if you do not keep a steady blood level, your heart starts racing and you get spikes in blood pressure, heart palps, etc. in any event, i have noticed that even if i have been clean for weeks and then take a dose or two, this effect happens within a few hours.
I find, like many, that alcohol completely aleviates them, but the next day, they come back even worse (I get the shakes as if I were a full-blown alcoholic going through withdrawal.) For the most part, my tremors are only in my hands, unless I am EXTREMELY aggitated, in which case, my head will be affected as well (although this is rare.) I also notice that the tremors are far worse when I am nervous or anxious. My dr.
you realize you are taking more and more to get the desired affect, and you either stop for a while or you spend a lot of money on getting more. My insurance will pay for the pills but they won't pay for treatment. So my premium is 300 a month, deductible for a specialist is 2500, and it won't pay for the specialist I need...but it will pay for pills that are dangerous to discontinue when they won't work anymore. I'm upset. Thanks for replying. I'll be careful.
I do what you can to avoid it. If you're not sure if you're addicted to alcohol, there's a good forum for it right here on medhelp. Go talk to people. Get educated.
Oxys are hard to get off of. Maybe you can get some more short acting opiods and do that for about a couple weeks. Then the WDs won't be so bad. I don't care what anyone says, knock yourself out with xanax or something - thats the only way I got through it and get some hyland's restless leg syndrome OTC. I basically told on myself to my doctor and he prescribed me propranolol 3x a day for those "tremors" I call the creepies and .1 MG of clonodine at night .
Hey.. saw this post and wondering if taking 2 Excedrin PM @ NIGHT is bad??? I am a recovering addict x's 75 days off of a 8-10 Norco habit a day x's 3 years for 2 back surgeries and was told that I could take the Excedrin PM in order to help relieve my sciatic pain and back pain at night so that I could get some sleep...

First i would like to tell you that i find this site very helpful when i am having palpitations , as do lots of others from what i am reading and i will apologize before hand for asking the same palpitation questions . however even though we all have them they are a very personal thing in that for myself i talk myself into thinking that they are so different from what others are experiencing.
I only want to let others know my personal experience so that they can be best informed --- my mother was diagnosed with fibro several years back and even before they had a name for fibro she was called crazy, etc and was left on her own to deal with it - thank goodness we all live now in a better generation where it is not only recognized but also accepted within the medical community - nevertheless - yes I was always in a higher risk category for developing it with my mother having also been
At one point we had him on the list for a liver transplant, but they did random drug and alcohol testing and caught him drinking. Needless to say, he was promptly removed from the list. That was last March. He went to Rehab in April, but came back and started drinking again. Sometimes it is difficult for me to tell if he has been drinking or if he is just confused. I have to go with my gut instinct which says that he has been drinking.
