Requip withdrawal

Common Questions and Answers about Requip withdrawal

requip

I need to transition from sinemet to requip but don't know how to do this and doctor's aren't much help - probably because they don't know either. I must have sinemet to get to sleep - if I don't take it I will be awake all night. I am supposed to drop the sinemet and switch to requip - starting the requip at the lowest dosage and titrate up until I reach a dosage that works.
As you already know, it usually takes several weeks of the really nasty symptoms of acute withdrawal, followed by several months of just insomnia and general weakness and depression. A physician may be able to prescribe you some Requip for the restless leg syndrome and possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia. The reason for this longer depression and insomnia symptoms is because Ultram/tramadol has an effect on the serotonin receptor in the central nervous system.
I would not recommend stopping it cold turkey as the withdrawal from it is essentially the same as the one for the opiates. It usually takes several weeks of the really nasty symptoms followed by several more of just insomnia and general weakness and depression. A physician may be able to prescribe you some Requip for the restless leg syndrome and possibly something like Seroquel low dose for the insomnia. Tramadol also has an effect on the serotonin receptor in the central nervous system.
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.
Also, my primary care manager doesn’t know much about opiate withdrawal symptoms and as a result isn’t much help. How does one find a doctor with knowledge and experience with opiate withdrawal and should I be looking for a medical doctor or a physiatrist?
I am concerned about withdrawal, as even though my total intake each day isnt a lot, my body is used to taking one a day. Is the withdrawal going to be long and hard, I am nervous and scared. I already take medication for severe anxiety (klonopin, effexor 75mg once a day) I just want to know what kind of symptoms and how long I will have to deal with it. ANY AND ALL HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
I am now taking (not prescribed) 5-20mg methadone per day as I couldn't cope with some withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone is not available to me in New Zealand & my GP prescribed zopiclone 7.5mg for sleep. What can I do to get off methadone, minimising the terrible heart palpitations & breathlessness that are the only things I can't cope with? Please help as I desperately want off this drug!
See if this doctor can write you a prescription for some Gabapentin for anxiety and general malaise, Requip for restlessness, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose 25-50mg for sleep. It will make withdrawals easier. You can try ibuprofen 600mg for pain. Please don't start taking the any opiates again as it will only throw you back into withdrawals once you stop again, or make you relapse.

Last I did stumble upon a site stating you can give yourself rls permanently from withdrawal, which scares the crap out of me. I was wondering if anyone else had heard or read anything like that before? I'm now on day 38 and while it had decreased some I'm still miserable. I've done all of the suggestions you guys have given me. I take potassium, magnesium, multivitamin, Hylands restful legs, tonic water.
I can't take it anymore First thought when I wake up is to take my suboxone it literally controls my life and I'm sick of it!!! I know withdrawal is going to suck but I'm ready and committed to getting my life back in order. I heard from a friend that withdrawals can last months from long term suboxone use and that alone scares me I don't know if I'm that strong to suffer so long.
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!!
I also failed to mention, I'm taking 1mg of Xanax 3 times a day and Requip for rls and the rls is what seems to come back along with severe lower backpain!!
I agree. I take Requip for my rls. One before bed and I am good for the night.
Is there anything at home I can do to ease withdrawal of fentanyl? Im taking 25mgs a day and im reducing it to half that and hope to be off it in 3 days...
It has been very hard and now Saturday morning I went for laser treatment to stop smoking (today is Monday)...It is a waste of money because I am going through terrible withdrawal symptons more so from the nicotine than the morphine. I guess what I'm asking is how long does the nicotine withdrawal take? I just starting feeling the discomfort last night at 2am when I could not sleep. My legs are very restless and can't keep them still.
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!!!
I was taking 5 a each day up until recently when I got completely tired of takin them an them just doing nothing good for my life so with the few I had left I cut back very quickly from 5 to 3 to 2 to half a day all in one week an I definitely had withdrawal symptoms my question is I'm 2 days now with out taking any I still have chills an can't sleep because I get an overwhelming frustration i believe u guys call that rls well any way since I had started feeling withdrawals while I was still t
Had 8 yrs of fentanyl 4 micrograms and dilaudid 2mg pumped in me for MV acct. QUESTION is how long will the withdrawal be? I'm on day 8 and only 20 hrs of sleep. With the worst case of rls ever. Don't crave the drugs, but the racing thoughts r making me delirious. When does it get better. Snots, squirts and vomiting. Went on for 6 days. Liquid N-Quel works wonders also Amodium AD. Godsend. Need some sleep the creepy crawlies gone and racing thoughts to disappeare, before I go crazy.

I am currently in my 2nd week of withdrawal from a three year addiction to Oxy Contin. My life has fallen apart from my addiction. I am trying to get through this the best I can and it is getting harder instead of easier.. How long do you get rls and the extreme fatigue that follows the next day. I can barely move my body. When will it end and what can u do to get some energy? Thank you...
/rls (but don't get 'hooked' on them! Withdrawal from them can be much worse and truly dangerous, than withdrawal from synthetic opiate painkillers). I don't know anything about Requip except that they have the money to run an ad on TV every 10 minutes --but it's worth a try. I read in another post that Hylands (name of company) makes a natural supplement that helps rls. You can find it at a good health food store or big drugstore -- WalMart apparently carries it.
I've been off the stuff for about a week and a half...the withdrawal wasn't that bad as I expected in terms of the depression. I was down for a bit but my girlfriend is too much fun to be depressed. Anyway, how long does it take for the natural endorphins to come back and is requip good for withdrawal restless legs because I haven't slept much at all. I've been going to the gym and I swear the pain is so exagerated right now it's ridiculous.
I know it's my own fault but I need to get through this battle without family. I was just wondering if there are methods to do so you can get through withdrawal?
I have flexeril for leg cramps...but I wanted rls medicine...if I get a script for requip..and take my ativan, ambien and vistaril...will it ease my withdrawal symptoms?...I have probation in 4 days and am going to get urine testedx this time so I have no choice.......any suggestions...plus if I can go 4 days I would like to quit for good again...somebody help me...I need ADVICE on this matter people I can get thru the diahrea and the sweats ..its the BONE PAIN I cannot stand...
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. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The minerals and vitamins you are taking are definitely a good start. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
The magority of my withdrawal symptoms were gone or barely noticable after 14 days. Depression was longer lasting about 30 days. I thought the withdrawal symptoms were all gone after 30 days but then just last Thursday so a week ago, I began to have tremors in my arms and legs and severe stiffness in my legs. My family doctor said it is Withdrawal Tremors. What I don't understand is why did those 2 symptoms start at the same time and start so late in the withdrawal process?
Vitamin B-6, L-Tyrosine and a mineral complex rich in copper, magnesium and zinc (no iron!). I had ropinerol (generic Requip) to help with the leg twitching, but still had insomnia for weeks. I had to taper off of the vicoprofen and opana. I had only been on the opana for a few days because my doc said it is a slower release and would help me reduce the amount of vico I was taking. The stuff hit me like a ton of bricks, so I knew right then and there I wasn't going that route.
