I started after after having dual wrist,hand surgeries and now arthritis. Taking 20 MG per day for pain management. However, the last two months I have had to have more during the month. Therefore, ending up in withdrawals until my script gets renewed. Either I refill in 9 days OR live with the pain or continue this and stay off for good. I feel like crap and still able to work though. Any ideas peeps? God bless us all!
I returned to methadone as was best option during pregnancy.(fortunately baby had no withdrawal symptoms). Haven't used heroin for about 5 years but so scared of withdrawal, thought i would be on one of the above for life. Baby now 19mths & have been withdrawing slowly so can still fulfill parental (single). I am currently on 4mg and have conflicting info regarding what to do next.
i would like for someone to give me some common withdrawal symptoms of someone who has been drinking a half of gallon of liguor for the past week everyday but has stopped for the past three days
Has anyone experienced severe stomach pain during withdrawal from hydros. It feels like an ulcer. Besides not sleeping, that has been the worst part.
I'm physically dependent due to 9 surgeries that resulted in a bad outcome and left me with terrible joint pain, nerve pain and RSD. I've never taken more than my prescription called for and never misused my meds and I've never run out of my script early. I'm not saying you are addicted but you need to look at why you ran out early. Even though all my doctors think I need the medications, I've chosen to taper off a ton they had me on.
I've had to be on pain medicine on and off during my first pregnancy, and my current pregnancy, and I was on it continually during my 2nd pregnancy. I'm due any day with this pregnancy and everything is fantastic. My 3.5 y/o daughter and 20-month-old son are both PERFECT. neither were born dependent..they had no withdrawals, no delays, no breathing or eating issues...
I am in so much pain right now I dont know if I can last it out.I am sick to my stomach,sweats and chills are back and the pain in my legs is unreal,plus RLS. The only thing keeping me going is the support and strength I have been given by a very special person I have met on here.Dont want to let her down.
Shortness of breath and stomach pain. Last Thursday and Friday I had very bad headaches and if I was lying down and got up I would have very bad head pains and my vision was sometimes blurred for upto 20 seconds. Saturday through to now (currently Tuesday) the headache has gone. But, I am experiencing discomfort in the stomach / belly area, fast breathing of short breaths, fatigue, vomiting, loss of appetite, feeling full, constipation and diarrehea and generally feeling very tired.
I am going through serious withdrawal. I suffer chronic back and hip pain and my doctor can't seem to find the source of the pain. So I started to medicate myself. I started off with oxy 30s. then I started dating a guy who also is in chronic pain and when I would start getting "sick" from not being able to get the 30s he gave he some of his oxymorphone, opana, and I don't want to continue taking his meds anymore.
Just discovered my daughter is additcted to hydrocodone , take 6 daily as an average 10 mg. along with Bontril,Ambien, And zanaz. She is 27, not in good health with juvinile diabetes since her teen years. What are the dangers she facing if she decides to go "cold turkey" with this withdrawal. Thank You s much in advance for any info I may recieve.
People get very dehydrated during withdrawal and that accounts for many symptoms. So...start drinking as much as you can!!
a person creates a bubble to starve off the pain. A person does a great deal of soul searching during this time and it is possibe when he is finished he will love you more then ever. So give him the space, but don't stand too far away...he will need you soon.
The winter is the worst time for my head pain and the pain associated with the cold is unbearable. Taking only 2 today has done nothing for the pain and I feel like crap. Haven't eaten yet today. No appetite. Please, any advice is helpful I know I want to taper off, but I didn't want to take this big of a cut in meds.
That is a very difficult thing. Pain is usually a very good motivator. So is Euphoria. When the pain out weighs the euphoria one starts to consider breaking the cycle. Unfortunately the pain being eliminated by the drug is a driving force. Then the addict associated the RELIEF of th pain to the drug instead of the drug being the CAUSE of the pain. SOoooooooo what to do? Break the cycle. Many have to hit bottom to do that.
See how it affects you before taking during the day. I would break in half when I had to take during the day. It is non-addictive. Most doctors should prescribe without an issue. Try melatonin, sleepy time tea and once your RLS calms down or goes away Benadryl can work (it can make RLS worse) for sleep.
The past few days I have had this constant burning in my stomach and it seems to hurt more when I eat anything. I have had the stomach pains associated with the withdrawal but this is different. It literally burns all of the time. Just wondering if any one has had this before or knows anything about it. Wish me luck. I will keep posting to let everyone know how it is going and to offer any help that I can. Thanks!
thanks for the advice I didn't know what to think and im starting to come unglued just thinking about the pain and now withdrawing. the pills make the pain stop or at least lessen. but now after over 6 years of this I feel like it must be as much as a problem as a help. I just hurt so much without them. hopefully ill figure a way around this pain. til I can get it filled again. a weeks flu should be the least of my concerns really.thanks for your help S.
but your pain level will more than likely decrease after you are totally off pain meds for 60-90 days. Just be aware...initially....during your taper or cold turkey....that your pain level will actually increase for a bit. I promise....it will level out when you start producing your own brain chemicals that help us to fight pain. I live with pain, too, but found after about 90 days I could realistically re-evaluate my pain levels. I'm not the only one that says this either.
zero sleep, sweats, severe stomach pain, headache, neckache and backache, diarrhea, nausea. I cold-turkeyed it as I wanted off Ambien ASAP. Was up to nearly 20 mgs a night every night for sleep for two months. Getting zero hours of sleep day after day can make you feel like you're going to die, but remind yourself that it WILL get better.
There are supplements that will ease the withdrawal symptoms. Try and do some light exercise such as walking and keep yourself busy...reading, do a jigsaw puzzle, etc. It is also very important to keep your self hydrated. Push fluids such as Gatoraide and maybe some chicken soup. Anything to keep the fluids in your body. with running to the bathroom as you are, you are losing Potassium so you need to keep that in check. Please hang in there and keep posting.
I've gone through withdrawal from stopping other medications (Vicodin for chronic pain) and know how horrible it can be. I know that Wellbutrin increases the chance for seizes and I don't want to risk one by stopping the Zoloft cold turkey. I have to take anywhere from 5-8 Tylenol PM to fall asleep now and I drink 1-4 cups of coffee and 1-2 Red Bulls a day to make it through an 8 hour workday.
4 days and yes from tramadol I'm experience opiate withdrawal. Not the SNRI withdrawal but an opiate type (I've had that before). Sweating like a pig, skin is hurting, sleep is hard, chills. I went to physical therapy regardless - I have xanax but it's not touching the part that ***** the most (the sweat, shakes and restless leg). It's not the worst by any means but it's obvious I'm not feeling the best and I have a lot going on. Oh and sneezing is rapid firing.
i have been taking lortab for over three years for arthritic knee pain. i just recently lost eighty lbs. (and still going) and found that i no longer need the lortab for pain control. i am also on ultram er 300 mgs daily. i recently (about a month ago) started weaning myself off the lortab and the ultram. everything was going fine until about two weeks ago.
Cramping and stomach pain. I'm taking imodium but is there anything else to ease the stomach?? As for finding this forum I kind of found it on accident but glad I did. I know it's already helped talking to people and getting all the great advice. Great job on quitting yourself. How long did it take to get over the main symptoms and stuff??
Im 19, and since i stated my period at 11, i've had bad carmps but i noticed at around 14 that the first day and sometimes the second day of my period, i get really really bad rectal pain. I dont normally get back pain or regular stomach cramps and i dont get pain during bowel or urine movement. I do have heavy bleeding around the first 2 days of my period w/small clots. Could i have endometriosis? Also, if you have endo, could you get heavy implantation bleeding?
And I allowed myself a taper (that was about 2 weeks?) and then I went into cold turkey withdrawal. Even during the taper, I did not realize I was in withdrawal. I thought I had the flu. So the last 8 days, (during whihc I have had Zero drugs except klonopin for anxiety) it goes back and forth from very very very bad to "oh wow, I remember feeling GOOD!!" and it does so fairly rapidly and I have to be frank, it's scary.
Today, I was curious about how long does it take to detox and didnt see any comments about Clonidine. If anyone can get your hands on it, it is a life-saver during the withdrawal period. Last time I only took it a few days. a week tops. I would pop one every now and then if I felt jittery. It is not a controlled substance and there is NO risk for addicton to this medication (Clonidine). I am suprised it is not more widely discussed or known about.
