Now, after reading all of your posts about klonopin, i'm putting 2 and 2 together. Yeah, i'm scared. Hope with time, i will get off this stuff. Last night, could't even stand myself so i took a dose. Felt much calmer afterwards. Had a heart to heart talk with my 2 older teen sons. My youngest is 3, so he was asleep. Didn't feel it was the right time to tell the boys i was fighting an addiction, but we talked about our familly history for drugs and alcohol.
After not sleeping for six weeks, I really was desperate, so I started taking the Trazodone and Klonopin I was able to start getting 2 or 3 hours of sleep at night, but it took 3 months to taper off the Klonopin, and I felt sick the whole time, and another few months after I stopped taking the Klonopin to start feeling "Normal" again.
Then I went to a phycologist and talked to her about my eating dissorder and then told her about the tramadol and how it helpped me to curb my hunger. She said that she couldnt help me and that I need to contact a rehab center but it was so hard for me to get up enough nerve just to tell her. No one can help me. Im not the typical addict you know. Im well educated Im married with a small child and we are living in upper class america the big house and everything.
I am 26 and take 0.5 klonopin every night for sleep. I was taking 3 a day and managed to get down to 1. I have been trying to stop this medicine for over 9 months but have found it very hard I have gotten myself down to 1 every night but after a few weeks it's the same withdrawns can't sleep pounding heart shaking & nervousness-panic attacks. I have tried to stop cold turkey that is impossiable. I found out that I was 5 weeks pregnant and recently had a miscarriage.
I got down to 1/4 mg of Klonopin and I quit last Friday from there. I had been on a regimen of 1/2 mg Klonopin for at least a month. This is a medication to watch. I took it exactly as perscribed and I have to admit that I just got the craves. Went up on the boards and I am calming down. Don't know how long this will last but I need to get off this.
Thanks for the reply.. I have a script waiting at the pharmacy for tramadol and flexeril.. I also have klonopin on hand.. I do nto get everything from a DR. but the Tram, and Flexeril are prescribed. Ny drug of choice is oxycodone.. I have heard mixed things about tramadol, espeacially that it isn;t addictive and or a narcotic.. Like I said, just what I have heard.. I have never taken it.. I will be using the tramadol to keep the withdrawls from happening if it is possible..
i am on tramadol now for 6 years or more and my dosage went to 10 or 11 pills 225mg per day and 10 or 11 clonazepam 2mg both together i used to be happy it took me when i was depressed feeling down to another mode , now i am married and about to have a kid i need to stop not for his sake but really for my sake am 30 years old it started couple of month ago to effect my work and my relation with my friends i ended up lonely ....i need to stop both ..
So I'm hooked on tramadol, without which I can't really walk with my back and the detox is hell, and living in a country where I can get them cheaply, without a prescription, at about 50 locations within a 5 minute walk to my house. Good news: they do have AA here! Bad news: NOT IN INGLES, and my lazy butt hasn't learned Spanish yet. I've tried quitting cold turkey a few times and haven't made in more than 2-3 days. I'm still not drinkin though.
I am on Tareg for blood pressure, from specialist....then my GP put me on Wellbutrin and klonopin .... which my specialist took me off and said take Xanax only with the Tareg. Any comments much appreciated.
The new doctor gave me a schuedule to try and wean me off the tramadol. I have to take seven pills for a week, then six for a week and so on. She also gave me Klonidine and Zanax if I feel the withdrawals. Has anyone had the withdrawals from weaning off doing this way?
I remember when Tramadol first came out. I had successfully managed to get myself off of Vicodin and then Methadone because I didn't know what Methadone was at the time. Kind of similar to this scenario with Suboxone. They convinced me that they were going to wean me off of Methadone to get off of 4-5 Vicodin a day. That's like killing a fly with a hammer. Six months later I had a very serious addiction to Methadone that took about 2 months to get over cold turkey by myself.
I am happy for you, and pulling others together in here. I do have a question...because I have used tramadol in between scrips..(but they never stood a chance)...and then I would get hydros and quit the tramadol... I am on Day 28 from 18-20 hydros a day....and I took 3 tramadol on day 4 and day 5...which did not seem to help with anythings...so I quit taking the tramadol...and had to side effects. I was just wondering, you said that your took tramadol in place of opiates...
But with the Ambient and and antihistamine I use for sleep, and the Klonopin for anixety...is just making me feel dense/thick/groggy during the day, really negating the good feelings that I would had otherwise felt from the major tramadol reduction. Yea, just substituting drugs...tho cutting back on the tramadol addiction which is good. Next will be the Klonopin.
I have been on Benzos (Xanax, klonopin, Valium) and Methadone for 9 years now and no adverse side effects! The doctors urge people to keep them apart because you can overdose if not careful. But, you can overdose on almost anything with Methadon and I have a bottle of tramadole here with 500 in it and it's just trash cause I know it can put you into withdrawals!
) I was on cymbalta for a while when I was still taking the other drugs (xanax and tramadol - and of course, having me on tramadol AND cymbalta was extremely risky - why didn't my Dr. tell me that??) and honestly, I have no idea if it was helping me. Actually, what I really think is that it probably didn't help me because I never gave it a chance. I was too busy taking exceedingly high amounts of both the benzo's and the opiates to notice any benefits.
Because you have abused the Klonopin, you probably should steer clear of it all together. Tapering requires doctor guidance and supervision, please do not attempt it on your own. I agree 100% with Ben. I too, have panic disorder, and have been on short acting benzos (Ativan, Xanax), and only have ever taken them "as needed" or PRN. When my PD was REALLY bad at one point, I WAS needing to take them every day for many months, until therapy and an antidepressant started helping.
I was almost clean off of everything and then I relapsed and started taking a ton of tramadol and it became worse and worse. I can't imagine what you feel at only 4 but can you imagine what you would feel coming off 20? Trust me it is not gonna get any easier. I agree with Overopiates not to be rude but I dont think you are ready to quit I think you are afraid to not have your tram so you face withdraw. Time to decide your life or purgatory via Tramadol...
5mg because I knew in my heart that the scale had started to turn the other way and i was taking them for 25percent pain and 75 percent because of my addiction and it has really sucked. And now this yesterday about the klonopin. I feel as though he could have at least let me taper down, because I dont want to have a seizure over this.
Good Morning Tramadol Warriors, Welcome to the room, snuggle down and make yourself comfy. You can quit tramadol. You can stop. You can recover. I believe in you!
Hi Tramadol Warriors, Many people have come here for many years, giving support and getting support. Because I still believe that Tramadol is unique in it's ... terror and torture of humans, this thread continues. The people who can understand what you are going thru are the people who have kicked it and there's people here who come back to lend a hand. You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
You can do this tramadol warriors! You can beat this! You will do this!
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
Over the years of recovery and reading about others, seeing others recover the main thing I have learned is that everyone's life is better without being a slave to Tramadol. You might be stuck and scared right now, but you can make the decision to get yourself off the hamster wheel of Tramadol dependency and even addiction. You don't have to live that way. There's lots of people here to help.
Hi Tramadol Warriors, I know you can do this. People are here to help you. It's going to be ok.
Understanding is essential! You can do this. And yes. Eventually you will heal!
Have seen several people have seizures when TAKING tramadol. AND, every tramadol related seizure I saw did not seem related to how high a dose the person was taking; RATHER was in instances where someone markedly INCREASED their dose. I think the confusion is in that seizures are common when withdrawing from sedatives (alcohol, barbiturates, benzodiazapines etc). Rare in opiate withdrawal.
Hi and Welcome Tramadol Warriors, Please come on in and make yourself comfy. All are welcome.
Hi Everyone and Welcome, Come on in and make yourself cozy. You can do this!
I have been so sick since Friday and it didnt help I ran out of klonopin on the same day and didnt refill it either. I can't sleep with out them so imagine how fun my nights have been. I had a refill delivered today and immedietly took 3 because I could not function. I had several customers at the house and work going on and could not afford to be so sick for an undetermined amount of time.
Hi Friends, Welcome! Please make yourself at home ... snuggle down by the fire and hang on. It's a bumpy ride.
