Clonidine and grapefruit

Common Questions and Answers about Clonidine and grapefruit


Avatar n tn Actually Grapefruit juice can interfere with many meds -- especially blood pressure and heart drugs --- Many use clonidine to help with W/D's and that may also not be good with Grapefruit products. Perhaps someone else has more information on it. Best to you as you try to kick the Norco ------ I would definitely recommend the Thomas Recipe and the other things listed in the health pages. Keep up the good work.
Avatar f tn i've NEVER heard of clonidine being given as a remedy for night sweats....and believe me, i've done from doctor to doctor and done months and months of research from about january to may, when i was at my worst, post surgery....if you truly are having hormonal issues, fluctuating hormones, some perimenopausal symptoms, there are TONS of things out there that can help....but taking clonidine is not something that's typically prescribed OR recommended....
Avatar m tn I w/d from lortab in Feb. I had taken them for five yrs. I had the help of clonidine and three tranzene that I had quartered up. Immodium ( it is a friend )lol for the diahreaha(sp)? will come. Warm (hot) baths, heating pad, otc pain meds, since you are pregnant (congradulations! by the way ) PLEASE, what saved me from my misscarage years ago, was vitamin C !! I drank grapefruit juice poured over crushed ice, oh my gosh, I did so crave it too!! But..........
Avatar f tn In my 3rd week now and feeling really strong. Without the nasty Interferon and Ribavarin this time - I have had minimal side effects and I am so very grateful! My 2 week labs came in today and ALL of them are in normal range... including AST and ALT. Second month of the meds have been ordered and are now on their way so stay tuned for more updates as we knock out these 12 weeks of treatment.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn Hot Epson Salt baths help ease the skin crawling and skin burning/freezing and RLS. DR. Supervised Clonidine and Klonopin will help with the anxiety, RLS and sleep. Though I started withdrawal on a Saturday and Didn't see my Dr till Monday. My Aunt is a RN and supervised my Clonidine and Benzo replacement for Klonopin over the weekend. Start the B Complex with lots of water/ Gatorade/pedilite as soon as possible. This will flush the toxins out quicker. Hop on forums for support.
11045884 tn?1414861982 John's Wort, Vitamin B6, L-Tyrosine, Melatonin, Valerian Root, Kava Kava, Aleve, Advil, gatorade, grapefruit juice, and about 10 ativan pills (1 mg each). I'm hoping that by getting all these drugs and supplies, I might be able to make the withdrawals somewhat bearable, but am I just fooling myself? Will these drugs really make any difference?
Avatar f tn ( laboring could have abrupted us harming both if not killing as I had placenta previa. What's leading them to pheo for me is low am Cortisol 24 hour urine total volume high catecholamine normal epi and norepi total high meta and whatever else very high , I'm on bp meds sweat profusely meds don't control bp headache muscle pain frequent urination everything on the list but weight loss ? But we're not books my dads.
10609801 tn?1412402888 It's just that our CNS is so suppressed by the opiates and as we detox it gets over-activated. I used clonidine during detox (a BP med commonly used in opiate detox) and it really helped with those symptoms. I don't think I could have done it without it as I jumped off a high dose of oxy (150 mg). Keep it up you are doing great !

Avatar n tn I worked my way down to taking 3 per day, decided i wanted to quit this week, b/c I had 4 days off. Well, i had left, and took 1/2 today, b/c I had to go out and handle some businees , and couldn't have otherwise. But to complicate things, I have a bad sinus infection and can't quit coughing. i felt so achy, when I went to my mother's house tonight, she gave me 2 more. I took a half, then i took another 1/2 about 1 1/2 hours ago. i'm ok now, but i feel like a failure.
544292 tn?1268886268 Please make yourself at home and snuggle down. It will be a bit bumpy, but worth it!
Avatar m tn I've got arthritis in my hips and can honestly say that narcotics don't help much with bone pain. Naproxen (Aleve) works pretty well at a prescription dose. Ask your doctor about Aleve or any other prescription anti-inflammatories. Cox-II inhibitors like Celebrex are another option, but after all the bad press they received a few years ago your doctor may not even want to entertain them. Worth a discussion anyway.
8271896 tn?1478113719 Lopramide,cimetadine(Tagemet) Robotussin regular cough gels and grapefruit juice. You have to see the yidio to understand it all, I know he talks fast but he speaks the truth. I think we have more fear of w/drawals!Here is the web address
1210142 tn?1266080631 They sent me in for chest x-rays, EKG and everything was ok but they put me on .1 mg Clonidine for BP. Scared as heck I started on a plant based diet 10 months ago and haven't looked back. In 2 months I was off the Clonidine and Lisinopril with a baseline BP of 115/65. On your case I think this diet would be perfect as it will reverse the blockages and eliminate the need for stents and/or bypass surgery.
Avatar n tn My answer for handling this much turmoil for sooo long is GOOD VITAMINS AND HERBS, complements of my mother's pushing them down my throat or else ways. I start detox May 15 and I just found out grapefruit essential oils are suppose to be helpful with drug/alcohol additiions. The herbal essential oils are to calm,relax,help depression and lots more. Make sure to go to the web page and read it first!! I know Im trying it.
Avatar n tn It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement. Anyone with any help or suggestions I would REALLY appreciate it.
