351846 tn?1273619144 It is supposed to help with sleep created endorphines, supposedly up to 300 percent more. Doses are aroung 3 to 5mgs a night. My wife was taking it for fibromyalgia and had success. She is out of it and complaining of increased pain. Many doctors are unaware of this new dose. You can Goggle it.

Normally it is just nightmares but last night he flipped out and was seeing invisible robots that were attacking him and monsters on the doorway he was crying and really scared i had to hold his eyes with my hands and held him the rest of the night...Does anyone know what I can do to help him. The dr put him on intuniv and now clonidine (which he is on this now only for about 2 weeks) IT was supposed to help for the nightmares.
Avatar m tn Well it is night here and that always feels good to me, making it through the day ok. How are you doing? I am a great fan of distracting yourself as much as you can during wd. Anything will do; even cleaning the tile in the bathroom with a toothbrush. Just something stupid and mindless. Really helps me. Also today I had the image of surfing the withdrawal....

Children who are bipolar often show giftedness in certain cognitive functions, especially verbal and artistic skills (perhaps with verbal precocity and punning by age two to three years). 7.
Avatar f tn I went to the ER and that's they sent me home with. Minimized the night terrors too. Thanks you guys, for the support. It's really hard-but I'm determined. Going to a NA meeting tonight-haven't been to one in 3 years.

Avatar f tn my son has severe violent out busts when he doesnt want to do something he will hit bite kick scream bloody murder say he wants to cut peoples heads off, he has taken this out on adults and my dogs, we have been seeing a specialist which they said he is adhd, they put him on adderall and clonidine, which he does focus better and sleeps better, he has nightmares 3 to 4 times a night, even a few night terrors to where nothing has clammed him.

Psychiatric disorders run in my side of the family, my great grandmother and grandmother both suffered from schizophrenia and my sister and I have both been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I have talked to his pediatrician over and over again about what my son is going through. She keeps telling me it's "just a side effect" of adderall.
Avatar f tn While the worst of the vomiting, cramps and (shudder) unending cold sweats have passed, I remain fevered a full 2 1/2 degrees above my normal temp, and any (ANY) kind of physical activity make me collapse into a shaking, sweating, unpleasant harpy. Sleep is still a nightly ordeal punctuated by some of the worst night terrors I've ever experienced. The OTC anti fever meds aren't helping this. Any suggestion on what I could use to sleep or what might bring my fever down?
1316877 tn?1275204213 If you don't sleep for days on end, for whatever reason, you will hallucinate. I was having wicked night terrors too when I would get like a half hour. I would wake up in a panic, dripping with sweat, freaking out about what just went through my mind. Eventually it subsided though. So uh...I guess my point is, try to get some sleep!
544292 tn?1268886268 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.
Avatar f tn Now I know the doctor will discuss this with you and your husband, but near the end when hes down to extremely low doses (below 2-3mgs) the doctor may find to erase any chance and alleviate any anxiety your husband may have nearing the finish line prescribing opioid WD aids.
Avatar n tn I can't drive, walk, eat, drink, think, and will be out of these vic's tomorrow, haven't slept for 8 days ... shakes, leg terrors, headaches, chills, 95.1 temp, ungodly pain and would rather die than endure this any longer. I have no doc connections because I'm healthy otherwise and new to the area with no insurance and to top it off......I have a dying son to care for, he's in the end stage CF (lung and liver failure) Has anyone ever detoxed at home and if so
Avatar n tn Golden What you are speaking of is rapid detox. You are sedated while you are given shots of naltraxon or an equivalant. It is over in 24 hours. It costs about $3000.00. The success rate, I understand is very low even for a drug treatment. Most people still have withdrawals for several days following the treatment. Im Done At 800mg a day, you can consider yourself a hard core user taking extreme doses. Methadone may be an option for you since I believe your life to be in danger.
Avatar n tn when I tried to get help from my dr on coming off herion, he said there was nothing he could do for me,and his whole addtitude changed towards,me so I went and got on methadone when he found that out he told me it was just as bad as dope, he totally treated me different after that, so I went and found a new dr and told him I was detoxing off methadone and he gave me clonidine, somas, phenergan which is for upset stomachs, naproxen for pain and klonipine for anxiety.
Avatar n tn Ok, I am still chuggin' along. Last night was not very good for me. Who said life was suppose to be fun every night? Anyway, here I sit. To be honest I am getting very impatient! Although my mood is positive my body is starting to feel the effects of depression. The thing is I am a very outgoing person. I need to be around people. I am stuck here in this house unable to work. Some of you might know that I am on workman's comp waiting for a settelment. I don't think that check will ever come.
