Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar f tn But I would be very careful about prescribing benzos for outpatient withdrawal---- they are respiratory depressants, and if the person starts using opioid agonists in combination with benzos, there is significant risk for overdose and even death. Clonidine, on the other hand, doesn't have the respiratory depressant actions. It does, though, lower blood pressure-- so it should only be used in people who are adequately 'hydrated'-- i.e.
Avatar f tn Two months ago I experienced an overdose on excedrin, clonidine and benadryl and recovered. At the time, I was informed of a potential heart murmur. Lymph nodes have been tender and large for years but one has become hard in the last month. I occasionally have moments where I loose a couple seconds and get startled. I get random, painless muscle spasms quite regularly. I normally have lower blood pressure floating around 120/55.
Avatar n tn Once you get down to the end or once you stop taking them, that's when you will want to use the clonidine patch to help with withdrawal symptoms you might have. Once you taper w/d symptoms should only last a short time and should not be severe if you have any at all. xoxo- D. Oh, and your friend who has detoxed like 15 times- does she work in the medial field? Doctors and researchers do crazy things to themselves sometimes for their own purposes.
Avatar f tn Been on the patches for over 6 months and was not prepared for this horrible detox! My kind doctor gave me clonidine to help counteract the bad feelings and uncontrollable body shakes. Glad i have it, but im taking much more than he said bc the symptoms are so bad! I think everyone should be able to detox IN-PATIENT at a hospital. Im temped to cut a piece of fentanyl patch for some relieve. Any suggestions, my new brave friends? How much longer will this last???
1162610 tn?1262832616 A tramadol overdose can be fatal. Overdose symptoms of a tramadol overdose may include drowsiness, shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, extreme weakness, cold or clammy skin, feeling light-headed, fainting, or coma. Tramadol may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for. Tramadol should never be given to another person, especially someone who has a history of drug abuse or addiction. Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it.
Avatar f tn Is this dose I'm taking going to cause overdose and do y'all have any tips for withdrawal help? I can do this I know I can. Thank you for your help.
Avatar n tn Here comes the first hand fear of these pills that I have had. On July 4th of 07, just a few months ago, his Uncle died of an accidential overdose. He had slept most of the day and his wife heard some strange noises coming from the bedroom. She immediatly knew something was wrong. She called their two grown boys, that lived on the same acrearage so not far. They came up and he hemeoraged right in from of all of them and died as the ambulance arrived.
Avatar f tn Keeping bery hydrated is very important. Imodium will help with tummy issues and will actually help with some of the withdrawal symptoms. The Thomas recipe gives a list of supplements that will help with the symptoms. Valerian Root is an all natural supplement that helps a lot with anxiety. Ibuprofen will help with any aches and pains. It's not a walk in the park but you can do it.
10413541 tn?1410361123 I forgot to sounds like you need a new doctor. Most doctors will try to help if someone is trying to get off the opiates! Try one more time, call and explain that you've learned that clonidine helps with withdrawal and craving symptoms. Google "clonidine-opiate detox" and you should be able to find out what mg you need and how many times daily. Maybe your doctor isn't familiar that there are a few things that will help.
Avatar n tn The doses have always been very low but I can't do it anymore/ Friday other doctor gave me clonipin, phenergen clonidine, and lomotil for withdrawl. I don't even know what day it is or how long its' been because I have hardly slept. I think the clonidine is lowering my BP too much I have zero energy,can barely move around during the day. My daughter is here to help me. I thrash at night don't sleep till around 6am then for a few hours finally. Can you tell me about Buprenorhine.
Avatar f tn Lacking the reputation of heroin, many youths and novice opiate drug users engage in oxycodone abuse without understanding the consequences associated with its abuse, such as a heroin-like addiction potential and the threat of a fatal overdose. Using Percocets can cause nausea, weakness and slowed breathing. Percocets can cause impotence, enlarged prostate, and decreased testosterone secretion, thus decrease sex drive.
Avatar f tn Clonidine is a BIG help during detox. I dont know if I'd have made it thru methadone detox if I hadn't gotten a prescription for it. It really helped with the withdrawal symptoms and the "uneasy" feeling. Personally, I would try those before I would get into the Subs. Subs are another beast you'd just have to conquer. Great job on five days though!! :) Just keep pushin on.
Avatar n tn 75mg tablets, and whilst that's not an overdose, it's a huge increase for me. So about ten days ago I decided just to take one and a half tablets and start weaning off again. I'm now getting skipped heartbeats and last night a racing heart (I have beta blockers so was able to take them to calm it down) and a feeling that my body was just really 'lively.' Anyone had anything like this?
Avatar m tn People make a big deal of combining benzodiazepines with Suboxone, but combining them with opioid agonists like oxycodone is much MORE dangerous. Many overdose deaths occur when people combine opioids and a benzo-- such as Valium, Xanax (alprazolam), or Klonopin (clonazepam). I have been through withdrawal many times myself-- thankfully not recently-- and I have tried to help literally hundreds of people deal with the symptoms of opioid withdrawal.
Avatar f tn Ask your doctor about Britoflex/Lofexidine (if in the UK), or Clonidine (if in the USA), or Catapres (if in Australia), this will help your symptoms no end. Im so sorry to hear about your fiance and boyfriend, that is so unlucky for it to happen twice. It pains me that you had to go through that. Many addicts over estimate their addictions and take way too much to compensate. Id reccomend if you are serious about getting off drugs, you should plan a detox rather than maintenance.
Avatar f tn I requested the dose not be taken above 90mg(in Alberta all patients are started on a 40mg dose,increasing by 10mls every 3 days until the right dose is reached to stop w.d symptoms,but also not cause any unwanted side effects of euphoria.After I completed my methadone program I did not seek continued help or supports as I felt I was no longer at risk.Silly me.I was fine for 8 mnths. Then one day i got a pretty nasty headache, care of a pretty heavy emotional load I had no way of anticipating.
Avatar f tn Can I start the clonidine without feeling withdrawl symptoms or do I have to wait to atart initial dose like suboxone?
Avatar f tn I know it will be impossible since the tempation is there. He had gone thru the withdrawal symptoms, for about 4 days, then they go and prescribe them again. They insist he needs to do it slowly, Can someone explain why this is? He tells me he wants to quit but the behavior is still there. I manage his pills giving him only the dosage the dr. prescribed but he has managed to steal the pills. Like I said the temptation is there and as long as they keep prescribing it he will not defeat it.
Avatar f tn I don't want to tell my family and go to rehab not because I'm scared to get in trouble, but because I have lost a brother to a cocain overdose and it would break my family's heart to know another family member is addicted to drugs. The worst part now is that I am so depressed if I don't take any of these pills everyday, I'm not sure how to deal with my emotions without them anymore, I don't event deal with my emotions I just use these drugs to cope with them.
Avatar n tn My MD will give me ultram (I know I should not take this but I will use minimally and gives me no buzz - just helps with symptoms) and clonodine. I also have klonopin as well. I have 2 kids and I feel like when I take the percocet I am a better and more fun more. I like the buzz and like to do more fun things with them. I am really afraid that when I am clean I will not feel that same way. I guess I am just looking for some reassurance with all of this. Can I get through this?
Avatar n tn When the drug adderol or any of the other drugs listed here are prescribed for the treatment of ADHD, what are the guidelines for increasing the dosage versus no increase, and what are the reasons for the increases? 4.What are the side affects to observe from overdose and or underdose? 5.What are some of the indicators to observe to alert, that the dosage is the right one, versus indicators to alert you that it is the wrong one?
149087 tn?1258457420 The effect on the latter is apparently much like that of clonidine whereas the mechanism in reducing cocaine craving (as seen in self-administration of cocaine in lab aminals &c.) appears to be a newly-discovered pharmacological effect. Another one is Clonidine. Relax, baclofen is a great drug and few if any side effects. If you are suspicious of an answer, just google it, I found this at the reliable,... another good one is rxlist.
Avatar m tn Please go to the Health Pages - (Upper right side of this sheet) and look for a post titled "Members Experiences Coming off of Suboxone" It may help you decide. All the best.

Avatar n tn I had no depression, minimized fatique and was able to treat cramps with immodium, burning skin with clonidine. Remember...suboxone withdrawals are lower in intensity and longer in duration than any other opiate. It is also important that your Suboxone doctor prescribe clonidine to ease some of the withdrawals. During your withdrawal period, I cant express enough the importance of exercise to start training your brain to re-learn how to produce adequate endorphins.
