Cold turkey off sugar

Common Questions and Answers about Cold turkey off sugar


Avatar n tn About 12 a day and he stopped cold turkey on Sunday afternoon. What side effects can I expect? Any suggestions on how to help him get through this would be very helpful. Foods to eat or avoid? Tea or herbs? Anything to help him get off naturally. He is also a sugar and caffiene addict. Lots of candy, rockstar and coffee. I did give him a zanax to take with him to work yesterday but he didn't take it until he got home and fell asleep at 7:00 and slept 12 hours.

Avatar m tn Have any of you went cold turkey off your medications? Was it due to a screw up or because you chose to just stop it? How did it effect you and do you still have any side effects from it that have persisted? What medication was it?
Avatar m tn Under no circumstances do you want to stop taking your meds cold turkey. The worst side effect of course would be having a really bad manic episode which may take years to recover from. I say this from personal and professional experience.
Avatar n tn I am so sory for your situation..I am glad that your husband did get off the pills but essentially all he has been doing is trading one for another..Since he can't get suboxone where you are..Then his only choice seems to be cold turkey unless he can wean with another narcotic that is available..I wish i had better advice,..I haven't used heroin but I did go cold turkey off methadone and that is a nightmare..If he could have someone taking care I am sure he can do this..
Avatar m tn I am seeking some guidance as to how long can I expect to be sick and welcome any and all suggestions. This includes thoughts on cold turkey versus a tapering regimen. Thank you in advance for any input.
628981 tn?1260555203 t believe the VA doc (ok, maybe I can believe the VA doc) would just cut you off cold turkey. Were you abusing your dosage? Did he give you anything to counter the withdrawals? I just want to go kick that doc's butt right now. lol Check out the Thomas Recipe on the right side of the screen (click on the link). What worked for me was drinking Gatorade for electrolytes, taking vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, Omega-3 fish oils, and Imodium cause you will have the runs.

Avatar m tn Hi bam531 - I am 42 days clean off hydros. I was on about the dose of your hubby and while I did taper down, I could have gone cold turkey off that dose - it isn't going to be fun and I would highly doubt he could keep being sick from you - it s u c k e d to detox off the 1 hydro I tapered down from so going cold turkey is gonna be pretty obvious.
Avatar n tn I am on day 11, of a 35ml a day cold turkey withdrawl from methadone , and speeking from firsthand understanding of opiate detox, i have quit a 1 to 2.5gram aday herion habit and a 80 to 120mg a day dilaudid habit. and methadone is by far the hardest thing i have ever atempted to quit. now to the point, iwas hoping someone could give me a rough idea or timeline as to when ican exspect to start feeling better. i know thats a very openended question but this draging on much longer then exspected.
Avatar m tn I quit drinking cold turkey after a health scare. I drank very heavily for 10 years, and I do mean very heavily. I did not have the first problem. I don't crave or miss it. I sleep better than I ever have and feel better than I ever have. Is this normal or lucky?
7495625 tn?1417310011 I am on my 5th day cold turkey getting off effexor 75mg after 8 years...Before did this i consulted my dr and told her the method which i was choosing to get off..she was in full support been on them 10 years.Some of the stories on here are so similar..And hope too.
Avatar m tn everyone is different no 2 humans are same , there are baseline estimates , but would need more history to give any kind of feedback on what you might expect as far as how i felt during detox. like is that total time you have ever taken opiates/ or is this a relapse? are there other substances involved past or present, over all health, age etc.
1986130 tn?1326767295 I was taking 8-10 Norcos a day plus 80 mg of oxycontin. I stopped the oxys cold turkey 2 days ago & have been rapidly tapering off the norcos. I took 9 the day b4 yesterday, 7 yesterday, & 4 today. My goal tomorrow is to take 2 or less! I assumed tapering off would make withdrawals more managable but it I'm still having all them!
