Common Questions and Answers about Cold turkey pills


Avatar f tn I hope someone out there can help me. I was injured at work and am beating myself up over all the pain pills I've taken over the past 9 months. Everyday I would take (2-4) vicoden 7.5mg and about 4 perc 10s.
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.
Avatar f tn Just want you all to know that I decided to quit cold turkey. I will be starting tomorrow. I am ready to be free once and for all. I'm so tired. Asking for your prayers. Kinda scared for some reason. Thanks.
Avatar f tn t feel much of anything. I am numb and dead inside. That is why I am stopping all of my meds. ALL OF THEM. Cold turkey. I am stopping Wellbutrin, Cymbalta and Abilify. I am not going to live like this anymore. I just got married for God's sake and I hardly feel any emotion or passion. My doctor doesn't care. He just wants to keep upping the meds. I am tired of it. I have stopped them all. Has anyone done this. What can I expect with regards to emotional changes and such?
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 f tn hi you have been through a lot, you wont die without your script, so try not to worry, you have been through a lot, but you will go into withdrawal, it would be good to come off the lortabs, and it can be done cold turkey, there are things that can help with that, and maybe you can at least find some of them,i dont think taking 5 xanax is any good for you, its not a good benzo with a very short half life and will give you more problems, does your dr. prescribe them and ambien?
Avatar f tn He is having a really terrible day, He does not think he will be able to make it though. He has convinced him self that was taking to many to have just quite cold turkey, I know this is a very painful process, should I be worried?
Avatar f tn Tramadol was my DOC for years and I was taking up to 20-25 pills a day. I quit cold turkey and although it was very difficult, it's not impossible to do. The risk of seizure has been reported in cases where the patient was taking extremely high doses, or quitting and then taking them again at the same level. I don't believe there have been any reported cases of seizure from stopping it cold turkey. But it's always a good idea to get a Dr.
Avatar n tn I have no choice. My dr has cut me loose from her practice. I'll explain later... Right now I just need ideas. I had a seizure in July. Was on adipex, Wellbutrin, Zoloft, and Xanax at that time. I know it's a lot! But my question I need answered is.... Have any of you stopped cold turkey from Xanax? What can I do to relieve some w/d symptoms? I'm leaving for the beach tonight!!! I need answers quick!
Avatar f tn My question is, I have a bunch left and am wondering if I should just cold turkey or taper off the ones I have left? I want to be done and have my husbands support. I have 2 young kids. It is not an option to give the pills to my husband. He thinks I flushed them. I was taking a high amount of oxy 30mg but have weaned down to about 12 the past week or so. Any advice is appreciated!
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 Is it dangerous to just "STOP" Cold-Turkey from 125 mg of Methadone??? I know it won't be pleasant to say the least but is it dangerous to do it cold turkey at my home alone???
Avatar n tn If i do it this way would it be easier when i get down to 1 to 2 pills a day, with withdrawls, or just going cold turkey, would be the same. Please hurry I cant do this anymore.
Avatar n tn t be able to function without them. Anyway, would it be better for me to just gut it out and stop taking the 3 Norco/day cold turkey or should I try to taper down off them slowly? At this dosage what will the withdrawals be like and for how long? Thanks for your input.
Avatar m tn It's day two since I stopped taking pain meds cold turkey. I'm really trying to not think about it. My anxiety is horrible. Is this going to get worse? I would take 10-20 10mg a day for two or four days straight. Be with out for a day or two. Then back on it.
739632 tn?1454261272 I have GAD and this started with a few panic attacks... I read a few terrible cold turkey stories and know its not a good idea and dangerous. Ive felt good, even normal the last few hours, something i havent felt in ages. (Except a headache) I know its only been two days, trying not to get ahead of myself, but so far so good. Yes, I need therapy for sure. Thanks again for your response and advice.
Avatar f tn Congratulations on your choice to quit, I went cold turkey. I didn't take anything for the first month, I can't say what I'm trying now is okay so I won't bother to mention it.
