2107732 tn?1335127983 I switched one addiction for another. It is NOT a safe drug. It also has a built-in anti-depressant which is a double wammy when it comes to detox. W/D symptoms are not a piece of cake. Similar to other opiate meds, but I found the insomnia and minor anxiety lasted a bit longer than with Hydrocodone. But hey, what do I know? I am an addict.

Avatar m tn Addiction is categorzied by maladaptive behavior that is typically out of character for the person, including doing things that are harmful, without any regard for the consequences, in order to get the drug. Addiction includes mental cravings for the meds, where dependency is almost always just physical in nature. It's important for you to determine which category you would fit into, if indeed this is even a concern for you.
Avatar n tn It was given out like aspirin. It is very unfortunate that it became a schedule one drug, with the drug enforcement administration tracking down phjysicians who prescribe it. Valium does degrade situational awareness as well as intellectual acuity, and may interfere with driving safety, although that is more of a problem for the first time user. I have used it (prescribed by a physician) rarely, when under extreme stress, and then only for a day or two, and never became addicted.
Avatar f tn There is no "guaranteed panic killer." Drugs affect different people differently, and some people just don't metabolize certain drugs well. That's why there's so many drugs in the same class out there. Nor does this drug last 8 hours -- short acting benzos might last a half hour, might last an hour, might last longer, it depends on the individual. Only klonopin is a long-lasting benzo, but that also makes it take longer to work and works best when taken regularly.

19164880 tn?1473283520 I have recently finished my tapering off suboxone but have a lot of suboxone left over and am worried about possibly using some every now and then to help manage the extreme pain I experience every day which some days is debilitating. I figured if it wasn't harmful and didn't get me addicted again It'd be fine. My addiction originally was never from drug abuse but a result of pain management drugs given me by the doctor.
