Avatar m tn You should be able to be off the drug completely within about 6 weeks without the side effects of withdrawal and without cravings. If you still need help after that, consider a rehab facility that will control dosages for you during withdrawal. Sudden withdrawal from any nervous system drug (antidepressants, anti-anxiety meds, etc.) can also cause these problems. Always try to wean off slowly. Much better results in the long run and less chance of relapse.
Avatar n tn Valium is addictive, however it remains an excellent drug for anxiety, with few serious side effects, and it is not a respiratory depressant. It works quite well for panic attacks. A certain universe of individuals have a genetic problem in metabolizing the drug because of faulty CYP450 enzymes. If yopu hear a patient say "I used it and it didn't help at all" they probably fall within this category.
199177 tn?1490498534 One very common belief is that drug abusers should be able to just stop taking drugs if they are only willing to change their behavior. What people often underestimate is the complexity of drug addiction—that it is a disease that impacts the brain and because of that, stopping drug abuse is not simply a matter of willpower.
Avatar f tn This stuff is so individual. Sorry you're having a hard time. You're still on a lowish dose of Zoloft, but you are the master of your life and sometimes we just know when a drug isn't the right one. The only thing I can advise is if you've made up your mind, if you know the Zoloft isn't going to be the right fit for you, the sooner you decide to taper off the easier it will be. The longer you take these meds the hard it is to stop.

Avatar n tn I thought I'd add my 2 cents. Lyrica has a low incidence of addiction or drug seeking behavior. It isn't reported to have the euphoric effect in very many people, which drives the addictive response. Also, it isn't a narcotic, per se, and so, although dependence can develop to a degree, it isn't very often a problem - repeat - very often. ANY drug can be abused, however.
Avatar f tn First, understand that side effects are a very individual thing -- those inserts list every side effect reported largely by hospitals (psychiatrists usually don't care enough to report anything and they have no supervision at all nor do they work with anyone else who might prove a check on their incompetence) that the FDA would require to be reported, but it doesn't mean any particular individual is going to get them. Some have an easy time of it, some have a terrible time.
757597 tn?1315801812 If you have been taking them and you are not having any noticable side-effects, then you may be one of those who can do so. One has to weigh the side-effects to the quality of life when taking medications. I took Tramadol for 3 yrs. I could not take it with Effexor due to potential seizure activity. I had previously taken it with Cymbalta, but discontinued the Cymbalta after a few days.
Avatar n tn Klonopin and Xanax are actually quite different medications. Xanax is probably better for this purpose, assuming it works, since it works much faster, whereas klonopin stays in the body longer but has a milder effect at first. The proper way to do this is to go back on the last dose of Effexor at which you felt fine, and taper more slowly, much more slowly.
897400 tn?1303329148 When the opiates are out of the body, the brain has more receptors than before the use of the drug, but only the same amount of endogenus opiates ( endorphines) to fill these receptors. This is why opiate addiction is different from other addictions and also the reason for the fast building tolerance for the drug. (The brain needs more and more drugs to achieve the same effects.) http://www.economicexpert.com/a/Opium.
Avatar m tn there is a detox process for all drugs, even otc meds like motrin, most people are unaware of this, if a individual has the disease of addiction, any chemical they put in their body can be habit forming, i suggest that you call your local vocational rehabilitation center as soon as you can, tell them you need to set up an appointment with someone about getting into rehab while you are waiting for a bed, please google, na meeting locator, attend one meeting everyday while you wait and last but no
Avatar n tn Thanks doctor. The "Rimstar" my wife is taking is composed of RIFAMPICIN 150 mg, ISONIAZID 75mg, PYRAZINAMIDE 400mg & ETHAMBUTOL 275mg. In addition she is also given Pyridoxine HCL 25mg. She feels hypoglycemic and talks irrelevant regarding different home care matters like what care has to be taken for my daughter what about my fathers medicare? blah blah blah.... For your kind information she is diabetic for a year but sugar was under full control for the last 8 months.

I liked them all personally I like weed, coke, meth, pills, caffeine, cigs, I feel like I am missing something oh yeah candy, runts they are so goood.. and sex if it counts but only if I am in love....
1021643 tn?1265573848 I think a few of the after-treatment effects are related to normal aging but definitely not all of them. Interferon is a miracle drug that stimulates the immune system to work harder than normal. It also has the ability to alter several other body systems besides the immune system, like the endocrine system. In my opinion it can cause you to become 'allergic' to yourself, possibly causing some auto-immune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and skin disorders.
Avatar n tn Dear Sir, It's been almost 6 months that I'm taking Tramal 50mg. My friends told me that it's a kind of drug that makes you feel happy and relaxed. They encouraged me to take it. So I took in the afternoon 5 tablets and then after a few hours I started feeling dizzy and then I vomited. I couldn't sleep until morning.
Avatar n tn No, it doesn't have opiates in it. As said, it's a benzo class of drug, which binds to specific sites on the GABA-A gamma-amino-butyric acid receptor, essentially taking over from your normal system by binding to these post synaptic receptors, which causes the pre-synaptic neurons to go dormant, or depopulate from lack of use.
