Avatar f tn well...i just wrote you a long comment and then hit a wrong button and poof it's all gone. I just wanted to let you know about something that helps me with my anxiety attacks when i get them and just my overall anxiety. you can of course try valium and xanax, but considering that you're in detox it's probably not a great idea. Though if you're having really bad ones, a small scrip of them might be necessary.
Avatar n tn Hi, I have been on Percocet 10/325 along with Neurontin, Flexeril, Valium for about a decade. I was switched to 75 MCG Fentanyl patch 2 weeks ago. Valium was stopped 3 weeks ago. The 1st week I could not sleep at all. Drowsy, though. Shaky, cold. My doctor said it was withdrawal. Now at week 2, I sleep about 2 hours, very shaky, freezing cold, (I never get cold) Absolutely miserable BUT have great pain relief. Must stay in bed.
Avatar f tn Oh that is so good to hear. You give me hope. I would love any suggestions. Thank You!
Avatar f tn I've been on fentanyl for 4 years and Percocets for breakthrough pain. I'd like to try something new to get better results. I was on Valium after my back surgery is that something I can take long term?
Avatar n tn I was on it for a couple of years and I could not get my rx on time one time and it was awful. I was just changed from Fentanyl to MsContin and felt no withdrawls at all... but if I were to stop the MsContin I would go into withdrawal... when you use one drug to get off another it prolongs the ending that was coming all along... there will be some withdrawl. Fentanyl is very powerful and so MsContin... anyway you look at it. Good Luck!
Avatar f tn Hi and welcome to the pain management community. I am on the 50 mcg/hr patch and I change it every 48 hours. For me, I don't have problems remembering to put a new patch on, on time. Perhaps because I experience increased pain the day that the patch needs to be changed and that pain is on my mind throughout the day until bedtime, which is when I change the patch.
Avatar n tn 5 of fentanyl patches and I am so confused. I quit cold at 100 and I know what you mean about jerking all over and the screaming part because I was so desperate I ended up in hospital because I took too many lorazapams and baclofen to try and stop it. I am clausterphopic and they 5 point strapped me down. I was terrified but when I got home 5 days later I am taking 2 valium a day and clonadine but nothing is helping the extreme pain in my lower stomach and back.
8487177 tn?1398341401 Yes the Valium and clonidine will help a lot. But do not take for more than 5 days. You should start decreasing the amount of the Valium after 3 days so you don't change habits. Be strong and safe!!!
Avatar f tn I called my family doctor to advise him of what I was doing and he offered his support and yes, he said the same thing, there is no substitute for fentanyl. All he could offer was another opioid. I have been through withdrawal before so I knew what to expect. The morphine wasn't a major problem but naturally the fentanyl was. I read up on withdrawal symptoms, stopped the patch and increased the water intake to start. Also added vitamins. As many as I could.
635798 tn?1223444631 Did they just give you Valium and cut you off everything else? I really don't know much about Fent.
271872 tn?1238590391 sin my opinion, since you are feeling that bad, the darvocet might not be a bad idea as long as that's all you are taking it for. fentanyl is some strong stuff, as you well know. when i was detoxing, i used valium and zanax to ease the discomfort, and since i am not a 12 stepper, i didn't count it against myself. most importantly, i am 21 days clean today. if it helps you reach your goal, then i think it's ok to do. keep posting and have your support mechanisms in place.
Avatar f tn I've been on Narco's and Valium for about 2yrs now and Tramadol and naperson has been added to the list... I was even on the fentanyl patch which the withdrawals sucked. I just want to know how long it will take for the withdrawals and everything for me if I go cold turkey. I was feeling so bad that I took 100mg of Tramadol. My husband says I have to do it little by little but what's the best way to get off these painkillers???
Avatar f tn So on Monday I am going down to 12 mcg, 8 Norco and 10 mg of valium for 3 days and then 5 mg of valium for 3 days. I already have a high tolerance for valium as I was once addicted to 10 mg of xanax a day due to a poor physician. I went through that withdrawal and it was horrible for 1 week- a week of sheer hell. I think this will be worse. I am asking advice as to what to expect, how long it lasts and will I be ready to go back to school in August.
Avatar n tn BE VERY CAREFUL. Benzodiazepines are contraindicated for use with Sub....unless like these posters...a doc has said it was okay. Using them together cam cause serious respiratory depression. Just be careful, please. My advice would be to find out from the doc what he could safely take.
Avatar n tn ve been on the fentanyl patchs 50mg every 3 days for 3 or 4 years. Valium--on and off for 25 years. The pain dr is cutting my patches to 25mg and slowly tapering me off them. They no longer provide any type of relief, due to being on the same dose for so many years. The dr seemed more concerned about the valium. Today I started taking 15mg istead of 20mg. How long should I stay at 15mg before cutting back to 10mg??
7556888 tn?1391972021 three 20 mg OxyContin per day and two valium for sleeping per day (which I rarely even used). There was no concerns for renewing prescriptions...UNTIL the big change with the recipe for Oxyz. The new tamper proof long acting oxycodone supply to the blood. They made for me getting any form of oxycodone impossible, and I had to suffice with a 50mcg Fentanyl patch every 72 hrs. It was sufficient. Every time I went in my Dr.
Avatar m tn a quick review i was on Fentanyl and over using legally for 3 1/2 years dur to bungled med system, due to most docs sick with H1N1 i went a month of detox with no sleep as wll as doing severe damage to my HIV, anyway i was a peice of cake and posterboy for getting off, it was hell but i had over three years to plan, i am usually shy and i opened up to my mom and dad about personel stuff and how i loved them you know good healing stuff so after 1 month of no med at al for detox ecxept stepdown l
1200968 tn?1291691019 t know about the drug use at all. I tapered off valium after using and abusing valium for 13 yrs. That was a long time ago. In 2007 I had had to w/d from fentanyl pain patches. My dr. got me through that, also. I know you want to do it ct but if you have much more trouble you might want to go the dr. route. This is the first time I've posted to you so there will be a lot of things I don't cover, but I will if you need it. Take Care.....peace....
Avatar f tn If I do the thomas recipe how many mg of valium do I need to take a day if I quit cold turkey, and how many mg of valium if I taper and go from 100 mcg to 50. How long should I taper down to 50? There is no in between because I can only get the gel ones. If I quit cold turkey using the thomas recipe how long do you think I will have withdrawals based on my situation? Basically in a nut shell, which would you chose? Go down half to 50 mcg and how ever many mg u think I need of valium.
Avatar m tn Thanks to all of you that replied, I will take a look at the Thomas recipe and see what it's about. I don't have valium and have never taken it, so I don't want to start but I have been using Imodium AD for cramps and craps and Aleve to deal with pain. So far so good but it's still early and I still need to get my energy back. Thanks again to all.
Avatar f tn I would keep in close contact with your doctor as he can prescribe clonidine to keep your blood pressure from rising to dangerous levels, along with valium, ativan, or klonopin to ease the anxiety, shakes and jittery-ness, and also short-acting opioid rescue medication to help ease the transition off of Fentanyl and you would then wean slowly off of the short-acting opioid and do a short taper off of the ativan and klonopin (you're not going to be on those very long so you shouldn't h
1139726 tn?1260901878 No tremors either. Just spasms inside my muscles. Twiches, if you will.
Avatar m tn I've only been going thru this 2yrs and decided to quit taking all my Rx's, on my own as they were no longer needed... Not so much luck... I just went thru Fentanyl WD's not 4 weeks ago but the Narco's, Tramadol, and Valium helped. I just took 1 10/325 Narco and half of my Valium (so I took 5mg) just to get my headache to go away and make me somewhat functional today. Is the Neurontin an OTC or did you talk to your doctor?
Avatar f tn I went through withdrawal once following a hurricane that shut down our city entirely for two weeks and it was not a pleasant experience. I have clonidine, valium and 4 mg dilaudid I can use to minimize the symptoms, but I am not sure of the proportions to use and how often. It is a weekend so there is no contacting my pain management doctor or pharmacist and I would rather not contact the PM anyway.
5597890 tn?1370629516 New pain doc increased my fentanyl patch to 50. And is trying a different type of epidural and seems more aggressive in helping me get my back fixed than the other who I felt like just a number. has anyone been on these patches ? Why Oxycodone 15 mg if I'm on this super strong patch. I've obviously built up a tolerance to pain meds. I noticed withdrawals when trying to stop the oxycodone even with the patch on. I assume I will be on this stuff for another 2 + months.
Avatar m tn I feel your pain as this is day 4 for me off Fentanyl. Today was a better day, but I have been doing the Thomas diet and the benzos have helped. Knowing how addictive they can be, I tried 5 mg. of Valium last night and didn't sleep as well as I did on 10, but they are invaluable for the first several days. Wean off as soon as possible. All of the amino acids and supplements helped me tremendously to get this far, and I am taking them religiously. Valerian root 1,200 - 1,500 mg.
Avatar f tn I've been on fentanyl patch 25 mcg and 12 mcg combine for 2 years for health reasons . Due to adverse side effects I have come off of them call Turkey . I am on day 5 and it is been hellish to say the least.
