Avatar m tn i have no insurance and am under threat of divorce if i am found out. i have clonidine and flexeril left over from my heroin detox in the past. no doctor, no insurance, methadone clinic to far away. just wondering if i can do a quick taper with about 200mgs of oxy and hydro (about 100mgs each) while taking clonidine then after i run out just continue taking the clonidine and flexeril for about 5 days or so.
Avatar m tn Think I'd rather have the shoulder pain than this. Taking vit. sups. and drinking lots of water. Thanks for the kind words and help.
Avatar n tn Usually, I know when I will be drinking because hubby and I will make plans to go out and such. What I do is not take any of my meds, except the ortho cept which is my birth control! HA, the day before, and sometimes the day after I drink. So if I know I will be drinking on friday night, I won't take any meds at all on thursday, and none on friday, and then depending on now much I did drink, none the following day.
406036 tn?1216192161 Plus when I was using vicodin I would get very dehydrated and instead of drinking water I would drink like 50 pepsi's seriously I would go through a 12 pack a day.. I guess I had two addictions. Vicodin and Pepsi (man I miss that) as much as I hate to admit it!!! So a couple tips that got me through was... Excedrin,Klonopin,Flexeril,Ambien, and a **** load of fluids!! Of course not all those medications in the same day...okay I am done ranting soooo until tomorrow night..SUPERBOWL...

217229 tn?1192766004 I'm dizzy and sleepy in the daytime, but I take other things like Vicodin 750, Klonopin, Flexeril and Ambien, and Paxil. I gained weight with the Diabetes, so I can't tell. But I loved carbs before all of this.
Avatar m tn Yesterday around 11a, I took a 5mg Flexeril and boy did it do wonders. After a brief nap, most of my pain greatly subsided. The following hours, about 10p, I did see an uptick in stiffness but nothing compared to the pain before the Flexeril. I know Flexeril has an unusually long half-life, about 18 hrs. I've been invited to a small get-together this evening and i'm wondering if Id be okay having a mix drink and/or a beer, or if I should refrain?
Avatar f tn Not sure of cause. Severe muscle cramping and contractures in legs, feet, hands and neck. For past 2 months,and 3 to 4 x nightly. Only one night without the cramping. I drink lots of fluids. Calcium, sodium and potassium levels ok. Have increased potassium foods intake and started on calcium supplements on my own. I have them during the day when I sit in certain chairs, but not as severe as the ones I get at night. Have them while in swimming and getting out of the pool and while driving.
983008 tn?1329929430 Also if you have an accident in most States on Baclofen it is your fault even if another car hits you. Any of the drugs with sedating qualities are considered DWI the same as drinking and driving.
Avatar n tn There must be something I could take besides klonopin to relax my head and jaw. Flexeril? I kind of like the fact that my head changed shape. I am just concerned that I am not stable on what I am taking and I would like to get a job.
417971 tn?1237146307 It has been a few days, I finally had the courage and am down to 10mg of methadone, had a little problem sleeping last night but am doing good!! Maybe another drop soon, I'll wait it out a few more days and then do it again. My kids are gone for spring break, but not long enough for me to just go cold turkey....I want this over!!
1415174 tn?1453246703 I would suggest starting a journal of when your'e having them and what your eating, drinking, supplements, and activities your involved in.
Avatar m tn I have been having terrible bladder and stomach spasms for years. I have been diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis, however I am not sure why that would cause my stomach to spasm also. They spasm so much you can actually see my shirt move if I am laying flat. I am at a loss as to what to do. They have gotten very bad over the last two weeks. I am urinating 20-30 times a day. Everything seems to irritate it. I feel like there is a balloon in my stomach and bladder that is about to burst.
Avatar n tn If you think its gonna be bad...its gonna be bad! If your anxiety gets bad and bp rises..take an ativan. I would try and save the xanax for sleep. By tomo you will have muscle cramps esp in your legs..the flexeril will help with that..and lots of hot baths. And of course you will need the immodium too! Take it as soon as you first get a tummy ache..before you start having bathroom problems. Keep posting so we can help you as much as possible. I have been where you are..
Avatar m tn Mental duress may also contribute to the development of disease by encouraging unhealthy lifestyle choices that increase heart risk-such as drinking, smoking, overeating, and not exercising. Negative emotions may begin to affect risk factors as early as one's teens.
Avatar n tn a girl had gotten hold of her parents meds, she passed them around. they took it like candy and were drinking, too. several of them died. it is potent, and it works like skipper said.
Avatar m tn i just copied this info from the doctor forum on addiction See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter.
439522 tn?1214954789 My fiance and I are using this now and within 5 minutes of drinking it, our wd symptoms subside. We are detoxing from methadone, tomorrow is our last dose @7mg. We go ct from there. It requires a certain amount of determination to kick these opiates...but we can do it. This forum is priceless, the support and compassion is overwhelming at times. Everyone is great, please post often as it helps very much, Best of luck, once again, for physical, mental and emotional wd symptoms...
Avatar n tn I found that drinking makes the pain stop. Its bad, I know, but 3 glasses of wine and I don't notice anymore... I have been drinking each night so I don't feel it. I use the Cortizone cream during the day. I have a cold washcloth and frozen veggies on my crotch now. The skin outside hurts all around and the vaginal opening stings and its red sometimes and pink sometimes and it does not hurt to pee and my discharge is the same as it always is...
Avatar n tn Now I am going cold turkey and all I have is some vitamins, and flexeril. The ortho doc put in Ultram for me. Should I take it. Will it help me with the w/ds. Bottom line - my reg. doc was not in. New doc wanted to be a **** and said no meds. Go cold turkey and deal with it. I asked if there were any non-narcotic meds to take (clonidine ect.), he said nope. Anybody have any Idea's. I need them. My wife understands how bad this is going to suck for me now.
Avatar n tn someone who takes 2 soma a day as RX-ed is not in addiction territory and most would not have an issue...but an addict may so it is not worth it...flexeril is much safer.
1251152 tn?1269606444 The pain radiates from side to side and sometimes it "clenches" if that makes sence. I have not had a pain free day since 1992 (except while using) they have done laproscopic exploritory and scopes down my throat. I have been a test dummy for pills that I cant even pronounce and I'm just tired of the "well we have checked and found nodules and ulcers that can be controlled by pain meds" Thats how I got here to begin with.
Avatar m tn pain in urethra burning sensation in hands and feet chest pain, weakness lack of energy all over weakness anxiety the pressure in head seems to come from mid back where it sometimes seems to burn on each side of the spine hair loss sometimes its hard to swallow alot of pressure up at the top of the esophagus and diaphragm area - working out makes things worse as the ehad pressure gets worse - drinking makes it worse flexeril is about the only thing that helps at all.
Avatar n tn I was on Morphine and Vico for 12 yrs. You have not been a long term user. If you feel bad take a hot bath and soak. By day 5 I was ate gym swimming laps( maybe just too keep from jumping out of my skin But I was there. Hang tough it will be over soon and remember the lessons the pills have taught you. If you can find Ambien it will help some with sleep. Distractions such as music at night has also helped keep my mind from racing too much. I am day 9 c/t and feeling pretty great.
Avatar n tn I was transported to the hospital. Of course, everything became normal and I was released with a scipt of flexeril. (they are claiming that I am feeling all of this due to the sternum injury) Today, an hour after taking my wellbutrin, I attacked again. This was the worst one yet. I actually felt like my throat was closing up. I made it into the business I was outside of and they gave me water. The drive home was very weird (I was a passenger) I felt disconnected from myself. It was very scary.
147426 tn?1317269232 I shifte my weight onto my right foot and lifted my left foot up to nudge a bottom drawer closed. There was an instantaneous explosion of pain in my right ankle and it dropped me. I fell backward and hit my head on the tile floor. Just hard enough to get a sympathy-worthy goose-egg, but not hard enough to shake my ancestors. So, I'm lying with my head under my sink, crying because my jaw hurts. Why my jaw, you ask?

Avatar m tn I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.
544292 tn?1268886268 So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity.
