Avatar n tn When they ran out and I was already hitting up friends and finding roxy 30mg's and ended up being on increasing amounts for months. Finally after spending every penny on them for months I entered a methadone detox center, but they lulled me into maintenence. I felt terrible at the initial dose and had to keep going up, past 100mg, to about 120 at first. Over the months as pain and sleeplessness came back I went up more here and there, now at 160mg/day after just under 6 months.
Avatar m tn I am not looking for a high off methadone, just to not be sick and crave as bad. To last me through out the day and night. I am a newbie at this detox thing so thanks for all the advice and wisdom. Thank you.
Avatar f tn i just switched from 70mgs of methodone to THREE 8mg subutex a day and im also on 4mgs of xanax a day...you have to be carful mixing subutex with xanax or any other "benzo"...and um..even though theres no "opate blocker" in subutex it still binds so tightly to the opiate receptors in the brain that it literaly blocks you from getting high on vics percs or heroin etc etc.
990354 tn?1307136486 These are all prescription drugs. Mixing meds is VERY dangerous! and could be fatal if taken with other meds like oxycontin and zoloft. Your doctor can tell you if these meds are right for your condition. Usually you will have to ween off any drugs you are taking that would interferer before you start taking others. If you don't do this under a doctors care and supervision you could stop breathing and your heart could stop while you are sleeping.
Avatar m tn Also was taking zoloft and clonipin at this time as well.After 2 yrs I stared to build up a tolerance to both the oxy and roxy and they added Kadian to the mix,which is time released Morphin capsules.Was on this mixture for 2 years and and was chewing the oxi,because I was so addicted at this point that I would immiediately start to go into withdrawal as the dose wore off.
Avatar m tn My last roxy was at @ midnight. I woke up at 7am today and took like I said 1/8 of the sub which I broke and yes did buy off the street. This is my 1st time taking subutex and even this small amount has allowed me to work today. My plan was to take an eighth of this one pill for the next 4 days, pray and then hopefully I'll be over roxies and have had taken so little of the subs that I'm not addicted to those either.
Avatar n tn when I tried to get help from my dr on coming off herion, he said there was nothing he could do for me,and his whole addtitude changed towards,me so I went and got on methadone when he found that out he told me it was just as bad as dope, he totally treated me different after that, so I went and found a new dr and told him I was detoxing off methadone and he gave me clonidine, somas, phenergan which is for upset stomachs, naproxen for pain and klonipine for anxiety.
Avatar m tn Personally whether you take suboxone/subutex, methadone it is still better than doing drugs and blowing your money. And at least by trying one of these you are at least heading the right direction. Like posted above just beware because there is no miracle drug that will take cravinings, withdrawal, and your addiction away. Just be careful what doctor you see because a lot don’t give a **** about you.
Avatar f tn Also some OTC mixing will make your headache or RLS worse. Hot baths and fruit smoothies are a godsend. You will not want to eat - your sense of taste will be hightened and will bother you. But you need vitamin replenishment. When you are restless, get some excercise - trust me - at least it will pass the time. Do NOT go to work for 7 days if you can swing it. You are sick - so dont feel guilty or pressured - pressure will be unbearable and you may relapse.
Avatar m tn thanks for sharing that with us. I myself have been a methadone and norc mixer for the last 1 1/2 years and then was taking vikes for 3 years before that. so I know how you feel brother. and let me say that, I have learned that opioid and opiate addiction affects all walks of life from ministers to lawyers, from construction workers to profootball players. EVERYONE, so nothing to be embarrassed about.
Avatar n tn My doctor put me on percocet then that surgery had complacations and caused much pain and I had to have another surgery. This time the doctor put me on percocets and oxycontin 10mg twice daly and because of complations of this surgery I again have pain that is killing me. It was supposed to help me and that doctor messed me up again! Now I am up to 80mg oxycontin Twice a day and about 6 percocets a day.
