Mobic withdrawal

Common Questions and Answers about Mobic withdrawal


1311475 tn?1274202380 I should not be in withdrawal since I have tapered myself down to the 60 mg and have been at that dose for quite some time. I was given an NSAID called Mobic to reduce the pain from withdrawal symptoms but have other side effects from that, like withdrawal symptoms when I take it, I for one did not see any of these symptoms that I'm having as a side effect on the drugs information pamphlet or research that I've done on the medication.
Avatar f tn I have had short periods of withdrawal where I would run out early, but would always refill the script when it was time and start all over again. I could have refilled it again on May 28, but I decided no more. I am sick of being dependent on these pills. I have just completed 24 hours of freedom from norco and I will not go back again. They didn't help that much with the pain, anyway. It is going to be a little tough, I know. I am feeling achy, tired, sick, and antsy right now.
Avatar n tn After I finished the project in mid-may, I decided that I needed to stop using a drug to get through the day, so I tried to just stop taking it. WOW! Serious withdrawal symptoms including joint and muscle pain, stomch issues, fatigue, depression and a strange hollowness in my nerves ensued. I didn't feel I could just stop functioning for a week or two or whatever it would take, so I used some hydrocodone that I had to help me get my tramadol use down to 100mg per day over the course of a week.
Avatar n tn Then I read all of these people's stories and I realize I was wrong in my assessment, it happens to a lot of people and it could happen to me, and I was going down that road, a road I cant go down. Every minute that goes by increases my thought that this forced withdrawal is a fork in the road for me. A way to test how much I need those damn pills.
Avatar n tn I backed up to where I had not had withdrawal and slowed my remaining taper, but continued to get withdrawal, just not so severe. I was fortunate that I still had enough extra patches to allow this, but I found I could not function without adding in some short-acting meds to curb the withdrawal. This only delays the process, I know, but I didn't see a need to suffer while I figured out a longer-term plan.
Avatar n tn Came on the forum by accident-trying to figure out what's going on with me. My rheumatologist was concerned about my ibuprofen and ultram use (after 2 years prescribed). Went abruptly from 400 mg ibuprofen & 100 mg ultram 6x per day to 1 Mobic. I feel like there is a war going on inside my body....and my mind is not far behind!!! IS this the ultram? The ibuprofen? Both?? Or am I going nuts????

1311475 tn?1274202380 It's almost 11Pm and my pain hasn't changed, except for the pelvic groin pain, now all that is left is what seems to be a knot in my lower abdomen, my pain is increased in what seems like all areas of my body, it started when I took the laxative that the Dr. told me to take and the Mobic that Dr. Dice prescribed, I am also having physical jerking movements all over my body like withdrawal but all over my body not just in the legs, it's in my arms and torso.
Avatar m tn The withdrawal from Xanax, that stopped a week and a half ago has let me w/ severe problems of muscle spasms and migraines. The spasms are constant,very painful and seem to last an eternity.The migraine headaches are almost daily and derive from the tension headache that the spasms leave in my head. This doesn't let me sleep well and I have to resort to 10mg of Melatonin and several Tylenol PM during the night to sleep through it.
1311475 tn?1274202380 I am having withdrawal symptoms from all of the medications that I take, I mean everything even a laxative. As soon as I take it I have sweating, chills, leg cramps, and body jerking ( like restless legs but all over) right now I am at 60 mg of methadone, I am supposed to take .05 mg of clonazapam 4 times a day for anxiety. My new Dr.
Avatar n tn if you are not abusing you pain meds then i don't think suboxone is the right choice at all for you. it is mainly used for relapse prevention. it's does little for pain. i have a friend who is on pain med yet does not abuse. when he becomes tolerant, he has his doctor switch him to a different medicine rather than up his dose. he absolutely refuses to be put on oxycontin. it is my understanding that withdrawing from suboxone is very very hard and long lasting.
Avatar f tn I went to the doctor for some issues that I had been having and decided to reach out to my doctor for help getting off these bad boys. He perscribed Meloxicam to help with some the withdrawal symptons. I have to say this stuff, which is just an anit inflammatory will helps with the symptons. It eleminates the hot, flush feeling which is most annoying. It really does help. Just wondering if it's all in my head or has anyone actually heard of this? Thanks.
1311475 tn?1274202380 They would work for a few days and then stop working again or so it seems, Now I have been having withdrawal symptoms like opiate withdrawal except for the diarrhea. whats really odd is now that I have mentioned that I haven't had the withdrawal diarrhea, my stomach has been rumbling just this morning like I am going to have it. To the point I am going to take an Immodium. All the time I am having the withdrawal symptoms, I am having every side effect listed on the methadone info.
1770281 tn?1315403593 I'm assuming you stopped cold turkey? If so, all of this is withdrawal, we need to wean off of these types of meds with the guidance of our prescribing doctor. Or it may be that you still need the medication. You have to decide which is worse...your depression or taking the medication to control the symptoms. Don't get hung up on because this is a mental issue that you can handle it on your own.....we often can't and that's okay.
Avatar m tn for the last 6 years they have had me taking everything from tramadol, xanax, morphine, diladud, oxycontin, oxcycodone, codeine, oxcycodone ir, vicodin, norco, soma, flexeril, meloxicam, mobic, on top of that I used to be an alcoholic, and use illegal drugs cocaine mostly weed, and whatever else to stop the pain from the total disc replacement surgery in my back. Here is the ****** up part, I can't get off them even if I wanted to, I would be in chronic pain and I am only 37 years old.
Avatar m tn Search posts here for Ultram withdrawal and see why. 2) I went down to .5mg every 3 days and had no withdrawal symptoms except for anxiety.
1311475 tn?1274202380 She said would help control the pain from the withdrawal but is doing nothing except causing more withdrawal symtoms, but that was not on the listed side affects, so now I don't want to take those either.
Avatar m tn The next few days until you can get your refill may be a little uncomfortable as you may experience some withdrawal symptoms. You will be Ok just uncomfortable. Since you are having to take more pills than the 4 you are prescribed a day can you discuss with your doctor adjusting the dose so that you dont have to take more and wont run out. Im sorry that your in pain. Let us know what we can do to help!
1311475 tn?1274202380 The best thing that worked so far was pushing the knot back into place, I believe I pulled some kind of muscle it seems to be getting better right now, no more blood in the urine, I do have an appointment to see a Urologist again. I figured at least the Mobic that she prescribed for my pain being an anti- inflamatory, would have helped with swelling but they do not do anything but make me go through more withdrawal.
Avatar m tn There was definitely some red flags with your doctor, though I think most of us go into pain management somewhat naively. Unfortunately doctors can dismiss patients for pretty much any reason they want ... or for no reason at all. How many pills do you have left? I would start tapering which, while it won't eliminate withdrawals, they should be milder. Also start looking for a new doƧtor. Call hospitals, many have pain management clinics in the hospital.
Avatar f tn So I spent all this morning reading all of your posts on withdrawal symptoms from percs. I have been taking 5/500, prescribed 4 times a day, but in reality, it turned into about 8-10, for the past 12 months or so. I've been under the care of my family doctor and a "pain management" doctor (who actually really didn't do anything pharmaceutical for my 2 bulging discs in my lower back, that took my breath away and kept me from functioning as my job as a nurse!
Avatar f tn I still see a physiatrist for injections in my back and treatment for a labral tear in my hip. He prescribes Mobic (anti-inflammatory) and neurontin for me. I called last Friday for refills for them and was told he wouldn't refill them because I was "getting medication from another doctor". At first I denied that, and then realized what they were talking about...I had surgery on December 18th and filled one script of 25 Vicodin.
Avatar f tn Pain is very very common from withdrawal. When you are wondering what are symptoms of withdrawal, think of it like this. The exact opposite of every positive side effects of the pill, will be what you feel. euphoria/disphoria No-pain/pain Constipation/loose stools less depressed/ more depressed sleep/ no sleep calm legs/ restless legs On and on, I don't have any specific injuries which would require me to take medication but my entire body hurt when I went c/t.
Avatar n tn This can also be very effective when used together with an NSAID like motrin, naproxen or mobic-mobic is especially effective in treating arthritis pain. Muscle relaxers might be another good option to look into like flexeril, any of these can be used along with codeine or another opiate. I know many like to control pain through any painkillers they can to avoid opiates but opiates really are much safer on your body than tylenol, NSAID's and even some muscle relaxants.
Avatar f tn Prior to surgery I was on lyrica,mobic and tylenol prn for fibromyalgia and chronic joint pain. After the surgery I developed blood clots in my lungs and was placed on warfarin and taken off mobic.My primary doctor sent me to pain management doctor for relief of pain for my chronic problems and the ones caused by surgery. Last month I missed appointment with my pain doctor due to car problems called to reschedule appointment that morning and they did so.
3163650 tn?1391640150 I wanted to let you know that I found that Kratom capsules help tremendously with the withdrawal symptoms, and as for pain, I also take Mobic (like Celebrex,) and Advil Liquigels, which help - not like opiates - but help nonetheless.
Avatar f tn Zanaflex is a good muscle relaxer. avisg tells me that Mobic is a good pain reliever. See what they say about these. It is true the body makes more pain to get the drugs. I am not sure if this is so for valium. It is for opiates. Ibuprofen 600s or 800s works for the pain too.
Avatar f tn Hi Sassisu, I am glad that you found us at MedHelp. And sorry to hear about your experience with Flexeril. I have not heard of any dependency issues of that drug before. It does make sense that your body can become accustom to any medication. Have you discussed this with your PCP? As Sandee said I don't know how many you are taking per day not the dose. I think I would just gradually reduce this medication. Are you sure the migraines are related to the discontinuation of the medication....
Avatar m tn The mental part is going to be the lingering aspect of withdrawal for some time. There's a lot of great aftercare out, meetings, therapy, etc. Just get into something.
