Niacin and opiates

Common Questions and Answers about Niacin and opiates


Avatar n tn I am still reading and doing research, but the vitamin b12 and b6, Co-Q10, and Niacin have helped so far. There is more i need to take, but like I said, I haven't gotten that far yet. Overcoming the physical w/d symptoms is bad, but the mental is worse to me. Some days things happen and I say, "USE USE USE" to get through it, but I know I can't. That is the wall I am up against now. We all need to prepare ourselves for these days.
182493 tn?1348056515 For the last 4 years I’ve been using nutrition—Intravenous and oral—to rebuild and repair the biochemistry pathways in the body and mind. Over four years experience —this includes heroin, and all other street drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications--has taught me that natural detox works 100 times better than detox formulated and predicated by the use of other mind altering chemicals.
452136 tn?1236959002 I am 13 days clean from opiates will taken some niacin help with the chills and RLS.Enevabilly hopefuly getting me better each day.
544292 tn?1268886268 The vitamins my husband takes, I started taking, and they help a great deal. I know that, because I forgot to take them one day and BOOM! Super exhaustion versus exhaustion. I was busy today and tried to pretend I was ok. As in, going outside the office into the bathroom to cough, blow my nose, and so on. Bronchitis gets messy. But that's ok, it's better than being on the soul sucking demon pill Tramadol.
Avatar n tn I have had some luck but not alot by taking potassium 4500 mcg and 50 mg of niacin. the niacin will give you a brief detox of all chemicals in the body but you have to be very carefull not to take to much or you will feel like you are on fire. for six hours.
Avatar f tn In my area, just calling another doctor about pain issues won't work because all the different offices are linked and it brings up that my doctor alone treats me for pain and it's against doctors morals to treat patients for pain if there is already another doctor doing so because of this reason....pain killers. If you are trying to quit, cold turkey is the best way to try. You need to be tough and determined, but it can be done and you will be better for it.
Avatar f tn Mind is Coke,but have stayed away for 5 years now. The rehab I went through,that did the Niacin,drug bomb,and sauna setup,really made me stop using completely. I have really no desire for that garbage anymore. Had no withdrawls from that process at all. Tried almost the same process at my home for my Methadone addiction,with no success whatsoever. I never would have guessed that a drug like Methadone,would be 100% harder to detox from than cocaine.
1697690 tn?1329127238 thnk u for the info and yes i am 3 days sober and there is certainly no light at the end of the tunnel. maybe eventually. still just trying to get thru this day.its worse then yesterday, but i figured so. i have zero expectations, mayeb thats better because in the past i have expectations and i always just let myself down and fail miserably at everything that has to do with sobriety or anything rly.
Avatar m tn i've also been doing the thomas recipe, and i've added vit D and niacin,, and pure determination!!! Beat this B!tch, or it will beat you!! Stay strong and know it will go away... i'm on day 4 1/2, I have my moments but those pass..
544292 tn?1268886268 pretty much everything you need is in these posts, in yourselves, and in your connections with other people. I never took tramadol, but opiates were one of several substances I was addicted to when my sky fell some years before tramadol was introduced. I believe absolutely that the primary characteristics of tramadol withdrawall are substantially the same as opiate withdrawall.
2127868 tn?1346096698 amino acid protocol..... it has been helping me sooooo much ! get everything on the list! i added niacin and emergen-c and fish oil..... it will cost about 130 .... but i know uve spent that easy for a fix , no? do it this time to heal yourself......your soul! here is the ultimate question : do u want to live life as a slave ? opiates r dictating who u r ..... what u think , how u feel! just decide to say **** this ******** ! i am worth sooooo much more than this! and just do it.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
Avatar f tn Passionflower. theses are for anxiety and insomnia etc. But a good Amino acid protocol and also Niacin or Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) Animal protein as well eat meat that's also needed. And I am using HEMP PROTEIN POWDER as you can put that in or on anything. I have had to go on Lyrica to get some relief from the unreal pain i got BUT i am only takin the for 5 day's then stop as THEY ARE ADDICTIVE. Doctors will tell you their not but the are!! And the WD's from the is worse than Opiate WD's.
Avatar f tn One after each meal and when you start going diahrea just cut back down to 2 or 1 tablet per day. Next add Niacin and fish pills and WALK because walking, niacin, and magnesium have cured my Proctitis. And Proctitis is the same as Chrons in the rectal area.. Magnesium and Niacin are like wonder drugs when it comes to IBD. Just give them 6 months and a year to really start enjoying life again. Check this from Merck on Niacin DEFICIENCY and GI tract in Chrons and UC I guess.....
Avatar f tn I'm also taking a couple 5 hour powers to move about, zinc, ltripta thingie, can't remember correct name, niacin, immodium, not so much anymore, and eating pretty good except appetite. I will probably pay for that tomorrow. Please excuse my typing talking to yall is risky as the hub is a complete control freak and is actually scaring the bajeebus outta me so its on a mini touch phone.
Avatar f tn Hey there first thing i can say is hang in there i have withdrawn from several opiates and from my experience oxy's are the worste.
Avatar f tn It's just a mild BP medication, but it really helps with the WDs. Also, Niacin, and especially B-6. Please try, and stay away from dairy period as it irritates an already tender colon. If the diarrhea lasts more than two-three days? Then get the immodium. Remember you want this flushed out ASAP! God Bless, and good luck to all, and yes you can do this!
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
461993 tn?1245696952 5 hour energy does contain niacin which feels like a rapid detox and makes the skin crawling feel worse for a short period of time as well stomach issues and vomiting from caffeine which *****. I know because I just experimented with these during wd from suboxone after 1 month 8mg -0mg from heavy opiate use of 4-5 months. During the first 1-3 days transitioning from opiates to subs I did not attempt this stuff because I adapted well to suboxone.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
1507968 tn?1327804170 Niacin, Valerian Root, and OTC sleep aids helped me recoup a bit too as the body needs to rest. The Niacin gives you a itchy flushing sensation for about 5 minutes, then it's gone. Finally, I had a whey or soy protein shake almost every day. I added banana, granola, and ice to make it a little tastier. Hang in there. Keep posting because these people do care, and the advice is solid.
Avatar f tn But my appatite is gone last 2 day's. AND i came out in itchy rash from Niacin +flushing re and itching. I think this is because i took too much but i have the non flush one's Niacinamide so i can take tht insted but will leave it for today and start them at lower dose to morrow. The Naicin is too high i believe but THAT will detox you. So that maybe flushing stuff out quicker. And my tounge is yuck!! Its the toxins coming out as its thick white coating and very thirsty too.
Avatar n tn o and i ate them(four a day) said u smoke them so there could just be a fascination with that....a couple of my friends say they just like sniffing stuff so it was a little harder for them to stop but subox worked for alot of people i kno...
Avatar m tn I have been taking them about a year and half. I am now out of pills and need to know that best way to help with the withdraw. I am extremely scared but so tired of taking these pills. It effects my everyday life and the future I want to have with my husband. I have tried this before and my legs hurt so bad. What can I do? What's the best way to do this on my own?? I don't want to be on these pills anymore please any advice will be great!!
1591337 tn?1297104949 I gave up opiates, pot, and fast food. Each of them were done on a daily basis. I've been off the opiates for about two weeks, pot about one week, and just giving up the fast food. I am tapering myself off the fast food. I begin my day with a banana and low fat yogurt. Then I eat something not so good for you for lunch. Then I eat healthy snacks like grapes, apples, blueberries,ect. Then I try to eat a pretty healthy supper. I feel like my bloodpressure spikes when it gets dark for some reason.
Avatar f tn I know several friends who have been hooked on em and they say it worse than getten off regular opiates because it has some kinda depression thing in them. I just toughed it out and took nothing for sleep or anything it was hard but I made it. and you can to more exp members will see this and have more answers on the trammadol but in my opinion I would not take em. I personally think its a mistake but I was so scared of taking anything cause I know how I'm once I start I wont stop.
1078583 tn?1256347114 so i had surgery and it helped but stayed on the opiates because they helped with everything from p.t.s and a horriable ex wife who abandoned our son at the age of 6mo old left us not a goodbye nothing just because she wanted to keep partying she left us!!
Avatar n tn A few years later you'll be taking 15 to 20 a day, still feel like crap and wishing like hell you'd stopped back when you were just taking 1 per day. For energy I take a Super B complex, Niacin and a daily multi vitamin. Quitting now will be much easier than it will be this time next year. Besides there's nothing wrong with being a little lazy.
