Niacin withdrawal symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Niacin withdrawal symptoms


Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar n tn You're risking a horrible seizure if what you've done is run out after using benzos on a daily basis, and now are just going cold turkey. A benzo withdrawal seizure can leave you a cold turkey. It's common knowledge that you must be tapered down from benzos or risk a life-threatening seizure. I've been through one. I came within a hairs breath of dying. The vigilance of my sweet wife is the only reason I am alive.
Avatar n tn I am convinced that these are the symptoms of codeine/hydrocodone withdrawal. WHAT do I do about this? I can't STAND it!!! I have three children to take care of (two of them are babies). I can't take care of myself now because I am "sick" so to speak. I have been completely honest with my husband about this. He agrees that this is probably withdrawal, I need to do "cold turkey" (what choice do I have anyway?) and tough it out for the next week or so.
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 Unfortunately while I was withdrawing from the norco I was taking ativan to sleep and while it was great to aid in the sleep, I was becoming addicted to them and had no idea, so when I quit taking them, I had a whole new set of withdrawal symptoms and those were worse than the norco ones, so I had to taper off of those and I am free of those pills too. I have no desire whatsoever to have any narcotic or alcohol, I like who I am without any of it.
5142668 tn?1364234345 I had been having these HORRIBLE headaches, nausea, dizzy spells, confusion, and crying spells out of nowhere. This all brought me to do a little bit of research and I found out it is all withdrawal symptoms. I don't want to start taking the pills again since they did not work for the reason I was taking them. That being said does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to help through these withdrawals without having to take a different kind of drug.
Avatar f tn I ended up tapering, and took my last (or so I thought) 10 mg pill two weeks ago tomorrow. It's been rougher than I expected, with ongoing wd symptoms, notably the stomach stuff (the kind that call for Immodium), and worst of all, depression and anxiety. Last weekend I found a stray pill from the trial. Since they were all encased in this gray shell, I had to pull it apart to see what dose it was. Damn, only a 10 mg.
Avatar m tn somewhat, I still have all the symptoms just enough energy to go about my day without wanting to kill myself at the thought of walking. Man this kind of got away from me, what I wanted to ask is, what did you do to make it through your addiction? Have you been able to stay clean, how? Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks.
544292 tn?1268886268 Various withdrawal effects may include shakes, shivers, diarrhea, nausea, and possible flu-like symptoms. Not all people experience will all withdrawal symptoms, and some people may experience others not listed here. The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose).
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Friends! I had no Severe Tramadol Withdrawal Symptoms today. Woo Hoo! I was tired. But that's to be expected. Pretending to be normal at work, and around others, during withdrawal, so your life isn't completely destroyed is tougher than it sounds. Esp at 44 days out! Of course, there's the whole other theory of; Just Surrender, Give Up and Join The Winning Side. For now, I'm still fighting. Yesterday's retreat made me strong today.
Avatar m tn My boyfriend was on Librium for 2 days, for alcohol withdrawal. Eight days later, after leaving the re-hab facility, he is still talking slow, and acting a little zombie-like. How long does it take to come out of short term Librium use? The doctor said 2-4 days, but it has been twice that long.
544292 tn?1268886268 Howdy Tramadol Warriors! New space New day!
544292 tn?1268886268 Severity of withdrawal can be estimated by considering that each 100 mg tramadol oral (hx daily use) will be roughly equivalent of 10 mg morphine (IV daily use) in severity of withdrawal symptoms. Differences are that standard opiate withdrawal seems to cause more physical illness (vomitting, diarhea, bone pain etc.) Tramadol withdrawall seems to cause significantly more anxiety and emotional distress.

Avatar m tn Up until a month ago I had absolutely no withdrawal symptoms to speak of- my goal was to get to 100mg and I am there but all of a sudden I started having severe, unfounded anxiety. It is just a free floating dread that seeps into my entire life... I am constantly asking myself "what is the point?" destroying any peace I may find in my day. I am always just dreading the rest of the day, and the day after that, and the day after that... Is this a withdrawal symptom?
Avatar f tn I hope this is it. Is this possible? by the way, I think niacin helps. Niacin helps when our brain gets stressed and adrenaline produces a hormone that makes us feel bad. I took niacin today and that seemed to help. I will keep posting until I am done but I must thank those few who did give me feedback here. I didn't get very much feedback. but what little I got really helped. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I take fenofibrate 160mgm along with lovastatin 40mgm daily. Could they be causing muscle pains all over my body? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Undiagnosed-Symptoms/What-are-the-withdrawal-symptoms-from-stopping-Fenofibrate-160-mgm/show/1779305">What are the withdrawal symptoms from stopping Fenofibrate 160 mgm.</a>.
182493 tn?1348056515 The reason for this is a) its long half-life (24-36 hours)…b) it is a synthetic morphine, c) the diabolic symptomology associated with withdrawal and the length of the withdrawal symptoms. Methadone, like all opioids creates profound changes to gastrointestinal function… In layman’s terms this means that regardless of the food you eat--absorption of the vital nutrients is impaired.
753324 tn?1457822792 and it would appear as though that you can expect some rebound symptoms of withdrawal at the 6 month mark. Things like depression, anxiety, extreme cravings and a loss of energy and motivation. These past couple of weeks I've been taking 1000mgs of Niacin and 500mgs of a super B-complex (I think thats what it's called. wife makes me take it) and it has done wonders for my energy level.
Avatar f tn 3days after the sub I had the worst stomach pain I've ever experienced, so bad I thought it was my appendix, anyway results ended up in the hospital overnight doing test then to find out it was withdrawal. It's been 8 days later and I feel horrible. I can't stop crying, anxiety attacks at night, restless legs and flu symptoms. I don't think I can last much more, my question is, how much longer is this hell?
Avatar n tn Hello and welcome! Your symptoms are caused by withdrawal from the fentanyl and they would be the same with any other opiate. It's just the nature of the beast when we taper off opiate therapy. RLS and increased pain are usually the first symptoms. Hot baths with epsom salts help a lot with withdrawal-induced RLS. The relief is only temporary but worth the effort. I've heard some people say that using heating pads on their legs (or arms if arms are also included) can also help.
Avatar f tn Magnesium and Niacin.............. If your story is similar to mine: Magnesium:: google and read about it, buy it and Take more than 3 to 4(or more) 250mg pills of it daily IF YOU ARE GOING DIAHRE. You need to google Nutrition facts on foods high in magnesium like Decaf coffee, cabbage, peanut butter, Garlic, and DRINK AND EAT THEM DAILY. Niacin "flush type" ::: is MORE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY than most anything you can drink or eat......
Avatar f tn Magnesium 750mg, fish pills about 8 of them daily, Niacin about pills and Niacin along with about 40 minutes of walking every day will decrease your blood triglicerides down to below 150, and increase your HDL levels to desired levels while DECREASING blood pressure, stress, blood sugar, weight, etc.............If you are able to tolerate Garlic like I can now, then you will get back to near normal. BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO STAY WITH THIS AND NOT STRAY.
Avatar f tn It really depends on the person, but I can tell you from my experience that it took about 3 weeks before the mental/emotional symptoms subsided. What are you exact symptoms? There are many supplements, vitamins and over the counter remedies to help with what you are experiencing. Congrats on making it through the physical withdrawal, so many of my friends cave during that period. You are well on your way to getting your life back. Keep posting, we are all here for you.
Avatar n tn I have had probably no less than a dozen blood tests as well as 2 urine tests all of which have not unearthed anything except the hightened GGT and AST on a couple of occasions. I find that I do not have any of the classic withdrawal symptoms when I stop drinking (insomnia, anxiety, sweats, dt's etc). Working Dog I take your advice well and agree that I probably need several months alcohol-free to truly find out if it is the cause. The trick will of course be putting it into action.
Avatar m tn So I was wondering if I should hold off on the Saw Palmetto during the week of withdrawal, only because urination is vital to detox and I figure the more trips to the bathroom the better? I hope I'm not being too cynical here, but I thought it was worth considering. I know I should be asking a doctor but I've changed insurance plans and have yet to choose a primary doctor for myself. Also, have any of you experience a sense of retaining water when taking pain pills?
Avatar f tn I recommend taking vitamins and supplements to help fight the symptoms. Lots and lots of water!!! And it's not usually easy but sleep as much as possible, your body recovers more quickly during sleep times. I slept 27 hours my first day sober. Hot baths are heaven and muscle cream helps with the pain plus the restless legs, I had that bad. I can give anyone interested my cocktail of vitamins that was most effective.
Avatar f tn Is this going to be bad? I have noticed on the days I forget to take one, I do get some withdrawal symptoms. That's one. This will be cutting two a day. I'm really afraid because I have to go to work. Please don't tell me to go see him or call him to discuss this because he's always right and I'm wrong.
