Oxycodone withdrawal remedies

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone withdrawal remedies


Avatar f tn Narcotic withdrawal sleep issues can be severe and it's possible that none of these remedies will help. There's always a risk is taking any medication. I'd like to be able to tell you that the sleep issues will pass quickly. In reality, normal sleep patterns are one of the last things to return after quitting opiates. It WILL get better but it's one of the harder parts of getting clean from opiates.
Avatar m tn Cocaine withdrawal is merely psychological, where as, Opiate withdrawal is physical. Instead of reverting to smoking pot or taking another substance like Lyrica, I would suggest looking into vitamin, herbal and over the counter remedies to help you get by the first few days. Magnesium and Potassium both aid in neuromuscular communication, which will help your body alleviate your pain symptoms. Also, get yourself sone icy hot patches and take hot baths.
Avatar m tn i am quitting oxycodone like as of NOW and i'm terrified of withdrawal and i can't go to rehab and i was wondering if there is any home remedies or advice i could ask?? i was taking six 10 mg pills a day for a long time please i need some help!! is there any way i can do this? plus they put me on buspar 10 mg twice daily for anxiety will that help or should i avoid it until im detoxed?
Avatar m tn Monochrome, Yes, Tramadol is an opiate and would prolong your withdrawals. It also has other effects similar to anit-depressants, so, get hooked on that stuff and you will end up with classic opiate and anti-depressant withdrawal symptoms. I'd highly recommend flushing them while your mind is strong. I'd really hate to see you take some of those in a week moment. I'm sure you know, one leads to two and so on. Please flush them. Oxy480Jim, Do you have any clue what you're talking about?
Avatar f tn I have been taking 6-7 oxycodone 30mg for the last 4 months, prior to that 60-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. I desperately want off, and I want to go cold turkey. I have Clonodine, Neurontin, Clonazepam- all to help me with withdrawal. I get mixed results when I ask online if it's safe to withdraw from opiates cold turkey. Can someone answer me? I am in otherwise good health with the exception of a bulging disc in my back which started this whole ugly mess.
Avatar n tn He suffers from chronic back pain. When we met 3 years ago, he was taking 1-3 oxycodone per day for his pain. This past September he had spinal fusion surgery and prior to entering the hospital, he was taking perhaps 12 oxycodone per day - prescribed by his doctor. He is also taking pregablin or lyrica for pain. It is now 6 months after the surgery he is still taking between 8.5 and 11 oxycodone perday and 2 pregablin.
Avatar m tn Anyways, right now I am running 2 separate prescriptions, 1 for 60x40mg OxyContin (prescribed 1 pill twice daily), the other is 240x5mg Pms-Oxycodone (prescribed 2 pills 4 times daily). I REALLY NEED to stop taking this stuff...I'm sure this has been said before, but I do have legitimate pain that many neuro-orthopedic surgeons say "will never fully go away." First off, I want to get back to 1 prescription only, due to the potential legal consequences of "double doctoring.
3524676 tn?1365524476 Some days I could get by on 60 mg and others I still felt like I was dying after 120 mg. My neurologist has tried a few times to switch me to Oxycodone cold turkey. I was told that I would not go through withdrawals because I was trading one opiate for another. NOT TRUE!! The withdrawals were not as bad as long as I took Oxycodone, but I was still going through them. Now today is day two of NOTHING. I am losing my mind.
1434665 tn?1289859138 Last weekend went to detox for Oxycodone HcL 60 mg (not extended release) a day for 2 years. (doctor prescribed). Never on street drugs or had a problem with any other prescription med. Could not quit this on my own, and it started to make me sick. Detox went well. However, first two days I felt sluggish. Then tried one/half dose of suboxone per doctor, and that was a nightmare.
Avatar n tn Will any of them lessen the withdrawal symptoms? What do I expect for withdrawal symptoms - and for how long? I'm so afraid. I have to function I have a young child and a family to take care of. Will any of the other medication help me to get off the oxycodone? I can't tell anyone I am taking it because I am so ashamed. I want to be medication free when I see my rheumatologist which in 7 days - is this possible? What do I do? I can't believe I'm posting this - I am so ashamed.
Avatar f tn And I still have 4 months to go. My OB and my pain doctor have spoken and for the past month I have been back on the oxycodone for the pain. I try so hard not to take them because if I caused my baby any harm it would kill me. But I am weak and due to the pain and with the ok of my doctors I take them. Pretty much at least one a day. But I am still terrified of what I might be doing to the baby and worried about addiction and withdrawls for the baby when born.
Avatar f tn MY personal opinion is to try NOT to resort to taking sleep remedies of any kind...and let the sleep restore itself naturally. Adding sleep remedies into the mix (even natural ones) can slow the overall process of normalizing your sleep patterns. As long as you're not going many days on end with NO sleep, you'll be okay. Tired, but okay.
Avatar n tn I wonder how I was coping with the 7500-15000mg of acetaminophen I was taking. Anyway, this binge went on for many more months, and I began to find 30mg Oxycodone tablets with no aspirin, which made me feel a little safer as far as taking them. Those I was going through probably almost 5 or 6 a day. It was ridiculous. A couple months ago, a friend of mine introduced me to Methadone. I did some research and read about how well it works as far as a detox drug.
Avatar n tn (lack of testosterone lack of sex drive) and tonight i seek what i know cant be found because there is no remedies for withdrawing from painkillers. tonight i am in withdrawal. u think lortab is hard to get off? faaackkk...try kicking methadone...or missing a couple doses cuz u missed ur appt and dr. isnt there all week... tonight i feel what u felt unless u still feel it...my legs are kicking aching...my back hurts...
Avatar f tn I was first prescribed Oxycodone APAP 5/325 aprroximately a year and a half ago by a doctor due to my sever knee pain. Approximately three months ago, I started seeing a new doctor, and he took me off the Percocet that has Tylenol in it, and placed me on Oxycodone HCL 5mg; Which is Percocet without the Tylenol, basically. So here's my question to you, and please help me with this... I've been taking 8-10 of these pills a day, as directed by my doctor.
Avatar n tn I have to cut down and recently cut down to 10 a day and have experienced physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms. I have some clonidine and don't know how much to take for withdrawal. What is the recommended dosage. My goal is to eventually cut down to 4 a day, but have been very uncomfortable at 10. I also take effexor and trazadone for depression, but I am so depressed right now. Hydrocodone, believe it or not has helped my depression and has given me something to look forward to.
Avatar n tn I am just curious as to how bad withdrawal can be? It has been 60 hours now since my last dose and I believe I am starting to feel normal again. The last 2 days were very uncomfortable, but I didn't experience any throwing up or other symptioms that other talk about, just cold sweat and boredom and a general discomfort. It wasn't like I was on a small a small dose either. I was snorting 240 mgs of oxycontins for the past 2 - 3 months straight. Anyone have any comments??
220965 tn?1189759423 What are some of the best home remedies for stopping Oxycodone use? I have no money for the suboxone. I have been taking 5/325 8-10 a day for around 2 years prescribed by my VA doctor and I want to quit and I have tried but the withdrawals got the best of me? Any help is much appreciated.
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 He went through the typical withdrawal symptoms the first week and is getting better everyday. However, he has these vomiting spells. Sometimes it's only once, other times, like last night, he goes on all night long. Is this normal withdrawal? He does have an extra sensitive stomach (perhaps from doing so many drugs) and vomiting isn't out of the ordinary for him. But I am concerned that maybe there is something more seriously wrong. Any feedback is welcome.
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 m tn I have been on Oxycodone for over 2 years. Anywhere from 5mg to 15mg 3-4 times a day. I got carried away and took all my meds thinking I could get my script a week early as I was leaving town for a few weeks and assumed the dr would just write a 23 day script rather than a 30 day script to accomodate me while in another state where they won't fill an out of state script.
175688 tn?1297560247 However, oxycodone is a narcotic, and using this drug during the end of a pregnancy may cause narcotic withdrawal in the infant after delivery.
Avatar f tn My pain started worsening during pregnancy and my doctor put me on oxycontin 20mg three times a day on top of the oxycodone 10mg three times a day that I was already on. I've only been on the oxycontin for 2 months and I've been taking more and more every day to avoid feeling withdrawal. This past weekend I decided enough was enough and started cutting down to just the oxycontin and then just the oxycodone the past 24 hours.
7610864 tn?1394003844 Shortly after that I starting getting oxycodone 5 mg (no Tylenol) buying around 10-20 every 2 weeks. I would either snort them, or shoot them. I was taking at least one or two a day. As my habit continued, I started buying 10 mg opana, 10 mg oxycodone, 30 mg oxy and even some heroin. It is Feb 16th and I'm still doing a combination of them. Yes I have a problem and I do want to get off of these. I spend hundreds of dollars a month for my habit.
Avatar f tn Hello! I'm new to this forum. I am going on my 7th day of cold turkey withdrawal of 120mg of Oxycodone and 200mg of barbiturates per day. I was on them for 3ish years for chronic pain. My withdrawal symptoms have been almost unbearable leg and lower back pain. Also, burning in my arms, abdominal pain, and headaches.
Avatar m tn Have taken Oxyconton 5 x 10mg daily and oxycodone 30 x 3 daily for well over a year. Is it possible to use Gababpenten as an aid to the withdrwal symptoms of pain plus anxiety from getting off the junk? Do I need to add something like xanex or what is the process?
1190752 tn?1264647724 I was taking 5 (as prescribed ) 30 mg oxycodone a day ,and 3 -40mg oxycontin extended release daily for 2.5 years .I havent run out ever and i am sick , i have so much pain and fatigue and vomting and leg spasms ,etc..
Avatar m tn I tried to have a drink of wine not too long after I quit, and it made me feel awful and made every withdrawal symptom I had about a hundred times worse. Never mind that it can put your guard down, but it can make you feel worse. And bananas are good too.. I'd have one or two at night and it helped a lot with the RLS. I even had the RLS in my arms (it was weird) but it's the potassium that can help relieve that symptom. And try some Epsom salts, hot bath or as a scrub in the shower.
