it's driving me crazy... is this normal to crave sweets like this... i am even drinking regular soda and i used to only ever drink diet... has this happened to anyone else too???
According to my therapist, yes it is normal and she said just watch how much you eat so you won't gain too much weight. She encouraged eating sweets and chocolate and ice cream to quell cravings and told those who had quit alcohol, there were particularly vulnerable, but that it was ok.
Maybe it is true of all opiod drugs that you crave sweets because everyone I know on anything has craved sugar. I ate a bag of 20 tootsie roll pops everyday for 2 years when I was on norco for my hip. I had to have 6 teeth pulled before my surgery ! My son also craved candy when he was on opiates. It causes tooth damage also from your mouth getting dry so if you notice that drink alot of water and brush alot.. Good luck
