Ive been on pills then Methadone and quit it a few years back. The one mistake I didnt do was quit my friends who are still on it. Well here I am now 8 days CLEAN!! Cold turkey! I was taking 30-40mg then lowered to zero.Im taking vitamins and immodium.I just need some support please and any advice for me. I want my life back!! And sleep:) Melatonin, Motrin Pm,Excedrin PM, u name it I tried.. doesnt work for me?! thanks!
Congratulations !!! You are on your way to a new life, and that is great.
Have you tried Benadryl for sleep? It helped me get a few hours during CT WD, if you are not any other meds, try it?
You might want to talk to your doc about Ambien or another RX sleep aid, if you are ammenable to that idea.
Best wishes, and keep fighting the good fight!!
Hang in there MissKOx5. Does that mean you knocked out 5 people? lol! That's my girl You just stay strong and keep up the good fight. It's only a matter of time before you'll feel lots better. If you read my profile, at the bottom is a link, the 1st one. click on drugs and supplements, then click on "all herbs and supplements" You'll find lots of useful info there for natural remedies.
I am a friend that cares very much, I have been on many narcotics for pain but I admire you for taking this step, as one of the other friends told you Benadryl or Rx Ambien or I think there is one Rx called Sonata it might help, I don't know but I have gone off cold turkey and had to use the medication and slowly withdraw, I know you are determined I can hear it in your writing don't be afraid I recall a statement that my doctor and good friend told me (when I was going through withdrawl) it won't kill you but she understood how hard it is, I wish you only the very best and want you to know that I care and am sure that there are many members that do please take good care allow some of us to know you are safe
I would suggeest what I take & I am a chronic pain sufferer & I take temazapam,yes it is a benzo,but it does not affect you like say Valium but what it does in normal situations is not make you tired,but when you go to bed you fall asleep & stay asleep all night & wake up with NO hangover or anything of the sort,your just ready to take on the day. Hope you can get this prescribed to you cuz it works wonders,at least for me & I wake up over ANYTHING!!
