... 18mg. The withdrawals aren't too bad; does anyone have advice for joint pain? My knees and elbows were very painful last night. I'm drinking at least 1 oz of wheatgrass a day, and I can't say enough about that. Nighttime is the worst; I'm not falling asleep soundly until about four or five. Sleeping pills not an option. As long as I get four hours I'm fine. Also, I woke up to my cat kneading all of my sore spots and they weren't sore any more!!! Feline power!
Hi tamara, You might want to try Melatonin for sleep. You may purchase it at any pharmacy, 'tis a natural product like your wheatgrass, and feline power!
Also google The Thomas Recipe for opiate withdrawal, it will provide you with a list of OTC meds you will need while in WD.
I have trouble sleeping also due to pain, 24 - 7. I use alternately, never together: Ambient one night, next night could be (3) benadryl, or (4) melatonin. I got this advise from my family doctor. And most nights its works for me, for at least most of the night. As you can't use the Ambient, try the others alternately. Also some have advised the use of Lavender as relaxing scent.
