    Default Medrol

    My back is killing me. I dont have a back probelm, it is just from the detox. But it is driving me nuts. I am going to go get a medrol pack. I know it is rough stuff and wires you out.
    But will it effect any part of my receptor that could give me WD?
    IS there a bad reason anyone knows of not to do this in this situation? I just cant stand this pain. Day nine and it is at its worse.

    If you have not tried sub dont start at the end of the \"To use Sub or not - Helping future sub users \" thread. Start at the beggining and read it slow. You will be able to reconize the ones that know about this crap. READ WHAT THEY SAY. DO NOT GET LOST IN THE POST THAT ARE ONLY DESPERATE IN HOPE FOR THE MISTAKE THEY HAVE ALREADY MADE.

    Hey Skinny,

    I'm in the same situation. My back really hurts from 'jumping' Monday in the middle-upper region. I don't have any informatin on a 'medrol pack' but am very interested! Man, day nine and still terrible huh? Is it better than when you were where I am?

    Edit-Have you gone to askapatient.com and looked at the peoples responses to medrol? There are only about 5 responses and its hard to tell wheather it would be worth the trouble.

    One person said it corrected their dbl. vision wtf and said it made them jittery-check it out if you haven't already.

    Hope this helps.

    Rob

    Not gonna lie to you. Proggresively worse. Today is day nine after detox and it is the worst one yet so far. But you cant read a lot into it. Age and so many other things are factors, you may not have it as bad.
    I just know that when I hurt my ribs, that even narcotic did not help much and a Medrol pack made me 90% better in 2 hours.
    If my back hurts, then ev4en if it is from detox, surely there is inflamation. I know it would help if that is the case and I would kill for relief.
    But I know medrol amps you up, but it is a steroid. I would not think it would effect any part of my receptors but I have no idea.
    ANYONE before I do this have any idea??????

    No one have any experience with Medrol and its relation to this? I will not take it until I get solid testament.
    If I don't get some releif soon I may just pull my spine out and hang it in the closet for a while till it stops. THIS SUX!
    My back does all 3 things. It has very light WD's still, it burns I guess at all receptor endings or nerve endings, and it hurts like I strained it bad and am ignoring it. No matter what I do, it does not take a break.
    Medrol? Hammer? Meat Hook? What if I get someone to stab a pitch fork into my back? Would that work like acupuncture?
    I am about ready to star in Hostile 2 and let em really rip my spine out!
    All I know to say is ARG!

    I just took clonidine to go lay down and it knocks all little energy I have. I hope someone can tell me if the medrol will work by morning. If not I will have to hire someone to come take care of me and stay on clonidine all day till it stops.
    But now I heard from someone that when you do that, it can make it worse. Always a new story. THey said you have to get your heart rate up to get this s**t out, just not sure how I can do that when my back is so bad it is crippling me. And I am athletic. IT hurts and burns so bad it drains all energy from me. HELP?

    Methylprednisolone and prednisone are both glucocorticoids. Glucocorticoids are adrenocortical steroids.

    They can make you wacky! They sure made me weird when I was on them to suppress my immune system. They are serious drugs and have a lot of BAD side effects. Long term usage will wreck your body.

    Psychic derangements may appear when corticosteroids are used, ranging from euphoria, insomnia, mood swings, personality changes, and severe depression, to frank psychotic manifestations. Also, existing emotional instability or psychotic tendencies may be aggravated by corticosteroids.

    Most addicts in Detox get back pain... your pain threshold is severely reduced when getting off of opiates. (rebound)

    Try to ride it out.. Hot showers... Get out of bed. THAT can make you back worse! Change positions often.. Stand, walk and sit. lay down occasionally but not for long periods... walk some more. "Move Free" or it used to be called "Pain Free" at Costco helps 2-3 pills a day... I HAVE to take it. If I stop 2 weeks later my neck and back start to bother me.




    Been there, done that, wore out the tee shirt.

    Bup,I didnt explain that I know all about Medrol. I had it 3 times and yes, it did wire me out. But no other effects besides relief.
    I know we all want an easy way out, but I was wondering if I could do it a week for relief and get out more. I know I would be under false strength and not to push myself. But just the fact I could be active. Then I thought after a week maybe it would not be as bad. I did not mean long term. It is a medrol pack, you take it 7 days and sam for the pills. 7,6,5,4,3,2,1. By day 4 you are ready to get to day one cause it does mess with you. But has not been a real prob for me. I had it 2 years back for craked rib. It made me feel better instantly.
    I just have no idea if the wire our feeling it gives you could effect my receptors. I know myself and one valium right now ( never used benzos at all) would put me thru 3 days of detox hell. My damaged receptors would be effected by it. But the wire out is from the steroid and I just dont know if that is the same.
    I feel like if I could take this, it really would help me a lot. It only mask, but that is still a week of masking as this s**t is leaving my body. And it is now so that is the worst week. If there are not any issues with this, other than what the drug is about, then I honestly think I will be better off one week later. I have such a low tolerence for pain. It makes this so bad.
    I could take clonidine all day, but then my body is just slow. All processes slow down. This means I get this crap out slower also. Fake strength isnt a good thing but I could really do so much more if the MEdrol idea would work.
    Bup4Pain, I took 800IBU, tylenol, and celebrex. It does not effect me at all!
    Is this med you are talking about different from these? Thanks for chiming in.........
    Still looking for someone that can tell me about the medrol idea for sure?
