Hi All, I have been reading for the last 2 hrs all the pain & suffering with opiates. I am on my 5th day opiate free, my knees & depression the seemingf to take the worst. I was lucky enough to get a med detox, but as an addict I ingested through nose 200 plus a day along with p,v,. I am glad I found this site , especially hearing from people that have made it. I was told to ask for bentyl, which has helped. Should I be resting or out moving around. thanks
agree with lisa, the busier you stay, the faster it will seem to go. lying around festering will only make the discomfort seem worse. also staying active keeping the metabolism up, drinking lots of fluids,eating healthy will help the body rid itself of the garbage and return to equilibrium. sleep will also get better sooner if you tire yourself out with activity.-
Hi, I read your post above and assumed you meant Benedryl instead of Bentyl. After doing some web research, I'm not so sure. Bentyl is prescribed for IBS which can seem symptomatic of opiate withdrawal. It rarely is. Benedryl is sometimes suggested for patients experiencing opiate withdrawal and accompanying insomnia. Both of the above drugs will exaggerate 'restless leg' in atropine sensitive individuals. I'm one of them. If you're taking Bentyl or benedryl and it helps, great. It you're suffering from 'restless leg' it's possible your medications are contributing to your discomfort. Good luck. This is not easy, but it is possible.
Yes, thanks Mike, ome of nurses from detox said bentyl, compazine & one other I cannot remember. They were Jamacian & told me to eat bananas after something else. I feel sure bentyl helped but comp didnot. Today is 16days off oxys but only 6 off thier stepdown process & a dumb idea of a few percocet during 3 days when I first got back. I cannot wait for my body & soul to heal. I want to never forget these last 2 weeks.
Hey, if something helps, no reason to stop using it 'till it quits working. Wellbutrin is Bupropion is Zyban. Wellbutrin is prescribed for depression. Zyban is the same medication, but a lower dose, prescribed to help with smoking cessation. I've never tried it, don't know if it helps or not. Try it. Let me know. I'm lighting a Marlboro as a type this.
ok- I don't think it would hurt, i.m goin all the way, this has definately been a better day but i,m disgusted with myself, snorting that crap. Thanks Mike for the messages & info, they help more than anything.-6.2 days free
