    Hey jay ya balancing out ur options is great. Btw idkif its myphone or sonthing I can't see my post to you or "question89"s post I wanted him and you to see that. Anyways ya. I think me taking my valium 3x daily 5mg and the dueloxetine 60mg is really helping my wds along with ibuprofen if I need it and. Loperamide which I don't know if it was covered in this its an anti diaretic but its supposidly a opiate but doesn't go to the brain. Also I take some diphenhydramine like 50~100mg if my insomnia is too much.
    What I think about suboxone? That's a tuffy since I've not gone into treatment for my opiate problem. To me I guess it case tocase and depends on the person. Itsstill an opiate but makes other drugs rather ineffective if taken(so u don't get high) but I think if I were to taper off I would do itlike I rip off a band aid quick and with a. Knowlege there might be an uncomfortable momen or. Moments. For me personally you have been tapering for alittle while now and ur at such small doses it is almost placebo like in my opinion but that is fromsomonewho hasn't taken subs before ya know? And I think what u said about getting a short supply of benzos is good for the wds cuz I would be dying without my valium right now with my wds. For you though I always try to steer ppl clear of ativan xanax profotol. And all short acting half life benzos but it depends if u can handle taking. Them only as needed rather than taking a klonopin. Or valium once or twice a day compared to like 4 or 8 times a day with the short actging. Btw in my experience every benzo I've been on got me high sedated hit me hard and gives wds. Valium on theother hand doesn't get. Me high or sedated just content it could be just me but somthing to think about plus valium has a freakin long half life and the wds aren't as bad as others inmy experience.
    Anyways ill check to see if u replied back talk to you soon
    Warm regards trent

    Finally saw the clonidine post! I'm thinking of trazadone maybe instead idk. Wish you could post the website for me BUT I have a hunch that is a big no no legal issue with this site. Plus don't want to get you in any trouble . I really feel fine other then not sleeping last night. I feel really tired right about now and have been out and about all day today so I hope that helps me pass out really soon. Played some pool with a friend and got my a$$ handed to me. LOL I suck at pool. Was good to take my mind off how I feel though. This friend is "squeaky clean" she is a really good influence, also found out DUring the game of pool that she used to be a competition player...so she made me look really amatuer. I really should hang out with her more, since she doesn't know whats going on with me I have to pretend like I'm fine which actually helps me to feel fine. If that makes sense. I'm tired lol. Don't mind me. That hilarious about the Viagra. They are a pharmacy though..and I'm sure they know why people are ordering clonidine-for opiate withdrawal lol Hint hint. They prob know all too well about peoples problems in that dept. My husbands friend gave him a viagra once. I was like Nuh uh buddy not happening here. Don't even think about it. LOL TMI but funny story. I hear too many stories of guys ending up in the hospital from that stuff. Imagine that lmao.

    TRENT: Suboxone is TOOL for those who are trying to get off (usually) heavy duty drug use: H, methadone, high doses of oxy, etc. It is not simply a "security" thing or simply a "mental/physical" thing, nor is it simply a crutch used to replace the drugs you were taking and to defer the pain of w/d. Jumping off of high doses of sub is brutal. If you have never gone through methadone, H, or heavy oxy or other opiate use, you have no idea of the rate of relapse without using something like suboxone to let you down easier and the more important aspect of giving an addict time to get their life together. Suboxone, used correctly, has helped many people get off of opiates and to stay clean: in conjunction with addiction treatment such as NA, AA, addiction counseling and other counseling. Addiction and the use of suboxoone is not something to be treated lightly and people taking it are not "weak" or unwilling to rip the "bandage" off. You have a totally wrong idea concerning subs used to help rather than to help heal, particularly long term addiction. I've dealt with people here who have c/t'd high levels of methadone and people who have c/t'd H as well as roxy's and oxy's. The pain of w/d is incredible and I hope you never experience this. You need to read around the boards.

    Jay: sorry to vent on your thread, but...

    Rose youhave a great way of reading what u like to read and get out of it what u want. Ur wrong it is very simply mentaland physical. And yes it is a crutch why do u think I take my valium? As a crutch? Temp crutch?long term crutch in some cases? You were obviously distraut by my mis spelings and my trigger words for you such as "crutch" mental\physical "like a band aid" ect. It is a safety thing other wise why would anyone need treatment? Yes it keeps you from getting sick yes the wds last longer aren't these reasons for saying get to a stable dose\lowdose. And then quit with the help or without the help of a benzo? U think I have no idea of how bad it is? Then what have I been going through for the last five days and I finally got done with wds? I was doing a half gram daily and if u minimise that I think ur undeserving of posting any advise to anyone especially if you were to read how low of a dose jay is planning on taking. Did you read everything or. Did you read what u want to read and have a childish immature rant? I am about to start my peer couceling and cd couceling training so I think I'm intellectual enough to knnow what are low doses and what are high. As for jay he was on a lot of chems and I'm glad he's tapering the way he is cuzthats what is working for him. He gave me the courtisy that you didn't and actually listened. He said whatever works best for you. Did you read that I said its case tocase person to person? That sometimes it is better to rip it off like a bandaid just like my brother did that was slamming >>>>>> mixed with meth? Hmmm. I guess that must have just been a miracle or some sort of phenomena huh? I understand a 1g a day so does that mean because I did half a gram of oxy a day make me lesser and unknowlegable of a opinated discussion of support? Nothing I said was effensive in any way. I had my gf read the whole conversation jay and I had and then what u said "out of the blue" . My gf has never used drugs and is a healthcare professional. In her opinion she agrees with me even though she really is objectionable. She says it sounds like u have used subsbefore and are fiening for it or being triggered from feelinng mis understood at one point in your addiction.. so you shouldn't point a finger whenn the finger is pointed right back at you. Again I'm going to say to jay that even though the taper is a small amount I back you 100% on staying on subs for as long as u need to feel stable and comfortable. And that day will come but not when I want it to not when a hc profession or addiction councselor sees fit but you!
    I'm sorry for stooping to roses level but its day 5 cold turkey and I'm not going to have somone that's less edjucated then I am make me sound like I am insesative to jays tapering or anyone in that matter.

    Anyways its late and this is the only person on here to really turn a positive convo into shizz
    ide like to compromisewith rose but if she's going to power trip anyone on the dos and don't of a open conversation I say maybe u need to take a chill pill and relax maybefind somthing else to do besides get mad at a randomperson hmmm

    Trent,

    Actually, Rose never used subs. She C/T'd off of painkillers. However, she is very knowledgable about subs. I don't think she was trying to start an argument or be rude.

    Rose has been on this forum for a long time. She's very helpful and supportive to all members in need of help. And one thing is for certain: she's definitely not "fiending" for anything.

    Anyway, I'm sure she meant no harm.

    Take care,
    Kat

    Morning everyone...

    hey trent how are ya? I couldn't really keep up with what you were saying about rose
    evryone including rose has been very helpful.to me...
    i wouldn't take anything personal...

    anyways to change the subject...
    drugs are horrible...the idea is not to take them...
    i know i talk about drugs a lot...but i despise them...

    I'm wanting to get my body back.to a healthy homeostasis

    been reading up on magnesium.for instance....it really is underestemated

    i was reading last night a study they did with rats using magnesium acetate

    they gave rats morphine 10 days and induced withdrawal.on day 11 with nalexone...

    they split the rats into.two groups...
    group a was adninistered the magnesium with the morphine the whole 11 days

    the second group was given just morphine...the rats given.magnesium showed little/no withdrawal upon cessitation

    and ther are countless other studies and articals on magnesium

    magnesium acts on.nmda receptors reducing tolerance
    also on the gaba receptors and a lot .of other functions in the body and cns

    symptoms of magnesium deficiency are fatigue...anxiety..irritability..insomnia.

    and all.kinds of other stuff



    anyways just thought i would share that...
    ps the supplements at the store usually contain magnesium oxide which has a really low absortion (like 5 percent)

    Epsom salt is magnesium sulfate...so soaking in epsom.salt is excellent...also diet rasin bran ..mini wheats...nuts and fruit a excellent source.... bananas are good too which also have potasium


    anyways....
    I'm definately gonna try to up my magnesium intake...oh and b6 too...b6 helps your body absorb all.kinds of things including magnesium ...

    Hey Jay!

    I'm so glad to hear you got 8 hours sleep. That's awesome. I love melatonin, mostly because it's natural and not addictive. Sounds like you're doing great!

    I read something a while back that said magnesium and potassium are helpful with anxiety, mild depression, and fatigue. The article said that most people who have those issues usually have low levels of magnesium and potassium.

    I found a great source of potassium - pure premium coconut water! It's really good, plus has the added benefit of hydration. I get tired of drinking a lot of water, so the coconut water is a nice change. It's chock full of potassium. I get it at the local health food store: Fresh & Easy and sometimes Trader Joes too.

    Have a good Sat!

    Thanks for the tip kat...i didn't even think about cocanut water..imma have to try that...and ya the potassium i think is good for energy and restless legs along with the magnesium and l-tyrosine and b-6

    And ya people.with mood disorders and addictions are usually deficient in these minerals and vitamins...
    ya that artical about magnesium you mentioned sounds spot on


    i was reading how magnesium deficiency is found in bipolar and schizophrenia as well...
    definately gonna focus on nutrition as americans in general are deficient let alone us who have addictions...
    hypoglycimia is also prevelent in people with addictions and mood disorders..
    and some studies attribute relapse and return criminal.behavour to such things....

    so ya diet is extremely important no doubt...

    anyways the tigers won! It was a blast...had so much.fun.with the kids....it was a beautiful day not a cloud in the sky

    almost drank a beer cause the vendor every five minutes was like *anyone need a beer? Ready for another beer etc everyfive minutes...lol...i spent seven bucks on a coffee instead....but almost caved...lol..
    i figured i can always have a beer next time...but its ok not too today...

    Keep in mind i.never even thought of trying to never drink again....I'm not one who runs off to the races like they say in AA...
    all those guys say they can't have just a few.... i don't have that problem....i enjoy just having one or two brewskies on occasion..and me being young still i can't agree to lifetime abstinence from beer....liquor ya maybe...

    i dunno....I'm not drinking even a beer cause I'm trying to get off subs and don't think alchohol will help...but ya know down the road maybe....call it a planned relapse i guess.... just like with the etizolam...they sittin in my safe cause i plan on using them if i need too....
    i dunno maybe its just how i feel at the moment ..
    anyways ...guess i need to think about that...


    well imma take a nap...got some.sun today and wore myself out....time to be lazy!!! Hope everyone haveing a good day too!! Jay

    Glad you had a great time today, Jay! Yup, the sun shining and all. Was sitting on the back deck with the sun warm on my face, felt good for a change. Glad you had fun at the game and the Tigers won!

    Hope you're having a lazy evening!---- Rose

    Jay looks like your taper is going well especially if you were able to go watch the Tigers play. The schedule you posted a couple of days ago looks good to me. Should help you have a somewhat soft landing tapering that low. Have a good Easter and talk to you later.

    Hey there Jay...

    Just wanted to drop in to see how you're doing tonight. You definitely should try the pure coconut water. Every time I drink it, I feel so refreshed and hydrated. There is approximately 350+ mg potassium per serving..and there's 4 servings in 1 liter container. I try to drink the whole container throughout the day since potassium is probably something I'm low on..not to mention that if it helps ward off my mild depression and extreme fatigue that's a big plus!

    Anyway, let me know how you're doing. Have a nice day with your family tomorrow.

    Yeah, pure coconut water isn't exactly cheap, but it's so worth it! I get mine at the local health food stores like Sprouts, Whole Foods, or Trader Joes. It's around the same price you mentioned, maybe a little more...like $4. But they're 1 liter containers, so it's not exactly a rip off. One container can last 2-3 days depending on how much you drink.

    I just finished a bottle from yesterday. I feel refreshed and hydrated!

    I'm so glad you've been getting more sleep with the extra melatonin.

    Hey Jay...

    No, you're not setting yourself up for disappointment. Slowly lowering our dose is the beauty of the taper plan: to have a nice, smooth landing.

    So glad to hear that you're feeling well!

    Hi Jay,

    I keep thinking the same thing. I keep waiting for something bad to happen and it doesn't. I'm so glad it's going well for you, too.

    Hey Jay!

    Glad things are getting easier for you! I remember from my anatomy class potassium plays a major role in muscle contraction/relaxation. Pretty much potassium helps muscles to relax or contract. Which in RLS your muscles over contract. Potassium and magnessium work together for relaxation. Calcium helps them to contract. Potassium works for nerve impulses for both actions, but when potassium flow out of the muscle cells is what causes the relaxation. So magnesium and potassium together would be best for RLS. Since magnesium is actually what stimulates the potassium to flow out of the muscle cells.

    Oh and magnesium does so much in the body its hard to even count. DNA synthesis (creating new cells=healing the body) Muscle function, which helps with energy/stamina. Immunity....So many things. So its definately something good to take. It would definately help with rls and help with muscle fatigue. I always forget about magnesium....I don't even have a magnesium supplement in my cabinet lol. I'm gonna have to run by GNC.
