Alcohol Detox Symptoms Severe Fatigue
Is it normal to urinate 15 - 18 times within 24 hours with Irritable Bowel Syndrome when the only symptom that day is Fatigue? (I do NOT drink alcohol
Alcohol withdrawal: Can be dangerous without good medical support. Detox allows your body to adjust to going without alcohol without the heightened risk of seizures, hallucinations and other severe withdrawal symptoms. The question suggests you're drinking more than is healthy and that should be addressed. Abrupt discontinuation of heavy alcohol use is not a good idea without a doctor supervising. ...Read more
Librium: See the following: http://www.bjmp.org/content/benzodiazepines-revisited Time to peak concentration is related to a drug's ability to produce euphoria, and therefore create dependence. Librium would therefore be my preference. For cases of hepatic impairment, lorazepam is often chosen. Ultimately, either are effective for this indication. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: If you have to ask, the answer is probably yes. Pros: 1. You won't have to lie about drinking anymore. 2. No more hangovers and shakes. 3. End the risk to your job and relationships. 4. Less likely to be sick or die of alcoholism. 5. Stop being an embarrassment to yourself. Cons: 1. You'll have to face the fact that you have a drinking problem. 2. Others may find out (not always bad). ...Read more
If getting worse: I assume that a physician is monitoring your detox. He/she should have given you warning signs of any problems and should have also given you strict dietary advice and certain vitamins. I feel that a social worker ()msw) should also be involved. ...Read more
My wife just finished alcohol detox at an in patient and she is having bad body cramps and aches what can do to alleviate the the pain?
Is Xanax (alprazolam) xr ever used for alcohol detox in an outpatient setting? I'm using 1 mg every 4 hr and seems to be helping I am just worried about tapering.
Yes: Benzodiazepines, including Xanax (alprazolam) XR, are used for alcohol withdrawal. Valium and Librium are long acting and have been the most commonly prescribed for withdrawal. Xanax (alprazolam) XR is still relatively short acting and you may be more prone to withdrawal symptoms on tapering the dose, as opposed to Valium. Xanax (alprazolam) may be more prone to abuse than other benzodiazepines. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi, last week i was treated for alcohol detox and heart attack w/ valium. I was allergic to the dye and was flushed w/ IV urine results: creatine-20 benzos-60pass; creatine-65 benzos-1333fail; creatine-260 benzos-1999fail each 2 days apart. Why
Dont understand ?: Why you would be tested for drugs after a heart attack, i don't know. However, if you were treated with valium by doctors, this is not "failing" a drug test. When you first get a drug, it has not been metabolized yet, and drug tests measure the metabolites usually, not the parent drug. So a test becomes more positive as you metabolize more of the drug, which takes time.Initial urine was dilute. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My mother has been addicted to alcohol for 10 years she is doing a detox at home and her dr. Gave her Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) for the withdraw symptoms is this safe?
Alcohol withdrawal: Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) has no cross-tolerance with alcohol, and will not prevent its withdrawal symptoms -- including seizures. If this is truly the medication she was given for alcohol withdrawal, i respectfully suggest she get a second opinion from a psychiatrist, or another physician specializing in addiction medicine. http://community.asam.org/search/default.asp?m=basic. ...Read more
Elevated tsh, normal t4, no hypothyroid symptoms. Have recently quit caffeine / significantly reduced alcohol (in case it's adrenal fatigue). Is this likely to lower tsh? How long to see results?
No: By definition, elevated TSH is hypothyroidism. T4 is not the active one, rather it is T3 and it is ft3 that is in fact the active hormone. T4 is converted to T3 in the periphery. I would have you check the T3 level and you may need synthroid (thyroxine) as well. Neither alcohol or caffeine has anything to do with the synthesis of TSH but alcohol is converted by body into energy ATP via acetyl coe-a. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
