I'm taking Norco 5/325 for my wisdom teeth. Surgeon said to alternate with Motrin. Will I have any withdrawal symptoms?

I'm taking Norco 5/325 for my wisdom teeth. Surgeon said to alternate with Motrin. Will I have any withdrawal symptoms?

History matters: I'm glad you are aware of dependency from use of narcotic drugs. Using narcotic pain medications like Norco, especially after oral surgery, is a common practice in dentistry. Alternating with Motrin helps reduce the total amount of Norco use. If you are using the dose according to your surgeon's advice, withdrawal is highly unlikely. It is more common after a long-term, or repeated use. ...Read more

Can I take Zoloft to help withdrawal symptoms from pristiq (desvenlafaxine) until I can get the pristiq (desvenlafaxine) filled tomorrow?

Not generally: A good idea to take Depression medicines intermittently or as needed. Not sure if it will help. Zoloft is quite different than Pristiq (desvenlafaxine) and may cause unwanted side effects even if taken for only 1 or 2 days. You may try any over the counter headache / nausea med which are the main side effects of "withdrawal". Maybe a Physician from your State is available on HeathTaP Prime to refill today? ...Read more

I have taken 1 mg of lorazepam as a sleep aid for the past 6 years. Will I have withdrawal symptoms if I quit taking it? I only use it for sleep.

Maybe: The good thing is that you have taken Lorazepam at bedtime for 6 years without developping tolerance. Ambien (zolpidem) can cause tolerance. Much faster. Consider trazodone or low dose Remeron that are not addictive and help sleep and anxiety. ...Read more

I was prescribed 40 mg of methadone a day for a year and my doctor just weaned me off in a week but I am still having really bad withdrawal symptoms!

That is too short: A period for withdrawal. In general, long-term use of these medications requires a minimum of one month, and sometimes as much as 3 months (rarely more) to safely get off. There are medications, such as clonidine, which can help treat the post-acute withdrawal symptoms you are llkely feeling. Talk to your doctor, or ask for a second opinion regarding the weaning. Meds to treat symptoms may help. ...Read more

How long risperidone withdrawal symptoms go I take 2 mg for about 3 years I stop it now slowly but feeling weak have no energy plz tell what I do : (?

Discuss w/ Dr!: This is one of the most difficult drugs to stop. It needs to be slow and as you see - even then it is rough! Perhaps your Dr can find a thing to see you through it. Otherwise be kind to yourself and patient. Many drop 10% every 2-4 wks - so you might take 6 mths or even more. Always think about these issues before starting another psychotropic. Discuss it w/ your Dr! ...Read more

When do the all the lexapro 10mg withdrawal symptoms stop I've been taking it for about 4 years and quit cold turkey 5days ago? I take clonazepam 0.5m

Hopefully Soon: In general it is not a good idea to stop medicines like Lexapro cold turkey especially after you been on it for several years. Usually you're supposed to taper yourself off of it. That is to say you gradually decrease the dose until you stop. I would recommend you ask your doctor or pharmacist about this. ...Read more

I was taking 6 Xanax (alprazolam) a day priscribed by my doctor, I took myself off over a week ago. How much longer will I be having withdrawal symptoms?

I was taking 6 Xanax (alprazolam) a day priscribed by my doctor, I took myself off over a week ago. How much longer will I be having withdrawal symptoms?

Dangerous: This is really dangerous, and I urge you contact your own prescribing physician immediately. Abruptly stopping xanax (alprazolam) and other benzodiazepines can cause seizures. Your body needs at least 75 hours to process xanax (alprazolam) out of your system, and your age, liver condition, & smoking can change this timing. So the length of physical withdrawal can vary. There have been published fatalities. ...Read more

What to do if I have been taking Xanax (alprazolam) for 3 weeks for panic attacks due to having to start. I was wondering if I would get any withdrawal symptoms?

How much, how often: The best ultimate treatment, long-term, for people with panic disorder is SSRI/SNRI antidepressants such as Zoloft, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor (venlafaxine) and others. Benzos should be used only until those drugs kick in and/or for breakthrough symptoms. If you have been taking them every day at least 3 times a day for 3 weeks, there may be at least mild withdrawal. The best solution is to taper the Xanax slowly ...Read more
