How can I help my grandad with withdrawal symptoms from morphine?

Get help: Seek professional help. Various medications can help with withdrawal. What I don't know is he addicted to them or has he been on them for pain and now trying to get off of them but has physical dependence. The treatment will potentially be different. People with just physical dependence may be able to slowly wean off, this does not work for addiction. Bottom line, there is good professional help. ...Read more

Wokring on getting off benzos but having horrible withdrawal symptoms. What can I do?

Go slow, work w doc: 1. A slow, gradual dose taper is best. Go especially slowly as you approach zero. This can take weeks in tough cases. 2. Decrease the daily dose, don't stretch out the time between doses. 3. Sometimes it helps to substitute a different benzo (or phenobarbital) that has a longer half-life. 4. Work closely with your prescribing doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Hi, I use 10 grams /day of phenibut for six months. I had to stop using, how long I will have withdrawal symptoms? Freddy

Hi, I use 10 grams /day of phenibut for six months. I had to stop using, how long I will have withdrawal symptoms? Freddy

Can't say for sure.: Phenibut is not available in the U.S. so I don't know potency or purity of the product you used (such info is relevant to your question.) The drug itself is out of your blood stream within 25 hours; generally that's when withdrawal symptoms are clearly noticeable. It's important to distinguish between withdrawal symptoms, cravings and the recurrence of the symptoms for which you were using it. ...Read more

Yes obtain help: You are taking the equivalent of 30mg of diazepam a day. It is important that you get help with getting off of the the lorazepam. Normally it is a psychiatrist or addiction specialist that would know best how to help you. In any event, it is dangerous and not recommended for you to try to do so on your own. It is challenging even with good help. ...Read more

How long do withdrawal symptoms of 1 year 60 mg duolexotine last? I tapered off stopped but 2 wks after one momen I feel great then I feel horrible.

Stopped too fast: Tapering off an SSRI seems to vary from person to person. Generally, the slower one tapers, the better. Many of my patients have found it useful to drop 1/2 of a dosage level per 4 weeks. Stopping the meds completely can be extended over many weeks or even a few months. It is not uncommon to feel fine initially but then crash. Speak with your doc about what makes sense for you in this proces ...Read more
