Can benzos cause teeth pain?--would it be a symptom of withdrawal...Don't see how it could be withdrawal as i still am using them carefully.

Can benzos cause teeth pain?--would it be a symptom of withdrawal...Don't see how it could be withdrawal as i still am using them carefully.

Hard to say, maybe: Benzodiazapines can be used as sedatives or muscle relaxers (among other uses). If your tooth pain is referred pain from tense or overused muscles, it could (at least conceivably) be the return of pain from the muscles but perceived as tooth pain. Benzos can be used to help destructive tooth grinding at night (due to sedation effects), but shouldn't be used in the long term for this purpose. ...Read more

Opiate withdrawal but severe discomfort that mimicks ss would tapering be a better solution to quitting the tramadol abrubtly, what to do?

Opiate withdrawal but severe discomfort that mimicks ss would tapering be a better solution to quitting the tramadol abrubtly, what to do?

Yes: If the tramadol is being prescribed, talk to the prescriber about a tapering regimen. If it is not prescribed, this is part of a substance use disorder, and you should seek help. Tapering can be done with a cross-reactive drug like buprenorphine (Suboxone) or methadone, or can be done with tramadol itself. However, counseling and a support program is also a necessary part of recovery. Good luck. ...Read more

Is it possible for you to die from drinking alcohol with klonopin (clonazepam) and antidepressants?

Is it possible for you to die from drinking alcohol with klonopin (clonazepam) and antidepressants?

Yes...: It's possible to die from drinking alcohol all by itself, if you drink enough. It's more hazardous to drink on top of Klonopin (clonazepam), since it acts like alcohol in some ways. It's also more risky to drink on top of antidepressants, as the risk of seizures increases (and the antidepressant won't work as well). "possible" to die doesn't mean it's likely, but why risk it? ...Read more

As long as I am feeling symptoms of withdraw, It will be okay to take the suboxone?

Generally yes: It is starting to sound like you are not being prescribed suboxone, but have picked it up on the street. The reason this drug is supposed to be prescribed by a doctor who has training in how to use it is so that folks can take it safely for the reason it is prescribed.

Is it possible Wellbutrin (bupropion) is causing me to feel symptoms of peripheral neuropathy? 
I

Unlikely: Wellbutrin (bupropion) would be an unusual cause for peripheral neuropathy and would search for a different explanation, at least initially. Reports of nerve toxicity in the PDR are often based on coincidental association, and do not always represent cause and effect. ...Read more

For what reason might it be that opiates cause itching and headaches?

Side effects: Opiates cause a type of cell, called a mast cell to release histamine which causes the skin to itch and is treated with anti-histamines such as vistaril (rx) or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) (otc). As for the headaches this must be a side effect that you get as many times we treat headaches with opiates. Withdrawal from opiates can cause headaches as well as other signs and symptoms. ...Read more

Will I be able to experience physical withdrawal symptoms from discontinuing 300mg of gabapentin?

Not likely: but I always recommend tapering gabapentin. if you are on 300 mg per day (100 mg three times a day), I would talk to the prescribing doctor about reducing it to 100 mg twice a day for a week or so, then 100 mg a day for a week and then stop. However, at your dose, even if you stopped completely all at once, it is unlikely to produce serious withdrawal symptoms or signs. ...Read more
