What nutrients does opiates deplete from the body and how do I get my energy back post recovery?

What nutrients does opiates deplete from the body and how do I get my energy back post recovery?

See below: Opiates don't deplete nutrients. What is depleted is your body's ability to make neurotransmitters. It can take months for these to return to nl. It may sound impossible, but trying to get some daily exercise (start w walking, working towards 30-60 mins/day) is one of the best things you can do. Otherwise, eat well, get support, & focus on your goals, including sobriety. Every step forward counts!

I'm always tired. What vitamins can I take that is safe that can give me more energy/motivation plus still has all the nutrients I need?

Exercise ; Low Sugar: There are no vitamins that can solve this common problem better than getting regular aerobic exercise and lowering the carbohydrate or sugar count in your calories. Moving increases energy. Eating most of your calories as proteins and limiting your sugars adds energy.

I always feel out of energy for about three hours after I eat lunch. Why is this happening?

I always feel out of energy for about three hours after I eat lunch. Why is this happening?

What are U eating: Meals heavily weighted in carbohydrates are more likely to lead to a quicker let down and this could be both your lunch and your earlier breakfast. Midday activities are often sustained more by your breakfast than your lunch, which is still being processed in your gut. A balanced breakfast with protein, fat and some carbs is more likely to sustain you midday than a quick bagel/etc.

I have gastritis and I've been dealing with it for three months now. It takes away my energy and gives me pains everyday. Is there any meds for this?

I have gastritis and I've been dealing with it for three months now. It takes away my energy and gives me pains everyday. Is there any meds for this?

Need Medical care: The diagnosis of Gastritis requires upper Endoscopy (EGD). Have you had a doctor check you and guide you yet? Gastritis is not difficult to treat yet you need supervision from a Physician. Antacids will take care of it but you have to avoid Aspirin/Motrin type of pain meds. Smoking and alcohol interfere with healing, so avoid them.

Energy bars: You send like a med student! I always keep my pockets stuffed with energy bars. One bar every two hours and plenty of water will get you through the day when you don't have time for meals.

Been coughing mucus for three weeks and now the mucus has turned to blood. No energy tried over-the-counter meds. History of broncidus.

See a doctor: This could be irritation from frequent coughing, but it could also be an indication of a more serious condition. Coughing up blood, even a little, is best evaluated by a doctor who can listen to your lungs and maybe do an imaging study like an xray.

I drank a rockstar energy drink four hours ago before skateboarding for three hours and I just took a nyquil and I want to know if im gonna die or not?

I drank a rockstar energy drink four hours ago before skateboarding for three hours and I just took a nyquil and I want to know if im gonna die or not?

No-at least not soon: Like all of us, you will die sooner or later (hopefully not for 70-80 years) but what you took will not kill you. The energy drink has some caffeine which is stimulating and the Nyquil has a cough suppressant and antihistamine that can make you drowsy, but the combination will not kill you.

Had shingles three months ago, can I get it again, feeling so tired and fatigued, not able to get energy to do anything, and have the same bad headach?

Had shingles three months ago, can I get it again, feeling so tired and fatigued, not able to get energy to do anything, and have the same bad headach?

Rethink everything: No, you will not get zoster (shingles) any time soon. Why are you still taking Valtrex when the treatment for shingles is 1 Gram 3x a day for 7 (SEVEN) DAYS. Are you in pain? Does it interfere with sleep? Cymbalta (duloxetine) will cause fatigue. Gabapentin will make you very sleepy. Lack of sleep will make you feel out of sorts. If you continue to have neuropathic pain (where?), 5% Doxepin cream will stop it.
